New Black Ops 2 ‘Uprising’ DLC Brings Crazy New Maps And Star-Studded Zombies Campaign
The maps look cool and it’ll be nice to have something like Firing Range from Black Ops 1 back in the mix, but holy shit the new Zombies mode looks sick! A bunch of gangster dudes played by Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joey Pantoliano and Michael Madsen? Yeah, count me in.
The Walking Dead Gets A 90’s Intro
Yesterday we posted a 90’s Breaking Bad intro, and now we have a VHS-tastic nostalgiafied Walking Dead throwback complete with fuzzy VCR effects and cheesy mood music.
Thanks to Chad for sending this in!
The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Blu-Ray Case Might Scare Small Children
This is awesome for a few reasons.
- It lights up
- It can actually be filled with water so the heads float
- It was designed by muthafuckin’ Todd McFarlane!
McFarlane also designed the Season 2 Limited Edition case, but this trumps it in pretty much every way. I’m totally putting little Santa hats on my zombie heads and making the whole into a snow globe for Christmas.
Check out MTV Geekfor a bunch more pictures and some video clips.

Pre-order: The Walking Dead Season 3
Gameplay Trailer & Release Date For That ‘Walking Dead’ FPS
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct follows the Dixon boys, Daryl and Merle, as they fight for survival and kill dead things while trekking through the Georgia countryside. Both characters are also voiced by their AMC TV series actors, Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker.
In addition to the all the undead-slaying action, the game will also feature a survival element where you’ll have to scrounge for food, water, and supplies to stay alive. Kind of like The Hatchet or Castaway, only in a post-zombie-apocalypse setting.
Both GameStop and Amazon have their own exclusive DLC pre-order packs, but the GameStop version also comes with a severed ear keychain if you’re into that sort of thing. Check it:
- GameStop Herd Mode Challenge – How many frenzied flesh-eaters can you survive against before joining their ranks? Take on endless waves of walkers, each more dangerous than the last, in the all-new Herd Mode. Each wave of undead held off brings with it a new outbreak of hungry biters and new opportunities to rack up an even higher score.
- Amazon Walker Execution Pack – Give yourself an edge (or five) with this ‘unique’ weapon kit. The Amazon Walker Execution Pack adds multiple melee options to your arsenal, including a survival knife, sawtoothed machete, kukri, reinforced hatchet, and advanced machete. With ammo scarce and the undead attracted to loud noises, a sharp, silent blade might just be your most trusted companion.
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct drops March 19, 2013 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The WiiU version arrives March 26.

CDC Zombie Outbreak Safety Kit
This classy zombie safety kit concept by Sam Proctor is proof that just because the world is ending doesn’t mean good design goes out the window.
From the artist:
The CDC Outbreak Survival Kit is a package containing “government issued” supplies and information to all people of the United States so that they may safety outlast the zombie apocalypse. The kit contains four brochures of useful information, one flare gun, ID cards, a respirator and a letter from the head of the CDC.
Epic Zombie Themed Wedding Photo
To fully understand the awesomeness of this picture you NEED to check out the timelapse video below of how it was PhotoShopped into the supreme righteousness above.
Resident Evil Themed Butcher Shop Sells Severed Human Body Parts. Yes, Even Wieners.
Of course, they’re not real body parts, just regular ol’ slabs of dead animal made to look like the good stuff. I mean… ¬_¬
Capcom is currently sponsoring a little pop-up art gallery/butcher shop at the Smithfield Meat Market in East London to promote the launch of Resident Evil 6/make people throw up/hungry. It’s called Wesker & Son Wholesale Meats after characters from the game. Clever.
You can also buy sausages shaped like dicks. They even come in Caucasian and blizzack modes, so that’s cool I guess.
The money raised will go to the UK’s Limbless Association to help amputees. Kind of a jerk move in a back-handed sort of way. Like some guy at Capcom’s marketing department was like, “Hey, you guys know what’d be really funny in an ironic kinda’ way?”
Still, though. I wonder what those schlongs taste like.

This weekly post will feature starting on ALBOTAS.com and presented/created by Drawn Words called 50 great video games.

Hope you enjoy this bit.
Red Band Trailer For ‘Cockneys vs Zombies’
For those who prefer their British zombie comedies without romance, here’s the new red band trailer for Cockneys vs Zombies. It looks like Shaun of the Dead, only with a shit ton of guns, way more F-bombs, and none of that mushy lovey stuff. Alan Ford is also in it. He played Brick Top (“Feed ‘em to the dogs!”) in Snatch. The plot is about a bunch of amateur criminals fighting their way through a zombie-filled London. So, yeah, pretty much a Guy Ritchie flick with zombies it.
Warning: Trailer below has some NSFW language.
Cockneys vs Zombies hits theaters August 31, 2012.

‘Shaun Of The Dead’ Meets ‘Streets Of Rage’
If Shaun of the Dead was a beat-‘em-up arcade from the 90’s, we’re pretty sure it’d look exactly like this piece by Aled Lewis for Gallery 1988’s six annual Crazy 4 Cult show. The exhibit kicks off this Thursday in NYC. If you’re in the area, be sure stop by and check it out in person.
