Dead Space | Why Am I Even Here?


If you know me, you probably know I am not a fan of horror.

So naturally, my first solo Twitch stream choice was a horror game I’ve had for a long time, but never played: Dead Space. The plot is pretty familiar if you’re a fan of the Alien franchise: trapped on a spaceship, being hunted down by things that travel through the vents – although in this case, it’s the mutated crew of the ship, not an alien species, which somehow makes it a lot worse.

Horror games are always a fun choice to stream, because both the streamer and the viewer can feel pretty involved. And honestly, I’m not sure I’d be playing this game without my followers chatting alongside and giving me the moral support I need to even move just one step!

So, here we are, my first two live streams of Dead Space. Twitch keeps recordings for up to 14 days, so I’m archiving my videos on Youtube as well. If you’d like to follow me on Twitch, or watch the videos on there instead, my profile can be found here.

Please note these videos contain plenty of shrieking and swearing – it’s a scary game! 😉 You may want to skip the first minute or two, as it’s just an interval screen whilst I was getting ready for the stream.

Have you ever played Dead Space? Are you a horror game wimp just like me?

    Hahahahhahah but it’s so fun to watch people play horror games!

    But yeah, I would NEVER play Dead Space, even though I LOVE space games. Like just skipping through your video, the graphics look pretty cool, but NOPE NO SCARY ALIENS FOR ME.

      I never thought I would either, but I’ve now completed it and am playing the second! All because of streaming (I won’t play it unless I’m streaming it because having people ‘talking’ to me whilst playing helps SO much!)

      Also, the second game is a lot prettier and much more colourful. But still scary.

      I just finished Dead Space 2 on my stream this weekend. I enjoyed that game a lot more (way less clunky and quite a bit more colourful). But poor Isaac, ending up back on the Ishimura! 😥

      I’ll stream DS3 too at some point, probably playing with my friend as it has co-op mode. That should be fun 🙂
