I've been having an awful lot of problems with Xbox Live lately. My router seems to be unable to allow me to Co-Op smoothly. I'll hook my Xbox directly into my modem and it will work then... sometimes. For some reason one particular friend and I cannot connect via XBL ever. It has been this way for a long time. Every now and then it will work, but 90% of the time, no dice. We played Co-Op for a good two nights since the game released, and that's it. It worked once through my router and only once.

For a very long time, I would visit the Dead Rising websites, just to see the same content that hadn't been updated since its release. I was so worried it would be another gem left by the wayside. When I learned that DR was Capcom's next big franchise, I had to change my pants. I was overly thrilled, playing Dead Rising through for the hundredth time, preparing for the second outbreak. Although I didn't get all the achievements (which I greatly regret), I felt that I got the most out of the first …
