They should use the My Dick cover.

That song was terrible.

I quit dead space.

Posted by furiouscabbage

This is about as far away from Dead Space 1 as you can get. Blargh.

Is this what you call nu-metal? Are you sure you were ever into music Alex?

Posted by fazzle

Has the Dead Space guy always been Bradley Cooper?

Posted by OneKillWonder_

Should've went with Nonpoint's excellent cover of this song instead. But either way, doesn't fit this game at all and this not at all what I want out of Dead Space. So I guess I don't really care.

Yeah there was a distinct lack of ung ahh ahh ahh for this to be nu-metal.

Posted by sonicrift

Is it just me, or did this feel like a bunch of random footage cut together? There's an art to making a good trailer. This one looked kind of lazy.

Posted by triviaman09

What an unintentionally hilarious trailer.

Huhhh. I hate being cynical, but what happened to Dead Space. I'm not saying I won't enjoy what it has become. It's just too bad. Maybe it will still be good. We'll find out soon enough.

I have no idea what they were attempting to do with that music choice, it doesn't work in either getting you 'pumped' for it as an action game or setting a good atmosphere for the horror side of the franchise. It's a shame really since the trailer itself seemed like a well put together thing.

Snarky cynicism is the nu-metal of the internet.

Edited by Klei

I'm going to have a different opinion, here, watch! : I'm getting this day one. I loved the demo.

Edit : I didn't know Alex Navarro had a boys band. I hope he's the lead singer. I'm going to browse the internet.

Should have been Hotel California.

Yeah, if you're going to try for Collins, get Collins.

Posted by Alex

@mbr2: Fine, I'll concede the nu-metalishness of it. It certainly sounds like one of those "soft" covers some crap nu-metal band would concoct, but really, that's not why it sucks. It sucks because it's an awful cover of the song and makes no contextual sense in this trailer.

Needs more gorillas playing drums.

Really dumb. The footage felt like any other chaotic Dead Space trailer, which usually fits, but not with Phil Collins playing. They needed to slow it down.

Also, Isaac jumps off the cliff at the end like Master Chief jumping into the Brutes at the end of the Halo 3 trailer? What? Why? There's no safe place to land and no reason not to just safely my his way down.

Sooooo stupid.

The launch trailer for the first game was better. Much better.

The demo for this wasn't too bad though.

Posted by Triumvir

Shite. Sad thing is, if this wasn't a Dead Space game, I might actually be interested.

Posted by GullumF

Can't wait to play this one.

Posted by BoOzak

Well at least there wernt any *daan* (fade to black) *DAAAAN!*

..still pretty shit though.

Posted by CornBREDX

Ya, I like the original song better too. 
 
Still holding out judgement for the game although it's weird they aren't advertising it as a horror game anymore. That seems like a sign. 
Remember: 
  

  That was pretty dumb, too.

Hey. I like Phil Collins.

Posted by JEC03

Not as bad as I thought it would be at least it wasn't Linkin Park or Nickelcrap.

Not enough wubs.

Posted by MormonWarrior

I did a cover of In the Air Tonight for a choir concert here at Utah State. I think the video's on YouTube somewhere.

I thought I did alright. It was fun at least.

I guess dead space being a horror game was ALL JUST A PACK OF LIES!

Posted by VoshiNova

I seriously dislike the Dead Space franchise.

@MormonWarrior: If you're going to transform it on the level of a choir performance, that's fine. Hell, that probably sounded pretty cool. This? This is just junk.

When I saw those spires I just though "Reeaaaapppeerrrssss"

Also considering the past marketing budget for EA games, someone heard this cover and was like "woah this really works much better" and made it so, which is more terrifying than any video game

Posted by DemiGodRaven

Man, did this game sneak up on me.

Posted by Legion_

Wow, that CG was fucking amazing.

Phil Collins' old band was called Mega Drive here in Europe.

Edited by Superfriend

Dude in the thumbnail looks a lot like Rick in the Walking Dead. I´d say they draw their inspiration from some weird places.

Edit: "Take down the Terror" ??! What the fuck dude! Now I know what to expect from this game. Not a lot of Dead Space. I guess they will come out and say "Oh, but that was what Aliens was all about, right?? Taking the fight to them?!" But they will be so damn wrong.

Parts of this look downright silly. Like Lost Planet with a bunch of filters thrown onto it.

Did the guy in the thumbnail just poop his pants?

Hopefully this series departs from necromorphs eventually.

I don't mind Phil Collins, but they made that killer drum riff from this song sound SO BAD in this trailer.

Posted by Hawkerace

Pre-order now to get the Phill Collens skin pack*

*not actually Phil Collins due to copyrights

Posted by Mezmero

I still have no idea if I want this even though I love the Dead Space games. Seeing Issac acting all soldier-y in the prerendered scene is really off putting since he was suppose to be just an engineer from the start. And just making the new threat A BIGGER MARKER seems just lazy. And Kinect support? Are you TRYING to kill off this franchise EA?!

Posted by JeanLuc

Cool trailer, bad choice of music.

Posted by A_Cute_Squirtle

I haven't laughed this hard in a while. I had no idea Dead Space was branching into the action-comedy genre.

Phil Collins does what Nintendon't.

Posted by pbhawks45

You suck, . I've been looking up live performances of "In The Air Tonight" and skipping to the drum part for the past 20 minutes now thanks to this. You are a monster.

I was thinking more Rick from the Walking Dead Tv series
