Today Deep Silver has released some images of one of the playable characters of Dead Island: Sam B. You can find his background story below.
A one-hit-wonder rap star of fading fame, Sam B was booked by the Royal Palms Resort Hotel to perform his well known song "Who do You Voodoo?" at a high profile hotel party. He gladly took the chance to play this gig.
Once strong, self-confident and proud, Sam B has had a troubled past and a history of drug and alcohol abuse, as his private life became caught in a haze of fake friends and bad advisors.
Trying to pick up the pieces and earn some extra cash, he suddenly finds himself surrounded by a whole lot of different problems...
What bothers me most is it truly is creating gambling habits in small kids that also play these games (4 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: exactly, it’s nothing short of predatory. It’s literally using reasearch about the chemical reactions of the human brain to get people to spend more money than they want to (4 Hours ago)
They want you spending hundreds amassing a room full of dollar store garbage while you search out a t-shirt that actually looks like it wasnt designed by a monkey, (4 Hours ago)
I don't like lootcrate/nerd block for the same reasons. Yes you MIGHT get something cool, but that glimmer of hope is exactly what those companies are exploiting. (4 Hours ago)
But obviously thats just a single pay ent pirchase. Pubs want you spending weekly unlocking content you might not not even want or need. (4 Hours ago)
@Nietzsche: i agree. There os no justifiable reason to have the randomised element of loot boxes. The stuff should just be avalible in a store and you pay for what you want. (4 Hours ago)
but I do think overwatch does it in a much less harmful way than most others (6 Hours ago)
