So I’ve noticed that X Box LIVE is always pushing “Zombie Stuff” in my face. Whether I’m simply trying to play a game, access YouTube, Netflix, or any other app, I can’t get through without being enticed to watch zombie movies or play zombie games. So this means that Microsoft either:
- Doesn’t feel that the American obsession with zombies is going away any time soon
- Wants us to be prepared for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
While I consider the two equally plausible, what matter is that they recently rolled out a new game called State of Decay, which so far has garnered some positive reviews. I downloaded the game and enjoyed the hour or so I’ve been able to put it into it. It has a very MMO feel to it, though multi-player isn’t (yet) an option. Not all gamers are familiar with MMO so if you’re someone that has only casually gamed, think of Grand Theft Auto, but with zombies.
On a side-note: According to the game, the main character is holding a 2×4. But this “2×4” looks suspiciously like a macuahuitl, but without the obsidian teeth.
