Capcom has laid off a significant number of staff in its Vancouver office as part of a shift that saw the company cancel an unannounced project and cut scope on the next Dead Rising, according to a person familiar with the company as well as various posts on social media.
Games have a zombie problem. They can be your basic slow shamblers or your fast berserkers, but whatever variation appears in a game, zombies are little more than mindless pinatas meant to be killed in large numbers. Zombies are rarely a challenge to fight on an intellectual level, and an enemy that doesn’t get…
Dead Rising 4 loses the “Xbox One console exclusive” label on December 5. The full game is coming to PlayStation 4 as Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package, including all downloadable content and a brand new “Capcom Heroes” game mode. It’s like a game of the year edition, only without being anyone’s game of the year.
Dead Rising 4 offers a fun zombie-bashing playground, but is not a good Dead Rising game.
Goichi Suda, known better as Suda 51, has made some bizarre games. From the political thriller Killer7 to the highly satirical No More Heroes. His games are vibrant and unabashedly tongue-in-cheek. What happens when he makes a free to play dungeon crawler? Pure chaos.
DLC for December’s Xbox One and PC release Dead Rising 4 will include an 18-hole golf mode called Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf. There will also be an expansion subtitled “Frank Rising” about protagonist Frank West getting infected with a zombie virus. Plenty more details here.
UPDATE (6/13): Dead Rising 4 is official. Microsoft announced the game during their E3 press conference today, after a leak revealed it last week. It’ll be out for Xbox and Windows 10 this holiday.
The trailer for Dead Rising: Watchtower was better than I expected, so I'm hoping the movie follows suit! If you'd like to get a head start on me, the Dead Rising movie is now available for streaming over at Crackle.
Current standards for zombie movies based on zombie games are pretty low, but at least Dead Rising isn't taking itself seriously. The first trailer for Dead Rising: Watchtower is out, and we're in for 90 minutes of slightly-above-low-budget zombie action. That's just the way I like it.
Naru Omori is a veteran video game artist who has spent pretty much his entire career at Capcom, both in the company's Japanese and North American studios. In that time, he's contributed to series like Resident Evil, Dead Rising and Devil May Cry.
Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha, the DLC for Dead Rising 3. Boy, that's a mouthful.
A new arcade-style DLC pack for Dead Rising 3 is available today. Available on Xbox Live, Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha features online 4-player co-op with powerups, bonus stages, and... cosplay.

There's a Facebok group called Dead Mall Enthusiasts. It's a fascinating collection of photos people have taken of abandoned malls across America. There are all kinds of socioloical reasons why that's interesting, but what's really got me is how they look like a video game artist's portfolio come to life.
In what has to be one of their more...creative jokes, Mega64 takes on the controversial and whopping 13GB Dead Rising 3 patch.
There's a 13-gigabyte update live for Dead Rising 3 today, and if you think that seems kind of big, well, that's because it's kind of big.
Operation Broken Eagle, the first downloadable episode for Dead Rising 3, has been delayed to January 21. The DLC was originally expected on December 24, but Microsoft says they're pushing back the date in order to spend a few more weeks polishing and playtesting.
The real world can be a frustrating place. Stuck in traffic, trapped in line at the supermarket… it always feels like there's someone in the way. Certain games—the Grand Theft Autos, the Dead Risings—show us a world where it's okay to act on our worst, most violent impulses. Our forest of problems becomes a lawn we…
Come for the zombies, stay for the robot boy dress-up party. Capcom's Dead Rising 3 once again lets its protagonist don fabled armor from the fan-favorite franchise, gifting a Mega Man X costume to any brave soul who completes the game. The Mega Buster, on the other hand, (ha!) takes some work.
