Anyone Up For Some CO-OP?

Posted by Cincaid (2953 posts) -

Even though Dead Rising 2 was one of my top 10 of 2010, I never got around to pick up Off the Record until yesterday. Awesome game, but since it's sort of old by now I imagine finding a co-op partner for the achievements will not be easy. So before I go hunting around the web for a partner I thought I'd check in with my favorite website first! This is for the 360 version, and what we need to do is:

  • Photograph each other (easy-peasy).
  • Get Gold on all co-op challenges.
  • Kill 5 psychos together.

This is something we can probably cover in a couple of hours, though I really have no idea how difficult it is to Gold the challenges. I live in Sweden, so a European or an insomniac non-European is probably best. I also work some days during normal working hours, but if anyone's interested in this I'm sure we can setup a play-date.

Oh, and as an added bonus, if you still need the co-op achievements in the original Dead Rising 2 I don't mind plowing through that as well. :)

@Marz: Shame you're on PC! :)

But yeah, if you liked DR2 you'll love Off the Record. More of the good stuff, and especially a Sand Box mode!

Need the co-op sandbox medals, so I would have been happy to take you up on you offer... But similarly to Marz, I can't, since I've got it on a PS3. :(

I just downloaded the game and wouldn't mind knocking out the co-op medals sometime on PS3. My PSN is Azteris, as well.

@BlackLagoon: @Azteris: Ack! Ah well, hope the two of you get it done! :)

Game was only £15 on games on demand, so now I OWN THAT SHIT. When I get around to playing it, hit me up and I can help out.

@Azteris:Sent you a friend request (I'm Vitkir on PSN), I apologize for it being blank (I hate that myself) because apparently the Vita doesn't let you write anything to accompany it.

But, if you've just started playing the game you probably want to level up and collect the Ninja and Sports Fan costumes first, and then go through the challenges in single player (the co-op ones are more or less the same). Some of them are quite tricky to get gold in, and require some practice / preparation.

I would like to play some dead rising but it is not possible right now. If you still have not found anyone to help you with the coop by late august and still want to do it let me know. Some of those coop gold medals can be difficult and require some preparation.
