Watch F.A.L.C.O. Decapitate Zombies In 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?

Dead Island: Riptide Co-Op FAQ

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.

Relax, These Dead Island: Riptide Screens Can't Kill You

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?
