Keiji Inafune has revealed that prototypes of Dead Rising and Lost Planet were originally rejected by management at Capcom, but that he continued to work on them against their orders.
I wonder how many great ideas never saw the light of day back then.
I can understand why Capcom fell out with this guy now. to go ahead and ignore orders by Capcom management is ignorant. he has the completely wrong idea when making Japanese games. he is lucky dead rising succeeded. too bad the same can't be said about lost planet
Dead Rising 2 should definitley have been rejected - most tedious game i have ever played
Was very excited for Deas Rising 2......bought it after Christmas, returned it for NFS later that month, it was very tedious indeed. I just couldn't get into it, lost the 'vibe' that those sort of games need, and the variety was almost needing to come from the player, the game seemed fun, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe it was just me though.....
I loved Dead Rising 2....on the second playthrough. Once you've leveled up, have high health, and more of an idea what's going on, the game can be ridiculously fun. Dare I say, it was one of my favorite games of last year. But on the first playthrough, I spent most of the time dodging zombies and avoiding psychopaths because I wasn't strong enough to take them on. It definitely took alot of fun out of the game and IMO that's poor game design. Most people don't want to replay a game for it to become fun. They'll just return it for a refund or sell it on ebay.
to me dead rising 2 was alot easier then the first one
Always great to know the inside info.
should have canned it, the game is horrible. No melee moves, One button combat is lame, it felt like a lame dynasty warriors, and we know how lame dynasty warriors is. if the combat was deeper it might be fun, but its not. also the zombies are MORONS! hundreds of zombies why? I dont know lol they dont do anything
loved them both especially lost planet, wish you best of luck in your future projects Keiji!
something about this guys games, i just love. wheres onimusha?? i'd play, like, 40 more sequels of that junk
