Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One or Steam game on Twitch for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. It's like a live podcast, only you also get to watch a game while chatting with our awesome readers and viewers!
Tonight we played Dead Rising Triple Pack, the Xbox One collection of zombie brawlers from Capcom. Dead Rising is famous for its huge hordes of zombies, wide variety of weapons, and wacky outfits. Read on for quick impressions, contest winners, and the full video replay.
Dead Rising Triple Pack
Capcom released three retail Dead Rising games on the Xbox 360, starting with the first Dead Rising in 2006. The Dead Rising Triple Pack brings back all three titles on Xbox One, now running at native 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second (most of the time) with Vsync enabled. All DLC costumes are included too!
- Dead Rising: Frank West, a photojournalist, finds himself trapped in a packed mall during a zombie outbreak.
- Dead Rising 2: Chuck Greene must fight to find the Zombrex drug that will prevent his daughter from succumbing to the zombie virus. Features 2-player online co-op!
- Dead Rising: Off the Record – A remix of Dead Rising 2, Off the Record features a different story with Frank West in the lead, as well as an action-packed Sandbox mode and online co-op.
The Dead Rising series is known for throwing huge hordes of zombies on-screen and giving players plenty of creative ways to beat them up. Frank and Chuck will wield dozens of wacky weapons and dress up in colorful costumes as they battle endless packs of zombies, malicious survivors, and evil government agents.
We've already called Dead Rising 3 one of the most underrated games on Xbox One. Watch us play the games that started it all, and then you'll be ready for Dead Rising 4 when it launches in December!

We streamed Dead Rising Triple Pack for ~100 minutes. During that time, we gave out a total of six prize codes:
- 6 $10 Xbox gift cards (Redeemable on US accounts)

How to watch Twitch livestreams
What's the best way to experience Twitch? The Twitch website on your PC or Mac web browser. If you don't have or prefer not to use a computer, you can get the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Xbox 360 Twitch apps and watch from the comfort of your couch. Android and iOS both have official and unofficial Twitch apps to choose from as well.
On Windows Phone, you'll have to grab an unofficial app. There are several to choose from, each with different strengths and weaknesses. Only one app lets you search directly for our channel, though. If you use the others, you'll have to find and follow us from a web browser first. Read the roundup to learn more!

These games are so much silly fun. Looking forward to it.
The movies on the Crackle app on Xbox are amazingly fun also.
Looking forward to it. With all these big games coming out and being streamed, hope the indies aren't forgotten. I always love watching them and having a chance to win them!
I played the second one some. Never beat it. Never played the original. I'm excited for zombie slaying! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
Never played these before, but seemed like the rare game that's more fun to watch in stretches than actually play (GTA is the only other one that immediately comes to mind). I'll aim to be there, but have a family obligation beforehand.
Won't be free volunteering tonight.
I'll be there for some zombie fun.
I haven't played these games yet, but now with the Triple Pack available for the Xbox One, I may just have to buy it!
I'm there! DR is a fun zombie killing game, only thing I don't like its I can't save everyone in time.
Awesome game... Make me want to smack some zombies around and put hard on them... Hehehe great steam Paul and co-hosts... Yall always delivers great streams...
Enjoyed the stream, thanks :) Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
Does this mean there won't be any backwards compatability for DR 1 & 2? :(
