Son of a b#tch......Newegg, yet again, gets me for another preorder. Damn you Newegg!!!!
I know, right! They've got me down for 8!
I want to stop, because I know Buy2-Get1-Free sales are coming, but with no tax and release-week delivery, I can't help myself!

I wonder if they'll eventually release a 2 pack, with the original DR2 + this game. I may try to hold out for that.
Yeah I could see them doing that.

That's what I did with the second game. The first I did both at the same time, though.
I feel like I'm beating a dead horse - or at least a horse nobody reads - but you can play DR2 and ignore the timer. Level up, get cool combo weapons, then restart the story already buffed and go through the timed missions with less difficulty. It's damn near impossible to do both at once.

That said, from the looks of things this is going to be a rehash of DR2's ground with what looks like just a couple of extras. Unless they're offering us a better rebalancing of the bosses I really don't see myself signing up for this. Hell, the only thing that would sell it to me ARE new bosses.

A downside to this, is NewEgg doesn't provide pre-order bonuses, and guess what? They have the gall to include retailer-exclusive pre-order bonuses with this game. I miss the free costume DLC with DR1 :(
Well aren't the pandas going extinct?
You wouldn't be if you stopped being lazy and aggressively copulated.
Never have truer words been spoken.

As much as I loved Dr2 I'm still wondering why this version of it is being made. Shouldn't blue castle games be working on a whole new game instead ?
They most likely already are working on a new game, with a small side team devoted to reusing old assets to make a new game.

Remember you can always verbal price match up to 10 dollars no questions asked on video game products.
This is what I have done for titles that either had credit at other places or went on sale.
Though the biggest issue is if theyll stock the game. Since for example they never stocked NMH which I could have grabbed at 30 (rather than going through amazon)
Though I'd say them getting Dead Rising is a high chance.
Just recommending that for those not wanting to wait on shipping or If newegg charges them tax and this is a available option.

He falls silent when asked about DR3. So thats pretty much a given that they are making it in my eyes. Also, he talks about the issues with this new release and the updates to it from DR2.
I also liked Chuck Green, but i never played the original, so i didnt have another game to compare it against.
