👀 Plant Fungus Infected a Human in First Reported Case of Its Kind -

Why so many zombie movies over the last few years? I think John Vervaeke is correct that they represent meaninglessness, which says something about how we've been feeling lately.

I just realized that #LLMs are polite #zombies that came to eat our brains to acquire our skills!
#LLM "#AI" aka #SALAMI

Excerpt of the linked pdf titled "The Night Watch" by James Mickens.
He writes about, without using the word, wokeness required when being born in the south and knowing that true progress is a fantasy and needing to be prepared for the end times.
Highlighted is the line "and the polite zombies who say "sir" and "ma'am" but then try eating your brain to acquire your skills."

Went in not really knowing what to expect out of this one, but was pleasantly surprised. I was especially worried that given the release date, there'd be a lot of way-past-expiration War on Terror/Iraq War allegorizing going on here, but instead I feel like Romero was a little ahead of the curve.

Mind-Control —

When the parasite Toxoplasma Gondii infects a mouse it makes the mouse less fearful & more exploratory

This makes it more likely that the mouse will end up eaten by a cat and in the cat's belly, where the parasite can sexually reproduce

The mouse's behaviour is an adaptation — not for the mouse but for the parasite

Game: Dead Rising 2

Platform: Steam
Release Date: Sep 30, 2010
Library Date: Nov 4, 2017
Unplayed: 2038d (5y7m)
Playtime: 74m

After yesterday's Dead Rising review, @Averagegoob responded to me suggesting that Dead Rising 2 was better than Dead Rising.

He wasn't wrong.

It definitely improves on some of the weaknesses of Dead Rising. The new protagonist, Chuck Greene, feels like he moves faster than Frank West in Dead Rising.

The stakes feel higher here. Frank has a daughter he needs to keep safe, as well as [spoilers] that give him (and thus the player) an impetus to keep fighting.

Combat feels cleaner, and a little more fun as well. A nice addition is the ability to create combination weapons, which make things a little more gory, with a side of black humour.

On the downside, you still have to find a toilet to save the game, which is a little annoying, but overall, it's a step up from Dead Rising.

Dead Rising 2 is:

Game: Dead Rising

Platform: Steam
Release Date: Aug 8, 2006
Library Date: Jan 20, 2023
Unplayed: 134d (4m14d)
Playtime: 49m

Dead Rising is the first in the series of Dead Rising third person action-adventure zombie games.

I bought it, after starting this project, because of one of the rules I set for myself that I wouldn't play a sequel to a game unless I'd played the predecessors.

Since I already owned Dead Rising 4 from a bundle (still unplayed), I decided I had to start at the beginning with Dead Rising, & bought it on special.

This rule was a mistake, as was buying this game. Changed the rule to add "if I own them".

It's not a bad game, per se. It's just that it was released almost 17 years ago, and is competing with zombie games like Dead Island and Dying Light.

It's got quite a lot of character in the main protagonist, Frank West, a photo journalist trapped in a mall full of zombies. However, his loping run feels frustratingly slow, and the zombies seem to be either ignoring you, or swarming you with little warning.

I got quite frustrated, but was slowly making progress, and then I died. Games in 2006 weren't really big on autosaving, something you don't miss until it's not there.

After more than 40 mins playtime, I found myself at the start of the game again, and quit.

Dead Rising has fallen to:

My son is over and we're playing a bunch of games. My current favorite (and also one of his) is the INCREDIBLE roguelike Death Road to Canada. And like it sounds, you're fighting pixelated digital zombies in the apocalypse, trying to make your way to the safety of Canada. This game is SO fun and replayable (but beatable, we've beaten it three times since he's been here) and I suspect it would make an EXCELLENT party game. Up to four players can jump in and out. Every game is random and you don't win every time, but it's so wild and really hilarious too. I won this game in a giveaway and was pretty psyched but had no idea it was such a great game. Just a blast. You can even make your own characters too (and you'll meet some familiar ones), as you grab buffs, upgrades, and all KINDS of weapons. There's some really cool decision making involved along the way, along with skill you learn and luck you hope to have. Onward to Canada!

Game: Dead Island Definitive Edition

Platform: Steam PC
Release Date: May 31, 2016
Library Date: Dec 4, 2018
Unplayed: 1595d (4y4m13d)
Playtime: 20m

Dead Island is another first-person zombie killing game, but this time it's set on a resort island.

It's a pretty run-of-the-mill "kill zombies, collect stuff, make stuff, kill more zombies" gameplay loop. Being set on a tropical island seems (so far) to give it a slightly different feel to other zombie games.

But it also felt kind-of familiar, not just like other zombie killing games, but like I'd played it before.

When I logged out, and looked up who'd made it, that feeling made sense; Dead Island is made by Techland, the same studio who make the Dying Light franchise.

Techland know how to make zombie games, but with the familiarity of the gameplay loop, if I was in the mood for killing zombies, I'd probably choose Dying Light 2 over this, as a more recent game with gameplay improvements.

Dead Island Definitive Edition is:

This show #TheLastOfUs is quite amazing. It’s using the collapse of society and #zombies as a vehicle for showing the depths that all kinds of #love can take. It’s amazing, it’s moving, and at times it’s devastatingly gut wrenching.

Okay, so after watching #TheLastOfUS on #HBO, I wondered if #SciFi #zombies (basically a virus, bacteria, etcetera, cause craziness & not a living dead scenario) could occur in humans.

According to
#science, the answer is yes. At the 10:15 mark of this video mentions a parasitic protozoan that replaces mammels fear of #cats with a love for cats (or at least their scent.

I guess this explains why
#Caterday is so popular online (regardless of the social platform used).

Although it usually infects mice
🐁, this parasite can affect humans as well, as it wants us to be eaten by cats (even big cats like lions). From #ScienceFiction to science fact. Crazy if you ask me!

This is quite possibly one of the oldest unplayed games in my Steam library. At some stage in early 2019 I opened it, but never played it.

Given the kind of game, I'm not surprised that past me took one look and went "no, thank you".

It's most of the things I dislike in a game. It's a retro/8-bit sideways-scrolling-zombie-shooter.

I'm not really a fan of sideways scrollers. Zombie games are a bit take-it-or-leave-it.

8-bit "retro" games, though? As I've said before, I was there the first time around, and I have few warm memories.

Shoot zombies, collect coins, buy upgrades, rinse & repeat. I got somewhere into the third level and just got sick of it.

For me, Dead Pixels was:
