If it's crap ... We'll tell you
The follow up to the four person co-op zombie game, Dead Island, is coming out next month. Despite the fact that the previous iteration came out less than two years ago. The new game is still focused on the survivors from the first game, who had thought they had escaped the island only to be arrested and then crashed on a boat back on the island. Only this time to fight zombies as well as military personal in a fight for time and survival as they attempt to escape the island before the government nukes it to cover up its' mistake. As Jason Murphy would say, "Video game video game, video game video game. Video game." Dead Island left me feeling cold and uninterested, but the fans of the series are clearly abundunt enough to warrant a sequel. Let us hope this is a full game and not just some piece of DLC stretched to a full retail version, yet the short development time worries me.
Dead Island: Riptide will be out on April 23, 2013 for 360, PS3, and PC.
