Tomorrow sees the release of Dead Island Riptide, the followup to 2011′s Dead Island. Our glorious and illustrious Adam has already given his amazing and thought-provoking review, but I’m here to let you know that the soundtrack to the video game is also coming out on the morrow. Composed by Pawel Blaszczak, the soundtrack features 25 tracks of island zombie killing goodness. Pre-orders are available here and the digital download will be available for purchase on Amazon, iTunes, and other digital music sites. You can also listen to samples of the entire album here. Head on below for a trailer of the game. READ MORE
Deep Silver and Koch Media chose their zombie loving couple contest winners. The couple, Jennifer Jones 27, and Rob Blackmore 31, will have beach zombie themed wedding paid for in full. They will also be getting a a Caribbean Honeymoon paid for as well. The wedding will feature most normal things you get at a traditional wedding except with a Dead Island spin. The coolest part, an undead mariachi band. Jennifer will be driven to the ceremony in a custom Dead Island Riptide pick up truck (hopefully it’s classy and comfortable inside). Head past the break to see the video that won them the contest! And don’t forget you can pick up Riptide on April 23rd on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.

A lot of people don’t realize that Best Buy has a “Gamer’s Club“. It’s basically the answer to Game Stop’s Power Up Rewards program, only in my opinion Gamer’s Club is way better. Basically you pay $15.00 for a year subscription. The $15.00 pays for itself in no time flat, especially if you’re an avid gamer. If you head past the break I’ve included a list of everything you get with the subscription. But here’s the best part. For a bunch of upcoming games right now, if you pre-order and pick up the games within 7 days of their release, you get a 20 dollar Best Buy Reward Zone certificate. I myself just pre-ordered 4 games on the list, and so long as I get them within a week of their releases I’m making a total of $80.00 on the deal. Head past the break for the list of games, and more Gamer’s Club info.
It’s that time of the year again, folks! I hope you aren’t too tired from all the egg nogging, snowman crafting, slay bell jingling, and sloppy mistletoe kissing you undoubtedly put yourself through last month, because we have some voting to do. For the unfamiliar, the FEAR Awards is something we started here at Bloody Disgusting back in 2009 when we realized there are a ton of best and worst games lists and awards, but none that gave much attention to the horror genre. We decided to create this so we could celebrate the many horror (and horror adjacent) games that release every year.
This year we’re doing things a little differently. Every day we’re going to post a category and a batch of nominees for you to vote on, then when the votes are tallied we’ll reveal the results. Today we’re asking which horror game that’s releasing this year has you the most excited — vote after the break!
When it comes to collector’s editions, do you prefer key chains over branded headsets? How about notepads versus luggage straps? If you feel strongly about any of that, now’s your chance to get your voice heard. Publisher Deep Silver is looking to the fans to help decide on the contents in the Dead Island: Riptide collector’s edition, and if the survey is anything to go by, the possibilities are practically endless. Of course, many of the options aren’t terribly exciting, that is, unless you’re particularly fond of microfiber screen cleaning cloths, pillow cases, or beach balls. If you’re interested, you should definitely go fill it out.
Publisher Deep Silver has finally unveiled Dead Island: Riptide after their little tease back in June. Much of it is still under wraps, but it looks like fans of the original game will have plenty to love here, as much like its predecessor, Riptide will take place on an island–near the location the first game was set in–and will let you bring over your character(s) from Dead Island into the spin-off. Deep Silver is adamant this is not a sequel, which could mean the mysterious Dead World trademark they filed last November could be the “real” sequel. Either way, we’re getting more Dead Island next year when the game ships for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Head past the break for more info and some screenshots.
Publisher Deep Silver is about to make good on their tease about the inevitable Dead Island sequel as they’ve confirmed Riptide will be officially unveiled at PAX Prime next week. It’s about time. They’ll be publicly showing off the game for the very first time at their booth (#6309, for anyone lucky enough to be attending the event) alongside their other title, Sacred 3. In the meantime, I suggest checking out our Dead Island: Riptide wish list.
Our Dead Days of Summer extravaganza continues! Dead Island: Riptide was unveiled, in title only, back in June. Two months later and we still know nothing about it other than the very distinct possibility that it will take place on an island that may or may not have a few zombies inhabiting it. Other than that, who knows? Going by what little we know (i.e. a title), I’ve compiled a list of things I’d like to see from the sequel before its potential official unveiling at Gamescom later this month. Check them out after the break! READ MORE
