Blue isn't scary

Dead Island has teased something that I really hope it has the ability to deliver on. The trailer featured a zombie child be tossed out of a window, but killing a zombie child is so much worse than killing anything else that it could never appear in a game (because the ESRB has no balls). I knew going in that it was not going to actually happen, so I was not expected anything to even potentially raise an eyebrow in unexpected interest. Surprise, surprise, last night I ran across a recording that described a zombie gorilla. This may not sound like much, but remember, a gorilla will kick your ass even before being undead, and I sincerely doubt that dying and coming back did much to improve its mood. I am really hoping for something like this:

Best. Bear. Ever.

That's a tough act to follow, but I really think that a zombie gorilla chasing me through the jungle could provide a little lift to a game whose lack of real penalty and unfair ways of killing me has gotten rather boring. I seem to remember zombie gorillas in something else...

Oh yeah. Congo. Now that was some grade A+ shit right there.

Yes, I know that my topic is wandering more than usual. Dead Island has not given me anything new to be happy or complain about; just wave after wave of similar zombies. Sometimes I kill them. Sometimes they kill me, and then I come back after losing some money. It's been twenty hours of this and I do not know how much more I can take.
