The Daily Hotness: Moose attack

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero has a lot of fun (and funny) weapons, but there’s no topping the moose head, in my mind. The electric rake and dual-chainsaw paddle thing tie for second place.

We learned about the supposedly magical new Xbox 360 controller, heard the release dates for a lot of great Xbox LIVE Arcade titles, talked about a certain puffball who is made of string, had a triple-attack of reviews, and some other stuff happened on 8/31/10.
