Is mine one of the obvious ones or the not obvious ones?

Not. I'm assuming some anime based on the artistic style.

Phoenix Wright character for the win.  The Police Chief...but I can't remember his name.

Anyone know if I should bother to try to shoot down the helicopter?

There's an achievement for it and maybe a clothing item reward. I never did it.

Well, then, I'll try, but not too hard...

No one not involved with it would entertain such an idea...

I plan on going through the main story again at some point- so that I can take down some of the psychopaths that I didn't have time for...and maybe rescue some more people... and actually, taking photos was an afterthought for me. Might try to get some more of those...

and maybe the 54k zombie kill achievement  icon_twisted

You want the achievement. It gives access to the real best weapon in the game.

Maybe over time I'll work up to that. I'm almost done with the 4th day and only have 6600 kills.  Another 48k really seems like it would take a bit of time biggrin

I ended up grinding it. Just put on a custom soundtrack, grabbed some vehicles, headed down to the garage and ran over 54k zombies. Took about 2-3 hours. I then just went to the roof and waited for the helicopter (you have to get an ending before the achievement awards become available). It was worth it though, that weapon made my second run through the game so much fun. Actually ended up accomplishing every side and main story mission smile.

stop it stop it stop it! Must ignore...godhugh...

2 problems:

1. how HARD would it have to have been thrown to break the tv?

2. My guess is the Wii mote would break before the screen did

I bought it on release day. I played for three hours that night. I died, hit "save progress and continue" or whatever the badly described option is.. lost three hours of game progress, and proceeded to never play it again.

The save system is awful.

It's still sitting on my shelf. I keep thinking maybe I'll pick it back up.. but it hasn't happened yet. There's too many other games that save my progress in a manner that doesn't make me want to throw a brick at my 360.

I can't begin to tell you how many games have done that to many and thus I will never touch them again most likely.  After many hours of playing to lose it and do it all over again is a sure fire killer of fun for me.  Actually had that happen to me in Call of Duty 3 and thus I returned the rental and will not be picking up again.  Will wait for the PC version for many reasons, but yes, a bad or poor save system sucks badly.

I agree on all counts, but I personally don't consider it a bad save system...it works perfectly with this game.

Yeah, but you don't have to do that to "finish" the game, right?  So you can play GoW without losing your "bet".

Um, correct.  All achievements wasn't one of my criteria slywink

Battles of Prince of Persia only has one slot though...It hasn't really affected me too much though...

I completed the main 3 day story in Dead Rising and am on to the additional content.  I also got to play some co-op Smash TV with Purge.

Finally, I also got some time in with Battles of Prince of Persia on the DS. 

Not as much as I wanted, but a fulfilling gaming weekend after a nearly 3 week travel induced drought

Well, I still have my preorder and supposedtly will have one in a few weeks...maybe as christmas draws nearer and if the supply is still short, I can make some money. If not, oh well back to the store it will go.

Looks like they're still going for between 800 and 1000- so that still not too shabby.

I've been thinking about getting DR, but I'm still miffed over the whole 'let's screw over non-hdtv owners by using too small text' idea Capcom went with.

The text is even pretty small on my 30'' HD.

I just got ending A
Spoiler for Hiden:
on into overtime!  icon_cool
and have to say, that right now, this is my GOTY.

I'm not a fan of zombies in the least, but this game is just a blast.  It's clever, witty, tension filled, has great pacing and won't let go of me.

And, watch out now, I'm going to chime in and say...the save system is an effective way to augment tension in this game.  At first I didnt like it, but as the game progressed, it grew on me.  I usually loathe such a mechanism, but it has worked perfectly, IMO.

I was far more cautious, far more tense (as one should be when battling the undead horde) and far more drawn in because I knew I had one chance...just one one chance!



Right now, my gaming moment of the year is: 

Spoiler for Hiden:
I was in the underground garage collecting the bombs.  Most of my go to weapons (blades) were dinged up and ready to wear out.  The final vehicle I had at my disposal had taken too many oxygen tank hits and crashed in a heap, unable to get me to the exit.  I was on foot, in the dark, with a couple knives, no food and thousands of zombies between me and the only way out.  I was absolute steel beam tense and I somehow made it out.  It was exhausting and exhilirating.

But if there had been a way to save just before getting to that point, what has become a defining game moment for me would have been just another reload and retry.

Dead Rising.  Brilliant.  Though I'm not all the way done, it is definitely an A+ title for me. Any news of a sequel?
