Dead Island GOTY for $5 (steam) is the new daily.

 

I'm not a zombie fan, but I've heard good things about it from CAGs.  I'm considering picking it up for $4.

Yes,  Dead Island $4 (with compensation code) is very tempting, even though the reviews are kinda mixed.

Dead Island is a love it or hate it thing.

Personally, I've had fun with it. Playing it solo is the way to go (in my opinion) because the survival aspect is good. You're all alone creeping around, looting stuff (a la Fallout/Elder Scrolls style), and taking on zombies almost entirely through hand to hand combat. You've got to swap weapons out a lot too, because things break and get dull through use (you can repair things at workbenches, but you don't always have access to those), so it forces you to scavenge for new weapons that "get the job done" a lot of time.

Definitely worth $4.

Taking zombies out of the equation, if you like looting, crafting and melee combat, it's a very solid game IMO.  For me the gameplay is highly addictive.  I'm on the love it side of the fence, so take that into consideration.  The questing is fair, numerous standard side fetch or escort quests.  The story is cliche, but serviceable.  Some people say it's buggy, but I've not once experienced as bug like losing a dropped weapon, but as always ymmv.  If I could make one suggestion, if you do decide to pick it up, do not play Purna as your first character.  While an interesting character and skill set in her own right, she could be frustrating for a first time player due to here special abilities involving firearms, which are not readily available in the early stages of the game (she's a very strong end game character).  I liked all the characters, but my favorite is Sam B.  He is probably the easiest due to his higher health, but I find his random dialogue humorous and his blunt weapons preference is satisfying once you get used to the slower swing speed versus blades.  As soon as Riptide drops to my CAG price, I'll likely pick DI up and play through all the characters again.

I'll offer a counterpoint by saying that playing it in coop is much better than playing solo. Playing the game in coop with other people will help to alleviate some of the tedium of the repetitive fetch quests. Once you get to a certain point the survival aspect very much disappears as you become a powerhouse of zombie slaying.

 

And anyone who doesn't play as Sam B is doing it wrong.

Think of Dead Island GOTY as:

a melee-based Borderlands 1 (First-Person ARPG w/ lots of kill/fetch quests and tons of different loot);

mostly zombies are your enemies;

prepare to upgrade and repair weapons like crazy;

you're on a paradise island gone completely wrong (think like Far Cry);

and that the story and characters are on and off like a light-switch (like Borderlands 1).

 

I loved Dead Island.

Hmmm, so Precursors and Xenus 2 have seen price drops from 14.95 to 9.95:

 

http://www.gamersgat...PREC/precursors

 

http://www.gamersgat...us-2-white-gold

 

With 20% off they would be 8 each which is close to what they were on sale for last year.  I'll still wait to see if GG puts them on sale for the summer sale.  $4 for each or even $2 for each would be great. 


I have a handful of leftover July Madness Bundles - PM if interested

Ah, more of my level of tolerance for lather-rinse-repeat if the gameplay (or carrot) is good enough.  General rule with WoW.. if you have more than two geared toons... you're bored and just don't know it.

 

Edit: Like any marginally sane WoW player, I've been clean and sober a few times, but I keep my toons so I can descend down that spiral again.

Precursors is pretty good, I still have it installed. The translation is horrible, but the gameplay is actually solid.

Nice. Came out to $2.11 after the 20% discount. I bought it, but I might hold off on activating and see if anyone misses out on the deal or needs someone with a discount. I have the game on 360 and would probably rather play it on there anyway.

Well, I dunno. It's just a bad translation. Sometimes it's funny, while other times it's annoying. With bad translations, you really are missing a big point of the story, because it's just not coming across like it should, but at the same time, the game isn't really the model of an amazing story anyways.

I'd really only recommend it for $2.50 or so. I got it for $2 on Nuuvem.

Yeah... it would probably be best to just play it on the 360. The port is a mess, and while it's possible to get it working, the framerate is all over the place. Unless you have a really strong system, you're only going to get 50-60 FPS sometimes, and 30 FPS most of the time. SweetFX makes the game look pretty nice, so technically you could get it looking and playing better than on console, but like I said, it's still going to be a 30 FPS game for the majority of the experience.

...if you have a controller - check out Analog Mode (for combat).

It's kinda cool.

Eh, I wouldn't recommend playing the game with a mouse. It's got some port issues, and mouse-look is odd and choppy. Kinda makes it looks like your FPS is stuttering when it's not. The game plays flawlessly with a controller, and that was kinda how it was supposed to be played.

The RPG Watch forums for those old Deep Shadows are really helpful w/ fixing the hell out and modding those games:

You'll definitely want to read the forums and follow instructions on how to fix sound issues w/ games on that engine, too. GG is nice enough to give us those files, more or less - make sure you implement them correctly.

To counterpoint, I play with a KB&M and have no issues at all while on foot.  Driving, however, I definitely prefer a controller.  The analog combat with the controller is a different feel and I switch to it every now and then just to change things up, but my default setup is KB&M.

Agree with this, I had no issues with KB/M, game plays fine with it.
