I guess tits and horror do go together.

Just got a press release from Capcom about Dead Rising 2. Now, i normally don't care about tiny additions to games that get a gazillion-worded praise letter to tell the world. However, this tickled my funny bone. Long story short, playboy has bought advertising space in DR2. and they're using it to excess.

 Now, I get why Capcom and Hugh Hefner's Totally Awesome Life Dream teamed up for this. Horror and boobies always go great together. Plus, tits sell anything. Got a 20-gallon vat of fecal matter with a nice slimy layer of vomit on top? Put a pair of tits next to it and someone will buy it! I just feel that this team-up seems quite shameless. It may even be telegraphing the idea that DR2 isn't so good, so they're putting a set of baps next to the poo and puke to make it look more attractive.

We'll all know the quality of Dead Rising 2 later this year, but my expectations have now gone from "meh" to "blech."
