Zombie Week- House of the Dead: Overkill

Sci-fi/ Cyberpunk Videogames Zombies

The House of the Dead: Overkill (first-person rail shooter) published by Sega and made for the Wii.  I know I know it isn’t new, it came out the beginning of 2009, but I didn’t have a blog then plus it’s zombie week so anything undead goes.  I like this game it because it presents itself like a over-the-top Grindhouse flick and because it has a Guinness World Record for the most profane video game in history (189 F-bombs to be exact).  I think if they ever made this a movie Samuel L. Jackson just has to play the character Detective Isaac Washington.

Game Informer ranked the dirty mouth cop Isaac Washington among the “Top 10 Heroes of 2009,” saying this about him:

“Foul-mouthed, uncompromising, hard-drinking, and unceasingly funny, Isaac Washington keeps everything grounded when the world is going crazy all around him. With tongue set firmly in cheek, Washington is a stereotypical career cop who can’t finish a sentence without a few expletives thrown in for color. He keeps the action going, and never fails to say what the player is thinking when the zombie outbreak gets out of hand.”
