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?
It's hard to keep just about anything under wraps in this newfangled digital frontier. Case in point, the internet watchdogs who patrol Amazon in like six different countries noticed two new items from publisher Deep Silver: Saints Row IV: Game of the Century Edition, and Dead Island Double Pack. While a Deep Silver rep has come forward and announced the Game of the Century edition, it's only been announced for Europe.
With only a week to go until Halloween time, now is the perfect time to dive into some scary games that go with the holiday very nicely. Starting tomorrow, the PlayStation Store is holding its “Sale of the Dead” event, providing tons of sweet discounts on both single player AND co-op games alike! PlayStation Plus members will be able to grab as much as 80% discounts on some of these games, so it’s most definitely worth looking into.
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.
Reviewing a sequel can be hard sometimes because you aren't exactly sure which audience you should be talking to. Usually you have to divide the audience into two groups - those that played the original and those that haven't touched the series before. Like any good writer your job is to address both audiences without boring either - you want just enough information to satisfy both while getting your point across. We started our original review of Dead Island with the conclusion - "go buy it." B
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.
