WIN! Tickets To Dead Rising 2's Launch Event

THQ has given us 15 lovely pairs of tickets to their launch of Dead Rising 2, and we feel like giving them away. Here's what you have to do: post below in the comments section the most important rule to follow during a zombie apocalypse. Ever seen Zombieland? Just like that!

Entries will be judged on accuracy, creativity, and humour.

The Dead Rising 2 launch party will kick off at 6.30pm SHARP on Wednesday 22nd September somewhere in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. It's also an event with alcohol, so that means only Australians over the age of 18 can enter.

To get you in the mood for some good old-fashioned zombie-slaughtering, we’re kicking the evening off with a 3D screening of Resident Evil: Afterlife, which is showing only at the movies starting October 14th! And...er...at this event. We’ll then move seamlessly into an extended hands-on session with Dead Rising 2 accompanied, in true THQ style, with flagons of the finest foaming ale.

If you’re looking for an excuse to break out the fake blood, there will be killer spot prizes on the night for the best dressed zombies. Only those who dress up as a zombie will receive prizes.

Here's a synopsis of the movie, for your pleasure:

In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, ALICE (Milla Jovovich), continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead - and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap. © 2010 Screen Gems, Inc.

    Curse you THQ. Make everyone come down to Melbourne for a change. ;)

    So wish this was in Melbourne!

    Only over 18? Le nawwwwwwwwww...

    Ah well, sounds like a lot of fun, and I hope you and the winners have a great time!

    Always have a strong melee weapon, not a baseball bat, not a shovel. A crowbar would be good. Its light enough to continue swinging, and strong enough to last.

    Geeks all over the world have been fantasizing over zombie attacks for years; A plethora of advice is available in the form of films, wikis, video games, literature and blogs. Know your shit.

    Damn, it's in Syndey. That sucks for me.

    However, everyone needs to check out this:

    Get out of the city. Rural towns mean less zombies and more easily-obtained food and resources. If the countryside nearby is rugged, all the better; as we all know, zombies can't climb.

    "Stay perfectly still, Zombies vision is based on movement!!"
    Wait, was that for prostitutes or zombies?..
    Nah, yeah, definately zombies.

    If you are Johnny "Everyman", surround yourself with a smart talking partner and a sexy lady. If movies have taught me anything, these are the people that get eaten by zombies first, giving you vital seconds to escape. Note: If you the smart talking partner or the lady, make sure to are gritty and tough, but also look surprisingly good while wet and dirty. This should ensure your survival... as long as you stay away from Johnny "Everyman".... else you better start practicing your slurred "brainsssss" zombie acceptance speech.

      errr... dumb brain... maybe I need more.... brainsssssss

    if you smell rotting corpses, you better join forces

    Make sure you have two chainsaws and paddle then the zombie killing begins

    Rule #1: Don't get infected.

    Rule #1: Fire doesn't work against zombies like it does in Left 4 Dead. You thought regular zombies were bad? How about having some flaming zombies hot on your trail?

    Don't bite Zombies.

    Rule 43 aka Tron Bonne's law. Always carry servbot helmets. They're the latest and greatest in zombie defense and they make the rotting heads of the zombie hordes much easier in the eyes (until they chow down on your cranium as an appetizer that is)

    "Blend in, be like one of them, dress and act like Michael Jackson (except for the sleeping with children part). You'll fit right in!"

    The Zombie Survival guide doesn't work for the Infected (fast zombies).

    Best comp ever...

    If i dont win this, I will be happy to be someones +1 if you need it... lol.

    I will have a crack at this later tonight... Can't wait!

    Duct Tape sticks to anything !

    Having a role or 2 of duct tape strapped around your arms and torso before entering a dangerous location will help you be more aware of your surroundings.
    Caught in a tight place with no way of protecting yourself from brain hungry Zombies ??
    Then you need some Insta-stick Duct tape!! Yes just like Jackie Chan whose able to use anything arround him as a weapon, you'll be able to get a firm grip of a make-shift weapon that's just out of your grasp with duct tape wrapped around ur arms.

    ...Just don't get stuck to a zombie though....

    ALWAYS wear a rubber

    Look out for number one, and number two for that matter... choose your location carefully!

    What ever you do, do not, ever, EVER, forget to try and:

    ..."kill all sons-a-bitches"

    Well it all depends on the weakness but a general rule is blunt weapons, shotguns and salt. Oh and as your companions are probably going to become undead finish them off early :P

    oh and fire

    Never, Ever, Under Any circumstances EVER ask a zed for directions.

    p.s. aim for the head
