[Rumor] Dead Island might be getting a GOTY Edition
It appears that Dead Island could be the latest big budget title to recieve a special "Game of the Year Edition." Well, that's if a British Board of Film Classification rating listing (which has since been removed) is to be believed at least.
A reporter for Siliconera managed to find the listing before it was removed, but other than a supposed June 30 UK release date, no other details about the possible release could be found. However, since this is a GOTY Edition, it could be assumed that all of the game's previously released DLC (Ryder White, Bloodbath Arena, The Ripper) would be a part of the package.
The game's publisher (Deep Silver) was reached for comment but declined to confirm whether or not this new version of the game is coming.
Will the prospect of this deluxe package be enough to lure more gamers to Banoi? We'll just have to wait and see.
Much better. Now that's a good list. I love the conflict desert storm series, and was tempted to put it in my list.
Deus ex hr came out last year... and Xbot? Even though i just said that i got a PC and a PS3 because of how downhill the system has gotten?
Oh and i updated my list. Be sure to see how generic they all are because they are not nintendo games or square enix.
deus ex human revolution is the new one, so you put a game you'd never played as your favorite.
I still dont see you as much of a screwattack gamer, but I am glad you support the site. If your list had pokemon on it I would have left you alone, even kotor. your list looks ripped off gamerankings top 10 highest rated, and it just seems odd to me for an xbot to be a girl.
Hmm lets see...
Deus Ex (HR) Not Generic Modern Warfare, I wrote that list before 3 came out so, thats fine. DK Country the only nintendo game i had as a kid, so yeah... Batman Arkham Asylum, not generic GTA, Red Dead Redemption, not generic Gears Of War, defined cover based shooters not generic Halo, defined first person shooters, not generic, and also the game that got me into gaming. I had a sega before and a gameboy, but i only had about 4 games and was about 7 years old. My dad then got a wierd modded ps1 which could only play the 4 games that came with it and all sucked. Then there was a ps2 that broke after a couple years, and was my brothers. Then i actually got my first console, the xbox. PLayed the hell out of halo, kotor, conflict, lord of the rings, what ever pre owned cheap thing i could get my hands on.
Then i got the xbox 360, which i loved, and at this point i stopped trading games in anymore cos i had enough money. I played the hell out of it until about 2 years ago when exclusives stopped coming out, and it was all kinect shit. I then bought a gaming PC after playing left 4 dead, and was currently looking forward to swtor. After a year and about 50 game purchases later, i decided to get a ps3, 2 months ago. due to how many exclusives it has.
But naaaaaw you right, i TOTALLY only play cod and halo with my guy friends, and im a new gamer. I also brag about pokemans LOL 24/7.
Seriously dude, if you think iim like that why would i be on screwattack, and be sending them money every month? Man, i wasnt doing a 'My top 10 favorite games list' I was making an account and just tried to fill the favorite game box with whatever i could think of at the time
The ones you listed were very weak on the stat building and were much more into the generic shooter genre then the rpg. They also lack the same level of freedom one would come to expect in an rpg. It was a list full of generic modern games making me think your either a really new gamer or your the "gamer girl that hangs out with the guys and plays cod and halo type". Honestly I was kinda surprised you made a list of favorite games on screwattack and only had one nintendo game. Plus its probably the saddest of all when you place deus ex on the list and specify your talking only about human revolution. I am glad you support the site, but I still stand by my original comment.... what ever it was.
This was very mixed,either people really loved it or they hated the crap out of it so having a GOTY confuses me.
In the loosest sense, they did. From Cracked.
Because Soren Bowie is an idiot.
what? who gave them a GOTY?
Now to be fair thats not always strictly accurate. in the majority of cases a company will take any one random website awarding it their "Game of the year" and therefore give it a GOTY status down the line. It is in many cases rarely from big players and rarely given GOTY status in the same year it was awarded one. In cases such sa LBP it was given a GOTY edition what 3 years after it came out? Therefore dont take GOTY as a big deal, if it gives more DLC and you dont have it buy it, dont take it as any great level of quality however :o.
Anyway they only need to be given a single GOTY award, they dont need multiple :p.
Um.. i play RPGs. I dont know what you mean by 'Real RPGs' IM assming you may mean Kingdom Hearts, which is a JRPG so no, or Kingdoms of amalur, which came out after dead island so... not relevant.
I mean, if you assume i dont play rpgs because i only happend to listed 2 of them last year when i did it, then you dont either as you actually only listed one RPG.
To get a GotY edition, you need to win GotY awards geniuses.
This qualified for GOTY?
I guess it's fine to have a package giving all the available DLC for a game on a single disc, but don't call it “Game of the year” when it isn't the opinion of a majority of people who purchased it.
Nah, as long as you have absolutely no shame, you can release a GOTY release for anything.
Dead Island was EASILY one of the buggiest games to come out Last year... and if you were unlucky enough to buy the PC version it was also one of the most broken & unplayable.
There is a reason the game's nickname is Dev Island. Because the American PC version was LITERALLY a half ported 360 DEV BUILD, and essentially a beta at launch! I got so damn tired of the Glitches i deleted my install and have no plans of reinstalling. This is coming from someone who had the game preordered. The PC version was so damn bad at launch that you could have taken it back to the store and gotten a full refund, something that is all but impossible for PC games, BECAUSE it was a faulty product that did not work as advertised, with key advertised selling points of the game being unusable. Not only that but, people with the wrong GPU, CPU, Sound Card, and/or OS couldn't play the game at all...
the 360 version was from all accounts the "most playable" version... the PS3 & PC both got broken ports with the PC version being the WORST
Dont get why they wont make a goty for this. The game was a Huge disappointment in my opinion.
I loved the game and didnt encounter any bugs on 360 version, mind you my ps3 version (i bought both) didnt save the game for me first time I played.
I was curious as your advantage as to your video game sense, -Halo, Gears Of War, Command and Conquer, Mass Effect, Deus Ex (HR), Modern Warfare, DK Country, Batman Arkham Asylum, GTA, Red Dead Redemption. Other stuff CANT THINK. -
I notice the lack of any real rpg, so I dont think your comments should have any relevance as you dont play games like this and probably sucked.
I cant wait, this was definitely one of my favorites of 2011, and I traded it in so hopefully this will come with the dlc and be cheaper then what I got back for the game.
To be fair its the exact game as skyrim but in this one you have to actually use your brain, and supports vehicles and 4 player co-op.
