I'm wondering if anyone else got invited to the multiplayer beta? It's awesome so far.
No, i am really excited for Dead Space 2 though. I loved the first.
That game has multiplayer? Why does everything have to have multiplayer now?
Dead Space does not need an MP component. It'll either suck, or it'll suck the life out of the SP component.
I thought it looked kind of interesting. Sort of reminded me of L4D from what was shown in the trailer. But yeah, hopefully they didn't have all their attention shift over to the multiplayer aspect.
Only problem I see is most are going to want to play miners unless there's a decent stealth component for playing as a monster, and they basically showed nothing to that effect in the above trailer.

I just hope they don't screw over PC players with a shitty port with a fatal case of consolitis
You can choose where you spawn as a monster and you can see the human characters through walls. the one compliant I have about monsters is how severly under-powered they are. There's pook which is basicly a small child with claws and a fucked up face, the lurker, which is a mutated frog with 3 tentacles that shoot acid and can climb on walls, and the spitter which are the main necromorphs from the first dead space but can now spit/charge acid. The spitter and humans can't jump but the spitter can sprint. The spitter and humans take 5 seconds to spawn, or in the case of the spitter, 5 seconds to unlock on the monster select screen. If a monster jumps and melees your, or in the case of the spitter, sprints at you, you enter a death-lock sequence which is basicly a button mashing contest. In fact it is a button mashing contest. I can't give you the entire experience with the human because my character currently has a bug that prevents me from going past level 2.

Odd, they called that one a "Fetus" in Dead Space 1 sp, and I'm pretty sure it shot barbs out of it's tentacles, not acid.
Oh god it has multiplayer? Is it as pointless and half assed as the multiplayer in Bioshock 2? You know, that was the only selling point for Bioshock 2, they put you in the EXACT same environment, let you dual wield, and said "go". The multiplayer, it just... I'm just going to assume it is the same thing for Dead Space 2.

It's acid now.
