I can't say I've ever really heard of this game.

Despite the fact that it's yet another zombie game...it looks like it could be pretty good. I'll have to keep an eye on it leading up to April.

This game's been in development hell for a long time now, no expectation it'll be any good.

It looks like it has some big potential but at the same time, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a massive disappointment. It has some nice visuals but they don't show enough to tell me if it's fun. Also I'm weary of pre-order bonuses like the one to drive further on a tank of gas because it hearkens back to those MMO grinds that are basically "make this part of the game less of a pain in the ass than it normally is." It's tough to make something like that enjoyable. Am I going to hate running out of gas all of the time in this game? Offering this pre-oder bonus certainly gives me that impression.

The gas tank upgrade is listed as "Gas Tank Upgrade #1", which implies there are multiple levels of upgrades. Preordering essentially gives you a slight jump on the progression, which isn't uncommon and rarely a huge deal.

I think you're missing my point. I'm just saying that the fact that they offer this as a pre-order bonus just draws attention to an aspect of the game I'm likely to not enjoy. In that regard, what they are offering as a bonus is more likely to make me hesitate to buy the game. I'm not saying it's a big deal. I have way more entertainment options than I have free time. It doesn't take a big deal for me to pass on a game.

Is that Jeffrey Dean Morgan narrating in the Fairwell Wilderness trailer?

Looks fun enough. I think they announced it a bit early to have some stuff to show off at E3 and that made it seem like it has been dragging out, but I think it will still be a decent zombie killing game. Like Last of Us, but without all the stupid back story crap.

So as terrible as Last of Us? Lamest ending ever. If you don't count HL2 that is.

See the part where I mention choices in Bioware games also don't matter in the Div2 thread, I was specifically referring to ME3. But yes, ME3's ending was also shit.

I just remember seeing the gameplay trailer for this where this poor fuck gets chased by a billion zombies or so.

I thought, I may wanna watch someone else play.. but my idea of fun isn't spending a couple of hours virtually running for my life.
