I’m sure this video title has absolutely nothing to do with the other Sci-Fi space shooter game due out next week. Well to be honest it probably doesn’t and yet I’m sure there isn’t going to be any lost sleep about the use of the word. What I do know is that there will probably be some lost sleep from playing Dead Space 2 since the first one pretty much messed me up so much.
In a rare moment of pacifism in Dead Space 2, the games’ protagonist, Isaac Clarke is tasked with simply getting from A to B. And while in most environments that would be easy enough, Isaac needs to perform whats called a Halo Jump to get to the coveted B location.
In the vacuum of Space that means firing yourself from a cannon, without the aid of a safety net, if fact with a blatant disregard for any form of safety whatsoever.
