  • Dead Island ...

    I've watched some video and it looks pretty good! It seems to be an open world, mission based game like GTA and such but with Zombies!

    I'm interested in the 4 player co-op the most, I think I'll be getting it just not sure I will get it right away.

    Anyone else from here plan on picking it up??

    I will be getting it at some point. It looks great to me. The only thing that bothers me is some of the unrealistic weapon modifications. Electrifying a melee weapon seems too ridiculous to me...even considering its a zombie game.

    Should still be awesome though.

      I remember when the first trailer came out like in 06 and then it just went into limbo for like 3-4 years.

      The finished product looks pretty good though.

        As long as it doesn't bomb in reviews I'm gonna be picking it up day one. I'm DYING for some new good games, and I'm still not sure if Deus Ex is for me, so I'm waiting for a GameFly of it.

            I never really got into Dead Rising. My roommate loves it but I'm really not that fond.

              You should really give Deus Ex a shot. I got it the other day and absolutely LOVE IT. It very fun and addicting, and reminds me very much of the original.

              Plus, it's pretty challenging (especially if you decide to avoid killing people). Just don't try to play this like Halo or CoD, cuz you'll end up getting pwned like I did.

                It reminds me of a more detailed Borderlands, if that is indeed the case I will be picking it up along with my friends, Borderlands+Zombies=Winning

                  Well Dead Rising 1 was a spin off on George A. Romero's 1978 original Dawn of the dead.

                  Second one is in Vegas. It's a very underrated game imo.. Sandbox style game with every object as a weapon and 1000's of zombies all over the area with an action packed story.

                    Looks kind of bland. The first thing it reminded me of was "Far Cry 3" with zombies. I thought it looked interesting at first, but now I couldn't care less about it.

                    The only zombie game I plan on picking up is Resident Evil: ORC.

                      I wasn't really a fan of Dead Rising either.

                      Dead Island looks more interesting to me, the 4 player co-op should present some pretty awesome game play, especially if you have 4 amigos to slash with!!!

                        ^^^^this, even a mediocre game becomes great when you can play with friends

                          It seems like a more melee based Left 4 Dead

                          Not sure if i'll pick it up

                            Maybe gameplay wise, but outside of that it's completely different. It's open world and actually has a story. Also weapon variety is infinitely different, and you can use vehicles.

                              Yeah I know, I've played both, I just didn't like either enough to play through the whole game.
