Dead Island shots whip out the electric sword — Scrawl

Scrawl: "Deep Silver’s sent out a new set of screenshots for Techland’s Dead Island. In case you forgot, it’s that game with the beautiful trailer. There are no little girls in today’s screenshots, but there are electric swords! Because nobody likes to kill zombies with a regular sword, anymore."

Haha, that's awesome.
I am hoping for a little emotional encounters here and there though. Still, it's good to know the gameplay is solid and takes the best of zombie games and meshes it all together here.

I have a feeling that the actual game's story will be completely unrelated to the emotion and primal survival seen in the trailer...I mean, electric swords?...

I hope I'm wrong...I want a semi-emotional zombie survival experience.

Don't count on it. The epic trailer was probably just to attract the reactionary crowd, who were so quick to scream in excitement for a CGI trailer. N4G exploded with articles about how spectacular it was that we had a game coming with uh.....whatever their magic eight balls said. And now the people who are already chanting "best thing ever" are creating more hype for them.

This is why I don't let CGI trailers make me think one way or another about how a game might turn out.

I still can't believe how much hype this game received by just 1 single trailer haha

Was hoping for a serious game but how un-surprising it is just another lame zombie game. Sick of them now. When you get too much it gets way to old.
