So I fired up Dead Island last night.....was having a blast with it. Little did I know that when you choose a character at the beginning of the game you were choosing a position in the game. I liked Ryder..he seemed badass....come to find out later he is the last act of the game so I basically played the last 3/4ths of the game to the end. What a bitch that is! Can't even get motivated to try to play from the beginning. Hope this helps someone.....great game though!
