On this episode of The Nerdiest Talk Show on Earth, I interview the director of the documentary One of Us, Kelsey Davis. There is a little static from some unseen technical problems, but other than that it is an excellent episode!
Oh Steam, you seem to know just when I need something to put onto my site. It is as if your little three day weekend, ‘hey try this game we are trying to sell’ is geared towards the cynics like me who need to tear apart something on the internet in order to keep our little websites and live streams alive. So thank you Steam. Thank you for giving me something worth while to talk about and boy is there a lot to talk about. The video game I am looking at today is just one of many games that has saturated the market with numerous competitive zombies vs. humans style game, Contagion. DayZ, Seven Days to Die, Unturned, Left 4 Dead, and the list just keeps going on of games based around the concept of surviving a zombie apocalypse. As much as I love zombies and zombie stories, I do have to admit that even a fan like myself is getting tired of zombie games upon zombie games piling into Steam and other outlets that we are buried up to our necks in rotting flesh. Contagion like many games in this series before it started off as a simple mod created by one die hard individual that seemed to snowball into a full fledged video game thanks to the absolutely dangerous combination of Steam and Kickstarter. Now I’m not normally one who takes joy out of attacking the little guy. (For those who read my Mountain review, shut up.) But at the end of the day I am a critic. It is what I do.

So yeah, most of you can see where this review is about to go. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Contagion (Video Game)”
It is over! The HvZ: Athens Invitational is finished and I am all kinds of tired! It has been a fun 36 hours! Thank you to everyone who came, it was so much fun getting to meet everyone and know everyone! Needless to say, I am exhausted and didn’t have a chance to play a game or go to the movies so sadly no review for Sunday. I will be returning Tuesday for another review and Thursday with a new video! Much love and thanks for reading and watching!
On this very special episode of the Nerdiest Talk Show on Earth, we will be promoting the up and coming HvZ:Athens Spring Invitational Friday and Saturday March 28th and 29th! Please check out the videos and meet some of the players you will be playing within the next week as well as here stories from some of the savvy veterans.
Had a great time this week at Bowling Green’s Humans vs. Zombies invitational. Much love to all my friends from Ohio University who went on the trip. It was a blast!
… But on this end I am also physically and mentally exhausted. I’m pretty much running on nothing but coffee and miracles so no review tonight sadly. I will be returning Tuesday for a new review and a few videos down the line including the next installment of The Nerdiest Talk Show on Earth as well as a friend of mine and myself trying some strange soft drinks that I found on my journeys.

With Humans vs. Zombies only a few days away here in Athens, I thought it would be a good idea to upload an old video of mine telling a story of a mishap that happened in one of the games in the past. Also if you are in the Athens Ohio area, come join us for HvZ: Athens Fall Game 10/15 – 10/22! Continue reading “Tanner Tells of Humans vs. Zombies”
