Dead Island - Need A Vacation From This Vacation

This episode is inspired by:

Quick Review:

Dead Island is a visceral up-close-and-personal zombie massacring thrill ride. Well, "thrill ride" may be misleading... the open-world aspect and scores of side quests allow you to set your own pace. But the huge maps, excellent graphics and large arsenal of weapons will immerse you in a brutal, exhilarating experience.

It's an addicting, satisfying game of zombie dismemberment.

Next zombie apocalypse, I'm going to be the one giving orders, and everyone else can go fetch their own damn teddy bears.

Clyde Says

I just want to know where these bikini-clad zombies are hiding thousands of dollars and steel rods. No, wait... don't wanna know.

Artist's Notes

How come there were no zombie children? I don't want to fight kids, I just want to have some explanation why there aren't any around. I could have bought into the idea that it's an adults-only resort island, but the dramatic, slow-motion trailer that really raised awareness for this game revolved around a little girl. It made me think there was going to be a really powerful, emotionally-gripping story to the game. Ehhhh, not so much.
