ok, technically tomorrow (midnight tonight). But anyhow
ok, Dead island...what is it (for those living under the proverbial rock)
A trailer came out on the internet awhile back...no fuss, no big marketing campaign, just this little trailer showing up..and it went super viral to
the bajillionth degree (due to its very controversial use of a child no doubt)
It was a super emotional debut of a game secretly in development. The community went nuts.
So, as time went on, people learned more about the game. a typical zombie apocalypse outbreak on some remote slice of paradise island resort. Its an
"open world" meaning you do what you want, when you want. Your mission seems geared around survival (of course), rescueing survivors, getting
Anyhow, people dismissed the initial video overall...frankly, nothing could be that good..but each new release of trailers, some gameplay, showed that
indeed this would be the zombie game everyone was waiting for...a cross between left 4 dead (FPS) heavy roleplay, and the kickarse ability that you
can go it alone, or have 3 other friends join up with you and play out the adventure together.
ok, that updates you to at least as much as I know about it...there is still lots of be discovered, and the company has actually been pretty tight
lipped about all the interesting things going on inside it..best to suprise people than tell them about all the details and have them hype it up more
than it is implemented...
So, your impressions? your hopes? What type of character will you attempt to play? greedy survivalist that cares for nobody? will you try to save
every single survivor under the sun? pretty open forum for this game until people actually start playing it and can remark coherently about it as
either a epic win or total letdown.

Well..looks like another autumn spent on my xbox
Let's see.. melee focused gameplay with customizable weapons ( like attaching tnt to a knife, lighting it and throwing it into a horde of
Oh and let's not forget Skyrim, Gears 3, Rage, Batman: Arkham City and Assassin's Creed.
Off Topic: Have you seen this yet? I dunno about you, but I want one.

I love zombie games but from the gameplay I saw it looks as if it's something I will be passing up.... Until reviews come out at least....
Then you haven't seen the right vids I guess
20 minutes of gameplay...seems pretty random.
around the 2 minute mark = first encounter with zambabies
3:50 (omg, they run once they start)
4:30 = win (carmageddon)
Ultimately, its a roleplay game (think oblivion moreso than black ops) the battle is one part, not the totality of it.
Personally I wish there was more guns, but they were going for a more realistic feel..and not all tropical resorts aren't armed to the teeth for no
real reason...so, even though there are guns and such, the push was more melee and creative destruction than simply pop em at 50 yards
Finally I would point out 7:50 for some action (the hits you get really seem to hurt)
I'm definitely getting this! I've read enough on it to know i'll enjoy it. I'm all for co-op zombie slaying!
I'm not really a fan of games that are in FP....but MAG is a FPS and I love that so I don't think it will be that big of a problem.

I might just leave it till next week for some peace.
You realize the wall of silence will only last for about 3 minutes, then 3 minutes of passive aggressive behavior, then all out infinite tantrums.
Anyhow, assuming your first born isn't like 40 years old, please take a few moments to check out the game...if he/she is underage, you may need to
make the parental decision...pretty graphic and disturbing game actually. I love me my video games, but do realize that youngins shouldn't just be
given free pass to play everything.
But if he is of age, then sure...but then again, you could just tell him to get a job and get it himself. heh
See it's just not interesting enough for me to lay the money down on yet, got a ps3 btw..... Too many other games that are coming out within the
next 2 months that will be holding my attention anyhow, even if I wanted it I couldn't afford it with the line up I have in mind......
