I loved the first Resident Evil Revelations. It took the series back (somewhat) to its original survival horror roots, and it did it quite well. Sure there were no traditional zombies to dispatch, but the new faceless monster enemy types more than made up for that. Other than the rather good single player, there was a raid mode. It was essentially a collection of side missions which had players fighting enemies across the game’s locales with the goal of getting a good ranking. It was a ton of fun. Pre-ordering the second game will earn you extra content for the mode, at least, if you own a PlayStation that is.

As much as I love spending time clicking away behind my PC, there are times when I want to venture out into the real world. Sure it’s buggy and can use a good few updates, but the graphics are just so darn amazing. Holy hell, look at that Taxi in HD! Anyways, sometimes it just feels like there is nothing to do outside. Kiss those days goodbye (especially if you live in Cape Town). Zombiegamer has a good few events hidden up their shambled sleeves…

From my own personal experience, January is a terrible month to be a gamer. New releases are about as scarce as the love I get at Lazygamer HQ, and cash is about as rare as the kind of steak that Geoff likes to eat. You’d better save some Christmas and New Year's money though, because there’s actually a decent release happening towards the end of January. Are you ready for Dying Light?

The Walking Dead Season 2 took a damn long time to reach its conclusion, not because of the actual story, but thanks to the delay between each episodic release. The first episode was released way back in December 2013 for PC, while the conclusion landed just earlier this week. I finished the tale last night, and I’m here to tell you if it’s a story worth living.

I really saw and did a lot at Gamescom. There was tons of gameplay footage and demos of upcoming games, as well as interviews with the people who helped create them. What I lacked was actual hands-on game time. I was quite chuffed on our last day, because my very last appointment was for Dying Light, a game I’ve been excited for since it was announced.

It’s clearly an age of remaster. The original Resident Evil blew people away back in 1996, establishing what would go on to be one of the biggest zombie franchises ever. It was a game fans really loved, so much so that it warranted a complete REmake in 2002 for the Gamecube, which was then RE-released on the Wii. It looks like that REmake is now due for some REmastered treatment.

I’m a massive coward when it comes to horror games, normally implementing a series of actions that has my character flailing around and wasting ammo like a cast member of The Expendables. Techland’s Dead Island games have been a slightly less scary reprieve for me however. According to Geoff though, I’m going to extcrete bricks when I get to go hands-on with their next undead title, Dying Light.

Love it or hate it, Telltale Games' approach to interactive story-telling combined with choose your own adventure decision making is here to stay. Some may argue that it isn't compelling gameplay, yet popular demand and appreciation seems to prove otherwise. I fully enjoyed The Walking Dead Season One, and so far it seems that Season Two will be equally addictive and compelling. I'm avoiding any spoilers for Season One and Two for those who haven't played it, so if you still need to play the game (and really, you should) you can carry on reading without "the fear".

What the hell, Japan? You continue to amaze and terrify me. Onechanbara Z Kagura with Nonono! is the latest game in that bizarre series about the undead, tits and swords, and here’s a trailer for the game, passed off as a documentary about “The Applied Sciences of Sexy & Grotesque Zombie Hunting.” Yes, really. It’s in English, so you’ll have no trouble understWHAT IS THIS?

Out of all the games arriving with the Xbox One, Dead Rising 3 looks like the most fun. It’s massive, gorgeous and clearly benefitting from all those extra horses under the Xbox One hood. Performance that now allows dozens of unique zombies to start shuffling towards your tasty, nutritious braaaaaiiiinsss…

One of the most surprising games at E3 this year, was Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden. Old school, challenging and filled with enough gore to give concerned mothers a set of collective heart attacks, the game is pure fun. And it has zombies. But not your regular run of the mill mouth-breathers. It has these guys who helped liven up the game when I first played it.

Techland, the guys who made zombie-slashing action RPG Dead Island are busy readying up a whole new zombie game, but this one’s more of a first-person survival horror. It has an expansive urban environment to explore, and has players scavenging for supplies to survive - with a bit of Mirror’s Edge-styled free-running thrown in for good measure. It also looks really, really good. Here’s 12 minutes of it for your grim enjoyment.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is getting its last DLC - Apocalypse at the end of this month. It offers four multiplayer maps, two of which are all new. Then it also offers a new zombie map, because no game is complete without a zombie DLC. But this one looks cool: we get to see WWI inspired dieselpunk design.
