I wish those games were ANYTHING like their trailers.  Ever.

Quite.

Good job, gamer nerds.

I enjoyed it a lot.  Got a bit repetitive in a few spots but good gameplay.  Haven't played the sequel (there is one, yes?)

Honestly, that is  shockingly impressive.

I very much enjoyed Dead Island, actually. Sure, it wasn't the magical open-world zombie game we were promised, and the item degradation wasn't that enjoyable, but hell if it wasn't entertaining to run around smacking zombies in the head with an electrified baseball bat. Really looking forward to Dying Light, which looks like an awesome combination of Dead Island and Mirror's Edge.

Holy fark that was fantastic.

Alright, so that was great.  Real question, though... Since that wasn't part of the game budget, who paid for it?  I mean, doing something like that doesn't come cheap, there's at least a few grand in that video.

I'm guessing that this is a good way to get your name out in Hollywood.

Pretty good.
Can the zombie games be over now?

Wow. Absolutely outstanding.

Very impressive. Minor flaws (and terrible launch/build at launch) aside it's a pretty fun game as well.

Good thing the ad was good; I couldn't stand the game.  Gameplay was okay.  Characterization sometimes bordered on racist.  And the missions were a pain in the ass: I need you to get the pass card from this building.  Thanks for coming back.  Now I need you to go to the building beside where you got the card and get this item.  Hey, use the card.

I liked the analog combat system.

Not familiar with the game or the original ad, but that was amazing. And rather sad.

All the Fark links I'm clicking on today have been total downers.

Too bad the game was crap.

Right. That was depressing as hell.

Can this whole zombie thing please be done? Pretty please?

I wish Arkham Origins was like it's trailer.  Buggy unpolished piece of shiat.  Why oh why did Rocksteady sell their flagship franchise.
