Dead State [Review]

I have mixed feelings about Kickstarter RPGs. Sometimes, as was the case with Wasteland 2 and Shadowrun Returns, crowd funded development is a great way to get old-school inspired games into a market where they normally wouldn’t do very well. If Kickstarter didn’t exist, I would never have been able to experience such gems. Other … Continue reading

The Walking Dead Game: Season Two [Review]

So, as any zombie aficionado should know, the final episode of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead: Season Two came out earlier this week. Way back in 2012, I positively reviewed the previous season and its 400 Days DLC, so you can probably guess I was pretty excited when Season Two was announced. I originally planned to … Continue reading

Path of the Dead by Timothy Baker [review]

As you guys must know by now, I’m somewhat obsessed with zombies. I’ve seen basically every zombie movie in existence, eagerly watched all four seasons of The Walking Dead and have played more Resident Evil than probably anyone at Capcom has. I own multiple copies of all the George Romero movies (even the crappy ones). … Continue reading

Cell by Stephen King [Review]

So, this review has been a long time coming. Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows that if there’s two things I love the most in the realm of horror, those things are Stephen King and zombies. With that in mind, it’s actually pretty surprising that Stephen King’s 2006 novel Cell evaded my attention for … Continue reading

The Walking Dead: 400 Days [Review]

It occurred to me today that it’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed anything on this blog. Coincidentally, it’s also been ages since I’ve made any significant mention of zombies — and one would expect the blog of any respectable writer of post-apocalyptic fiction to contain a lion’s share of zombie references.  Luckily, Telltale … Continue reading

Sonnet of the Dead (more poetry)

So, this is what my poor blog has been reduced to, has it? Updates barely just managing to stick to the schedule, writing craft articles all but gone, and the last book review was written over two months ago. Something feels a little dead around here…perhaps even a little undead.  No, in all seriousness, I’ve just … Continue reading

The Walking Dead: The Game [Review]

Note: This review was written when only the first two episodes of the game were available. However, the later episodes don’t really change up the game that much, so please consider my sentiments in this review to apply to the completed game as well. ### When I set up this blog/website, I said that I’d occasionally … Continue reading
