So yeah, here's an archived copy of a livestream the guys at Polygon did.

It looks really good despite some tech issues due to the 360's constraints. Could be really special on PC.

That looks really cool. If it does come out next week I'll be buying it for sure.

It's weird that they haven't confirmed it'll be out next week even though the embargo ends on the Wednesday.

I have not heard anyone talk about issues with the 360 version.

I've been burnt out on zombies, but this really looks like it's worth playing. I love the part where you can climb towers and identify nearby buildings. Sure it's similar to the AC towers, but it's a nice addition to a zombie survival game.

This game seems to have a lot of stuff I was hoping for from Dead State--not as tactical of course, but the safehouse and community building stuff seems similar. It also reminds me a lot of a 3rd person version of Rebuild.

@the_laughing_man: Watch the video and you will :)

Specifically some frame rate issues they attribute to the games ambition which I guess will be less of an issue on PC whenever that version is released, and also stuff like a slightly dodgy camera which obviously isn't something you can attribute to the platform.

Nothing terrible IMO. It all looked very playable and packed with very interesting mechanics.

Course what they are playing might not be a release build. And there is all ways patches.

@the_laughing_man: I find it unlikely that they'll be able to increase performance in such a short time but if the release version is more stable then that would be very cool.

Either way I think I will probably get it.

I am really excited for this but I can't figure out when the confirmed release date is. I keep hearing the fifth of June, then I just hear June in general :(

Embargo drops the 5th. So I am hoping that week. And I am also excited as hell. Only other game I got this worked up over was Trenched.

Pretty sure it doesn't have an exact release date because it's been in Microsoft certification, so it's out of Undead Lab's hands.

This looks like the game I had hoped Dead Rising would be, really excited for it to drop!
