What: Greene’s Hardware Super Sale (Dead Rising 2 Community Event)
Where: 2147 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026
When: 8PM – 12 Midnight on Friday September 10th 2010
Yesterday I ventured down to Sunset Blvd and went to the Dead Rising party or as they were calling it a community event. The store it was held in was set up to be a fake hardware store with tons of flyers covering the walls. They had most of the weapons from the game on shelves inside the store. I tried to take pictures but a bunch of them came out blurry. Next time I will remember to bring a better camera than my Droid.
As I walked farther I entered a larger warehouse looking room where there were a ton of PS3s and Xbox 360s set up so you could test out the new Dead Rising 2 game. They also had more weapons available to take pictures with including a rocket launcher, a freedom bear, a sticky bomb, a shotgun, a beer helmet and a few more weapons that I can't remember. I was a little sad they didn't have a fake chainsaw lying around but what are you going to do.
Aside from the game testing they had free pizza and soda. They also gave out some badass shirts just for being there. If you tested your skills out at the Tape it or Die table you received a free poster.
Here's some pictures from the event:
