You know, everyone on the web is talking about how awesome this trailer is and, after seeing it, I’ve got to admit – it’s FRIGGIN GREAT!  Despite the animation not being terribly all that great, it’s a really well done commercial, emotional wise and musically.

But what the hell is Dead Island?  Their only page is a Facebook page, but pictures of the game (check IGN) appear to make the game look like a sort of Dead Rising on an island.  I’m not entirely sure on the developer behind it, which isn’t a good sign, but you never know.  Sounds a bit like a third-person Left 4 Dead also, with the ability to team up with other players to take on the zombie horde, and a story that involves uncovering the origin of the zombie outbreak.
