Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare review

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare transplants the popular characters and weapons from the casual franchise into a first-person shooter.

Pros

Hectic multiplayer action: Surprisingly, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare holds its own as an entertaining shooter. Up to 24 players can engage in battle. Matches are competitive yet comical, thanks to the colorful, cartoony nature of the game.

Class diversity: In Team Fortress style, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare offers basic disciplines to fit the most common styles of team-based shooters. The flower team has the standard peashooter class and healing class, while the zombies have units like engineers with … Read more

Zombie GO Launcher Theme review

With its humorously gruesome wallpaper and somewhat disturbing icons, Zombie GO Launcher Theme brings guaranteed satisfaction to lovers of the macabre. Apart from its positively ghastly looks, this well-made theme also offers good performance, being able to handle even the more resource-intensive features of the GO Launcher EX quickly and with grace.

After a fast and straightforward installation, Zombie GO Launcher Theme scares you a bit with its background, a zombie kid with pitiful teeth, part of his right brain lobe visible, and a pair of scissors stuck in his head. The icons go well with the wallpaper, featuring a … Read more

Star Apps: Josh McDermitt of 'The Walking Dead'

The record-breaking "Walking Dead" Season 4 finale did not disappoint -- unless you happened to be one of the hapless human survivors trapped in the train car of death. A few days later, I chatted with actor Josh McDermitt, who plays mulleted scientist Dr. Eugene Porter, about the hit AMC series, the finale, transitioning from sitcoms to "The Walking Dead," why zombies continue to dominate in pop culture, which app would help him survive a zombie apocalypse, and his favorite mobile software.

What are your thoughts on "The Walking Dead" season finale? I thought … Read more

'Walking Dead,' legless teen pull off zombie prank

One of the most memorable zombies to ever scare the bejeezus out of audiences on "The Walking Dead" showed up in the very first episode of the series. The decomposing, legless female zombie pulled herself over the ground and forever crawled into the popular zombie imagination.

High school student Nick Santonastasso has just entered the pantheon of great zombies with an assist from cast and crew members of the "The Walking Dead."

Santonastasso was born with one arm and no legs as a result of the rare genetic disorder Hanhart syndrome. He is also a massive fan of "The Walking Dead."

Review: Zombie Yourself is a cute novelty, but is difficult to use

Zombie Yourself has some worthwhile creepy fun, but it will reject almost all of the pictures you try to use with it. If your picture isn't absolutely perfect, the app won't even try to turn it into a zombie. That, combined with the abundant ads, makes this sticker app tough to like.

This app lets you take a picture or use a picture already on your camera and cover it in wounds that make you look like a zombie. Unlike other zombie-making apps, you can't choose the marks; the app picks them for you and only lets … Read more

The tools included are effective and the zombie faces are of decently high quality, so you can create some pretty mean and scary looking faces that can then be shared via e-mail, Twitter, or Facebook with your friends and followers.

After installation, you can open the app and choose a photo or take a new one using your camera. After selecting a photo you'll be asked to pinpoint the eyes and mouth on the photo before moving … Read more
