I’m very puzzled by the inexplicable popularity of the out of nowhere rise of the zombie apocalypse genre. Seriously, since when has this genre become popular? I highly doubt it was because of Resident Evil series. Heck they even stopped using zombies in their 2 recent games (I’m not counting spin-offs).
Anyway, my thoughts on DI in short: An okay game for multiplayer, bugs and all, and it’s much better than Oblivion and Fallout 3, but not as good as Fallout: New Vegas.
Now, ranting aside it’s time for the main event:
How do you get a non-zombie apocalypse fan interested in a ZA themed game? Beautiful women as the protagonist and no generic guys who covered wars in it (You know who I’m talking about). Basically add an over the top protagonist in an over the top genre. Kinda like Dead Rising 2 or Left 4 Dead 2, except with an anime girl inspired character as the lead. It’s like a GOOD Buffy the Vampire Slayer game. Hopefully the game will be even better than the Oneechanbara series.
Lastly I HOPE this game will live up to my praise or else I’ll have to eat my shorts and cry due to this rant/preview having been for naught. Lollipop chainsaw hits stores in 2012.
