Dead Island — Left 4 Dead 2 on Steroids

Today while I brows­ing the Inter­net for new and upcom­ing games I ran across this game which appears like it is going to give Left 4 Dead a run for it’s mon­ey.  If going by the trail­er, which was prob­a­bly one of the most heart break­ing trail­ers I have ever seen, is any indi­ca­tor on how the game is going to be… it will be amaz­ing. 
Zom­bie Games appear to be com­ing out of the wood work late­ly ever since the ever pop­u­lar Left 4 Dead series hit the mar­ket.  The Left 4 Dead series is by far the most pop­u­lar zom­bie apoc­a­lypse fran­chise fol­lowed by Dead Ris­ing.  This is the first ‘zom­bie’ title I’ve seen in some time to actu­al­ly look   like it might be worth the mon­ey it costs.  I’ve gone ahead and col­lect­ed some videos and pho­tos Dead Island.
Dead island is also sup­posed to include some RPG ele­ments along with a good sto­ry mode, machete throw­ing and I’m sure a pletho­ra of weapons.  It will be inter­est­ing to see what kind of enhance­ments they give it to com­pete with Left 4 Dead.
Prob­a­bly the most sad trail­er I have ever seen…

    Yea, that trail­er, and I’m sure it’s intend­ed to do this, real­ly hits me as a father. While the like­li­hood a zom­bie apoc­olypse is probal­by zero, it makes you think…
    Any­way, the game does look pret­ty awesome.…I need to play some LFD2 now.

    I was damn near in tears at the end of the video. I don’t know what the obses­sion is with insane­ly sad trail­ers now days but they keep work­ing at em.
    I was impressed though… it was done real­ly well.
