I notice you have no review scores on your website, a brave move and one I shall laud with a smattering of applause.


*bows* Thank you Gari, this is the reaction we wanted smile.gif

Which case-files are necessary to unlock all parts of the Mall btw?


I've tagged the following in spoilers just to absolutely offend no one, but everyone apart from Singho should be perfectly happy taking a look:

Well, I'm waiting for the time to expire to conclude what will be my final playthrough of the actual game itself. I've achieved all my goals and am just about to finish the perfect run of saving all survivors and completing the main storyline at the same time with the "true" ending. Let me tell you, it's no picnic, some of the time limits are well harsh, and I had to restart a few times since I simply nerfed myself getting to a side quest or boss battle in time.

As a result, I'm really fucking satisfied happy.gif

Greatly enjoyed it, but now is the time to shelve, until such times as the 360 won't die from overheating on Survival Mode. Can't wait for the PAL discussion to begin though, mostly so I can banter with Singho about some of the psychopaths and their death sequences xd.gif

I can't wait for this game!! Nice to read through this thread and read about the mechanics of the game without bumping any major spoilers, good job smile.gif

Unfortunately, I've already bumped into a big spoiler on another forum, where the topic title was:

So that makes me appreciate this thread all the more.

I can't wait for this game... when I see you playing it online Hank, it hurts me inside, it really does...

YOU BEAST! laugh.gif So is this another game youve got 1000/1000 on? Was hoping there would be a few proper real bastard achievments to get on this, just to give you some other reason to keep playing after youve completed it...not that it seems you need any more reason to play this what with all the ways you can dispatch of zombie bastards. happy.gif

Dont think ill have a 360 when the game is launched. ;o Will probably be picking this up about a month later...dont ask why. >_<;

Oh, and just a quick question about the combat now that someone HAS the game...you think the 2 moves per weopon is sufficiant now after playing through the whole thing?

Also...please tell me there is loads of hand to hand moves to be learnt, like way more stuff than we have seen with gut wrench punch, CAMEL CLUTCH, Giant Swing, Bulldog...put that in spoiler for me...ill slowly read it. xd.gif

Remember that picture of Frank, running over a crowd of zombies with what appeared to be a rollercoaster in the background...just a yes or no...does it work? XD

Nope, haven't got the Pimp achievement. Not even going to try that one, it might send me into unspeakable rage >_<

Alas, no laugh.gif I have 840/1000, and believe me, there ARE some REAL bastard achievements I haven't picked up so far. The ones that remain are listed without spoilers in the list, so I'll just sneak em in here:

Escort 8 people at the same time (hard enough, but then...), escort 8 ladies at the same time (ARGH GOD NO), answer every phone call in the game (impossible, hardest achievement on the entire system), photograph all the PP areas (easy to hard, depending on how good you were at finding GTA hidden packages), never miss with a machine gun (hard... but there's a glitch that can be exploited to make this as easy as ABC xd.gif), and 5-7 day survivor achievements for the survival mode (easy with the X Buster, just very time consuming. Like... FOURTEEN HOURS without saving)

QUOTE

Yes, unquestionably. Each weapon has its own use and properties, so using one weapon to stun a large group of zombies momentarily and another to kill single undead monsters is required. You don't really have time to think about moves, you just need to use the weapon. So it pays dividends that this isn't overcomplex.

Great stuff!

Ive just managed to set aside some cash for a premium 360 and a copy of Dead Rising and a few other bits and bobs. Do you think that this game is worth the price of the console alone? Im only asking because it seems like there are loads of people who are gonna get a 360 just because of this.

Cant wait! happy.gif

Honestly? No, not for this one game. It's good fun but the opportunity to play this at 300... not worth it.

That said, the only game I've actually literally bought a system for was the N64 for Goldeneye.

Can't wait for some PAL impressions biggrin.gif

Lots of fun a few hours in, Otis isn't half as annoying as everyone says ( from all the whining I expected him to be calling every two minutes and distracting you with really, really long messages while you were fighting ) plus the Mall seems utterly enormous and quite diverse.

One part so far that produced an enormous, evil grin:

Got it early from Virgin Megastores today! They were also kind enough to just give me the faceplate without preordering as well. happy.gif




Still to play the game yet, just sorting my room out, some snacks and drinks are on stand by, the phone is switched off and the door is locked!

...How the bloody hell do you take off the 360 face plate?! sad.gif
