I was originally sceptical of the need for a short "prequel" to the events of Dead Rising 2. This trailer, however, shows it might be worth a look.

Not for the cheap perks it promises at the end, but for the emotional punch it delivers in the beginning. For a game that's so far sold itself on moose heads and dirtbikes, it's a surprisingly soft direction for a Dead Rising game to take, and I like it.
