    Doesn't appear to be a thread for this one so I figured I'd share.

    This was recently released for PC with a bunch of DLC's already built in, kind of like when MK9 was released for PC.

    For those like me who aren't very familiar with this game or the series, the base story mode for this game revolves around a character named Nick. However, there's a DLC pack called Untold Stories which has you play through a kind of mini story mode with four different characters. Episode 2 of Untold Stories is with a female character named Angel, a kind of punk/scene looking girl with a drinking habit, apparently.

    When you play as Nick, there are a bunch of costume options available but it doesn't appear the characters for Untold Stories have these options. I haven't completed it so I can't say for certain, any confirmation of that would be appreciated.

    There are several different QTE's you can run into with the zombies. Certain special zombies have a different set of QTE's as well. Other than that, basic hit animations and pretty decent voice work. Camera control is decent, but fixed during QTE's and also the death cam is a bit iffy.

    Think it's worth checking out for ryona fans and zombie fans. The game runs a bit sluggish on my machine (i7 with GeForce 560) even with the settings lowered though so if you don't have a decent rig you might be in for a bit of a aggravating game experience.

    you aren't the only one who can't run the game decently , everyone in the world have problems running this game smoothly including the ones who have Nvidia Titan :D , it seems like a lazy port from the developers who are Capcom Vancouver , Just wait for a bunch of patches until it is totally playable

    As soon as it gets patched probably I will dig for ryona in it

    odd, since capcom normally has good PC ports. then again they're all but bankrupt at this point so maybe that's it

    The word "good" isn't enough for those ports , They were perfect , excellent and ideally optimized PC Ports (DMC4 , RE5-6 , SFIV ..etc)

    The Reason for this awful PC port for Dead Rising 3 is that it was done by Capcom Vancouver not Capcom Japan , The reason that previous Capcom PC ports were perfect and ideal even for low-end PCs is that they were done on the MT Framework Engine that is used by Capcom Japan and that is one of the best engines that makes perfectly optimized PC Ports While Capcom Vancouver uses a different engine that isn't PC Friendly at all and Dead Rising 2 at launch had also a lot of issues

    Finished the DLC story mission so just thought I'd post some updates. You can't customize her appearance, but close to the end of her story mode (which isn't very long), she takes off her little hoodie vest thing and it turns out she has a mohawk under there.

    In the main story mode with Nick, there's a female boss character that you run into towards the middle of the game that's a kind of perverted MILF cop? She's constantly trying to get people to touch her tits. It's kind of unnerving. Anyway. Those are my findings.

    I'll see if I can try to do a recording. The game runs so sluggish I doubt screen recording will come out that great.

    Some of the QTEs are alright. Overall, nothing particularly that stands out. I think RE5-6 has it beat for ryona moments.

    I was having issues getting this game to record properly and just haven't revisited it yet. If I have some time I'll try to troubleshoot it.

    I found this, there's another on their channel. Apparently if you mess around with it, model swaps can be a thing? Also, the voice is still Nick's, if that means anything to you.
