Dead Island Preview [Game Revolution]

"I saw more zombies dispatched in more ways than in five minutes of any other zombie game. Deep Silver accomplishes this by largely avoiding gunplay in its entirety.

Anyone know when the review embargo lifts? Not certain if this is worth a purchase or not.

"mmmmm brains.... brain soup, brain taco, brains-a-la-mode, stir-fried brains, brain pie, brains'n'creme, brain-filled donut, brains-over-easy, scrambled brain, poached brains, brains benedict..."

this is seriously the third zombie game article I've commented on today, but yeah, the fact that they've straight up ripped off Borderlands' loot system and skill trees makes me want to play it, cause borderlands rules, as noted by the quote above. But yeah, Legendary weapons are colored orange? That's not familiar at all...

I've been looking forward to Dead Island and Warhammer 40k: Space Marine for a long time. September is going to be an expensive gaming month for me.
