HOUSE OF THE DEAD: OVERKILL BREAKS [AN EFFIN'] RECORD FOR THE GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS GAMERS EDITION
London, UK - 9 March, 2009 - The global authority on record-breaking, Guinness World Records, today announced that recently released The House of the Dead: OVERKILL (SEGA®, 2009) has broken into the Guinness World Records Gamers Edition for most swearing in a video game with a whopping 189 uses of the f-word.
Setting a record in this brand new category, the title recognizes The House of the Dead: OVERKILL as the most profane video game in history. During three hours of relatively limited dialogue, the campaign features 189 uses of the f-word, which equates to just over one per minute and three percent of all words spoken in the game.
Video Games Records Manager for Guinness World Records, Gaz Deaves, said: This record category pre-existed for movies, music and television, but House of the Dead: Overkill is the first video game to be awarded the title in the Gamers Edition. Its a mark of the times.
The new record will be shortlisted for inclusion in next years Guinness World Records Gamers Edition. Meanwhile, the 2009 Gamers Edition hit stores last month and has already received critical acclaim from both the gaming world and the mainstream press. Enjoying a top ten position on the UK book chart, Gaming Guide Kotaku said about the book: With entries for professional gaming, top selling games in history, the history of hardware and Guitar Hero, the Guinness World Records 2009 Gamers Edition looks to be a must have for fans of gaming.
The House of the Dead: OVERKILL uncovers the ugly, terrifying, red hot secrets behind the House of the Dead; the daddy of all over-the-top shooters. While staying true to the classic gameplay this highly successful SEGA series takes on a new retro look with distinctive graphics, sound and attitude that add to its horror cool status. Also, because of the Wii RemoteTM, players will fight off zombies when they get too close; pistol-whipping jaws off and smashing in skulls with their shotgun butt.
Awesome game. Played it last week at home, with my brother first and going single after that. This game made me wanted to but a Perfect Shot too bad I couldn't find it in my country aside from the Chinese knockoffs.

I wonder if it's getting a warm reception in the Americas.
Yeah I have to say that the cutscenes are funnier the second time because you are not quite as embarrassed about how over the top they are. The ones involvingbirdchili said:still firing this up quite a bit for co-op shenanigans, and it really nails that campy vibe where the bad lines actually *improve* on repeat plays.
...and the soundtrack can't get enough praise - it's perfect.

Good Job Sega. Gaming has grown up...
And the swearing it, like, totally appropriate.

apujanata said:No official word, but it is doing much better compared to Dead Rising : Chop till you drop. How much better is not clear.
SwitchBladeKneegrow said:Alright, I picked up two of the "perfect shot" guns last night so me and the wife could play this proper, but I can't get the fucking things to calibrate properly to save my life. No matter what I do, the cursor is always off the the left of where I'm aiming.
pootle said:Same thing happened to me. I ended up aiming at the bottom right of the targets but it still took a few tries to get it close to where it should be. I wish I could play without the cursor, but I have enough problems with it on. I don't know if it's just me but there seems to be a "speed limit" on the movement so there's a lag if you move quickly.
And the constant stuttering is really starting to piss me off.
It's a game I wish I could love but it's just driving me mental.
