I think it looks pretty cool
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

I'd just like to point out that he said "Gun's aren't realistic, they simply wouldn't be on an island" or something along those lines, and yet I see a fucking electric machete. What part of THAT is realistic.

What he meant was that on an Island guns would be rare.

I wonder if this game will pay homage to the ending of Day of the Dead.    I want to just go to a small beach somewhere, find a ruined helicopter, and pick up the Caribbean dude's pistol.

They clearly haven't done their research. Tropical islands are filled with guns. FILLED. Especially here in the Caribbean.

Is the island only a vacation resort or is it a nation with a large populace?

It's not a large populace though however, more like the island from the end Dawn of the dead.

It's a tourist island. I'd imagine something the size of Hawaii at most.

Um. The island of Hawaii? That seems too big.
Maybe closer to one of the smaller islands in the chain.

Smallest one would be Kaho'olawe and the second smallest is Ni'ihau, which that island is populated by Hawaiians only. So the closest being that said, would be Kauai or Lanai

EDIT:
Kauai's populace is 58,303, Lanai is 3,193.
Maui can fit, they have 117,644 on the island. And it's also a hotel resort, just like this game has it.

Why not?
Also, I'm not concerned with population size but island size.

Sweet a sprawling zombie rpg type game, my pants have just burst open. I'm quite interested in the drop in drop out co-op.

Still, doesn't this game feel very smiler to Far Cry 2 in a way.

Yeah, I read it in some of those comments on the 11 minute commentary of it. People said they thought it's like Far Cry feeling to it too.

That isn't technically a bad thing, Far Cry 2 was a pretty good game that was let down by few bad design choices.

Dead Island looks pretty good with the whole improvise your own weapon thing it's got going on, and there's even said to be customisable vehicles.

I've read recently that even with the whole Dead Rising/2 customise everything, they're still doing heart ripping, character caring, tear jerking storylines and stuff that will actually make you want to finish quests and look for more background info.

Not bad. I'll probably wait till the price comes down on amazon and get it for 15-20 bucks. I generally don't pay full price for zombie games. I don't have to play them during release.

Greenmangaming's got it for 25% off for the next 26 hour.
And the front page should have a code for another 20% off. (20SUM-MERSA-VINGS)
Best part is, it actually gives you the steam version. Like, a code to get it on steam.

In case anyone trusts it enough to pre-order it, might as well get it cheaper.


Wait, no, make that 25 days. Guess that's release date, I''m assuming the sale last til then.
