The first trailer with in-game footage shows how the new main character Chuck uses a roulette table to kill zombies.
OMG now this i must buy on first day.
chainsaws on a mx bike. IM SOLD. well i allready am i love deadrising 1. This looks damn awesome.
which platforms will DR2 be released on? i really loved the first game, the fact that events were constantly happening at certain times brought the mall to life and gave a real sense of urgency, especially if you tried for the saint achievement, that was hectic :)
I <3'd the first soooooo much I was definitely on the bandwagon to buy this sequel years ago... Dual-sided chainsaws on a Bo-staff... and chainsaws strappt to a motor-cycle... OMG... when's the release date now?
games have much of a story or are they like pain where you rack up points for causing damage?????????????
you can make your own weapons and that the bike/chainsaw's on a stick weren't pick uppable. Twould be orsome. Also, PLEASE MAKE FAST ZOMBIES. like in 28 days later or dawn of the dead type stuff.
There is a story to the game. It's been so long that I played the first one.. Hmm, I needa play that again. :O But, if you haven't played the first one, I suggest you pick it up and give it a try! :)
Awesome, this should be an interesting game.
yeah, LOL! My first question when I heard about DeadRising was will the gameplay keep fresh and fun all the way? or it will be repetitive after a while? Some days ago I got Burn Zombie Burn, extremely fun arcade game, it never gets old, DR has the same vibe in it. Why all the zombies are doing nothing, just waiting their turn to be slaughtered? maybe its just the preview version, and in the final product tehy will be more aggressive.
Vegas, chainsaw mx's, dual wielding chainsaws, and Greene should be spelled Norris imo. This looks good.
Dirt bike with two chainsaws ........ EPIC win right there.
..going to be awesome fun. I love the double ended chainsaw stick. Cant wait.
Capcom makes the best zombie games :)
Capcom has farmed this out so it's not technically a Capcom game. Not digging this new game at all.
Millions would disagree with you.
I loved the original but this one seems too americanized. Even the main devs are american this time and game looks a bit Unreal Engine 3 ish even though it's probably not using it. Still, lets hope for the best. This could still be a lot of fun.
im not concerned at all "The developers Blue Castle Games will be working with Keiji Inafune, the game's producer and Capcom's global head of research and development, along with other Dead Rising team members." same head producer, many of the base team from dr1. I say its at least as good as part 1.
I don't think the graphics look UE3ish at all. Capcoms MT Framework engine is a beast and usually trumps UE3 in most areas(depends on the devs though). "During a GDC presentation about the bolstered graphics engine powering Dead Rising 2, Izmeth Siddeek, the game's character art lead, made a fairly startling proclomation: "Dead Rising 2 deals with the rendering of the greatest number of characters ever seen in a video game," he said. In other words, the massive amounts of on-screen zombies featured in the original Dead Rising will apparently increase by a huge margin in the sequel. The enlarged zombie processing power can be attributed to developer Blue Castle's implementation of new visual technology called Mental Mill, which is capable of rendering large groups of characters without sacrificing graphical quality. Mental Mill product manager Laura Scholl claimed the new software will allow over 6,000 zombies to appear on-screen, providing undead multitudes that will be easy on the eyes, but rough on our formerly uneaten brains." http://www.joystiq.com/2009... Moose head ftw! Time limit ftl...
unreal3'ish would mean lowpoly models with highres normal maps. both are not visible in DR2. They have rather hoghpoly objects and character with decent normalmaps for details so nope sorry this has nothing unreal3'ish to it.
Thanks for the info. If Inafune is on board, I'm sold.
Bingo! You hit the nail on the head. They have shipped this game off to some 2 bit hack dev's and you can already see they are stripping out all the charm and replacing it with chainsaws and cheezy gimmicks. Hey look it's Chuck the "extreme" sports guy! PUKE! It's using Blue Castles cutting edge tech! You know the one they used in their baseball game that flopped so hard you probably never heard of it. Not to mention you can tell the game is going to suffer from the multiplatform meat grinder. Inafune is barely involved with this project.
crab why is it your constantly hating on something ? that hard to actually enjoy your hobby or do you find more satisfication bashing other peoples work?
72 hours time limit again!! no thank!!
i loved the first game, this looks even better. there is something about the graphics that looks a bit unreal-ish, but it still looks awesome. i have to say, i think capcom and done really well this gen. nearly all there games have consistently been of a very high quality. The new IP's especially have been good fun all round. I am looking forward to Bionic Commando and dark void. Dead Rising and lost Planet have been two of my favorite IP's this gen. the only games i have not liked so much are the rehash games from last gen. I didn't think much of DMC4, and i didn't think much of RES4 either. bring on Dead Rising 2 !
video not buffering at all can anyone give me another site?
Moose Head FTW, haha.
Eww low quality. HD right here > http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Is it me, or does it look just ok? I LOVED the first game (save system and all), but this just seems like an 'amercanized' version. No camera this time around?? That was one of the staples of the game. They should have stuck with Frank as the lead. I will reserve judgement, but the excitement meter went down a few notches after viewing that vid.
Yeah that trailer was very lame. Subpar graphics and mindless zombie killing. Is there a storyline at all or is it just like L4Dead?
Visuals are in the poor side, I suppose it has something to do with the amount of zombies they want to show at the same time. I guess the fun factor will make for that.
nyc play the original.. It is a classic!! Don't judge the IP on this horrible looking PS3/360/PC multiplaform sh*t job that these unknown dev's are throwing out.
chainsaw bikes FTW!!!!
i agree...but i cant quite put my finger on why...it just didnt excite me (apart from the darth maul double ended chainsaw awesomeness) i think its just...i've seen it all before. the shopping mall was a perfect setting for the first, i dont think im keen on the vegas part of it (totally random, but how cool would a cruise ship be as a setting! malls, restuarants, water parks, cheesy hawaian clubs...i digress) the graphics are ok, but arent a big deal for me (aslong as its better then the wii's...) the roulette wheel was boring, as was the guitar...i just didnt see much originality, and i ant help but feel like its a dea rising expansion pack (yeah, i know im basing that off only 1 trailer!!) AND CLOSE QUARTER FIST FIGHTING!!! against zombies!!! franks moves were massivley over the top, and it worked, but showing little fisty combos?!??! uncool.
Haha I was watching that and the weapons just kept getting better! I was like Ehhh Moose head!! Ehh chainsaw! Ehh double sided chainsaw! Ehhhhh double side chainsaw on a motorcycle!!! Hahah Capcom makes great trailers, lol. I'm sold. Tyvm can I have my copy now Capcom?
I just hope they made those chainsaws more durable and not break within 20 seconds of use...thats just no fun at all.
mm looks like fun but nothing special. Ill probably get it but not day one from this trailer.
I'm going to try and get my first platinum trophy with the second.
Geez. Loved the first game, so I'll be pickin this up as well. Some of the weapons looked nice, the Moose Head was cool! :D Hmm.. But, what ever happened to Frank? Is this co-op?? If not, it woulda been nice. Use Frank and Chuck as the characters..
Dual Chainsaws. I saw it and I was :o -> :D
im already sold. Capcom is having a solid 2009!!
whats the song in the back ground (when hes killing the zombies not when the checklist shows up :P)
http://www.gamezine.co.uk/n... 360 version is the one to get.
dead rising 2 on xbox 360 might be an exclusive experience. thank u capcom for giving 360 owners the superior version http://www.gamezine.co.uk/n...
It's cool. We get the ONLY versions of Uncharted 2 and God of War 3.
So i guess your playing with skorges staff
haha.. looks like a mindless hack n slash to me.. just like the first one
Who are you trying to convince moron, us or yourself.
at least i don't see him futzing with one... i loved the camera aspect in the first one. bonuses for upskirt shots, gruesome deaths, emotional scenes... it'll just be mindless without the camera. the whole basis of the first one was frank taking pictures and telling a story with them. the zombie killing came in second. that's what happens when you give a game to another studio. the fuuuck it up!
Not to be a dic, but I counted about 6 seconds of actual "in-game" play. The rest APPEARS to be quick cut scenes. I could be wrong. I will prob rent it....
