Stop making me cry game trailers for Dead Island!

05.17.2011

What the f*ck is wrong with you, trailer creators for DEAD ISLAND? You are seriously messing with my emotions! (Maybe I get sad too easily) You're also guaranteed $50.00 (I'll be playing on PC) from my bank account when this damn game comes out. You win, okay?

While there's no possible way to top the first trailer, everything about this new trailer still tugs at my heart strings. The game is due out August 1st and will be heavy on melee combat, not to mention custom weapons. If you want to play with your pals, you'll have access to 4 player co-op mode. The island of Banoi awaits you!

Check out the trailer below.

Extra Tidbit: I'm never taking my family off the coast of Papua New Guinea (Banoi is located nearby)...unless I'm properly armed.

Smooveluv touched on this earlier, but - from everything I've seen on game sites - that heartbreakingly awesome original trailer is the polar opposite of the actual tone of the game. The Dead Rising games are apparently high drama by comparison.

Too bad, if it's true. Having a three-year-old daughter, that first trailer hit me harder than most feature-length films.

Music

Fantastic music in both trailers, and I hope the game can live up to the vibe coming across so far.

This is a good trailer but nothing like the 1st trailer. This game cant possibly live up to the hype its getting now, Im hoping its still a great time though.

This was

Not even close to the first trailer. It was like the cobbled together the music and tried to remind you of how the first trailer made you feel. Not a bad trailer - but my eyes are dry, and I feel no urge to rewatch.

On a related note - make with World War Z already!!!

Everything we've seen from the game so far is breathtaking. I can only hope that we get a very personal and emotional experience with the campaign, and not a "Dead Rising" style of zombie rampage.

BTW, the island itself looks gorgeous.. exploring the land with zombies popping up around every corner should be fantastic.

The gameplay footage that is so far available is not nearly as emotional nor personal as the trailers would have you believe. Don't set your expectations too high. It should be good - but it's going to be very much a mele combat single player game. The 4 selectable characters that have been made public so far are pretty generic - especially the "black hip-hop" stereotype they used in the gameplay footage.

It pretty much sounds like an open-world Left 4 Dead, but melee focused and with light RPG mechanics. Should be fun.
