Dead Space is Fantastic!

Yeah, you heard that right. The game is quite excellent. Don't believe me, well then read what I have to say about the PS3 version:

Dead Space Review

I also typed up a review for Silent Hill Homecoming if anyone is interested. Really I think the Homecoming review reads better even though I spent much longer on the Dead Space review. I've spent MUCH more time playing Homecoming than Dead Space at the moment.

I'm also trying to write up a guide for Dead Space but this one's going to take quite a while. I really should have done this on my first time through like I did with SH: Homecoming, since I was much more involved then. I'm using both the 360 and PS3 version to write different parts. Hopefully, I'll have the motivation to continue.

I'll be receiving Far Cry 2 soon, so I don't know if I'll have the willpower to stay focused on Dead Space for the next few weeks.

UPDATE: Just as an extra, check out this Silent Hill Homecoming video review made by a good friend from a forum that I frequent from time to time.

Right now it's just an onslaught of games. Fable II, Fallout 3, Dead Space, Far Cry 2. My 360 has been away for repair for the last few weeks, so I still haven't been able to play Force Unleashed.

Plus I just built a new PC, so I can actually play Crysis :P Except I'm cramming for exams, so I don't have much free time.

Oh, definitely, with only more to come in November! I'm so worried that my X360 is going to conk out again when I need it most - probably around the time when RE5 is released. Hopefully not though. :( Even though I'll get the PS3 version also, the X360 version looks better on my TV.

My X360 was fixed around April of this year. It doesn't seem to get as hot as it used to after using it now. Right now I'm having problems with Far Cry 2 though. It doesn't want to read the disc sometimes when I place it in the system while the 360 is on - I have to restart the whole console to get it to work. It reads every other game just fine. I think the FC2 disc might be bad.

Too bad the 360 likes to "make noise" randomly as its mood not getting good ha... Well you'll always have PS3 as your "backup" for RE5, so no worry XD Look forward to your RE5 FAQ :p

Berserker said...

I never have really noticed the 360's noise that much. It's hardly ever quiet in my house, so I'm sure that is part of the reason. I like my entertainment loud, I guess you could say. :p

Who told you I was planning an RE5 FAQ? :p Eh, I've been thinking about starting on it sometimes this year... formatting and everything. :D Gonna have a lot of fun with this one.

sephirosuy said...

Because your FAQ record simply told me that you're going to write for RE5 XD Just checked your contribution page again, you got alot of "stared" FAQ on GF, woow.. well done!

Berserker said...

Most of those are from contests (when you win, they're automatically stared). The ones that really count to me are the stared FAQs that readers found helpful - DMC4, both RE's, etc.

I've noticed you've got some stared maps. You have no idea how many times I have referred people to your FFXII maps. Those are SO very useful man! :)

sephirosuy said...

Hmm... really? Thanks alot ^o^

But I still dissatisfy about few of my hard works have not stared yet lol

No choice, I have to improve my English first =.=

Berserker said...

You're map is my savior for Great Crystal emails. It is so very hard to map out that area with text. >_<

The most important feedback that you can get is an email, if you ask me. It only takes a few seconds to recommend a guide but it takes a few minutes for someone to send a comment email - that's what makes them special.

If you ever need any help with editing your guides then let me know. Eh, you never know, I might accidentally add mistakes though. :p Your English is definitely improving - I can see the improvement with each guide you write. That Castlevania guide of your's is really good so far! :)
