      @InfiniteDarkMass No, I understand it is a remake not a remaster because it does more than update visuals, it also adds a voice to Isaac, a really fitting one too, and I'm happy they did justice to the original. But I wish it wasn't 60$ because I don't feel it's worth that, I feel its worth like 30$ because it is a remake, majority of it is still the same sections as the original game from 2008. I shouldn't have to pay 60$ to add a voice to Isaac, make him and Nicole look different, change the way characters act, and update visuals. Its all really good good stuff and a big suprise (for me at least) that they pulled it off and made a solid remake of a solid classic, I feel it should cost 60$ if it comes with the remake and original. I have the original I'm just waiting for a sale to buy the remake (and waiting on a sale for Atomic Heart).

      ​@WDYW I think you're confusing it with a "Remaster" which is usually a poorly done texture swap like we got with Bioshock, which breaks the game more than it improves. I have no complaints paying full price for a remake as polished as this one, with so many visual and technical improvements.
      Though I'm not so sure about the story changes, but I haven't fully experienced those yet. I am definitely against artistic changes, though, like turning the cutesy "carrot on a stick" love interest into a grandma, or changing Isaac's iconic "one step from madness" face to look more like the voice actor. I know what Isaac looks like. Why should I care what the voice actor looks like? I bet it's all done just to make the face capture easier.
      Anyway, I wish Bioshock could get a proper remake like this, with faithfully updated visuals and tech, without ruining the atmosphere or some of the more interesting enemy behaviour. That could even improved, I think.

      Dude Isaac is aprox 35 years old and his wife is prob 37-43 years old. Hes a highly experienced Engineer with quite a few off-world assignments under his belt. based on what we know about planet cracking from the documents each planet crack is a 3-5 year process plus he had to go to college as an undergrad, then grad school etc.

    Motive clearly has some ridiculously talented technical wizards. DICE constantly fails to release properly working games with their own Frostbite engine, and many other EA studios seem to struggle with it as well; meanwhile, Motive managed to make a polished Star Wars flight sim, and now they have a 3rd person horror game with a seamless world. I'm impressed.

      @SANTIAGO VASQUEZ GOMEZ So many things happened in DS3 in my opinion. From broken Isaac to Moon Killer dude.
      And then he died but he not actually die in DLC. Bruhh


      ​@BatboyThe lore of DS3 is great, considering the early discovery of the Tau Volantis civilization and the influence of the Marker. The game is a potpourri of mixed and unfinished ideas with a great background.
      But I agree that the storytelling was a complete mess, with that stupid love triangle, the cannon fodder NPCs. Danik was an underwhelming villain and Awakened wrapped things up in a shitty way.
      I'd love if Motive reworked the game in better ways without rebooting the entire plot.


      I completed it yesterday on Hard difficulty and I still got scared in a couple of tricky spots.
      The game is extremely balanced and it's delightful to play given all the weapon combinations and abilities.

    The original Dead Space did have lockers and containers that mysteriously unlocked later in the game but this was never explained in the story and was obviously done by the devs to spread the loot out for when you had to backtrack. It is a nice touch to add a security clearance system to explain it though.

    the flamethrower is actually so good in the remake - the alt fire can basically 1 shot everything when paired with force gun and/or statis, including the tentacle wall guys

    • NecroParagon
      NecroParagon 10 days ago +2

      I was looking for this! I remembered how bad it was in the original so I wanted to see how it was here. I ended up using it as one of my primary weapons. Honestly it felt a bit cheap at times with how it would stagger enemies so you'd be safe if you just sprayed fire from a corner. I used it so often I almost died on the second Big Boy battle because I forgot I was in vacuum and couldn't clear off the growth on the ADS cannon with it.
      Alt fire was very good for hallways, or "locking down" a side for enemies to attack you if you have to balance them coming from multiple places at once.

      The flamethrower is great. The only weapon I’m “meh” on is the pulse rifle. The contact beam does the same job and does it better.

    • HattedSandwich
      HattedSandwich Month ago +4

      The flamethrower synergizes so well with every other gun. You set a mob ablaze to stun them and cause damage over time, then switch to a precision weapon to cut them apart. If you watch closely you can see the flesh burn away from enemies. Flesh is what soaks up damage from cutters and the like. The flame thrower is an excellent crowd control weapon and is very ammo efficient, especially upgraded. Can also nearly one shot a guardian if you hit the cluster of intestines. Best gun in the game IMO

    • Nicholas
      Nicholas Month ago

      The primary reason I had the flamethrower equipped was because it melted the Wall Guardians. I only need to throw a fire wall at it, and it dies instantly. That and the Swarmers but I actually didn't encounter them that often.

      @SuperPlayer EX Nicole was always middle aged and they started making her look more her age in Dead Space 2.
      Having her look more aged in the remake is far more accurate since she’s a senior medical officer (implying that she has years of experience in the medical field, which, if she was as young as she originally looked, wouldn’t be possible unless she’d been working in the field since 8th grade) who’s busy treating an ever-growing mountain of patients in critical condition while also trying to keep herself alive and avoid becoming Necromorph fodder. High levels of stress can age a person quickly and the stress Nicole would experience in her kind of situation would be more than enough to age her physically.
      The only senior medical officers who are in their early to mid twenties and don’t have lines in their face are the ones in movies.

      @Gabriel Rodriguez tbf, that level of stress she had to endure coupled with depression, trauma, and fear when the whole ishimura got caught in the crossfire when they discovered that damn marker can really wear someone off to the point, they could look like a 50-year-old person when in reality they're closer to 35

    • InfiniteDarkMass
      InfiniteDarkMass Month ago

      @Paper Clip Yeah, totally agree with that. The original Isaac's face fit the role perfectly. He looked like he was a push away from madness even before he got to Ishimura. Changing Nicole's face made even less sense, with how little her character appeared, and even when she did, her role was basically being a love interest bait and a reason for Isaac for going through all this shit. Which doesn't work as well when you turn her into a grandma.
      I bet they mostly did it to make face capture easier, and now people are making elaborate excuses for them.

      He actually didn’t do any voice work for the original Dead Space. He even said in an interview that Dead Space 2 was his first audition for anything Dead Space. They just reused grunts and such in later games so I think that’s where the rumor came from.

      @Jay Sherman As much as people hate the idea of limiting someone's creative vision, we absolutely need publishers to step in sometimes and wrangle things back in 1) so we actually can get a game instead of something being stuck in Development Hell and 2) because sometimes we need an outsider to go "No that's not gonna work, cut it so we can improve the other things."

    From what I’ve seen. The fleshy system isn’t just visual. It’s enemy health. Most enemies won’t sever until most of the fleshy bits have been removed. Which ends up being something the flame thrower is kinda okay for. Stripping the flesh with fire before switching to a workhorse that can actually sever limbs.

      You do have to be much more accurate and can’t just shoot any part of the limbs to break them. If you hit all your shots on hard in the beginning you are 3-4 shots to cut a limb. If you shoot up and down the arm and don’t land shots in the same parts it can be upward of 6-10 shots. I’m only just now getting to chapter 3 but this game really has me on edge at all times, even the jump scares that carried over from the original still spooked me

    Isaac's face model is actually based off of his voice actor. This wasn't the case in the original release because his face was modeled after Max Shippee, someone who was closer in age to Isaac for the original game (Isaac is 47 in Dead Space 1). Gunner Wright, his voice actor and facemodel from 2 and 3 is about 45 now. The characters designs were changed to reflect their appropriate age, since they've always been damned near 50.

    The Flamethrower bomb wall one-shots guardians and holds just about everything in the game at bay save brutes and dividers.

    The flamethrower is actually really useful
    It’s great for stopping enemies in Place and weaken their limbs, Which on hard mode is a god send.

    The reason you get better frames in higher resolution is because you're likely CPU-bound at lower resolutions. Meeting a threshold to trigger GPU usage over CPU can sometimes give you some dramatic performance gains because it isn't relying on the CPU anymore, which is really not designed to handle processing graphics.

    • Buckie Smalls
      Buckie Smalls Month ago

      Just because something is "ultrawide" does not mean its a higher res. Take God of war for example. That being said where is the option for ultrawide for this game. Or does it require 21:9 monitor? I think he was mistaken. Might have been ultrawide, but fewer pixels. His ultra wide was prolly 3440x1440. And 4k 16:9 is 3820x2160. Being cpu bound only means you do not lose much performance when increasing graphic faditly. But you never gain any.

  • Dale Twokey

    The reason they made Nicole look older is because she's a Medical Officer, and not a low-ranking one at that. She's a scientists, a psychiatry and medical professional.
    Nicole from the original looked like she barely just made it out of the medical school. Some people might have a problem with that, but her new appearance lends much more levity to every scene she is. When the game tries to sell me on the idea that she's this med officer trying to make sense of what is going on through observation and research in her side quests, I can believe that. She looks old enough to be very capable of this stuff.

    Honestly, to me it's weird that Isaac doesn't speak just a little bit to himself being in the worst possible case scenario. Even REmake2 Leon and Claire spoke by being weirded by Zombies at the beginning, because that's natural. Seeing dead corpses alive and other monsters is terrifying, and obviously weird as fuck. And when it comes to Necromorphs, those are even worse, being the worst case scenario you can ever face.
    Yes, i hate it when characters give obvious hints or just speak about something unrelated like freaking hand holding my ass. I will never support that kind of thing. I couldn't play Ragnarok because of it.
    But at least he can mutter something at the very beginning of the game apart from "Christ". You know, like being weirded out, and what the hell are those things, and being a bit scared until he adapts like again Leon and Claire in REmake2. They stop speaking pretty fast at the beginnign section until Mr.X shows up again, then they do a one liner and move on.
    At first i didn't have big expectations from the Studio where almost all their games flopped out, or i thought they are doing 1:1 because the original game is so good. But they really outdone themselves. First, because they had a superb foundation, secondly, because the horrible sections were removed and the ship is now interconnected properly and open and they didn't touch upon anything that wasn't broken, just expanded it. And that's how you make a good game. Replace, don't remove the bad parts, and do something fans will appreciate.
    You can say no game is perfect, but 10 out of 10 scores exists, and if i had to rate this one, it would be simply 10. I would rather argue that 1 out of 10 does not exist unless the game is literally unplayable.
    REmake4 does look a little more ambitious, and no doubt that game might be GOTY just from the previews. Or even more, the best shit ever made considering RE4 is a fan favorite classic with some odd sections here and there (Island, but it's getting a revamp, fucking finally and no QTEs), and despite the people who claim it's not Resident Evil because there are no "Zombies" when Resident Evil was never about Zombies since the name is Biohazard. We got to a really good start this year. Dead Space Remake, Hi-Fi Rush, Turbo Overkill Endless Mode (With a lot of new things added, graphically but tweaks too, because the developer LISTENS to feedback and even included everything i asked from him to be added in the game. I wanted Anti-Aliasing and permanent perspective of the vehicles, and the mad lad responded to me and said, sure, i will add them next patch, and so we got it).
    Also funny that you mentioned System Shock, because Dead Space was suppose to be System Shock 3, but not with the gameplay of the originals.

    I think that the flamethrower is more to soften them up then outright defeat. You toast a few, use a different weapon on a different group, and when you turn back to the previous set, they’re as fortified as a marshmallow peep. I mean, your footage showed the crispy ones being taken out by like 3 shots of a full auto weapon, you’ll have ammo for days!

    I do think that the purpose of the flamethrower is cause of the way damaging is done
    They made the necromorphs (as you mentioned) go from clothes to the home in showing the damage being inflicted
    The flamethrower likely serves to remove those first two layers effortlessly (Clothes and Skin burn easily after all) letting you (probably) one shot the limbs with another weapon and save ammo

  • Ultra Instinct
    Ultra Instinct 2 months ago +235

    9:00 The remake's new mechanic of choice between life support and lights and such is probably inspired by Alien: Isolation. That game had a power grid in some areas that allowed you to allocate points of limited electricity to enable or disable certain features of the area, from turning off the lights or turning on fog vents to reduce everyone's visibility, therefore leveling the playing field between you and the enemy, as well as other features like locking/unlocking vents which trades off being able to hide yourself in them for locking the alien out of them, and general electricity usage in the room which may remove environmental hazards like electrified water or electronically locked doors.
    Always a good horror game when you have to make the choice between doing something that might help you OR end up helping the enemy at any moment, further heightening tension and scare factor. Such a thing can't be done with just jumpscares which horror games really need to fucking learn nowadays. Use slow terror mostly, not *just* jumpscares.

      @NotPork Isolation's director only handled the Xenomorph. Not only that, but it was directly inspired by L4D's Director, which handled multiple enemy spawns and environmental factors such as item spawns, shortcuts being present, etc. Hence, this is why I said it's more reminiscent of L4D's Director. The Necromorphs aren't learning your playstyle or adapting to your movement, nor do they hunt you.
      I would not go so far as to say something like "clearly inspired by isolation" when Isolation itself was inspired by another game.

    The flamethrower is much improved, you just gotta know how to use it, specifically the altfire. Still a niche and utility-driven weapon, though, and not meant to kill them as much as aid in killing. Roast enemies, then use something else on them alongside it, same goes for the alt-fire, and vice-versa. That and it's very effective against the swarmers and the Guardians.

      @Modern Games Suck I don't have disdain for "ecchi" lmfao My main genre is JPRGs dude. I know what ecchi is I've seen my fair share for better or worse.
      FF7R literally has a scene where you can pick a dress which shows her off practically in full without her being naked. The purple (or blue??) dress.
      You also didn't make an argument for why you dislike Tifa's design.
      You made one singular mention of Tifa.
      Quote "As we've seen with Tifa in FF7 remake and Kendra in this one, this extends beyond clothing and goes to actual body shape changes." and a vague point about changing something to be realistic.
      Everyone was changed to look more realistic in Remake. The original game, extended universe and movie are somewhat intended to be realistic.
      Her body shape is close to her Advent Children one, which itself had to be changed from the original concept art because they made the characters realistic. So is advent children woke?
      Tifa is as athletic as she's always looked.
      Unless you mean changing her body shape to be more human like as opposed to 70% leg from her concept art is somehow feminist?
      Just say what you mean dude. This vague non speak and inability to coherently explain what you mean is just weird.
      For the what feels like 10th time, what do you not like about Tifa's design and why is Tifa's design feminist to you?

    I think one of the most important things about this remake being so good is that it raises the bar for all the other remakes that come out this year. RE4 and SH2 are really gonna have to pull their weight.

    Isaac in the original actually says 2 words in the entire game, after defeating the last boss and running into the ship Isaac yells "open goddamnit" at the jammed ship door.

    I just figured out how to properly use the line gun. Put the alt fire on an object, take that object along until you meet a few necromorphs, and introduce them to what the altfire can do when pointed at them on the container you're holding :D

      Just Imagine:.......
      Issac dismembers Necmorph
      Issac: "Did I just do that ?"
      Hammond: "With my help of course"
      Isaac's Rig ( it talks now): "Great work Issac"
      Issac Stasis' Necro
      Issac: "Yeah I just did that"
      Elli: "All I keep hearing is I-I-I"
      Isaac's Rig : " Don't forget to replenish your stasis charge"
      Issac Zero G section
      Issac: "Yeah I fly now"
      Meth Tripping Stross: "Woah he's flying"
      Isaac's Rig: "Yeah you fly now"
      Issac Stomps any loot crate
      Issac : "I wonder what's inside"
      Isaac's Rig: " Could be valuable loot"
      Daina or Elli : " Isaac you'll find useful survival items in crates like these if you stomp them"
      Then every Necro encounter is a cutscene introducing the necromorph for like 2 minutes
      The list can go onnnnnnn.....

    I like the system where you only get ammo for weapons you're carrying. It forces you to find a balance between versatility through a large arsenal, and having enough ammo and inventory space to feed your arsenal. I always go Plasma Cutter, Pulse Rifle, Force Gun, and no fourth weapon. Handles every possible situation but doesn't cause you to have to weapon swap when you wouldn't want to.

      I think it’s badass, you sacrifice having more tools on hand for more ammo and vice versa

    You seemed to have a few different experiences than me with weapons. Never had flamethrower or line gun equipped and still got ammo drops for them all the time. Also when I upgraded primary damage for contact beam it wrecked anything that got in my line of sight.

    Don't sleep on the flame thrower. It should be used primarily as a status effect weapon, which has high damage over time. I used it all game and it saved me in a lot of tight spots. Enemies take extra damage when you shoot them on fire. I'd combo tougher enemies or swarms, douse them in flame then use the proximity mine secondary on the rifle. I upgraded it to near max and it does tons of damage.
