So I just received this in my twitter feed...

I have a bad feeling about this.

    I have mixed feelings about if whether it's worth it or not, the original wasn't very good so I'm sceptical. :-/

    Might just go with Dead Rising, Left 4 Dead or Black Ops.



    Left 4 Dead is fun to play with friends, but that depends on the type of people you play with. This game isn't too serious, but rather fun, so don't get frustrated, and try to make fun of it.

    Black Ops... no game I'd recommend to anyone, I mean Zombies take 10 or more headshots if you survive a couple of waves, how much that sucks is just... self explanatory. In my opinion it really really sucks, but others like it.
    Go ahead and watch some gameplay.

    @Phil_TWD said: Get Killing Floor, dawg.
    As for Killing Floor: It is a great game, but again I'd strongly recommend playing with friends. Is it only me, or are the games in Killing Floor way too short? Are there more than 4 waves per game possible or not? (answer please if possible) Other than that it is really fun.

    Holy shit, what? I don't think I've ever even seen a 4 wave game. It's usually ~10 waves. Amp up your difficulty, son, and don't join short games!

    Stay on normal if your perks are low, though.

    Then I'll go give it another try xD

  • TWD Survival Instincts is a decent game. The combat mechanics suck tho.

  • Tried these demos

    Left 4 Dead 2 - Holy shit walkers everywhere and shoot, shoot and shoot! < Avoid

    Dead Rising - Customise the character with anime-related producs, stuff the walkers with masks, hit them with carts/bats/knifes/discs/etc.

    I've decided to go with Dead Rising, it's not a survival walker game but it's a ton of fun that the demo's proved to be. Capcom didn't fuck this game up. :p

    Street Fighter X Tekken is another game I've bought from Capcom, it's great but the disc locked content is very displeasing and upsetting because that content should've been included for free since the beginning.

    disagree also left 4 dead 2 is made by/with valve as well

  • The walkers just kept on reproducing in 10's to 20's quantities and for some reason it didn't feel right in first person view shooting them, or I'm just too used to the mechanics of Call of Duty and didn't get used to that.

    Still, I have to admit Dead Rising's demo was a lot more fun than L4D2 for me.

    It is a game that you either like or you don't there is no grey area. But the point in that game is the teamwork, and as I said above in singleplayer you can only have so little fun compared to a co-op session with up to 3 of your friends.
    While one guy covers the group with a rifle, another goes for shotguns, in other words makes space for the group, while another guy keeps all sectors covered with his m16/AK/Scar etc.

    In singleplayer it is pretty dull, as you have 5 campaigns, which are about well... 4-5 hours together, not each and no replay value at all, because it is an annoying, rage struggle with the stupid ass AI, while co-op gives you a cool vietnam-squad-going-through-hell-together feeling.
    It can be great, it can suck as well.

    I never played dead rising but from what I've seen it is a pretty cool game too, so have fun with it. ;)

    Oh, and if you like the Dead Rising mechanics + the open world and such, keep an eye out for the release of "state of decay" somewhen next month.
    Youtube might give you a good impression on what it'll be like.

  • Sorry to revive this topic but did this game just died out or what?

    I don't know what to make of it but it's The Walking Dead, for gods sakes.

  • It is dead and buried, nobody I know bought it but what really is sad is it was number nine best selling of march, the same month Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite came out, how the hell did that happen? Well if you want to see stupidity then go to Xbox360's market place and look at the Walking Dead Survival Instincts, it has 4 out of five stars, same as are game, plus Aliens Colonial Marines has a higher score then both games but that is another story.
