Dead Rising 2’s Weirdo Japanese Ad

Minister Drillcock's cousin.

Dead Rising 2 is out in but six days (on PC – the consoles get it in two), and in the run up appears a deeply peculiar Japanese trailer for the game. It seems to be a sort of American daytime magazine show, dubbed in mad-shouted Japanese, with on-screen nonsense and the occasional clips of the game. And most importantly, two people (well, one person and one zombie) taping a chainsaw to a paddle. There’s also a couple of “outtake” videos, which appear to show only how little fun was had while recording.

Zombies Exposed: Dead Rising 2 Trailer

Now THAT'S gaming.

“What makes it fun is playing it.” This is the rather excellent reply from a Blue Castle developer talking about Dead Rising 2. In the trailer below you can see an awful lot of footage of the game, but also find out the story behind it all. The story of ex-motocross champion Chuck Greene, and his desperate fight against a zombie outbreak in Fortune City, motivated by attempting to find the drug Zombrex to keep his young daughter alive.

Dead Rising 2: Welcome To Fortune City

Mmmm, toasty.

It’s always good to see some more Dead Rising 2 trailers appear, since each appears to be more peculiar than the last. Two more have appeared for Comic Con, advertising the rather lovely looking resort of Fortune City, Nevada. The first is, well, literally an advert for the city. The second – it goes into more specific details about what more lively events could take place there.

Dead Rising 2 Gets All Serious About Stuff

Boxing gloves! Hooray!

Captivate (Capcom’s festival of gaming gubbins, which I stake the claim for having named – I can prove it with IM records) has revealed a new trailer for Dead Rising 2, which lest you need reminding is confirmed for PC. Unlike the first one. Capcom, we love you best when you release games on PC too. You can watch it with any of your remaining eyes below.

Moose Attack: Dead Rising 2 Trailer

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.

The Year Ahead, Part Two

We’re peering through the futurescope at the games we can expect to see in the coming year. There’s plenty to work through, so let’s get on with a look at some of the notable games of Spring and Summer 2010. (You can read part one here.)

Dead Rising 2: Incomparably Silly/Violent

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

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

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.
