The Daily Hotness: Zombie kids!

The trailer everyone is talking about, Dead Island. Haven’t watch a trailer like this for a game that gave me the chills in a long time. Sure, it doesn’t tell you what the game is all about, but I did get to preview it and you can read up on my thoughts.

We checked out Gemini Wars, Dale is living large in Japan, Hollie chatted with Alex Verrey from Mad Catz, Jim loves Dynasty Warriors 7 so much and more happened on 2/17/11.
