Dead Space 2 – Review

5 Feb

Dead Space 2

Publisher: EA
Developer: Visceral Games
Release: January 28th, 2011
Platforms: PC, 360, PS3

I have but one word for this game. AWESOME. Dead Space 2 by EA/Visceral Games is definitely a masterpiece in the world of survival horror games. Picking up three years after the events on USG Ishimura, Isaac Clarke awakens to find himself in The Sprawl, a space station which is orbiting around Titan (Saturn’s moon).

There are very few changes between Dead Space 2 and the original Dead Space, minor tweaks with the characters movements (It’s less stiff now) but overall the game mechanics remain unchanged. The atmosphere is done incredibly well, always keeping you on edge as you move about in the game. As in the original, the game is very linear, but the pacing of the game is done so well that it is barely noticeable or considered a negative for the game.

There are a considerable amount of moments in the game which just leave you in pure jaw dropping awe, whether at the graphical beauty of the game, or the heart-pounding non-stop action of many of the action sequence scenes which occur randomly.

In Dead Space 2, the events that occured on USG Ishimura have severely haunted Isaac to the point of having hallucinations. The thing’s he experienced, especially seeing his girlfriend die, have driven him mad. The internal struggle that Isaac Clarke goes through in Dead Space 2, adds to the haunted atmosphere of the game.

In conclusion, Dead Space 2 is definitely a great start for gaming in the year 2011. Visceral has done an excellent job on improving the things that were negatives in the original game, such as making combat more slicker and more accurate, and also making the story flow a little better.

Sony Unveils Playstation “NGP”

1 Feb

Playstation NGP

Sony has finally unveiled it’s latest project, the Playstation “NGP” – which is it’s temporary name for this next-gen PSP. This device is jam packed full of technological goodies, and no doubt will provide a great experience for it’s users. It’s new sleek design is definitely an eye catcher, but will the NGP be an over-hyped gadget? Keep on reading, as I list out some of the known specifications of the Playstation NGP!

Battery Life

Sony has stated that the Playstation NGP will have comparable battery life to the current PSP and that users can expect an equal amount of battery life, if not more. Many estimates state that the device will have around a four to five hour battery life.

Specs

CPU – ARM Cortex a9 Core
GPU – SGX543MP4+
Dimensions – Approx. 182 x 18.6 x 83.5mm
Sound – Built in stereo and microphone

Controls, Screen & Games

The Playstation NGP will use a small flash based memory card in order to load/play games. This flash based memory card will definitely help with battery life as the UMD cards from the previous PSP devices were known for eating the battery. The NGP has a large 16:9, 5″ OLED touch screen display and has a 960×544 resolution. Another unique feature with the NGP is it’s touch pad on the BACK of the device which will offer new control experiences. The NGP also features TWO analog sticks (instead of the normal one), and the normal directional pad and action buttons. For motion control, the NGP contains an accelerometer, a compass, and a three-axis gyroscope.

Price

The price of the Playstation NGP is a tricky topic, as there are many speculations as to what it could be. As Nintendo has recently announced that it’s 3DS will sell for $249.99, many are estimating that the Playstation NGP will also be in the same price range.
