I can't really bring myself to care about it. I think the idea of a Cooperative survival game is kinda cool, but there's a LOT about the game that irks me.

Also, beware if buying for the PC or 360--you might not get the finished version of the game.

Zombies automatically peak my interest. Unfortunately for zombies, there are three comic games (X-Men Destiny, Spider-Man Edge of Time, and Batman Arkham City) on the horizon that I am far more interested in.

I like it for what it is. Apparently there are some issues with the PC version of the game with every patch messing something up, but I haven't noticed it. Then again, I'm not playing the... official version.

The things I don't like are how fast weapons break and how you're essentially sh*t out of luck if you don't have any weapons. Stomping something to death is apparently not as easy as Dead Space makes it look. Also, some animations are a bit messy, with arms and hands going through solid objects, and some of the character models are meh.

The things I do like are the combat system, where every swing actually feels like a swing, and you do more damage depending on where you hit someone. Breaking down doors requires minor activity from the player's part (for PC users, moving your mouse determines how hard you shoulder the door), and opening doors, climbing ladders and picking up items produces an animation, which all adds to the "realism."

The damage system is brutal. If you're wielding a knife/cleaver/sharp thing, you can cut off heads, arms, hands, legs, feet, stab them to death or throw the pointy ones at them and watch them run around with a cleaver in the face. If you're wielding blunt objects, you can break their legs, arms, necks or simply bash their faces in to produce a fountain of blood. The nasty part is when you get one of the suckers to lie down (break their legs) and then proceed to cut off their limbs with a broken weapon. It won't sever the limb in one cut, but the model will change with flesh and bones being chipped away at. I spent ten swings trying to separate a dead zombie from its left leg, but I gave up when I was down to the tendons and bone.

I also like how you can pick up random household stuff and later on use them to make weapons out of. I picked up some nails, some deodorant cans, some ducts tape and an oar. Used the nails and oar to make a "nail'd bat" and the cans and tape to make "deo bombs."

I think the game will lose a lot of my interest once the bashing of skulls becomes boring, but so far it hasn't.

Edit: This trailer shows some gameplay action.

So...I just bought Civ V for 12.50. **** you, Steam! **** you!
I've been playing so much more games now that I stopped playing WoW. And, even playing more games, I play for less time than I was playing WoW.
I'm happy.

Is Dead Island first person or third person perspective? Also, sounds a bit like Dead Rising 2.

Yeah, well Insomnia sucks when you want to get up at a decent hour and be productive. Didn't get up until almost 2pm today because of the insomnia. Maybe I'll try some relaxation tea tonight and see if that helps things.

The landlord had to reschedule showing the house to new prospective tenants to tomorrow, thankfully. We made good head way yesterday, had a friend who likes cleaning come over and help us some. The office and the bedroom still need quite a bit of work though.

By the way, the soundtrack to Deus Ex: Human Revolution is ******* amazing.

It reminds me of Blade Runner, Tron Legacy, Mass Effect and Two Steps From ****... at the same time. All that awesome, all for me, all at once. Sensory overload.

So much win.

Not particularly. I'll play the occasional CoD or whatever against people, but it isn't something I look for myself when at a game store.

The Maredsous is kind of... not that special. Good beer but I've had better Belgian doubles.
Also, new avatar because this image is just too awesome not to use as avatar.


Edit: And yes that is indeed a rubber ducky being used as a gag.

SO, there's a mystery car parked in my spot (and yes, I am getting very tired of parking issues). It will be towed once I get back from class and can move my car out of the way (since I blocked it in, muahaha).

The other two apartments say it isn't theirs. I believe one of them. I don't believe the other at all, but don't really care--they have no right to my spot. And lying to me about it will just make it sweeter...

And if it IS someone else, they shouldn't have thought they could just park in a private lot without consequences. I hope they enjoy the stupidly expensive bill.
