Awesome co-op online fun. In teams of four you make your way through zombie horde scenarios presented in movie styles. Fun and hectic. Also, you can kill zombies with a frying pan like a post apocalyptic reeves and mortimer. What more could you want?

One of the best TV series of the last season, Game of Thrones is an adaptation of 'Song of Ice and Fire' by George R.R.

Not a bad film - based on 'true' events, The Haunting In Connecticut is well made with a decent cast. Unfortunately, it tries too hard to make you jump and isn't really scary at all. Still, a reasonable way to kill a couple of hours.
