A vacation resort island has turned into a zombie/flesh eating Octoberfest and your on the lunch menu. The island is huge, plenty of space to explore-well done graphics. I am a big fan of Left for Dead, but the creators of Dead Island surpassed the 4 person coop restrictions and limitations of a small map. This game provides quests, customizable weaponry, vehicular customization/combat, RPG all bundled into a 1st person shooter. Plus, there are lots of different kinds of zombies to remove from the gene pool. Fast, slow, powerful, special-running around in bikinis. It's pretty creepy just wandering around the island-you never know when a zombie will lunge at you.
The characters/survivors are pretty cool, not like L4D2 where you learn to hate some of the characters. There are 2 guys and 2 gurls to choose from. Good back ground story and fun situations. There is no capture the flag or other coop factions, just simple "survival" and complete quests to advance the story. You can choose any of the 4 characters-they each have different skill sets. This game can be played with others-which makes it fun; but single player is also a hoot!
Anyhoo, great game, worth every penny if you like gaming and want to try something different. Thought I would share if anyone is interested in trying something different and new. enjoy.
If I were to score it 1-10: 8 It's not a perfect game, but still well made.

True Meaning of Memorial Day Posted 5/31/2010 1:33:41 PM
Memorial Day honors men and women who died while serving in the American military. According to history.com, it was originally referred to as Decoration Day because its central form of celebration had loved ones decorating Civil War soldiers’ graves with flowers.
Gen. John A. Logan, who headed an organization of former sailors and soldiers, is credited with declaring the first such celebration on May 5, 1868. Gen. James Garfield, who was later to become President of the United States, gave a speech at Arlington National Cemetery that day, after which 20,000 Union and Confederate graves were decorated by 5,000 in attendance.
Several towns in both the north and the south claim to be the birthplace of Memorial Day. Pres. Lyndon Johnson, in 1966, awarded the honor to Waterloo, New York. According to history.com, the President chose this community because it had celebrated the day annually since 1866 by closing businesses and having its residents decorate the graves of soldiers with flowers and flags.
After World War I, Memorial Day observances were expanded to include those who had died in all America’s wars. It wasn’t until 1971 that Congress granted Memorial Day national holiday status and cemented the annual event as the last Monday in May.
For many, Memorial Day is a time of relaxation, getting with family and enjoying a cookout. There is nothing wrong with this. But we should also make sure we remember the real reason behind it all and that without the sacrifice of those the day honors we would not be free to enjoy living in what is still the home of the brave and the land of the free.
Dear friend, Go with the flow Be thoughtful of those downstream Slow down and meander Follow the path of least resistance for rapid success
Immerse yourself in nature, trickling streams, roaring waterfalls, sparkles of light dancing on water Delight in life's adventures around every bend Let difficulties stream away
Live simply and gracefully in your own True Nature moving, flowing, allowing, serene and on course It takes time to carve the beauty of the canyon Rough waters become smooth Go around the obstacles Stay current
I decide to water my garden today. As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.
As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier.
I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.
I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full.
So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first..
But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.
I take my check book off the table, and see that there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Pepsi I'd been drinking.
I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Pepsi aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.
The Pepsi is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need water.
I put the Pepsi on the counter and discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.
I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.
I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I'll be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.
I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.
So, I set the remote back on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill
As I go to put the wet towels in the trash, There is a knock on the door, I set the wet towels on the counter, open the door.
A delivery man hands me a package and paper to sign; then tells me I have the hose running, watering the driveway.
I set the package on the porch table and start toward the car, remembering I planned to wash the car.
I see my garden needs water and walk over to check the condition of the soil. and decide to water the garden because the soil is dry.
Hearing the sound of water, I decide I should use the restroom first.
As I start toward the restroom, I notice a package on the porch table that I set down when the delivery guy came by earlier,
I decide to open the package before I water the garden . . .
