I don't know if you have read anything on the new Star Trek movie, but to make it short: Earth is in an epic crisis, and the villain is a Starfleet crew member. I have my guesses on who that person may be, but it is still kept under wraps. I still can't get a good feel of what this teaser is going for (it's pretty short), but if the film is going for something else, then I am fine with that. There is enough films and products out there trying to be something close to their origins (or carbon copies).
That is the thing that bums me out then. I want space. They go to earth way to much. Like c'mon aliens and big ship battles. Forget earth.
@ProfessorEss: Yeah, oddly enough I find myself sometimes getting sort of terrified walking through the city section. Hearing a horrible growl in the distance and wondering if a horde is going to come charging at me. I know people have told me to play with others but damn if there isn't something to being isolated in a city full of zombies with nothing but a pipe wrench and a machete to protect yourself with. I'll have moments of seeing a horde corner another survivor and I'll have to peruse my inventory trying to see if I want to bother potentially wasting all of my good weapons taking out the 6-7 zambies that are surrounding the location the survivor is held up in. If the presentation part of this game could have been brought up to where the game play is I think it would have been on the shelf for GOTY discussions last year.
