Izmeth Siddeek of Blue Castle Games recently remarked that he and his team are aiming to pack Dead Rising 2 with up to 6,000 on-screen zombies at a time. Upon first hearing this news, I immediately thought, "YEAH! I can't wait for this game!"

Then I actually looked at my TV and tried to picture 6,000 zombies on-screen at once. I couldn't do it.

I have a 32-inch HD set, which I consider to be a pretty standard setup in our modern age. I just popped in my DVD of the Dawn of the Dead remake to check out the explosion scene, to see how many zombies I could count. I estimate there being somewhere between 800 to 1,200 zombies in that scene, but I could be wrong, because I quit after ten minutes of tallying. Counting zombies is a pretty lame thing to do with your Saturday.

Just like how a cheeseburger stacked three feet high might be the ultimate fast food experience, filling the screen with 6,000 zombies would be an amazing achievement ... in theory. In practice, I'm guessing it would be sort of a worthless gesture; just something for the game's developer to brag about while doing little to actually make the game more fun. Keep in mind, I'm the guy who openly admits to preferring Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop to the original Dead Rising, which I'm told will get you the stamp in some countries.

Rob Riggle plays a decent Frank West, but Dead Rising: Watchtower looks bad

We were promised a direct-to-internet Dead Rising movie, and that's exactly what we're getting. Even with my expectations set accordingly, I'm coming off this trailer for Dead Rising: Watchtower feeling disappointed. Rob Rig...more

Resident Evil HD did wonders for Jill's jiggle

These Jill-ggle physics are making the rounds what with Resident Evil HD Remaster coming out. Turns out this jell-o oscillation is not a new addition. It's a carryover from the GameCube REmake, but a combination of...more
