Bite Me - The Gamer's Zombie Apocalypse Series

I've been a gamer almost all my life. I had an Atari 2600 joystick in my hand from the time I learn to sit up, and I've burned through every gaming platform since. Yes, dear internet - my name is Erin, and I'm a nerd.

And like all nerds, I've dreamed that skills I've acquired blasting baddies, head-shotting noobs, and dominating pixels would some day be humanity's only hope for survival...and then I wake up and go back to filling out TPS reports like the corporate monkey I am.

Halloween Countdown - 3 Days to go!

OHNOYOHBOYOHBOYOHBOY!!! It's almost time for Halloween!!!!!!

So if you're looking to kill some time, and for some reason HAVEN'T played the original Dead Rising - now's the time. Dead Rising 2 was just released, and Amazon slashed the price of the original to $10!!! And I bet if you looked, you could probably find it even cheaper used. Unfortunately, I think the original was only available on the XBOX360.

Trailer: "Dead Rising 2" Coming August 31st

"Yo these zombies are pimps, son!" Or at least that's what I think the dialogue should be when you see a zombie rocking a sideways baseball cap and walking with a limp. "Zombie Thugz", that should be the title of the new "Dead Rising 2" trailer that you can check out below. And there should be some Eminem playing in the background. That "Lose Yourself" song from "8 Mile" maybe. And there should be a zombie Nicole Kidman. I don't know what the hell I'm talking about anymore.

Trailer: Live Action "Dead Rising" Movie Coming To Xbox 360

I don't understand one word in the "Dead Rising" trailer, well other than when they say "Dead Rising" but the rest is completely lost on me. What I do know is that the film is based on the much loved video game and it'll be hitting Xbox 360's marketplace sometime in the near future. I have no idea what language the final product will be in but from the looks of things a terrible voiceover isn't really going to hurt anything.

Horror Headline: Thursday January 28th, 2009

Actress Zelda Rubinstein, best known for her role as Tangina in Tobe Hooper's classic "Poltergeist," died of natural causes on Wednesday. She was 76.

Have you longed to feel the rancid breath of a giant ape on your face as he leaps over your head to attack a rampaging Tyrannosaurus Rex? If so, you're in the luck. Filmmaker Peter Jackson has helped Universal Studios relaunch their "King Kong" theme park ride, which will open its doors this summer. Remember to pack your banana hammock.

The first trailer for Capcom's upcoming live-action adaptation of "Dead Rising" has appeared online. It's cheap, it's ugly, and it's extremely violent. In other words, I'm giddy with excitement.

Anchor Bay recently announced they have acquired the rights to Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo's "After Life," a new horror/thriller starring Christina Ricci, Justin Long, and Liam Neeson. When this thing will see the light of day is still anybody's guess.

In Real People News: 

What do 18 year-old female werewolves do for fun? For starters, they use pocket knives to severe the heads of lost dogs. Time permitting, they boil the skulls.

I'm no parent, but I'm pretty sure strapping your baby to the wall with duct tape isn't in the instruction manual. Neither is documenting the event with your digital camera.

When you're hanging out in the parking lot at the local mall, the last thing you expect is to be savagely attacked by a wandering cobra. Destro was not immediately available for comment.

Dead Rising 2 Gameplay Trailer - Chainsaws!

Even though zombie games are a dime a dozen these days, I'm a bit more excited about "Dead Rising 2" than the rest. The original was an innovator in the genre when it came out for the 360 years ago, and was a hit despite it's tremendous difficulty. Late this morning, the first gameplay trailer was thrown on the hungry masses, and I like what I see, especially in the last 10 seconds or so:
