I met this dude who got bit and he told me to get some @#$%in' drugs so I ripped some plants out of the ground and force fed him those. He was all right. Mission accomplished.
He said to look for his old boyfriend who I found hangin' out on a beach surrounded by @#$%in' zombies! Like, how old you gotta be to know that zombies=bad? Damn. And he was on crutches 'cause he sawed off his own @#$%in' leg. Man, that's hardcore.
This old dude and I become butt-buddies and he sends me on a series of fetch quests to get rope and engines and batteries, blah blah blah. On one of these missions, I meet the guy from Dead Space who's all like "woo I am an angel, come to my secret lair and I'll give you my gun" *wink wink*
No thanks, Dead Space guy. But I go with him anyway and learn a whole @#$%-ton more about crafting. I learned some pretty sweet @#$% from this guy. So I get sucked off by a bunch of zombie @#$%in' ostriches and start selling drugs to monkeys for mystic sigils.
I finally get a little creeped out by Dead Space guy and split to go find my crippled BFF. He's aight, just kickin' it on another island. Then there are these planes and a 9/11 conspiracy and little girls and a fishing sidequest. I @#$%in' love fishing sidequests.
4 islands of increasing size
cramped but great inventory / crafting
loads of zombies but it doesn't seem tedious
probably fun online
lots of opportunities to min/max
linear gameplay w/ sidequests
My only beef with this game is that you walk too @#$%in' slow.
