I’ve enjoyed the Dead Rising games in the past and had my fun piecing together wacky weaponry and busting zombie heads, but I would never count them among my favourites. They’re just, hehe, brainless zombie bashing, with no real intricate gameplay. If you had asked me a few days ago if I was excited to hear that Dead Rising 3 was being made, I would have shrugged, but now, after watching this trailer, I’m surprised to report that yes, I am excited for this game! If it’s anything like the preview above, then it would appear the creators of Dead Rising 3 have taken the wackier aspects of the first two games (especially combining things to make bigger, better things) and mixed in a healthy dose of the bleakness of a zombie apocalypse as well. The characters here look as though they are actually under threat – something I never felt in any of the previous Dead Rising games. And I like that the hero is a goofy stoner/surfer dude. This game could actually be pretty awesome, guys.
