In sand casting, a riser prevents shrinkage in metal cast parts during the solidification process.
In parachuting, a riser is one of several straps that attach the parachutist's harness to the suspension lines or shroud lines. Parachutes can be steered by pulling on one or more of the risers, to alter the shape of the inflated canopy, although the primary control mechanism is through a pair of steering lines a.k.a. brake lines attached to the left and right trailing edge of the canopy and routed past the left and right rear risers.
In plumbing or sewage disposal, a riser is a pipe leading water upwards from the ground or sea-bed level. In domestic plumbing use, it is a shorter name for a rising main.
In computer hardware, a riser raises or changes the angle of PCI, ISA or other interface slots.
In commercial real estate, the term riser is often used to described the vertical telecommunications infrastructure in commercial buildings. Copper telecommunications cable extends vertically from the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) to Intermediate Distribution Frame (IDF) generally located on each floor of the building. The space utilized for this cable and the cables themselves are referred to as the riser system.

Dead Rising's gory, ridiculous, and entertaining action, coupled with its real-time structure and campy stylistic touches, make it one of the most unique games currently available for the Xbox 360.
Where Resident Evil was a series all about horror, tension, and frequent jump scares, Dead Rising goes in the other direction, creating a pure action experience with zombies that are much easier to kill but travel in higher numbers--much higher numbers, actually, with groupings numbering in the hundreds.
However, Dead Rising's main appeal is less in the sheer volume of content; rather, it's in the ridiculous variety of it all.
