    Oh I'm stoked for Dead Island. Don't get me wrong, I suppose I should have added that somewhere in this thread. I'll buy Dead Island as soon as I try it out, I'm sure I'll love it.

    Left 4 Dead 2 can look very nice when maxed, some animations look great. Also, how can a game be linear when it's primarily known for it's dynamic approach to game direction?

    The fov looks skewed on Dead Island like the dude's arms are far too long for his body. It will be forgotten very quickly I feel but time will tell.....can the same be said for Left 4 Dead 2 which is still being played by masses of people.

    Even Left 4 Dead still has a very active community.

    EDIT - @Bumblebee I agree that it has different things going for it which may help. Let's just see how well they are implemented.

    Looks AWESOME!


    There aren't any current Zombie open world RPG's, so it has that going for it. Regardless of how well it pulls it off, it's refreshing in my opinion.

    That's not to say that if it plays like shit I'll put that aside, but it looks solid so far.

    I'm gutted. I have this on preorder but could have had a sneaky peak at it early if my 360 was JTAG'd LOL :D

    I bet Uwe Boll will turn this into a movie.

    I like L4D in general but i miss the horror part of it. In a way that there would be less zombies, each individual mwould be much more dangerous and that dealing with each of them would require more skill. In L4D there are usually 3 zombies that you beat down with a frying pan or a guitar and then shitloads of them arrive and you have to gun them all down.
    Personally i prefer the first one...

    imma wait for the reviews, by the videos it looks like the story is like resident evil 4's or something and left 4 dead looks like its still a more fun game than this.

    I think the Metascore will be close to Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

    That's not a bad sign after all considering that Deus Ex 3 is a great game (for today's standards and those in the past).

    I'm so stoked for this. I watched part 1 of the PS3 gameplay, about 10 minutes of it.. it looks pretty awesome.

    BumbleBee, what's your steamID? We could play on Tuesday!

    I recommend watching the first 5 videos and try to stop after that if you intend to buy it. I probably won't pick it up until it's $39.99 because I have watched 16 videos already :laugh:

    You don't think it's worth the money?

    I do think it's worth the money but I have watched too much. I will forget the story and details in a couple months and it will be cheaper.

    lol That's why I stopped. I'm going to try before I buy. Watching the videos doesn't do justice imo.

    interesting Dead Island was announced 2 years before Left 4 Dead was even released.

    Strange...how the hell does somebody get an early copy (probably a worker) and then release it on youtube without getting copyright infringement?

    Pre-ordered this with BF3, I don't care if its a port or gets shit ratings because if its a zombie game it gets an extra 100% points from me :D :toast:

    Skipped around a few videos and never seen any part where it seemed like the player was close to death, that was a bit disappointing, but maybe I missed those parts. Might watch more later, kind of seemed slow and dry though.

    Gamestop employees have been known to take things home and a lot of them are young and don't get paid much so it's like having drug addicts process drugs. Gamestop employees are not allowed to take things home but it's not exactly a policy that is enforced because they only make $12 profit on a $59.99 sale but if they resell it used it's all profit.

    he dies like 7, 8 times.

    well the guy who recorded the single player campaign on Youtube finished the game.

    he completed 103 quests, 26% challenges and died 134 times in 22 hours :laugh:

    This is how I currently feel. I am a HUGE zombie fan, from the classic Resident Evil survival horrors to Infected on the PSP to L4D on PC and even flash games, I've played them all.

    the most valuable piece in my collection is a copy of Dead Space Ultra Limited Edition (X360) sealed which sell on eBay for $700-1500. there are no PS3 or PC versions, only 1000 were made and sold on the EA store.

    lack of split-screen co-op with consoles is kind of a bummer. I always loved going over to my friends house to play some L4D.
