it's probably got a stun gun attached to it.  they've said you can combine items like Dead Rising, and that sounds like something DR would do.

Watched the gameplay and liking what I saw. Although it's a little annoying at how they're really not sure of how they want to portray their zombie apocalypse. First there's the trailer, which really doesn't reflect on the game. Then there's the setting and characters, which is a really weird, and somewhat bad racial stereotyped. Then things like crappy one liners

Also confirmed is 4 player co-op on the mostly open world island. You can go through the whole story campaign in co-op. That's enough to make be buy the game.

I thought it looked decent enough.    of course that's running on a 360 so the PC version may have more bells & whistles.

I'm likely to purchase; very likely. I have to admit though that the graphics are a little dated; that's irrelevant to me though if I have a good time. And I think I will!

Yeah, the dated graphics bothered me a bit but the potential for storytelling and free forum exploration look to be there as well as trying to survive. I wonder if they will go the full route and have you have to find food to eat and get sleep every 12 or so hours only to get woke up from a zombie attack. I'll have my eye out for the PC version but not sold just yet.

I really hope - but do not expect - they will go the "full route" and have something like a "you must eat, find shelter, sleep" mechanic (and not just in I'm running past some ammo/medkit and grab it). I'd be really surprised as I think the trend is not to those "I want to experience a zombie outbreak, barricade myself, forage for food/supplies" gamers but for people who like shooting stuff. But even if they don't, I'm no fanatic.

Still, if somebody did create a zombie apocalypse - and there have been attempts - that has a sort of RPG, Builder, turn-based (yeah, I said it) feel to it, I'd grab my shotgun and some reloads and be there.

After watching the last trailer, I'm going to cancel my pre-order on Steam (which SHOULD be allowed, according to their refund policy). I was hoping of something more like Just Cause 2/GTA mixed with Oblivion, only... you know... killing zombies. What I see is closer to Left4Dead, and I have both of those and haven't finished them. Also, the Call of Juarez Cartel buzz has me spooked. For the price of admission, I think I'll wait for reviews.

Combat may be closer to L4D, but the gameplay is open world with quests and more. Not just about surviving from one point to another.

I wonder if we'll have to go kill rats?  icon_razz I'll be eager to hear how it is, though I think I'll wait on the sidelines for now. I hope it's fun.

I guess what I'm curious about is it if has the randomization and scaling difficulty that kept L4D/L4D2 games entertaining and unpredictable even after a few playthroughs.

I've only just heard about this green man gaming thing. They send you steam codes? I looked at their site briefly and it mentions a capsule (steamlike software?) and being able to return games? Is there a thread just for them? I'll go look.

this is the first game I bougth off of them, but I think you have to use the Capsule for non-Steamworks games; it's just their version of the Steam client.  DI is a Steamworks game though, so it's activated on Steam and you can download the game off of Valve's servers. all I need from them is the key for the game.

been looking for some more co-op info, and found this:

Quote
Its seamless co-operative multiplayer experience

 Those of you who have been drawing similarities between Dead Island and Left 4 Dead should stop making that list right after you reach “4-player co-op”. Even though both games feature zombies and the aforementioned co-operative gameplay, Dead Island seems geared more towards atmosphere and immersion rather than the pick-up-and-play style of Valve’s L4D series.

Techland has boasted that it will feature a cool drop in/drop out system, where players will be able to enter and exit their friends playing sessions and interact with their world without necessarily interacting with their friends directly. This adds to the realism that separates it from other zombie games on the market, and will allow each and every gamer to have a unique playing experience depending on who they decide to bring along with them for the ride.

if that's true then people won't need to be bunched up, and could in fact split up.  MP could be very epic in this game.  I think Blackjack needs to get it  icon_twisted
