Dead Island Meets Mirror's Edge?

(Skip to 4:50 for the action)

Dying Light wouldn't have caught my attention at all accept that I accidentally ran across some gameplay footage that showed free-running remarkably similar to Mirror's Edge (which I loved). It also appears that you only have the ability to melee enemies (no firepower) which is similar to Dead Island. Then, I came across this multiplayer blurb in the wiki:

"Online multiplayer has been announced for up to 4 players in the co-op mode... there will be challenges throughout the world for players to engage in for experience. Two challenges were showcased with one being a fight to kill as many zombies as possible and the other being a race to an airdrop."

What do you guys think? Any interest?

Side note: I will have GTA V on Xbox One soon and Sunset Overdrive is a LOT more fun than I expected.

Full Circle

I know we initially hated on Revenge for the ability to ram through traffic without consequence, but holy crap is this perfect for a 3 year-old monster. He went with the chronic mobile because apparently the color blue plus anything with flames equals awesome. Luckily he has not yet discovered the contents of its glovebox.

In all seriousness I forgot how much I love burnout. This is amazingly fun compared to any racers I've played since. With that said, we seriously need to get some games going for old times sake.

Update: The fact that they are playing this instead of Mariokart HAS to say something. Quick, someone send this pic to EA/Critereon!
