PostSubject: Dead Island   Wed Feb 23, 2011 6:19 pm

Theres a new zombie game coming out sometime this year (some people are saying the 6th of June because of a tip in the trailer, I'm not too entirely sure). Theres a page about it on Facebook, which can be found here http://www.facebook.com/#!/deadislandgame?sk=app_4949752878.

I have to admit that judging by the cinematic trailer it will be the first zombie game to actually have a storyline, rather than four people trying to escape or a hack and slash just for fun. Dead Rising 2 came close with the whole 'Your daughter will turn into a zombie unless you get her medicene' thing, but no cigar.

Its also an FPS RPG, which you might like (talking about you Ben). It works in the same way Fallout 3 does, your constricted to a certain area (Capital Wasteland in Fallout, Dead Island in Dead Island) and the fact that your weapons slowly deteriorate and can be upgraded at workbenches makes me feel like this will be one to watch. IGN also does a walkthrough on subtle cues you might of missed, so check that out too.

tl;dr Awesome game called Dead Island coming out, watch the trailer. Thoughts?

It looks pretty good (a bit sad though if you think about it). Its very interesting what the story line may be. Im guessing the zombie outbreak may told towards the end of the game (like dead rising). Its also interesting that it's been made in to a RPG which makes me think what the benfits of leveling up may be.

Thats why I like it man, it actually shows the sadness behind a potential zombie outbreak. The stuff that would actually happen, coupled with awesome cinematics and brilliant sound, its such a good trailer. Yeah no doubt, if you watch the IGN Rewind Review, you'll see that as soon as the girl dies, she becomes a human again. And good point.

You should consider BUYING it so you can SUPPORT the people who put hard work into making it.

I was thinking this myself, apparantly Red Dead Undead has a mission where you turn into a zombie.

I have that game, and just reached that point yesterday. Had to save and quit once i got that far though, and havent played since. I dont think its just one mission, i think its a whole part of the rest of the storyline, i think.

Yeah man thats what I meant, I haven't actually played Red Dead yet but once I'll have I'll update these boards a tonne more. Once I get my xboxed chipped, I can review games and that. Actually, what I might do is make a topic saying that. Very Happy

I will point out here that the cinematic was not done by the creators of the game but another studio (that is in charge of creating sounds for the game) so i wouldn't go off that trailer for graphics and stuff, gameplay wise there have been a few short vids which ill link if you guys want to see Smile

Gah look at this noob, yes we are well aware of that captain numbnuts. We're saying about how the trailer is awesome, how its the best trailer I've ever seen. The fact that it was made by another company doesn't suggest anything considering the fact that the people actually making the game would have posed that story to the people creating it. The only thing they did was make the graphics better. And the way games are nowadays the graphics should be fine.


Douche.
