Please feel free to add anything of your own to the list. I will also be picking up the strategy. guide if I can find one and adding useful tid bits here as well

Take time for a little PP.
If you notice there are sometimes little PP symbols on various things like store signs, clocks and that giant Serve Bot in the toy store. If you take a close enough picture of this symbol and the item attached to it you will get a pretty large Prestige Point bonus (600+ points). I have found the PP symbol on the following things so far: the Serve Bot, a clock in the sunglass store, the female cardboard stand-up in front of the CD store, on one of the small round green Columbian Roastmasters signs, and one on the entrance to the movie theater at the end of the movie poster hallway.

Who said chips and orange juice don't mix?
There is a blender inside of the Columbian Roastmaster. If you mix 2 different foods you can create a concoction. Each mix has a different color and effect. So far I have only been able to make three.

Chips + Pie = Zombait (This will attract zombies to you even more than usual. I have tried throwing it at other zombies to see if I could use them as walking magnets but I do not think it worked.)

Pie + OJ = Untouchable (Here is the best thing you can make. Untouchable keeps zombies from biting you. They will still follow you and try to scratch or stab you, however.)

OJ + Chips = Nectar (I have no clue whatsoever what this does. I drank it but I did not see a noticeable effect.)

Bread + Chips = Spitfire (This will allow your normal spit to kill zombies with 1 good hit. The spit will also have a better range while this buff is active.)

Cooking Oil + Cooking Oil = Spitfire (This combo will also create the deadly spit formula.)

Comb your beard with this frying pan bitch!
If you see a frying pan then I suggest you grab it. Don't use it right away. Find yourself a nice stove and heat that bitch up. Once the pan is red hot it will stay that way until broken. Now, if you go up to a zombie and hold down the X button you will burn those suckers' faces off! This little move gives you 100 PP and kills them instantly.

There are some things I am not sure if I should list because they seem to be pretty obvious but I will make a quick run down.

Hands and hangers can be used to plug up zombie mouths. Unless you hit them again they should not be able to bite you.

When the battery on your camera dies you can recharge it at the camera shop.

You can cover up zombie heads with masks and buckets.

If you see a zombie bitch in undies or a nightie you get extra points for taking pictures of the tits and vaginal area. These count as "Erotica" shots and I wonder what Frank does with those when he gets home.

Some weapons don't do shit. If it's soft or plastic you won't be killing crap.

Cooking oil is best used in a large group. Zombies that slip on this slick substance once thrown on the ground count as "Outtake" photos.

Not all guitars are created equal. Flying V guitars, standard electrics and acoustics all have different swings.

Shoot the Sheriff. The fat cops may carry night sticks but a few also have pistols drawn. Once you knock the crap out of them they will drop their firearms.

Female zombies love to bite your cock.

All new updates I find will be posted below this text!

SUPER SPIT!
Chips + Bread = Spitfire (This will allow your normal spit to kill zombies with 1 good hit. The spit will also have a better range while this buff is active.)

Jesus Christ!

It sucks that it's over a month before this is released in Australia. Hopefully they'll put a PAL demo on Live Marketplace soon enough.

Great topic! Good shit!

Some goodies I have found / noticed

If you're out of weapons and go into "aim mode" you will spit on the zombies. Please know this doesn't do a god damned thing to them but fuck it made me laugh!

Location of the Kitana blade:

Jump over the railing by the juice display in the Colombian Roastmasters restaurant. You'll land on a red canopy. The sword is there. Happy slicing.

Haven't found the SMG yet. Anyone?

Let's keep this thread going. What else have you found or come across?

Good work!

Has anyone found anything that can be put in the microwave at Jill's Pizza? I tried the bread, pie and a zombie hand but none of them worked.

Ah. but spitting IS important.

According to an article I read over on Joystiq, there's a concoction you can make in the blender that makes your spit -deadly-.

That same article said the microwave is useless in the demo. In the game, you have to cook meat you find to avoid getting sick when you eat it, but there's no meat in the demo so there's no cooking.

I'd just like to say that I really, really, really want a 360 so I can play this sucker.

You are correct Mr. Dark. I found the mixture today to give you SPITFIRE! If you blend CHIPS and Bread you will get deadly spit. Make sure you have no weapons equiped, go into aim mode and spit. This new weapon has pretty good range and can usually kill a zombie with one hit!

That, alone, is a reason to drop the 4 bills to get a system to play this game.

Now, I just need the 4 bills.

Anyone have a fast car and a couple of ski masks handy?

From what I have been reading there is also a mixture called randomizer and another one for speed.

The speed formula needs the cooking oil and something else. I will try this evening.

- Take a nearby Frying Pan, place in on the oven, and take it off after a couple of second. The Frying Pan will become scolding hot.
- If you throw a bottle of cooking oil, it will splash on the ground. When a zombie walks into the puddle, he will trip.
