Anything with splitscreen is a huge plus in my book. Its only the sportgames that have a decent local multiplayer option.
If newer games have co-op its usually only online. SO annoying.

bit of a team fortress 2 vibe artistically. the kid reminds me of the kid in disney's "up", game looks a bit clunky, as do the animations. and at this point im really tired of the zombie theme almost as much as i'm tired of the modern warfare theme. i'll pass

Same observations as Kdizzle, but I think I'll give it a shot. If it's fun and well priced I'll buy it.

Still waiting for a proper zombie game, hopefully dead island is that with survival horror. Where biting means something, where there's resource management, where you actually give a damn about your allies. More like this.

undead lab's new open-world zombie game shows promise on the concept, but they still need to show it, for us to know more.

Hope the best for them. Wake me when there's gameplay footage.

Awful animations, half baked art style and trying too hard to be TF2, and L4D.

I love zombies but fucks sake... everything has them in now.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Maybe they'll use trophies incentivise it? "Brushed horse 2000 times - bronze trophy" "Wrapped up warm 5000 times - silver trophy" (15 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog if it doesn't make much difference it's great from my perspective, so that would be ideal. But its going to make it hard to convince people to do it if the rewards aren't worth the tedium of it. (17 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think they kind of need to make the negatives of not doing it impactful out of necessity otherwise it undermined the entire thing. (20 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @AndreasZ94: I don't see any reason to incorporate the survival systems if they aren't impactful though. If you NOT eating or NOT drinking doesn't really make any difference, why include it at all? (21 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 After rdr2 i hope they start trying new ips again (40 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 If this game sucks im gonna be very sad. Loved the first one, I ve waited 8 years for a sequel and its been 5years sincethe last rockstar game.No in between games like la noir,mp3 so it better be good (45 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @KORNdog: Obviously it depends, even if its done well im sure some will still find it tedious. But like the camp stuff making it optional was the right move because this game will havea broad audience (55 minutes ago)
