31 Days - Day 7: Weird Kids on the Block


Hello everyone and welcome to day 7. Boy these days sure fly by. I felt like I was celebrating my sisters sweet 16 just the other day. Now it’s a totally different month and we march ever onward to the end of the year. Speaking of time todays song is

Zombies ate my neighbors: Weird Kids on the block FF5LR-I4YAK-H3ZD3

It might be hard to imagine now but there was a time where zombies were not as prevalent as they are today. In fact I would say they were somewhat of a rarity, at least the apocalyptic kind in terms of games. I remember getting my hands on this game years ago and loving every minute of it. Being a 2 player game I played with my brother often.

There was just something about the way it plays that I still find very appealing to this day, even more so than a game like Death Road to Canada despite them being similar. Collecting items and saving people was very fun, the variety of enemies was also great as it covered many different monsters rather than it just being about zombies. I enjoyed collecting better weapons and exploring every nook and cranny for items I could add to my arsenal. Another thing that I like about this game over Death Road, is that you aren’t fucked over between every stage by events out of your control. I suppose I enjoy the consistency of zombies ate my neighbors over the randomness of Death Road.

It’s really a shame that we’ll never get anything quite like Zombies ate my neighbors. Despite many games coming along over the years. The only one to come close at all was state of decay  and even then it lacks the quirky charm of ZaMN.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
