The Undead Invade New Austin

by G. Christopher Williams

29 November 2010

Zombies are slow, and gunslingers are fast. Is that still formula enough for terror?

This week we seek to answer that age old question: is everything better with zombies?

Zombies have invaded Rockstar’s version of the Old West in Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare.  So, this week the Moving Pixels podcast crew consider the tweaked mechanics and otherworldly cast of this unexpected hybrid of genres.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
