Dead Island: Game Of The Year Edition Next Month?

Siliconera has word on the discovery of a British Board of Film Classification rating for a Dead Island: Game Of The Year Edition. This includes words this is to be released in the U.K. on June 30th, with the timeframe probably more of a revelation than plans for the inevitable GotY SKU.

Don't those game of the year editions nowadays mean the same thing as the gold edition with all the addons and what not?

Yep. I figured most realized that, just fun to react anyway. And I look everything up on Wikipedia. I wonder what game was the first to release a GotY without actually being awarded a GotY? They ruined it for all.

I enjoyed this game. It was essentially a cross between Borderlands and Left 4 Dead.

I'm not sure it needs a GOTY edition though, since the add-on content was apparently pretty mediocre.

Yeah, I 'may' pick this up when it hits $5 but not a penny more.

It's much better than $5.

edit: Err maybe you're talking specifically about the GOTY edition.. ?

Also, surprised at how detailed this Wiki article is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_of_the_year

No Dead Island of course

James Woods: Oh that's fun. That sounds like you had a fun time. Where would I fit in with the fun time, huh? Where does James Woods fit into the fun?

Game of what year? Dead Island is a boring consolized cookie-cutter zombie-craze cash in. It can suck my balls.

I was waiting for this to drop to 10 on Steam but I've pretty much lost interest now. They've missed their opportunity, after they kept repeating the same 15 promotion. They need to drop the price LOWER, not to the same level. It strikes me as absolutely bizarre that a game as excellent as Arkham City can drop in price so quickly and yet not Dead Island.

I just have so many great games to play already that I'm perfectly happy to skip titles that I'm on the fence about. Oh, and it was incredibly disappointing to see such an awesome trailer and realise that the game is just a hack and slash.

Arkham City is good? It looks exactly the same as Arkham Asylum to me, with a larger game world. I got bored with its predecessor, so I didn't pick up the sequel. What improvements have been made?

Game of the year? Trailer of the year that misrepresented the game, that's for sure!
