Isaac Clarke is back but unfortunately for him so are the Necromorphs and that can mean only one thing, Ishimura dismembering needs to be done! Dead Space 2 can easily be described as the Aliens to Dead Space’s Alien or an Uncharted 2 to Uncharted; it’s as if James Cameron has hijacked EA’s survival horror franchise chucked in a load of blockbuster set pieces but then forgot to add the 3D. So Dead Space 2 aims to improve upon its predecessor by adding more but more doesn’t always mean better, does it emerge unscathed or come up short like a Necromorph with no legs?
I can only apologise for posting N-Dubz on here but it’s a landmark moment that a music video has been made via LittleBigPlanet, to be honest I’m thankful for anything that stops me having to actually see what N-Dubz look like. It’s worth sticking around to the end to see a good use of LBP’s slap move.
I didn’t think there could be anything cuter than Sackboy but then I met the Sackbots… Oh my Media Molecule, how you have outdone yourselves. It doesn’t stop there either when you see the animal robots that you ride in particular Hamstertron 2000. The Bee 2.0 also showcases in some memorable levels that take you in new unexpected directions and that is one of the ways LBP 2 justifies its existence. With LBP 1, Media Molecule effectively created a game that needed no sequel, it could live on indefinitely thanks to users creating new levels in varied and imaginative ways, thankfully MM saw otherwise.
I spent last night in a crypt under a church in central london for a Dead Space 2 event where a guy in a mask and a fake gun stole my phone and the undead served me beer… a typical night out in London then.
At the event I was shown and was able to play an exclusive clip of Dead Space 2. I was also audience to a section of soundtrack by the appropriately named composer Jason Graves, he revealed the main chords for the piece they played consisted of D E A D. Christopher Shy was present to talk us through the creation of the
comic graphic novel Dead Space Salvage and Brian Evenson read an extract from his Dead Space Martyr the novel. Christopher Judge of Stargate SG1 fame along with Stargate Continum and erm… A Dog’s Breakfast was also present to talk about Dead Space Aftermath a new animated film in the same vein as Dead Space Downfall.
