The truly fantastic enabling game Deadspace Extraction is now available on the Playstation network or as an extra in Deadspace Two Special Editions, and is the best reason to own a Move, says our guest writer. Find out how he conjured a basic human instinct and crated a hardcore gamer from scratch.
If you didn't happen to purchase the collector's edition of Dead Space 2 (or any copy as a forum member points out) last week on the PS3, which included a free copy of Dead Space Extraction, you'll be happy to know that you too can now enjoy the two player co-op light gun shooter without the $80 price tag now that's its out on the PlayStation Network for $15.
Previously a Nintendo Wii exclusive, Dead Space: Extraction is headed to your PlayStation 3 with Move support. Now you can sever limbs and extremities in upscaled high definition, and you can still do so with a partner. All signs point to this being an exact transfer from the original retail release, but the best part is how you can get your space-gloved hands on it - Dead Space: Extraction will be included on the Dead Space 2 Limited Edition Blu-Ray.
Last year, one of the best titles to hit the Wii came and went without much in the way of sales. Dead Space Extraction was extremely well reviewed by critics, earning an excellent 4.5 here at Co-Optimus, yet the horrific lightgun shooter failed to move many units. According to developer Visceral Games, that didn't bother them too much.
When you're trying to survive and dispatching horrible nightmarish creatures, the last thing you want to rely on is your own personal reflexes and range of movement. Yet the Nintendo Wii horror shooter Dead Space: Extraction proved that waggle immersion can make for a good entry in the genre.
It seems like the Wii just can't catch a break with some of the gore-riddled games. In response to somewhat disappointing sales, EA will be unleashing the previously Wii exclusive Dead Space: Extraction on the other consoles as a downloadable title. It was previously reported that EA was making this shift, but that rumor was shot down as a just that, "a rumor" according to EA themselves. We're glad to see them rescind that claim to bring the game to a much more accepting and wide-range audience.
Like a strange alien creature that was once the dinner lady, the latest news about the Dead Space franchise could be described as missing a few limbs. Rumors are abound that the fun on-rails co-op shooter Dead Space Extraction is being adapted to High Definition for LIVE and PSN. Despite disappointing sales, we at Co-Optimus think it is a great game and I personally rate it as one of the best games I have played on the Wii.
Sometimes, we get very disappointed when sales numbers are released. The latest example is Dead Space Extraction. Let's take a look at everything this game has going for it.
Dead Space Extraction takes you on a wild and creepy ride in a co-op on rails shooter for the Wii, that's anything but the norm for the system. Deep with Dead Space lore, extraction is violent, bloody, creepy and intense. But is it fun?
Dead Space Extraction, the on rails shooter prequel to Dead Space, is out today for the Nintendo Wii. It features two player couch co-op throughout the campaign with drop-in and drop-out support, as well as two player co-op in high scoring modes.
The stories for this week:
Game Name: Dead Space: Extraction
Co-Op Type/Multiplayer Type: Local, Drop-in/drop-out
Publisher/Developer: Visceral Games
Release Date: September 29, 2009
“We know a lot of people out there like playing with their friends, with their family, and so we wanted to support that. But the other reason [for the co-op play] is that we kind of wanted to move away from strict survival-horror rules – which are, you’re alone, you have to really watch your back, [and] conserve ammo all the time – and move more in the direction of action-horror.” – John Calhoun, senior designer of Dead Space: Extraction
Dead Space Extraction for the Wii is two player co-op title being shown on the San Diego Comic-Con show floor. The folks at Game Videos managed to snag some footage of it in action. The game looks gorgeous and seems to have a pretty frantic pace to it. I think this might be one of those must own Wii titles that a lot of folks overlook.
What you see above is a screen grab from the "controls" video for Dead Space Extraction, the two player co-op title coming out for the Wii this September. What you might not garner from the screen grab is a unique cooperative moment in the game.
