Dead Rising: Video of the demo

Dead Rising: Video of the demo

The demo of Dead Rising could very well be the best demo on the Marketplace for a long time. I think I've played it more than 10 times now, and I still find new things to do. Here is a rather long video montage showing a few interesting or stupid stuff you can do or find. I already love this game!

Its a great demo. The combat has a really good sense of impact and i am really impressed with the environment graphics. Definately one to buy.

the 4th screen on the 720p version shows the use of the katana. but anyway, the demo is great, its convinced me to get this game, it may have small technical flaws here and there but its so much fun to just pick up and mow people down - sometimes literally

Great Vid Blim!
You wield that frying pan like a true pro :)

The secrets in the full game will be, absolutely immense.

I read that there's even a recipe for making a smoothie that turns your spitting attack into one of the most effective attacks in the game!

Concidering that the full game has a great replay value, I'm definitely going to pick up this one.

As demonstrated in Blim's vid ;)

The Aussie market place still doesn't have it!!! I'm so jealous...i've been sitting around all weekend waiting for it, now its Sunday night and i've got school tomorrow! And all your comments about how good it is isn't helping haha.

I really like the look of this game and the tone of it, like shaun of the dead type of thing, and it sounds like it controls and plays really well, so it seems to be a definite winner...something to pick up and play when you have a free 10 minutes...and its good that it has good replay value because thats what this type of game needs. Definite buy for me, and if i pre-order it i get a free t-shirt yay! Shame i have to wait for September 9th for it down here haha.

Monkey, you can create a UK/US silver account and download it. Who knows when it will be released for us.

The Vsync problem seems to appear only if you have a vertical resolution superior to 720p. Is that the case for you?

i have vga cable to my computer LCD TFT
Commented on 2006-08-06 15:31:38
Interlacing will probably make V-sync tearing more obviously.

Because 720p is 60 frames per second (which is the 360's native output resoultion), if you select a 30 fps option (1080i/480i) the scaler will have to double up on frames probably causing more noticable tearing.

This is my theory anyways, i haven't expereinced much tearing at 480i however.
Commented on 2006-08-06 15:34:54
I have a 1080i TV, but I set my 360 to 720p and it seems to have taken care of the V-sync.
Commented on 2006-08-06 15:44:04
Its the first game in a long while ,a must have title for the 360

Didn't know about the UZI gun there, nice little thing :)
Commented on 2006-08-06 16:02:04
the only negative thing I have to say about the demo, is that the beginning-sequence (where he gets to the mall) is missing . .... I was really looking forward to see that in realtime, cuz it's the most amazing thing I've see so far on 360 (when they fly over the city, seen in a vid on xboxyde)

.. ... oh well, only one month until it's available :)
Commented on 2006-08-06 16:12:41
Nice video, can,t wait to play this game.
Commented on 2006-08-06 16:22:47
I was pleasantly surprised at how fun the game is. I was expecting it to be Dynasty Warriors with a different look to it, but it's definitely not.

A few flaws that I've seen so far:
*Not enough animations for attacks
*No ragdolls :(
*Precision aiming is dictated by the left analog stick, not the right stick like most games use.
Commented on 2006-08-06 16:33:28
It's good they have no ragdolls.. i think Saints Row shows the ragdoll effect is not always the best.

Great demo, one of the only demos on XBL that actually enourages me to buy the game
Commented on 2006-08-06 16:38:09
Very fun game. I'm always finding new things to do in the demo. Today I noticed that Frank can get blood all over his face. Really cool. Also, 1up.com reviewed the game. And it was a pretty crappy review as usual from the site

*No ragdolls :(
Thank god...

Ragdolls is very last gen and is one of saints rows many flaws. The next gen indiana jones is the way forward.

Because 720p is 60 frames per second
No it isn't. 720p doesn't dictate framerate at all, just dimension of image. If framerate is specified then it is after the p/i variable (eg. 720p24 for movies or 720p60 for a 60fps video).

  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (1 Hour ago)
