It’s great when controls translate perfectly how you picture them. According to MyWii, Capcom has detailed some of the more action-oriented controls in Dead Rising: Chop 'Til you Drop. The most shocking revelation is that when players aim at zombies, the on screen reticule will turn red. This innovation in reticule use indicates that you have indeed targeted a “weak spot” on the zombie. To reload your weapon after sending a horde of a hundred zombies back to their grave, simply shake the Wii remote.

If you were worried that Dead Rising: Chop ‘Til You Drop would not have a waggle mechanic, get ready to be pacified. Whenever a zombie attaches itself to your body, the only way to fight it off is via frantic waggling. The last bit of information is that the d-pad will allow hot-key weapon choices, while the Z and C buttons on the nunchuck will handle the sniper zoom.

I may give the Wii a hard time, but I’m excited to see how this Dead Rising incarnation will turn out. I may have already dug the Xbox 360 version, but I definitely wouldn’t mind actually having a game to scrub off the dust on the Wii. The controls look like they’ll be solid enough, as long as the waggling continues to stay at this minimal level.

This Dead Rising 3 DLC trailer is just too badass

If this trailer were to be believed, Dead Rising 3's new DLC Chaos Rising is pretty darn cool. I mean, look at all the leather, and motorcycles, and angry dudes in jail. That's practically the trifecta of cool stuff. However, Chris "Smash Mouth" Carter says it's not all that great. Maybe he just hates leather, and motorcycles, and dudes in jail.more

Review: Dead Rising 3: Chaos Rising

Capcom is churning out DLC for Dead Rising 3, and so far, it's struck out. The first DLC had a major problem offering up an uninteresting character and scenario, while the second gave us a better character, but an equally dis...more
