My Wishlist: Zombie Edition 4

Kind of a hodge podge today, including video games and books.

1) I Saw Zombies Eating Santa Claus: A Breathers Christmas Carol by S.G. Browne

Synopsis from Amazon: He sees you when you’re sleeping . . . he knows when you’re undead.
How does the leader of a failed zombie civil rights movement from California rescue a group of his undead brethren and help a lonely Breather girl as he hides from a band of medical researchers while disguised as Santa Claus?
If you’ve never believed in Christmas miracles, then you wouldn’t understand.
Andy Warner has just escaped from a zombie research facility in Portland, Oregon, where he’s been subjected to experimental testing for the past year. With Christmas just days away, Andy figures that donning a jolly old St. Nick costume to throw off his would-be captors is just the ticket. But he never expects to encounter a sweet, lonesome nine-year-old girl who not only reminds Andy of the family he’s lost but who thinks he’s the real Santa. He also doesn’t count on being recognized as last year’s national quasi-celebrity by a clandestine group of decaying supporters who look to him for leadership. For the living and the undead, this unforgettable holiday tale will truly put on display just who is gnawing and who is nice. . . .

I had no idea Breathers was getting a sequel! Plus it's Christmas-y. The only other Christmas zombie book I know of is The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore. I will definitely be devouring this one. It comes out October 31.

2) ZomiU

A super gory zombie game for the new Wii? Shocking! Whenever I get the new system, I am so all over this game. I like that the new system will have more games appealing to adults than in years past.

3) Plants vs. Zombies 2

A new Plants vs. Zombies game is on the horizon! I love the original, which you can play on any platform imaginable, but I've already done it and the zen garden is just ok. It's set to come out next Spring and here is the accompanying message with the press release:

"Spring is crullest curlie ungood time, and plantz grow dull roots. So, we are meating you for brainz at yore house. No worry to skedule schedlue plan... we're freee anytime. We'll find you." 

If, like me, you can't wait for this new game, you can go their new store and buy the most adorable toys from PvZ or catch up by playing the game on Facebook, or the iPod and any other device.

4) Walking Dead Season 3

Season 3 is almost here!! This is one of my favorite of the comic book series and it's going to be fun seeing it unfold onscreen and seeing what changes are made. I am so excited for Michonne, the Governor, and the return of Merle Dixon. Check it out starting October 14 on AMC.
