DEAD ISLAND

I love zombies. I really do. I don’t know why. Cos I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t survive the apocalypse. I’ve got no upper body strength. So I enjoy living vicariously through video games, i.e Dead Island. I really enjoyed Dead Island to begin with. It was scary, has a great range of weapons and I liked the freedom and enjoyed the missions. Then after encountering so many bugs, and doing the same thing over and over again, I got bored.

There’s four different areas in Dead Island to explore; the beach, the town, the jungle and the prison. Then within each of these areas are smaller areas like the police station or the resort. And then you get a number of side quests and story quests dotted about the world to complete in order to progress. These drag on. There’s only so many times I can be asked to find you canned food or alcohol. If you’re so desperate to find food, go out and find some yourselves!! I have an island to escape! An infected island! I’m sure there were some good side/story quests, I just can’t remember them for all boring, foraging quests I had to do! None of these I completed in co-op either. I turned that off as soon as I realised people could jump straight into your game and steal your kills and money! I’m sure the co-op is really good! Twitter seems to say some nice things. But I like to be warned in advance when someone joins my game! I’m planning a quick, second play-through for achievement sweeping.. maybe I’ll allow people to join my game then? Maybe.

MY UPCOMING WISHLIST

So after spending a few days in the hospital I’ve had plenty of time to think about games. Flicking through my magazine a few games caught my eye. Obviously it’s just been E3, which was truly fantastic, so there are a fair few games I’m looking forward to. The majority of games are ones which I’ve played the sequel to and enjoyed them alot! These are the ones which are on my “probably-will-maybe-definitely-will-buy” list. The ones I really really want.. but are always reluctant to buy. Don’t ask me why.. even working at GAME I’m reluctant to spend too much money. Anyways, the best part about all of these games are their release dates! Well that could be considered a con too.. but they’re all mostly out in November! That’s only five months of having to wait!
