OK, I know that the zombie apocalypse is not supposed to be the happiest thing in the world. You know, losing family, no internet, and people wanting to eat your face like they are high on bath salts. But man, is this little teaser-trailer for Dead Island: Riptide dour. A cute couple about to end their lives together with a sea of zombies at the door of their boat. There is something beautiful here and the music tries to emphasize that, but it's still super-sad. Metro: Last Light had a similar feeling trailer that was released earlier in the week. Is this the new thing? Make the gamer feel like garbage?
Dead Island: Riptide is not a proper sequel to Dead Island, but more of a spin off and it is being developed by Techland. As long as the combat system is a blast like in the first game, I expect to have a good time.
