HorsePLAY! EP10 – The Zombie Episode PREVIEW

HorsePLAY! is coming back after a one-week hiatus.  Well, maybe we can’t call it a hiatus as it wasn’t like we went on sabbatical or just got lazy.  Obi was under the weather and we’ve been getting hit by power outages here in Georgia so I could not make it.  Heck, we had another blackout last night so hopefully things will settle down in time for our first double-digit episode!

For HorsePLAY! EP 10, we’ll be joined by some of the folks over at Zombie Cast and, if we can nail him down (see what I did there?), Tony Rey of We’re Alive (and other fame).  Eli Sodoom from Knuckleballer Radio may also join us if he can stay awake.  This will be a special episode where we’ll discuss all things zombies but I am sure we will touch upon the infected and undead monsters that purists would never call a z-word.  This will likely be a two-part upload to make up for our week off, too!

Here is a little taste of what we’ll likely discuss…

The Walking Dead Episodes 9 & 10

If you ask me, there was quite a huge contrast between Episode 9 and 10 of the Walking Dead Season 4, particularly with the pacing.  We’ll talk about the wow moments, disappointments, and more predictions.  It’ll be fun to see the different perspectives, especially since Obi has not caught up on the show yet.  Beware – there will be spoilers!

Be sure to tweet us with any topics you’d like us to touch upon.  We’re @Yogizilla and @ObioneX2, guys.  I think we may even go back into previous seasons with some recaps and foreshadowing.  Have you noticed any clues or omens on TWD?  Do share!

Evil Dead - The BOOMSTICK!

Is Evil Dead A Zombie Movie?

With a title like Evil Dead, one would think the franchise is about zombies but that’s a debate that could go either way.  Certainly, there are undead creatures but are these zombies?  This discussion will almost certainly lead to our definitions of what zombies are, as well as distinctions between infected, behemoths, and the non-shambling runners.

Bring your boomstick and prepare to defend your fanboy position.  Regardless of whether you feel Evil Dead is a zombie flick or not, it is one of the best horror flicks ever made.  Campy humor, Bruce Campbell, and gore..  Classic horror right there!

Survive Day-Z

Game Developers LOVE Zombies

Dead Pixels and Day-Z are two examples of video games that embrace zombies.  Video games seem to be chock-full of them, whether they’re the focus of the title or a small part.  Plants Vs. Zombies, SolForge, Guardian Heroes, Left 4 Dead, Dead Island, Borderlands..   Zombies are invading all video games, big and small!

Is it me or do indie developers seem particularly drawn to zombies?  When will ninjas and vampires make a comeback?  Pirates have already started to but zombies seem to be the dominating force…

Anyway, Dead Pixels.  Super fun game that is reminiscent of River City Ransom.  It has co-op and tons of upgrades.  Give it a try and let us know what your longest run was like.

HorsePLAY! LIVE airs every Thursday at 11pm over at the ObioneX2 Twitch Channel (simulcasted on my Yogizilla-branded Twitch channel as well).  Come join us!

Knuckleballer Radio: Soap Taste – Yummy!

Knuckleballer Radio
Episode “Soap Taste – Yummy!”

[audio http://recordings.talkshoe.com/TC-123936/TS-820666.mp3|titles=Knuckeballer Radio:  Soap Taste – Yummy!|loop=yes|animation=no|initialvolume=80]

I’ve been joining friends on different shows, particularly ones on the AllGames Network, and Knuckleballer by far is the craziest experience.  You just never know what to expect.  This episode was no exception.

Norma (Normii477) had an evil plan and I had no idea.  She got the families of Shawn (Freemandaddy5) and Eli (Sodoom) to blind-fold them and put put random things in their mouths.  At one point, Shawn ate soap (too bad it wasn’t bacon soap) and started crying.  LOL..  It was pretty epic!

If you’ve never heard Knuckleballer Radio before, the basic format is that there are three main hosts and rotating guest hosts.  Each participant has to share a knuckeball, which is a random topic or challenge that everyone else has to participate in.  Since no one knows what these knuckleballs will be, the antics that ensue are always quite entertaining.

I love the raw, mostly unscripted approach of this show.  It makes for great radio.  What’s even better is that the hosts are such authentic, awesome individuals.  Be sure to give them a listen and show my friends some social media love!
