    Wikia Update 04/27/14

    April 28, 2014 by Nixerix

    I thought it was due time to bring another update to the active editors here on the wikia just to talk about a few things that have happened since the merge for those interested.


    • All of the content from the other dead rising wikia has now been imported which included all of their pages and pictures. We didn't get their videos for some odd reason, but our video library has remained intact. Any imported article will have PAGENAME/import as the title, with an import tag on the page, to make it easier for us to merge the two articles together. During the initial merge, there was confusion with the wikia staff and the imported pages were imported as DRW PAGENAME. This has been fixed however.
    • If you see a page that you don't think we don't need (such as IP Address user pages from anonymous users), please mark it as a candidate for deletion. Because I am the only active admin, I'm the only one who can delete pages, but I have been working hard at getting this place cleaned up and have deleted …

    It's been awhile since I've posted any kind of blog, and I feel that I should be trying to keep the current editors 'in the loop' so to speak about what's happening on the wikia, and to ask your opinions about how the wikia is run. There are a few things I'd like to bring to everybody's attention.


    I recently gave rollback rights to Alockwood1. This will be greatly helpful to all users on wikia, as he is able to patrol for any spammers or counter productive edits if I'm not around. This will allow us to keep the wikia cleaner. :)


    The users who originally worked on/founded the wikia eventually left to a different site, but have now decided to come back to wikia. The owner of the other website is no longer an active editor, and left me (largely) to decide what information we would like moved over, and what we would like to do in terms of merging. I've tried to contact the admins on the site, but they have not responded and it looks abandoned.

    If you'd like a detailed thread of the conversat…

    Adoption of this wiki.

    September 17, 2013 by Nixerix

    As I have come to find out by editing on this wiki, there is another active site for users to edit information on Dead Rising, and most of the active editors and admins have moved over to that new site. 

    While they strive to make a difference at a different location, it still leaves this wiki somewhat abandoned and in need of an admin or a bureaucrat to make the necessary changes to locked pages, to ban users who are in need of banning and to watch over the other aspects of the wiki. Even if there are two different sources for information pertaining to the same subject, it still stands that there are many wikia users who look to this site for help and assistance. Work needs to be done here as well.

    I would like to take the opportunity to adopt the wiki myself. Wikia will not allow me to do this without some sort of community support. I am passionate about wikia as a valuable site of information, and am an admin of two other wikias. I have knowledge and the ability to improve this wikia …

I've posted a few notifications besides this one so you can't miss them. Make sure you read the to do list and ask Anno1404 if you need help know exactly what to do. If you had user rights (admin, rollback etc.) that are gone when you recreate your account at the new site, let me know and I'll give them back. Thanks. Jax-Kenobi 01:11, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

    Dead Rising 2: Case West, which will allow players to play co-op as Chuck Greene and Frank West on the Xbox 360, will be available on December 27th, just in time for the holidays! The standalone game (you won't need to have purchased Dead Rising 2 but it'd be nice if you did) will cost 800 MS Points. More from the official blast:

    Exclusive to Xbox LIVE Chuck is joined by Dead Rising’s very own Frank West as the two infiltrate the Phenotrans Facility in an attempt to uncover the company’s murky dealings.

    With all new content, new combo weapons to create, new enemies to test them on and the return of the ability to capture those magic moments on camera, Dead Rising 2: CASE WEST continues the Dead Rising 2 experience in both single and co-op play.

    Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Capcom brings you Dead Rising for the iPhone and iPod touch, because nothing says holiday cheer like carving up a zombie with a chainsaw.

    Like the console game, you play as Frank West, a freelance photojournalist on the hunt for the scoop of a lifetime. Utilizing makeshift weapons scavenged from the stores and displays, you battle against waves of zombies in the hopes of surviving and making you way to freedom.

    Zombie hunters the world over know that nothing gives you the munchies like fighting off a flesh-starved undead maw. Dead Rising therefore includes a game mechanic that requires the player to scavenge for mall food to stay alive.

    Finally, just because it’s a zombie apocalypse doesn’t mean you can’t be social. When you die in the game you’ll have the opportunity to send out a distress call via Facebook or Twitter to your friends. If you’re revived, you and your rescuers will receive a bonus. However, if you die, you’ll rise as a powerfu…

    Following on from the success of Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2: CASE WEST will extend the zombie slaying antics of Dead Rising 2 by delivering brand new content and the return of a familiar face. Intrepid photojournalist and star of the original Dead Rising, Frank West, is back from covering wars and arrives in Fortune City to investigate Phenotrans and find proof of its involvement with the zombie outbreaks.

    Set immediately after the events of Dead Rising 2 and available exclusively on Xbox LIVE, Dead Rising 2: CASE WEST sees Frank team up with Chuck Greene for some serious co-op action as the pair embarks on a brand new case set in the Phenotrans Facility on the outskirts of Fortune City.

    Here Chuck and Frank will face new challenges and new enemies but will also have access to new weapons, items and the ability to create a number of new Combo weapons such as the janitor’s favourite, the ‘Zap & Shine’ and the ominous sounding ‘Reaper’. Just as in the full game, players will …

    So, seems like Dead Rising 3 is (edit: possibly) official.

    Read this.

    Yay!!!!

    "Being careful not to confirm any story details, Capcom COO David Reeves told CVG that more digital releases are almost a dead cert - and will "bridge a link" between Case Zero and Dead Rising 3.
    "Obviously, with all of that success on Dead Rising 2, it makes sense to move onto Dead Rising 3," said Reeves. "I think that they [developer Blue Castle Games] may extend it by bringing in new characters and new interactions, or bring back others from before." --Taken from here

    Also good to know - DR2 has sold over 4 million copies in less than two months. GREAT SUCCESS.

    Amazon has officially reported that, for unknown reasons, the release of the Servbot Head and Ijiek Jacket items for your Xbox 360 avatar have been delayed. Indefinatly. No reason was ever given as to why. Originally, Amazon offered $10 store credit for the initial delay.


    However, due to the cancelation of this pre-order bonus, those who pre-ordered the Xbox 360 version of Dead Rising 2 from Amazon should have now received an e-mail offering ANOTHER $10 in store credit and 50% discount on Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds for your trouble.


    I do not beleive this affects anyone who pre-ordered the PS3 or PC versions of the game.


    Source: Game Informer


    EDIT

    I just have to point this out: Marvel Vs Capcom 3 (Xbox) is currently 57.99 on Amazon.

    That %50 off deal will take the price down to $28.99.

    Add the store credit you also got: $18.99.

    DR3 - possible?

    October 14, 2010 by Mistertrouble189

    So, I forget where, but didn't Keiji say he'd make DR3 if sales were awesome and such, like over a million units? I know DR1 sold 1 million units by end of 2006 after its release (according to a source on wikipedia).

    According to this, released by Capcom, DR2 sold 2 million units so far. Pretty good, compared to the other games released.

    This is a positive image right? Less than a month and 2 million units sold. DR3 is a possibility?

    EDIT: Disregard the last source as that was just a "sales projection" wow completely wrong thing haha...but GOOD NEWS, they sold 2 million in a month, not 3 haha.

    On September 15th, Capcom announced a second downloadable episode titled "Case West". The Xbox 360 exclusive features the return of Frank West, the hero of the previous Dead Rising, in a new story that occurs shortly after the events of Dead Rising 2. Frank must team up with Chuck Greene, the protagonist of Dead Rising 2, in order to stop an unknown zombie threat and clear Chuck's name of any involvement. The episode includes a co-op feature allowing 2 players to complete the game as each character. "Case West" is expected to be released shortly after Dead Rising 2 on September 28th.

    This pretty much confirms it's coming in October. Possibly for 400 points? or 800? Hell I'll buy it for 1200.

    KEA BRAND NED DLC GAME HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED! Dead Rising 2: Case West! This is the epilogue game to the DR2 aspect of the series.


    Capcom just announced at TGS that the Dead Rising 2: Case Zero prologue sold over 500,000 copies in under 2 weeks. With that knowledge, one can understand why they'd do an epilogue such as: Dead Rising 2: Case West.

    Keiji Inafune revealed that the DLC will take place after the events of Dead Rising 2 and feature Frank West (of the original Dead Rising) working with latest protaganist Chuck Greene. Inafune concluded, "Apologies to PS3 fans, but this too will be an Xbox 360 exclusive." We'll update as we learn more.

    And it's like zombie horror game Dead Rising, but with a samurai.

    Samurai Dead Rising is an online anime collaboration between Capcom and famed Japanese illustrator and character designer Norio Shioyama to promote Dead Rising 2. Shioyama did the drawings and animation himself (you know, instead of having his assistant do it!).

    This is the first of what looks to be a series of online videos.

    Is Frank West in DR2?!

    September 10, 2010 by Neo Deus

    Johnny Pipes has written a new blog post, which may hint at the possibility of Frank West being in Dead Rising 2. While it doesn't come out and say anything, there are a few things that would seem to tease at it.

    1. The post has to do with a camera (okay, a phone camera, but let's roll with it).
    2. JP says "Fantastic" at one point.
    3. When thinking of names of the mystery person, he considers both "Phil" and "Floyd", both of which start with the same F sound as Frank.
    4. The main reason is this picture:


    Check out the guy on the right of Chuck. That could just be a co-op player wearing a dark jacket and everything, but it seems a little suspect to me. That was Frank's outfit, after all.

    Now, I didn't really like Frank much as a character, but still, if he's somehow involved in Dead Rising 2, that's pretty significant. But maybe I'm reading too much into it. What do you guys think?

    According to GamerBytes, more than 328,000 people have purchased Case 0 in its first week of availability.

    "As of now the Leaderboards show that over 328,290 players have given Case 0 a go, and that's in less than 7 days -- an amazing feat. Money wise, assuming Microsoft take a 30% cut on the game, Capcom could well have made $1,149,015 off of it for this week alone."

    So how many of you guys have already got it? At only $5, it was practically an automatic buy for me. The combo weapons are a lot of fun, and I really like zombie bowling too (using the bowling ball as a weapon).

    According to this article, Case Zero, set to be released about once month before Dead Rising 2, will be priced at 500 Yen for the Japanese market. For the U.S., that lies a little over five dollars, so the English cost will possibly be $5 or $10, (400 or 800 Microsoft Points).

    Also: The game will work as any other arcade title. It will serve as the demo for Dead Rising 2, meaning you can play a portion of the game for free. However, you must pay to get the game in it entirety. It is unknown whether or not that means Case Zero's achivements will be locked until purchase, or if you can get them right away.
