    Is there a good, comprehensive weapon combo list out there anywhere?

    I say don't bother. For me, the enjoyment of combo weapons comes from discovering the combination yourself, or with a buddy. Me and Kuribo co-op'ed last night and began brainstorming certain combos. Much hilarity ensued when we managed to achieve success.

    Me: "No way, that's too obvi-HOLY SHIT"

    Now in regards to "Snowflake":
    Okay, I'll bite: how do you tame her?

    I feel kind of crappy killing off a tiger. That, and the fact that it mauled me and Kuribo something fierce.

    And again, how does saving progress from a co-op game work? Can you resume your own save with the levels and exp you gained in a co-op game, or do you always have to restart from the beginning if you do that?

    If you want to use the XP gained from MP, it looks like you always have to restart.

    Kind of antithetical to the drop-in/drop-out co-op option, but whatev.

    That's pretty dumb.

    Maybe if they had its own co-op save file that just keeps on collecting your progress it could work.

    No you don't. It says it'll overwrite your save file, but all it does is save your new exp onto your old file.

    3 stakes which are around her when you fight tim, also she needs to take 3 bites so you could use the same stake 3 times.

    anyone know which gifts you can give to katy? i know of 3
    1: marbles 2: freedom bear without the freedom and 3:
    snowflake (yes, lets give a 7 year old a pet tiger that's just been eating human flesh for the past few hours, makes perfect sense as a gift.)

    Don't expect to beat psychos till you get much higher level and know where to find all the weapon staches.
    Learn where all the hidden Zombrex is located. Can save you a metric ton in cash.
    If you are going to beat the story line don't get caught up rescuing people or hunting down psychos. Clear the cases. There will be dead periods where you can dick around for a few "hours"

    If you plan to go for all the cheevos load up excel or print out a list of all the tasks you need to do so you cna check them off as you go. Other than the Zombie genocides most of the cheevos carry over between playthroughs.

    Also carry a Painkiller (Booze + Booze in a blender) at all times. You never know (till your second or third playthrough) when you'll bump into a psycho thats replaced his penis with a 7 foot chainsaw.

    Is there something special you have to do with the steaks? When me and gilder were fighting her, throwing one on the ground was one of the first things we tried, but she just wasn't having it. In the end we had to put her down.

    MP stuff I think I've found out:

    You don't get drops and laggy saves if you use a mem card.

    When you play MP, it drops you in with no weapons. You accrue money and exp and can then save it onto your single player save. When you restart single player, you have the weapons you had in SP + your new EXP and $$$. I believe.

    You get a scratch card when you create the weapon yourself.

    Combo cards are either found or automatically granted at level up.

    What.

    I have to try this.

    Double What.

    So when I save in a co-op match as player two, and if I overwrite a story save, it'll just transfer my new experience onto that story save and I can continue where I left off in single-player but with my new levels and so forth?

    Indeed, this is something I will have to try.

    Oh, and someone on the last page was asking for a list of toys you can give to Katey. I have an incomplete list of items in the OP's Tips & Tricks section. I also put how to tame Snowflake in there because that comes up a lot.

    I did that fight in co-op for the longest time. It took us FOREVER, probably because you're not really suppose to actually kill what's in the second part of that battle.

It involves a mother and her little girl driving down the highway with barely any gas left in the tank. I just found out about it tonight, despite owning the game for 2 years.

    I've killed him twice and both times it was because I got him stuck on something. I don't know how the hell you are supposed to beat him otherwise. I guess lure him so he crashes into the terrain? One time I got him to drive into the mainenance room which was awesome (he couldn't back out :D)

    The other time he semi-crashed into that raised platform where the big blue sphere thing is (which I was hoping I could get in and smash into him with - boooo at that not working!), and for some reason he couldn't quite get out of that either. It was like he was trying to drive straight, but driving straight meant he was driving into the curve of the platform, so he was moving *very* slowly and it gave me enough time to smack him with a bat :P

    I will say the maintenance room thing was totally by accident and I tried to get him to do it again that second time and he wouldn't :( So I don't know how feesable that is as a strategy.

    Regarding Leon:
    I imagine the fight would go much, much easier with a couple of sniper rifles or even a few pistols. I got kinda blindsided by the fight and only had a pistol with me, but knocked off about a fourth or fifth off of his life. The rest of the fight was spent trying to catch him with a porta-mower every time he got jammed or trying to graze him from behind with the knife gloves as he drove by. Eventually, I ended up taking him out by finding some extra food in the area and just letting him ram me so I could hit him and then getting lucky with a grenade he drove over just as it exploded.

    But with some guns, you could hit him coming and going. He drives pretty straight in either direction, so hitting him with manual aim isn't that hard. A few pistols or a couple sniper rifles could probably help bring him down immensely faster than just trying to get him stuck and using melee attacks.
    Also, I'm pretty sure psychos in general have brief period of invincibility after getting hit. So I probably could've done more damage with the pistol, but I was blasting away before I realized some of the shots weren't doing any damage. I might be wrong, though.

    All I did for Leon, and it was pretty easy:
    Find the area with the two large rocks, and the path between them. Right outside of that is a gate. Basically when he comes at you just jump over the gate and he'll run into the wall. Then you jump over and whoop his ass a few times (electric rake helped a lot) then jump back over the gate and wait for him to come around.

    Did anyone else not know there's an intro to the first Dead Rising if you just sit at the title screen long enough? It involves a mother and her little girl driving down the highway with barely any gas left in the tank. I just found out about it tonight, despite owning the game for 2 years.

    WTF really? I've left it on the title screen (or whatever the "72 Hour/Overtime/Infinity Mode screen" is called) before and never seen it...

    There's a menu-patience video in DR2 as well!
