Dead Island hands on preview (G4TV)

With the launch of Dead Island around the corner (September 6th 2011), if you’re a fan of zombie killing games, you’ll probably enjoy this game. I myself am huge into games like Dead Rising. Below is part of a hands on preview of Dead Island, provided by G4TV.com… Hope you enjoy!

Dead Island. Its debut trailer was heralded as one of the most daring and emotionally-charged of all time. The slow, somber music – which I’m listening to even now as I type this preview – was even a small meme for a time, covered by Toby Turner of literal video game trailers fame and inserted into Lord of the Rings. And damn if it doesn’t make me tear up just thinking about it.

Let’s Play Trine Part 1

I have finally got around to uploading part 1 of my Let’s Play of Trine. I was able to get this game through Steam for $4.50 and it is quite good for the price I paid. It was a challenging game at times but I am just not that great with keyboard controls for platformers. This is part 1 of 22, so I will be uploading another part each day (as long as I don’t forget about it, which I have for the over the past 5 days or so). So enjoy.

Ubisoft E3 Conference Summary

– Ubisoft conference starting. Yyves Guillemot onstage. Thanks everyone for their support over the last 25 years. Looks forward to another 25 years.

– Rayman Origins upcoming. Really bad but funny Shakespeare re-enactment on stage, it lightened the mood. Hand drawn graphics. game being demoed.
Very nice environments, looks gorgeous. Refers to the secondary thing following Rayman as Blue Thing. Platforming looks very well done, best platforming I have seen since New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Little bit of a tetris puzzle going on in the cave level, lots of lava, again looks gorgeous. The music is catchy. New area, at a harbour, looks gorgeous again. Underwater now, getting chased by huge works, reminds me of a Super Metroid boss. Can beat up each in multiplayer. Now you are in snowy mountains and the treasure chest that you have been chasing has been stolen, now it transitions into an flying stage that looks to be a lot of fun. A lot of buildings and such in the background, adds a lot to the environment
Demo over, looks to be a very great game. Four player co-op for the game. They open the chest and out pops Ubisoft characters from throughout the years.

– Aaron Pricemen on stage. Talking about the past. Haha talking about Driver and showed up a video of what it would look like if they released it back in the past. Now he is talking Driver San Francisco. Trailer playing. Looks to be mostly cgi trailer with a quick change to gameplay where you have a cockpit view in the vehicles. Not really impressive, uplay support.
