In a gushing discharge of death, the new Rise of Nightmares trailer shows off the game's first-person, Kinect-driven gameplay as (mostly) undead bodies are ripped, rent and skewered from one end of the screen to the other. While watching, try to imagine how the motion controls figure into all of this as the violence reaches comical heights. Take a look and see for yourself:
That sure beats fishing or petting a virtual pet tiger. Obviously, the Dixieland tune accompanying the carnage is a clue that the developers are a bit tongue-in-cheek about bone-splintering wounds and screens splattered with blood — but just in case you still find it offensive, quit being so serious and pause at the 47-second mark to get a good look at a man attached to a chihuahua body. Scientifically, that's just funny.
Rise of Nightmares looks like it could be a great guilty pleasure, and we can't wait to see more when it comes out on Sept. 6.
