Dying Light gets a new trailer at E3, plus a new release date that will delay the dying.

Awhile back we mentioned the new PS4 game DYING LIGHT, it was pretty close to it’s original release date back in April. In fact, when I bought a PS4, this was my first intended purchase besides what I picked up with the console.  With a mere few days to go before it’s release, news had hit that it was being pushed back.  Not sure the exact reason why.  Could it have to do with fatigue due to DEAD ISLAND and DI: RIPTIDE recently coming out?  Truth be told, DYING LIGHT certainly looks like a next-gen version of the DEAD ISLAND games. Not that it’s a bad thing, I had fun with DEAD ISLAND, and even more of a blast with RIPTIDE due to playing most of co-op with my brother in law.

The Light will not be Dying in 2014…..boo!

The good news is there is a brand new trailer for DYING LIGHT that is full of zombie carnage, destruction, & gore.  The bad news?  The release date now stands at February 2015. I hope the new trailer cheers up those who were expecting the game to come sooner…check it out below!

World War Z game coming to ios & android…..and here’s a preview….

It’s no secret my not so positive reaction to what the WWZ movie has seemingly become, (namely a generic running-zombie cgi fest w/Brat Pitt!) however when it comes to video games, especially zombie-related games, I can be quite more forgiving of all the usual and familiar tropes as long as the game is fun to play.

Will WWZ be fun? Will there be effort into making a compelling game that has some lasting power? Or will it be a shameless piece of promotion for the movie? Is it possible to be both? We’ll find out on May 30th….until then check out this preview…

Let’s hope the entire game is as good as the opening credits for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct game……

The Walking Dead’s second video game installment (unrelated to Telltale’s The Walking Dead episodic adventure from 2012) is about to hit consoles in a few days and so far other than knowing you play as Daryl Dixon in the events leading up to the TV show’s pilot, not  much has been revealed.

Well here is a cool little tidbit to wet the appetite further, the opening credits from the game have leaked online….check ’em out below….

Get a taste of what’s in store in Dead Island: Riptide in this 10 minute game-play preview

Fans of Dead Island will be happy to see that it looks like the sequel has been largely unchanged, and is more of a tweaking job for the follow up “Dead Island: Riptide”  In this preview video, we see the the player first trying to scout some weapons from around the island to defend the safe-house  and then the following mission which is to hold off a few waves of zombie attacks while water is being pumped out of an underground tunnel system…..

Be sure to be locked & loaded when Dead Island: Riptide releases in April!

Full “Zombies” mode trailer released for Treyarch’s Black Ops 2!!! Oh Yes!!

I often get asked, “Are you really shelling out $60 for another Call of Duty game?” While the wallet has definitely gotten tighter over the years and I have to make my gaming purchases a little more far and few between…there is a reason I will keep snatching up Treyarch’s version of the critically acclaimed series…see below:

Black Ops 2 hits on November 13th!  Pre-order now!

First teaser for Zombie-mode in Black Ops II hits the web….

This is what we’ve been waiting for right? Treyarch has included a zombie mode in their last two Call of Duty Games (World at War & Black Ops) and it was confirmed long ago that zombies would be a part of the latest entry, Black Ops 2, as well as expanded zombie gameplay modes including it’s own campaign mode. The only thing that was missing was footage to wet our appetites…..UNTIL NOW!

Rest assured this is only the beginning….stay tuned for more!

 

Dead Island: Riptide’s trailer explodes onto the internet…

Remember the first trailer for the original Dead Island? Highly emotional stuff…it sparked quite the discussion.  Well, here comes the first trailer for Deep Silver’s follow up Dead Island: Riptide.

Furious monsoon rainstorms have laid waste to the island of Palanai in the Banoi archipelago, waters have risen and caused a flood disaster — because of this and the raging zombie invasion, a rescue mission for the survivors seems to be without prospect of success. All hope seems to have been lost for the surviving humans…

Dead Island:Riptide is planned for a 2013 release!

Telltale’s The Walking Dead Episode #4 “Around Every Corner” gets a trailer…

Is this a sign that Episode #4 in Telltale’s The Walking Dead video game series is going to be on the way sooner than later? Hot on the heels of the release of episode #3 of TWD, comes the trailer not more than 48 hours later. This is pretty uncharacteristic of the series thus far, as much time has passed between the first three episodes.  Check out the trailer for “Around Every Corner” below….

***Warning, the trailer is likely to spoil elements of the third episode in the series, and given that the third episode just released a few days ago, it is highly likely a lot of you have not played through it yet. (Including myself, and I am refraining from watching this preview for that very reason….ok you’ve been warned)
