Oh, dear reader, we don't even know where to begin. In this Japanese trailer for Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop for Wii, a zombie punk band entertains the entire cast of the game, zombies included. Witness flying chainsaws, slap-happy security guards and a very pushy, mic-stealing Frank West. The w...

Maybe that should be a little less Dead Rising, considering, but we love all versions of the game like ice cream, so in the end, it hardly matters.

Ladies, let us give you a tip for when the zombie apocalypse goes down: pack extra pants. We're not sure what could cause the ladies trapped in the Willamette Mall to lose the lower half of their outfits, but, sure enough, that's the reality here in Dead Rising: Chop 'Til You Drop.

The latest Dead Rising: Chop 'Til You Drop trailer is a lot like watching someone else play the game -- someone else just dying to show off all their moves, that is. See Frank on a skateboard! See Frank break necks! See Frank fight bosses! See Frank take out multiple zombies with one shotgu...

File this one under a big ol' label of what: apparently, we haven't yet seen the "final" version of Dead Rising: Chop 'Til You Drop. Considering we've seen tons of video and screenshots, and people have actually played it, we're starting to wonder just what's going on. According to Nintendo Everyt...

Click to embiggen Here it is, just what we asked for: the maintenance tunnel in Dead Rising: Chop 'Til You Drop versus the same area in the original. In the Xbox version of the title, the tunnels were a grueling challenge, a never-ending sea of grasping hands, and here, it looks like ... well, t...

We've had Dead Rising on the mind for the past 24 hours, thanks in part to a bit of reassurance on the part of Nintendo Power. But, in looking at the Xbox 360 version of the game and how Xbox Live made available some DLC, we were wondering what kind of content you wouldn't mind paying for in Dead ...

Here, too, is one game in...
