Dead Rising: The Remake

Now there’s a photographer who’s been in wars!

In a shocking turn of events, and very exciting ones for me, the original Dead Rising is getting a full remaster that is also coming to PC. The ridiculously named ‘Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster’ (Digital Edition anyone?) will be a fairly standard remaster with generally the same gameplay, updated visuals and framerate but will also come with quality of life additions such as autosaves and improved controls (hopefully it also improves the escort AI of the original game).

The reason why this is big for me is that I adored the original game and never really got into any of the sequels. I had a fun time with Dead Rising 2, but there was something really enjoyable about the first game’s slight jank and bigger skew towards realism which made the ridiculous stuff it did all the more funny and enjoyable. As such, you can bet I’ll be keeping my eye on this. If it turns out not to suck like many remasters/remakes do nowadays then I’ll be picking it up, and I won’t have to wait for long as it comes out on September 19th of this year! Check out the game’s Steam page right here.

That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
