I never played Dead Space, despite playing through 2 and 3. I think I have it on Steam, but now that they're remaking it I'll probably just wait for that to come out.
Hmm. I'll wait and see probably. The second one was published by EA and was great, though I know EA also famously turned the 3rd into crafting/microtransaction festival and everyone hates it (besides me), so I'm guessing the popular narrative is EA was hands-off the second one. I'd have to get some decent speakers or something for my desktop to play on PC, it's currently running out of a crappy little set of stereo speakers plugged straight into the motherboard since my external focusrite sound thing diedIf you want a pile of junk that EA heavily has their hand in, go ahead. The animations and such that they've shown look pretty trash and break the immersion where even the 2008 version, though somewhat dated still looks and feels more fluid than what they've shown.
For real. Unlike RE4, which I still have a huge soft spot for, OG Deadspace still has tense moments and makes you feel claustrophobic. Which is kinda what a survival horror game should be trying to do.The first one is a classic. It's basically a way better RE4 in space imo.
Yeah that's part of why I hate that fight. You can be doing great for ten minutes and then just get 1 shot. Happens all the time with his 1-shot laser enrage thing at low health. :/ At least in elden ring the fights tend to be over in about 2 minutes one way or the other.Oh man, I tried fighting Midir again today and I got so goddamned annoyingly close! His bar was down to 1/4 and I had 5-6 estus left, and since I'd been hitting him in the head all the time I would've gotten the critical attack soon. But then I failed to dodge his eating attack... Fuuuuuuuck!!!
Yeah, the laser is the worst kind of bullshit... I've died to that so many times I don't even want to count, but I never fail to dodge that eating attack... Except now.Yeah that's part of why I hate that fight. You can be doing great for ten minutes and then just get 1 shot.

I love both games but Dead Space is a better game in every way imo. The shooting feels so much more substantial, and the game has atmosphere for days. It has amazing creature designs and the whole Event Horizon/Thing vibes tickle me pink as those are two of my all time favorite horror films. Plus the UI/ holo map designs are still untouchable. I can't believe more games haven't copied the idea of the holo map.For real.

Boltgun looks fun. I don't particularly care about Rogue Trader or most CRPGs since I'm still working through the latest Baldur's gate.Not only that, but they're doing a retro style shooter in the vein of Doom called Boltgun and they're also doing a CRPG called Rogue Trader. Sounds too good to be true for that much good stuff to come out, but if it does great, definitely buying them. But for what it's worth, it's not orks they're focusing on in Space Marine 2, it's the Tyranids.
The Selaco demo finally came out, which is an original came made in the GZDoom engine, and they've done a pretty good job so far at making it so enemies aren't just target practice and rather attempt to flank you and strategize.
Replaying Dead Space to get ready for The Callisto Protocol, and I'm more than likely picking up TMNT: Shredder's Revenge tomorrow when it officially gets unlocked on the Xbox store.
If you can, try XL over X, its got all the extra DLC. 11 is pretty, but i preferred X over 11 by a mile. It was way more fun IMO. And 9 was great alsoPlaying Mortal Kombat 9 on the PS3. I haven't played a fighting game since MK II on the Sega Genesis, but it's been fun so far.
I may try X and 11 in the future.
