Dead Island
In Stores This Week Around the World
Written Monday, July 02, 2012 By Lee Bradley

The summer drought hits particularly hard this week. If my bleary Monday morning eyes (and the EB Games and GameStop websites) are to be believed then neither Australia nor North America can expect anything new in their local video game store over the next seven days. Not a sausage. 

Europe, meanwhile, sees only the amusingly titled Dead Island Game of the Year Edition, while Asia gets Max Anarchy (Anarchy Reigns over here, when it eventually comes out), a re-issue of Earth Defense Force Insect Armageddon and the disappointing Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.

Still, at least it gives us time to finish up with Spec Ops: The Line. Turns out it’s rather blummin’ good.

Who in the flying dragon turd gave Dead Island game of the year? I'd rather be hit in the face by said excrement than play that again.

@7 can be arranged. Had a terrible curry last night also.

Dead island isn't bad, might rent the GOTY edition.

Waiting for sleeping dogs, not much else until September.

Max Anarchy sounds like a stunt car driver. I love it.

So Sega delayed it due to competition? I dont see much competition there Mr Sega and like the talking penguin, id have bought it as well.

Dead Island is a fun game. Would be a great game, were it not for the many, many glitches, and game breaking bugs (30+hr save log corrupt)

"the disappointing Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier." You're joking, right? Nice "personal" opinion, there, Mr. Unbiased Journalist. This is why x360a will never be more than a social nerd hub. I bet you haven't even completed GRFS, have you, Lee? The story, a few hours into co-op/multiplayer? If not, then stfu. I'm tired of you idiots low-balling perfectly fine games. It's these same unrealistic views that saw Sniper Elite V2 get better reviews than GRFS from some sources, even though it didn't have nearly as much bang for the buck. I'd like to know what oils your mental gears as you write this jibberish. Your only saving grace of legitimacy is your Dragon's Dogma review.

"Still, at least it gives us time to finish up with Spec Ops: The Line. Turns out it’s rather blummin’ good."

And I just noticed that. Ffs, I swear I'm about to go mental reading this. While I haven't played Spec Ops yet, I have played GRFS and love it. And the Metascore for GRFS is 79. 76 for your "blummin' good" Spec Ops. Disappointment? Gtfo. -butthurting over-

@23 , 25

Disappointing

Adjective:
Failing to fulfill someone's hopes or expectations.

Also I like your comment :

This is why x360a will never be more than a social nerd hub.

I thought GRFS was disappointing, I don't think it's a bad game by any means, I just think the Advanced Warfighters were better, hence Future Soldier disappointing.

Future Soldier was another unremarkable military 3PS whose only innovative feature was the gun customization, which was still just alright.

Actually "Test Drive Ferrari" and "Let's Dance" comes out this week, even though I don't think anyone really cares for them.

@26 The fact you have over 130K doesn't exactly support the case that you aren't a nerd.

Hell, I can't even remember where all my posts came from. Probably the PSU forums or something.

@33, read #26's post again, slowly, take a moment to realise what he's talking about, maybe check out the previous posts he's referring to, and then (and only then) post a comment about it.

@34 I think #33 was somply implying that we're all nerds. I wasn't singling out anyone imparticular, as I myself am one of those nerds. My point was taken out of context on that and that's that the opinions of these so-called "reviewers" are pointless. I was starting to trust x360a for my news/reviews, but it's gotten 'way' too opinionated as of late. Just those little comments are enough to spark my ire. He chose to be a staff member here and he should carry that branding with some dignity and keep his opinions out of his "news" articles and instead take them to the forums, like everybody else.
