Dead Space Guide
Dead Space FAQ/Walkthrough by Berserker
How do the ASCII stars look? Realistic? Messy? That's the only type of design I could think of really. How does the item location format look? This was a new type of format that I decided on a few days ago and I think it looks great. You can scroll through the guide and look off to the right to search for item pickups in each chapter by watching for "Item List".
In the coming weeks, I'm going to try to get this one on par with my Resident Evil 4 FAQ. The thing about RE4 is that I had already been playing for the past two years it was out before finally writing a guide for it, so I knew the game exremely well, unlike Dead Space, which I'm just now starting my third playthrough in.
This one covers both the PS3 and Xbox 360 version. I've gone through both of them and can confirm the slight differences listed in the guide (controller configuration and extra accomplishment [trophy] on PS3). Both button inputs are listed whenever a button command is mentioned. I listed it as PS3 up on GameFAQ since that was the first version that I played through.
This might be my last FAQ for this year. I'm really looking forward to Rygar: The Battle of Argus, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, Bionic Commando, Street Fighter IV, and of course, Resident Evil 5, so I'll probably do something with one or two of those. I don't really think I'd have enough skill to write a fighting game guide (the way I'd want to), so I'll most likely leave Street Fighter alone.

Update (11/17) - Proofread the remainder of the document! The "Tentacle" was added under the enemy section under Basics and some tips were added for the "Don't get cocky, kid" accomplishment that can be obtained in Chapter 4.
