Thekmillion, a very helpful IGN poster, has done all who downloaded that massive Dead Rising demo a service. He has put together a very well-done walkthrough for those looking to maximize the pleasure out of their 15 minutes of zombie slaying.

From the post, you'll learn how to find the katana, submachine gun, and put together certain blender drinks to give you advantages. If you put down the demo and haven't explored half this stuff, it's time to go back in and kick some major undead butt!

Check after the break for the full FAQ.



Intro:
Some people simply download this demo, play it for the 15 minutes and say "That sucked", then delete it from their hard drive. So I made this little guide to shine some light on all the things you can do in this demo, and also to help anyone who is looking for something. Enjoy.

XIV. Random Interesting Things

- If you fire a bullet at the hard hat of a zombie, the bullet will bounce off.
- In the full game, you have to place meat in the microwave so that you won't get sick from having raw meat. But since there is no meat in the demo, there's no use for the microwave in the demo.
- Take a nearby Frying Pan, place in on the oven, and take it off after a couple of second. The Frying Pan will become scolding hot.
- If you throw a bottle of cooking oil, it will splash on the ground. When a zombie walks into the puddle, he will trip.
- The hunk of meat attracks zombies.
- Cardboard boxes and garbage cans hold items. Throw them to break them open.
- You can shoot out the windows near the park entrance, and kill the zombies on the other side.
- My personal best for kills is 672.

XV. Conclusion:

This is the first guide/faq I've ever made, and I have to say that it was actually fun. I hope this can also decrease the amount of repetitive topics on the board. In fact, I'm currently working on a FAQ.

This did take almost the entire day, so I hope you guys enjoy it, and mabye even learn something new from it.
