Dead Space is awesome!

Post by benheck » Thu Oct 23, 2008 11:59 am

If anyone was thinking about giving it a try, you should!

Don't be put off by the fact it's an internal EA project, it's very well done and polished. Think of it as Alien meets Bioshock, with controls/interface like MGS4. But definitely a bullet-counting affair. Resident Evil in space is also appropriate. I have a hard time putting it down, that's for sure!

The only real negatives I can think of thus far is there's probably a few too many save spots and the art direction is a bit inconsistent at times.

Worth checking out!

Is this a game we can "buy", or do we have to BUY it.

You could always try to "buy" it and if that fails, go buy it. :lol:

I loved the commercial all except for one part, it mad me shout at the TV
The Idea with using old Childrens songs we all know(Twinkle Twinkle little star) Was an idea that I also had to use in a scary low budget movie(It would greatly enhance it when sung right)
Other then that I cant wait to buy it

WOW. That is the biggest avatar I've ever seen. Better shrink it or change it.

I kinda feel bad for poor Dead Space, it's got awful timing. Coming out a week before Fallout 3, LittleBigPlanet, and Fable II? As cool as it looks, I'd much rather throw my spare dough at one of those (*cough*FALLOUT*cough*) than some internal EA IP.

Yeah, Josh is right on this one. If I had to choose between Dead Space and Fallout I'd go for Fallout at the moment; more bang for the buck. That and Fable 2 is my number 1 priority for the moment (b-day present).

It seems valid enough to me. I also tried uploading to image shack and I got the same error so ??????

It needs to be a link directly to the file, i.e. ending with a valid image extension (jpeg, gif, png, etc). That looks like you uploaded it to an Invision forum as an attachment. You can't link to that as your avatar.

I have tons of friends that already bought deadspace and they are loving it to death and these are true gamers talking here.

Also, in other news its getting a hype around it as being the scariest game of all time, though I don't know if it's true its just rumors that I hear and read.
