Normally I wouldn’t mention a game like Dead Rising 2. It isn’t my kind of game, really.
But back at GDC there was this mystery booth where the… uh… actors who were staffing it were giving out anti-zombie injections and Zombrex related information. But they played the whole thing as though it were totally serious and never mentioned any video game connection.
And so we were all trying to figure out what was going on with this bit of stage craft.
Some research later connected Zombrex with Dead Rising, but that was about it.
Now, however, Dead Rising 2 – Zombrex Edition has been announced, closing the loop on this otherwise minor event in most of our lives.
Some of the goodies that come with edition were the same items that they were handing out at GDC.
I still have the syringe pen, the band aid, and that poster in the back of the picture.
And… well… that is about all I have to say on the subject. I won’t be buying the game, but I still think the pen is pretty cool.
