    The new Dead Space deserves a fan club ^^


    I like the story especially the part where you have to go on the Ishimura again :p

    What do you guys think?

    I think if they added some "labyrinths" and removed the marker where you have to go to complete next objective would make it a great unforgettable game like SystemShock2 was.
    No matter what monster they throw at me the game still has that console sugar added that spoils the thrill.

    i suggest avoiding any spoilers, use
    tags.


    anyone wondering why it feels slow and laggy, turn off Vsync. the dumbasses capped it at 30FPS (probably a leftover from the consoles to prevent them overheating)

    lol amen brotha

    At least on the pc it looks sharper than on the consoles, how did they use AA in this game, in the first it didn't seem to do much.

    Dumbasses indeed. Having your watercooled rig with top-end everything run at a shitty 30fps due to some lazy-ass coding is just not on. It's the sort of thing that would make me not buy a game if it couldn't be fixed.

    Aye so it's either laggy ass 30fps or 190 fps and tearing the hell out of the images haha.
    Either way Dead Space 1 was awesome and imo a sleeper hit which actually delivered a horror atmosphere something that Resident evil and other have failed to deliver in the last few years.
    I'll prolly get this off steam when its a little cheaper.

    Disable Vsync ingame.

    Use D3DOverrider to force Vsync and TripleBuffering in DirectX games. (CCC and Nvidia Control Panel only force Trip Buff in OpenGL)

    Presto. 60 fps constant with V-Sync enabled. (This method cures all mouse movement issues in Dead Space 1 as well.)

    The only thing that bothers me is that sometimes you have to fight thousands of enemys in a f****ing tiny room. That is just to cramped.

    Also, adding Morphological Anti-Aliasing makes this game look really, really nice.

    You got a HD 5xxx or 6xxx card, I highly recommend it.

    I hear ya bro but sometime its part of the horror experience just like the old resident evil games with pre-rendered backgrounds gave a much better atmosphere (at the cost of some gameplay) using awkward but effective camera angles. Being a fan of the original I'll give this one a shot especially with the V-sync tuning. :)

    chapter 7 has a few annoying puzzles like that

    a DNA scanner you have to throw a corpse through, that i'd mangled so i didnt think of it for ages, followed by an engineers tunnel thing you gotta crawl through... with a tiny button off to the side to change which room the tunnel goes to.


    controls are fine this time around, Vsync tweak makes me happy.

    as we said above, disable in game Vsync. If you want a 60FPS cap, use D3Doverrider.

    Thanx Mussels i read your post i will do that asap when i grab that piece of game, but what im saying is that pc gamers are being not taking into consideration. We are lucky to have the 2nd part in PC, I cant say the same with GoW 2 and the upcoming 3.:mad:

    see I was right!

    it's a good game. I have completed the single player campaign a couple times now. Brad at Giantbomb suggested Dead Space 2 Multiplayer needs a Survival or Horde mode (Humans vs. Waves of Necromorphs) I so agree.

    Ok so all you have to do is turn off vsync in game and enable it in the GPU control panel?
