There’s just over 15 hours to go until the much-anticipated Left 4 Dead 2 is released, and this Zombiephile can hardly wait! With new gameplay modes (Scavenge, Realism), new weapons (including the much-vaunted melee weapons), four new characters, and all new special zombies to slay, Left 4 Dead 2 promises to be a substantial improvement over the first Left 4 [...]
Just when you thought House of the Dead was dead and gone, the Nintendo Wii brings it back to life – Grindhouse style!

Well, if you weren’t already crapping your pants with anticipation for Left 4 Dead 2, you’ll probably do so after seeing this Left 4 Dead 2 gameplay video – it’s the Bayou Cabin level.
This new Left 4 Dead 2 trailer (supposedly a leaked Left 4 Dead 2 trailer) is quite possibly the best video game trailer I’ve ever seen. Without a doubt, it’s the best zombie game trailer of all time.
The demo version of Left 4 Dead 2 will become available for gameplay on October 27th…for those people lucky enough to have pre-ordered the zombie game.

Well, Australian zombiephiles, you can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Apparently people at Valve and the Australian game classification board have been reading this zombie blog, because they’ve gone ahead and approved a modified version of Left 4 Dead 2 for sale in Australia.
Fans of the wildly popular zombie game will recall that the Australian game classification board had refused the game for classification citing realistic, high-impact violence.
