Zombies PSA of the Day

Another one of the things that didn’t make it into my The Last of Us review yesterday: There were a number of times that I de-stressed from playing it with Plants Vs. Zombies 2, to the point where I started to feel bad about how disgusted the characters of The Last of Us would be with a game that makes the zombie menace “cute.”

The Last of Reviews: A Very Late Review of The Last of Us

I’m offering you a very late review of The Last of Us for a number of reasons. Primarily, because Naughty Dog reached out to us specifically to offer a review copy, not something that happens very often to The Mary Sue. More specifically, I’m offering it to you because our usual reviewer, Becky Chambers, does not own a PS3. Which is partially why you’re getting it so late, because I don’t usually have to factor in “playing a video game” to my job obligations. And since I’m not usually a game reviewer, and you’re not usually getting reviews from me on this site, lets get some expository information out of the way before I dive into the meat of explaining how The Last of Us is one of the strongest emotional experiences I’ve had playing a video game. And, you know, it’s pretty damn good with its female characters as well.

The First Trailer For The Walking Dead Season 4 Makes It Look Like A Whole New Show

I’m not sure if I should attribute this feeling to new showrunner Scott Gimple’s takeover, or just the talented person who put this trailer together, but this is a compelling look at The Walking Dead Season 4. Even though I won’t be watching. Will you?

Remember When Deep Silver Apologized For Selling A Woman’s Dismembered Body With Dead Island? They’re Still Selling It.

Back in January we were made aware of a special edition of Deep Silver’s Dead Island: Riptide which came with a headless, armless torso of a woman in a bikini along with the game. We were not amused. Deep Silver then issued an apology for offending so many people but decided, “What the heck? We’re going to continue selling it anyway.” Also, boobs.
