    Or double tap.

    When you don’t have a shotgun, always double tap…

    I liked the concept of the game being a true survival horror experience.

    But then why have Resident Evil Style Zombies that can spit some type of goo at you from long range? In all the zombie fiction I’ve seen before Resident Evil showed up, there was no zombies like this.

    Red Flag has been brought up.I was already worried that this game would turn out to be like Red Steel 1, over hyped, cg trailers, and gameplay that “looks” good.

    I wonder how long this game will stay exclusive, as Ubisoft have said in a few articles on other sites that it will definitely debut on the Wii-U but might not stay only there. With Sony officially announcing today a few games where you use the Vita as a controller, a la the Wii U, and Microsoft showing off that Smart Glass thing back at E3, I wonder if how long this will stay in one place. 

    • Anon-non

      well the motion control on the vita isn’t as good enough, and from gameplay i’ve seen times when you had to aim and stuff. also, the glass has no buttons. maybe they’ll modify it, maybe they’ll omit it for multiplatform.

  • I probably won’t survive very long at all.

    Though, honestly, this game probably won’t be very long either. One whole game is a looooong time to try to survive without getting bitten.

    • well you switch survivors when you get bitten so maybe each survivor has a different location or scenario. interested to see how this mechanic works

    “Nothing is truly dead until you blow its head off”
    well, what do you know, never expected that I would see my Zombie Video Game Killing motto when I checked Siliconera.

  • Göran Isacson

    Question- is that a throneroom in the trailer, or just some guy in a fancy chair? And if they can smell people, why the focus on staying quiet? They SMELL him, he can’t exactly make his scent sneak around.

    Also, ravens are immune to the virus? They must be if they can snack on the dead without turning zombie-birds. And did that man they quote at the beginning really exist, or are they just making up old doomsday sayers now?

  • How ’bout Check the Back-seat and Look out for bathroom/ANY ROOM?? Tht should be important enough.

    Is tht some high ranking British guy!??? D*mn… The ZB can’t climb stuff…..ok. But they can smell+hear us D: And wht up w/h the religious talk….always creep me out. (And reminds me of a certain b*stard frm HSotD)
