newegg can be weird at times, some days good games can be priced down then after a few hours or the next day price back up... or games that should be back down in price at laughable prices... so i saw this even so they just had it at 21.99 then back to 29.99 now its at 17.99 so i jumped at it for im not paying 20 or more for it... so who knows how long it'll stay at this price.. oh and free shipping which is something i really love newegg for...

Thanks for posting the link and the detail.

I would've preferred on 360 (just because I have the others on 360), but this is a nice price. I bit.

I would have bought if the 360 version was at that price. I have a PS3, but I'm an achievement ho. So, I will continue to wait.

In Off the Record, you play as the guy from Dead Rising 1. Frank??

DR2 you played as a new character Chuck.

I think otherwise, OTR is a lot of the same as DR2. It's just a retelling as a different character.

Very tempted at this price, but will try and hold off for a $15 or less price.

I spent over 25 hours on Dead Rising 2, finished with a level 48 Chuck and the S ending, and as frustrating as it could be, I enjoyed the hell out of it.

I can't bring myself to spend more than $15 on OTR though since it is almost the same game, and since I won't get to it any time soon.

i bought it the day it came out. the difference are bascially it's an alternate storyline where you play as Frank, it also has a different ending boss and chuck as a psycho. They also introduced a Sandbox mode which is amazing!

Yeah I actually enjoy this one the most. Sandbox mode is epic unless you trophy/achievement hunt...in that case you have to kill 100,000 zombies for one of them >.<
Great price for a great game!

Why does everyone want Amazon to price? Newegg is better than Amazon.

That's a good question. Unless these people have Amazon credit, I don't understand why they don't just buy it from Newegg.

I like Amazon better for a lot of reasons but the most important one is that as a Californian, Newegg charges me sales tax while Amazon doesn't.

Yeah I already killed my Amazon card. Went through a couple months without a job and couldnt pay it lol. I guess since then I've started mostly looking elsewhere from Amazon. Newegg usually has the best deal IMO.

That's a good question. Unless these people have Amazon credit, I don't understand why they don't just buy it from Newegg.

As others have said taxes and credit usually mean Amazon wins. Also remember that as far as I know Amazon is the only major retailer that will actualy change their price on the fly when they get enough notices of lower prices elsewhere. So it pays to get them to match because then it also has a ripple affect that could cause other shops to follow their lead.

Diet soda is the worst.

I was just about to ask if I should get this or Dead Rising 2 first. Figured this would be a best of both worlds. Continuation of the first game's character with all the improvements of the second game.

I haven't played any of the games yet, so does the order of playing the games matter? I mean, I plan of playing Dead Rising followed by Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, then finally Dead Rising 2.

If you've never played 2, I'd just skip it and get this one. But that's me. Do play the first one too like you said, it's great. (but it's not on PS3)
