Impressions: Dead Rising 3's SmartGlass App

Microsoft's SmartGlass functionality kind of came and went on the Xbox 360. Very few games supported the "second screen experience" concept and if they did, it was usually something underwhelming like an interactive website. ...

Dead Rising 3 zombies are like snowflakes

Microsoft has released the launch trailer for Dead Rising 3, launching with the Xbox One console this week. Are there zombies? You bet there are. This is, right now, the only title the Xbox One has on offer that I feel a bur...

Review: Dead Rising 3
by Chris Carter

A lot of doubts filled the air when Dead Rising 3 was announced. As both an Xbox One exclusive and a Capcom-produced title, not a whole lot of excitement was abound when the game was first announced. Then you add in the "We're going for a Call of Duty audience" developer comments, and you have one certified shit-storm of a release.

But nothing compares to actually playing it for yourself, and I'm pleased to say that the third iteration of this now famous franchise has risen (ha!) to the occasion. In fact, Dead Rising 3 is the first game I've seen that really harnesses the power of next-gen consoles.

Oh, and it's also a phenomenal game as well.

Mega Man X returns in Dead Rising 3

Capcom is keeping the tradition of goofy and referential costumes going strong in Dead Rising. With homages to many different movies and Capcom games in the past, this series knows how to hit all the right notes with fans. A...

Capcom dishes out delicious Dead Rising 3 story trailer

Dead Rising 3 is certainly looking quite promising, having all but escaped the crucible of Capcom Vancouver's apparent desire to chase the Call of Duty audience. Following a shaky showing at E3 earlier this year where the ti...

Dead Rising 3: One hell of a comeback photo
Dead Rising 3: One hell of a comeback
by Dale North

I won't spend as much time on Dead Rising 3 as I did with some of the other Xbox One pre-launch previews as we've covered it a fair bit in the past. We first saw it at E3 and thought that it looked and sounded rough. But our Tokyo Game Show preview from a few months later had us feeling better about it. I was most relieved to see that Dead Rising 3 embraced the spirit of the first game at gamescom. It's absolutely bonkers and makes no apologies for that. 

I feel even better about it now that I've spent a fair bit of time playing it last week.

This Dead Rising 3 commercial sure feels familiar

I love The Turtles' "Happy Together" as much as the next person, but featuring it in a commercial for a videogame when that's been done to the point of near perfection already? You're walking on thin ice here, Dead Rising 3....

Capcom: Dead Rising 3 looks like an open-world Uncharted

Generally speaking, open-world games tend to suffer a bit in the visual department for the sake of granting freedom to the player. Likewise, some of the most visually astounding titles are typically linear experiences where t...

'You'll never see the same zombie twice' in Dead Rising 3

Dead Rising 3 makes me happy with how crazy it is photo
Dead Rising 3 makes me happy with how crazy it is
by Dale North

The first showing of Dead Rising 3 looked good, but it also looked pretty serious. I feel in love with the franchise for its weirdness, so that first showing at E3 had me concerned. But from what I've seen at Tokyo Game Show this week, I'm no longer worried. Now I know that Dead Rising 3 is about as crazy as it gets.
