You can see some of "Dead Island in this but the details are pretty good. Game will be in 1080P. At the 7:30 mark it gets a bit interesting as it turns into night.

Um, it's called Dying Light and it's not PS4 exclusive.

I saw a bunch of footage of this one on that horrible VGX show. From what I saw there it killed any interest I had in this game. It just felt so disorienting while watching the footage and just reminds me of Dead Island meets, say, Mirrors Edge. I love ME, but I'm no fan of the Dead Island series at all. It visually looks great, but the gameplay looks repetitive and boring as hell to me. Something seems off about it, the hit detection or something, I'm not sure. I want to like it, but I'll wait for reviews before deciding for sure, but so far I'm not too high on it anymore.

Somehow there were two identical threads on this. I've merged them.

Same here...kinda. I actually liked Dead Island, but I don't know that I want to play it again, even with all the free running nonsense.

I'll wait for reviews as well, but right now it's not on my must buy list.

Looks like a good time to me. FYI, Best Buy added this to their $10 RZ cert promo for preordering, along with Destiny, Watch Dogs, Elder Scrolls Online & South Park, as long as you preorder before 12/31. I went ahead and ordered it (and all of the others). Figured I'd lock in the post-promo and GCU $38 price and then cancel if something unsells me on it.

Am I the only one completely disenfranchised with zombie games in general? I much prefer shooting smart, able-bodied bad guys who move in regular fashion rather than smashing in the heads of hordes of mindless lumbering zombies again and again. Seriously, I don't know if it's just me (I really never hear other folks complaining about it, so it might be just me), but the excessive gore and mindless repetition of unsatisfying zombie mutilation really bums me out and I just don't enjoy the entire sub-genre.
Taking out a deadly enemy sniper on the other side of a cityscape before he can get you? That's awesome in my book. Hitting yet another zombie over the head with a shovel until he drops? Not so much.

Where is the new list at? All I see are the ones that they already removed from the program (AC4, BF4, etc).

If you log in to MyBestBuy, it's under the list of offers. For some reason it's included under the general program, not under GCU.

Loved Dead Island. This will probably be a day one purchase.

Thanks guys. Looks like I'm going to preorder Destiny and Watch_Dogs. They don't hit your card until it ships or ready for store pickup though, right?

I just wish they would make a zombie game based more around exploration and basic survival needs. It would be something different for a change. This game looks interesting to me but the night part looks like it is going to be frustrating to find your way out.

Not sure what that's supposed to mean, but if you see a better offer than $47.99 + a $10 reward cert please let us know.

It is very easy for that to happen... he wasn't being negative...

actual I'm pretty sure they'll hit your card with a temp charge on a monthly basis just to ensure funds are still available. it may be more frequent than that... it's been a while since I preordered anything from Best Buy.

I'm OK with a temp charge. I just don't want to be charged now for a game that doesn't come out for 9 months.

Balls! I never did get around to DI: Riptide, but I had a lot of fun with Dead Island. Hopefully the delay means some significant improvements. I'm still looking forward to this one.
