Dead Rising 2 and WoW 4.0.1

Dead Rising 2

If you're not tired of all out zombie slaughter fests yet, Dead Rising 2 has something fun for you! The game puts you in the guise of Chuck Greene and starts you out on the T.I.R. game show, after a few short cut scenes you jump into action riding around mowing down Zombies with dual chain saws attached to a stunt street bike, followed by a few more cut scenes that set up the story for the rest of the game.

One of the features I found most interesting is something that the game was advertised for, namely creative ways to decapitate, destroy, or other wise dismember some Zombies. Weapons you saw on the commercials such as the Chainsaw Paddle are just one of the many interesting weapons you will find in the game. My personal favorite is shown below... Have you ever wanted to be a Zombie slaying Jedi? Well, Dead Rising 2 gets you as close as possible, they call the weapon a "Laser Sword", but all us true SciFi geeks know what it's supposed to be.

(I am getting FRAPS to make better quality movies in the future)

Over all, a fun game, with some interesting features, but still contains classic RPG features such as character stats, level based progression, and questing. Pick it up if you're in the mood for blood, guts, and motorcross mayhem!

World of Warcraft 4.0.1

Recently Blizzard released the Talent, Skill, and UI update to get players ready for the upcoming expansion Cataclysm. A lot of people like the changes, but as always there are those who are unwilling or unable to adjust, or just plain dont like changes. Human nature I supposed, but one thing that I've found is that the only thing that is sure and constant in life is that things will change, nothing ever stays the same. If you want to see a list of the most recent changes, a lot of them are listed in the patch notes. There have been a lot of changes to almost every class, if you haven't tried out your new Talent specs yet, its time to get moving. The new expansion is coming December 7th, 2010!
