"The E3 of 2008 was pretty awesome, as a lot of great games were announced that year making the trade show jammed packed with quality titles. Gears of War 2, Borderlands, and Left 4 Dead are just some of the titles that were shown off that year, and one mysterious game that was announced by Ubisoft that had caught my eye. From what I could gather from the trailer, it looked to be a disaster survival game; huge earthquake hits a populated city, you survive as do others. It appeared that resources such as water would become something of a rare commodity, making survivors turn on each other. I was instantly interested in the premise of what the title could hold. With it recently being announced that I Am Alive is making the transition from retail to a downloadable title, it got me thinking; what does this mean for the disaster game?"
