Oh, The Many Ways You'll Kill Zombies On Xbox One

Dead Rising 3 is one of the Xbox One's best-looking launch games, but most of what I'd seen of it so far looked far too drab and "serious" for a series as delightfully weird as Dead Rising. That said, this new gameplay trailer has me much more interested.

In two minutes, we get to watch scads of different ways to kill the game's trademark hordes, from the simple to the absurd. Breathing fire! Donning a shark mask and ramping a motorcycle into a mob of the undead! That's what I'm talking about!

It's still a little bit too dark for me—it doesn't help that this is all taking place at night—but this is certainly a step in the right direction.

Well that settles it. For simple lack of anything at all that interests me on PS4 until next year (when the avalanche begins), my first next-gen console will in fact be XB1. I don't even care that the game is still drab, that it has framerate issues, or that it only occasionally even manages to look like something a 360/PS3 couldn't accomplish. I want a fun game, and this looks fun. I want a reason to buy a next-gen system this year, and now that I am reasonably satisfied that DR3 will at least be fun, I have that reason.

With that having been said... My plan is to put Kinect2 on a closet shelf and keep it there. DR3 had better.. better not require me to use it in any capacity!
