Dead Rising 2: Off The Record Announced

That reminds me. I must see about the new RPS staff uniforms.

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 motocross star Chuck Greene. Sound like a cheap cash-in? You’d be wrong, sir. DEAD wrong. Full features list and debut trailer after the jump.

Wot I Think: Dead Rising 2

Capcom’s zombie-bothering sequel Dead Rising 2 arrived on plastic discs earlier this week, and on Steam today. I’ve been making a right old mess of its enormous, infested mall for the last week or so, which leaves me in a position to bother you with a whole bunch of thoughts about it.

I never expected a game about firing water-pistols at zombies whilst wearing a child’s t-shirt and a Blanka hat to be so serious.

Death, Spanked: New Dead Rising 2 Trailer

Be a sport.

I spent this weekend playing mentalcakes zombie apocalypse simulator Dead Rising 2 on my console-toy, since it’s not out on PC until Friday. Guess what? It’s great! I have yet to stop laughing at the use of highly ineffectual weapons (rolled-up newspapers, bottles of orange juice) against zombies to no effect. It’s better than the first game, too.

Are you excited? If not, there’s a new developer walkthrough trailer you can see right after the jump. It’s a kind of whistle-stop 4 minute tour of some of the game’s features, climaxing with a neat trick involving a propane tank, some fireworks, a box of nails and a lizard mask.

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.
