Dead Rising 2: Case West
Dead Rising 2: Case West Sees Return of Photography
Written By
View author's profile

Frank West. He's covered wars you know, and despite being absent for Dead Rising 2 - which means there'll be no photography - in Dead Rising 2: Case West, taking snaps of atrocities and erotica will be making a welcome return.

An interview with Dead Rising 2 dev, Rob Barrett on Eurogamer has the scoop, in which he states that West will be getting his lenses out again to take some awesome pictures.

"It's back. It's part of Frank. So when Frank comes back, so does the photography," said Barrett, confirming that the camera will be back in full effect for Dead Rising 2: Case West. Beautiful! 3000PP!

Bad-ass! Hope it's a bit longer than Case Zero though (Although at 400msp, Case Zero was good value), I'd prefer to pay a bit more, and get a longer game.

@3 my swedish friend you spell nice like that :). I understand it but maybe not everyone does :P. But this wasnt bitching i just thought i let you know in case you didnt know ;).

Ot : Should be fun to see how this turns out if you play coop with one player taking photos or if both does it.

It's nice to see Frank again but he should have left his camera at home... Maybe this time he got a small camera or phone camera, cos the camera in DR1 is straight from the year 1900 or so lol..

im jus hoping that its 400msp again. considering the success of case zero they might consider going up to 800 or something which would be really annoying coz if xbla were always 400 and of a similar quality to case zero then i would be buying a whole lot more of them

@7 I'm pretty sure he'd be using the sort of camera a photojournalist would use. The kind that may not be small and compact but takes a high quality photograph. You would not see a pro photograhper using a camera phone!

@7 i take it you've never seen a DSLR then? massive cameras + manual controls still win for the pros.

@7 your obviously clueless on photography, it looks like an slr camera to me, and as far as I know those are the best types of cameras you can buy (well affordable-ish anyway, there like £500!)

Anyway, this looks good I'll probs get this and zero at the same time :)

@15 nice reference.

In terms of camera, he's using a DSLR, most likely with a dual battery grip, which also has a second shutter you can take vertical photos better

Can't wait for this, Case Zero was great and a good value, so I'm hoping for more of the same.

Ending A - Chuck Greene dies. TK comes out the elevator and pulls him in and the elevator shuts and it then Katey and the other women flying off in the helicopter.

FANTASTIC! (but I'm getting tired of the worned out "He's covered wars, you know?" line in everything related to Frank West, wtf?! It's not even remotely funny...

Frank (to Chuck): This? This is a camera, want one? *Tosses a camera*
Chuck: Nice...

Good. I'm glad it won't be like the bastardized Wii remake of the first Dead Rising (personally, I think they changed too many gameplay mechanics to call that thing a port, and it should be distanced from the actual Dead Rising in as many ways as possible because it was awful).

So this is like Case Zero? As in, seperate from the main game? I'll definitely get this. Seeing as I won't be getting the game itself for some time post-release.

Since case zero has stuff that goes to DR2, does case west have that too? or does stuff from 2 copy over to case west?

It's been 2 weeks and still no new dlc for Dead Rising 2, besides Case West video, but that doesn't really count.

@ 28 photographers don't walk around while they are taking pictures.
