Techland seem to think they can breathe new life into the mutated, infected and somewhat overplayed zombie genre with their new game, Dead Island: Riptide — a spin-off of the original title in which you play the role of a survivor immune to the zombie virus, trying to escape yet another island. While the first game was fresh and lively, the sad truth is that the new game seems like a tired old clown performing the same old tricks in the hope of a new laugh.

Man, I am so pumped to check out this new Dead Island DLC. A little belated, I thought, but I mastered the art of fly-kicking walkers in the face in the first one and enjoyed that very much a lot. What the hey, hey.
So I make a terrible faux pas when I sit down to check out its co-op by declaring way too out loud, “What took this DLC so long? Purna fly-kicks, aw yiss, youthful internet exclamation, hashtag, I’m too old to be presenting myself this way.”
“Dude, it’s not DLC,” someone hisses. “For heaven’s sake, keep your voice down.”
