Dead Rising 2 is getting its first traditional add-on content: stat-boosting outfits. Capcom didn't mention specific prices yet, but this seems like the type of content you'd be asked to pay a few dollars for. Note: the first date is for Xbox 360, and the second is for PlayStation 3.

  • Psychopath Theme Pack (Oct. 12 and 13): You are more difficult to kill; "gruesome" weapons like chainsaws and axes do more damage
  • Soldier of Fortune Theme Pack (Oct. 19 and 20): Double ammo, increased shooting accuracy, more firepower, and improved headshot accuracy; special spray attack with automatic weapons
  • Sports Theme Pack (Oct. 26 and 27): Sports-themed weapons are more effective; new tackle attack; you earn more from gambling and gain more health while eating and drinking
  • Ninja Theme Pack (Nov. 2 and 3): Zombies won't grab you as easily; damage is increased with sword-type weapons which also have new special attacks; stackable items and throwing items like nails and gems do more damage; faster throwing speed

I'm a little torn. These were previously pre-order bonuses, so that's kind of annoying, but wouldn't it be even worse if you never had the opportunity to get this stuff without reserving multiple copies of Dead Rising 2? There's something to think about while you wait for your next case to pop up.

Monster Hunter 4 NA weapon contest winner is an insect glaive

I don't think anyone expected the North American weapon contest winner to top the UK's Monster Hunter 4 design (a freaking pig on a club, c'mon!), but it's a pretty cool looking item nonetheless. Yep, the North American...more
