Weekend Discussion

By Xav de Matos, Jan 29, 2011 8:00am PST A lot of people have been going on about how wonderful Dead Space 2 is. I don't know if that's true because I haven't played the game. Why? I'm a little too busy playing Dead Space on my iPhone 4.

The iOS version Dead Space is fantastic. I'm about an hour and a half deep and there are no signs of stopping. The controls can be fussy but haven't hindered my enjoyable experience at all. Dead Space iOS also unlocks bonus content in Dead Space 2, if you decide to purchase both.

The only possible issue some might have with the game is the price. At $6.99 for iPhone ($9.99 on iPad, which I did not play), it's definitely a "premium" product. But like Real Racing 2 before it, I don't mind spending a few extra bucks for top notch quality. I just wish it had some Game Center connectivity.

  • Garnett Lee: In withdrawal as the NFL season is all but over save for next week's Super Bowl, I'm not sure what to do with myself. Pro Bowl? NHL All-star weekend? I'll definitely be playing more LBP2 as I check out some of the new community creations and Magicka also beckons, though I'm weary of the frustrations with the game I've seen in chatty.
  • Alice O'Connor: [Adding the letter 'U' to everything but only because the Queen's English demands it.]
  • Xav de Matos: Other than Dead Space iOS, I'm deep into some DC Universe Online action. I'm working on some written features for the game, so look out for that. I have a copy of Dead Space 2 burning a hole through my desk; however, I didn't finish the original. I got near the end and then ran into a situation where I was swarmed by baddies and had zero ammo. Not a good situation.
  • Jeff Mattas: I'll be finishing up Dead Space 2's single-player this weekend, and then see what its multiplayer is all about. Weather at the beach should be nice too, so I'll probably spend some much-needed time in the sun.
  • Steve Watts: I might go see The King's speech with my wife, what with all the Oscar buzz and what-not. Other than that, I'll be spending as much time as possible shirking adult responsibilities to make more time for Dead Space 2. Plus I've got LittleBigPlanet 2 coming in the mail, so that should be a nice palette-cleanser.
  • Ozzie Mejia: In between rounds of Rock Band 3, I'll be refining my plans for next weekend's Vegas Super Bowl trip. Did you know you had to make reservations at some places over two months in advance? Neither did I! You win this round, Emeril.
