Despite his name, Keiji Inafune clearly isn't the wary type, opting to appear in public tomorrow and openly inviting gamers to inundate him with requests to sign their copies of Dead Rising
. The esteemed developer's latest game, yet another
entry into the zombie-ridden shopping mall sim genre, has already generated a great deal of buzz
, possibly because it allows you to beat undead cretons to a pulp with baseball bats, benches and finely matured wheels of cheese.
If you plan on attending the signing event tomorrow, here's what you need to know:
Date: Tuesday, August 8, 2006
Time: 4:00PM - 6:00PM
Location: EB Games, Redmond Town Center
16495 NE 74th Street
Redmond, Washington 98052 (Tel. 425-895-8331)
Demeanor: Approachable, but may unexpectedly and infrequently lunge
And don't forget, you'll actually
have to purchase a copy of the game in order to have it signed. There will be plenty of free Xbox t-shirts, however, no doubt meant to distract the crowd's inherent urge to tear Mr. Inafune limb from limb and devour his brain.
