Dead Rising 4 may not be a surprise for folks who keep their ears pressed to the rumour mill (watch yourself: the millstone will tear that right off), but now it's official. Capcom's silly open-world zombie monstermash is coming this holiday season, bringing back original protagonist Frank West and even the original setting of a mall in Willamette. Along with silly hats and weapons, it…
