Chances are now that many of you fellow gamers are enjoying playing your brand new Wii U system that just came out this past Sunday (if you’re curious about the system, CLICK HERE). One game in particular for the system, Ubisoft’s ZombiU, is actually a sequel to a game released 26 years, in fact, many people don’t even realize that it’s even a sequel at all. At first is may seem that the oddly-spelled title was a reference to Nintendo’s console — as with their history of adding “Super” in many Super Nintendo games, “64″ at the end of Nintendo 64 titles, “DS” or “3DS” in some form on Nintendo DS games, and “Wii” to many Wii titles — but it’s actually a reference to its predecessor, entitled Zombi.
Oh ThinkGeek, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways….well, forget counting.
This Dismember-Me Zombie Doll is a 12-inch plush doll available at ThinkGeek and only costs about $13. It’s got gore, intestines and the sound of cracking bones when you pull off any of its limbs and head. Actually, there’s really no need to go into any further detail into what this nice little toy is about. Read the rest of this entry
Sorry fellow nerds, but no “The Great Gatsby” hat-trick/triple crown today. However, I think this will do just fine.
Hockey and horse-racing terms aside, when it comes to education in America, we certainly can do better; we are declining in science and math, and many of our citizens are unable to even point out familiar states, provinces and countries on a map. One could assume that this decline could in fact be the first step to a probable zombie apocalpse, and if so, thank goodness for educator David Hunter. Hunter, a fan of geography AND zombies, developed a full middle school geography curriculum taught in the context of a Zombie Apocalypse. His project combines textbooks, teaching plans, and creative role-playing simulation to engage learning. Teachers and students will be able to learn real world geographic concepts by learning and applying their knowledge to survive in a world flooded by zombies with help of the curriculum’s books and learning materials.
