State of Decay is a 3rd person adventure game set in a post apocalyptic open world… with zombies. The goal of the game is not unlike this year’s indie gem Don’t Starve; build a base, collect supplies, and survive for as long as humanly possible. Perma-death heightens the tension as each and every zombie battle could quickly turn you into worm food. In terms of survival horror, State of Decay does something that other titles of the genre have been trying to accomplish for years, it manages to make the losses real, and the horror truly horrifying.
I promised myself I wouldn’t contribute to the doomsday mania that’s sweeping the nation. To be honest, I’m actually pretty surprised Hallmark didn’t try and make the apocalypse into a marketable holiday. In honor of our apparent impending doom, Gearbox created a fun Facebook app that randomly generates a confession using characters from the Borderlands universe. By using the application you’ll not only be able to spam your friend’s timelines with pictures of Tiny Tina and Claptrap, but you’ll also receive a golden key VIA e-mail on December 21st, should we all survive. Head on over to the official Gearbox Facebook page and have fun spinning the doomsday confession wheel thingy!
