Just keep moving. If you dont stop, they have a hard time hitting you

Oh I've tried that method. It's rough when there's about 10 of them shooting at you.

I used the Defiler (sledge hammer and fire axe) When you're within the vicinity of the merc, jump and swing. It should one hit kill them

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

You can think of this director's cut version of last year's zombie slayer as an alternate-reality exercise in "What if?" Instead of playing as Chuck Greene throughout the course of the game's adventure, you play as Frank West, the photojournalist star of the original Dead Rising. It's largely the same game, retrofitted with a few story and gameplay differences that mostly arise out of the change in protagonists. In terms of story, it turns out Frank's star burned a little too bright after the big scoop he broke in the original Dead Rising. Now, Frank's a has-been former celebrity trying to get his career back on the upswing. So what does he do? Reality television, of course.

Capcom showed us the first 10 or so minutes of Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, suggesting that this is not merely a palette swap. Frank West begins Dead Rising 2 on the zombie-killing television show Terror Is Reality, only his adventures at the start of the game go a bit differently from Chuck's. Wearing form-fitting wrestling tights that reveal just how pudgy Frank has become, he begins taking out zombies in a mock wrestling ring with chairs, suplexes, and whatever other weapons he can use. (Including sweet, sweet fire.) Even though Frank survives the bout, he gets thoroughly mocked by the host for his sad state of weight gain, hair loss, and fading celebrity--a Pyrrhic victory of sorts.

Frank instantly regrets his decision to appear on Terror Is Reality and suddenly wants to get the hell out of there. He leaves the dressing room and stumbles upon the host TK in a clandestine meeting, which serves as a tutorial for reintroducing you to the photography mechanics of the original Dead Rising. At any time, you can take photos of various objects for PP (experience points, essentially) that are all divided into categories like horror, brutality, and humor. In this case, it's getting the scoop on this shady business deal as a little retribution for being so thoroughly mocked on television.

Naturally, your photography session doesn't last long before the zombie outbreak that kicked off the original Dead Rising 2 also occurs. This is where the game begins to more closely resemble Chuck's adventure, though with a few changes here and there. A number of winks and nods litter the hallways, like a poster of Chuck with his face covered up and a disused Game Boy-like device lying on the ground that looks an awful lot like Katie's. Frank's also got a couple of new abilities for dealing with zombies, like one silly move where he grabs a zombie and poses next to it while taking its picture--the result being a terrifying shot not unlike your average MySpace photo.

There are a number of differences apart from the way the story unfolds. "This is still the world of Fortune City, but we've made sure to go in and freshen it up," said executive producer Jason Leigh. You'll find new weapons, outfits, psychopaths, and other various knickknacks spread throughout this fictional Nevada resort. And continuing the tweaks made to the save system, there will now be checkpoints that autosave whenever you enter a new area, complete a story event, or defeat a psychopath. Beyond that, there's also been some tuning to the effectiveness of various weapons and psychopath difficulty levels. Leigh didn't get into specifics on what's been altered, only saying that a lot of dials are being turned.

So that leaves us with the big question: How much is Dead Rising 2: Off the Record going to cost? Sadly, that wasn't revealed. Capcom did state that the game would be "appropriately priced," but it failed to go into anything more concrete than that. It will be a shame if Capcom winds up charging full price for a director's cut of a game that came out last year, even with some pretty inspired changes made to the core of the game. In any event, we're talking about the successor to the game that won GameSpot's Funniest Game of 2010, so we're obviously eager to see more of the hijinks that Capcom Vancouver has in store here. Stay tuned.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

So will Off the Record have both the Frank and Chuck versions? I don't think I could see buying two versions of this.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

I've always been interested in this series. Had the first one but never played it. Are the two cases (Zero and West) worth it at those prices?

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

If you have no interest in the series, probably not. If you think you'll play DR2, then C0 is definitely worth $2.50. YMMV on CW since you may not like the games...

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

I never picked up Cases Zero or West. Figured I'd wait for an eventual Deal of the Week. Glad they were added to this week's.

Will be downloading them both today.

I grabbed it but can't decide if I should start Off the Record or Batman.
