Video game maker, Capcom has just released more information about its upcoming game Dead Rising 2. The concept of the game is pretty basic. Kill more zombies then your friends lest ye become one yourself and suffer the humiliation of your friends incessant teasing.
Like any classic zombie killing game, you have the usual weapons at your disposal including guns and swords but this takes things to the next level by making almost anything at your disposal to be used as a weapon and of course things get crazy. One of the more unique “tools” at your disposal is a kayak paddle with two chainsaws attached to the blades.
I have always felt that kayak paddles were one step away from being effective zombie killing weapons and very glad that somebody else felt the same way. I’m really looking forward to giving it a try in real life the next time I can find two chainsaws and some old rope.
I could be just making this up but there are lots of rumours out there that Werner Paddles has developed a quick attachment system for chainsaws that will be available at your local paddling shop this upcoming Spring.
Props go out to the game designers for keeping everything as realistic as possible. Look carefully in the screenshot and you can the paddle drip rings and (what looks like) and nice carbon weave shaft.
