    A cracked version is now out there, works very well indeed but you can't save at the moment. Something to do with Games For Windows zero day piracy policy not letting you to play games before they're launched.

    Its released properly in two days so at least we don't have to wait long unless there is a work around.

    Was concerned about this version as I've read reviews for the PS3 one that said that it had some bugs here and there relating to slowdown but so far I've not seen anything on the PC version.

    Proper crack allowing saves is up today.
    No windows live though of course, not till the actual release I assume. (which sucks if the game has achievements ;-; gotta redo stuff to get the ones I miss from playing early)

    Incredibly fun game, and a lot harder then Dead Rising 1 so far.
    So many god damn useless stores >_>
    CLOTHES?
    DIAMONDS?
    SKATEBOOOOAARDS!?
    I need me some freakin' weapons! Survivors are kind of retarded still though, unless you send them to a waypoint...then they're pretty genius and just run past zombies.
    But zombies horde the shit out of you if you have a survivor.

    Takes forever to get some free time too. I always felt so tied to deadlines until I was done the 2-# set of cases.

    Where rockets don't fall.
    I didn't realize this was coming for the PC, did the first 1 got a PC release ?
    *starts downloading*

    Does the game require the mouse wheel ?
    since mine just broke and I can only click it

    I doubt it does. Though I really can't imagine playing the game without a gamepad, lol.

    First wasn't for PC, it wasn't for PS3 either. The game stopped being exclusive. Which is awesome because I couldn't afford to buy it for 360 like I had wanted.

    I'm finding the game to be really dull, it does fix a lot that was wrong with the first game but at the same time I'm just finding myself feeling a sense of "been there done that".

    Thought exactly the same while playing it on 360, but I also had the feeling that the long loading times were really killing the game for me. I hope they'll be a LOT shorter on PC.

    The game works fine although a little slow when the screen is filled with zombies.

    I never played the first since I don't have a 360/Wii, the game is fun and loading time are less than 5 secs. (although its a little annoying).

    The PC version is "Oh, so much better" compared to the 360 version. The loading times are finally bearable.

    Too bad the blur effect seems to pop-up every now and then in cinematics for no reason whatsoever. I don't remember seeing that in the 360 version.

    Also, I'm playing on 1680x1050, and almost all the menus look like crap. Have they developed the game with 1024x768 in mind or what? [​IMG]

    Strange, maybe they don't support 16:10 resolutions well, then [​IMG]

    EDIT: I've tried 16:9 resolutions too, and the menus backgrounds still look like crap. It cannot be my videocard, as it's a GTX260 [​IMG]
    I mean, when you're editing options, there're bloodstains on the menu background. Those are jagged and look like crap, on my PC.
