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.
When the planets align just right, and the kids get to bed on time, the Friday Awesomely Live Co-Op crew wind up with a bunch of extra gaming time. A few weekends ago, we had an opportunity to try Don't Starve Together during a free weekend thanks to Steam, and we even had time to continue our Dead Island Riptide campaign. While Don't Starv...
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?
Dead Island is one of those franchises that seemed to come out of nowhere and became instantly popular. The first came was excellent, but did you ever play the 4 player co-op MOBA, Dead Island: Epidemic? If not, you have until October 15th to give the game a go. If you did, get on there and spend up your in game currency!
Dead Island 2 was noticeably absent from E3 this year. We spotted the beginnings of the title last year and had high hopes for what the game would do in the hands of a brand new developer in Yager Interactive. But alas all was not well with the game's publisher Deep Silver not happy with the direction or progress of the title, sending along an official statement on the development status.
2015 is tossing another one of its biggest tent pole games to it's slightly younger brother, 2016. Developer Yager announced via their Twitter page that Dead Island 2 would be delayed until sometime next year. Maybe they need to take another year of speculation on why it's called Dead Island 2, when it takes place on the continental US. That's not an island, people! That's like making a game called Dead Caverns and setting it in a dimly lit parking garage.
2015 looks to be the first solid year in a while for co-op gamers. The Xbox One and PS4 have hit their stride and the PC continues to excel. There’s a few big games on the horizon with a strong focus on those platforms, sadly, leaving being the Xbox 360 and PS3 era. We’ve got both new IPs and old favorites making a return. Let’s d...
Dead Island: Epidemic is now available to play via its Open Beta testing! Various other items such as all new weapon modding and loot systems and PvE mode have also been added to the game, so there's no reason to not check out the game once.
While the launch date of the Dead Island 2 beta still has yet to be announced, publisher Deep Silver has revealed that the first 30 days will be exclusive to PS4. This means that PC and Xbox One owners will have to wait a month longer than the PS4 counterparts.
The most surprising thing about Dead Island 2 isn't the scenic Californian setting, or the up-beat soundtrack, or even the wacky tone in contrast to the first game's solemn feel. Learning DI2 features eight player co-op, though? That's pretty weird. I don't know even one other person that would willingly vault into a zombie-infested sector of the West Coast, let alone seven.
Featuring more blood than a vampire's emergency food supply, the Dead Island 2 Sunshine & Slaughter Trailer shows off a welcome amount of zombie annihilation and mayhem gameplay, just in time for Gamescom.
A few months after the events of the first Dead Island, the infection spread to the continental United States and the state (island?) of California has been quarantined by the government. While the zombie outbreak is under control in Dead Island 2, there are still uninfected humans inside the quarantine zone. The catch here is that these uninfected...
