Ubisoft’s tie-in webcomic ZombiU: Z-14 is finished. The episodic comic released once a day for two weeks, and charts the first 14 days after the zombie outbreak. You can read the whole thing online here; it’s well worth a look just for the cleverness of the quasi-animation sued to display different images as you scroll vertically through the tale.ZombiU is out now everywhere the Wii U is.
Thanks, Evil Avatar.

ZombiU is out now in the US and arrives with the Wii U launch in Australia and Europe this week.

ZombiU uses the Game Pad in some pretty special ways, but probably none is as special as the one where you take on the role of the King of Zombies and beat the snot out of your couch multiplayer partner. Good times.

Rayman Legends seems to be pretty high on many Wii U early adopter’s wish lists, and with this new batch of gorgeous screens, it’s not hard to see why. But for those of us not entirely convinced by platformers, a taster will hit the Wii U eShop in time for launch day.

If ZombiU is the first real example of what dual-screen gaming will bring to the core, the next generation’s future could be lush. Or soaked in gore. Either way, says Patrick Garratt, Ubi Montpelier’s undead debut breaks new ground.

A recent hands-on with Ubisoft’s From Dust saw VG247 turn divine creator, and, in the name of charity and good will, shepherd the weak through the valley of darkness. Hands-on impressions.

Ubisoft’s released a minute-long trailer of Rayman Origins from ComicCon, pretty much showing off the awards it won at E3 as well as the “unofficial” awards. Ancel’s amazing-looking platformer is pretty much the reason why you haven’t seen BG&E2, but going by the E3 showing, that’s not as much as a bad thing as you think it is. Get it below.
Origins releases this November for PS3, Wii and 360.
