@Deathpooky: I'll have to take that into consideration. I've been focusing on shield and melee with dual casting destruction spells. Sometimes forgoing the shield and using an axe and a destruction spell. I think i need to dump more points into HP as well...

Thanks for the tips. Knowing that even higher level players with higher level skills still have trouble, makes me feel better that I'm not messing up my character or doing something wrong.

I've gotten to the point in the main storyline after you've: gone to the thalmor party and got the documents pertaining to what they know about dragons returning.

At this point I decided it would be a good time to start doing sidequests. I decided to track down some of the Word Walls scattered about the landscape. I came across two word walls. One in a dungeon called Ragnvald and the other out randomly in the world. Here's where the major spoilers start.

After I had gotten close to the word wall (the one outside) and the one in Ragnvald these floating Draugr creatures with purple robes appeared and they are absolute tanks that can practically one shot me with their spells. I'm level 13 with level 37 on One-Handed Weapons with level 30 Destruction Magic so I figured maybe I just wasn't using something he was weak against. I was able to use a shout to stagger the beast and try hacking it with my axe which didn't do much of anything. Then my magic didn't even scratch him. I decided to look up what these creatures were. They're called Dragon Priests. I had tried fighting Otar The Mad in Ragnvald and Krosis. I can take a dragon down (not two at once though) but these guys mess me up hardcore. A couple of shots from his fireball or ice shards and I'm done.

So i'm curious if any of you guys have run into these things? Have you been able to defeat them? Should I go through the main quest and then come back and fight these guys? I can provide details on my character build if needed. Thanks in advance.

Not working for me either.  Re-adding my accounts.  I really hope this gets fixed soon.

Thanks guys.  I appreciate it.  :)

At what point in the story is the entire city of Rome open for missions and things?  I prefer to tackle all the side missions once the game is done giving me "features".  I just started Chapter 5 but I'm unsure if all of Rome is explorable or not.   
 
When did you guys start doing the side missions? 
 
Thanks.

 Is split screen only for Pinball FX 2 tables?"
 At least you didn't pay money assuming that you were getting the feature, but yeah, it only works with the new tables.  Other features that only work with the new tables include saving mid-game when you quit and continue later, entering your initials after playing (for local scoreboards), and all the operators mode options. "
I see.  That gives me a better reason to buy the newer tables.  We both love playing pinball but being able to play together at the same time would be superb.

I've only downloaded the free Pinball FX2 and I've imported my tables from Pinball FX (plus the street fighter table).  I heard FX2 has local split screen but I can't find it.  My wife and I got pissed off messing with settings and stuff after about 20 minutes and failing to access split screen.  We'd select our table and go to multiplayer but there wasn't a split screen option and I couldn't think of any other places it would be.
 
Is split screen only for Pinball FX 2 tables?  Where/how do you access it?

I do realize this is a 2 year old thread but I'm curious if there are free themes somewhere on the internet I can put on my PSP without using custom firmware?  All the theme sites I've found so far talk about custom firmware so I'm unsure if it's possible.

" Personally I don't understand these critiques at all.  I admit that I'm really experienced with the first game and know my way around  better than most, but the only area in Dead Rising where you aren't five minutes away from a save is the tunnels underneath the mall. If they're adding even more of these locations plus multiple slots I don't know how you can single out this franchise for having an "inconvenient" system. How do you play Rock Band when you can't save in the middle of a song? "
The difference between a game like Dead Rising and Rock Band is that Rock Band doesn't have any real "progress" that means more than unlocking new songs.  Even still, if you have to quit in the middle of a song, it's five minutes.  It doesn't take much time at all to play through a song on Rock Band.  Playing through a section on Dead Rising and making real progress can take an hour or more.  When you only have a couple of hours a day, maybe, to even think about playing a game, it isn't fun to replay whole two hour sessions because I can't seem to find my way to a save point.  Not to mention, until you level up a lot, just running through the hordes quickly to try and get to a save point is not easy either.  It's also not reasonable really to run to a save point every time you do something because it eats away at valuable game time and you can end up missing missions just running to save points (I did).
 
I simply don't find it fun.
