I'm actually jealous :(
I'd like that game on plus pls :L


Theres a reason for that. Every gen MS has an exclusivity deal with Capcom to make the launch title of Dead Rising exclusive for the launch consoles.


That ain't truth.

I actually preferred Case 0... I think because it was more bit sized. I keep trying to like DR1/2 but the timed things and respawning zombies keep doing my head in. Though it sounds like they have fixed these issues in 3.


Case Zero lasts two hours. And the loading times were AWFUL.

Don't recall the loading times to be honest with you, it was ages ago that I purchased/played it.

All i know is that I enjoyed the shorter experience, and the fact that the world was much easier to navigate. Don't get me wrong i love open world games, but I dont think the normal releases of Dead Rising have hit the right note for me yet in terms of the classic Zombie game i want to play. I just felt that the DLC games just felt like better experiences.

But I like what I've heard about Sandbox mode in DR3, I think I would find that much more enjoyable.



Making an indie game : Dead of Day!

My Gold expires today. Six years but I think I'm going to let it go. I barely game anymore and if I do decide to play online, I've got several 2 week cards or 48 hour cards to redeem. Plus, I already have Dead Rising 2. It's a great game, btw.


You know I was kinda silently wondering to myself about those 48 hour codes for live.... You think if you had an account with a gold trial they could also download the "Games with Gold" game for that part of the month? Just that I have a ton of those cards too in various games and was thinking if there was an awesome game on "GwG" I could tell my bro to bring over his 360, chuck a live trial on it then get a free game for him(he doesn't have net at all).

Oh right, completely forgot about that! I downloaded Crackdown a few days ago, so I figured I had to wait for a few weeks for the next game.. But hey, it's a nice surprise for me :) On to downloadland.


Yeah you get 1 game every 15/16 days or so I'll try and make sure to add a topic on here each time a new one pops up just incase people forget to check out their freebies. The only tiny bad thing about the "Games with Gold" is that if you don't get them during their window, you have missed out on a free licence to the games.

 

Have to say tho this is one of the best games yet for the gamer watching their Wallet. Not only is it a great game but also getting the Prequel dlc for free so you get even more free game and then it's the after dlc which costs some points if you really liked the game itself. Normally you would expect this to be the other way around to try to catch people out for 400pts to get the prequel dlc which they might not end up playing but here you get a dlc right at the end when you're sure you would want more DR2. Have to tip my internet hat to them on this one.

The first game I've enjoyed and haven't played with games with gold. I hope September has some great games.

Halo 3 is still on the schedule the rest is a mystery I hope they extend this beyond X1's launch.

I'm sure they will, otherwise they will see Gold subscribtions fall.

Well I guess they are keeping the games that are included with Games with Gold different in Japan.
The free game download at the moment is Resident Evil: Code Veronica HD.

I got this as well.

That's actually another great choice. What was the game for the 1st half of the month there?


I played it for an hour today and its a terrible game. Its difficult and the controls are awful.

Gold subscribtions are trending +15% every next year, so no ;)

 

Most people probably even don't know about Games with Gold promotion.
