Topic: Dead Island

Check out this incredible trailer for the upcoming humans-vs-zombies-on-an-island game.  This is probably the single best video game trailer I've ever seen:

Edited... silly loudlon.

Re: Dead Island

great trailer I edited to post to our own article on it smile silly boy!

Re: Dead Island

Whoops!  Much obliged.

Re: Dead Island

Yes.. It is a really good trailer.  I've been reading up about the gameplay and I'm very interesting in "seeing" how it will all come together.  But it is a great introduction, to hopfully a great game.

Re: Dead Island

Huh.  I have to admit I was a bit puzzled when Meh said he linked the trailer to my article but rolled with it.  Just clicked the link and realized the article is actually Deth Banger's.

Sorry, DB.  Wasn't trying to steal your thunder, bro. smile

Re: Dead Island

WOW...Beautiful tralier....Wow.

Re: Dead Island

Definitely cool! I'm gonna show this trailer to my kids and have a bidding war. Winner will be determined by how many extra chores they're willing to do for it???  smile

Re: Dead Island

that has to be one of the best game trailers i've ever seen.........it's up there with the 'gears' mad world trailer.

lets just hope the game delivers..........

Re: Dead Island

It was a good trailer, I remember seeing this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kx1tl-X8 … re=related about it years ago. I really hope they actually use that feature in the game. I really hope it sets itself apart from the loads of zombie and fps games.

Re: Dead Island

Here's the trailer shown in standard forward play, as opposed to reverse/slow-mo.  Loses some of the emotional impact, but still a good and scary trailer:

Re: Dead Island

not quite as effective...........but still quite emotional at the end there.

Re: Dead Island

You gonna pick this up for xbox Lon?  If so ill get a copy as well...you need to get dead space 2 so we can play online!  Its a lot like left 4 dead just in 3rd person

Re: Dead Island

Although I'm not a big gamer (BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM was the last game I bought and played all the way through, and that's just 'cause I'm a lifelong Batman nerd), and despite the fact that I'm sorta sick of zombies . . .  I'm gonna have to pick this one up when it's released.  Judging from that trailer, it's just gonna be too kick-ass *not* to.

Re: Dead Island

Finally, a next generation Left 4 Dead video game.  This will be a "money well spent" purchase for me!!

Re: Dead Island

I've been keeping tabs on this game for some time now.Looks to be one of the best games I've seen in along time.

Re: Dead Island

When this trailer first dropped a couple months ago, it floored me. Still an amazing trailer, and THE best I've ever seen. But the more I read about the game, the less interested I am in playing it. It REALLY sounds like an FPSRPG... boring. There is leveling, stat building, hoarding... guh, not my thing anymore. Initially it looked like a L4D clone, and that's fine. But as more and more info comes out, it seems more like L4D meets Fallout... and I hate Fallout.

Eh, knowing me, I'll get it anyway, cause it's what I do. LOL! smile

Re: Dead Island

I want this game.  I'm not sick of Zombie movies or games at all.  Think they at least help us by keeping us aware of the inevitable apocalypse that is coming our way.

Re: Dead Island

I'll be covering this game at E3.

Re: Dead Island

I stumbled on this randomly one night when I was bored a few months ago. It. Looks. Amazing. Def one of the best trailers I have seen for a game. I can't wait for it to come out [:

Re: Dead Island

Apparently, the trailer is nothing like the game play. The game play will be more Left 4 Dead style with make shift weapons, similar to Dead Rising. To someone like myself, I find this disappointing. The trailer gave me such high hopes and another FPS zombie game is a dime a dozen. I'm hoping there will be more to it. I'll let you all know in a few weeks.

Re: Dead Island

So is it a melee weapon game only or are they actually going to have guns? I didn't care for Dead Rising but loved L4d. I think the only thing missing from those two were a storyline, so I was thinking this one would bring more background. Idk I'm still excited to see more gameplay.

Re: Dead Island

Don't know at this point besides what I wrote. I'll actually get to play it when I am in LA, so I'll have more info then.

Re: Dead Island

This was on their website

Features

- first-person melee combat

- 4 player co-op

- weapon customization

- set on an open world tropical island

- RPG elements for character development

- hordes of gruesome zombies



for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC - Release Date: 2011

So yeah, I'm pretty sure it is just going to be melee combat but the trailers they have for it make it seem like there is going to be a good storyline to it. But we will have to see (:

Re: Dead Island

There WILL be gun play, but minimal. There's a video of actual game play, and it REALLY reminds me of Fallout 3. Talk to this guy, talk to that guy, get quests, drive across town to save this person, weapons wear out/take damage... eh, looking more and more like I'll be passing on this one.
