Zombie Apocalypse!

Well, now, y’all know about my MMORPG of choice, right? City of Heroes/City of Villains is all about playing as a superhero (or a supervillain) using your powers to fight evil (or to rob banks) and styling around town in your spiffiest spandex outfit.

Well, a few weeks before October 31, they start up the annual Halloween Event. Most years, it’s involved some giant pumpkin-headed monsters roaming the city and a chance to go “trick or treating” — click on some doors, and you’ll either get a treat (an in-game reward of some kind) or a trick (an attack by vampires, werewolves, or other monsters).

This year, they’ve added something new. At random times in each city zone, the sky will suddenly turn an ugly reddish-black color, a short snippet of spooky music will play…

…and the zombies come out.

And not just one or two — hordes of the rotting flesh-eaters…





Whoooo! Whattarush! Halloween really is the best time of the year, ain’t it?

(P.S.: Ya know what Lubbock needs? A good ol’ fashioned zombie walk.)

    Awesome. 🙂 I can only imagine the amounts of Yuck streaming all over the place from the typical Cryptic-type zombie puke attack.

    Looks like fun. Give my regards to everyone.

    Well, there’s a certain degree of zombie pukeage going on, but I don’t think there’s quite as much as you’d get with the various Vazhilok zombies.

    And I’ll tell the gang you said howdy. 🙂

    Yeah, seriously, those Vazhilok zombies were eating too many street vendors.
