Chaos is rising
Feb 25
// Brett Makedonski
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.
