Damn, I missed Isaac.

Grew up loving this, awesome series, but under EA that's iffy on horror plus with what happened to Visceral, I wouldn't blame Motive after getting this dropped on their lap probably being like:

The video game industry is essentially just a pile of old ropes at this point.

This game didn't need a remake, Not like it was a PS1 game or something.

Nemesis X
Bold of you to assume we'd get something original out of the AAA industry,

Kazenji
Remakes & Remasters, We already got that with the previous Gen. Sure some of them were needed but some of them were also pointless.

No, the first game didn't need a remake. That said, it's a horror masterpiece and it needs another chance with modern horror audiences. It needs to continue, and reintroducing a new generation of gamers to the original (and hugely improved while being faithful according to interviews) masterpiece seems like a fantastic way to do it. I want this series to continue for generations of consoles into the future.

If anything, a full scale remake can retcon some of the issues with the story.

Also, yes, this will give Dead Space a new audience and that is very important.

I finally got around to playing the original Dead Space recently. Great game. Not sure when I'm gonna get around to playing the other two though. I heard they were a disappointment compared to the first one.

Alien Isolation kind of made Dead Space obsolete.


Dead Space is amazingly atmospheric, it just pales in comparison because A:I does it all better.

Also, I wonder if Warren Ellis will return as a writer.

Ellis has gotten himself into hot water recently over allegations of sexual misconduct.

Transmetropolitan is a fantastically written Vertigo title.

I read it awhile ago, and like enough about it. But there was a few things that got old quick.


Like the blatant strawmanning and mockery of Conservativism. Or the vendetta against dogs.


And it is a vendetta, Warren Ellis is noteable for long blog posts hating on man's best friend.

I'm surprised it's a remake. I would of been happy with a updated remastered because unlike RE2 and RE3, I wouldn't change much at all.

I could go with updated lighting effects and re-tooling of the terrible asteroid sequence.

But...I kind of wanted a ME Legendary Edition for the Dead Space trilogy.

Beautiful.

I enjoyed the sound breakdown.....
Especially for this series...which 50% of the scares seem to be sound related.

Cool tech too.

Hope it works out for this game

there are some rare instances where it doesn't work out.

I've got to play the original someday.

Remake was a good choice, remasters are notoriously difficult to get right.

The Devil May Cry remasters completely butcheted the asthetic of the PS2 originals, what with the lighting being far too bright, missing effects, and a general distracting rendered look as if it was a mobile port.

Liking the look and feel of this remake so far, seems they nailed it.

Wonder how the "audio log" ever became a thing?

Like anyone would actually drop audio logs in random places, instead of them logically being on their bodies.

Especially hilarious with five or six from the same person

$20 says Isaac will be talking in this remake.

Is that a joke?

You'd think they'd learn from Link.

Smasandian
Huh? You know the remaining games are voiced.

Dead Space 2 isn't 1 though. Different directors, different design.

1 was essentially a homage to the unvoiced protagonists like Doom Slayer or Link. The fact Isaac only made any sounds when hurt or struggling to breath was a deliberate design choice.

If they're adding a VA, I hope they include the option to switch it off.

Smasandian
It's a remake, it's bound to be different.
If it wasn't then what's the point of doing this.

I would agree with you if the two sequels were also unvoiced but they are not. So adding the main character with a voice is not taking away from the game. It's adding to it.

Considering having a voiced character was pretty good in the other games.

If Valve re-made Half-Life and they made Gordan Freeman a voiced character, that would be bad.

But Dead Space re-make, nope.

Arachnid1
I'm with Smas. I'm glad they have Gunner voicing actual lines in the remake. Isaac is his own character in this trilogy. He's not an insert like Master Chief.
