I'll see you on the other side...

    There were a lot of things that I enjoyed about the first game, but also a lot of things about it that drove me nuts (like those guys in the Jeep re-spawning, or failing the psycho photographer scoop because the guy got killed by zombies before I could even talk to him).

    As far as the new consoles, I think I’ll wait a few months or maybe even a year before I get one. Consoles are like cameras; the people who rush out and pre-order the newest ones are the ones who have to gripe about all the bugs. If you wait a while, the companies usually fix their mistakes on later production runs, and you’ll have time to read the reviews first.

    The second one was fun for about two minutes. Perhaps it would have been better had it had a true sandbox mode and an actual physics engine that didn’t feel like you were playing as a car lot inflatable.

      I didn’t like the second either. Off The Record, on the other hand, was great. Frank West and his camera returned, and it did have a sort-of-sandbox mode where you could just fuck around. Chuck Greene can suck it, West is the man.

    I hate this. The game looks soooo good but I refuse to buy a Xbox180. Maybe, just maybe, if the game is fantastic and the stupid Kinect works this time I might buy one. But something tells me Capcom will find a way to bork it.

    • Uncle Creepy

      I played it already and it’s pretty fuckin’ bitchin…

      BTW RE: Xbox 180

      Looks like Sony can learn a couple of things considering they waited until 3 Days from launch to announce they’re doing the exact same things they’ve been making fun of Xbox for throughout the last several months. Well played, Sony. Same shit different pile.

      Fuckin’ hilarious.

        Yeah, this holiday is going to be pretty interesting. Sony dropping bombs and Xbox shoving Kinect in our face. Neither of them are getting my money right away. I’ll most likely get a PS3 for The Last of Us and the special edition of Deadly Premonition (Hoo-ray!). Besides Dead Rising the launch lineup on both sides suck.
