Dead Space 2



So, after finishing (kinda but not really) Shogun 2 I decided to play Dead Space 2. I cant say I'm the biggest man when it comes to jump scare games and dead space 2 is no exception. For anyone who hasn't heard of it or played it's basically just an FPS set amongst some kind of mutant human infection. But I haven't payed much attention to the storyline so far.

So chapter (level) 1 starts off with a cut scene just setting things up. I all like, chill bro, its not going to be that bad. Next thing some black dudes rescuing me when BAM. He goes down like a sack of shit due to the alien arm spike tentacle thing sticking out his chest. Next thing i know I'm being told to run for my life while all shit breaks loose behind me with screams and growls and mutant assholes everywhere i look. I make it to some door only to have one of them grab me. The games all like press "e" but I'm to busy shitting my own pants so it rips my head off and I'm back to the start. Second time through was a little easier since I was expecting it but nonetheless, more shitting of the pants. I got the alien this time with some frantic pressing of "e". One fraction of the game down. Pants full of shit. So much more to go. That pretty much sets the scene for the majority of chapter one with jump scares left right and center.


I eventually reach what appears to be some boss and this guy is ugly as fuck. Big ol' tentacle hanging down from beneath him and arms as big as houses. But with some clever stasis play I get him down. So he's dead on the ground and  walk over to him when BAMMMMMMMMMMMMM HOLY FUCK his arm lashes out at me nearly blowing my IRL heart out of my chest.

After that I pretty much said fuck this shit and bailed.
