Judge the Judge Dredd Game Not Lest Ye Be Judged

0

Oh, who am I kidding. Judge it. It looks terrible. Why, if you managed to snag the Judge Dredd license, would you decide to use it in Gauntlet/Smash TV rip-off where you don’t even fight criminals, but zombies? Has Judge Dredd ever fought zombies before? Moreover, what the hell is “zombie crime”? Does Mega-City One have specific laws for the undead? I mean, if a lion gets loose in the suburbs and starts eating toddlers, sure, you hunt the lion and put it down, but you don’t say the lion is breaking the law. I mean, you wouldn’t try the lion in a judicial court, and I wouldn’t think you’d make zombies do it, either. As far as I know, being a walking, rotting corpse that occasionally tries to eat the jury’s brains would be considered somewhat prejudicial.

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
