Dead Rising review

I've always had a soft spot for the first two Dead Rising [official site] games. Soft spots are the second cousins of nostalgia, and similarly mean that I'll happily make concessions for a series' flaws. The Dead Rising games have rudimentary combat, horrible time limits, and dodgy AI, but I forgive them because the brutal absurdism of the series has always tickled me (except for…

GFWL-B-Gone: Dead Rising 2 Switched To Steamworks

You may survive a zombie bite, sometimes, if you hack off the bodypart they nibbled - you've got to beat the infection to your heart. Games have a little more time. Dead Rising 2 and its reimagine-o-follow-up Off the Record were born riddled with Games for Windows - Live, Microsoft's nasty abandoned attempt to make PC games Xbox Live-y, but now they're free. As promised,…

Steamy: Dead Rising 2 And Resident Evil 5 Ditching GFWL

Splintered bones pierce greyed rotting skin. It shambles on, oblivious. It doesn't notice organs falling out, skin sloughing. We may never fully understand what keeps it alive, if you can call that living. Poor old Games for Windows - Live. [The old switcheroo, we call that one -ed.] Capcom are planning to scrape the withered glands of GFWL out another three of their games, they…

There would have been a bit with me riding a tricycle and shooting a water pistol at a horde of reanimated corpses and another bit…

Go West: Dead Rising 2 Off The Record

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record is out October 11th, revisiting the sequel's crazed casino-mall through the eyes and lens of the original game's swaggering photojournalist Frank West. Both the protagonist and the trailer are delightful because they appear to take themselves far too seriously but swiftly degenerate into surreal, nonsensical madcappery. It all looks rather bleak and ill-judged, with the tale of a once…

Gamescom: Dead Rising 2’s Off The Record

The return of Frank West in Dead Rising 2 standalone spin-off Off The Record offers a reinvention of the splendid Dead Rising 2, but from another perspective. And also offers Capcom a chance to put out more of their extremely weird, and rather brilliant, trailers for the game. This one's a guide to photography! Of sorts. You can see it below.

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record Announced

Still furious at Dead Rising 2 standalone episodes Case Zero and Case West not seeing a PC release? Nevermind. Not sure what they are? OK. Forget all that, because Capcom's announced something much more significant that will be seeing a PC release. Dead Rising 2: Off The Record is Dead Rising 2 re-imagined with photojournalist Frank West, the protagonist from the first Dead Rising, replacing…
