The Daily Hotness: Too many zombies?

All this news about Dead Island makes me want it that much more. So what if it’s just another zombie survival game? As if that’s a bad thing. Come on. “Too many zombies” is far from a bad thing, especially when it’s handled as well as Dead Island seems to be.

Official Xbox Magazine teases a rebirth of “the best game ever,” Rage has a not-so-online pass, Nick previews Dead Island, Nintendo patents massively singleplayer gaming, voting for Mass Effect 3‘s femshep was a mistake, and more happened on 8/12/11.
