Deep Silver has made several interesting comments regarding the sales of their recently-released open-world action role-playing multiplatform title, Dead Island.
Congrats DS, I'll be picking up 2 copies so I can play some co-op tomorrow with my son. From what I hear, I'll enjoy it.
Hot damn, father and son zombie killing. Keep up the good work.
I'm jealous..... Guess I should knock my fiance up :|
Obviously the best reason to ;)
the disagree came from your fiance
This game sucks after you leave the beach in act 1. & so many game breaking glitches and bugs.
Dad? You're buying me Dead Island?
im glad this game is being as successful as it deserves to be.
I am glad aswell. I am happy to see that they are supporting their new game. Hopefully they get all the issues worked out because I am really enjoying the game.
Got to love the small developers having success.
Agreed, Techland nailed the zombie atmosphere nicely. With a successful new ip, can't wait to see what they do with a sequel.
Yeah, it's got a great addictive quality to it. Hopefully the sequel is a little more polished, and has a day/night cycle.
Actually Act II has day to night weather cycling.
Great to see a new IP selling out in stores, only means that its selling a lot and a lot of people want to play it. No store around here has it anymore, all sold out.
Great, now fix the bugged to all hell PC version.
It has been fixed. Re-install the game and all glitches will be gone. That's what I did and it worked. I also had no issues loading my save file.
For most people it was fine before the patch and now it sucks. playing with a keyboard now gives a stutter. Fix: Play with a controller. Does that sound like a PC game? Co op crashes. Servers down. their is a huge list of problems on the steam forums.
Also - it is still the dev. version - the "real" version is to be released today...
Keyboard stuttering.... Here's a fix http://forums.steampowered.... (top post, look for the "update") It's happening because of 'repeat keystrokes'.
I'll be picking it up soon!
What, you are going to a SHOP to buy a copy, good man
Got mine day one and telling all my friend to pick this game up, im enjoying it non stop.
I'll be picking this up tomorrow. I didn't know there was 4 player co-op. Definite plus, and i predict good times in the future.
Im glad for them. We need more new IPs. Speaking of IPs are the still working in there other game Ride to Hell?
God I wish I could see the faces on all the Dead Island haters. Dead Island FTW!!!!!
I couldnt agree more.
You can't see my face but I'll tell you I'm confused as hell. Not because it's selling well. It's a cool premise and it involves killing zombies. I'm confused that it's getting such high scores and that people seem to like it. It's got so many technical problems. I wasted several hours of gametime today because the game's autosave didn't work, even though it said "game saved" on the screen as I started and finished quests. Another thing that happened to me today is that I made my first "shock" weapon out of a good quality machete... used it once... and it vanished without a trace. I've lost several weapons that way but that one really made me mad. Dead Island is Borderlands with zombies, which shouldn't be a bad thing, but Borderlands is a much better game. This needed quite a bit more work before release.
i dont understand how your one game saves bug that you have makes the game have so many technical problems. the only issue i ran into with this game is the wrong copy they put out on steam. haven't had any bugs. granted the respawns need to get fixed. other than that. this game is great. are you on the console or something?
I don't hate it, I just think it's a completely dull premise for a game due to zombies being as overused as Nazis in games. It's not even reviewing that well. So, well done on the sales, but Homefront also sold really well.
To be fair, Homefront was a steaming pile of crap. I mean, reeeeeally bad. If DI was SP only (no coop) it would not be doing nearly as well. The coop with friends is a total blast.
Explains why I'm not getting mine until next week. Can't wait!
To all the cry babies saying they dont understand why this game is getting such good reviews because of a few bugs? Wow, whats wrong with you people? All games these days have a bug or 2. Patch is already on its way, stop your crying! Maybe its just your PS3, and you should take better care of it. I havent come across any bugs and ive been playing it since last weekend. Game is awesome and if your gonna give it a low score for a couple minor bugs, then you got problems. Game is awesome, it deserves all the praise it has been getting and im glad to see all the rave reviews. Finally, something a little different, that is not just another world war fps with dull grey graphics. I chose this over Resistance3 for the simple fact, im just so god damn tired of these recycled, overrated fps war games. Congrats to you guys at Deep Silver, you did something different and it worked! Great game, with scenery thats nice to look at for a change, and gameplay that is addicting and fun! Hats off to you guys!
I agree, literally did the same. Planned on getting R3, then was unimpressed with the beta and as you said a general over saturated FPS market. Dead Island with its 30+ hr co-op story ( granted split screen would have been much appreciated). I realize they are small in scope so more copies the better, but this game has really hit the spot with a few buddies joining in. Solid title.
@madmax, your tone would be different, if you were not able to fucking play the game.
Go back to your repetitive Battlefield and stop trolling Dead Island posts. Its haters like you that im talking about, so leave people alone that are enjoying this incredible game. You dont have nor have even played it, so shut your mouth!
@ Mad Max, I already beat Dead Island. I just know the pain that people have 'coz I had same problem with FC2 when it came out. I couldn't even play it at all for a while. Now you shut the fuck up and go suck developer's dick. when people buy product, they expect it to work. people like you is the reason why game is sub standard these days.
Good, now fix the ps3 version it keeps skipping, and audio pops.
Am I the only one sick of killing zombies for fun crap? I want a serious zombie game :/.
This is a serious zombie game.
Just got this game yesterday, had to cut my playtime short due to school. Good thing today is Friday! :D
This makes dead rising look like horse manure. I'm very happy that smaller studios make a good game that does well
This game is 100% awesome. It perfectly balances difficulty by making sure you're never too strong. As you level up you find stronger weapons which are more costly to repair so your always looking for cash to make sure you can fight. Your life doesn't auto regen so your looking for energy drinks as well. All while tring to fend off zombies coming at you from every direction so you never truly feel safe. its such a perfect formula. They really made an awesome game that I 100% recommend!!!
cash was never problem for me.
I'm going to say it, this is the resident evil game for this gen. it actually feels like a survival horror game rather than whatever the hell RE 5 was. Sure, it has a few glitches but despite them it's an awesome game. this is an 8/10 game for me.
