    I love this trailer so much. It even dashes in some self-parody too which was a great touch. 
     

     Instantaneously better than default DR2.

    I am a huge dead rising fan but I am becoming more and more disillusioned with the franchise. I will still end up buying this day one, not sure it will click with me though.

    That was a pretty funny trailer, actually :)
     
    I liked how disappointed Frank was at the end when he got the call. That's probably how a lot of folks feel when playing the game: "Hey, stop having fun and come save me from this store in the next 5 minutes!!!"
     
    The fact that this game even exists is so damn strange. I'm hoping there will be enough new content here for this to be worth a purchase, but I have a feeling that won't be the case.

    Two scenes where zombies were plowed by amusement park rides. Somebody at blue castle saw Zombieland a bunch.

    It was a great way for them to highlight exactly why I, and many others, can't fucking stand these games.  Good to see how little Capcom continues to give a shit about progress.  Yes, keep making the same gameplay mistakes over and over again, only over-developing the story into a convoluted and incoherent mess that only the select that had been paying attention from act one could possibly give a fuck about.  This is why I don't play Capcom games.

    Mixed on Dead Rising thanks to the controls & way some of the gameplay is handled (UI/inventory/missions) but if this is just a open world area of fun then I'll at least be interested in giving this a try.

    @HatKing: Whoa calm down buddy.I don't really think DR was ever about the story anyway it is just a way to give you direction and some understanding.It's not meant to be complex and thinking enducing.DR is the only series I really like from Capcom.Megaman was good it had it's run.Street Fighter eh I dunno after SFIV came out I kind of thought it was good but dissapointed that they took out all those awesome EX characters and put in a ton of shitty ones.Besides that I can't think of any other Capcom franchises.DR is just good, bloody, hard, at times frustrating fun.

    @Agent47: What I mean is that the only thing that seems to change between Capcom sequels is the story, but always far to wildly.  Can anybody sum up the Resident Evil story in fewer than 10,000 words?  How about Devil May Cry?  Street Fighter?  Now look at the first iteration of these games compared to the latest.  Resident Evil is the only one that really shows any drastic gameplay improvements, and even they feel outdated now.  The Capcom design philosophy is a good summary of most of Japanese game development and why it is suffering today.  Only a few Japanese studios are (artistically) thriving right now and it's the studios who're pushing things and giving us what we've never seen before (think Team ICO).

    This is the game I wanted when I paid $60 for DR2 the first time. Uggghhh. But it actually looks funny in a Looney-Toons-by-way-of-John-Romero-by-way-of-Japan sort of... way. Damn you Dead Rising team, you will probably be getting my money again.

    I don't know if I would generalize that broadly about Capcom's entire suite of games on offer, but I get where you're coming from on DR2, it's certainly not for everyone and I see why it's so divisive. I personally enjoyed the game a lot in spite of its jank and some antiquated design decisions, but I know a lot of people hate the time limit-based mechanic, so I was just poking a little fun ;)

    The squirt gun at the end removed all worries I had about this game.
