Dead Rising CTYD: Video clip

Dead Rising CTYD: Video clip

Capcom just announced the release of Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop for February 24 in the US and February 27 in Europe, and did so in a rather original manner: A video clip of a song specially written by the Japanese punk band GaGaGa SP, with some rather surprising zombie dance moves.

that was one cool gametrailer =) although I think it'll always be best on the 360.

funny idea and a nice way to present DR2's graphics :D

I doubt this will sell well with the typical Wii-crowd.. The censorship in this trailer is also pretty sad (also done because of that same typical Wii-crowd?)..

1 positive thing is that it looks reasonably well for a Wii game.. (if this is how it really looks ingame aswell that is).. But offcourse it will look better on a Xbox 360 or PS3, those are much more powerfull machines (that's stating the obvious)..

A game not for the Wii Capcom try to force onto it. 360 all the way Frank my boy

Damn. Why is Capcom pulling this bullshit. Instead of giving fans a genuine Resident Evil title, they instead try to port a 360 game whose sole appeal was the fact that you can kill legions of Zombies at a time. The port removes the appeal. Hell, a RE5 port would have made more sense. You could downscale the graphics, but keep the same gameplay appeal.

The game won't look that good on Wii.

Pretty pointless, the Wii needs more original titles not a port of this mediocre effort.

It's only mediocre because Wii is a mediocre hardware compared to the rest.
You can't just copy paste a HD title to an low-spec system and hope it turns out for teh best.

Not what I meant at all, I think Dead Rising was a thoroughly mediocre game to begin with, nothing to do with hardware specs.

We all know it is a much less powerful system but we have also seen an (admittedly small) handful of titles that have used the limited hardware to great effect and the Wii needs more of those, not ports.

Yep, something as quirky and fun as No More Heroes.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @docLEXfisti: the megadrive shinobis are very different gameplay wise. I prefer the rolling thunder style instadeath coverbased design of arcade shinobi and shadow dancer. (3 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Loving the Friday the 13th game. So much fun :) (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker abilities, graphics and there's actually an "oomph" to these weapons, unlike Paladins. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I'm impressed by how many interesting characters there actually are here. If I compare this to Paladins I really only like two or three characters there. Not to mention the much better level design (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker But this for me seems to be the game that I want to get better at and hopefully get better too. It's going well against medium cpu (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Now since I'm a newbie to the game I've been playing against medium cpu with other players, so chances are when I go against actual people I will get my ass beaten (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Been playing Overwatch all morning and I'm quite enjoying it. Really digging a lot of the characters too. Awesome designs. (4 Hours ago)
