The loveable (and a bit decayed) Stubbs the zombie returns in... Stubs The Zombie, a remastered port of the cult classic game releasing later this week on Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC.


I was a big fan of the original game back in the day. This new remaster seems cool, but what I really want is a big, new sequel. I always thought Stubbs had a great setup. Zombie visits a retro-futuristic city and causes mayhem. And you get to play as the zombie, creating your own zombie army. Take that concept and expand on it. I’d play that. I’m tired of killing zombies. I want to be the zombie.

Seeing Stubs back makes me wish for a return of other ‘00 era games with great humor. Would be great to get the Planet Moon classics Giant Citizens Kabuto and Armed & Dangerous to come back in some kind of form.
