  1. I clicked the video because I wanted all the lore. Guys says I'll be giving you all the lore but then says that he won't go into details about the book because it's a good read and I should check it out 😂.

  2. Super excited to revisit this, someday.
    Personal preference, but i refuse to pay $70 + tax for a game that can be beaten in a Friday and Saturday night. Once it hits $30 i will grab it. Looks beautiful.

  3. Art style changing back and forth based on flashbacks really took me out of the second movie

  4. Is it ever actually explained how you're supposed to get energy from the marker so that it can solve mankind's energy needs?

  5. Dead space aftermath was the worst animation i've ever seen haha. I hope they have the excuse of sending out each story to different animation studios because the transitions were so jarring.

  6. Mercer was immune to the marker effects tho. He was just a convinced unitologist but he used harris as mediator of marker mexages because Mercer couldn't see them.

  7. Worth mentioning that this timeline left out one small thing: the No Known Survivors prequel flash game ARG that led up to the release of the original Dead Space

  8. My dyslexia only allowed me to remember people, weapons and gameplay. I don't understand how I replayed all 3 games and had no clue what was going on. I don't understand how I'm allowed to drive.. but thanks for this and for not making it hours long!

  9. I thought human goes to space is to do mining mineral using USG Ishimura and bring them back to earth, instead using The Black Marker as helpful resources for Earth.
