August 7th - 12th

Zombies! Hungh! Good gawd, y'all. What they are a good for?

Well, to name a few things: hitting with baseball bats, swinging golf clubs at, shooting with shotguns and uzis, kicking down stairs, slicing with a katana, whapping in the face with a searing frying pan, clubbing with cash registers, knocking down with a shopping cart, and most of all putting silly hats upon and taking pictures of. While there may be nothing grammatically good about the previous sentence what with its mangled prepositional phrases and lack of structure, the promise of escalating zombie abuse is clearly enough to send me into a gibbering nonsense of violent glee. Our Game of the Week, Dead Rising, will finally answer the question: how many zombies can I kill before I just don't want to kill zombies any more. My guess is that, that number is best expressed in scientific notation with a nice big exponential component. Something like ten to the power of awesome! Even as I found myself wandering a mall this afternoon, I kept my eye out for both shambling undead and the things with which I would abuse them. Remember, all zombies must die!

This is going to be hard.

If this game had co-op I might've bought an XBOX360 for it.

Wha.. what? Brick is supposed to be fantastic. And how about Inside Man? Didn't that get above average reviews?

But ya, I wish I had a 360 so I could smash some zombie heads.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm going to be playing Rock'Em Sock'Em Robots this week!

Good week to save some money.

I am going to come out and say that Dead Rising 2 will possibly be the greatest game ever. All it has to do is fix complaints people have with the first one and add co-op, along with co-op high-five moves, as NOTHING is cooler than giving a buddy a high five after going back to back and slaughtering a horde of zombies.

Hell yes. Why kill zombies when you can have brightly colored robots duke it out in a boxing ring?

No if the add 16 player co-op with zombies harder to kill and or alot more zombies and zombie dogs, then we are good to go.

Just the thought of seeing 16 of us slaughtering zombies side-by-side is giving me chills.

"Lobster, look out behind yo----NNNNNOOOOOO!"

"Alright, who gets to kill him before he turns into an undead and starts chomping on Edwin?"

"Ohpleasepickmepleasepickme..."

Any other u-boat enthusiasts around?

Can we use one to kill zombies in a 16-player co-op?

If so, hells yes.

There is co-op... I suppose the convoys may be transporting zombies as well.
