lulz, strange tales from LIVE..... what next nude dudes on Uno?

Surprisingly enough, this happened on Steam and not on Live. If it was an open microphone on Live I would have been hearing incessant rap music whilst having racial slurs hurled at me.

We PC gamers are delightfully snobbish.

I just beat this game. It clocked in at 16 hours, and I wouldn't mind seconds. It started to get a little sloppy and draggy towards the end (way too many tedious escort missions in Act 3), but it felt pretty tight otherwise.

I have to say, I'm pleasantly surprised by this one.
Your mom!

I wouldn't mind "escort missions" in Hung: The Game.   O0

They're escort missions but not like Dead Rising escort missions, they generally can help themselves and are no where near as annoying as Dead Rising or some other games escort missions where the person you're escorting is like a freaking child.

True, but what bothered me about the escort missions in Dead Island is that they are so damn long. Towards the end of the game you spend a solid half hour traipsing through the jungle protecting some dude with a grass skirt and a bone through his nose, then when you get him to his destination you IMMEDIATELY turn around and hold some random chick's hand all the way back. And I mean immediately, as in you get to the destination, there is a cut scene that makes absolutely no sense, and you turn around and come back with random lady in tow.

Better still, just when you think you are done escorting the random lady this other random Jamaican dude, who you earlier told to stay on the boat, decides to get off of the boat and you have to save and escort HIM as well.

Was it a small part of the game? Yes, but I still found it annoying.

Got this today for £20 in GAME and after 2 minutes of gameplay feel totally ripped off. Took an instant dislike to it, can't believe what a steaming pile of shite it is. I'm gonna give up buying games soon if this is what gets churned out, should have just saved the money :(

Edit: BTW, the reason I took an instant dislike to it was because it reminded me straight away of Bioshock, which I really didn't like!


Thank god for the new Tomb Raider, helped me de-stress after a tough week! More of the same please

Sorry Failed, I don't think it's helped that as soon as I started the game 2 people jumped in to my game and did the first mission while I was still trying to figure out what to do. Doesn't seem to be anyway of turning the co-op option off (unless I log out of LIVE I suppose)

surely you can change your settings to Private. who knows, i think you should have a look and stick with it. It'll probably grow on you.



oh and £20 for it is a bargain

I couldn't see anything when I looked, dunno whether it's even worth me putting it back in the disc tray, I've already decided I don't like it, too much like Bioshock :(
