You'll be able to add a touch more conventional warfare to Dead Rising 2 today with the "Soldier of Fortune" DLC. This $2 add-on includes military clothing and gives Chuck's guns increased power, accuracy and ammunition. Shooting zombies? With guns? Sounds pretty unorthodox, but it might work.

The short answer to "What Would Chuck Do?" in Dead Rising 2 is: Murder the undead. But perhaps you'd like to see the long answer play out in the latest trailer for the game? Good, 'cause we've got it for you here. (Oh, and part of the answer involves giant teddy bears -- just so you know.)

Ah, duct tape. So versatile. In fact, so important that the United States government has it listed as an official item in the basic emergency supply kit. Dead Rising 2's Chuck Greene was prepared, as evidenced by this launch trailer for the zom-pocalypse action game.

According to andriasang.com, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero will hit Xbox Live in Japan starting September 8.

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero is kind of difficult to judge. While it is a standalone title, it's not really a full game per se. It is, essentially, DLC for a game that hasn't been released yet, an extension of Dead Rising 2. Of course, no one has had that experience yet, meaning that Case Zero serves d...
