I'll be getting Dead Rising right away. I'll also download Pac-Man eventually. Not sure when.

Dead Rising. I might go crazy and start my search on Tuesday. Last time I tried that was with NSMB, with absolutely no luck.

I'll be honest, I really wasn't impressed with the Dead Rising demo. I think, though, that its a fault of the demo and not the game. There was really no cohesive story element in the demo, there were none of the civilians that you're suppossed to be able to save or let get eaten, and I didn't notice any of the RPG elements (though I may just not have gotten enough points to level up). Those are the elements of the game I'm interested in. I'm probably going to wait on a price drop before I pick it up.

I might rent Dead Rising first. I've had a lot of fun so far with the demo, though, so maybe I'll buy it. I've been bleeding cash horribly as of late and I really need to stop. Summer fun is expensive.

It was briefly fun to look for every possible weapon to use vs. the zombies, but only briefly.

Hopefully there is a mix of zombie types and/or situations so that you don't just always favor the same weapon. The knife was great for killing quickly and not overextending yourself into an animation that would leave you open to attack. Between that and the shotgun, I didn't need anything else. It was funny to kill them with gems, though the gems were quite weak.

Dead Rising is a strong rental, IMO. If the RP elements are good enough, the rental might translate into a purchase. The demo wasn't exactly anything spectacular. At least, that's what I thought.

Definetly gonna try to pick up Dead Rising this weekend. I love the demo, and I've played it many, many times now. I'm most interested in the mode where you survive as long as possible... I plan on making my stand in the juice bar.

EDIT: Also, I had very little interest in buying this game before the demo came out. I had some interest at one time, then it waned, but this demo sold the game to me. It also knocked Saint's Row right off my list of priorities.

so, let me get this straight: (according to amazon) you guys get dead rising August 8, 2006 and saint's row August 29, 2006. (according to eurogamer) the UK gets saint's row September 1, 2006 and dead rising September 15, 2006. i wonder why the switcharoo?

are volition UK-based? i guess that would explain...

i think i'm gonna have to get saint's row and leave dead rising 'till a bit after it's released ('till i've gotten bored of the row at least) - seeing as it'll be out so much sooner.

There are over one-thousand unique weapons in Dead Rising? And the demo had how many.....only twenty or thirty?

Sign me up! I loved finding new ways to kill mindless zombies...

PS: Anyone find the yellow head in the Toy Store? LOL!
