The Assassin’s Creed series has had a somewhat tumultuous history, as many games that have yearly releases do. Following the phenomenal success of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations was released and the series began to lose its appeal to some players.

State of Decay is an open world third person zombie survival horror game by Undead Labs. Already this sounds cliché, with zombies being the “in” antagonist for a few years now. Plenty of developers have played their zombie cards with games like Left 4 Dead, Dead Rising, Resident Evil, and even the critically acclaimed (but… Read More »
