Dead Island Definitive Collection became flesh. Deep Silver, the publisher of the series confirmed it few days before.
If the reveal trailer shows actual gameplay, gamers can count on significant graphical upgrade.
GG Deep Silver! This is truly a significant change. I never played Dead Island, so this looks like a nice chance.
It's pretty much what you can get on PC. I'm not seeing much deal in the port other than it looks like they are looking for some money to fund the next game.
Yeah I nevered played a dead Island game yet so I might buy this depending on whether or not it's 60fps since all my other remastered games I bought are 1080p @60fps, so going too 30fps would kinda Suck. Especially for an older game.
I can't play the video right now, and maybe it's just me, But by the pic, I actually like her face better in the old PS3 version.
I agree...if the PS3 one is to the left..her face looks more "human" and the one on the right looks like some sort of Android if that is the PS4 version, looks like a step backwards to me.
Ignore the pic. It is a huge improvement over the original ps3 version. Watch the video when you get the chance if this game interests you
That's a decent upgrade.
How a remaster should be done! Wonder if the BioShock Collection is going to have this kind of graphical overhaul.
I haven't heard about Bioshock Collection. Did 2K announced it already?
Having played Dead Island: Riptide, this looks like a great upgrade. I just hope they removed that horrible motion blur or give you an option to turn it off or reduce it. Doing 180s in that game made my character puke worse than a Left4Dead spitter after a bombass party.
Upgrade looks great, but for me Dead Island was pretty boring. Never played Riptide, though.
It was fun for me. Despite it's all flaws I really enjoyed it.
With Dying Light on the market, I don't see a place for this remasters.
I do. lol. Remember bud....someone didn't play this game. I think its a respectable remaster. They did a pretty good job on it.
I admit they did good job, but I think Dying Light is simply superior game, that's all.
lol I get you could like it more, but I don't see this as a either or type deal, ie someone can only have 1 or something. I like many games more then other titles, but still leave it open for others to decide as liking The Witcher doesn't mean i hate Dragon Age and Fallout, we can actually like all of them in different respects, I agree too that Dying Light is very much a superior game in regards to mechanics, merely that its hard to really say what superior really is to a concept that is subjective. Could we not say Witcher 3 is "superior" to Bravely Default? Scope, scale, length, graphics etc? Would that mean one wouldn't have fun with Bravely Default? Its sorta what I mean by it being subjective and not really having much real meaning to the end user. Who is gaming solely for just 1 zombie game?
I kind of agree as Dying Light is just a better Dead Island game.
The ps3 version didn't look good definitely the female model. The remastered looks way better and one reason why prefer remastered then a emulator or bc.
They seem to be having pretty good trackrecord with remasters. Metro Redux was excellent too.
Exactly. And both games also get a little upgrade.
Nice face lift.. A lot better than some that iv'e seen before... They really cleaned up the texture detail
Id prefer di 2 info
I totally forgot about this song lol. Who do you voodoo bitch. This looks very good, some work has certainly been put in. I am tempted to get it again despite the story falling flat after moving further into game
To use this song in opening was genius idea :)
Honestly it just looks like the PC version.
Nope. lol. The PC version won't just magically have better models. I'm not really sure why folks have this strange myth about PC gaming LOL! No. That isn't how that works bud. Putting a 4 way SLI with a 980 GTX won't make HL1 look like HL2. Its just now how it works.
I don't know how to respond to that. Do you seriously think I thought that was how it worked? Are you that arrogant to not consider that the budget console version does not look the same as the PC version? The console would have scaled back graphical tools, lower resolution textures, and lower poly count models. I completed Dead Island on 360 the week it came out. Played it again on GwG. Played it on PC when it appeared on Humble Bundle. They do not look the same, I did the side by side comparison for myself. The only thing that looks like they've changed is from the PC version is the lighting system. So thanks for being so condescending. It really helped you prove your humourous point.
thats nice bud. Its not going to magically again have better models compared to the team actually remastering it. A team right now could remaster Mass Effect 1 and make new models...ie you could have not played it on PC with such fidelity if the models didn't exist on that version compared to them being redone. Sooooooo yea. lol
I'm pretty sure that PC version didn't looked a lot better than this. Of course, PC had less technical issues but it looked worse than this remaster.
It definitely looked better. The real take away from this is the redone lighting system. That is only thing that stands out as new.
Yet another remastered game (I'm not surprised) this is getting old they keep remastering these games and for what? For me its like I've already beaten the game why would I want to do the same thing again? Oh because it has better graphics give me a break if this keeps happening Microsoft and Sony are going to be pretty screwed when the NX launches Nintendo has more games they make that they can keep putting out its like Microsoft and Sony have run out of ideas for making games this rehashing games is a bunch of crap
These arent for you.Theyre for people who never got tje chance to play them last time.Yea im Sure MS&Sony are scared of the NX launch just like it happenes with fhe Wii u...oh wait lol. Also learn the difference between 1st party and 3rd party remaster(which they have no control over).
Its true that they might be for people who never got THE <- it's THE not tje chance to play but its also aimed at people that go out and say omg it has better graphics let me scoop it up and see how it looks and if you don't think that's the true you're wrong and as far as the NX goes I think it will be more powerful than the PS4 and X1 people say its 900p and as powerful as X1 but yet can run PS4 games how dumb is that if it was as powerful as X1 it should only be powerful enough to run X1 games since PS4 is more powerful than X1 theres a little fact for you there Pachter Jr :)
I suppose they are remastering them for fans of the game as well as new comers to the franchise. Or maybe for people like me who played the 1st game solo but did get the chance to play the 2nd installment and instead of having to purchase an older ps3 and the game seperately i can play both again withfresher graphics and a new addition of a 16 but game which should be s good laugh. Maybe this till I'll play with a friend and the experience will be obviously different with 2 or more players. There are lots of reasons really. Just because you are not looking forward to it or are not going to get only means you won't be invited to my squad for another playthrough. I don't believe developers are milking the games that are being remastered personally. I think they are giving gamers more options & its up to us if we purchase the games. Its not milking at all if no one buys it is it? I've replayed The Last Of Us & am still playing Borderlands 2 before getting into The Pre-Sequel. We are just being given choices in my opinion.
Hey here is an idea for you.....dont buy it. There you go! It certainly beats whiny and bitching about it.
I won't buy it and it would be WHINING not whiny and I'm not doing either I'm just stating a fact so..there you go ;)
PS3 has the worse version.
You're right. Screen tearing was real pain in the ass back then.
XBOX fans be like, "they both look the same, next"
Generic console fanboy be like "hey! give me attention!"
Just a harmless joke buddy. Relax
Better than most.
prettier upgrade for a garbage game GG
I enjoyed the 1st game. Nothing brilliant but enjoyed it.
i would buy this again if i can use my old save data on the ps3
decent series always presented itself like a emotional story driven game in trailers but it's far from a story driven game but some say the gameplay is fun so let's see
If the game will drop glitches with saving and graphical issues which were present in original then you will most likely enjoy it.
It was one trailer for the reveal, how did anyone with a rational thought process assume the game was meant to follow that after months and months of them actually revealing the game.
Nice facelift.. Looks like effort! Actual EFFORT! Not a simple HD port like a lot of stuff out there.. I dont play this game but i can see the difference is vast..
Dying light is a superior game in every way. techland also boosted the graphics of dying light with the new expansion and for the base game.
both......... I don't see why one can't just get both lol. I love 28 days later....doesn't mean I must hate The Night Of The Living Dead. Pretty sure gamers can like both as gaming isn't objective, its subjective.
Looks pretty and I only played through about 1/2 of the first one back when it came out. So I'd be interested in this as a rental on the definitive edition, or maybe even a buy on a decent sale. I'm a little leery on these remasters though, they've been a hit and miss on quality lately. So I'd wait to see the release and confirm it's solid without bugs or problems.
"Who do ya Voodoo bitch?" god I love that song!!! This looks good but I dunno if I'll get it because I already played it on PS3 and there is just so much coming out this year.
Its good to see that they have put some effort in to it, as i figured it'd be a major cash grab while they figured out what the hell to do with dead island 2. Im sure thats still whats going on but the effort. good going.
With so many games on my backlog, I don't have time for remasters.
Next gen Cinnamon
I really enjoyed this game, but the PS3 version of the game consistently hit 0fps along with some extremely bad screen tearing at all times. I no longer own the 360 or otherwise I'd own that version.
