Dead Island

At what point will zombies cease to be a surprise?

Watch Video

Alright, FarCry 2 used to have this spot, but I think Dead Island may now have the most plausible first-person blackout scene! Congrats to everyone who made passing out drunk possible!

I love Sam B's rap

Logan guy had to play for Canadian League after he killed that girl and broke his leg in 6 places.

"Actually it's Fred, now go and grab a weapon you meat puppet"

Even for a blood drive, I'd have to imagine that hiring a guy like Logan Carter to promote it must have been a...

*puts on sunglasses*

last Resort

Funny episode :)

And seriously... card reader. Dead give-away.

Indeed, I like his rap. And I don't like rap, but this one, is good.

OT: Do you wake drunk in the bed if you pick either of the women as well?

I've only started the game as Sam B. Never finished it, kept bugging out on me.

Maybe it's like Mindjack, and you jumped into him at some point.

"I'm Alan, y'wanker, yer Aussie Git Support Character. Now get out there and get yer arse moving, ya bloody bunghole!"

Just semi-pro. CFL wouldn't stoop that low.

OT: Okay, maybe it's because I've never played it (or been passed-out drunk for that matter), but none of that makes any sense. Who was the first-person character in the opening cutscene? How did the football player suddenly go from the balcony to the elevator? (Or did they just cut some uninteresting gameplay that I wasn't aware of?) And if the elevator is falling out of control, he probably wouldn't be sprawled out on the floor of the elevator. I would assume that inertia would push him upward, unless it wasn't falling as fast as it appeared.

Between this and ZP, no wonder I'm getting such a jaded view of videogames.

You know, I've never used a room key card reader when drunk, for all I know they're designed so that being drunk actually makes them easier to use.

Probably around the same time that a mysterious stranger who watches over security cameras and dispenses advice over radio or PA ends up being selfless, forthright, and helpful throughout an entire game.

Yeah... he's not only a douchebag, but he's a damn liar.

Logan Carter:
Ended up playing semi-pro in fucking Canada.

Don't you dare talk shit aboot Canada! If I ever buy this game, the first thing I'm doing is selecting your Kid-killing ass and feeding you to the first fucking zombie I see!

The reason that everything breaks down the day after zombies appear is because zombies have a natural ability to redirect the entropy that should break down their bodies into inanimate objects. They don't even know they're doing it. It just happens.

I would have liked you to go through the rest of the characters, good opportunity for jokes.

That's a good theory, actually. Someone should implement it.

Same here mate, same here. HEY ZOMBIES, I SHOT THIS GUY IN THE LEG FOR YOU. HAVE FUN!

OT: Do you ever figure out who the first person you are is? And why is he such an alcoholic? Sorry, zombies. All questions now unimportant.

So wait... there was a chance at waking up as a chick?

I still contend that the whole game is the alcohol/drug induced dream of the person in the intro, and they just think they are one of those four people he saw during that drunk stupor. The real ending is the guy waking up over a dead hooker and getting hauled off to jail :3

Would you kindly go and find ye'self a weapon, and kill Andrew Ryan. Wait whut?

Hey I'm bad accent guy No# 198435
Today I'll be annoying australians everywhere
thank you for your time and don't forget to vote for me at the C.A.A's*

*(Crap Accent Awards)

"I like how he didn't break..."
(buffering)

"...Flow at all." <- that actually happened, I lol'ed

Card readers a touchy little things. Sometimes it takes more than 3 tries and sometimes with plentiful alcohol and pills it just takes 1 swipe.

Anyone else have green flashes on the left side of the screen during the credits?

I can see it now. "What the hell? Coulda sworn I was a man... oh well, off to kill some zombies."

I gotta say it, I'm a little disappointed. I've been waiting to hear these guys rip into "Who do you Voodoo, BITCH" since the game came out in September. And yet it passes without even a mention in the video.

Oh sad sad day!

Still a funny video though. See momma, I learned ambivalence!

Ahahahahah I laughed at "I got blood on my...windeshield?"

Decent vid, haven't watched Unskippable in a while.

So Unskippable is doing obviously skippable cutscenes now, huh? Oh well, still a great episode. A+++++, would watch again.

P.S. Thanks

"My name is Atlas, now would you kindly go get a weapon?"

Judging by the accents in this game I'd hazard a guess that the only experience the casting director has had with aussie accents was that episode of the simpsons where they go to australia.

Eh. Canadians were talking shit on Texas, so seems fair that Texans can talk shit on them.

Completely on Topic: Greatest looking Texans being a short list? Clearly, you've not seen the Cowgirl/Cowboy sets. Your mind and libido will be overwhelmed by sexy.

What the hell accent was that supposed to be at the end there? Australian? South African? Kiwi?

Yes, weirdly enough. Good to know I wasn't having a stroke or something. (That or we were both having strokes.)

Yeah this game seems very unpleasant.

that guy in the beginning is some random fucker you never see again. He's only in the intro cutscene to see the 4 main characters of the game(sam B,Logan,Purna and Xian)

Phill La marr does the voice of Sam B and Steve Jay Blum does the voice of John Sinamoi

Now THIS is the Unskippable I know! Glad to see you guys still got it.

I believe that. I actually play some FPS's better while drunk. Probably because of more idontgiveashititis that comes with the condition.

Oh weird. Sorry, I'll look into that.
