Hey look, another Dead Island game. I can't believe how many games this series already has in it...Dead Island 1/2, Riptide, the MOBA, and now this. That's 5 games in three years! For a series that is by no means anything amazing.

I though DI was great so this is great news.  The MOBA is okay, but I think most MOBAs suck anyways so this isn't much different.

 

DI2 is also being developed by the studio that did Spec Ops, whereas the original was developed by Techland who are working on Dying Light, so that might give you dumbasses who didn't like the game hope for something different.

ftr, i like dead island 1 (never played riptide or the moba). i just don't think the IP itself is one that I would expect to be good enough to rationalize 5 games in 3 years.

It's islands full of zombies.  I'm pretty sure that's enough to rationalize infinite games.  And they are going into very different genres with two of the games so give them credit for not just changing a few character models and putting out the same thing year after year.

For what it's worth, as someone who likes MOBAs, I think the Dead Island MOBA is fuckin terrible.

 

It's not even a MOBA, there's like control points and you just wavebase against some AI for a bit. There might have actually been some PVP in that, but I didn't play long enough to check.

 

I did think the original DI was alright and DL looks cool.

I think MOBAs suck in general so I'm not really a good person to judge them.  I had more fun in Epidemic than the few times I've tried to force myself to play DOTA.

Derpademic is a very casual MOBA (even has a cooperative mode).  Unlike DOTA, though, (that makes its money from aesthetic items); Derpademic is essentially pay-2-win with a massive grind for weapons and items if you don't.

What's up with NinjaSquirrel's very in-depth and thought provoking reviews?

 

I thought reviewing games on Steam was something you were only supposed to do when you are drunk.

 

Is he drunk?

 

They are supposed to be something you only do if you are a fanboi and write gushing praise. Otherwise you get downvoted all to hell.

They should have called it Dead Island Solitaire.  In whenever it gets bundled (which it will given the pub).

Post summer sale, I'm filled with regret
My library grew several octets
Though Goat Simulator is great
We can't procreate
And the cards won't quite free me from debt

I didn't notice anyone post this, but I haven't been around here long. 

http://woobox.com/otj8nn (already dead)
Anyway, it's a crappy Steam game (Final Slam 2) for free.

Edit: It does have cards, so... there's that.

It just worked for me, well, at least I was able to get a key. I'm at work so can't activate the key to make sure it's valid, but the website itself worked.

 

Shit, contest's over. We have a winner, everyone go home.

Nobody should run uncontested, even if they can't be beat.

On my roommate's laptop I did see

A screen of Drunken Robot Pornography

Moaned with all his might,

And his Woodle Tree sprayed all over me

His favorite game was made by square enix

He loved playing tomb raider
And called his wiener "rise of the Phoenix"

The Devil May Cry one was good but in an effort to not surrender:

It's clear Anna still needs her toy,
as you're packing no Super Meat, Boy.
You should Fear for your wife,
Cause whats best in her life,
Is in fact Electronic Super Joy.

I've been waiting for a heavy-handed deconstruction of the zombie shooter genre so this is great news.  Maybe I'll find out that I'm the real zombie in all this...  :-k

Oh wow, Fatshark is developing that new Dead Island game?  Going to be worse than usual -- Fatshark is a TERRIBLE developer.

 

Whoa whoa whoa whoa... Spec Derps devs are making Derp Island 2?  Comedy gold.  Aside from being 2deep4me, Spec Ops was utterly atrocious gameplay-wise.

Write me a Limerick.

I definitely should have had some coffee before trying this:

 

There once was a lad named Tim Tebow,
who played games in his spanking gazebo,
he got sick and died,
playing Ticket to Ride,
his only drug was a placebo!
 
One day while playing BioShock,
I suddenly heard a loud squawk,
It was a big bird,
who called me a nerd,
and then he flew away with my cock!
 
I just wanted to play The Witcher,
and not make Valve any richer,
Gaben came over,
to be my gay lover,
he said, "You catch, I'm the Pitcher!"
 
I searched the Steam sale for glitches,
to save some of my hard earned riches,
but I couldn't find any
good games for a penny,
Fuck that and Fuck you, you're all bitches!

I'm not buying it since I don't deal with Early Access games, but the new one over at IndieGameStand looks pretty interesting.

It's PWYW (as long as you want to pay over $1 for steam key).

Yep if you want the DRM-free version only you need to pay $0.25 minumum if I remember correctly.

Thanks. I like to keep it cool and play it subtle. That's how I roll.

That game is like 8% done after 3 years. You trust them to post updates to IGS? And that's if they ever finish it.

Oh.. I should venture out of this and the Amazon thread a bit more than I do I suppose - I never even knew CAG had an indiegamestand thread.

I had figured the cards might make up the $1 purchase price to those who wanted to mess with an EA game but if it doesn't even really have cards then it's a far less compelling deal.

And that development cycle.. sheesh...that's just sad.
