Now, this hardly screams Nintendo and their quintessential family-fun-time ethics. Indeed, giant gorrila-nuts to screaming it, this isn't even a fleeting susurration of the term into a lover's ear. It's more pointing and laughing at them as as they rock back and forth, distraught at the antipathy this trailer just forced into their squelching vision-hives.
And then pissing in their hair or something. You cad you.

All in all, this short clip from CommunityGame was an unforeseen delight indeed. The train of thought that led from ‘Wii U Launch title' to ‘Desk-guy-with-a-viscera-flecked-bullet-hole-where-his-nose-used-to-be-and-probable-shit-stains-on-the-carpet' is one of the utmost peculiarity. Even so, I'm going to propel a brainwave of gratitude or two in Ubisoft's general direction for making it happen.

With a degree of trepidation, naturellement. This is axiomatically not in-game footage. Even so, the PR hyperbole paints an aesthetically-pleasing picture indeed. The report from videogamer reveals a first-person survival horror experience, set in (circa) present-day London. ZombiU presents another zombie apocalypse, with a wanton deluge of innovative mechanics. When your character dies, you will switch persona to that of another survivor, and can hunt down your previously occupied flesh-bag to kill them and recover your inventory.

Launching with (exclusive) mature titles such as this could prove a fantastic boon for the fledgling console. I only hope the pleasing picture doesn't later fade to reveal nothing more than an unsightly Jackson Pollock painting. (You know the sort, where it appears an entire menagerie of zoo animals have taken turns to vomit/crap/expel other bodily fluids upon the canvas.)
