Duders! Dead Space 2! Necromorphs!
 
Dead Space 2 is a game in which you play as a dude and your face is occasionally ingested by creatures. I have witnessed this. Also, lasers.

Ugh, two of my favorite LPers (Tobuscus and yourself) are both doing a LP of this game. I want to watch them soo bad, but I want to experience the game for myself at first. 
Maybe when I've gone and beat it, I'll give your LP a watch. Have fun playing it! I personally can't wait to start it, and I'm excited about all the wonderful things I've been hearing about it. Even though I've tried to "media blackout" this game. There were some trailers I couldn't resist watching.

Nothing frightens Isaac Clark more than baby giraffes, NOTHING. 
I now fully understand why that doctor cut his throat out like that. No human being could look Issac in the eyes and tell him about the Necromorph baby giraffes he would have to fight.

Awesome! Dead Space 2 playthrough! This game starts raw. I admit, it was nice to see I wasn't the only one who died in the very beginning running around with the straight jacket on. Did you only die once? Or did you edit those deaths out?

Just finished watching the first episode, and as much as I don't want to spoil it for myself I'll be watching your playthrough without a doubt.

I wish I had got the Hamst3r head preorder bonus for Dead Space 2.
 
Looking forward to watching this.

I can't stand this kind of crap, so it's far more fun to watch someone else get terrified instead of me.

Ya know, I love Dead Space 2, I played the first 2 chapters, it's great, but I'm so deep into Final Fantasy XIII right now, I think I'd rather finish that first, I really like that game, surprisingly.

I think I'm going to play it myself first, but I shall watch your playthrough eventually.

@Jambones: Yeah, Youtube's detection stuff is so simple it's worthless. "OH LOOK, THE DEAD SPACE 2 LOGO, this must be owned  by IGN! Wait no, by siglrhg! wait no,  by SxS gaming!" - that's all disappeared now, so woop woop.

Tobuscus is the best. He said he was going to do a Minecraft one too, but he still hasn't. 
 
Also that Literal trailer is the best one yet

Well, I'm going against my original statement by watching your videos.  They give me a good heads up on what to expect so I don't get scared, even though I'm not having too much trouble with the original (Dead Space) so far, as far as being scared and stuff is concerned.

I'm gonna hold off on watching these until I've played the game myself. Quick question though, are you playing with a 360 controller?

Heh, you had the same reaction with the Giraffe picture? Well, I wasn't quite as startled, but it did remind me of your adventure in fan art. Also, there's a suit exclusive to Ignition (players, purchasers?) that lets Isaac wear jeans in space. I'd say your picture was quite accurate.
 
Also, screw those little tentacle Necromorphs. I still remember that one part in Dead Space where you turn a corner and a million are there. If you get caught in it, you die before you can escape.

I see you fell prey to the future-giraffe's greatest camouflage, pretending to be a child's painting. Oh you fool you.

@Sarumarine:  :D Yeah, fancy that.
 
I was unaware that Isaac had space-jeans and there would be pictures of space-giraffes; I'm just a fan of silly looking animals.

An i7 920 and a GTX 295. Playing the game on max settings and 1280x720 res. I haven't tested the game while not recording or without vsync being on; with vsync on though it sticks to 30, so I'd say it's safe to bet that it's not 60 fps with vsync off. :P
 
There's a thread on the Steam forums about this game struggling hard on higher resolutions, being nearly unplayable at 1080p. There's another thread about it only using one core on a multi-core system. Kinda sadface.

Heh. Dead Space has a great way of presenting characters you learn to hate, and then killing them in a very satisfying way. And this might be a one-sided question, but who had a better karmic death? Kendra from the first game? Or the Unitologist lady?

Be sure to check out the mine layer gun. It works great against those gallimimus stalkers. Or just placing them near vents in case necromorphs pop out. I don't usually use proximity mine things in games, but here it's pretty cool. you can stick them to walls and make a perimeter around yourself. Not too close though since there is splash damage.

I changed my mind after watching your first video, so fun to watch, you don't mind adding on the description what video settings, how you record it etc? :D

Dead Space 2 puts a lot more emphasis on Stasis than the first game given how Necromorphs are faster and swarm harder. Still, there are a lot of cool guns in the game and I ended up not using Stasis all that much because I just wanted to shoot them. Picking a Stalker off with the Contact Beam is one of the most satisfying moments in the game... and using Stasis to slow them down just doesn't seem sporting.
 
Higher difficulties are a different story, however.
