Darryl & Merle are the stars of The Walking Dead video game Survival Instinct

This first-person action game allows players to assume the role of the crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon, alongside his brother Merle, on a haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct takes the undead and brings them out of the TV show and into console gaming systems in a terrifying way. The iconic walkers will relentlessly hunt down players like their television counterparts, using a combination of sight, sound and smell. As Daryl, players will need to tread carefully throughout each new area they explore. Once discovered, it doesn't take much to attract an unstoppable horde of undead walkers, so every threat needs to be assessed, and every situation analyzed. Players will have to choose between whether to stay and fight while risking a gruesome death or using stealth to avoid the undead. No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.

Cops: Man shoots girlfriend over 'Walking Dead' argument


Here is one from the WTF file. After an argument about what could cause a zombie apocalypse a man shot his girlfriend when she came to apologize the next day. I am not making this sh** up.

[ SOURCE ] A Williston Park man who shot his girlfriend in the back with a rifle after a heated argument over the television show "The Walking Dead" told police he was annoyed that she came to his apartment to smooth things over.

In a statement to police, Jared M. Gurman, 26, said he told his girlfriend, Jessica Gelderman, 27, also of Williston Park, to leave.

"Jess walked into the room and I fired the gun once and hit her," Gurman said. "She said, 'Oh my God. What did you do?'"

A single round from a .22-caliber semi-automatic rifle pierced Gelderman's lung and diaphragm and shattered her ribs, said Nassau Det. Lt. Raymond Cote, commander of the Third Squad.

Police said Gurman drove his girlfriend to Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, where he was arrested. As of late yesterday, police said Gelderman was in stable condition with the bullet still in her body.

At Gurman's arraignment yesterday in First District Court in Hempstead, his attorney, Edward L. Lieberman of Garden City, entered a not guilty plea on behalf of his client, but outside court he acknowledged that Gurman unintentionally shot his girlfriend.

"The rifle went off accidentally," Lieberman said.

Gurman, of 516 Marcellus Rd., was arraigned on one count of second-degree attempted murder. Nassau District Court Judge Valerie Alexander ordered him jailed without bail.

Gurman and Gelderman, who had been dating for three and half years, went out Sunday night when they began arguing about the show, an AMC thriller featuring zombies in a post-apocalyptic world, Cote said.

"I just know that he felt very adamant that there could be some type of military mishap that would result in some sort of virus or something being released that could cause terrible things to happen," Cote said.

Gelderman, Cote said, thought her boyfriend's belief was absurd.

"She felt that it was ridiculous," Cote said.

The argument escalated, police said, and Gelderman decided not to spend the night at Gurman's apartment and instead went to her parents' home.

Later, the two continued arguing by exchanging text messages, Cote said.

Gelderman became concerned because Gurman had gotten so agitated, police said, and went to his apartment in an attempt to calm him down.

When Gelderman showed up, Gurman said he was sitting on the stairs holding his rifle.

"She tried to defuse the situation and calm him down and told him, 'Let's just go to bed,'" Cote said.

Gurman pointed the rifle and fired one round into the middle of Gelderman's back as she walked up the stairs, said police.

The Man In The Hat. A New Dead War Series Short Story

Hi all. I know you are waiting for The Dead War Book 3: War and I promise it's coming. Until then two short stories will be released. The first is The Man In The Hat a short story based on a piece of flash fiction titled BELOVED that I wrote last month. You may remember it:

BELOVED

Grover looked on as the naked female zombie gnawed on the leg bone of her latest victim. Blood covered her entire body. Well what was left of it any way. Her abdomen had been ripped out and her entrails lay on the floor before her. One of her eyes had been torn out and her lips had been chewed off.

Grover sat quietly in the corner as the zombie soon realized that there was no more to eat. She looked over at Grover. She shrieked and lunged at him.

The chain around her neck yanked her back to the floor. Grover had long ago chained her there. She reached out towards him moaning softly.

Grover smiled. “ Still hungry beloved?”

The zombie moaned loudly and began yanking on the chain.

Grover stood up and put on the poor boy style hat he had been holding in his hands.“ I’ll go get you something else to eat.”

The zombie calmed down and sat as if it were a dog.

Grover looked at her lovingly. “ Till death do us part.”

He turned from her as tears rolled down her face. He started toward the door to getmore “food” for his beloved. THE END

So now I would like to introduce a new Dead War Series Short Story based on BELOVED, The man in the hat. The living dead are not the only monsters out there. 99 cents.
