That's right. Dead Rising 2.

So, a slew of details and a trailer for dead rising 2 came out, and if you enjoy killing zombies as much as I do, then this is great news.

First up, the trailer:

What do we have here? dual chainsaw dirtbikes? Hell yes.

Here are all the details on this game I have managed to find:

tl;dr - Dead Rising is awesome and if you disagree you are a pussy. Also, 7000 zombies on screen at once, weapon combinations, and multiplayer.

    THE MOOSE IS LOOSE

    I tried to write "but that" and my hands naturally wrote "butt hat", which is vastly superior in every way.

    Aww, man, I wish I hadn't sold my 360.

    On that note, I hope this is better then the first one. I loved the core gameplay and the zombie-killing, but the boss fights were dumb and didn't fit in with what I wanted at all.

    I never actually played the original Dead Rising

    shame on me

    I enjoyed the bosses. For instance, the chain saw juggling clown was pretty amazing. The one thing I HATED about the first game was that Otis felt the need to call you every 5 seconds.

    I'm pretty sure it is a greatest hits now, and it's an older title, so it can be bought on the cheap.

    Infinity (?) mode fixed all of that. You have unlimited time, no story, the whole mall, and have to live off of food and survive in the mall as long as you possibly can.

    The original you could bypass the story and just spend three days killing zombies if you waited in the security room before heading down to the mall at the start of the game

    It would bypass the beginning and the first cinematic was the oen with the queen

    What the hell, roboth ero?

    If you are talking about the text display, voice acting, and ugly faces then yes, I agree.

    If you are talking about certain gameplay aspects like the timed missions and difficulty of save-points, I will make fun of you regarding survival-horror games.

    I had fun when I actually got to play the first one, but that was being constantly interrupted by phone calls, tiny tiny tiny text, and a story I didn't really care about

    The display, characters, plot, boss fights, camera angles, and time limits were all enormous drawbacks. The only thing that saved the game for me was the mangling of zombies.

    I mean, I probably put ~30 hours into it, but I never got past that puerto rican guy with a big rifle.

    Yeah, they were irritating as shit the first time I booted it up. Eventually I figured out a good method for taking them down easily, though I don't remember what it was.

    Also, the month after this game was released, I snorted a dose of 2c-e and drove around in the convict area fucking up zombies for two hours. I have never enjoyed anything videogame related that much.

    By my recollection, they were terrible at noticing you so it was pretty easy to hang out where they couldn't rape you with the machine gun and pick them off.

    My only complaint with DR1 is the saving system. I mean what the fuck. Games have evolved past this point, and I'm a firm believer in Save Anywhere. Seriously, having to traverse everything to run back to the security office and save? Fuck that.

    also didn't they show up there again even if you killed them?

    It was a bug. They weren't supposed to be able to respawn.

    Word.

    In fact, the more I think back on my initial purchase of Dead Rising, the more I realize it was a truly terrible game that redeemed itself with one awesome thing: hitting zombies with stuff.

    There were other places to save.

    Also, this is a survival-horror game, not for babies like you.

    Man the only reason you would have no gun at that point is if you were dumb

    The problem is that it's my first run-through, so I'm stuck with the security room. So many absolutely frustrating moments with running through the courtyard and getting sniped to death by the fuckers in the gun-mounted jeep from across the lawns and through gaggles of zombies and losing everything I'd just worked for. Kind of a game breaker, so I'm looking forward to alternatives.

    Are there any other places I can save on the go? Because seriously, that would help me actually get through this game without having to start over so often.

    There was a respawning uzi and katana near the mall entrance from the security room that you could get every time you were in the area.

    Yep. That Uzi was the best weapon, though my favorite was probably the giant gardening shears.
