First off, sorry for the lack of action around here the last few days. It's not because we're lazy (We certainly are that), but we've both been spending most of our free time playing Dead Rising 2. I know Jaison has way more to say about this game than I do, but for now here are my thoughts so far.
Basically, gameplay-wise this is more what the first Dead Rising should have been. Three save slots, survivors that aren't as useless as tits on a bull, gun controls that don't blow ass, and CO-OP! Yes online co-op is the reason I got this game and it doesn't disappoint. Like sex, this game gets much more enjoyable with another person involved. The psychopath fights, which normally are fucking infuriating, are just annoying. The ability to revive each other and trade items is a godsend.
One thing that should be noted though is that co-op has one major bug. When the host saves their game, the co-op partner gets disconnected. You get the opportunity to save your stats, but all the items you were carrying get dropped on the ground. So when the host invites you back, you gotta go find them again. Ass balls!
Still, the pros definitely outweigh the cons and when Jaison gets off his lazy ass we'll have a full review. Stay tuned!
