Zombie Crawl 3
Hello and welcome Playgrounders! I am very honoured to be taking part in this years BOD Zombie Crawl! This is the 3rd year that this awesome event has been running but it’s the first time that I have taken a shot at hosting for a day, so I hope I do them proud.
I have an awesome giveaway going at the end of this post so please enter when you get there!
So we are big gamers in our bunker and the one gaming franchise that never fails to get us scared to open doors and go down dark tunnels is the Resident Evil Series (it is also my biggest guilty pleasure when it comes to films – I mean the final film has zombie dragons, it’s going to be epic). For us, the stand out resident evil game has to be number 4, purely for it’s volume of moments when we really didn’t want to go somewhere. I mean come on, would you want to go down a dark corridor in an abandoned medical facility where those snuflling and moaning noises were coming from? Although in some ways they were preferable to Ashley’s insufferable shouting of “Leon” every time she was rubbish at something, which was frequent.
Resident Evil 4 really has a bit of everything, our intrepid Leon starts in the villiage for some good old hack and slash fun, moving into the Church for some Tomb Raider worthy puzzling, to the lake for more boss battling and finally to the aforementioned medical facility. Dr. Salvador easily beats Resident Evil 3’s “Nemesis” as the most scary boss of all time in our book, the sound of a chainsaw was enough to send us into a run and hide frenzy.
We also have to tip that hat to Leon for managing to maintain perfect hair no matter what the game threw at him.
For our Halloween delectation this year we have just downloaded the re-masted version of the original Resident Evil for PS4, lets hope it’s all we remembered it to be! I know there may be die hard Silent Hill fans who may disagree, but in this bunker, Resident Evil rules the apocalyptic zombie roost. Did I mention the new film has Zombie Dragons, check out the trailer – you’re welcome 😉
To make sure you don’t miss out on any of the great giveaways, make sure you crawl to every stop!
