    Dead Island sequel incoming!

    Loved this first one, i hope Riptide has split-screen co-op though!

    I loved the first one up until Act II where upon it turned into a big pile of shit.

    If you hated Act 2, you'd hate the later stuff even more. Seriously, it got far worse.

    I loved the first one right up until I got to the final island where my saves corrupted; I lost all of my progress and couldn't face starting again.

    If things like that get sorted then colour me interested in a sequel.

    I can't help but feel that Frank West would have made much better use of those gas canisters.

    Anyway, I agree about Act II, the entire City of Moresby being a bit gruelling in Dead Island, but this was alleviated in comedy co-op somewhat, and I felt that the acts following it, with perhaps the exception of the Prison meant that the game improved again once II was out of the way.

    Nothing was quite as cool as the sunny, holiday resort feel of the first bit though, although I personally loved the Jungle bits.

    The first game did loads of stuff right, eventually - especially the approach to co-op levelling, after they patched in the dynamic stuff so that the enemies were always your level, regardless of the level of other players.

    It impressed me enough that I'm eagerly awaiting this one, anyway.

    @agparrot - I agree that Act II was a bit of a grind. I never actually did get past it, but that was only due to the summer infestation of other games.

    I've since come back and started the game from scratch. Loving it again.

    I'll definitely complete it, as I love the theme, warts an all.

    Hopefully in time for Riptide too.

    Just playing the first game at the moment so am certainly interested in a sequel. Personally I am loving the first game and am just coming to the end of the Moresby bit I think.

    What characters does everyone use? I have a Sam B wielding a electrically imbued morning star (well, it looks like one to me) in the middle of act 2, but I've started again as Xei Wangy (whatever) to have a crack at bladed weapons.

    Love that char, but the durability is very low on blades

    Tempted to try Purna and Logan just to check out their skills etc

    Hot Rod Bolo Machete now, but I have a backup Big Splitting Axe with one of those electrical dealies attached at 3 or 4X IIRC...Should do about 800+ damage with each hit, but drains stamina like a bastard...

    Yeah, I had a blast with Sam the other night. When the electricity procs, it's doing around 650/700 damage

    Didn't notice the stamina drain

    In fact, I never notice the bloody stamina drain - and I love kicking which isn't helping either :)

    I would think the bladed character would be quite hard as I find when getting mobbed in Moresby you need blunt impact weapons to give yourself some space. You don't get any knock down with bladed weapons I think though of course you can still kick.

    So do the weapons you find change based on what character you are playing? Just wondering in particular on the gun character as guns were virtually non existent before I got to Moresby.

    Yeah, it might be harder in Moresby as blade. Depends if you can still sever limbs on special infected (read: probably not)

    I think the weapons are the same drop rate as everything else.

    I've just started a quick Purna character and am deliberately going straight to the pool area to find that quest to escort a chap to get the revolver as a reward.

    Then I'll need to get the ammo crafting up and a place where I can loot money to get a shitload of ammo.

    And I forgot that guns don't lose durability, or use stamina so that's a plus.

    It's still going to be act II where you use them more primarily though

    She's ok with blade weapons too

    Good read here covering a lot of the playstyle for her

    I played solo through Moresby as a blade thrower and it was kinda hard alright. Throwing my entire stash of blades into a few enemies and being stranded on top of cars with only one or two melee weapons to get by.

    Thing is if you stay on top of cars you can reach down and retrieve your blades from the zombies that are trying to get to you.

    Hmm, that doesn't bode well for me then, as I was struggling with Sam with all kinds of blunt weapons

    But I may suck

    Moresby was a struggle, just remember that cars are you're very best friends! I'd always plan routes via cars roofs if at all possible.

    That's if you're playing solo, in co-op you have no such issues.

    Yeah, I only play solo, and didn't use the cars enough

    /slaps self

    It was the rams that were doing my head in. Or is it the chargers. Either way, I couldn't time my side step effectively enough.

    I bloody will this time though!

    According to the front page, it seems like the sequel will pretty much be more of the same.

    Im actually ok with that.
