#1 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Looks like Newegg is starting their pre-Black Friday sales. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Dead Island are on sale for $19.99 with free shipping.

If anyone's interested, it seems that the sale is on for 72 hours, so get your goodies while the getting is good.

There's also a ton of other crap on sale too. If you're building a PC, now's the time of year to shop for components.

I'm torn on whether I should wait to get Dead Island at the Best Buy Black Friday sale. It will be $7.99 but I have to deal with the mobs.

Dead Island isn't worth getting bumrushed. Then again, I don't expect many people to be rushing to pick it up...

Your call.

Dead Island is kind of meh. Remember the trailer? That's what they were going with initially, and then in early development they said "fuck it, we're taking the easy road". It showed a lot of promise, but it's still fun for the first half of the game, so 20$ might be worth it.

My interest was piqued by the GB Quicklook. Am I off base in labeling the game as a FPS open world RPG with an emphasis on melee combat, skill customization, and an drop in/out coop system? Not RPG like a Fallout game (or as deep) but with better combat mechanics? I'm excited to play Far Cry 3 and I thought about this game as a hold over until its release. And again $8 or $20 seems like a deal.

I kinda liked the game, but after the 3rd lost data fiasco with it I was done. PS3 version BTW.

@djou: Yeah that's a perfect description. It entirely depends if you're interested in loot based RPGs. I love those types of games, but I couldn't bring myself to finish Dead Island.

@TheDudeOfGaming: I'm really fascinated, I also love those types of games and the odd controller setup that Brad displayed in the Quick Look looked really interesting. Its on my list of games to play, most likely I'm going to pick it up over the holiday when I see a deal, questions is how cheap do I wait it to go, $20 seems like a good deal for the goty.
