Dead Rising 2 Gameplay Trailer - Chainsaws!

Even though zombie games are a dime a dozen these days, I'm a bit more excited about "Dead Rising 2" than the rest. The original was an innovator in the genre when it came out for the 360 years ago, and was a hit despite it's tremendous difficulty. Late this morning, the first gameplay trailer was thrown on the hungry masses, and I like what I see, especially in the last 10 seconds or so:

French Trailer for "Mutants"

I don't usually post foreign language trailers on the site until they have subtitles, but this one caught my eye today so I wanted to bring it your way. It's for a French film titled "Mutants", by a young director named David Morlet. From what I'm seeing here and the synopsis, it appears to be an artsy zombie film. The trailer looks great, but word is it has gotten some bad buzz from a recent film festival in Germany. It still doesn't have a rating on IMDB, which means that not a lot of people have had the chance to see it yet. So, check the synopsis and trailer below.

"Zombies of Mass Destruction"

"Zombies of Mass Destruction", the indie film with the kick-ass name is now the indie film with the questionable trailer, and a poster that looks like it has Matthew Perry in the background. I can't decide if there are more cringeworthy moments than celebratory ones in this 1:42 piece, but I'll let you make the final call. I do know that I'm enjoying the political themes, but I'm just not sure this movie can pull them off. The synopsis:

Best Buy Applauds Zombified RE5 Launch

If you're a follower of the hype surrounding the recent release of "Resident Evil 5," you may have heard about the zombie-infested midnight release held at the Stroudsburg, PA location. Basically, instead of waiting in line in a well lit room (BORING!) to purchase the game, fans from all over Stroudsburg and the surrounding areas waited in line while high school drama students and college stoner drop outs dressed like zombies played out various scenes of infected debauchery (zombauchery?). Some people drove from up to four hours away to take part in the event, which may mean something.

Resident Evil 5 In-Game Review

I've never been a big fan of the "Resident Evil" games, but dammit I can't get enough of these MSNBC.com "In-Game" reviews. I wonder why it's taken someone so long to realize this kind of idea. Of course, I suppose it could just be that no one has had the access of MSNBC. Either way, this game looks freakin' sweet. If only they could come up with a non-infuriating control scheme.

House of the Dead "F***s" Game Records

I remember being shocked to hear the word "shit" in "Final Fantasy VII" once upon a time, and needless to say, things have changed. Most mainstream M-rated video games these days should be packaged with a bar of soap to wash their mouths out with. Despite this, some games let their "f**k" flag fly so high that people can't help but take notice, even the people at The Guinness Book of World Records.

COD5 Delivers More Nazi Zombies

"Call of Duty 5: World at War" is one of those games that has eluded me since I first purchased my 360. My stoner roommate wanted me to buy it, and all of my friends that play games online have at one time or another asked me if I have it. As expressed on the podcast, hype tends to affect me a great deal when making purchasing and viewing decisions, but I can eventually broken down with the right sell, especially if "more nazi zombies" are part of that sell:

Kevin Tenney has been busy lately. First of all, he's been producing a remake of his 80's classic "Night of the Demons", which is actually looking like it will get some type of theatrical release.

Apparently he's also been working on a zombie film called "Brain Dead", and the news today is that it will be getting a limited theatrical release in just a few short weeks. March 30th, 2009 to be exact. Synopsis and trailer below:
