Dead Island Riptide Discussion



Tomorrow is the day. I am about to start my Steam pre-load!

I read there will be less guns which made the first one too easy. More melee weapons and more variety of those weapons.

Apparently you can import a character from the first one, keeping the level. I'll probably play it sometime in the middle of the week.

Mindless co-op zombie horde killing.

You didn't play the first one? I think it can be had for $5 and is well worth a play through.

Ahh man. I played the first one on Xbox. That still doesn't justify $60 for it on Xbox vs the $30 I paid for it on PC.

Well that sort of sucks. I liked the melee weapons a lot more. Guns got boring really fast. I was just reading an article that said less but they only played the first hour of it.

I used guns sparingly anyway.

Give me an electric machete and poison katana any day

Way more fun. The pistols weren't overpowered but the ARs really made it too easy.

re: Dead Island Riptide Discussion


ohh i agree with you and MJ. make no doubt about it.

my favaorite weapon was a Katana I got, late in the game. One shot.



part of the reason they were boring is because you basically had a AK47 and some really shitty pistols.
And the guns just weren't effective. It would take a half a clip to mow down 1 zombie.

Why put up with the wear and tear and hunting down sparse ammo when you have badass melee weapons?



From everything I've read the Dev team has catered RipTide to the communities suggestions. So, I'm looking forward to anything new they add.

There are so many things so wrong with Dead Island: Riptide that I’m not even sure where to begin.

Somehow, things went in reverse. Riptide feels like it could have been the first in the series, simply because it is an absolute mess of a game.

I forgot what mod # it was but I got a blueprint for a badass knife. One stab and the zombies head blew up. Don't remember how it fared with the larger zombies

I can hear the thugs now. RRRRRRAAAAAAAWWWWWWWRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!

I used to mow thru them and the rams

You can get the new one and the game of the year edition of number one for $40 on Steam right now. Plus you get some pre order DLC with it if bought today.

KK, what system are you getting it on?
