‘To zombie, or not to zombie, that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows to the knee of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of the undead.’ Clever chap that Shakespeare, accurately foretelling that TSA would run a poll to decide once and for all if we bored of zombies as they are shuffling in to almost every game these days.
Once again you voted with your mouse buttons and we have a definite answer, game designers of the world take note as the community of The Sixth Axis have decided, in absolute certainty, that…
..we can’t decide.
This was the closest poll to date, with 52% of you being in favour of a continued zombie invasion and 48% of you wanting less of the undead.
Perhaps the voting was swayed by comment from ‘the official spokesman for the Zombies Are Human League’, John Malcolm, who described zombies as peace loving individuals who are ‘likely to be visiting our local Zombie Drop-in Centre to discuss methods of re-attaching limbs and what’s the best way to get blood off your teeth.’
I shall leave you with the U.K. chart hit ‘Zombie’, not the Cranberries version but a cover by A.D.A.M. featuring Amy which reached No.16 in 1995. With a busty woman in a car wash and various zombie types cropping up in the video I’m guessing A.D.A.M. was unaware that the song was about the troubles in Northern Ireland at the time, in particular the killing of two children in an IRA bombing in Warrington.
Still – zombies licking each other in a car wash – phwoar, eh?
