As far as I've heard (read) it's DEFINITELY going to be a full retail game with 1000 :gsicon: . Just use your google-magic or wait a few more weeks. ;)

I like the 20g rule :D Sure it sucks to kill 72k Zombies for 20GS, but still...

The 20G rule is a good for a bad. Good because you can get some easy 20G with some effort. (like in DR2 where you visit every store, put mask on enemies heads, etc, etc) then there's the tediously long achievements like 72k kills for a meager 20G.

I really wish they would get rid of the TIR achievements but I know they won't

JuSt BLaZe
07-26-2011, 06:52 PM
Yeah let's hope there will be only offline-achievements. As for the 20 :gsicon: - rule I think it's the signature feature of the whole Dead Rising franchise and I like it cause every achievement you earn is equal even though it sounds harsh to get the same amount of gamerscore-points for killing 500 zombies and killing 72,000 zombies. All in all it simply takes a little longer than usual to score the total 1000 :gsicon: and I'm cool with that. :)

I don't think that there will be TIR events as Frank isn't Chuck ;)
Instead we have to survive 7 days again :D

Also i want an achievement for killing 1000 zombies with the Clown car

If I read right, only 5 achievements for 100 points require playing online. Of course, I'm assuming no single console co-op.

This looked like a really awesome list of achievements. They seem to carry over that humor that's been in the trailers, that I hope stays in the game, and none of them seem to annoying, like having to go around and just collect a shitload of stuff from the mall. They all seem pretty unique and fun, like having Denyce attack the final boss, so I guess we'll have to escort her through the entire game, or not eating meat, dairy or alchohol during the entire game.

But am I the only one that thinks that the list and the tiles are a bit revealing? They revealed cool stuff like the challenges and that we can have more than one survivor in a car at once and the challenges, but there's also the one called "Out with the old" that talks about killing a motorcycle-riding psychopath, and it has a picture of a shaggy looking Chuck there. Seems interesting.

What ones seem boring or grindy to you? The only one I can think of is the 100K one, and it seems like there's a sandbox mode so it should be okay.

If sandbox mode is, as one would assume, a mission-free and time restraint-free mode, then it should make getting those ridiculous kill counts fairly easy. I am, however, irritated with Capcom's take on their franchise support as of late. They seem to release all the right sequels that receive warm welcomes from fans and critics, only to re-release a slightly different version of the game a year later with a few extras and then they do that one more time (ie: Street Fighter 4, Super Street Fighter 4, Super Street Fighter Four Arcade Edition) (they also seem to be going the same direction with Marvel Vs. Capcom 3).

But back on topic, the achievement list looks pretty easy and should be fun. Although, as said before, the list features both heaven and hell, as that has become a staple of the series, as well as the 20 G consistency across all achievement whether they are frustratingly long, difficult, or only takes three minutes of gameplay. Either way I am satisfied with the list, but I don't know if I will be jumping on this immediately. Maybe a little farther down the road when it is a bit cheaper.

Haven't they always done that, though? Street Fighter II, Super Street Fighter II, Super Street Fighter II Turbo... And besides, I'm okay with this one because it does seem to have an appropriate amount of new content, considering it's price point.

Real disappointed that there will be no TIR in this one (but there might be no achievement related MP). I remember seing screenshots of Frank in a wrestling suit in the TIR cage...

Hopefully it won't be too hard to find a coop partner here. None of my friends play DR...

I canīt belive that no one has comment on this but, doesnīt Chuck looks older in the picture of the cheevo where he appears?

This is getting weird, the game apparently is going to recycle almost everything from the previous one, but Frank and Chuck seems to be around this zombie world for a few time, Frank is fattest and boldest and Chuck seems to be in that picture hairy and bearded.

I really want to think this isnīt going to be exactly the same game and this kind of give me a certain hope.

I think that was supposed to be the story mode, Frank's equivalent to the Slicycles at the beginning of DR2. Also, if I had to guess there won't be any online TIR in this game because they wouldn't want to take away from the already small online community of DR2.

The problem is that they're boring as fuck to grind out. That won't change just because they take the time limit away.

You kidding me? You seem to be the only person in Dead Rising 2 community that likes TIR....the biggest problem with TIR events is unplayable and laggy as hell. Thank you, Capcom for not adding any TIR multiplayer or TIR related achievements for this new game, DR2:OTF.

The achievements look not bad overall and looking forward to it.

I know, lag could be pretty bad in vehicule events, and it can be hard to find a game at times. But I feel like most who were complaining here were just unhappy you couldn't boost. And lets be honest, it's not that hard to win 9 different events. Especially since there was an extra incentive in sp to play TIR (and the outfit you unlock is super cool)...

I thought it was super fun little minigames (way better than ac:b's mp). Just disappointed there were so gew of them. I'll get OtR regardless, but I'd like some new events - I'm surprised I'm the only one ;-)

Alpha vs. Omega
Have Denyce attack and damage Sgt Boykin.
Denyce is the lab tech that was basically the first survivor you rescue in DR2. Sgt. Boykin is one of the last Psychos you meet. This is going to be so much fun...

Purewal Memorial Cup
Don't consume any meat, dairy or alcohol until the military arrives.
Except for the alcohol bit, this is easy. Some of the boss fights (the Twins come to mind) were fairly tough even with the plentiful vodka lying about.

08-24-2011, 07:36 AM
alpha vs omega all you have to do is the main quest. with a beefed up character that really shouldnt be an issue at all. supposedly the save system is getting made easier AGAIN for all the whiners = easy

as for the other one you might be able to just chill out in the security room for a whole playthrough

Just stock on on OJ before the boss fights and this achievement should be a breeze.

Really looking forward to the Photo achievements.

I know it's often a mixed reaction amoungst the playerbase, but personally, I was always in the camp that loved Photography in the first game. I really did, I was just disappointed there weren't more Photo-based achievements. OTR looks like correcting that. \o/

I'm looking forward to the return of the photography element and SO thankful that they have added sandbox mode this time. Killing 72K zombies in the last game was a bit of a hassle. (Got the last of the kills with only seconds to spare.) Now I can actually enjoy working on 100K. :p

Kill 100,000 zombies. [Host Only]



hopefully are doable in sp

Why would you do the kills in co-op anyway? You'd be sharing the kills which would make it take longer.

10-08-2011, 12:14 AM
Oh, I didn't notice that. Well if thats the case, I've already asked one of my friends if he'll do co-op with me. He won't have any issues leaving his xbox on so I can get the achievement.

Edit: It doesn't say host only on the achievement list. Where'd you get the host only thing from?

Sorry, I meant, he got it from the game itself cause back in DR2 you have to be the host for the killing achievements.

As for DR2:OTR I can give you no certain answer. I'd definitely looking forwad to it if both could get the achievement. Since the 100,000 zombie kills one would be so much more fun to do in COOP and both would be granted with the achievement.

thats what im wondering, if those are obtainable only in coop coz in DR2 didnt say nothing about host stuff

ItachiUchiha
10-10-2011, 12:43 PM
While it says [Host Only] you guys are forgetting that theres one for only killing 69 zombies. So if you get that one in single player then you can rest asure that you will get the others aswell. I mean its not like your gonna spend hours getting 69 kills. It will take 2 or so minutes to see if it works on single player. Its not like you have to go for the 100,000 kill one to see if it works or not. As for the [Host Only] it just means that if your playing in co-op it will only unlock for the host. Its that simple to figure out guys.

I love how they leave it out, it confuses everyone. If they put it in, it confuses everyone. Good god, people. They're just clarifying that when playing in a co-op game, only the host would get those two achievements. o.O

I can understand that most of you are not happy with the 20 :gsicon: rule but honestly I think it's quite cool that Capcom stayed true to themself. This way not many will go for the harder achievements, since they think it's just not worth it and only a few will have them, like me. Looking definitely forward to it. Fo shizzle!

I already asked this a few on my friendslist and they say they've done it in SP and both got the achievement.

I think it's faster (not easier) in SP cause you just follow the story and wait till one psycho appears, "in order" to get this done it should go like this:


- Ted Smith & Snowflake
- Chuck Greene
- Brandon Whittaker (A Familiar Face)
- Antoine Thomas (Tastes Like Chicken)
- Randy Tugman (Here Comes The Groom)
- Carl Schliff (Mail Order Zombrex)

Once the four trailerpark snipers appears, you'll have four at ones, easy cake!

When doing SP, the 5 bosses on co-op achievement always pop on the 6th one in the list. I've done it twice, once with a friend helping me, another time I was helping a friend. On both occasions, the achievement unlocked on the 6th one.

I've no idea why, but if it happens to anyone, just play on after the 5th boss.

Now that HAS TO BE A GLITCH somehow. The count isn't right. Cause I did the same first on myself (unlocked right after Randy Tugman) and second when I helped someone in COOP. He also got it right after we killed the fatass in "HERE COMES THE GROOM".

My friend and I are playing all the challenge together and I just get finishing all in Bronze achievement but not him, and when he checked on his list some are not "finished" but on the score we have always posting score the two of us.
Someone already heard this?
Did the duo who have always played together sometimes not winning the two or this is just a bug for us?
Do we have to start everything again with him?

is this a hard game to 100%?
Not at all. Check out the roadmap (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=336893). The hardest part is getting a gold medal on a couple of the timed challenges and even that isn't terribly hard. The rest of the game is a breeze. 4 or 5 out of 10, max.
