20 or 68: The Magic Numbers | May 19, 2011

by Joe

It’s feeling a lot like summer here in the Greater Tokyo Area and, lemme tell ya, it’s a little much. Everyday is around 25 degrees Celsius (77 F) and the humidity seems to be climbing daily. I’ve found that my ideal temperature is 20 C or 68 F, with a cool, fair breeze and no clouds in the sky. Ideal for walking, just right for swimming, and perfect for outdoor activity. If there is somewhere in the world that is 20 C or 68 F all year round, let me know. I may have to look into changing my citizenship :D

Of course, this got me thinking about zombies. Zombies would thrive in areas with my ideal climate. And, I must admit that I do sometimes miss the crisp, cold, refreshing air of Canadian winters. The same winters that would turn zombies into ice statues, at least for a few months.

Anyways, I’m torn about where I want to end up in the future. I’m not a fan of hot and humid weather, but I do love beaches and bikinis… heh heh, zombies in bikinis, think about that one. :D

Enjoy Scene 22 – “Your Safety, First”! (Sound is kinda important for this one!)

Please continue to vote! :D Bug’s sketch is still the incentive! Thank you for voting everyday!

This makes me wonder wether Greybane’s “powers” are somehow related/similar to Joe’s.

boooooooo. i wanted greybane to be safed -.- .stupid survivors. I hope he doesn’t die…… and i swear i#m gonna puke if you make him into somekind of Machine/werewolf hybrid. I always hated it when they does that kind of shit in Movies/comics/animes. hybrid things have been done sooo often that it not even a little funny anymore. At least your Zompyre were kind of a good new thing but lets not over do it.pleease?

The sound effects were pretty schnazzy at that last part.
Though I wonder if bug was some part Were, maybe an incomplete one…?
…….. Wait a second are Greybane and Bug escaped test subjects, just recaptured…!?

come to wellington in new zealand. because of how far (but not too far) south it is, and because it’s so close to the sea, the temperature generally stays around 14-20 celsius. some nights get frost, and there’s always a nice breeze :)

Psy- I agree 100%… He’ll take it and try to beome the kid’s hero… Either that or escape with it and try to take ove the world… He might even meet Cross and Andy and join them as one of their kin…?

I doubt, after Rusty has seen the good in Bernie, that he will try to steal arbiter. For one, he wouldn’t know how to use it, for another, he uses a crossbow, not a rifle. I think that once they get to the Machine City, Greybane will break out as a full blown werewolf by then, although needing backup.

Zombies in Bikinis sounds like the name of some heavy metal band or something.

I don’t remember seeing you mention having read The Zombie Survival Guide or World War Z. If you haven’t you’ve got to pick those up; Especially the second. It’s a great novel with stories of zombies from all over the world, including your own Canada and Japan. And it focuses on climate’s effect on the zombies more than most.

Glad to see Bernie helping the survivors! I hope he makes it to Greybane, even if he is cyborg Greybane by then, on time though.

As far as those temperature ranges go, Joe, I’d have to say that San Diego, California, is a really nice place to live.

TADAAA!!!!!

machines like to play with living beings, makes them feel more rational, more superior.

Shame on all of you who voted for Bernie escorting the survivors, he would’ve done it either way since rescuing Greybane was impossible. However we could’ve seen an entire scene of fighting and not all the bubbling of Rusty:”me have a rusty heart, me don’t believe no one”. Anyway can’t wait to see a machine city.

Keep up the good work Joe! Every scene it gets more thrilling. Cheers!

I still feel that trying to rescue Greybane alone would be more trouble than it’s worth, also I think Bernie had the sense this time around to make sure that he put some kind of bio sensor or something along those lines in his suit so that only he can use it and anyone else he designates so that it can’t be used by people like Cross

If Rusty steals Arbiter I will frown! And then hope he messes up by not knowing how to control it. Hah!

i am a fan of the pocalypse but, maybe when the characters talk you can make them walk a little faster, and make the pixels a better revolution if possible, not by changing pixels but by making the pixels blend, in the characters though, not the scenery those are flawless, maybe put the characters name above the text for convience, more sound, not to be picky but i just think it would make pocalypse better?

I don’t think Rusty could steal Arbiter *cough* (Retribution) *cough*, If Bernie had half a brain, he would have many many security systems in the suit.
