Dead Rising 2 Summary
Dead Rising 2 and its standalone expansion Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will both make the transition over to Steamworks today, ditching.
Anyone who owns the games either through Steam or in boxed retail form can net a free Steamworks copy, though if you bought directly from GFWL you're out of luck.
It's a mass zombie outbreak on Steamworks - Capcom's undead-smiting hits Resident Evil 5, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising: Off the Record are all migrating over to Valve's platform "early next year".
These are the latest Games For Windows Live titles to make the switch to a server framework people generally don't despise with every fibre of their being.
Capcom Vancouver has removed the time-sensitive gameplay of the previous Dead Rising games from Dead Rising 3, but they do provide a 'nightmare mode' where "time is tight" and saves are restricted to washrooms.
They didn't want that as the default experience as they open it up to newcomers. It's a "much grittier game" set 10 years after Dead Rising 2; has three times the zombies.
What's coming to the Xbox Live Marketplace? Right now five titles have just been added to Games on Demand which include Quantum Theory, Ben 10 Omniverse and Kinect Disneyland Adventures.
The current Deal of the Week is everything zombie related as Zombie Apocalypse, All Zombies Must Die!, Zombie Wranglers and other zombie DLC gets 50% off until February 18th.
