Dead Space remake 2021

Post by Daehawk »

Thanks to Blues News

One of my favorite game series. Well except for that stupid hokey religion in it where everyone wants to die to a alien dna scrambler.

Are games getting like movies now?
Have they run out of new ideas so they just keep remaking the old ones?

I think recreating beloved games with modern tech and quality of life changes is a great trend. It makes a lot more sense than with movies in my mind. If someone hadn't decided XCOM needed to make a comeback, I assume my life would be completely empty!

On the other hand, I don't think you can argue that there are lots of new games too. I mean yeah, most AAA games are sequels, but when you are going to spend that kind of money making a game you kind of need a guaranteed pay off.

Part of the difference, it seems to me, is that technology is changing a thousand times faster for games than it is for movies. Remaking a 1930s classic movie offers the chance to improve it with modern special effects and cinematography. The same thing is true for games, IMO. Especially since games are limited by the hardware constraints of the day. There are a ton of games with great ideas that couldn't be really brought to life that perhaps could now.

Anyway, I enjoyed Dead Space enough that I would grab this if it's not super expensive.

I remember liking the first one and the second one had one of the most memorable openings I can recall, but I'm not sure I actually finished it.

Yeah, I think the key point is whether the game is worth playing again, and to what degree you can improve it. And there's also of course the difference between remakes, remasters, reboots, and spiritual sequels. Dead Space is thirteen years old (somehow). While gaming innovation has arguably slowed in this century, I think that's a reasonable amount of time. What they did with Bulletstorm, on the other hand? I didn't play either version, but it seemed like evergreening.

If the studio doesn't have anything better to do, go for it. This could be a between-projects thing, or a task for a smaller team/outside studio who wouldn't necessarily be working on a fresh, large project anyway.

I liked DS enough to finish it and replay it years later. I started DS2 but never finished it.

The games I would love a modern respin of are the first 2 - well I guess I would take 3 too - Thief games. Modern graphics and not screwing up the gameplay, atmosphere, etc. would be wonderful. But I would still need (actually quick) quicksave/loads! :)

Finished all 3 DS games 2 or 3 times.

I think Thief Deadly Shadows should still hold up well today. I own that last one they just called Theif again...which I HATE so much when companies do that.....and I could never get into it at all.

The first dead space is also one of my favorites. Loved it. Playing it with high quality surround sound speakers made it awesome!... and scary
