72 hours to kill… Thousands of zombies… What would Chuck do?”

DR2 was the long-awaited canonical sequel to Capcom’s surprise hit, succeeded by the non-canon Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It had several quality of life improvements over the original game, but does it deserve to be considered as much of a classic?

The premise is very similar to OtR, where the main character has to clear his name after being framed for an explosion in Fortune City that frees the zombies gathered for the Terror is Reality pay-per-view event. Our main character this time is Chuck Greene, a widowed single father, mechanic, and former motocross star trying to earn enough money at TiR to support his young daughter, Katie…

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Part Two: Totally Radical

I tried to beat the “Insurance Scammer” adventure, but it was too hard. I did take over a new garrison, though.

The problem with “Insurance Scammer” is that you have to wipe out the whole squad… with the pistol. There’s ammo nearby, but it ran out. ;-;

The magazine for the pistol can be upgraded if you find all of the VHS tapes. That VHS format is what we used to watch stuff on. Each in-game tape has a brief description of every very ’80s plot. Continue reading Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Part Two: Totally Radical
