Dead Island Riptide Zombie Bait controversy 'was blown out of proportion' – Deep Silver

Deep Silver creative director Guido Eickmeyer believes that the controversy surrounding Dead Island Riptide's vulgar Zombie Bait Edition was "blown out of proportion", describing the bloodied female sculpture as nothing more than a "fun idea". (Dead Island Riptide, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I think releasing a cheap still glitch filled mess of a game more controversial.

I must agree on that

Totally agree. This game ran like ps3 skyrim coming down off a meth bender.

"Dead Island is not a super-serious world,"

Well, you could have fooled me. The game, not to mention the trailers, seem pretty rooted in the no-fun-allowed tone, which was part of why this threw me off so badly. Sounds like the creatives behind it don't have a common vision, as if I needed more reason to believe Deep Silver's games should just be avoided.

it was a stupid idea in the first place

Something was certainly blown up.

A fun idea that should have stayed at the office. It certainly did not make the game any better. Gotta love marketing.

" was not meant to be controversial. It was just us nerds doing something we always wanted to do."
Your way of getting back at all the beauties that turned you down?!?!
Cover artwork is one thing, or even a poster. I think this was a bit much.

I haven't played the game in a couple of months and was shocked I loaded the game a few days ago and there wasn't an update.

I enjoyed playing through the game but there were quite a few Achievement breaking bugs as well as regular game play bugs.

You guys are going to have a hard time getting me to support your product if you don't support your products.

that's why you always get the pc version

pc version is awesome, picked it up for $20, love it

From the DS bundle? Also, I'm probably not going to bother picking it up until I finish maybe Dead Island, or when the price is down to 5 bucks. It seems like a fun game, but for people who play with friends or like collecting loot; I for am not that type of person.
