As a launch title for the PlayStation 5 it doesn't get much better than a follow-up to one of the best superhero games of all time.
Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales Review
Is it game enough to fill the Gerudo Valley-sized gap in our collective souls? Can it quench the unquenchable heart that lies still, awaiting the return of Link in Breath of the Wild 2?

Following the success of Deep Silver and Techland's recently released zombie shooter Dead Island, motion picture group Lionsgate have announced that they have secured the film rights and a Dead Island movie is now in the early development stage with Producers Sean Daniel (The Mummy, Tombstone, Dazed and Confused) and Stefan Sommerfield attached.
Like the trailer that will serve as its primary creative inspiration, the film DEAD ISLAND will be an innovation of the zombie genre because of its focus on human emotion, family ties and non-linear storytelling. Said Drake of the property's acquisition, "Like the hundreds of journalists and millions of fans who were so passionate and vocal about the Dead Island trailer, we too were awestruck." He continued, "This is exactly the type of property we're looking to adapt at Lionsgate - it's sophisticated, edgy, and a true elevation of a genre that we know and love. It also has built in brand recognition around the world, and franchise potential."
The referenced trailer is of course that impressive cinematic announcement video, that gathered a lot of attention when it landed back in February. For a re-cap, hit the embed below or click here for the HD option.

In other words it will have a crowbared love interest where the guy gets the girl at the end because he saved someone from zombies somewhere. I dunno I havn't seen a good zombie movie in a long while and I doubt this will change that.

I'm still holding out for 1-2-3-4-5-6 being able to select weapons, instead of that f*****g wheel.

Or has someone fixed that via a mod already? (If so, link?)
