As we grow up, get jobs, and have tons of sex, we tend to forget the little things that used to make us happy. Things like playgrounds, the happy tunes of a nearby ice cream truck, and sandboxes. Thankfully, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record promises a chance for us to embrace our youthful selves in its newly unveiled sandbox mode. Alas, this mode doesn’t actually come iwth a sandbox, but that shouldn’t excidedly jumping up and down like a child who’s just been told they can stay up a little past their bedtime at this glorious news.
One of my biggest complaints about the Dead Rising series is the time limit. This fucker haunts you throughout the entire game, and if you make a single mistake, like say, underestimating the time it takes to get from Point A to Point B, then you’re punished severely. That sucks. It isn’t fun, and while I’m sure plenty of you like that, time limits make me angry (and you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry). Off the Record has just become a little more interesting to me with the unveiling of a time limit-free mode, because it means I can roam around, slaying zombies free from the shackles of father time. So how about you? Is this something you’re interested in? Is it? IS IT?!
