31 Days: Day 14 On the Road


One of my favorite things to do when I see my brother is to play a game together. We usually have a co-op game that we only play when we’re together. This gives us something to look forward to and keeps the game fresh for the both of us. Today I would like to share with you a title from one of our more recent co-op sessions.


Death Road to Canada: They Can’t Be Stopped

My brother adores this game and I understand why. Death Road is the closest thing we will ever get to having a “Zombies Ate my Neighbors” styled game. The idea of roaming place to place in order to collect supplies and weapons while working towards an objective is fun. The road side events are often humorous and well thought out, further complemented by the very wide cast of characters you can obtain. Some the characters even have cool special weapons with unique properties like the Valkyrie and her hammer.


As for myself I enjoy the game for the same reasons, though I feel the RNG could be toned down a bit. To me Death Road is everything I like about zombie games and film, wrapped up into one convenient package.

Now I chose this song because this is the most frightening track in the game. This song plays when a stage turns from day to night, making the hoard of zombies more numerous and aggressive. From there it’s a race against time to finish up your looting and get going. Do you stay longer for the loot and risk the hoard, or do you play it safe and cut your losses. Sometimes you simply need resources and leaving some behind is not an option for that run. The feeling of desperation and urgency is only elevated by the music and I love it.  If you’re looking for a game this Halloween season that encapsulates some of the best elements of a good zombie film/game I strongly recommend giving Death Road to Canada a try.

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).
