Day 25. So I’m currently sat in on the XBox360 dashboard, in a party chat with @folicacid aka Ian, and we’re just chatting about the usual – gaming, music, the zombie apocalypse, and ultimate downfall of civilisation as we know it. Typical Thursday night conversation. Now, when I say ‘that game trailer‘, I am of course referring to the Dead Island trailer…yes, that trailer. It’s a truly amazing trailer, that trailer got me excited about gaming again. For so long, I’d been feeling quite ‘oh gaming…yea…whatever.’, then I saw the Dead Island trailer. The whole concept of the trailer, being in reverse, … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// Zombified Conversations
Day 17. So yesterday’s ShOcktober was all about Isaac Clarke, and how awesome Dead Space is. And all of his brutal deaths, got me thinking on some of the most brutal video game deaths that I’ve seen, along with the creepiest moments. So yea, today is gonna be a mash-up of all the video game scenes that have freaked me out, or made my inner Jigsaw squeal with bloody delight… F.E.A.R – sadly the video is really dark, but it sort of adds to the tension. The overall death is truly brutal though, and creepy as Hell! This is why … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// Game Gore
Day 16. I’ve written about Dead Space 1&2 before, but they’re such good games, that I’m mentioning them again. Seriously, you need a scary game to play over Halloween? Look no further than the DS series, I actually had to play DS2 with my gaming partner, at the time, while in party…squealing at her, whenever I got scared aka constantly. So yea, both games have some brutal, and often interesting death scenes, for Isaac (I love Mr. Clarke <3) and for randoms…let’s take a look: Yea…not overly brutal, but really rather odd thing to stumble across, while you’re traversing the … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// ‘How I Died’ by Isaac Clarke
Warning! – immense spoilers for Dead Space & Dead Space 2! Today you’ll be exploring the vast, and often hostile, Dead of Space…but you’re not alone, Mr Isaac Clarke will be your guide. To me, Isaac is the definition of BAMF. He’s seen, and done a lot of pretty messed up stuff, poor guy. He’s had to deal with the events on the USG Ishimura, all while thinking his girlfriend was helping him, only to discover she’s been dead the entire time, and the Marker has been making him hallucinate her the entire time. Then poor Isaac is locked away … Continue reading 31 days, 31 gifts – Isaac Clarke Edition!
For some insane reason, my co-op partner & I decided to both rent, and play F.3.A.R. Now, seeing as we’d be able to actually play it co-operatively (unlike DS2, which we had to play through in unison), we thought it’d all be fine. Not too scary or difficult…how wrong we were. The first 2 levels were fine. Not difficult, not overly scary. I played as Fettel, and I really enjoyed possessing enemies, or helping my partner by raising enemies up, who were in cover. So yea, we were having fun…until the 3rd ‘interval’. Everything was as normal, then we had to … Continue reading I Fear F.3.A.R
So yea, I’m alittle (okay, maybe a lot) late to the Dead Space 2 party, but at least I showed up…in the end. After much persuasion from a certain cookie loving, resident evil obsessed nerd, I agreed to play Dead Space 2. On the condition that said nerd would play it through with me – we hop into party chat, and play through the campaign in unison. (Random thought: coop for Dead Space 1/2 would have been awesome) I’m actually surprised at how much I’m enjoying this game! The ‘necromorphs’ are ridiculous looking, and the way some of them move … Continue reading Playing Dead Space 2…or ‘how I deafened my friend’.
