Dead Rising 2 High Stakes Edition gets unboxed

9:00 AM on 09.26.2010 // Matthew Razak

(In honor of the upcoming Rally to Restore Sanity/March to Keep Fear Alive I shall deliver all the news this weekend twice: First the sane way, and then the fear way. It's the weekend, I get to do stuff like this (I hope... please don't fire me).

Sane: I hate unboxing videos, but damn if it isn't a slow weekend and damn if Dead Rising 2's High Stakes Editions doesn't come with a really nice poker set. Half the time you open one of these things I expect some half-assed trinket, but other than the blood splattered all over everything this looks like a totally usable poker set

Worth $89.99? That's your call, but it sounds like a good deal to me. The real question is where you'll keep your life-size zombie statue if you win one.

Fear: And now we see what the gaming industry has really been up to all these years. It's not enough to get our children hooked on violence and drugs and sex, but their real nefarious goal is to promote gambling to minors by selling a poker set with a videogame as this video shows.

I have no proof, but I'm 100 percent certain that videogame companies own ever casino in the world, and now they want our children to start gambling in them. Don't be surprised if next time you're driving by one you see little cousin Billy walking out the door broke and having just pawned his teddy bear so he could stay and play just one more hand.
