Vidya Retro Streaming Feature of House of the Dead

Watch live video from VidyaRetro on TwitchTV

With the release of Typing of the Dead Overkill on Steam, we get to take a look at it along with other games in the House of the Dead series.

Update: Our livestream is over, but you can expect the Retro crew including Bartman3010, DavidTL, Overlord, Perfect Chaos Zero, GeneHF and Guess Who looking at several titles including The House of the Dead III, The House of the Dead 4, Zombie Revenge, and several random mobile games as well as The House of the Dead Overkill – Lost Reels, and the horrors of the mine cart in Sonic 4 Episode 1. 

Flick of the Dead released to the Japanese iOS app store

Flick of the Dead, which was trademarked in early April, has released today in Japan to their iOS store. The game is, as many guessed, a Typing of the Dead for iOS devices. This iteration is said to have added over 25,000 words, a boss rush and a drill mode. Unfortunately, the game is exclusive to Japan at the moment, however given that Miku Flick released to English app stores, it is possible we’ll see this getting a wider release at some point. The game is currently free to download, so if you can download it, do so. After the break, screens!  “I don’t want to tap!”

Typing of the Dead is back

[Ah, we meet again.]

SEGA is going to bring back Typing of the Dead, with the help of Rakuten’s job placement assistance site Minna no Shuushoku Katsudou Nikki. Just like the original, you have to fend off zombie attacks by typing the words on screen. Only this time the words are changing.

SEGA surveyed Minna no Shuushoku Katsudou Nikki members and collected over 3,000 words that related to hunting jobs, these are the words that are used to fend off zombies in one of the game’s 4 modes, rightfully named “Job Hunting Mode.”

The game comes out tomorrow (October 7th) on PC, at the low price of ¥2,300 (about $28 USD). SEGA West, where the hell is my Steam version?
