Yeah the military is never ever successful in containing the infection in a zombie apocalypse.

That would actually make a great management game. You have to keep the boat fueled, supplied, and in good repair (and supply the passengers with distractions like books and movies to keep them mentally healthy) as you make your way towards a safe haven. However, the military guys keep getting orders that mean you have to take detours to acquire samples from population Y or rescue person X. In the regular missions (which plays like regular Dead Island) you can rescue other people, but be careful; they might be mentally unstable, or decide they want to take over the boat for themselves.

If you'll excuse me, I need to go win the lottery and have a word with Techland. Graham and Paul can have producer credits.

Also, can zombies have a NATURAL enemy?
Given that they're made of dead, rotting flesh, I'd say that flies are their natural enemy. Possibly fish when in the water.

I think your bodyguard will resent you no matter what you do, it's just part of life.

Zombie apocalypse survivor Operation?...
Someone make an indie game of that right NOW for PSN/XBLA! Or at least make a flash game of it...

The military is successful in Shaun of the Dead. But I believe that was meant as a subversion of the fact that they never are.

Is anyone else having problems with the video cutting out? It's happened on a few other videos on this site before.

Wow, even the pre-rendered cutscene had tons of screen-tearing.

Also, in Shaun of The Dead, the military actually contained the infection successfully and within the first few days.

Seriously, that was the plot of the original Dead Island? Good thing I skipped that one.

The military actually did a surprisingly good job at containing the zombies in Dead Rising 1 and 2. They successfully locked down Willamette, razed Las Vegas to the ground and managed to keep the zombies from ever spreading. Heck, the only reason there was even an outbreak in the second game was because some idiots kept the zombies around for sport!

Still the number of times the military has successfully contained a zombie outbreak can be counted on one hand with a few fingers missing.

BTW, I like your avatar.

So if I protect LRR I will hate them? Damn it!

The protagonist is called Purna? Was she ever married to a burger server named Werner, who spurned her for a curly-haired surfer named Roberta?

I don't get why you'd expect anything less then handcuffing then 'straight to the lab' after you JUST got out of a zombie invasion. It'd be a pretty shitty military operation if they didn't handcuff survivors in case they weren't immune and are actually infected, and straight to the lab to make sure their not infected or carriers.
