We kick things off with a brand new segment titled The Resident Evil Village Corner (we welcome new naming conventions). Then we move into the zombie news where Resident Evil Re:Verse has been delayed to Summer, Naughty Dog has an outline for The Last of Us Part 3, and Back 4 Blood details its card system. For our topic, we go over Blood Quantum, then end the episode with a listener email.
Ryan and Lou return to close the book on Season 10 of The Walking Dead, and can’t help but jump right into Fear The Walking Dead to chat about the moments leading up to the conclusion of the premiere. But before we dig into the latest from AMC, we go over the news! Plenty of Days Gone popping up in our video game feeds, including the release date of the PC version, Days Gone 2 is not happening at Bend (but a Last of Us Remake is), and the lead writer and creative director has some thoughts on buying a game at launch. In other news, Tommy has been cast in HBO’s The Last of Us series, Army of the Dead has a new fantastic trailer, and everything announced on the latest Resident Evil showcase.
Celebrating ZAMP 250 the only way we know how, with zombie news, The Walking Dead, and ZOMEMORIES! In the news we chat about Back 4 Blood being delayed from Summer to October 12th, the Resident Evil movie reboot has also been delayed to November, and AMC confirms the premiere date for the final season of The Walking Dead. Speaking of that, The Walking Dead returned with an extended Season 10, so our topic this week is the first three episodes of 10C. Finally, we close out the show with our own ZOMEMORIES and a few from our listeners. Thank you to everyone who has supported the show over the years, we really appreciate it!
The time has finally come, Stubbs the Zombie has been re-released and we’re ready to cover it on the show! Lou, a returning Stubbs fan, guides Ryan through the wonderful world of Rebel Without A Pulse. But before we bite into this 2005 cult classic, we have zombie news to catch up on. There’s a new zombie survival game coming to Steam Early Access in 2021 called Dead Matter, we have a release date for the Resident Evil movie reboot, Netflix confirms RE2 Remake voice actors will return for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, and the devs behind Dying Light 2 commit to more updates and a release window.
We return to complete our Extra Life fun with a movie discussion of Planet Terror! But before we get to the finger licking good clips, we catch up on the last month in zombie news. HBO casts it’s main leads for The Last of Us series, Stubbs the Zombie is BACK in a few weeks, Train to Busan is getting a US adaptation, and Netflix drops a release date and teaser trailer for Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead.
After what we believe to be FOUR LONG YEARS (we could be wrong and Absolute Zombie has just scarred us so), we’re back with a new audio commentary! We sit down and welcome you to watch Planet Terror with us. Please let us know if you end up enjoying this audio commentary, as we had a great time putting it together and would like to do more in the near future. Well, nearer than four years, we promise!
We conclude our viewing of the Return of the Living Dead franchise with Necropolis… But before that fun, we go over the zombie news! Fear The Walking Dead is scheduled to return on April 11th, and The Walking Dead’s Season 10C will get an early run on AMC+ by about a week. We may have been given a hint at when we can expect Army of the Dead to premiere on Netflix. Finally, sad news from the voice actor community, Jeanette Maus, a voice actor from Resident Evil Village has passed away at the age of 39.
Are you ready to Rave to the Grave? Because we are! But before that, we welcome our special guest Brent, who donated to our Extra Life campaign to suggest three films and join us on the show. We all break down a pretty zombie news heavy few weeks, kicking things off with everything announced at the RE Showcase, The Last of Us HBO series has a new director, SyFy’s Day of the Dead series will connect to the original classic, and AMC has a whole year of The Walking Dead scheduled (plus a TWD S10C trailer). Brent has a zombie board game to recommend with Zombicide: Night of the Living Dead. We close out the show with a discussion centred around Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave. Tuck in folks, this is our biggest episode in some time!
ZAMP has returned for 2021, and after we catch up on the zombie news, we welcome back a much requested feature to the podcast: CLIPS! Our first Extra Life donor sponsored film discussion is #Alive on Netflix. In the news, we discussed Day of the Dead actor Gary Klar passing away and the Resident Evil movie reboot getting a release date.
The Game Awards announce several unofficial sequels but not actually sequels including Back 4 Blood which is not a sequel to Left 4 Dead….. No really, not a sequel…. Also more Evil Dead with Evil Dead: The Game! Deep Silver swears Dead Island 2 is not cancelled. Maybe Madison is returning to Fear, or not, Gimple is playing Gimple. Our main topic is the dreaded (Lou: painful) to watch The Walking Dead: World Beyond. Does it have any redeeming value or do teens just suck in the zombie apocalypse? We give you the run down and more (Gimple)!
