Jeff and Dan make for the funniest QLs. The Kid Rock talk and fun with filters had me laughing hard.

@glottery: I want to tell you so many things. But even the character names would spoil some of the fun. Just... know it's absolutely bonkers in a really fun way.

Emailed Patrick about the follow up to You're Next a bit ago. The rottentomatoes description makes it sound absolutely insane and must-see.

Any comment about these bits?

The writing in Dead Rising 3 could have done with some rethinking as well, as several characters in the game represent tired, clumsy stereotypes. I fought a "psycho" named Jerii in a sequence that was basically one giant transphobic joke. I faced off against a gay stereotype so flagrant that he was literally wielding a giant, flaming penis gun. Another boss was an east Asian caricature that would've felt uncomfortable in an '80s action movie. And the less said about Hilde (aka the "sergeant") the better.

Yes, these characters are so far over the top they're in orbit, and meant to be satirical. But the writing is so poor and juvenile — for example, the gay psycho taunts Nick with such gems as — "ride my pole," and constantly alludes to his blue balls. It's tired, embarrassing and just plain dumb.

Did you find them prevalent? Did they bother you?

Edit: Hmmm, I assume this part of the review is in reference to them?

A couple of the psychos fall into slightly questionable stereotypical territory, but most of what's going on here is dumb and random in the amusing way that Dead Rising has always had about it.

He alludes to his "blue balls" because he's wielding a flame/ice thrower that has one ball that is blue and one that is red. And I might be stupid but I didn't actually think he was gay. I just thought he was a pervert representing the sin of lust. He's kidnapped a male and female and has them on a set for filming. He's wearing a gimp mask and other weird clothing and his weapon is obviously phallic.

Vinny summoning people in is ruining a bit of the magic. :( Waiting around to spawn people, and then them steamrolling stuff. It's all up to Vinny though.

The last two minutes are the absolute best.

Is it just my speakers, or is there loud distortion when they get loud?

I really enjoy how Brad gives this game such shit for its pretty dumb jokes, but didn't mind Guacamelee's memes. That makes sense.

I dunno man... I'd take meme's all day over this stuff. It just all falls so damn flat.

Oh almighty Drew master of the divine control room, could you please hear the prayers of us humble duders and please lower Brad's mic when he screams like a mad man out of nowhere ? We would appreciate that so much, us headphone users.

Also, this looks like more "New" stuff. I don't think Nintendo understands what the word actually means.

Yeah... I'm wearing headphones and it's the worst.

I would pay $60 to see them play through the rest of the game. Oh god.
