Well after disabling dual screens and steam in game it run fine for me still a few bugs but not so that it gets in the way of the game.

I died kicking a beach ball, and at the end of a quest so its not perfect but that not the normal.

However for a game presented as a sandbox its not, areas are just invisible walled off or locked until you complete earlier quest. Ok the story maybe broken by no linear play but fallout manages it. Lot of the quest are flimsy at best and also the crafting system requires blueprints you can't just experiment with the bits you picked up. However the game is fun, I played it hours with noko and we been pissing about beating up folk. Play it light heartedly and try to make sure everyone stays levels in coop and it be fun certainly worth 23 quid (thanks brune).

About 11 hours in still in Act 1! Finding it a much more enjoyable single player experience than I thought I would, the sound is quite atmospheric especially when you hear the screaming and await the fast mob of zombies or you hear a Thug zombie roaring nearby! I love all the over the top gore, nothing better than cutting a zombies arms off, watch the stumps spout blood as it fails to bite you then decapitate it and move ont the next one! :D

About 7 hours into the game, level 9. Really enjoying the game also. Considering the game is set in broad daylight and you're surrounded by a lovely beach and pools, it's quite a tense game in the atmosphere department, you get into quite a panic when zeds come rushing at you from all angles and one gets too close and pounces on you and you have to try and beat it off.

I also like all the detailed decapitations and all the different ways you can kill them, I once cut the top part of a zeds head off and the thing lumbered towards me swinging its arms blind, before it fell to it's knees and rolled forward dead, nice.

There's an interesting mod called Dead Island Plus, which increases realism and difficulty. I'm waiting for a few more updates before trying myself, but it's nice to see some mod support already.

Ths thread lists all the mods so far, http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2106453

And the Firsts of Rage mod looks super fun, watch here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoLadZotBuE :D

Quote:

Evidently, Dead Island’s Xian Does Not Wear Panties [NSFW]

Intrepid videographer HazardHeresy noticed that when leggy survivor Xian struggles to her feet in Dead Island, you can get a glimpse of her landing strip. No, really, she's going commando. Fast forward that video past the stupid-long preamble to 1:53 and you'll see what he's talking about—helpfully zoomed in close-up.

As grateful as I am for this particular bit of research I don't think this rises to the level of scandal, certainly not "Hot Coffee," which involved actual sex-having. This is an M-rated game. Know what else was M-rated? Grand Theft Auto: The Lost and Damned, and that featured full-frontal nudity. Male nudity, as in, actual wiener. So, no, even if the ESRB hall monitors missed this, it's not gonna get the game pulled.

So there's a new update for Dead Island. Great right, a patch after all these weeks? Only problem is, the patch broke the game, you can't launch it. Haha, Techland releasing one screw up after another, class. :D
