Note on Dead RisingThere's a technical problem with Dead Rising. If you have a standard definition set, the text is apparently so small that it's very difficult to read. Here's a description from the Opposable Thumbs blog over at Ars Technica:
The game itself is easy to see: the colors are all bright and the textures look good, but the issue is the teeny-tiny text at the bottom of the screen that pops up whenever you talk to anyone. What's even worse is that most of this text doesn't have voiceover work, so if you can't read it, you're not going to know what to do.
Capcom has acknowledged the problem , but no word on a patch or other fix.
Which sucks for SDTV owners, because the game itself is freaking fantastic. Just fantastic.
Thanks to everyone who sent me information about this issue.
