    Ha! Haters may say something like, “Looks like zombies are gaming’s new ‘break glass in case of emergency’ gimmick,” but another chance to run around the world of Red Dead Redemption is OK with me. (I wasn’t too keen on the previous multi-player DLCs, if only because I’m not the biggest multi-player gamer. I find a solid single-player mode to be far… Read More

  • Go To College, Take A Zombie Class
