Watch us play State of Decay from 5pm BST

Zombie nation. 

You wait years for a platform exclusive action game set in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse and then two come along at once. Well, you likely haven't waited years - there's hardly been a shortage of undead adventures recently - but at least The Last of Us and State of Decay are gracious enough to serve their action with a little twist.

You can read our verdict on The Last of Us elsewhere on the site, and Simon Parkin's currently looking into State of Decay for a review we'll be looking to bring you next week, but for now know this: Undead Labs' Xbox Live Arcade title is a smart, thoughtful open world game that's more than worth your time. Ian Higton's going to be working through the first 90 minutes to help give you a flavour from 5pm BST tonight.

You can see plenty more Let's Plays, livestreams and developer interviews at our dedicated YouTube channel, which is as pleasant a place as any to while away a nice sunny afternoon.
