The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

What is it boy? The security room's way across the mall?

Capcom  made a great entrance into the next-gen world with it's first game for the Xbox 360, Dead Rising. Though the game may not be any Resident Evil, Dead Rising it's own against it's formaly and most popularly known big brother. When you first start off you'll first notice that the controls aren't what they should be. While you do get used to this the saves, will not be so enjoyable. For example, your running through the mall trying to get some japaniese tourists to safety with little time and low health, so you decide to cut through the park for a quicker route to the security room, unexpectedly three convicts in a heavily armed jeep(how it was taken and got into the park is still a mystery.)decide to be "Phycopaths" (which for some odd reason many of them some how wind up in the mall)and try to kill you and anyone with you, and gets even more difficult when it's night which is nearly imposible to enjoy the very time consuming clips the producers put in for us. Anyway so you die no big deal right? Wrong, you go all the way back to where you saved, which in most cases aren't used as much as you like since you have to go to them through loads and loads of zombies which are fun but after a while can be rather annoying, not literaly everything can be used but many things can. The A.I. is gruesome. Everyone in a way are zombies, but still is not enough to kepp you from playing. You may get mad with repeating parts over and over and escorting survivors, but later, you'll find yourself still popping this one in. It's a Great Game thats worth the money spent.
