Well, the Ladbrokes betting people have done it again, and are offering odds of 2000/1 of a festive zombie apocolypse!

That’s right,  if the dead start to rise at chrimbo, you can be sure of netting a big win, although if that’s the case you’d be hard pressed to even cash it in or spend it for that matter! It really makes you think of those out there that possibly will shell out a few quid on having a bet on this, and even so it’s meant to be a joke (like a previous years odds offered as part of a promo for dead island) there willbe some poor sap taking them up on the offer!

In reality, we are more likely to get invaded by aliens or WW3 (not WWZ), but with the trend of zombies popularised by The Walking Dead and other media, I imagine we’ll be seeing more and more crazy zombie related promotions and so forth.

They’ll be offering odds on clown sightings next!

The new trailer for the Dead Island sequel has been released, if you do the odd bit of console gaming, you might remember the first Dead island, and it was Ok for a zombie game, with loads of weapon combos to pagga them with, and who can forget the song from the intro “Voodoo bitch”! (They don’t make them like they used to!) But it is a good game, not my fave, I am a big Left 4 dead fan, and it’s unfortunate that my Xbox 360 is bust, so I can’t play it (or left 4 dead 2 either) so Dead Island is my only zombie game at present (PS3)!

The word is, in this one you get to do a fair bit of island hopping, as well as zombies on boats, new mutations and the original characters from the first (Plus a new fifth one with new skills from the others) There are hints of a new game after this called “Dead World” which sounds promising! Its coming out on Xbox360, PS3 and PC formats. The release dates seem to be sketchy for each format and part of the world, but they are taking pre-orders, so it can’t be long (2013 supposedly) If anyone can tell us any exact release dates, please comment and let us know.

Gotta admit, I like the trailer, but then I do luurve them zommers!!
