Dead Island: Review

Standard

GameArena: “There is no reason to buy Dead Island: Riptide. I can’t even suggest you buy it if you haven’t played the original – whether you have or not, Dead Island Riptide is not worth buying. With the all new and exciting bugs Techland have added, you are paying seven times as much for a worse version of the game. There was some speculation when Riptide was first announced whether it would be an expansion or a video game.

DEAD POOL NEW SCREENSHOTS

Standard

High Moon Studios has released some new screenshots for the upcoming Dead Pool. Dead Pool is an expert with both swords and guns. Creative director Seam Miller:

IF YOU DO GAMES BASED ON WOLVERINE IT HAS TO BE THAT CHARACTER, YOU’RE KIND OF LIMITED BECAUSE EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT CHARACTER. HERE WE HAD THIS CHARACTER WHO WAS THIS FLAWED SUPERHERO, THAT WAS INTERESTING. THE IDEA THAT HE WAS INSANE CREATED THIS MIXTURE OF COMEDY AND REALLY VISCERAL ACTION. I LOVE THE VISCERAL ACTION BUT I ALSO LIKE TO LAUGH, I DON’T THINK WE DO THAT ENOUGH IN GAMES.”

“THERE’S THE MORE VULNERABLE STATE; HE’S A GUY THAT CRACKS WISE. WHY DO PEOPLE MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH? BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE LIKED. THERE’S AN ELEMENT OF THAT IN THE COMICS AND IT WAS FASCINATING TO ME… SO WE PUT TOGETHER A PITCH FOR WHAT WE THOUGHT WOULD BE A GOOD DEADPOOL GAME AND FOUND THAT MARVEL WAS INTERESTED IN IT TOO. WHEN WE DID OUR PROTOTYPE AND SHOWED THEM THE MATURE TAKE THEY DUG IN WITH BOTH FEET, WHICH WAS FANTASTIC.”
