Between Vaas and Handsome Jack, this may be my favorite year for video game villains in a while.

Yeah, Vaas is definitely one of the best villains this year. I also dig the drug fantasies, total eye candy.

I would actually go for "Dead Island resembles Far Cry 1"

Haha well that explains it.

Far Cry 1 was great, but as mentioned the mutant things were pretty dumb. I remember playing that maxed out though and just thinking "oh my god this game is beautiful" haha, how times change.

2 was OK, honestly though I didn't finish it but I've actually bought and sold it on 3 times because I fancied playing it, it does somethings right but overall it's pretty flawed.

3 looks good, I was going to get it yesterday but I'm going to hold off until it's a little cheaper. One of my mates bought it though and he says it's awesome and that the world is absolutely massive.

Anyone who has it on xbox, how is it? Seen some reviews and I know the core game is like 9/10, which is great, but I've seen no mention of how it performs on console?

I played it on PS3 and it was pretty solid. Obviously the graphical power of the game was held back due to hardware limitations but it wasn't the end of the world for me.

Ah, sounds good then. FPS on console games is the killer for me, would much rather have lower-res textures, detailed models, particle effects, yada yada than a dodgy framerate

Frame rate doesn't seem too bad on the ps3. The cut scenes are poorly compressed however.

Yeah, the cutscenes being laggy was a bummer.

I am in love with this game. Storyline is awesome and engrossing, graphics are pretty great, love how vast the open-world feels. This will definitely end up in my top 5 of the year. Such a great game. Excited to try the Co-Op after I beat it.

Anyone know if you are allowed to wander the open world after the storyline is over? Without spoilers obviously..I'm really hoping I can get a chance to explore it more.
