So basically we are ignoring the lovely lady Issac spends time with on his way home?

Get this thing off of me is an awesome premise.

The whole Dead Space hype was lost on me, I found it really boring. Do I need to give it another shot? Am I missing something?

Or you're gonna be missing something when I'm done with you, you hater!
No really, if you didn't like it the first time through, then chances are you won't like it the second time through or its sequel. Did you beat it?

Obviously a hallucination since he survived. and most likely still haunting him in Dead Space 2. But why? She's his wife. I don't want an Alma clone.

Well that and PTSD.

Posted by AURON570

did I see a "2010" in there? maybe it's just referring to the trailer date...Since Dead Space 2 is being released Jan 25, 2011

Posted by BeachThunder

Wow, spoilery =/
 
Also, having a video like this actually makes the plot seem kind of stupid.

No, I didn't beat it but I got up to the first Nemesis style monster fight. To be honest I think I might give it another shot. I really want to like it. It's almost Resident Evil 4 in space.

im really happy that they are going to include the fact the Isaac is crazy after his experience in the first game

Hype? This game had no hype.
Posted by tourgen

nice to see a video like this summing up the bits of the story so far - much better than a CGI trailer or more of that multiplayer gameplay junk

Posted by nERVEcenter

Forgot the Marker was man-made. Glad they created a ton of conspiratorial backstory for the Dead Space franchise, and DS2 is looking quite slick.

My thoughts exactly.
This looks OK.
Posted by hwarang

Nice summary. I never finished the first one though. 

Posted by omgmetalgear

I could not be more stoked for this game now. 

Posted by dezvous

Dead Space instantly became one of my all time favs. Having played the DS2 demo any doubts I had have been laid to rest. I was a little worried it might lose it's horror roots but thankfully it has not. It definitely throws more enemies at you but it's just as frightening as the first game. The sound design is just briliant! This is the reason I bought a 5.1 surround system (literally for the first one)!
 
Cannot wait for January 25th.

Posted by Khalen

Love these trailers that fill in the gaps. After finishing the first game I so want to play the second :D

Posted by barkertron

If he's already insane at the start of the game, he's probably not going to be feeling much better by the end.

Posted by SmokePants

I never understood why they built the stupid marker in the first place. It's like some big MacGuffin monster came along and pooped it out.

Posted by Amp

Necromorphs and Monoliths and Guns don't actually work! Oh no!

Why would you watch a video called "The Story of Dead Space So Far..." and not expect some plot spoilers? Or are you just an idiot?

Huh? What's the reason for the insult? I've played the game through twice. I didn't say I was affected by the video; I just thought it was odd that they chose to show some certain things.
 
Anyway, my thoughts are that the video could have been suitable both for people who want a recap and new players alike. It could have easily been something to entice new players to play the first one without having to give away certain things, whilst serving as a recap for people who have already played.

@Garfunkle: I would guess obviously.

I don't really get the marker thing.  They found the real one and made a man made one? Or the original was man made the whole time? How does it turn people into necromorphs if it is man made?

Posted by avantegardener

I watched my flatmate play the 1st game and it scared the ever living shit out of me. Mind you, during his achievement mining phase, involving playing it 5 times, the scare wore off pretty quick...oh look monster..get that guy...tea?

Posted by TooWalrus

Why did this video somehow make me less excited for Dead Space 2? I loved the first game, but I guess I just liked the mystery of it all, the less story the better, in this case.

Posted by bigtye52@yahoo.com

This game should be right up my alley, but as soon as someone starts talking about it I blank out and get extremely bored. I haven't ever been able to play more than 15 minutes of the game, so boring to me.

Posted by Tesla

Cool video, which reminds me I still need to beat the first game.

Posted by Nux

Fucking AWSOME!
Posted by Nux
@bigtye52@yahoo.com: Just give it a chance. Dead space gets better fast and is really worth a second chance.
Posted by Parsnip

So, clearly Dead Space 2 takes place in Isaac's head, and he is seeing all the people as necromorphs.
 
Right?

Posted by WolfmanJenkins

 I didn't care for the story in Dead Space, and the reason for that was because of the lack of subtitles. No subtitles equates to me not giving a crap about the story.

As I understand it, having for some reason read the book 'Martyr': 
The Original Marker was found somewhere on Earth (South America I think..can't remember). It gave off weird readings and was underwater somewhere. Anyway as we know going near the marker is a bad idea, as it gives off some sort of mind screwing radiation which causes people to go insane. Robert Altman (as in ALTMAN BE PRAISED) was the first guy to work out what it really was...but his efforts to destroy it got twisted into a cult by those effected by the marker. 
The second markers is a copy and was placed on the planet where the Ishimura finds it many years later. 
As to why it creates necromorphs...it's in the name. The marker rewrites necrotic dna (dead bodies) through some sort of wave form (SCIENCE!) and turns them into necromorph carries (the bat things) which further infect other dead bodies to create warrior drones etc and kill to create more dead bodies. Necromorphs cannot be created from anything thats still alive. Only necrotic tissue (thus necromorph) is effected. It's probably the same wave form that drives people insane. 
 
As to the game..the demo was a massive improvement on the first. Not so slow and tank like, and the electro-javelin is awesome. It's also nice that Isaac actually speaks. Hopefully we'll have a proper narrative this time as opposed to the massive let down that was the first game. Come on Visceral...i'll take back all the nasty things i said if you can deliver this.
