i finally got a 360 to play dead rising and it was totally worth it. i haven't enjoyed a console game this much since resident evil code veronica on the dreamcast.

here are some tips: always grab the katana and submachine gun on your way through the paradise plaza, mix orange juice and pie for untouchable drinks, mix milk and milk for a drink that makes you run really fast, get the criminology book in the store with the japanese tourists so the katana will last three times as long, and keep the people you're rescuing alive by giving them orange juice and weapons.  i beat the game but only got ending c which is weird because i did in fact talk to isabella at 10.  oh well, i'll try beating it again because it's so fun.
