Like about a bazillion other people in the world, I am very excited for the release of Guitar Hero 4 (I own a Wii and so I can't get Rock Band 2 until the middle of November), and, as such, I went and reserved a full band kit this past weekend. I reserved my copy at one of those game stores where you can trade in old games for cash because I had a stack of old games that I never played anymore.
If you've never done this before, basically they tell you that you can have nothing in cash for your game or you can have a bunch of store credit. I took the store credit and paid to reserve of the game with the money. Of course, I had some left over so I picked up a copy of House of the Dead: 2 & 3, which is awesome because you just get to shoot a bunch of zombies. There is literally nothing to do but aim at zombies and shoot.
After spending a few hours shooting zombies, I remembered this blog post I had read about a game called Human Vs. Zombies that people are playing on college campuses. It's one of those ridiculous
Unlike those games where people do fake fights to the death, HvZ is basically just a huge game of tag. Zombies try to tag people to change them to zombies while the humans can "stun" zombies by shooting them with a nerf gun (or other weapons, I guess).
I'm going to be honest - this sounds like a fun PE game, but not something I would just do in my free time when I was in college. The biggest reason? People who take it too seriously, like the hombre in this video.
Ok, the biggest reason is because you'd look like a tool, but the second reason is guys like that. That said, they do use nerf guns, and you've got to respect that.
Well, maybe respect is the wrong word...
I guess you can learn more about HvZ at the official website.
Have a good week.
