Original Thread: Take down the terror ~together~. Let's Play Dead Space 3!



Dead Space 3 is an action-thriller third-person shooter video game for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and is the sequel to Dead Space 2. It was development by Visceral Games and was published by Electronic Arts on February 5, 2013 in the United States and February 8, 2013 in Europe.

A few years after escaping the necromorph outbreak on Titan Station, Isaac Clarke's relationship is falling apart. Ellie, the spunky female protagonist who escaped with him in the last game, has become a shell of her former self, having left him in his dreary apartment to go fuck around elsewhere in the galaxy. Isaac's rent is late and he is headed straight for the poorhouses, which is a little sad considering he's the savior of the galaxy and all.

A radical Unitologist group known as the "Inner Circle" has begun tampering with Marker test labs on major colonies all throughout the galaxy, activating them to begin the spread of the necromorph infection anew, and the story begins on Earth's moon, where Isaac has been enlisted by Captain Robert Norton and Sgt. John Carver of EarthGov (against his will) to stop the epidemic before things get any worse.

Things get worse though. I mean really that's a given. Things get WAY worse.

I wrote a post on the timeline of the Dead Space series, if you want to know more about the lore you should give it a read. It goes over all the important stuff.

Dead Space 3 is not a horror game. It's only marginally scary, the guns make ragdolls fly everywhere, and it has co-op. This game is more like Resident Evil 4: It's an action game, but sometimes has horror game elements in it. I am torn on whether it's a good or bad game so I won't pass judgement on it with just that statement alone, instead I'll elaborate on why that is throughout. Plus it's fun to shoot zombiemen, moreso than ever before. Really, more than anything, it's hilarious, which is why I like it. The over the top and out-of-its-intended-genre gameplay compliment the frankly goddamn awful story and it becomes a symphony of consistently funny schlock.

If you want to watch an LP of the first game, I suggest you check out DumbRodent's currently running playthrough of it here. It's much better than this game for sure, but maybe that's why you're here in the first place.

Yes, to an extent. As long as they are tagged and the thread doesn't turn into an FBI document you can talk about stuff we haven't seen yet. Just don't start off a discussion with I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE GIANT DRILL SHOOTING MINIGAME IN CHAPTER 12 and I'm sure we'll be fine. Also, do me a favor because Blind Sally and Nine-Gear Crow are is staying totally unspoiled, and

Similarly to Dead Space 2, this game does not have dedicated chapter transitions and instead makes the whole game seamless, which makes it a pain in the ass to edit. There are also optional missions, which I will be doing because the rewards are cool/useful. I'll try to keep my editing sane; optional missions will not necessarily be optional VIDEOS, but they will be appropriately placed in the table of contents.

Additionally, me and my co-commentator friends will be doing some co-op videos! The main videos will be in single player because the game's a lot funnier that way, but I will be showing off all of the co-op missions and some of the single player ones in co-op because some really cool shit happens in them! I might also put up a few fucking-around-during-the-story ones. Co-op missions will be marked with a little kawaii Carver head in the table of contents.

As with all of my Let's Plays, there will be two versions of every video: One with cut commentary so you don't have to hear me and my buddies blabbing over the cutscenes, and one with uncut commentary that is pretty self-explanitory. Usually I'd recommend you go for the cut commentary first but this game has very little atmosphere worth preserving so go ahead and watch the uncut version if you can't decide which you want to watch. I have subtitles turned on and this game's plot is pretty bad, so you probably won't be missing anything anyway. Still, the option is there because I know there are people who prefer it that way.

Two extra things that you should read: One, the game's font is goddamn terrible and has a thin black outline that looks like crap and is almost unreadable at YouTube's default size. If you want to read the subtitles please watch in expanded view. And two, the videos are in SIXTY FRAMES PER SECOND IN 720p WOOOAHHH so if you have a browser that supports it make sure to check that option out.

Now I'm just imagining Isaac riding on Caver's shoulders to pass a really tall co-op mission door with a height requirement
