If you ever play this game on the stream please, PLEASE, have your character be female. Her voice is HILARIOUSLY awful. It sounds like someone who just had their wisdom teeth out and had a cold trying to do a femshep impression.
Does anyone else notice that this opening cutscene is almost the exact same one as Dragon Age Origins?
Blades = Grey Wardens
Scout guy = Duncan
Darkspawn = Undead (both are even wearing armor and can use weapons)
Both organisations use rituals to turn the tide, like seriously.
Maybe if you had some sort of hive-mind thing with the zombies you could use them as scouts. Although it'd be more like trying to use lemmings, can't tell if they are being killed by the enemy or just falling off a cliff. And all the moaning in your head would be distracting.
