I know some of you people like zombied and the like. Well I don't dig this. But this game sounds like fun:
Quote:

The Good: Zombies; terrific sense of humor; superb speech, screams, and moans; great soundtrack; exciting gameplay.
The Bad: Painfully short; great soundtrack is underused; system requirements seem a little high; keyboard and mouse controls don't do the job.

I hope the "terrific sense of humor" part isn't just some empty hype.

and a bit from IGN:
Quote:
Fart, Throw Guts, and Be Merry.
The gameplay in Stubbs is pretty straightforward. Your mission is to kill everyone you see. To do so you have a range of special powers. You can fart and stun the enemy, throw explosive gut bombs, use your hand to control an enemy, and use your head as an explosive bowling ball. In addition, you can perform melee swipes, eat brains, and rip off the arms of your foes which can be subsequently used to beat them in the face. As grotesque and intriguing an arsenal as this sounds, you'll soon find some attacks to be far more effective than others.
(you get the powers as you progress through the game.)

From what I've read, it turned out to be a short and unsatisfying game.

damn, I quickly browsed topics in "general gaming" but didn't spot "stubbs", so thought this hadn't been posted. My bad.

short - yeah, but perhaps it's funny at least. Having finished Grim Fandango, I can't find a game that's satisfyingly funny.

Damn it, I need to find a copy of Grim Fandago; I never got to play it.

I was somewhat interested in Stubbs(two of the makers are ex-Bungie original members) but from most of the reviews I've read, it's not worth the trouble and dough. I might get it off BT or something though.

Me neither.

I played Stubbs the Zombie, though and I kinda liked it. Short, sure, but it was fun. And the soundtrack's great, it's on my Winamp playlist.

The game takes place in a retro-futuristic take on the 1950s, mixing social Puritanism with a city of the future, complete with hovering cars, robot assistants, and laser blasters.

Corpse gas.

Possibly the very best thing about dead things. Other than when they were hated. Then it falls to third. icon_drunk
