So I've decided to pre-order zombie bait.

Does that make me a bad person?

AS long as they fix the fighting I'm good with it. I hated that zombies became more powerful and required much more bashing to go down.

I see some people showing concern that it's basically like a glorified expansion-pack. I personally don't mind that, since the core ideas of Dead Island were great. What *I* am concerned about, is whether they will make a worthy PC-version or not. Dead Island was an abysmal port, with serious performance issues, a nauseating FOV, weird and annoying graphical bugs, at times frustrating controls and menu-systems and other lazily done porting-issues. I hope they take more time on the PC version this time. If it's the same mess as last time, I don't think I'll bother coming back to Dead Island for more.
