Moose Attack: Dead Rising 2 Trailer

By John Walker on February 12th, 2010.

This would be useful in competitive kayaking too.

There are some games you play, there are some games you watch. For some reason I only ever watched Dead Rising, as my former housemate – Xbox supremo Jon Hicks – slaughtered thousands upon thousands of zombies for my viewing pleasure. The sequel, cleverly called Dead Rising 2, is coming to PC too, and so it is that we may delight in the process. The new trailer, below, is a strangely crappy job. It has official Capcom logos on the front, and then looks like it was cobbled together by a seven year old who didn’t remember the music. Anyway, it importantly demonstrates that the sequel won’t be deviating from its purpose: killing zombies in ludicrous ways. I think the highlight below is not the double-ended chainsaw pole, but the moose head.

Dead Rising 2: Incomparably Silly/Violent

By Alec Meer on September 25th, 2009.

What follows is a video that simultaneously makes me want to cartwheel down the steet shouting “videogames! videogames! videogames!” and also curl up into a confused, future-shocked ball and wait for the end of the world. It’s Dead Rising 2′s multiplayer mode. It’s the Running Man with zombies. It’s Smash TV starring guys with three-foot, razor-sharp antlers strapped to their heads. It’s TERROR IS REALITY XVII, and you’ve probably never seen a video quite like this…

Dead Rising 2: Moose Of The Dead

By Alec Meer on April 28th, 2009.

Given the entire internet is busy spaffing about this today, we might as well join the fray – if only cos it’s always funny when someone accuses us of trying to be like Kotaku because we’ve posted something pop.

While Capcom’s first tongue-in-cheek free-roaming zombie-smasher was strictly for the Xbox Three-Hundred-And-Sixty Machine, the 2010-due sequel will also arrive on our glorious personal computer boxes. Joy! Footage below, which despite being pretty crass includes at least two ultra-lol moments.

No Brainer: Dead Rising 2

By Jim Rossignol on February 10th, 2009.


Capcom have been busy promoting their games on PC, and that continues with the confirmation of the sequel to their ultra-popular comedy zombie-bashing game, Dead Rising. The new game, which does not have a release date, continues the general theme of defeating the shambling hordes. Capcom explain: “Dead Rising 2 is set several years after the infamous zombie invasion of Willamette. Unfortunately, the zombie virus was not contained at the conclusion of Dead Rising, spreading unchecked throughout the United States and Dead Rising 2 depicts a country where zombie outbreaks continue to strike.” And that inevitably means more running around with a frying pan, braining the undead. The first shots seem to show horror fun in Vegas, which seems appropriate. Trailer after the hop.
