Dead Island was a fucking terrible experience and myself and the 3 people I played coop with wanted a full refund after finishing the garbage ass game.

The fact that it was allowed to have a Game of the Year edition, because ONE online review site gave it game of the year, is appalling to me. They were allowed to release it right before christmas too so parents would see "Game of the Year" on the box and go "oh my kids like zombies maybe they'll like this" and sell more copies to unsuspecting victims.

The first game was the ONLY GAME I have actually felt I wasted 50 bucks on. Normally I love Zombie games, but the story was horrible, the combat was horrible, the animations were horrible, and it was just all in all awful.

How it made enough money to warrant a sequel is beyond me.

uh...what!? Ok, the game sucked so bad, you and 3 others FINISHED IT in co-op mode? On top of that, you paid 50! bucks for it? Let me guess, console. The game was like $30.00.

ooooh...look at steamprices, it RETAILED for 49.99 on opening day. I am pretty sure I got a preorder for a lot less than that, or I bought a 4 pack witih friends. I rarely...RARELY pay full price retail - that is just being a bad consumer.

/edit: Yup, checking steam, 4 pack with Verno and others. Game is a hoot. I have it for both xbox and pc. Buddy brings his xbox over and we sit side by side on 40 inch LCDs playing. Other than Saints Row 3, I haven't had that much fun with co-op in a hellaofalongtime.

Agree Wallshadows. While it isn't my thing, I can see fans of all things zombie wanting one of these for their collection. But of course the "habitually offended by everything" crowd can never let a good self-important nobility crusade go to waste, so you can't have one! Never mind that movie studio effects artists have things 10 times as garish and evocative all over their studio; we are going to pick on game makers because they are extra bad! Or something.

While we're at it, lets just censor Halloween costumes and decorations to ensure nobody gets their feelings hurt.

I'm not sure what I am more upset over. The fact that I likely won't ever get to own this or all the hypersensitive people who come out of the woodwork to say how butthurt they are.

Like everything else "offensive" in this world, it's only an issue because people make it one. I'm pretty sure the starving, abused, and impoverished of the world would kill for the luxury of spending more than two seconds worrying about how "wrong" this piece of art is. First world problems at its finest...

So we can dismiss everything as FWP now?

"So, they want to ban video games due to school shootings. Shut up, everyone, just accept it and kiss your games goodbye. Right now someone starving to death in Africa just wishes his biggest concern was the end of video games!"

I don't find it particularly appealing, but just like the Hitman uproar last spring I do wonder how much of the outrage over it is manufactured and how much is genuine. It's just a tacky zombie torso thing to go with a B-moviesque zombie game, it's not an art piece designed to draw contrast between feminism in video gaming and domestic violence or whatever BS a lot of the commentators are trying to come up with.

Whoosh!

Dead Island Riptide's bloody torso statue sparks anger, confusion (Updated).

Fucking nansies. Wish it was released here - I would get one in a heartbeat. I love off the wall shit like that.
