Above is a picture of a sad zombie who has been captured and brought to the E3 Expo this week as an exhibit for Capcom‘s booth. Those that attended the expo pointed and laughed as the helpless zombie growled and was obviously not up to being made fun of. Some even took pictures by the caged undead and surely will be posting their photos on the internet. But a group of individuals weren’t going to sit idle while zombies are captured and treated like (dare I say) animals.

C.U.R.E. (Citizens for Undead Rights & Equality) flooded the E3 Expo with fliers such as this:

On the back of the flier was information regarding how zombies were treated poorly and a website (citizensfortheundead.com) with a petition that asks you to get active. It’s quite the impressive campaign idea. Especially when it comes to promoting Capcom’s upcoming zombie slobberknocker, Dead Rising 2, on Xbox 360 and PS3. If you haven’t had a chance to play the first title, basically you are trapped in a mall infested by the undead. You have three days to survive until help arrives. What you do with those three days is totally up to you. You can smash zombies or try to uncover the truth. The sequel promises much of the same in the way of action and extreme violence.

The new additions this year include a multiplayer mode where friends online join the fray and assist with the zombie smashing. I got some time with the game and it seems to be a nice improvement on 2006′s breakout title. With a massive assortment of weapons, sweet graphics and the addition of online play, Dead Rising 2 appear on its way to being a successful sequel to the initial installation. Check out the video below of the gameplay and how the zombie protesters interrupted E3 in a shocking way:
