Dead Space (Multiplatform)
EA actually bringing the awesome.

Quote:

Set in the far future, Earth's appetite for natural resources has become a major motivator for deep space exploration. Immense, privately-owned and operated mining ships called "planetcrackers" orbit planets and use sophisticated equipment to carve out entire city-sized chunks of rock, reducing them to component elements and raw ore. When communications go dead on-board the USG Ishimura, a famous planetcracker -- systems engineer Isaac Clarke -- is sent in to fix the problem. Once on-board the vessel, Isaac discovers that the crew has unearthed an ancient and malevolent alien presence far beneath the planet's surface and brought it on-board. Weaponless, alone and terrified, this lone engineer is burdened with much more than simple survival -- he must seal the alien horror back into the dark rock.

The game is available on all platforms, pre-order at EB (not sure about other stores) and you get a DVD with the game that is an animated prequel to the games story. Here's the trailer;

http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=zmcwex...eature=related

Also, seperate again you can find the Animated comic on youtube, it's a 6 part feature that follows the discovery of the artefact and the subsequent events that follow before things go haywire on the USG Ishimura. This is episode 1, 2-6 and Ep 0 (not actually a part of the time line) can be found on youtube.

http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=7rZ6v5...eature=related


Oh and before we get sidetracked with the bagillions of awesome propaghanda, the game is looking pretty fucking sweet as well, currently scoring in the 8.5-10 range.

You can find a shitload more videos and developer diaries on youtube and gametrailers.

Looking forward to this, though I've never really liked these 'mutant monters' style horror games. None of them really seem to nail a great, chilling monster design (ala HR Giger's Alien). It all ends up feeling very B-grade zombie flick.

Hope this one breaks the mould. I also hope it doesn't have a sub-par framerate. I'm over that on these consoles. :/

More from Tycho:

Quote:

- As you reach the culmination of Dead Space, it begins to take on a shape much more akin to quote survival horror than previous. The store that seed so friendly and inviting in a long-gone idyllic Golden Age becomes black altar of greed and usury, a grasping, mercenary savior with a coin slot. The game only improves as you progress, and Dead Space - as good as it is - is only the most rudimentary kind of story they could tell with what they have here. But the ground is cracked, the seeds are in the furrow, and I can't wait to come back and see what grows.

- As is (by now) well established, the primary conceit of the combat in Dead Space is that it has many weapons that don't fire direct damage so much as they fire shapes or planes of damage, which turns every gruesome howling corpse into a kind of shooting gallery. You're trying to make your shaped damage intersect with the weakest parts, either to conserve damage or for some other corollary effect. Shaped damage is sort of an obsession of mine. As a young man, I spent some time with Renegade Legion: Interceptor and Centurion, in both the digital and tabletop contexts. These were wargames where you dealt damage as shapes, against grids that represented a target's armor. If you want to see how something like that would work, check out page 5 of the Centurion manual.

- I started writing this post with bullet points because, in my mind, I was going to talk about something other than Dead Space. But here we are, three points in, and Space is still incredibly Deadly.

I chose to play the game on Normal, because for a very long time Normal meant Normal - as in, if you are playing a videogame, you are a gamer, and Normal for you constitutes bitch-ass hard to the greater population. Given my full playthrough, Normal is sometimes Nasty, but never Brutal. Hard would most likely be about the level I would expect, which would have shorn up some of my expectations vis a vis "an atmosphere of omnipresent danger." I did unlock a new mode by completing the game, that's true, but I'm choosing to take "Impossible Mode" at its word.

.....they did make an anime.

Unless you mean they should have made 2 prequel animes, in which I concur. Having watched the anime itself, I have to say the story in the comics is more fleshed out and interesting.

This game is brilliant. I plan on finishing it before getting right into Fable 2. The suspense in Dead Space is perfect, it didn't scare the shit out of me in the same way Doom 3 did, but it's certainly one of the most atmospheric horror titles to have been released in a long while.

The music and sounds effects i think are the best i've heard in a game. Maybe on par with Bioshock.

Does anything scary happen during the opening movie? Like a monster jumping out as she's speaking to the camera and eat her face or anything like that?

That's as far as I got...
