Dead Island was sort of an enigma when it first came out in 2011. On one hand, it received fairly middling reviews from both critics and audiences. On the other hand, it was an open-world RPG/survival horror hybrid with an undoubtedly unique combat system, immediately granting itself status as a cult classic. Deep Silver has deemed both Dead Island and its sequel, Dead Island: Riptide, worthy of an updated remake for modern consoles in Dead Island Definitive Collection. A new trailer for the remake was revealed today, showcasing some of the improvements made to the game.

Just to give you a feel of how voice acting would sound like in the Zelda universe, Zelda Universe has dubbed all cutscenes in Hyrule Warriors for their Hyrule Warriors: The Movie project. They recently added Linkle's Tale, and in doing so they have given much more soul to this dramatic story of a heroine without a sense of direction.
