I hope we see some of the major hotels, I'd love to see The Venetian/Treasure Island ripoffs.

I've never played it, but the first one sounds like a lot of fun. I'm glad this is coming to PS3 too.

I'm in for this game for sure! I just hope they make it co-op (online and offline) and fix the AI of the survivors you have to rescue, they pissed me off so bad in the first.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

I need to pick up the first one again - got frustrated by the unkillable convicts in their stupid jeep running over my escort folks all the time. I can protect them from the zombies without an issue, but those idiots in the jeep bugged me to no end.

That and some of the story missions - trying to aim and hit bosses was a pain.

^ direct your survivors to a corner and lure the convicts to you. Get them to drive at you so they ram a tree. Take out the gunner while they are stuck, then the driver.

Best method though is to take care of the convicts before you take any survivors through the courtyard.

When i had a 360, this was the only game I was obsessed about getting all pf the achievements. Frank the Pimp is the only one I was missing. I can't wait for this one.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

I am hoping that this time around, the endgame isn't something completely different than what's gone before. I hated that in the original.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

I still say throw in a little Rainbow Six: Vegas with bad guys and good guys at each other with Zombies going at both. That way you have three choices on who to play. Kinda like Alien vs Predator vs Marine.

I'd imagine the fact that it suddenly becomes not about brain-eating-slow-moving zombies, but fast-moving-gun-toting soldiers. Yes, it did change things up and shift focus, but I felt it just added another layer to the game.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

Better late than never.

Spoiler:
99% of the game involves you fighting hordes of zombies using everyday items as weapons. That's the selling point, and the reason I picked it up. Suddenly at the end, it becomes a rail shooter, followed by a fist fight with a person in which you can't use any weapons. Lame.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

So, Amazon has the release date for Feb.10 (it was Jan.1 last week) but then Gamestop has it at October. Does anyone actually know when this comes out?

Until there's an official announcement, no one truly knows.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

Based on what little we've seen on the game at this point, I seriously doubt it'll be out in 2 months.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

I really need to finally pick up and play the first game before this one comes out.

Yes, yes you do. It's one of my fave 360 games. A great combination of action, humor and exploration. Hope to see more in #2

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

My personal problem with the trailer is that I see too many of the same items from the first game being used again.

I know a sporting goods store should have a good selection of baseball bats and golf cubs to smash zombies but I hope there are more new items than there are retreads.

There's a new trailer on the 360 dashboard (which I haven't watched) but it says "just announced for Fall 2010".

But now you can combine them with duct tape!
