Dead Island.

Post by Vigil on Wed Feb 16, 2011 3:34 pm

One of those games where the trailer says all you'd ever need to say.

Saw it on Buckley's Twitter Feed.

My reaction: "Another Zombie game?"

Remember a while back when I said I hated seeing women die in movies?

Same thing goes for children...and double for children who are also girls.

Now, what's the first thing we see in this trailer?

Women and children die, it happens.



By my hand sometimes.

Sure I agree it's done for shock value, as nobody likes to see children dying in media as it makes them uncomfortable, but if it's done with a bit of tact and care, to make us feel sympathy for the child and what happened to her, the trailer has succeeded at making you have an emotional investment in the procedings for better or worse.

As for the game itself, one of the first things I said this year was please no more zombie games, as 2010 had a ton of zombie-related releases, and from what I've read about this game so far, it's a first person slasher/RPG where the characteruses melee weapons and explores the Island, so kind of a mix of L4D and Dead Rising. I might get it, but it would have to be something special.

Real World damage to the zombies last I heard.



Hit a zombie on the right side with a bat, their rib cage breaks, they start limping while holding onto the rib or something like that.

That was my primary example of doing it right.

She was killed as a character, not just as a woman.

That was a very well done trailer.
However, I don't have much faith in the game itself, since its probably just going to be another zombie game

Sexism is an abstraction used by feminists to gain (sexist) sympathy. It's as meaningless an insult as accusing someone of being racist.

In regard to the game, I have yet to see a truly serious zombie game. (I suppose you could say L4D was serious, but it wasn't story or even character driven, and mostly just focused on the gameplay) The trailer was nice, it sparked a hint of emotion in me which is, as we all know, quite an achievement. I don't know anything about it I guess, I'll withhold my interest until I know details.

I'd like to see gameplay though... I can't trust trailers.

Oh, that trailer was really good.
Makes me think this will be a story driven zombie game. =O

After reading Elabs link...

Agreed, this year is going to be a major drain on my money with so many great games coming out.
