Dead Space

From Wikipedia:

Originally Posted by Summary

Dead Space is a third-person action video game, being developed by EA Redwood Shores for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows. The player takes on the role of an engineer named Isaac Clarke, who battles a polymorphic alien species called the 'Necromorphs' on board a stricken interstellar mining ship.

The player takes the role of Isaac Clarke, an engineer who must fight his way through a stricken mining ship infested with Necromorphs, a hostile alien species. The game features an 'over the shoulder' third-person perspective, similar to games Resident Evil 4 and Gears of War. The interface does not feature a traditional head-up display. Instead, information is relayed to the player via holographic projections, which hover over Isaac's weapons and armor.

Weightless and decompressed environments also appear in Dead Space, and Isaac can navigate through them using his pressurized suit and magnetic boots. Some levels even lead out onto the surface of the ship's hull. Floating debris presents a hazard, however, and Isaac can lose his footing and simply float off into space. In keeping with Isaac's profession as an engineer rather than a soldier, weapons in the game are mostly improvised, and consist of an array of bolt cutters, stasis fields and rudimentary energy weapons.

Combat in Dead Space becomes complicated when Necromorphs do not simply "die" after receiving a certain number of gun rounds. In fact, depending on how they are wounded, Necromorphs can adopt new stances and tactics, even sprouting new limbs and giving birth in the process. To defeat the Necromorphs, Isaac must utilize "strategic dismemberment," the methodical severance of specific limbs or sections of the Necromorphs. Dead Space's executive producer, Glen Schofield, has said that "the primary theme of Dead Space is dismemberment," and early previews of the game have noted the high levels of gore.

nice! it begins.

might want to put up some shots of the two different suits for the ps3 and 360 versions of the game. i guess that might make some difference to someone who cares about that shit.

i think your screenshots are nicely illustrative of how great the game looks and encourage people to check out more information. so well done.

The one game that really stood out to me after watching E3, and I don't own a system that can play it. Despite that, I'm glad it has received good reviews.

To be honest, I didn't know much about this game until a few weeks ago, but I was instantly sold when I read about the theme. Survival-horror in outer space? Has the potential to be scary as fuck.

I just wish it wasn't coming out during a week where I'm going to be totally fucking broke. Oh well, I can wait.

I hope the nice reviews and impressions will continue to come, this game sounded bland and uninspired at first, but it looks like it has become a pretty good game after all. It's nice to see EA doing good stuff after the PS2-era.

i should as well. as megahyped as i've been about the game, i tend to avoid the extra stuff around most games, choosing to take the game as its own entity. but if people here think they're worthwhile, i'll be on it asap.

Me neither. I was going to get the 360 version but I'm thinking maybe I'll go PS3 to keep the platform consistent with the prequel movie on Blu-ray (unless we hear the PS3 version has problems.. hopefully not).

IGN says in their HEad to Head that the versions are identical. (see the IGN review thread)

Probably doesn't go live until the game is out.

Speaking of the preorder bonus, if anyone happens to get an extra one.. I'd love to have it. getting the game from TRU so I can't get one for myself

I don't think the suit is up on the marketplace yet. They just put it up on PSN in the last update so I expect it'll be on XBLM by release.

I think I'll pick this up. I was get the 360 version but if the ps3 version is the same, as it seems, I'll import it.

I saw this on another forum regarding the comparison of the two versions...

Overall
EA Redwood Shores has done one of the best jobs I've seen of making sure their game runs equally well on the 360 and PS3. The game looks great, sounds great, and plays great on both platforms. Neither version is missing a crucial feature, and EA has outdone most other major third party publishers by including Trophy support in the PS3 version. The game runs identically on both platforms, and controls equally as well on either controller. You'll be able to save yourself a few seconds when loading a saved game on the PS3 version, but this isn't something you'd notice unless you were actively timing it. Ultimately, the PS3 and 360 version of the game will deliver an identically entertaining and atmospheric experience.

Holy shit, I had no idea this was also coming out for PC. :lol

Thought I was going to have another annoying "360 or PS3" decision on my hands, but the fact that there's a PC version makes things quite easy.
