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. And now, Dead Rising 3 takes things even further by bringing back a long-neglected, but still loved character.

Just like the previous Dead Rising titles, players can collect pieces of Mega Man's suit to complete the set and, this time, acquire a working X-Buster, for whatever inexplicable reason. With it, you can mow down zombies with your rapid-fire cannon, or take out a whole group with the charged blast. Why, you ask? The real question is why the hell not?

So what do you think, Mega Man fans? Is this a wonderful reference? Or maybe it's still a bit too soon. Regardless, good ol' Rick looks pretty sharp in X's suit.

Review: Dead Rising 3: The Last Agent

So far we've had three pieces of underwhelming Dead Rising 3 DLC, in the form of Operation Broken Eagle, Fallen Angel, and Chaos Rising. That's three parts of the four-part Season Pass, and now all that's left is The Last Agent. It's a shame Capcom decided to charge money for these.more
