ExpositoryNow, first things first; hopefully youve seen several zombie movies in your time, so you may have at least a few ideas of what you can expect. Yes, the dead will rise, and yes, they will attack the living but, if you are prepared, youll have no need to fear. If youve seen Dawn of the Dead (the remake) or 28 Days later then you may believe that zombies can run. Dont worry, zombies cant run. Technically, the 28 Days Zombies arent even real zombies, but thats a different kettle of fish.
ExpositoryWhy cant zombies run? Its obvious, really - theyre dead. Its amazing enough they can walk. We all know its pretty hard to run when youre tired; without any blood flowing through you at all, I think walking is the best you can hope for.
ExpositoryAlso, zombies cant think. How do they do what they do? Simple - instinct. With our minds running on full, we have the good grace to not bite each other. Zombies arent so lucky. Because they cant think, out-smarting a zombie should be childs play, even for a certified idiot like yourself. A zombie will walk straight towards you, slowly, typically with out stretched arms so all you need to do is keep several paces ahead, and dont walk down any dead-end allies. I imagine youre now wondering why you were ever worried at all; killing a zombie would be as easy as killing a goldfish, only not as satisfying. Well thats true, but zombies, like teenage girls and Vikings, travel in hordes.
ExpositoryIf there is one zombie, then soon there will be 10, and within an hour maybe a hundred, before you know it, your whole city is infected! Yes, if a zombie bites you, you will die, because you will be infected. That part of the Hollywood zombie myth is true. So more than likely, when you discover the zombie invasion for yourself, many of your friends, and a great many fellow students will be among the living dead. You cant hold back on a zombie, even if its a grandmother zombie, or a little child zombie, or a seriously attractive zombie. You need to be prepared to take the head off your friends if they are going for your brains! You must know how to kill a zombie - that part is in most of the movies - just hack through a zombies brain with a machete. What you may need to know is exactly what to do when youre stuck in a house with the zombie mob outside

Los Angeles is like the fall of Rome, but instead of lead pipes, its bureaucracy. Three and a half years ago, I caught wind that there was a skatepark proposed two blocks away from my apartment in Highland Park. Immediately, visions of Dreamland and Grindline danced in my head like dual butconcrete snakeruns. But Los Angeles County is not Washington, Oregon, or Idaho; it isnt even like the rest of California. It believes its its own country

Every new Sonic release carries a hope that Sega's blue hedgehog will be able to regain the form that made him a star in the early '90s. And most every venture into the third dimension has resulted in various degrees of failure. Sonic Unleashed was supposed to provide the unrelenting speed fans have been clamoring for, and it does finally offer a healthy dose of turbo-charged levels to burn through. Unfortunately, even with Sonic's trademark speed finally on full display, Unleashed lacks one very important element: fun.

ExpositoryEven if you've played a lot of Skate, there are definitely enough new features and improvements in Skate 2 to make it worth a look. The presentation is slick, the controls are great, and at times you really do feel like you're skateboarding.
