PlayStation Home: Dead Island And Gamescom 2011
In honour of forthcoming zombie survival game Dead Island, hop on a plane from PlayStation Home‘s Home Square to take a trip to the once beautiful resort of Banoi. Hack, slash, bludgeon, shoot, decapitate, and dismember swarms of zombies in a series of bloody, hyper-violent challenges in the Zombie Survivor Game. Complete all 10 challenges to unlock the “Exploding Zombie Bait”, a mega-powerful weapon for use in Dead Island that can only be acquired by surviving the undead onslaught in PlayStation Home.
It’s only a matter of time before the walking dead roam the land! How prepared are you? If a zombie showed up at your door, would you know what to do? Would you run or would you fight? Are you a Zombie Slayer, a Zombie Survivor, a Zombie’s best friend or just Zombie Fodder? Take the Zombie Survival Quiz NOW! Once you’ve shown that your king or queen of the zombies, snap some pictures of yourself posing with some flesh eating friends in the Dead Island PS Home Photo Shoot game.
This week the gamescom expo hits Cologne in Germany; don’t worry if you missed out on the SCEE press conference, we’ll be screening highlights in the gamescom space alongside a whole host of trailers from this year’s event. This space also features global travel so this is the ideal opportunity to mingle with your Home cousins from around the world. Enjoy!
Have you heard the latest? The hottest place to party these days is Dolly’s Diner. Dolly’s throwing Lindyhops and Bopps every weekend now! What do you mean you don’t have anything to wear? Lockwood’s just launched a whole range of rockabilly party wear so you can dance the night away 1950s style!
Guys can either adopt the classic greaser look with a cool leather jacket and a slick pompadour or opt for a preppier look in understated 50s inspired shirts and trousers. The girls have the choice of a sassy day look with tie-up blouses and cropped pants, or a breezy evening dress and sweeping over the shoulder hairstyle. Although of course, no-one at the store’s going to stop you buying both! There’s also a stylish selection of aviator jackets.
Get to the store, get your hair done and then call up all your diner-owning friends for an amazing retro party! You’ll be rocking and rolling in no time.
