Blue Castle to make Dead Rising 2

Friday, 7 November 2008 12:27 GMT By Mike


Eurogamer has been told by a source close to Canadian development team, Blue Castle, that the studio is working on Dead Rising 2.

“Everyone’s really excited; the team has obviously seen the rumours and it’s been hard to keep quiet, but they can’t wait to show off the game,” said the source.

“It’s getting around – there is something amazing being built here at Blue Castle behind locked doors.”

Blue Castle has previously developed two baseball titles with 2K Games: The Bigs and the recently announced MLB Front Office Manager.

No other details are forthcoming at this time. Capcom has declined to comment.

    I tagged it as 360 as I didn’t want to presumptuous as to whether it would go multiplat. It almost definitely will though, I reckon.

    Yeah, it will. They did (tried to do) a Wii version already, remember.

  4. Shatner

    Hmm. If no platforms have been announced at all then tagging it on *any* platform is the more presumptuous action to have taken, don’t you think?

    Just report the news. Don’t try and make it up.

  7. morriss

    There’s a highly likely outcome and a probably one. The highly likely one is that the game will be coming out on Xbox 360, the probable one is it’ll go over to PS3. I called it as I saw it.

    Report me to the Internet Videogaming Complaints Commission Misinformation FTL department if you must.

    #7 6 years ago
  8. Shatner

    So, in other words, your reasons for not being presumptuous are actually the same as your justification for being presumptuous.

    I’m not disputing the possibility of the probable formats. Just that whilst you claimed to avoid being presumptuous you were, in fact, doing precisely that.

    I’m losing more and more faith in your understanding of words morriss. Dreadful show so far today. All that Gears of Jizz nonsense has seeped into your head.

    I’m not going to argue with you. Talk to the boss about it, if it’s a problem.

    Shatner, you’re such a deluded hypocrite. It’s why I love you. <3

    Practise what you preach when you tell people to discuss the game instead of criticising everyone all the time.

    And there’s nothing presumptuous about his statement. Most gamers tend to have the attention span of a fish when it comes to remember relevant news, but Capcom stated months ago that the company would be going almost completely multi-format for future titles.

    You can all but guarantee that this will appear on the Xbox 360 *and* the PS3. The PS3 wasn’t even an issue when the original came out.

    Presumptuous is when you overstep your opinion and state things without due knowledge. Clearly the presumptuous one here right now is you Shatner.

    i’d say “pwned”, but that would be a waste of good English. *note sarcasm*

    *waits for Shatner to post a self-serving circular logic argument to “prove” otherwise, consistently indifferent to the fact the everyone thinks he’s… well… a douchebag*

    Hi Michael O’Internet Grudge. I see that “ignore him” advice you gave out to others is working out well for you.

    Oh, and predicting that a reply to a comment explicitly directed at someone doesn’t make you master of anything but the bleedin’ obvious. Nice attempt at looking smart though. Better luck next time!

    Have a nice day :D

    morriss, if reporting news as it is without peppering it with assumptions and spin goes against your morals or ideals then I’d say you were in the wrong profession. Except the games media habitually ADDS to news based on whatever they think is going to spice it up at the risk if sticking to the facts.

    Report the news. Don’t attempt to become it.

    #11 6 years ago
  12. Michael O'Connor

    Nice attempt at ignoring every point that proves you wrong, dipsit. <3

    of course, the fact that you attack *everyone’s* opinion doesn’t make you Shatner Grudge right? Because Shatner defies the laws of reality that apply to everyone else.

    you’re the only one ADDing, considering Capcom have already admitted future titles wouldn’t be format exclusive.

    #12 6 years ago
  13. Shatner

    Hmm. Yeah, not sure you’re “ignore him” schtick really means much when you can’t lead by example.

    Anyway, my point about morriss’ tragic application of being presumptuous directly shows how backwards his claims of avoiding being presumptuous are.

    Whatever you’re arguing about Mikeyboy, is all to do with your little internet vendettas. And I’d rather you didn’t call me a dipsit in future TYVM.

    Beyond that, please keep on demonstrating your RIGHTEOUS ANGER and selectively launch yourself into arguments that didn’t include you just so you can keep proving my point about internet grudges being correct.

    Until this title is given ANY platforms it is PRESUMPTUOUS to assign it any yourself. Which is by no means a crime – just a very very poor example of how to avoid being presumptuous. Looks like you’re really trying to clutch at straws to substantiate your INDIGNATION MoC but I’m afraid you’re arguing against things I never said. What was that about ADDING stuff Michael?

    Seems like your every comment only serves to validate my own.

    Thanks! :D

  15. Michael O'Connor

    “Anyway, my point about morriss’ tragic application of being presumptuous directly shows how backwards his claims of avoiding being presumptuous are.”

    But they weren’t presumptuous claims, because they’re stuff to back up the suggestion. Very solid evident that makes his “presumptions” always guaranteed to be true.

    A fact you seem intent to ignore while your stroke your own [strikethrough]cock[/strikethrough] ego in front of us all.

    Nobody impressed. It’s just not big enough, I’m afraid. <3

    #15 6 years ago
  16. Shatner

    Mocca, I’m not sure why you feel the need to be involved in this. morriss is, I’m certain, big enough and ugly enough to fight his own INTERNET WAR without you launching your little offensive.

    The fact remains that my point was about the application of presumption and in this instance.

    THE FACTS at this time are are the NO PLATFORMS have been announced for THIS TITLE.

    FACTS. Got that Michael? I’m not offending your sensibilities by sticking to the facts am I? I certainly hope not.

    So, ANY ADDITIONS TO THE FACTS at this time are based on presumptions and, therefore, a very poor example of avoiding that very same practice. Some would observe it was ironic. Others wouldn’t give a shit. I took issue with the author of the piece and the practitioner of said presumptuousness.

    You’re just flinging your ENRAGED MUD around and convincing yourself it’s sticking whilst showing little more than a worryingly unbalanced and needlessly offensive tirade on someone you’ve never met and to whom you advised others to ignore. Do you not see the laughable irony in your actions? I do!

    But, all the while, you keep proving my ‘internet grudge’ theories to be more and more valid.

    Please don’t stop :D

  26. Shatner

    Why do I care? I prefer information as it is, not a carefully filtered version with “added value” put in by the, largely clueless, games media.

    As it is, all the conversation is now all about the ‘extra’ information that morriss has added and not any of the concrete information that the article is (supposed to be) based on.

    This is where misinformation and misrepresentation starts. And, as always, the media will shrug their shoulders and claim they’re just telling it how it is and they’re not accountable for anything.

    Report the information. No need to add personal spin to it.

    There’s enough media sites adding ‘helpful’ spin and fabricating facts here and there which the ADD afflicted games culture forget the origin of and go about acting like Bill Gates promised them all free 360′s in 2009 just because some prat of a journalist added his personal musings to some company statement.

    Why is it so offensive a notion to simply stick to the facts of the piece? Shouldn’t accurate and clear information be the priority for a news site?

    I don’t think that’s an unreasonable expectation.

    #26 6 years ago
  27. Michael O'Connor

    “Why do I care? I prefer information as it is, not a carefully filtered version with “added details” put in by the games media.”

    Then go to a website that provides just that, dumbass.

    Do you actually think we’re going to suddenly “understand the errors of our ways” and think like you do if you keep whinging for long enough? Are you actually under the delusion that if you typed something enough, we’re gonna agree with you and do as you think?

    Oh wait… it’s you. Of course you think that.

    Seriously pat, what’s it gonna take to make you ban this dumbass? A PS4?

    #27 6 years ago
  28. Shatner

    Christ. He’s like a stalker! Staying silent until I utter any words and then he POUNCES within a 2-minute window!

    Now he’s using the collective term “we’re” as though my comments towards morriss apply to him so as to position himself as though I was ever taking an issue with him in the first place. Sorry Mikey, despite your semi-discrete efforts I don’t regard you as the writer of this article or an ‘official’ part of VG247. Trying to deliberately position yourself as though I was speaking to you simply so you can lash out is some pretty weak straw-man tactics.

    You’re still attempting to counter things I never even said. You seem to care little for what was said (or the fact it wasn’t even directed at you). It seems your only motivation to launch an attack is the fact it says “Shatner” above a comment.

    Still. Keep proving me right Mikeyboy. You seem to have a habit for it!

    As for a news site accurately reporting news – yes, it clearly seems that SOME folk do believe that’s an unreasonable expectation. Heck, it looks like some people consider having such expectations and expressing such opinions OUT LOUD to the author of an article to be a bannable offense. Hey Mikey, whatever happened to “oh, just ignore him”? You seem incapable of following your own advice and, instead, expressing your own intolerance of another’s opinion by requesting they be banned. Bless. When you can’t argue properly you’ll try any stunt to keep the other person silenced!

    Let’s see if Michael can contain his personal attacks on me for longer than a 120 second period than his last post.

    I hope you don’t suffer from high blood pressure Mikey. You seem to be very tense.

    “Do you actually think we’re going to suddenly “understand the errors of our ways” and think like you do if you keep whinging for long enough? Are you actually under the delusion that if you typed something enough, we’re gonna agree with you and do as you think?”

    S’funny, you seem to be hoping for precisely that effect. How odd that you consider your whining to be good and virtuous but another’s to be nothing but contemptable nonsense that must be silenced at all costs!

    I can’t believe you fail to see the irony in your statements. You’re just having one big silly internet joke aren’t you?!?

    Pull the other one. It’s motion sensitive.

    With all respect to the owners and writers on this site, this is a games site giving games news to gamers, not a scientific journal.

    Capcom has stated multiple times that it is done with platform exclusivity (though who knows what they will do if MS or Sony flash the cash in their face). IT IS safe to say that it is coming to both platforms… and maybe the Wii as well.

    Fair enough, Shatner, I’ve got no problem with you voicing your opinion. Just as long as you’re aware that it’s not going to change anything.

  34. Shatner

    So you’re saying, as a source for gaming news, this site ‘doesn’t matter’ Truk?

    Oh. That’s a shame. I can’t imagine VG247 would be too happy to be thought of as some worthless ‘me too’ games news site – or that their audience didn’t care for accurate information. Weren’t they hoping to win some games media award a week or two back?

    Funny the way people care/don’t care about accuracy or facts when they choose to.

    I’m not expecting a scientific journal Truk (but thanks for the deliberate misinterpration and exaggeration – you obviously must be a budding games journalist!), I’m just expecting clear, informative news from a site that has a refreshingly direct strapline of “This is the news”.

    Gee, imagine if a games console said one thing on the outside but was a bit different from its description when you got it going? I’m sure these gamers that you represent, Truk, they’d go bananas! They’d run to their internets and bleat all sorts of idignant rage about inaccuracy and misinformation! Funny how somedays you give a damn about accurate information and somedays you don’t.

    What a contrary lot you are :D

    Mortiferus: It may be safe, but – as I said clearly – at this time it is also presumptuous. So to do so and say that, in doing so, you’re avoiding being presumptuous is a contradiction in terms.

    Lots of people missing the original point here. Oh. Yeah. I forgot. They’re not very bothered about accuracy are they! ;)

    I do so enjoy “hey, everybody else has shitty standards so it’s wrong of you to expect anything different here” reasoning. It’s so wide of the mark that it’s almost cruel to criticise it. Almost.

    Good call mort! Sound logic! Let’s ALL aim to be substandard and unreliable! No point in trying any harder right?

    You know, the defenses of this site are damning with feint praise. On the one hand, it’s heartwarming that a herd faceless internet reactionaries all flock to lock down any opinion that doesn’t fit mob rule – such passion and loyalty is to be admired. It’s just such a shame that it’s manifested in such a series of poorly thought out statements.

    Don’t worry though guys, I’ll keep on expressing my dangerously unconventional opinions (sorry, did I say unconventional? I meant to say educated) for you to get some practice on to see if you can hone your skills into something that isn’t quite so reactionary.


    VG247: This is almost definitely the news :D

    “So you’re saying, as a source for gaming news, this site ‘doesn’t matter’ Truk?”

    No. Don’t twist my words.

    In the grand scheme of things, no, games don’t matter. I couldn’t give a shit whether some games news story is tagged incorrectly or not. I cannot comprehend the degree of fussiness that would be required.

    Could you explain to me how your opinions are educated? In what way are they eductated? Sub-atmomic analysis of the structure of a news story isn’t being educated; it’s being obsessive compulsive.

    Considering you’re so into acccurate truth, you might not want to make any assumptions as to what I think or who I am, you know, without actually getting the information you’d require to do so. I represent no gamers. I generally couldn’t give a damn what anyone else thinks or does. I am intrigued by abnormal behaviour, however.

    My intention is not to defend this site; they require no defence. I’d just like to know why you think it actually really matters whether a tag might, maybe, perhaps, if-you-look-at-it-from-this-angle, you-know, be incorrect (or that morriss is sometimes a little scattershot across his keyboard ;-)).

    Can you not interpret the news yourself? Do you have no filters? Are you not able to take a variety of sources, apply a little critical thinking and come up with your own conclusion? Must every piece of information presented be 100% certified as THE TRUTH?

    Games are entertainment. Loosen up.

    Anyway, I’m going for a beer (and to regret posting this so late on a Friday night).
