Dead Island's Lively Trailer

Poor old Dead Island - it must be pretty stressful, putting out any new trailer after the frenzy around that one. Especially as they now need to show off the actual game, rather than just a conceptual short film. The E3 trailer has several elements in common with the CGI weepfest, notably slow motion, the music and a few snippets of dialogue to suggest emotional as well as gory horror, but all told I'm preeeeeeeetty sure we're looking at an all-out carnival of death.

Looks like it gets pretty sci-fi too. More so than zombies, I mean - all sorts of strangeness going on there.

The player's arms look funny to me. Do they look funny to you?

Far Cry with zombies, remains my hope. We'll find out in August, anyway.
