Zombies, Supervillains and the DC Universe

Posted in Books/Comics with tags , , , , , , on July 10, 2009 by hunterchad

Check it out, undead and those that fight them!  DC Comics is kicking off the summer with a major comic book event beginning in the Green Lantern series.  The event chronicles the battle between the Green Lantern Corps and the Black Lanterns – the resurrected dead of heroes and villains alike!  From just the prologue, it has undead, superheroes, super-villains and even necrophilia!

This is not your Dad’s Superman, Batman or anyone else.

Get ready for the “Blackest Night!”

RIP – Michael Jackson

While the world takes note that the “King of Pop” has passed away, we, the zombies, undead and those that fight them, take note that a great creative talent has died.  Despite the media circus attraction that Jackson had deteriorated into, none of us can ignore his contributions with the movie-music-videos of “Ghosts,” “Torture” and, of course, “Thriller.”

Rest in Peace, Michael Joseph Jackson. 1948-2009

The Sick or the Dead? Which do you prefer?

Posted in books, Books/Comics, essays, games, Video Games with tags , , , on June 20, 2009 by hunterchad

They started out as supernatural nightmares, rising, shambling from graves to do a master’s bidding.  Then zombies moved onto scientific origins, corpses reanimating because of toxic waste or radiation.  Now, the undead are losing their undead-ness and being shoved aside for infected masses, not so much reanimated corpses as they are the savage majority.

Why is the zombie population shifting from the graveyard to the lab?  The two sides are represented everywhere – “Night of the Living Dead” vs. “28 Days,” “The Laughing Corpse” vs. “I am Legend” and “Resident Evil” vs. “Left 4 Dead.”  Which do you prefer – actual dead corpses back up and on the prowl or your next-door-neighbor gone a little crazy?

Resident Evil 5 – Greatest or Racist?

Posted in essays, games, reviews, Video Games with tags , , , , on June 19, 2009 by hunterchad

resi5-logo Although it’s been out for several months, Resident Evil 5 has accomplished several major achievements:

  • It is a sales record-breaking installment in a trend setting game series
  • It boasts some of the most realistic and state-of-the-art graphics that any modern gaming console could offer
  • It has been accused of being racist

Upon the game’s initial development, there were some groups and players who accused the fifth installment in Capcom’s Survival Horror series of being racist.  With the main protagonist being Caucasian being set against hordes of infected Africans, there arose a sentiment that the game had violent racial overtones.  In the end, an international committee did view the game and decide that it was not racist.  However, the question is raised: did this committee include minority gamers familiar with the series?

Resident Evil 5 is not racist.  It is one of the greatest games to be released in the last few years.  As a minority gamer familiar with the series, I can say that the gameplay is far from racist.  The action is indicative of the locale.  Case closed.  Resident Evil 4, which was set in Spain, was not accused of being racist although it was a similar setup, a Caucasian fighting infected minorities (in this case Spaniards.)  Resident Evil 5 also includes in its cast two other heroes, Sheva Alomar and Stone, both of whom are competent, three-dimensional and African.

Resident Evil 5 does not evolve beyond its issue of black and white because there never is an issue.  As a matter of fact, there are a blend of colors in the infected masses attacking and ethnicity is never mentioned.  Those who have accused the game of racism have not played it and are not familiar with the background story and its globe-trotting time-line.  In the end, it is small-mindedness that keeps us seeing black and white instead of good and evil, right and wrong, survival and survival horror.

This is an old one, but since it’s never been posted here, I present to you George W. Bush’s press conference wherein he discusses his plan to protect the United States against an impending zombie attack.  These are the serious issues, people.
