There are some new "choose your own adventure" style flash videos on the official Japanese Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop webisite that reveal more about the game's combat system and enemies. Highlights include Frank getting shot at by a fat zombie, Frank pwning a poodle down with a chainsaw, and Frank driving through hundreds zombies in the Willamette Shopping Mall's garage.
Even with House of the Dead: Overkill and Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers also coming out this month, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop is still at the top of my "Most Wanted Wii zombie games" list. It also doesn't hurt that House of the Dead: Overkill got a 3/10 from that Swedish game magazine, while Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop got a 7/10 (assuming that these scores are smudge-free.)
A 7/10 may not sound too great, but ever since Game Informer gave No More Heroes, one of my favorite games ever, a 6.5/10, I've learned that any Wii game that gets over a 6/10 in the eyes of the mainstream gaming press may end up being a classic in mine.
In other words, "I GOTTA BELIEVE!"
