Call me crazy…

Ok…anyone playing Plants vs Zombies notice that the Michael Jackson Back Up Dancer/Zombie looks a little like Chris “The Birdman” Anderson from the Denver Nuggets? Look…here’s some photos for comparison:

Am I right? Anyone? Anyone? Maybe it’s just me.

Oh…and GO MAGIC!

Meet George Fan.

I posted about it before, but with all the new reviews for Plants vs Zombies, I thought I would post this interview with the game’s creator, George Fan.

This is the perfect zombie game for someone like me, I tried to play Left 4 Dead but kept going in circles, repeatedly saying,”Ready guys?” I’m amazed my team didn’t shoot me in the first 5 minutes. I can handle throwing watermelons and shooting pea pods at the zombies alot better.

I love Plants vs Zombies!

Thanks to this review from Wired, I’ve now got an awesome new time waster called Plants vs Zombies. From Popcap games, here’s the description:

“A mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home, and your only defense is an arsenal of 49 zombie-zapping plants. Use peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more to mulchify 26 types of zombies before they can reach your front door.

Each zombie has its own special skills, so you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all. But be careful how you use your limited supply of greens and seeds… as you battle the fun-dead, obstacles like a setting sun, creeping fog and a swimming pool add to the challenge. And with five game modes to dig into, the fun never dies!”

This game is really funny and completely addicting. Two hours blew by before I realized I had not charged my laptop enough and I got the black screen of death right when the Michael Jackson “Thriller” Zombie entered the screen. Frak. Sure, it’s not Left 4 Dead. There’s not much gore except for the rolling zombie heads but it’s not meant to be. Give it a try and I think you will be amazed at how much fun it is. It did seem to easy in the beginning, more like a kids game, but as you progress thru the different levels you realize it’s become a challenging game of strategy. Click here to try it out for FREE.

Warriors…come out and play.

It’s the 30th anniversary of The Warriors…30 years…geez I’m feeling old. I was in love with that movie, alot of it had to do with a bare chested Michael Beck. It was definitely a quintessential 70’s/early 80’s movie with all the feathered hair and shirtless leather vests…oh yeah and the disturbing Baseball Furies…anyone remember them? To celebrate the 30th anniversary, The Warriors is being turned into a comic book series, with a new video game to follow later this year. Check out the movie trailer, I swear it’s the same voiceover guy from Tarantino’s fake trailer ad for Machete.

Zombies and Brain Munchin’

laststand2If you love Zombie killin’…and really…who doesn’t…check out this game…The Last Stand 2.

Let me offer you a word of advice before you start the killin’. When you pick up survivors, keep this in mind. They are a bunch of sissies who will ditch you the minute things start looking bad and leave you to get your brain munched on. You’ve been officially warned. Have fun!
