Are there zombies in this game?


Recommended Posts

Although zombies were originally a symbol of rampant consumerism and modern capitalism, used to criticize these ideas (in Night of the Living Dead, they are a sort of "natural disaster" and the survivors fixate on a mall), they have become quite different. While some people prefer to use them as symbols of their bourgeois natures, they were originally meant as a criticism of this.

 

A zombie is a unique look at man: what separates zombies from men? Well, zombies are "dumb." But how so? Zombies must be intelligent, in order to successful; they defeat the combined forces of mankind. They don't even use tools to do it! They must be masters of strategy and military tactics! They are also the idealized soviet man: preoccupied not with his own selfish desires, but with the needs of the community. A zombie will gladly sacrifice its life for its brethren, and zombies in general are more than willing to do so.

 

Zombies serve an excellent thematic role and can be used to reinforce ideas on the nature of man. I definitely think Obsidian should consider adding them, if they haven't already.

There will be no zombies.

 

But it's been confirmed that there will be apes, kittens and crates, including all possible combinations of these three.

Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

This is of course the reason for the delay, there weren't enough zombies. After a lot of though the developers decided to replace all the capitalist factions with zombies, to make a statement on the consumerism that plagues America and how brainless it's population is. Of course all of the zombies will be fat. ;)

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*
