Announcement - Valve
In celebration of the just launched Mac version of Dead Island, Save 75% on the Dead Island series during this week's Midweek Madness*!

Terror. Violence. Madness. Bedlam. A holiday paradise gone mad. A tropical island turns into total chaos after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player’s only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.
Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of a vast array of weapons. All of these gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.

*Offer ends Friday at 10AM Pacific

It is also a paparazzi simulatorDid you know that the costumes the Alliance soldiers wear in the Firefly episode The Train Job were originally used in Starship Troopers? That sort of recycling happens all the time in movies and TV. I’m a person of limited imagination, so when I first spotted Techland’s Dying Light, it appeared to me that they had swathes of zombie material lying around from Dead Island and decided to reshape it into a game about free-running past the undead. I still kind of stand by that. Whatever its inception, the fleet-footed zombie dodger is coming out pretty soon, and there’s a wee teaser trailer for you below. … [visit site to read more]

Microsoft has revealed the pair of games coming free to Xbox Live Gold members in February, namely action-tower defense Toy Soldiers: Cold War and Techland's FPS action-RPG Dead Island. They're a fair enough pair of games, but, well, February's PlayStation Plus lineup includes Metro: Last Light, Payday 2, and Outlast.

Hellraid is the next violence-mare due from the e’er unpredictable Techland stable, and it is some manner of first-person sword-stabbing game. Whether it would join the ranks of the vanishingly few effective first-person melee games was something we were due to find out in the few remaining weeks of 2013. No longer! Techland have pushed it back to next year, in the wake of mixed tester feedback. In other words, they want to make the knob bits not-knob.

title="Permanent Link to Dead Island MOBA being put together by Bloodline Champions developer">Dead Island Epidemic

With the mashing-together of the words "Dead Island MOBA," Deep Silver risks finally bringing its Dead Island franchise into the realm of the truly horrifying. Don't count it out, though, as the publisher has confirmed that it's brought on board Bloodline Champions developer Stunlock Studios, which is apparently steering Dead Island: Epidemic from the treacherously tepid LoL-clone waters.

The free-to-play "ZOMBA," as Deep Silver has been calling this new invention, was originally announced earlier this month, but its developer was confirmed today in a report at Polygon. Stunlock emphasizes that it won't be doing the usual League of Legends-style thing, instead aiming more for the multiplayer arena combat of Bloodlines. (Hopefully with less of a learning curve, though.) This will become especially apparent in its Capture the Flag mode, charmingly referred to as "PvPvPvE" by its designers—players in three teams may occasionally have to put aside their distaste for each other by teaming up to overcome the swelling zombie waves.

Players will also be able to craft their own weapons to suit their own "personality and play style," which explains the miniature cannon that the hunchbacked guy in that screenshot above seems to be lugging about. Hopefully, this will warrant the inclusion of a zombie-repelling cocktail umbrella and a party blower, to suit my ZOMBA-on-the-beach partying ways.

title="Permanent Link to Humble Deep Silver Bundle adds Dead Island and Metro 2033 to sweeten the deal">Metro 2033

The Deep Silver Humble Bundle turned some heads last week, with a great deal on games like Saints Row: The Third and Risen 2: Dark Waters. Now the bundle has expanded to include Dead Island and Metro 2033, making it a deal that is just ridiculous to pass up.

Paying more than the average ($5.14, as of this writing) gets you Dead Island, Metro 2033, Risen 1, Sacred Citadel and all Saints Row: The Third DLC. You can also pay more than $25 to get the recently released Dead Island: Riptide.

As with all Humble Bundles, you get to name your price and divide your purchase between publisher Deep Silver, charities like the American Red Cross, Child’s Play and World Vision, or Humble Bundle itself.

In my opinion, too many gamers have overlooked Metro 2033, which would be worth the $5 purchase price alone. If you're still holding off on the excellent Metro: Last Light, maybe exploring the previous game in that series will convince you.

Head over the Humble Bundle site and check it out. Over 400,000 bundles have already been sold, but the deal runs out next Tuesday, August 13.
