Huh. I missed that Spec Ops: The Line studio Yager is handling development on Dead Island 2. That knowledge combined with the excellent CG trailer has me mildly interested.

Here's Max sharing his thoughts after seeing an early demo at E3. He's feeling similarly guarded, but says the tone is improved and there's enhancements to weapon crafting -- you'll be able to build stuff like a motorized pitchfork, a weed-whacker with blades on it, and a fiery crossbow.

Dead Island 2 isn't due out until spring 2015 where it'll be available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, so we'll see how it progresses from here. Can't wait to see that motion-captured cat.

California is not an island, but here are my Dead Island 2 impressions

You'll be able to explore Los Angeles, Santa Monica, some beaches, a golf course, and maybe even more in the final version of Dead Island 2. But what Deep Silver was showing at gamescom 2014 was pretty limited. I only got to run around a small, closed-off section of the Los Angeles suburbs. It was a short taste of what the Southern California zombie-slaughtering life is like. more

Explode zombie heads into raspberry jam with Dead Island 2

This game is a bloody messy. In a good way. I've never been too keen on Dead Island, but maybe with Spec Ops developer Yager on Dead Island 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One), this will make for a good time. Maybe some white ph...more

You could theoretically make Deep Silver package a real zombie with Dead Island 2 Collector's Edition

Remember the last time we talked about a Dead Island collector's edition and it was a disembodied female torso? I don't think Deep Silver wants to go that route this time, so they're turning to the community to find out what ...more

Dead Island 2 wants to be cool and kickass

The debut of Dead Island led us to believe that it would tell a very dramatic and serious story about the horrors of the zombie apocalypse. That’s not quite the game we ended up with, so it’s refreshing to know th...more

Geometry Wars 3 may look different, but it feels right

There was some initial skepticism when it came to Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions and its so-called "3D action." For starters, it's been several years since the last games entered our lives to rekindle old leaderboard feuds. Ther...more

Here are some more Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions screens

We have already seen a little bit of the "full 3D action" of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, and it looks like those lucky attendees of PAX Prime can get some hands-on time with it this weekend. Stupid lucky jerks who I love hav...more

Now I know why Devolver picked up A Fistful of Gun

It takes a certain kind of appeal for Devolver Digital to add a title to its stable of games. While the indie-friendly publisher doesn't necessarily have an underlying style that unite all of its games, there is a common them...more
