State of Decay is a 3rd person adventure game set in a post apocalyptic open world… with zombies. The goal of the game is not unlike this year’s indie gem Don’t Starve; build a base, collect supplies, and survive for as long as humanly possible. Perma-death heightens the tension as each and every zombie battle could quickly turn you into worm food. In terms of survival horror, State of Decay does something that other titles of the genre have been trying to accomplish for years, it manages to make the losses real, and the horror truly horrifying.
The line to play SWTOR at Comic-Con was at least 12 parsecs in length! With San-Diego sun beating down on their storm trooper armor, fans endured Tatooine-level heat for a chance to play SWTOR early. Heck, some fans enjoyed the experience so much that even after waiting multiple hours for a 15 minute play session they simply hopped right back in line just to play again. Star Wars: The Old Republic is a spectacular game that is going to redefine the way people look at MMOs. Being a Beta-Tester prevents me from saying anything more than… I’ve played it, and I like it. Here are some highlights of SWTOR at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. May the Star-Wars sweat be with you.
