  1. Dead Island has been number 1 game on my wishlist for a long time because the different gameplay style that Zombie games normally do not have. It was described as a Near Borderlands clone but with its own twist and zombie RPG plot. I bought the game Tuesday day of release at Gamestop and it has been exactly what I expected. It is true that its hold the same type interface as Borderlands, with the Looting, First person style and quest; but it still its own scary additions. So that is why I am excited to play this game above most as of right now. (Recommend for Borderlands lovers)

  2. Is there any comic book about billys adventures? I would like to read it. It would super if you tell me whether there is such a possibility.
