About this thread:

There seems to be a few cases where multiple guides are created on this site, and then becomes somewhat of a battle to try to make the best guide and so forth. This is encouraged, but what shouldn't happen is discouraged writers. There are a lot of people who could technically create a really great guide, but once they see 3 or 4 guides up, they don't bother. This thread is going to be the basis for all achievement guides that are created and kind of a one-stop-shop. In the end, one guide normally ends up being the site's main guide published in the game guide section. Writing a guide is hard work and takes some good amount of hours, and I don't like to see those hours get wasted. Therefore, this thread will list achievement guides that have been created as well as some other "good threads" that should be included. So here is the current list of guides/threads you can visit. This will also reduce someone's guide from being lost in the forums until a guide is actually picked. Good luck to all members, and of course it is all appreciated by the community!

Great post, but whats with the you may remove it bit.

Games that have post like this that collate all various guides together should become mandatory they make finding everything a breeze.

Yeah I think it'd be good for some games too. It'd be a sticky clutter itself to have all of the guides stickied and people looking through the various threads would see less per page because a sticky appears on every page, not just the first one. I put that message because I'm not the only Mod, and another one might think it's best to take it down and stick a few things individually.

survivor/psychopath walkthrough

could you please have a look at my guide. i know its a bit pretensious to be voting for myself. but i like the guide i think its the most efficient way to run through the game. i am a bit of an old dude and have been playing video games now for 35 years, but i am not very technicality competent with computers.

Shouldn't "Hidden Item Map: By Achievement Hunter" go under maps and not guides?

BTW thanks for maintaining this sticky, it's awesome. Or as our ol' zombie busting pal Frank would say, "FANTASTIC!"

This grouping of info really makes it a lot easier to find exactly what your looking for.
Hoernchen guide for the all food and drinks walkthrough worked like a charm. Very good work and thank you.

What guide? All of those links still work I believe. Let me know if something is wrong.

Wouldn't this thread be the Encyclopedia for Dead Rising 2? There's plenty of other games that have them, and they work great. This one isn't any different. Having all of this information in one place is a lot easier than browsing the forum looking for a walkthrough/guide for a specific achievement.
Now, I know that once an achievement guide/roadmap is stickied, it is no longer needed in this thread, but having everything else is great. Perhaps the title can be changed to Dead Rising 2 Encyclopedia? Since that's what it is?

True, but a lot of people I think skip over encyclopedia ones because they figure it's just like a FAQ or something. A lot of them are set up as frequently asked questions, info about glitches, etc. If people want the name changed I will though, I'm up for it if people agree!
