Cool trailer, I just don't think that this is I game that I'd play

I read this as Wonton Zombie Murder. I must be hungry.

It would be really nice to see London accurately portrayed in a game, and not rely on landmarks and architecture that turns me into a tourist in the country I've lived in all my life. London is a huge modern metropolis, with loads of fascinating places that a game could be set, so obviously what better place to represent that than a nearly 900 year old castle.The Getaway managed it, MW3 was pretty close, and that's about it. As much as I love Zombies, and are interested in playing Zombie U this might as well be set in the 'Friends goes to London' episode.

The tower guards were able to keep their hats on after being turned. Duty first.

@jonnyboy: way to generalize the game's representation of the city based upon a single environment. ZombiU dont care

I may be the only one on the planet who wants to play this game given how much people (seem to?) hate the WiiU... BUT I THINK IT LOOKS NEAT!

They must be averaging... what, two unique instances of "go into a low wall-hole a get pulled back out by a zombie" per trailer?

You're definitely not the only one. With Dishonored and XCOM out the door, ZombiU and Hitman are my most anticipated non-handheld games this year!

Zombie beefeaters!

That is one dirty camera lens. :p I don't like that effect at all.

Was really hoping someone else would make a Battlefield Z joke.

Hahaha, my feelings exactly. I'm so tired of 2000's zombie pirate ninja werewolf vampire etc craze.
Posted by bybeach

I became very tired of Zombies long ago, and I hardly do any Zombie games and such. Having said that, they do seem to be trying....

As other ppl. mentioned, luv the hats staying/kept on, very british (I would assume)

Some neat gameplay ideas with the second screen, but the art direction in this seems a bit...flat? Don't get me wrong it's competently designed and you can see some texture detail and lighting that does seem slightly beyond the 360 and PS3, but what they do with it seems kinda generic.

I'm totally glad the US gets the WiiU before PAL regions do, I'll be able to hear whether this game is awesome or if it totally sucks, it feels like it's got a good chance of going either way.

I dont hate the WiiU. The launch games just arent all that great. ZombiU and Nintendo Land? C'mon. I'll admit i'm starved for a new console. As much as I like PC gaming I get sidetracked too easily, and i'm too lazy to switch between monitors. ;p

But i'd like there to be at least one game that proves the technology isnt just a gimmick before I get it. I have faith there will be one but from what they've shown of ZombiU it looks like all the touch screen is used for is mini-games and inventory management, which is sad.

What would you expect it to be used for in a game like this? the touch screen is no different than the DS touch screen. Different games will find different uses for it based on their needs.

I hate to say this, but this looks like a Sourcemod. If it wasn't a WiiU launch title, I really doubt it'd get anywhere near this much press.

That's no effect, it's just last-gen graphics.

This actually looks a bit interesting...

Posted by golguin

If I was getting a WiiU at launch I would definitely pick up this game. I have yet to be let down by a zombie game I've bought, which is the reason why I'm steering clear of RE6.

Posted by hollitz

This continues to be the only interesting thing about the Wii U.

Has Alex ever written a non-snarky post title and one sentence summary?

Posted by SpartanHoplite

I would like to play this, looks cool, but not getting a console for it, so.. :'(

What completely farcical fiction!

...firearms in England!

Posted by MeatSim

There really should be a limit on how many trailers you can release for a game.

Posted by Mars

I really wish I could get excited for the WiiU, but it just feels like another Nintendo gimmick that I don't need.

Posted by jasondesante

@Mars: think of the CoD sheep.....playing cod online using the tablet controller while someone else watches netflix on the big screen. HEAVEN!

Posted by Krathoon

This game seems to have more of a story that I thought. It needs a better title.

Edited by VampyreDjango

Funny, nobody seems to complain about the multitude of trailers for other games...Assassin's Creed III, for instance...

Posted by Senate4242

Being new console starved, this game and Lego City: Undercover will make me pick up a Wii:U despite hating the new "controller"

Posted by GiantAlston

Can't wait for the release of this!
