Dragon Space 2 Armour in Dead Age 2

I can't wait to get Darkspore add-ons from Populous.

When it was announced that there would be Dragon Age armour in Mass Effect 2, it may have gone crashing through the fourth wall like a confused rhinoceros, but at least the two games came from the same developer. It’s bemusing to try to fathom how the two universes might cross over, but we got over it. But for Dragon Age 2 you’ll be able to unlock unique armour if you also have, er, Dead Space 2. Buh-huh?

There’s a trailer explaining all this below.

Eww! Dead Space Multiplayer Trailer Is Gross

Oh dear, I couldn't tell the difference between the Dead Space 2 shot and the RF Armageddon shot. GAMES!

Where does a Necromorph keeps its eyes? According to the latest Dead Space 2 multiplayer trailer, about four feet behind its head. See, what I’m doing here is mocking the title, “Through the eyes of a necromorph” in a game viewed from a third-person perspective. Everyone involved now feels incredibly silly, and will probably quit their jobs, lose their families, and become destitute. That’s the power I wield. Games industry: think more carefully before you title your videos.

Dead Space 2 Features Screaming, Ghosts

If you click below, you can watch a six minute walkthrough of Dead Space 2‘s train station level, narrated by executive producer Steve Papoutsis. The environments are certainly looking a lot busier than the original, but Isaac is now also now hallucinating like a man on the wrong side of the 1960s. There’s also a breath-taking tunnel flight sequence, which might be silly and simple and linear, but it looks oh-so awesome.

Isaac Mute ‘Un: New Dead Space 2 Trailer

'Maybe that was the last one!' exclaimed Isaac, foolishly.

One of my favourite things about the first Dead Space was that Isaac was just this very quiet, practical guy with terrible posture who shouted in disgust whenever bad things happened to him and who wasn’t squeamish about stomping the shit out of Necromorphs. A hero after my own heart. With Dead Space 2 he seems to be getting some all-star treatment, becoming this awesome character who embodies the brand, but I guess that’s OK because the new zero-G sections look loving awesome. There’s only a glimpse of them in this new single-player trailer, but have a look and see what I mean.

The Frighteners: Dead Space 2

They’re calling this the lullaby trailer, which means it’s soundtracked by a spooky rendition of a children’s song. Nothing spookier than that, eh F.E.AR. franchise? Better than being soundtracked by inappropriately shouty rock music, anyway. We’ve seen a fair bit of Dead Space 2 already, and I think it’s fair to say that it looks a good deal more ambitious than the original. Actually, with the infested city and so forth, I am getting a bit of a Bioshock vibe from the environments, but maybe that’s just me. Also, I’m afraid I am one of those freaks who was able to put up with the interface wonkiness on PC and still rather enjoy the game, so I am certainly looking forward to this hitting on the 25th of January.

Dead Space 2: Necromorph Gameplay Reveal

Footage from Dead Space 2‘s new multiplayer beta has come crawling out of the overly large air-ducts of Castle Shotgun. Why did we have those installed again? I forget. Kieron quickly subdued the video it with a pool cue and I’ve posted it beneath for your viewing pleasure. Finally, we get to see what they’re doing with this humans-versus-Necromorphs multiplayer mode without the shield of fancy editing and cinematic camera angles.

And it looks… well… a bit boring, I think. Go see for yourself.
