HIGH Watching all the cut-scenes with my character in a snappy tuxedo.

LOW Trying to mix life-giving drinks at a bar while getting mobbed by zombies.

WTF The amount of stuff lifted straight out of the first Dead Rising.

As a little change of pace—and because Dead Rising 2 is the subject of a lot of conversations at the moment—I decided to try and track down someone who's actually earned the infamous "7 Day Survivor" Achievement in the original Dead Rising. I was successful.

The Horror Geek presents: Creativity kills in Dead Rising 2 launch trailer

We're less than a week away from the official debut of Capcom's Dead Rising 2 and earlier this afternoon the company released the official full-length launch trailer for the zombie-murder simulator (where is Jack Thompson to protest this? Won't someone think of the zombies!?!?).

I've been really excited about this follow-up to the popular first game, particularly since I played Dead Rising: Case Zero a few weeks back. I can safely say, based on that experience, that Capcom has corrected many of the issues that frustrated gamers like yours truly in the first title. You can catch the new clip after the jump—I won't spoil any of its best parts here, aside from mentioning that new protagonist Chuck Greene needs an official duck tape sponsorship after his work in this game.

Dead Rising 2 lands on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 28th.

HIGH Killing zombies with the broadsword is a gory good time.

LOW Trying to guide an injured survivor back to the bowling alley only to have her defect at the alley's entrance.

WTF Watching a female zombie take a giant chomp out of Chuck's crotch.

HIGH Jumping into a transforming Vital Suit and unleashing hell on enemy troops.

LOW The poor setup for mission 3-3 turns a great battle into a frustrating slog.

WTF Earning customization items is soul-crushingly slow and hatefully random.

Trent Needs Help and Lost Planet 2

Earlier I finished Lost Planet 2 on PlayStation 3. It was a really bizarre experience for a few reasons, but primarily because it started off lukewarm and sort of middling, but then actually managed to get better and more exciting with each successive level. I wasn't feeling too hot on it at first, but the game had completely won me over by the time credits rolled.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Second Opinion

To every person who went out of their way to say that I must be blind, dumb, or mentally disabled; for every person who decided that I did not know the meaning of the word fun; for every person who tried to convince me that I hate games and was absolutely missing the point of Earth Defense Force 2017… I give you Lost Planet: Extreme Condition.
