Re: Dead Island

Good trailer and good game are two separate things, especially since it's almost four years since the game has been announced.

(probably) first gameplay:

looks nice (I'm getting a Far Cry 2 vibe here which was great) and it could be the first Techland game I'll like (both Call of Juarez games rather sucked)

Was that a penis?

(also, the second Call of Juarez is an awesome game, the first one was pulled down by the stealth levels).

First impressions after playing for about half an hour - melee combat is much better than in Dead Rising 2. The worst part of the game is the horrible interface/inventory management.

Re: Dead Island

After reading the terrible, terrible bugs it has, I'm actually going to skip it. It seems to be a very bad console port and I don't want to spend 40€ on crap like this, Rage is out soon anyways.

Re: Dead Island

Its already got an update out, which supposedly fixes most of the initial issues, but users who have installed it have mentioned more issues, does the developer know what a QA department is? So I'm skipping it too sad

As for Rage, Ive actually pre-bought it on steam, which is rare for me neutral

Re: Dead Island

Update works fine on my PC. AFAIK some people have problems with their saves (I started the game from the beginning to avoid them) and some graphical issues (no problems on my GTX 275). The game has some minor bugs (like a chest that's tied to a column or shitty rubber ball physics), but nothing major.

Re: Dead Island

Wasn't this game announced like 4 years ago or something?

Re: Dead Island

I think it is good when developers can take their time with a game so they can release the game they want to release and doesnt need to skip things or rush things cause the company who distribute the game is just after some quick money and doesnt care if the game is done as long as it will get some sells.

I think the idea behind dead island is ground breaking. I especially like the happy sunshine theme at the beginning. Later in the game the storm takes over and it feels like it becomes like any other game though.

I dont really see the point of trying to change the genre only to merge it into a stereotypical genre game. It is an amazing game though.

Re: Dead Island

bugs or not (I have yet to see any) this is a really fun game! I usually find side missions in games tedious but I'm loving all missions in this game. Enough writing I gotta get back to my Machete  big_smile

Atleast they won't release a developer seed on Steam...

LOL ! Word. Where the fuck is HL2: Episode 3 ? Half-Life 3 should have been out by now. I think they forgot when they started making TF2 hats.

Re: Dead Island

I like the game, granted Im in NA so i got the awesome unfinished Dev version...and by awesome i mean glitchy and buggy as all hell...but I had fun with it.  I did have two issues though, the fact if you had more than one monitors the game wouldnt work in the foreground, and i was unable to get back up the stairs after going down them.  But other than those two issues I had lots of fun kicking and stabbing and hitting zombies.

Re: Dead Island

Its after Friday and the game still is buggy, i was disconnecting while playing co-op every 2 mins after the first few hours.  sad  The inventory still sucks ass, it still equips alcohol whenever it wants to, still doesnt use the mouse-wheel to switch weapons...and a few other issues.  sad

Re: Dead Island

It's a major fuckup that Techland is probably considering to let it fly. Only the PC version seems to have this amount of unhappy faces and most of the time when that happens, they release DLC for consoles and let the PC version die.

Re: Dead Island

I still have fun playing the game...i finally didnt get disconnected every few mins and was able to play with a buddy for like 5 hours.

Its a fun game, but the bugs (such has making me lose one of my weapons because I threw it at a glitched mob) irk me hardcore!!!

Re: Dead Island

The game is simply amazing. Zombie massacre never gets old (especially with self-made melee weapons and with vehicles smile), side quests aren't just there to make the game longer (finding the teddy bear was fun  lol) and the island is very very beautiful (my favorite location would be the ligthouse). I still hate the interface (who thought that I would willingly want to hold alcohol in my hand if I accidently hold the F key??) and the weapon management system is not too realistic (why do I have to use money to repair guns since no one else is operating the workbenches??).

Re: Dead Island

Yeah you'd think scrap metal and spare parts would be enough to fix a weapon but apparently the island is full of those magic pay-per-fix benches... Money is useless on a zombie-infested island anyways.

I would have loved to play the game if it wasn't such a blatant console port with crappy controls, console menu's and riddled with bugs.
