of all the zombie movies i think i like dawn of the dead best and i remember when i first played this game i was like WHOA what a rip off.

I couldn't agree more. I thought it was and is a great tribute to a great film.

Dead Rising is a great game inspired by dawn of the dead which is a great zombie movie. It is just like the movie in many ways but that ok for me.

I hate it when people beg for bubbles. Start making quality posts (and bring something relevant to the topic instead of "Give me Bubbles , please!!!!!!!!!!!!!") and you will get them.

If you want bubbles, stop making fanboy comments in the Gamer Zone.

Don't tell me you didn't see the two dots at the end of my comment.
JOKE man, lol

Silellak3780d ago

I wasn't aware "two dots" was the secret internet code for "what followed before this statement was a joke."

Apparently I don't have the latest Internet Lingo Handbook.
