Executive producer Josh Bridge talks about the darker tone Dead Rising 3 and says the move to horror over comedy is 'intentional'.
The comedy made it unique... Now it's going to be a copy of other games and a air strike. I want to be able to dress as megaman and run over zombies with a tricycle D:<
If you see the extended footage, it still funny, you can wear a shark suit in the middle of apocalypse :)
What was scary about it to begin with??
Yeah the comedy was the main redeeming factor for a lot of people who liked Dead Rising. Sad too see that change but maybe it will be for the best.
Comedy kinda Killed the Suspense for me. I couldn't take the game serious that way.
Thats what made "Dead Rising" Dead Rising
true for sure, still a turn off to some because the zombies were just there and not much of a real threat or scary. just something to easily crush and move on.
I have a feeling that if this was a ps4 exclusive you would welcome the horror elements easier ps fanboys.
There's a horror element in this game? I thought it was going after the CoD crowd?
I welcome the horror elements. It's the comedy that ruins DR for me.
Oh for the love of god stop making it about fanboys, the game is going away with what made it unique and fun I mean it's supposed to be a horror game, where your alone in the Zombie apocalypse but he calls in an air strike....REALLY. Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, Dead Space, dmc etc...all games that we complained about because they moved away from what made them so special. What platform it's on has nothing to do with it. When a game moves away from what it was once like it usualy sucks...history has taught us that.
@Mr Nuts I am personally glad to hear this news....at least now there is an option to play this game seriously or just bullshit around. The old way is what turned me off from the game, it was fun for a little while but just became to silly, and I began to wonder why I was playing it. At least with this new way, I could beat the game (seriously), then come back on my second go around and have fun with it. How could anyone be opposed to that?
I personally really liked the gameplay.
Me. Nuts your a fanboy to the fullest. So atop
@warewolfSS How...please explain to me how OR Are you just saying that because thats what most trolls do on here when they are p***** over someones comment, can't think of anything witty to say so go straight to the "Your a fanboy" phrase even though it's not true. Find it hilarious though that you say that when most of your comments are always towards anything Sony related. Why is it the only thing Xbox fanboys can say is that "Your a fanboy" saying when they are themselfs are you projecting your own flaws onto other people so you look like you have a counter argument or something. Lets not forget most of you have only joined not too long ago, roughly when E3 was or the Xbox reveal.
Stop it.Just go to youtube and look at the dislikes.Every one of the Xbox One games has been disliked to death because of stupid fanboys.
Actualy one of the devs Already explained that In an interview. He said that the main character has a buddy over at a military command center, and its interesting because the way you would contact him would be Through real life in your phone and ask him for some assist. Of course this is an ai not a real person.
i like the horror aspect, i didnt play dead rising because of that, the zombies were more so a interactive nuisance than an enemy in the game. hopefully that changes this go round. i understand why fans of the series are mad though, dead space changes its theme on the 3rd game and it sucked, gears of war judgement changed its style and it was one of the worst of the series etc...
Timed Exclusive. <-- Fanboyism or Truth
I am kinda worried, because the quirks were what made Dead Rising so enjoyable. The moose head battering ram in two was a favorite. I haven't lost faith though - there was a shark costume in a video, so I think that it hasn't gone completely straight yet!
the original may not have been scary but in the off the record addon i shit myself when you go to the bathroom to save and one jumps out on you didnt expect it! but im looking forward to this new take on the game it's early yet we've seen 1% of gameplay
YAY! Another generic zombie game for next gen... I'm good I'll pass. I never looked at Dead Rising as HORROR lol.
It amazes when people moan about zombie games, there isn't that many on consoles ffs! Waits for someone to post a full list to prove me wrong
But a good combination of horror and comedy makes this series great! Too much sway one way or the other loses a big chunk of your audience. Then again, making it exclusive to one console loses an even bigger chunk of your audience. Lol.
Awww, so no more ridiculous bosses??
I've always liked Dead Rising. If I had to pick Horror first, Comedy second or Comedy first, Horror second... It would be Horror first. So far what I have see excites me.
Except from footage shown it doesn't look like a horror game in the slightest. The mere fact airstrikes exist as a gameplay element implies you've got long-range support and when you can call down what is essentially the fist of God to get you out of a tight spot you lose whatever tension there was. As a zombie-slaughtering sandbox game DR3 might be a decent title but don't you give me any bullshit about 'Horror' Capcom because in the time since Code Veronica's release you've clearly forgotten what that words means and I'd stake that this won't change any time soon.
They want COD sales so it wont be much of a horror game.
Why the disagrees? you people are clowns they even said it them selfs they want COD sales humanity just die off already please. -_-
I think that, deep down (and really, on the surface) every game maker wants call of duty sales no matter how realistic/not realistic that may be.
The reason I loved Dead Rising 1 was because it was really funny and the gameplay was colorful and REALLY fun. Dead rising 3 looks gray and brown and boring as hell.
this is gonna flop, it feels its gonna be rushed just to make Xbone launch. Shame
I agree people seriously believe this game is gonna be amazing and sell well on one platform when this should of been a multiplat...
Soooooo if DEAD RISING is officially a horror game...what makes Resident Evil? >___>
In a world where the Zombie Apocalypse is taken serious, I would love to see a ninja slash a zombie wearing a yeti mask with a paddle duct tapped with a chainsaw. Playing a game should sound just as fun playing it when you hear Dead Rising because its known as a comedic take on a serious situation. I would have never played Dead Rising on an 360 if it was the same as Resident Evil, because shooting zombies with a shogun isn't as fun as killing it with a frying pan. Idk why but it is.
