Dead Rising is coming to the Wii, with hack and slash gameplay

One of my favorite games on the X-Box 360 is coming to the Wii! “Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop” follows the story of “Frank West, an overly zealous freelance journalist on a hunt for the scoop of a lifetime. In pursuit of a juicy lead, he makes his way to the small suburban town of Willamette only to find that it has become overrun by zombies. Frank escapes to the local shopping mall” where the real fun begins (Source: IGN).

While the graphics might not be as slick as they were on the 360, the Wii offers a way for gamers to enter the zombie infested mall in a whole new way as you’ll have to hack/slash and point/shoot the Wii controller at the flesh eaters to survive. With 10,000 zombies coming at you, I can only imagine how tired your arm will be after a few hours of gameplay. Keep reading to watch a video showcasing the gameplay (gory/graphic violence).

I was checking out a mix of videos on Pwn or Die (dot) com when I found this hysterical Mortal Kombat spoof video, “Mortal Kombat – Finish Him!”

In the video, “The Emperor of Outworld is out for more than blood as Sub Zero and Liu Kang fight to the death.” The graphics and acting are top notch and perfectly match the original game’s look, feel, and voice over commands.

If you haven’t watched “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” yet, then you should drop everything and go watch it now! Then come back here so I can tell you about “Captain Hammer: Be like me! Nemesis of Dr. Horrible!”, a short online comic book from Dark Horse Comics. The comic features non other than Joss Whedon’s Captain Hammer, a hero that thinks he’s SUPER (with of course an appearance by Dr. Horrible himself).

The comic was penned by Zack Whedon with art by Eric Canete. You can read it here.

The WWE is teaming up with THQ for a wrestling game that even I can get excited about (I stopped watching wrestling while it was still the WWF). “Legends of Wrestlemania” is coming to the Playstation 3 and X-Box 360, and lets players “relive, rewrite, and redefine the greatest moments in WWE history.”

Read on for more details and a teaser trailer for the game.

G4 Network talked to Mark Millar about his new graphic novel “War Heroes”, the film adaptation of his ongoing series “Kick-Ass” by Matthew Vaughn (Stardust), and his proposed “Superman” film trilogy that he has pitched to the WB with an unknown director. The interview then talks to “War Heroes” artist Tony Harris about the upcoming book.

The “Superman” info comes in at around the 5 minute mark, and I gotta say, it sounds really interesting. The idea of a 7 hour epic “Superman” story broken up among 3 films and shot back to back to be released every year sounds like a dream come true. Millar thinks he’ll be getting word if the WB wants to go with his proposed project within two to three weeks and ideally they would shoot next summer.

“Burn After Reading” is the Coen Brother’s follow up to “No Country for Old Men”. It stars Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, Tilda Swinton, and J.K. Simmons. In the film, Pitt and McDormand portray “unscrupulous” gym employees that find a disk that contains the memoirs of a CIA agent (Malkovich) and the adventure they find themselves in when they try to sell it. Yahoo has released a new scene from the film featuring stars Pitt and McDormand.
