Evil Dead: Endless Nightmare

You know i have a zombie addiction… Man this game is so cool, although i must admit i’m still getting used to the control settings, i panic when i see a zombie in the periphery and then i end up getting killed by one that pops out in front of me:

I lasted 16 seconds :(

The game is free in the app store. Basically you just run and kill zombies and see how long you can survive with the weapons you have.

Initially your only weapon is your fists, but as you collect blood droplets you can unlock weapons with a bit more kick.

I got a nail gun :D

Who left a barbed wire trench in the middle of the forest? Seriously i keep gravitating towards it, get stuck on it, and it throws off my whole survivalist strategy (yes i’m making excuses for doing so poorly).

What’s your most meters covered/how long have you survived?

Fandom Diorama Scene Creations

Ok, lets all just admit that we play with our toys (action figures, plushies) you name it, yes i’m not referring to the special ones that are still in the box…

Some of our fandom-following friends have gone to town on instagram (follow @fandelafandeli), taking the trouble to capture an action scene unfolding in a perfect second:

I could probably pull off something similar with micro-machines, or with Pokemon plushies. Most of my action figures are back in South Africa so i’m pretty limited for the time being.

Is there anyone in Sydney reading this who has some merch? Maybe we could pool resources to pull off our own fandom action sequence of shots? Let me know 😎

Pokemon Go

Yes i know I’m late to be blogging about this (sorry), but as a Pokemon Master it’s still my duty…

Is this a joke?

Is this a joke?

I joined the game late, well maybe like 3 weeks after it launched? I’m currently level 23, just short of 24, but i haven’t been playing for quite some time (mostly because I still don’t have Charizard so I’m pouting about it)…

Near my work - abundance!

It’s strange how before the game came out, i’d always think to myself, ”yea, those would be my six Pokemon, they’re my fave, they’re so cool…” but when you actually play the game, your top six are totally not of your choosing (unless you’re willing to work hard, or should i say walk far), but otherwise if you’re just average into the game, your top six will mostly be determined by luck (hatching eggs, being in the right location at the right time).

When the game first launched, we went to the Sydney Opera House on the one Saturday, and literally everyone was consumed by the game – it’s one of those iconic moments, when people are no longer flocking for a selfie at a landmark, but rather to catch something rare…

I did try several times to take the Opera House gym, but its literally impossible, so many people are challenging it, it ends up actually like glitching and kicking you out – too much traffic. I have taken over other less crowded gym locations temporarily.

Is anyone else playing/was playing? I chose the yellow team because i liked the whole instinct/intuition story behind it, then later i learnt my friends all chose blue just because it’s their favourite colour, how annoying.

Tentacle Wars

I’ve been playing this game on my phone, it’s creepy but i’m totally loving it! Tentacle Wars takes place inside the body of an alien creature:

Basically you are the anti-bodies fighting a war against an infection/ disease within this alien creature (represented by the green and red microbes respectively):

It is a strategy game. You have to over-power the disease by ‘capturing’ those cells through extending a certain number of tentacles. However, sometimes enemy cells are more powerful than you, and you first have to accumulate neutral (grey) cells to aid your cause:

Sometimes you cannot attack enemy cells outright, because you will be blocked by other neutral cells which you cannot overpower. You have to plan how best to use your cell energy to capture the enemy (some ways are more efficient than others):

There are numerous zones within each level of the game, and as you guessed it – it gets progressively more difficult as you advance.

Facehugger versus Headcrab

The Facehugger (from Alien) and the Headcrab (from Half-Life) are very similar in that they want to couple with your head/face area, but they do so for different reasons:

Facehugger

Facehugger

The Facehugger locks around your mouth for the alien implantation process. The Facehugger inserts a tube-like proboscis into the mouth and down the throat of the host, supplying the host with oxygen while implanting an embryo (which will exit you as a Chestburster).

Headcrab

Headcrab

The Headcrab couples with its hosts head in an attempt to control the host’s nervous system. Upon sighting a humanoid host, a headcrab will leap for the victim’s face and affix itself to the cranium, whereupon they will use their beak to break into the victim’s skull. The Headcrab then proceeds to take over its host’s motor functions through some unknown biological process. The host will then undergo physical changes, presumably induced through chemical means – the host basically becomes a zombie.

Would you rather contend with a Facehugger or a Headcrab? I choose Headcrab since they can be domesticated.
