New Dead Island Screenshots Are A Tease

HBG Writes: "While we had a chance to check out Dead Island in action behind closed doors, the rest of the world sadly has not. However, one thing gamers keep getting is awesome Dead Island screenshots. While these shots show off nothing too substantial, they are enough to tease you and hold you over until the next bunch are released."

Hell yeah, I am hearing great things about this game from those who have played it too!

Queefy_B4871d ago

I hope its not a lfd clone and an actual horror game.

MoeThirteen4871d ago

Dang, those zombies look pretty good, or bad -- you know what I mean!

Fallouts4871d ago

im surprised they still havnt shown gameplay, little nervous about that.. been hearing about this game forever now but at least it seems like its not going back under a rock.

Kreyg4871d ago

Saw it at GDC. It looks REALLY good.

Fallouts4871d ago

oh so they are showing game play, and it looks good? thats great.. i wanted this game since i first heard about it a few years back when it was supposed to be exclusive for the 360 but it looks like they dropped the ball on that, i just wonder about ms sometimes....

Dead Island 2 devs believe a Dead Island remake would be a “mistake”

We might be in the age of remasters, but it doesn't look like the Dead Island 2 devs believe remaking the original game is the right move for the series.

but remakes require far less effort for these companies and they can still charge $70 for them!

Feel like everyone makes fun of Skyrim re-releasing like 18 times yet applaud these remasters elsewhere. Would much prefer NEW games

Making sequels really is the way to go. Otherwise we'll be stuck playing only the first entry, forever!!!

Dead Island's 2011 reveal is still the best game trailer of all time

Josiah Motley of KnowTechie writes: "I love video game trailers. While I don’t believe they are an integral part of a game’s success (especially these days), there’s something about a well-produced trailer that really just reminds me why I like video games."

Also the most misleading of all time

SDuck908d ago

How so? Because it focused on a family that you see dying? (innocent question, haven't gotten a chance to play any Dead Island game yet)

aconnellan908d ago

More the tone of it - the tone of the trailer suggested something personal and dramatic, but the game was very much reminiscent of Left 4 Dead in that you were just there to kill zombies and nothing more

Ashby_JC908d ago

You play as a singular character there is no family involved at all in the game. Still a stand out trailer that I remember clearly from years ago.

Fntastic908d ago (Edited 908d ago )

Did you not like the game?

I remember going in expecting a L4D style of game, but the excessive camera swaying honestly made me feel ill, and it's rare for a game to do that to me, still don't understand why the need for anything other than maybe a subtle slight camera movement when doing melee attacks etc. Other than that i didn't really find the game that good. In all honesty i had more enjoyment out of DNF, and i know many people crap on that game.

BioShockGX907d ago

I still remember this misleading controversy

RickRoland908d ago

It’s the music. It’s perfect. I agree with this for sure, it is well choreographed….unfortunately the game didn’t live up to the trailer.

brewin907d ago

Maybe not, but it was still a good game. I liked how they expanded things with Dying Light, but Dead Island was a great first attempt! I really liked all the Easter eggs and homages to other horror franchises sprinkled throughout. Sure it was a little cheesy and over there top, but it was a good happy medium between Far Cry and Fallout with zombies.

I'm gonna heavily disagree with that.

CrimsonWing69908d ago

Have you ever seen any of the MGS 3 or MGS 4 trailers? Those blow this out of the water for me.

TricksterArrow908d ago

They require prior knowledge of the franchise, tho. You show this trailer to anyone, and I mean ANYONE, and they can understand what's going on and relate to the family dynamic almost immediately. No need to know who is Snake, or Fox Hound, or Raiden, or Metal Gear...
