Plague Inc. IOS.

Plague Inc. IOS.

“Plague Inc. is a unique mix of high strategy and terrifyingly realistic simulation. Can you infect the world?
Your pathogen has just infected ‘Patient Zero’. Now you must bring about the end of human history by evolving a deadly, global Plague whilst adapting against everything humanity can do to defend itself.” Ndemic Creations.

Honestly I couldn’t begin to tell you how much cash I have spent on apps for my various I-devices. Whether it is the kids’ iPods, me and wifey’s iPhone’s or our iPads – it seems like there is a new cool game or writing app or flavor of the week just waiting on the app store to rob me of my hard earned dollars. With credit cards and iTunes cards it’s so damn easy to idly spend money; without really noticing it. Ahhh it’s just $0.99, that’s nothing, no big deal. After about five or six hundred times it adds up! Anyway more to the point; I tend to lean toward the RPG, Sim or Strategy areas of the games categories, and being the horror addict that I am, I try to scoop up anything that looks good, scary, bloody, zombie (not Plants vs Zombies – I’m not that guy), crazy or otherwise. I purchased Plague Inc. quite awhile ago and have enjoyed countless hours of phone/iPad gaming since. The game is basically a global plague outbreak simulator. One can control the evolution of virus’s, bacteria, fungal spores, nano-plagues and more; tailoring them through a realistic gene based customization process. You want your virus to be highly effective in hot climates and transmitted by mosquito’s; sure why not. How about you strain of bacteria annihilating the western world through it’s specialization in drug resistance and cold climates; causing insanity and sores in the process, yep. The various combinations determine how lethal a plague is, or how fast and where it would spread. Good times. The game takes place on a map of earth with all the major countries represented. Realistic news tickers highlight world events while keeping you informed of the emerging threat of plague. The fun really starts when the global death toll begins to rise while the various countries begin to combat the plague. If your a fan of viral outbreak apocalyptic shit and have and extra $0.99 in your jeans pockets, then buy Plague Inc. Apocalyptic mayhem, you control! Plague Inc. on the App Store.

Next Up: buying another app, and another, and another, and another, and……

WWZ. 2013

WWZ. 2013

As a zombie pandemic traverses the globe, United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) travels the world trying to find a way to stop the pandemic that is defeating armies and collapsing governments. World War Z is an upcoming post-apocalyptic horror film directed by Marc Forster and written by Matthew Michael Carnahan. It is based on the novel of the same name by Max Brooks. Courtesy Wikipedia.
Director: Marc Forster
Story by: Max Brooks
Screenplay: Matthew Michael Carnahan, J. Michael Straczynski
Producers: Ian Bryce, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Brad Pitt
Stars: Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, David Morse
Budget: $125,000,000
Release date: June 20, 2013 (initial release)

I strongly recommend reading World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War before this flick comes out; it is by far the best zombie fiction written (an I’ve read a ton of it), in my humble opinion ofcourse. Can Pitt and $125 million budget pull it off? I hope so, this thing can go two ways, absolute shit or amazing adaptation, hopefully its the latter. Can’t wait for this. Check out the trailer, read the book and prepare for the hordes! WWZ @ IMDb.

The Mullbury Project

Honestly I’m in love with anything that mixes horror and sci-fi; be it games, movies, books, tv series, cosplay chicks, you name it. Add to that a few elements of PA (post apocalyptic for the laymen) and I’m all over that shit. While surfing Youtube this morn for more obscure and less obscure horror trailers I stumbled across this interesting trailer by the guys who co-wrote Hitman Absolution (ya the game), Martin Brennan and Michael B. Jackson. I couldn’t really find to much information on The Mulbury Project other than a FB page and some trailers scattered here and there, but what I do know is that the trailer looks pretty cool and so do the concept pics. Slated for release sometime in 2013 (lets hope so), I’m watching it! The Mulbury Project on Facecrack.
