The first 10 minutes: Dead Rising

The first 10 minutes: Dead Rising

The US version of Dead Rising doesn't work in PAL consoles, but thankfully for me works in Japanese 360s, so as always here are the first 10 minutes of that very anticipated game. I'm sure most of you have already seen almost everything in this video, so I'll of course do at least another 10 minutes showing what's happening next. After a few hours of playing the game I'm really impressed by the graphics and the gameplay is really good. I'll have to play a bit more to see what the complaints about the save system are all about, but so far it's ok.

Looks nice, can't wait for september 15th (or was it 9th?) when the game is released in Europe. Due the more I read about it the more flaws people seams to find, like the save-thingie, seams kinda irritating... but I guess time will tell.

The game is really good but also can be extremely hard as well. The save system really sucks I don't know what the hell they were thinking when they left it in that way.
That being said the game is addictive, for a Japanese game with english dialog the story is good and presented well which was something I was worried about since I normally dislike Japanese games.

My biggest complaint is that I still would have liked more hints as to how to do things, some of the rescue missions just seem a lot more difficult than they should be and I have a feeling it's just because I'm doing things the hard way.

Ah it really is not fair we here in Europe have to wait an extra month for this goodness.

anyway, i'm excited about this game. hopefully it will hold up to the expectations and help to sell some more 360s in japan.

About the game

What's up?

    droezelke @Melmoth: No, there won't be games this year with realtime ray-tracing (ie only 1 light source). (9 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: I don't know who it was here, but my message was for him. He thought that games using this tech would be released this year. Also nVidia hinted at it, but they meant that it might help... (11 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth as for generational jump in performance. i think for nvidia it's been about 1.5-1.7x increase the last 4-5 gens. with the pascal cards (10 series) being around 1.7x performance of maxwell (900series) (40 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth showing the tech in question. So if they took a GTX 1060 (which is mid-tier now) and tailor-made a demo to show it's full potential, it would look much better than the latest games out there. (46 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth which is both due to the hardware used to run them being years ahead in raw performance (not features) and equally important, the demos being a very polished very small slice with a strong focus on (48 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Which isn't unlikely when looking at the past 20 years of tech demos and the adoption. it's important to state that using the technology isn't equal to looking as good as the tech demos. (49 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth are supposed to be a accurate representation of how full games look the next year or two. Nvidia only said the tech would be in GPU's this year, and most likely in games shipping as soon as fall 2018. (52 minutes ago)
