So having just come upon my first exploding zombie, I immediately backed up to (what I thought was) a relatively safe distance, and started throwing knives at it. Apparently I was a bit too close, as I died an immediate death in the slimy explosion. I'm fine with that, lesson learned, whatever, but when I went back to retrieve my weapons, my best one (by far) had gotten stuck in the ground geometry, making it impossible to pick back up.
So far my experience with Dead Island seems to include a lot of these moments. Whether it be zombies going through my foot when I try to kick them, or my analog melee controls spazzing out when my thumb isn't even touching the right stick, all of it leads to the game not being as enjoyable as it should be to me. I love how the game feels and how it (should) play, but the odd broken mechanic is ruining the game for me. Hopefully it'll get better as I play more, or at least become less noticeable as I start to hit the inevitable super-powerful stage.
So what do you guys think? Do you have any stories of annoying glitches, or has it been smooth sailing?
