this looks like it should have been a big DLC pack not a new game

I don't mind this but Capcom should really look at Dead Rising and think about it what they are doing. Personally, I would have been more happy with them actually crafting a narrative around why Frank West is actually there. I mean, Frank West was what made part 1. His character was excellent. He should have been more integral to the Dead Rising 2 story. But then again, he might be in this version.

Yeah, i would have loved having another story with frank west as the hero in dead rising 2 instead of what we got.

    GriftGFX @Tinks: 2D Mario > 3D Mario. And 3D World feels like 2D Mario. That makes it feel more like a "real Mario game" to me. (35 minutes ago)
