Yesterday was the Street Fighter X Tekken launch party, at the Majestic Hall in downtown Los Angeles. We were fortunate enough to obtain VIP passes for this closed-door event, and didn’t have to wait in the gigantic line that wrapped around the building. It was a blast! Open bar (for the VIPs), free energy drinks, and booth babes- what more could a gamer ask for? We had the chance to mingle with some of Capcom’s higher ups, as well as witness a lot of crazy combos and beat downs by expert gamers! All in all, it was a great way to spend a Thursday night. Even Asura made a cameo appearance and was quite a hit with the ladies…

In our sole discretion, and due to the upcoming debut of Part 2 Season 2 of “The Walking Dead” on AMC, we have declared February the Zombie Awareness Month. Normally for events like this the respected authorities would ask you to run some preparedness drills, or check your emergency water supply, or something else remotely responsible; But that’s not us. Really, when the Zombies come, they will do all the work for us, washing over the throngs of humanity like a cleansing baby-wipe of divine forgiveness with their gnashing teeth and grasping hands… All we humans need do is enjoy the show and try not to get eaten before that know-it-all Mr. Jenner from across the street. (He thinks his overblown holiday light display is so special? Well, so do the Zombies. Flock to the blinkey lights, my pets!)
So it’s Zombie Awareness Month for February 2012. What do you, the consumer, get out of this holiday? Online Deals on Zombie Swag! Zombies and Toys, the one-stop-shop for all your Zombie related news and goodness, and the SOTA Toys Online Store are offering 25% off all Zombie Related Bobble Budds merchandise.

Patient Zero (Pat) is the zombie that started the undead pandemic. Nobody knows who he was, where he came from, what his goals, his hopes or dreams were, or where that big nasty gash on his arm came from, except for those closest to him. Too bad their brains were the first ones he ate after reanimating in Central City Hospital because they were in fact, closest to him, literally. In any case, we call him Pat, because nobody has objected to that name, especially him. If you happen to spot Pat, or any of his undead friends for that matter, you are advised to keep a wide berth. You don’t want to catch something from him, or much worse, him to catch you.
