I loved dying light and the expansion DLC. But I did play about 50% of it in co-op, which I think enhances it when dealing with the tougher zombies. But I enjoyed my solo sessions too. I wouldn’t go into it treating it like a shooter. There are guns, but they aren’t plentiful at first, and honestly the makeshift melee weapons are much more fun. The parkour takes a little getting used to, but it lets you get a tactical advantage on human enemies with guns, or let’s you get out of danger quickly. I’d say go for it, and if you don’t have anyone to co-op with I’m sure anyone on this thread including myself could join you. I need to dust off my skills to prep for dying light 2.


Thanks for the feedback. That helps. I tried watching some people stream it last night but most of them weren’t really playing. I might get it but I think anything else I buy will just sit in my backlog forever.

Well... have you ever played the original first Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide? Which I think are great fun "B" games, even more so co-op. It's totally convoluted, but even though "supposedly" a Dead Island 2 exists somewhere, the team that made the Dead Island 1 made Dying Light. So it's kind of the "real" Dead Island 2. There is definitely a FPS open world "Far Cry" vibe to the games.


I did play some of Dead Island but not enough to say it was good or bad. From what I played It felt clunky but the game itself felt like a solid starting ground for a more polished and streamlined game. Sorta how AC 1 was for AC 2 or ME 1 for ME2.

I got what I wanted from the summer sale except two I’m waiting to drop lower. I had never looked at Dying Light until browsing the sale but it looks promising. Just from the trailers, the gameplay(except the parkour) looks similar to Far Cry. I’m not much of a zombie game fan though State of Decay and Dead Rising are fun. Anyone have any input or recommendations about it? Thanks.

ME2 still disappoints me.  It's a good game, but something about it just does not click like 1 and 3 do with me.  The side stuff feels super pointless.  The few story missions and companion quests are great, but to me it just feels like filler.  A way to add more characters in the finale.  That said, the whole trilogy does feel dated all over.
 
People hate on Andromeda, but I loved it.  The combat was great and I like the character banter system used in it and Dragon Age 3.


ME2 is one of the greatest games ever...except the boss was “meh.” I thought all the side quests, especially with the companions were excellent and provided character development. 1 and 3 are good but I played 2 more multiple times than the combined multiple times I played the others two. Andromeda had so much potential and it wasn’t bad but the characters were so bland. The idea of a pathfinder was brilliant but I doubt they’ll go back to that after the reception the game got.

I sure hope this isn't related to the workers at Activision. Giving away a game in response to the allegations literally named 'The Devil' is NOT a good look.

From what I’ve read, I could have missed something, but the issue lays with Blizzard and not Activision. Not only is there the problems with Blizzard but they’ve also got the remaster of Diablo 2 coming out soon. If this was their decision, i don’t think it matters what game they gave out. It would still look like a total PR move regardless.


My two cents on Diablo being free: the way it's set up is like those free to play for a limited time only, so I'm doubtful if it's free to own forever.

I’d agree with you if it had been listed under Free Play Days and those usually pop up on Thursday or Friday, not a Sunday. If this came out like regular Free Play Days, i can’t imagine how it wouldn’t have been noticed sooner. I’d assume you’d get to keep it as long as you have Gold.
