title="Permanent Link to Resident Evil 5, Dead Rising 2 dropping Games for Windows Live in favor of Steamworks">residentevil5







I don't know about you, but I'm at the point now that when I hear about games transitioning away from Games for Windows Live, my immediate reaction is surprise that there are still games out there using Games for Windows Live. But there are, among them the popular Capcom titles Resident Evil 5 and Dead Rising 2 but not for much longer.



"If you're a fan of smashing zombies (and/or zombie-like Majini) on your PC, then we've got some good news for ya - RE5, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record are all coming to Steamworks early next year. With the global popularity of the Steamworks platform, we ve seen high demand from fans to bring these highly requested titles to this platform," Capcom announced in a new Capcom Unity post. "Moving to Steamworks will allow more fans across the world to enjoy these games."



Games for Windows Live has been trapped in a sort of existential limbo for quite some time now: It was rumored last year that the service would be closed down this summer, a story Microsoft did nothing to counter by either word or deed until a week before it was expected to happen, when it announced that it was "continuing to support the Games for Windows Live service." And yet it remains effectively dead in the water, slowly bleeding out the few games that haven't already abandoned it. At this stage, whether or not Microsoft continues to support GfWL is virtually irrelevant, because nobody else is.



More information about all the transition will be revealed once launch dates for the Steamworks versions of the games have been settled.

And another E3 announcement misses the conference. Earlier this week, Dead Rising 3 appeared on the Steam database, leading to speculation that it was coming to PC. Capcom have now confirmed that speculation with a trailer, and with the words "Dead Rising 3 for PC".







According to the trailer's description, "PC gamers will be able to experience the hordes of horror at high PC resolutions with fully optimized visuals for the wide screen, upgraded textures on characters, backgrounds and in-game objects". In other words, it'll be a PC game. Next, they'll be telling us it will have Steam achievements and trading cards... oh, wait. "Dead Rising 3 for PC will include Steam platform support with Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Trading Cards, global leaderboards and full game controller support."



Anyway, a new Dead Rising. If you've played a previous one, you'll know what to expect: silly costumes, crafted weapons and an absurd number of zombies.

Capcom Vancouver, the studio behind Dead Rising 2 and its various spin-offs, is hiring for what it calls Capcom's "next big game." This comes just after we spotted "Dead Rising 3" on an animator resume, but Vancouver may not be working on the sequel.

The page teasing the new game explicitly says "No Zombies," and suggests that the new project will avoid touching any of Capcom's legacy properties. Either the Vancouver studio is being cheeky about Dead Rising 3, or it's moving on to a brand new franchise. That would put DR3 in the hands of another studio at Capcom, assuming the previous rumors are correct.

The available positions include upper ranks, like senior producer and design director, along with engineering positions. That makes sense, because the new game is said to be just starting and the positions are only half-filled.

Capcom seems prepped for another entry in the Dead Rising franchise, unsurprising considering the financial success of Dead Rising 2. Mention of a sequel has popped up on a resume, suggesting Capcom is prepped to make an announcement soon.

A LinkedIn resume (via Joystiq) from a cinematic rigger lists "Dead Rising 3" among his resume, alongside trailers for games like Halo 4 and the upcoming Dark Souls 2. The resume comes from Blur Animation Studios, which does quite a bit of work on cinematics for games and film.

More than a year ago, rumors circulated claiming it will feature a new protagonist again. This one is said to star a mechanic named Rick in Los Perdidos, California, who has to deal with infected illegal citizens, a bomb that threatens to destroy the town, and a broken down plane as his means of escape.

Announcement - Valve
Freaks of the night, rejoice! Steam has unleashed monster savings on ghoulish (and not so creepy) titles. From now until about the time all the pumpkins are smashed*, over 80 titles (including The Walking Dead, Bioshock, Left 4 Dead, and many more) are available at prices so low, it’s scary.
