    Reminder that the nerdnuggets who somehow ended up in top producing positions for this game worked previously on kinect titles, rail shooters and sports games and have no idea on what made Dead Rising great to begin with.


    Reminder that Frank West is dead and was replaced with this selfie-taking douchebag who doesn’t really act like a reporter as much as he does like an overgrown child.

    I hate modern western game culture.

    Why did Capcom had to take this from the hands of the Japs? DR 3 completely misses the point of what made Dead Rising 1 and 2 great, gone is the sense of progression, learning the map, shortcuts, getting faster and stronger little by little, using your time effectively so after many replays you are able to save everyone you saw die over and over again, you fail a lot so one day you may succeeded. On DR3 early weapon combos are already godlike and far too insane to be funny which ends up feeling very forced, zombies are a joke, the city is more dead than the zombies, the story is boring and MC is a whiny lil b**ch that just cannot stop crying. DR4 is DR3 with a fake Frank West on drugs, everything seems to be overpowered, zombies are no menace whatsoever, it’s a “Zombie Killing with wacky weapons Sandbox” which will get boring fast.

    Black Friday shoppers are basically zombies, so that is pretty fitting.

    Look at this 53 year old Millenial.

    This video gave my eyeballs cancer. This game looks like it’ll be horrible.

    Only change I like is getting rid of time constraints on side missions.

    Frank went from being a reporter to being a BuzzFeed-tier “reporter”

    Nice try, but that boat has sailed a long time ago

    This is similar to what happened with the Silent Hill Remaster
    the people working on it have no experince in the genre, do not care about the previous fans, and want to just slap some shit on the screen and the name is the same
    this should be a side title, not a main number in the series, 1,2, and OTR are the only goods ones.
