Debut trailer of Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop

I love zombies, as you may well be aware, and Dead Rising on 360 is one of the finest examples of zombies in videogames I have ever had the pleasure of playing. Now we have this trailer for the Wii version, Chop Till You Drop. The video is a little misleading, as it starts with footage of Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition to point out that they’ll have similar Wiimote controls.

I love my Wii and I love my Dead Rising. But you ever have that pair of friends who you have a ton of fun with on an individual basis but can’t stand when they’re together? That’s kinda the feeling I get watching this. I’m really interested in a Dead Rising game with improved control over firearms. You know what else I’m interested in? Zombies, and there’s only about twenty of them here.

I really hope this game is better than the trailer is making it look, because I’m not seeing anything threatening about groupings of a dozen or so zombies scattered throughout my field of vision. Maybe it’s early on and not all the zombies have shown up yet? Zombies can be fashionably late too, you know.

Oh, who am I kidding?
