Two Teenage Girls Against the Zombie Apocalypse in The Last of Us DLC

The Last of Usfirst story DLC, “Left Behind,” is doing something that the mainstream video games industry (not to mention a lot of science fiction and fantasy storytelling intended for the mainstream) is still vary wary of: telling a story about teenage girls. That is, one that isn’t purposefully exaggerated, contains elements of parody, or intends the main character to at least partially be a focal point for the male gaze. The zombie game genre has seen fast zombies, slow zombies, zombies on vacation, has let us kill them as a team, with crazily improvised weapons, and in space. But it’s the presence of a calmly and realistically girl that really sets The Last of Us and The Walking Dead apart.

Also did I mention that Assassin’s Creed: Liberation, the only Assassin’s Creed game to star a woman (and a woman of color, no less) is out on consoles and PC this week?

Lego The Last of Us A Fake Gameplay Video

Listen, I’ve been playing a lot of Lego Lord of the Rings the past couple weeks, and I’d totally play the Rated E for Everyone Lego version of The Last of Us. All of the guns would shoot chicken legs or bananas, and extended death scenes would be a conversation between the living person and the torso of the dying person, with their legs walking around aimlessly in the background.

PS: The Walking Dead fans will want to watch this all the way through.

Did you see last night’s The Walking Dead? Man, it was crazy how Rick decided to abandon the prison to pursue his dreams of becoming a professional opera singer. And Michonne and Daryl are actually twins? And Carl’s their (time traveling, of course) father? Didn’t see that coming.

The Walking Dead, That Most Sing-Along-Friendly of Zombie Shows, Does the Monster Mash [VIDEO]

Warning for gore. No, really. This video takes a lot of The Walking Dead‘s (relatively infrequent, all things considering) shots of brains and squishes them, like a Walker’s head under the tire of a car, into two minutes. So if you like the show but find yourself flinching away from its more, er, brain-focused shots, you might want to not press play.

But for the rest of us: Enjoy The Walking Dead, sing-along version.

New The Walking Dead Webseries Explores the Dark Side of ZombieCare [VIDEO]

Life is tough during a zombie apocalypse. There’s no more Internet. Kind of a lot of death. And, as we see in new The Walking Dead webseries The Oath, a distinct lack of medical care. Episodes two and three are behind the jump. Looks like Pushing Daisies‘ Aunt Vivian (Ellen Greene) survived the apocalypse! Though it’s a decidedly different type of living dead she’s dealing with now.
