There are going to be a lot of Dead Space 2 fans out there, and that's primarily because there were a lot of Dead Space fans. Simple math.
And if you were one of many who played and enjoyed the first title – and you hold on to your gaming history – you'll get a special bonus when you pick up the highly anticipated sequel in a few weeks time. Thanks to a reader, we've learned about developer Visceral's plan to include the original Plasma Cutter for those who still have a save file from the first game. So said studio member Louis Gascoigne on his Twitter page :
"gamespot report about carry over of Plasma Cutter in #deadspace2 @deadspace http://tinyurl.com/25mtt5j [you just need any save not comp.]"
Unfortunately, while you'll get the gun, you won't get back any of the upgrades you put into it. Well, that's okay, 'cuz Isaac will have plenty of handy-dandy new weapons to help with his phase two ass-kicking. The demo is currently available to download and we've issued our thoughts on the experience …big surprise that we came away all sorts of happy and satisfied. Can you believe that we're already going to have two legitimate Game of the Year contenders for 2011 in January ? The only question left is- will you have time for both LittleBigPlanet 2 and Dead Space 2 ?
