    Who's playing Dead Island: Riptide?

    I played the first DI and loved it. I know speculations were that its "more of the same", but wanted to see of anyone here is playing it and how they're liking it.

    I'm thinking about picking it up tomorrow.

    I reviewed it for PSU and recently completed it, minor bugs in it are annoying but they don't stop you enjoying the game. The bottom line is that if you enjoyed the first you are going to love Riptide.

    Im playing it now, I love the improvements they've made. Only weapons count in the inventory slots, no longer will medkits, alcohol, and throwables count as a "slot". Love it.

    Only things I hate so far is the Weapon Wheel feels harder to use, selecting and even putting weapons into slots on it is not as easy as I recall.
    Zombies seem to just pop in, was running and jump+kicked+smashed a zombies head in and a zombie popped in infront of me. >.>

    It feels like zombies hit harder now, though I did import my lvl 50 and the hardness might be due to lack of good weapons. Im in my groove now though, chopping off limbs and stuff with ease. Currently me and "Dead ZOnes" dont mix, I went into one an within 5 seconds I got mobbed by Infected. Not cool.


    Also, I cant recall but did Thugs and normal Walkers always sound alike? Im really getting my sounds mixed up now, I thought a Walker was a Thug, and an Suicider was an Infected

    Tackling a dead zone requires lots of explosives or molotovs,once you gets gun and put the electric shock mod on it they become easier.

    Ninja zombies who appear from nowhere seems to be a bug and quite an annoying one at that but luckily not game breaking

    Good info to hear! That makes me really happy about the molotovs and medkits not taking up slots

    I got paid today so I'm going to get it after work

    Started yesterday and I just got to the survival camp. LOTS of exploring when you get to the island. I'm liking it. I got the special edition which came with the BBQ blade. Awesome!

    Thinking of getting it but only did 2 hours of DI. Will probably try and get more done on DI then get Riptide.

    I felt a great strength of the game was the large world you had to explore and there was always a quest or an interesting location ready to distract me !

    Definitely! Very easy to get distracted and start finding hidden areas with weapons and supplies for mods

    I am wondering this as well. I did not really enjoy the first game. The footage of Riptide looks good, but I really hated how scarce ammo was in the first game.

    If you have a friend to co-op with, then it's a lot of fun. The first game was quite difficult as well for the most part, although it suddenly became easy.

    Loved the original, love this game.

    Some are mad that this game isn't more of an upgrade....but that is what I like about it....it is basically the same game expanded

    Again, I love that

    It's alot of fun. Lots of exploring on your own through the map and finding lots of supplies is great. The dead zones are really cool. I went in my first one today and it was pretty tough.

    To anyone that's thinking of buying this game that played and enjoyed the first one, get it!

    As usual Ive been exploring/doing sidequests (Team quests are kind of a pita, since they all want some items but you dont get any clues in what general area to look) and im still only in Chapter 2 due to lack of game time but I got a few questions:

    -When do you start getting Blade Weapon Blueprints> Everything thus far has been Blunt, minus the BBQ Blade.. but that is limited
    -When do Katanas make an appearance?
    -Any of you find the "Special Shop" that you get with the special edition? (Not even sure how you know your getting the xp booster lol)

    I fairly sure I was sick of katanas by the time I got to the city, powered them all up with electricity though and they made a nice addition to my flaming broom ! Also the city is rammed with blueprints hidden all over the place and a vendor who sells at least five that I can remember.

    Can't help with the special shop much other than some sites are saying its a female in Halai, but don't remember much special about her .
