Dead Island First Look! Rocketboost Dirtbikes! And Walking Dead Lumbers to Consoles!

You guys heard about a little game called DEAD ISLAND? Oh, you have? Well, get ready to hear about it some more! Destructoid's own Hamza Aziz was lucky enough to get a hands on first look with a super early build of the game, and walked away with some hyperbolic impressions. What do you guys think? Can it live up to the hype? Speaking of Zombies, The Walking Dead is making its way to every platform possible, as is a new Jurassic Park game, from the people who brought you Back to the Future. In other news, Max reveals a deep passion for Motorstorm, mountain dew, and Ducktales. Also, is it Phil Spector, or Warren Spector? I can never remember.

Destructoid show episode 54, TGIFF. Lets go:

Story #1 - Dead Island Hands On First Look OMG. You guys know that game DEAD ISLAND that we all forgot about but then suddenly resurfaced with a mindblowingly awesome trailer? Well, Hamza got to play it. This is his story.
