Dead Space 2

Dead Space 2 is a 2011 survival horror game developed by Visceral Games and published by Electronic Arts. It was released for PlayStation 3, Windows, and Xbox 360 in January. The second mainline entry in the Dead Space series, set on the Titan-based Sprawl space station, the story follows series protagonist Isaac Clarke as he fights against both an outbreak of the monstrous Necromorphs and debilitating mental illness induced by the alien Markers. Gameplay features Isaac exploring a series of levels, solving puzzles to progress, and finding resources while fighting off Necromorphs. The game included a competitive multiplayer, with the Sprawl's security forces fighting teams of Necromorphs.

Dead Space 2


Dead Space 2 is a science-fiction-themed survival horror video game. Players control lead character Isaac Clarke from a third-person perspective through a level-based narrative campaign.[1] Isaac navigates the Sprawl space station completing narrative-based missions, solving puzzles within the environment, and fighting monsters dubbed Necromorphs.[2] Saving is done manually at crafting stations, and automatically at checkpoints.[3][4] The New Game Plus allows players to carry over all current items and equipment into a new campaign.[2] There are four difficulty levels unlocked at the game's start; Casual, Normal, Survivalist, Zealot. A fifth difficulty level, Hard Core, is unlocked after the first playthrough; Hard Core restarts the player from their last save with each death and only allows three saves across the campaign.[2][5]

Papoutis described Isaac's character following Dead Space as "broken", reflected in his actions and state of mind during Dead Space 2.[49] Isaac's mental illness was portrayed in-game through classic nursery rhymes, with a late-game scene involving Isaac's using a needle probe in his eye taking direct influence from the saying "Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye."[30] As part of the exploration of Isaac's mental state, Nicole was included as an illusory character, reflecting both Isaac's specific trauma and reference real-life situations where people lost loved ones.[52] The questioning of Isaac's sanity and perceptions was reinforced using the hallucinations he experiences during the Ishimura level.[34] A larger supporting cast was another early decision, with the large number of female characters described as a naturally-emerging decision for the world design.[24][33] Ellie was described by a staff member as the "female interest" for Isaac.[43] During early production Ellie was known as Rose.[54] Stross was created to communicate backstory to Isaac, acting as a possible vision of Isaac's future mental state, additionally playing into the eye theme through his obsessions.[52] During the script drafting, an extensive subplot surrounding Tiedmann was planned; as an unwilling participant in the Marker project, he would have suffered from Marker-driven hallucinations involving survivors revealed to be long dead, giving his arc a tragic conclusion. This was seen as too sympathetic and left the game without a central villain, so he was rewritten as a "more conventional bad guy".[50]

Using both player feedback and the new setting, the Sprawl was designed around the concept of an organically-growing city with multiple residents and associated businesses, alongside different utilitarian and leisure spaces.[60] The Sprawl designs drew inspiration from interior design of the 1970s and 80s, with part of the horror based around the Necromorphs' destructive presence.[61] The Unitology cathedral drew from the team's experience creating Gothic-style architecture for the Ishimura interior, additionally visually communicating the religion's beliefs and symbolism including the Marker symbol, modelled on a DNA strand.[62] The EarthGov areas and Marker experiment zone contrasted against other areas with sleek and "cold" designs, emulating other popular science fiction such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and the work of Chris Cunningham.[63] The level set within the Ishimura was both an incorporation for returning players, and a level that could be built using older assets and a low budget allocation as much of the art team were new hires unfamiliar with the game and technology.[34]

The chief audio director for Dead Space 2 was Andrew Boyd.[34] The original game has been lauded for its sound design, with the team wanting to improve for Dead Space 2.[69] Boyd highlighted the importance of sound design in evoking horror, citing a section where Isaac travels through a residential area and hears noises from inside the sealed apartments.[70] Nicole's visions had different approaches in sound design; hostile visions had sharp and uncomfortable sounds, while her friendly visions used comforting sounds. To distinguish her from the other environmental elements, Nicole was given dedicated sound effects which would play when approaching an encounter with her.[71] The Necromorph sounds were based on distorted real-world sounds, with one example being a staff member who dry heaved to the point where he was actually sick.[43] As with the original, the space vacuum used a muffled sound environment, focusing on sounds from within Isaac's suit including his heartbeat and grunts.[72] The Ishimura level was able to recycle sound effects and music from the first game, used by Boyd to reinforce the tension of the area.[34]

Following his nightmarish encounter on the USG Ishimura, former engineer Isaac Clarke arrives on the Sprawl, a civilian space station built on the remains of Saturn's moon, Titan, which was broken into pieces in a planet-cracking operation. Here a new Necromorph outbreak begins. Isaac witnesses the panic that overtakes the station from the start.[5]

Those who've played 2011's Dead Space 2 will know the Sprawl is the terrifying space station where the second game takes place. More than just being a throwaway nod, there's another wink toward the arguably superior sequel.

Three years have passed since escaping the USG Ishimura and now Isaac must face his greatest nightmare again. Dead Space 2 will take you on a wild ride to discover the cause of this new Necromorph outbreak. Suit up, get your gear, and make your way across the Sprawl, a giant space station orbiting Saturn, while upgrading your rig and weapons to survive and hopefully put an end to this horrid nightmare. Will you be able to come out of this alive?

Picking up three years after the last game, Isaac finds himself trapped in the space colony the Sprawl as all hell has broken loose. Isaac has to slowly make his way through the city in hopes of finding out what happened and living long enough to escape his horrible circumstances. The hideous Necromorphs have returned too, and are just as eager to rip apart any living thing that stands in their way, while possibly hiding in every poorly lit corner of the city.

The recording of dead space will give information on how much of total ventilation that reaches both ventilated and perfused alveoli and thus allows gas exchange between alveoli and pulmonary blood. Realising that CO2 retention can be an effect not only of low total ventilation but also of increased dead space is one important information. Moreover, dead space will give insight into the matching of ventilation and perfusion. This is because dead space is affected by a number of factors: 1) tubings and valves that the subject has to rebreath through (apparatus dead space), 2/ Airways (anatomical dead space), 3/ Non-perfused but ventilated alveoli, e.g. pulmonary embolus (alveolar dead space), 4/ Excessive ventilation of alveoli in relation to their perfusion that can be seen in chronic obstructive lung disease (another form of alveolar dead space), and 5/ So called "shunt dead space" that is an erroneous description of right to left lung shunt that brings the higher CO2 concentration in venous blood to the arterial side thereby producing an arterial-to-end-tidal CO2 difference. The dead spaces 2-5 are called physiological dead space. The recording of dead spaces can be done according to the Riley three-compartment model or by analysis of the expired CO2 curve. However, both are subjected to potential errors that have to be considered to make a dead space recording meaningful. A correct measurement and calculation of the dead space will give valuable information on the ventilatory support of the critically ill patient and can also be a valuable diagnostic tool. It should therefore not be forgotten in the intensive care setting.

Dead Space 2 will be available on Jan. 25, 2011 for thePlayStation3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system and the PC. Dead SpaceIgnition will be available in Fall 2010 on Xbox LIVETM Marketplace and the PlayStationNetwork and is being co-developed by Sumo Digital.

Extract Dead Space 2 Audio FilesLINK ::: , I'm an avid space cadet player for more than 20 years and am VERY surprised to see your article. I thought for sure the game would NEVER "update" from Windows 7 or XP to Windows 10, considering the current version of the game of course works on both XP and Windows 7. I had a Windows 7 computer and enjoyed playing on it. Recently I was able to upgrade to Windows 10. When I first started the game on my new Windows 10 computer, I had to make numerous changes to the config file to get the game to run correctly on my system. It seems that once I set the resolution to the maximum and the display details to HIGH, and set the graphics as FULL SCREEN, the game now seems to work fine. Of course this is NOT what the game is supposed to automatically do when running on my new Windows 10 system. Instead the game wants to use my original settings. The Windows 10 version has also taken all of the control buttons out of the game, creating a much poorer game experience. If my understanding of the code in the config file is correct, I have no way to make the game use my new Windows 10 settings. This may be a temporary fix, but I still wonder if there is an "official" update of the game for Windows 10. Although the game was at version 7.2 with the latest patch. The game comes with a config file for support XP up to Windows 7. When I run the game now, it is using the config file for Windows 7. I assume there is no way to convert the file so that it uses the Windows 10 settings. I intend to try and find a version when I can play again on my Windows 10 computer.Thank you for the comment. I am glad you are enjoying the game. I too have been one of the faithful for many years and it's really exciting to see other people playing it. Since you are one of the regulars, let me recommend two things. a4e618e0b4 041b061a72
