Counter-Strike zombie chickens rise for Halloween

What's more fun than video games? Easter eggs and similar things slipped in games for the sole purpose of giving you a smile (or, you know, a fowl-based zombie to kill). Halloween is quickly approaching, and as it approaches gamers have been presented with what the company calls "A Murder Most Fowl".

Historical figures and events are often used in fictional works that take a creative license when it comes to storylines and depictions. Abraham Lincoln, for example, was never a vampire hunter, but that didn't stop a movie about that idea from being created.

Joining that latter category is the work of YouTube user SHUFFLE, who has created a "functional" iPhone in Minecraft.
