What is the most effective way, considering time, to gain Prestige Points (PP) in Dead Rising 2?
I played Dead Rising, and I loved it, but until I got near the top tier of levels, the game was just too hard for my style of play to allow me to make it very far. A general rule of thumb (backed up by PP per game hour estimates) of the general order of events is suggested.
Is it more effective to keep as close to the storyline as possible? Or is it more effective to ditch the story and save as many survivors, and find as many in-game bonuses as possible?
Any particular combo weapons that are easy to get at the start of the game that seem very time effective? The Drill Bucket is undoubtedly fast than the Spiked Bat, and I have yet to find any other high PP gaining, fast, weapon.
I'm looking at this from the standpoint of beginning the game... repeatedly ( :( ), so essentially, a timeline of at least the first 24 hours of the game's start from after you give Katey her very first dose of Zombrex, because that's when you meaningfully have a choice of what you could do in the game.
Note that I tagged this xbox 360, but I'm fairly sure no other system will vary. If they do, I would appreciate such being noted for completeness reasons.
