Developer/Publisher: Electronics Extreme
Following in the footsteps of DayZ and other zombie survival MMOs, the developers at Electronics Extreme are looking to infect your computer with their latest iteration, Infestation World. Like any good zombie movie, the only goal in their sand-box is survival in a world overrun by the undead leaving the player to ultimately decide their fate. Though, invoking another zombie movie trope, it is not the zombies you should be afraid of, it’s the players. Player killing is not only legal but it seems to be somewhat encouraged as a way to grab free loot. More often than not, I’d be greeted by a bullet instead of a friendly hello, resulting in the player looting my body once everything was said and done. The type of world Infestation World takes place in isn’t a friendly one.
This is how social interaction works in Infestation World.
The gameplay in Infestation World is slow and relies on a more methodogical approach to survive. Running out with guns blazing is the quickest way to attract the attention of a few dozen zombies or the sniper bullet of an opportunistic player looking to score some loot. It pays to approach each situation with careful analysis to properly judge your chances of survival. This is doubly so when approaching other players. Getting a drop on them is almost essential to surviving the encounter.
While slow, steady and deadly wins the race in the open world portion of the game, the multiplayer battle modes are more of a mixed bag. Coming in two varieties, a standard Team Deathmatch that rewards the last ones standing, or the Time Attack option that focuses on racking up a kill count; these modes rely more on quick decisions and a twitchy trigger finger to get the job done. Caution is still rewarded, but being overly so can make you a sitting duck on the battlefield. These are the gameplay types to focus on if you are looking for a more standard shooter.
With all that being said, the game is in an early beta and could use some tweaks. Throughout my short adventure in the world, I found a few problems. Along with the general clipping and framerate issues, there were a few problems where I couldn’t seem to find a solution. Namely, the backpack didn’t seem to correctly judge the weight of each item. Even if my backpack could carry 50 lbs of supplies, it would seem to cap out at about 5 lbs when I attempted to equip my character on the menu screen. Furthermore, the lack of stats on the weapons and armor made it hard to decide which would be more effective than the other. Lastly, and probably the worse, the melee combat needs an upgrade. While grossly underpowered, they are also underwhelming to use on a zombie. The lifeless undead turned into a simple meat piñata for punishment whenever in melee combat. They hardly react, they don’t counterattack; they just stand there until you beat the infection right out of them for five or more hits. The whole process is wholly unsatisfying.
“Oh no! He talked about the games faults. Get him!”
If the idea of entering the deadly world of a zombie apocalypse interest you, the closed beta for Infestation World starts March 28th and the open beta begins April 6th. Till then, I hope I see you before you see me.

Happy Pi/Pee Day, everyone.
There is this video that Billy was talking about, I don’t know why I even watched it as it was kind of terrible.
Month long Zombie Awareness Month is this coming May 2015! Also, Month-Long-Holiday Awareness Year starts this year and every year before and after.
We start talking about Star Trek and Star Wars all of a sudden, not sure why, which leads into Interstellar. This is the video Billy talks about where the author of the book The Prestige says Chris Nolan only has a couple of good movies:
Then we go into the different movies Nolan has made and how he is as a general filmmaker nowadays.
We finish out the Nolan discussion and then talk about Gotham a little bit. Gotham pretty much jumped the shark the first episode.
Then we go into where Gotham is actually supposed to be located. We talk about this map on comicvine, which may or may not be canon:
We also talk about Agent Carter, as well. And then we go into the Superman movies and how Superman 2 was cut in two different ways.
For some reason I saw Da Hip Hop Witch before any of the Superman movies (yet to see) or probably even the Rocky movies. We talk about Da Hip Hop Witch a little bit, too.
We talk about how crap movies like Da Hip Hop Witch is able to get on Netflix and inspect the process of actually getting on Netflix insofar as a Google Search can tell us.
Squackle: The Movie? I guess it would just be my YouTube channel…
Pi ya’ll! See you in National Poetry Month!
(Marmafluke is a dog and speaks perfect English with a British accent and walks on two legs. SLAGGY is Marmafluke’s best friend. CRED, FELMA, and DAFTKNEE are his others.)
(Marmafluke sings the theme song in a Shakespearean manner:)
Where are you?
We’ve got some tea and crumpets
For you now…
Where are you?
We’ve got some weed
To do now!
We’ve got some mysteries to solve,
Be ready, you big ass
and don’t fucking be bisexual.
(A bunch of sweaty people run in and start freak dancing)
TITLE CARD: The Case of the Spiral Notebook
SLAGGY (voice over)
Today, Marmafluke meets Sonny and Cher!
(Fade out. Fade in with Marmafluke and Slaggy drinking tea and eating crumpets.)
So I says to Looby, “Let’s make like a spider and BUG OUTTA HERE!”
(Slaggy starts laughing hysterically.)
(Marmafluke is sitting with his legs crossed and he takes a sip of tea, seemingly unamused)
Hmm… yes… humorous…
(Marmafluke looks to the right, not laughing at all)
(Audience laughs, and as they drown out, you can hear one of them scream something)
AUDIENCE MEMBER 426
Marmafluke has a massive dong!
Now, that is totally uncalled for!
He’s right, though, it’s almost touching the floor.
(Marmafluke throws his tea to the floor and dumps his tray of crumpets on Slaggy gathering up his dog dong, hiding it in his lap)
Well, it’s not my fault…!
(Marmafluke glares at the camera)
Can’t you go SOMEWHERE ELSE!?
(Scene cuts to DAFTKNEE and FELMA digging in the ground. They’re really dirty and sweaty. Their boobs are knocking around and its pretty hot, actually, both literally and figuratively.)
(CRED is sitting on a chair drinking some lemonade under an umbrella)
CRED! Why are WE doing all the work?
Cred, this isn’t very fair.
My ascot is on too tight. You know I can’t shovel out
large amount of dirt, because I’ll pass out.
(The real reason is that Cred is looking at Daftknee and Felma’s bodily features and measuring them mentally… he was way off, though)
(Cred writes something in his notebook, saying it quietly aloud, as well)
Felma — Double D…
(Fred closes his notebook)
(The scene cuts to a bathroom door, and there’s some grunting sounds in there)
(Slaggy is waiting next to the door, and looks at his wrist, as if there was a watch there, but there isn’t.)
Come on, Marmafluke!
You’ve been in there for at least half an hour!
Looby never would make me wait
outside when he does his business.
(Little did he know, Looby’s business was jacking off)
(There’s a zipping sound behind the door, and Marmafluke walks outside wearing pants and shoes. There’s a huge lump and a line trailing down his right pant leg.)
Well, now that certain piece of indecency has
been taken care of, shall we check on the other 3?
(cut to Cred, Daftknee, and Felma)
I’m too tired to dig anymore.
Just think of what Looby would say if
he knew you were giving up on him.
(the camera cuts to a tombstone that reads:)
Here Lies Looby,
Not one brand, but three killed him.
(the camera cuts again and Felma is dragging Looby’s dead body toward the hole)
I think it’s deep enough Deftknee.
(Felma lobs Looby into the grave and it lands on Daftknee)
(Daftknee falls down and Looby is on top of her. 3 types of lubricant drained/evacuated from Looby’s orifices. Some is draining out of his nose, too. It was a gruesome death for poor Looby)
(Daftknee is squealing like a pig under Looby)
(in the next spot, Cher is in front of Sonny’s grave)
Would you mind keeping it down in there?
Aren’t you — DO YOU BELIEVE — supposed to be
dead when you’re — IN LOVE!!? — in a grave??
Wow! It’s Sonny and Cher!
Sonny is dead.
That’s funny Cher, we all know that isn’t true.
I don’t know — DO YOU BELIEVE! – what you’re talking about.
(Cut to Slaggy and Marmafluke walking toward The History Machine)
I think I’ll drive, you had a little too much…
(Slaggy is smoking a joint)
I really have no idea what you’re talking about.
It was only 5 cups!
Right… shall we?
(Slaggy and Marmafluke drive over to the cemetery)
SUNNY IS — IN LOVE! — DEAD!!
Sunny is in love?
NO! He’s in the — AFTER LIFE!!
(Daftknee is somehow out of the grave and finished shoveling the dirt into the grave)
Ah, I see you’ve finished unceremoniously burying my brother.
Rest in piece, you piece of shit.
(Daftknee spits on his grave, but due to a sudden jet stream it lands on Sonny’s grave)
You — DO YOU BELIEVE! — BITCH!!!
(Cher and Daftknee get into a cat fight)
(Cred writes into his notebook)
CRED (mouthing quietly)
Daftknee — purple underwear…
(Daftknee and Cher stop fighting for a second)
WHAT the HELL!?
(Daftknee gets slapped hard, and she starts fighting with Cher again)
(Meanwhile, the spit on Sunny’s grave starts glowing)
My God! You didn’t spit on a dead man’s grave, did you!?
So what if I did!?
(Sonny pops out of the grave)
Hey guys! I’m alive!
Bloody hell! A ZOMBIE!!
(Everyone screams then runs away. Cred drops his notebook, and Marmafluke happens to trip over it. Marmafluke grabs the notebook and runs away again)
Where’d everybody go? Hey, wait!
(Stupid music plays as Sonny is chasing everyone around, and somehow they’re in a place with millions of doors and are going in one and coming out the other over and over. A few times, two of them come out of different doors, etc etc)
(Daftknee and Marmafluke find a closet)
Daftknee! Look what I found!
(Daftknee takes the book from Marmafluke and opens it)
This is Cred’s! I wonder what he was writing in here…
(The notebook stated the following:)
10 inch-wide ass
Allows anal sex
Can have threesome w/Slaggy
Gives good BJs
British accent (hot!)
Extremely large dong
(Daftknee and Marmafluke look at each other after reading it)
Oh my God! That PERV!
He didn’t even get any of this information right!
I am TOTALLY into anal sex.
(Daftknee looks weird at Marmafluke)
Well, I can’t help it if I’m the object of everyone’s desire…
(Daftknee eyes Marmafluke’s pants)(Scene cuts to the castle with a million doors)
(Daftknee bursts out of a closet with a shotgun)
Cred! YOU’RE DEAD!
(Cred stops chasing Felma trying to grab her ass just as she runs into another door. He looks over to Daftknee)
Oh, shit. She found the notebook.
(Cred jumps into the air and runs away with Daftknee chasing after him)(Sonny and Cher have been making out the whole time. Not by normal kissing, but Eskimo kissing. Their noses are practically falling off)
I love — IN LOVE! — you.
(Then they both get shot from stray fire from Daftknee’s shotgun)
(Cred jumps on top of them and then jumps away, running again)
I’m going to the — AFTER LIFE!! — light!
Me too, again…
Man, you wankers sure are annoying.
“well I’ll start off as I’m kind of a tomb boy… (raised by my dad)….”

We have a guest this week! It’s Daniel, the guy that went to the strawberry festival last week. We put him on the grill and insult his decision for going to the strawberry festival along with his weird two-headed friend, Lucy the Two-Headed Goosey.
Did you have a half naked wannabe Hulk running around during your visit to the theater during The Avengers? Did he look as bad as this guy who used industrial paint and had to take 20 baths in two days to try to get it off?
In honor of the Zombie Apocalypse, AMC is starting a new show called…
Zombie Apocalypse 2012:
Get off my computer, Jamie Oliver. You’re not a chemist. You’re just an asshole.
Silly Jaime Oliver, we shouldn’t be throwing away perfectly edible food. We should at least ship it off to Africa!
McDonalds used to be a value. Now they try to sell you everything in bulk so that there is the same perceived value as what was once known as the Dollar Menu.
Only 20 bucks!
Rihanna looks dumb. Please remove her from my music and movies.
Carly Rae Jepsen? Who stepped in what? Yet another terrible song for your listening pleasure:
The Sky Is The Limit must be gay code for anal sex. So is “funnel cake.”
#1 – Piss
#2 – Poo
#3 – Poop and Pee at the same time.
#4 – Poo, Pee, and a Yak (a barf). Mostly done by bulimics and people who don’t feel very good.
#5 – Opening up your intestine and chopping up parts and throwing it at police (Zombies gotta poop somehow)
The newer Dawn of the Dead introduced running zombies. Is it really that much weirder than the idea of zombies in the first place?
[Rec] was a “demonic infestation” sort of zombie thing rather than a virus or reanimated corpses due to magic/radiation. By the way, that was a spoiler.
Want to hire screamers with 13 dB yells or higher to make movies seem more scary than they are. Apply at the offices of William Castle.
The real #5 – Peeing inside someone. A whole #1, while penetrating them.
#6 – Same thing as #5 but taking a shit on them instead.
#7 – Forced ejaculation
#8 – Vegetables in orifices, coming out.
The #1 (pun intended) defense against Zombies is making a house out of sugary treats.
#9 – You don’t even need a can opener. You just peel it back and drop that shit in, then you turn it to medium heat and stir it.
#10 – Strawberry sauce/Period Juice on your Hot Dog.
#11 – “Painting the porta potty.” The paintbrush is your dick and the porta potty is a person’s ass.
X Squared – all of the above
Boy that was a great one, huh, guys? Who knows what’s going to happen next week!
This week we watched Chernobyl Diaries, a movie about a bunch of college kids going to Russia to dick around and take Instagrams of ruined buildings and put them in meaningless filters so that they can show off to their friends. They also bring their crazy knife-wielding soccer coach along for the lulz.
Chernobyl Diaries has an old zombie lady masturbating in a closet in an attic of one of the buildings. Gross!
This is the knife that the soccer coach had.
Why does Will Smith like making sequels to movies 10 years after the fact? It’s not like he was doing anything that important in the mean time between movies. If he’s going to make a shitty movie, he might as well make it while it is still relevant.
Ali 2 will be Will Smith walking around with Parkinson’s until he either cures it or dies from it, made in 2018.
Independence Day 2 or even 3? Welcome to URF again in 10 years!
Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith shitting on their White House and blowing up alien landmarks. How do you like that, mother fuckers!? Aliens getting shit on all the time!
Kind of sounds like Avatar…
On the flip side of things, Prometheus looks like it’ll be a good movie.
Street Fighter and The Legend of Chun-Li had it right — only have a story about one character, not 35 million characters at the same time. That’s about the only thing they did right, and the rest of it was so wrong it was right.
George Lucas would probably go back into the Star Wars movies and remove Ewan MacGregor’s beauty marks just so that it is consistent through all of the movies.
Kind of something like this:
And most of all, FUCK THE STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL!
Everything is going to be made from the blood of trees now.
The Middle East is just a big fucking desert, who cares what happens to the environment there. No one freakin lives there anyway. So let’s toss all of our unused plastic bags into it.
See you guys next week! :licky:
