Sar’s ShOcktober// Zombified Conversations

Day 25. So I’m currently sat in on the XBox360 dashboard, in a party chat with @folicacid aka Ian, and we’re just chatting about the usual – gaming, music, the zombie apocalypse, and ultimate downfall of civilisation as we know it. Typical Thursday night conversation. Now, when I say ‘that game trailer‘, I am of course referring to the Dead Island trailer…yes, that trailer.

I wrote it off when I first played it, as I was being impatient. Once you stop shouting at the game for you sucking so badly, it’s actually loads of fun. Mainly due to Mark Hamill’s voice as The Watcher. That voice…*guh!* So yea. Darksiders 1 (and 2 actually) are awesome games, just give them a decent try.
