'The Walking Dead' Mid-season Finale Compared To The Comics

SPOILER ALERT: Shit goes down. Also, sorry for completely ruining the mid-season finale if you haven’t already seen it (Why haven’t you seen it yet!?). Here’s a side-by-side comparison of scenes from episode 408 and issues 46-48 of the comics. Pretty cool to see how close they stuck to the books even though the Governor should have showed up with the tank at the end of season three, but it’s major discrepancies like that keep the show fresh and make it its own unique beast.

Why George A. Romero Won’t Direct An Episode Of ‘The Walking Dead’
Interesting bits from a conversation the godfather of zombie horror had with The Big Issue.
When asked if zombies will ever lose their appeal.

Not in my book! Once they bleed out of pop culture I’ll be able to go back and do them again. I don’t want to touch them now. Gosh, they are all over the place.The Walking Deadis the number one television series in the States,World War Z, games, commercials… Ugh! It’s too much!

So, in a nutshell, zombies are currently too mainstream for the dude who made them famous and he won’t make any more zombie movies until they aren’t cool anymore.
When asked how it feels to be the father of zombies.

It feels like I don’t have a horse in the race. They asked me to do a couple of episodes of The Walking Dead but I didn’t want to be a part of it. Basically it’s just a soap opera with a zombie occasionally. I always used the zombie as a character for satire or a political criticism and I find that missing in what’s happening now.

Okay, sorry Mr. Romero, but A.) the tension between human characters in the face of the undead onslaught is was made me fall in love with your movies in the first place and B.) there’s kind of a shit ton of zombies in The Walking Dead. As for zombies being used as political criticism, that doesn’t become obvious until the end of Night of the Living Dead and maybe halfway through Day of the Dead. If anything, The Walking Dead turns the concept of a zombie apocalypse into a microscope examining the primal core of what makes us human.
Maybe he turned it down because it’s like having your hot ex-girlfriend’s trendier, more attractive new fiancé ask you to make a speech at their wedding reception. Or… maybe he actually meant all those things he said. What do I know. I’m just a blogger who watches TV and occasionally masturbates way too much. And by occasionally I mean all the time.

English And Japanese Covers For The Zombie Survival Guide
The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks (who also wrote World War Z) has been available in English since 2003. Now, 10 years later, Japan will finally be armed with the know-how required to survive the inevitable zombie uprising when the Japanese version of the book is released this August.
While the typography on the Japanese version is a vast improvement, we’re not too sure a kid in a tree with binoculars is anywhere near as cool as a shotgun rifle and a machete.

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 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.

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.
Trailer below.

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.

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.
