ZombiU was a launch title for the Nintendo WiiU. It's a first person survivor horror game that can be unforgiven at times - unlike mainstream 'survivor' horror games featuring zombies such as modern Resident Evil, Left 4 Dead, etc this game focus on the grim atmosphere of a post-apocalyptic London and the fragility of your character: you play in the game a a 'normal' person inexperienced with combat and survivor tactics. When the game starts get in the skin of your average bloke you have an ID card with a random name, occupation and age and if you die, you get to play as another person on Normal Mode anyway - on Survivor Mode if you die it's game over - no second chances. Ammo and supplies are scarce throughout the game and you'll be forced to scavenge for supplies now and then, revisiting old areas. The game is basically linear but you wouldn't want to stroll around aimlessly in a more "realistic" situation where you are as fragile as human flesh can be. By no means this is a 'definitive' guide, since much of the fun-factor of this game is discovering new strategies for each part - and you will be forced to do so since one mistake can get you killed!

ZombiU is the Wii U's extremely difficult survival horror first-person shooter. You're not supposed to be able to make it through it in one life, though the game's Survival mode challenges you to do that. A few brave souls have cleared Survival mode. About 13 of them so far, it seems.

Most of them have been praised by the developers— in the game. I've played ZombiU. I like the game. But I'm never going to make it through Survival. So I asked Eric how he pulled it off and if he has any tips for the rest of us.

We did this interview over e-mail. Kotaku : Set this up for me. Where do you live? How old are you? How'd you make time for this? Beasley: I live in South Florida. Plantation to be exact. I'm a teacher much like the beloved Ben Bertolli , 23 years old, and Thanksgiving break makes for a whole lot of free time. Kotaku : How long did it take you to clear survival mode? Beasley: My actual run clocked in at 6 hours 59 minutes. All in all, my attempts added together constituted 23 hours and 36 minutes.

Beasley: 4 failed attempts were made, finally snagging that gold star on the 5th. I never played Normal mode. I went straight to survivor, and have never tried normal mode. Kotaku : I assumed you failed a few times. What was the most painful failed run? Beasley: It's a draw between two: The first my second attempt [involved] the first zombie encountered after exiting the nursery. I hear the groan to my left and turn to see him standing up.

Instinctively, I swing the bat in order to keep him on the ground and set him up for a quick finish. Turns out, he was an exploding zombie. This was especially depressing, because I was having a pretty flawless run and had killed a few player zombies that really beefed up my stash.

Beasley: "Turns out I'm not as fast as I thought I was, and didn't clear the blast radius. So I killed myself trying to be a hero. The second heartbreaker fourth attempt came in the arena, during the second wave while the arena is still at it's smallest. I tried to be slick by letting zombies get close, shooting a gas can, and bolting before it exploded, taking out the zeds. Turns out I'm not as fast as I thought I was, and didn't clear the blast radius.

So on my next run, after seeing how close I was to being "free and clear," I was really kicking myself. Kotaku : What was your narrowest escape? Beasley: Again, a draw between two. As this was run five, I was starting to get cocky about early game moments, and actually used two medpacks fleeing the supermarket. I was trying to use the ol' crawl and bash more on that later and got cornered.

Then, in my attempt to escape to the manhole, the door got stuck loading, so it was myself staring five angry zombies in the face in a narrow hallway with no way out. The door popped, I got out, thoroughly frazzled and with renewed conviction for early game areas. Beasley: " I was shaking when the encounter was over, knowing that dumb luck in aiming got me through. The second was when I was moving through Buckingham Palace, chasing down the cure in the later moments of the game.

A quick hop over some one-way rubble and I was staring two armor zombies and the dead doctor now a turbo-charged red infected through the door.

Shotgun out, I blasted away. The bullets ricocheted off the armor while red sprinted up from the rear. Frantically, pulling the trigger and just hoping, I managed to down the red, and smack a helmet off of one of the armors. I was shaking when the encounter was over, knowing that dumb luck in aiming got me through. Kotaku : Did Survival mode make you a less pleasant person to be around while you were playing? I can imagine thrown controllers not that you should throw the GamePad!

Beasley: Not at all. I'm very patient, and dying just made me say, "Oh well, here we go again! That, and I was driven by the notion that I may get put on the wall if I was first to beat the game. The open taunt from Ubisoft [in the game] was so grating to me as a gamer, I had to rise to their challenge. I never really considered giving up, and was always hoping to be fast and efficient enough to be first.

I got fifth, but my name was still on the wall :. Kotaku : Who was your character? What was their story? Beasley: David Fischer, Scientist. I suppose he was in his lab working on how to make even more flavors for Doritos Tacos, and was working so intently that he never noticed that the whole world had gone south until he went outside. Kotaku : What did you usually keep in your character's backpack?

I do not use any other weapons than the initial handgun, scoped carbine, and the M7 shotgun located very near to the scoped carbine location at Tower of London. I use the guns when things go south, or it is just safer like taking enemies out from a distance with the scoped rifle, or blasting apart a red with the shotgun.

I never, EVER pick up planks. They are useless. I have never barricaded a door. I will never barricade a door. Kotaku : What do you recommend people keep in their backpack? Beasley: "I have never barricaded a door. Beasley: At the very least, always have a medpack and a flare in the hot boxes. They can be used in a pinch, and having a medpack usable while being swarmed keeps you alive for valuable seconds that might save your life.

Also, make sure that you save room in your pack for items to be picked up. Many times, some of the best items are at the end of sections, and leaving them behind can be extremely undesirable. Give yourself options to be flexible with your inventory. Don't be afraid to go out in the wild feeling a little bare, because there may be items out there to nab. Also, and again, never bring planks. Kotaku : What other tips do you have for people who want to make it through survival mode?

Kotaku : Finally, when a zombie is on you Or shove? Beasley: If there is one zombie, melee unless he's red or explodey. Two, melee, trying to separate them or hit a crawlspace. I only shoot reds and sploders, when I'm in the most dire of straits, or in the final moments of the game to ensure my survival and have lots of ammo stockpiled. I don't know if I ever shoved a zombie. Not even once, I think. Beasley: A lot of the notes I've given apply strictly to surviving.

The instruction manual has details about the score system, and going for a high score means doing a few things against what I've said here. That's fine, but my tips are meant for making it out alive, not being the next Billy Mitchell. One more thing: Make friends. The more dead friends you have to loot, the better. My Handle is DeDeDe.
