Bundle Stars has kicked off it's Bundle Fest 4. Included are some fun co-op titles, complete with party packages and complete editions. Co-op games include Gauntlet, Never Alone, Dead Island, and Dead Island: Riptide.
Many people seem to think that zombies are over-used in games these days, that somehow there are too many zombie games. Nonsense, I say! There are few things more satisfying than slicing off zombie limbs, kicking them to the ground, and smashing their skulls in with my hooker boots. What? A girl's gotta look hot while killing zombies. You got a problem with that?
The Humble Bundle has long been a way to not only support the developers and charities you love, but to also grab some quality games at a very affordable price. There has been some standout bundles in the past, and the current bundle is definitely one of the special ones. The Humble Deep Silver Bundle features a variety of games from the Deep Silver catalog, including a good amount of cooperative games in the list.
Dead Island: Riptide is on store shelves, and it's definitely more the same gameplay we saw in Dead Island. This can be a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on how you feel about the original game. Personally, I loved the first title, despite its flaws. What can I say? I really like chopping up zombies.
Dead Island: Riptide might not feel like a full sequel, but it's not quite DLC level either. The game sits inbetween in terms of quality and content, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. So what can you expect in terms of the game's co-op capabilities? Thankfully it's largely the same as the original game with a few minor enhancements like the ability to import your character.
A new Dead Island Riptide trailer, “Hope Is Drowning” emerged for everyone to sink their teeth into before the game’s April release. Personally, we can’t wait to dive into this new chapter of Deep Silver’s trilling zombie series, and this makes us even more impatient to play it.
Getting anything free is never a bad thing, especially when the zombie apocalypse is in full effect. In the off chance anyone chooses to go and preorder Dead Island Riptide, some bonus DLC packs will be included along with the purchase.
Last fall, at PAX Prime, we got a chance to see some new footage from Dead Island Riptide. This is the sequel to the totally swell co-op zombie grinder, Dead Island. We were presented with a new gameplay feature, the hub defense mission. These missions will focus on co-op teams defending an area from waves of zombies until some sort of timed objective is met.
Dead Island Riptide is still a little ways away from release, but you can get a head start on the game by preordering the “Rigor Mortis Edition” bundle from developer, Deep Silver, today. Fun Fact: The contents of this edition were actually chosen by you, the fans!
Dead Island: Riptide screenshots aren't exactly in short supply, as we saw a batch themed around the new chef character near the beginning of the month. But series fans demand more pictures of survivors slaughtering the undead, so it would be irresponsible of developer Techland not to dish new pics out. The highlight of this latest array of images is undoubtedly the one pictured above, in which a man with a bad haircut fends off an undead attacker with a boat oar. When the zombies come a-calling, who has time to get a proper haircut?
Steven Seagal is perhaps the greatest action hero of the 80s and 90s when it comes to using the assets given to him. He does not have the muscular stature of Arnie, the wit of Bruce, or even a decent haircut. However, in Under Siege he was a slightly portly chef that kicked butt. Now you can play a similar chef in&nb...
Dead Island Riptide is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on April 23rd, 2013. The co-op zombie Action/RPG is said to bring new gameplay mechanics, new locales, more zombie types, and of course, a better co-op experience. The original game was a definite favorite around the Co-Optimus HQ, scoring an Editor's Choice Award in our review. But can the new one live up to its predecessor? We went eyes on with the game at PAX 2012 and saw some of the goodness.
