Dead Space 2 is one of the year's most anticipated games, and Io9 have an inside look at the action-horror series' next chapter. Check out an trailer featuring Smashing Pumpkins, plus their interview with Executive Producer Steve Papoutsis.
Now this is what you call a quality multiplat game.
Of course its a quality Multiplatform game, it's EA, the only company putting out games that are quality on all platforms.
Guess I'll have to say bye bye to the frightening atmosphere and intense loneliness for more action, guns, and out of this world set pieces. Not a bad thing mind you but I was hoping for more of a DS1 feel instead. Even during the demo I didn't feel the same atmosphere that DS1 gave off, it felt empty and full of lame startling moments that did little to nothing for me. Anyway, trailer was pretty cool...not big on Smashing Pumpkins but other than that I liked it. Cannot wait!
Did Isaac get younger?
I could feel it...down in my plums.
Eww, Smashing Pumpkins and Dead Space? What a bad mix.
Yeah. Was that Billy Corgan or a really really old woman singing? Now this tune would have been perfect for any survival horror game: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
That song is much better suited for a Dead Space video.
Smashing Pumpkins FTW.
Has to do more with the lyrics in the song I think. Clarke is supposed to be going crazy in this one and the lyrics fit that.
Hmmmm this isn't a good trailer, music is great but not for Dead Space. Feels too out of character compared to the original trailer.I know DS2 is more action than horror but this makes it look like an action game all the way.... I liked the demo it felt like the old DS but this makes me think it is one great big action set piece. I somewhat like the change though, it reminds me of Aliens compared to the original even though there was more action it was tastefully done and it was tense in its own way but not like the original. I hope this applies to DS2. Reading the previews and interviews it seems DS2 is on track to be a superb sequel but I think it will have a different feel and pacing. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Have to say this was a fantastic trailer.

Can't WAIT for this game!!!!!!!!
The anticipation is killing me...!
I really hate that Issac talks in this one. It takes away from the atmosphere. They are making this more and more into an action game. I guess that's the only way I'd get it. Hopefully its sci-fi stands up cause the horror certainly isn't.
In a recent interview they confirmed that on a scale of 0 to 10 Issac now talks on a scale of 2 - 3. So he shouldn't talk too much but just enough to keep the story ticking over. As for the trailer I have to agree that is does look like a sci-fi action game. I think DS2 will have a different feel to it, there will still be those lonely atmospheric moments but there will be a lot more action sets now. I like the DS2 franchise as a whole but as long as it retains what made the original great it will be fine.
I don't have a problem with that honestly, I adore good sci-fi games that aren't games like Gears of War (I don't consider games like that sci-fi). I guess it wont be too bad if he doesn't talk THAT much, but in a horror game I would prefer the silent hero. It makes things feel much more personal, like it is you alone in that suit on an abandoned ship. They honestly seem to be downplaying the horror a bit for this one in trailers I have seen, which isn't bad as long as they don't tout it as the scariest game ever made like they did with the first one (which it wasn't!).
I agree DS wasn't scary, atmospheric yes but never truly terrifying. It got a little tense when my ammo got low but that was about it. Dead Space was just an all round solid game for me. The silent protagonist was cool in DS as it was refreshing, i think in 2 it is just so they can progress the story. The trailer does make it look like an all out action, I knew there were more elements this time round but this trailer isn't capturing the essence of DS.
Well I don't know about you but I had to pause the demo about 50 times just to stop crying, maybe you should invest in a good set of 5.1 headphones.
Misleading article. I saw nobody smashing pumpkins.
