Posted on September 13, 2011, Ben Richardson We’ve Got the Hilarious Dead Island “Fist of the Dead” Mod
By any standard, Dead Island has been a disappointment. Release code that was both unfinished and controversial started the ball rolling, but it was the game design itself that did it in. GameFront’s Phil Hornshaw has an eloquent take in today’s post-mortem.
Thankfully, when you’re playing a PC game, if you don’t like the gameplay, you can just change it! The best way to mod Dead Island that has emerged in the week since release is “Fist of the Dead Star,” which changes Dead Island gameplay to resemble ridiculous, steroidal chop-socky in homage to the “Fist of the North Star” series of manga and games. The video, embedded below, of players beating zombies to death with their bare hands (accompanied by Fist’s distinctive sound effects) has been taking the internet by storm.
