It’s Will and Drew’s first time streaming an episode live, and they had an absolute blast celebrating the big 100 with all of their friends. They hit a ton of topics, including flashback clips, the top 5 next gen games they are looking forward to, what rituals they will have when they get their new consoles, plus a look at the WDGR Game Club’s game Dead Space, mailbag questions, live chat banter, and much more!
It’s like a book club but for games! Every month we will choose a game to play through as a community and discuss at pre-determined spots as a group. We will meet in Discord at the half-way point to chat about the game openly.
For the month of October, our first game will be Dead Space.
Dead Space is a 2008 survival horror video game, developed by EA Redwood Shores and published by Electronic Arts for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. The debut entry in the Dead Space series, it was released in North America, Europe and Australia. The game is set on a mining spaceship overrun by deadly monsters called Necromorphs, which were released following the discovery of an artifact called the Marker. The player controls engineer Isaac Clarke as he navigates the spaceship and fights the Necromorphs, while struggling with growing psychosis. Gameplay has Isaac exploring different areas through its chapter-based narrative, solving environmental puzzles and finding ammunition and equipment to survive.
Dead Space is availabe on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One (backwards compatible). It has a How Long to Beat time of 11 hours for the main story. There are a total of 12 Chapters. We will open up the channel to spoilers up to Chapter 6 on Thursday, October 15th. We will open up full discussion on Friday, October 30th.
We’ll be checking in and discussing the game on our Discord Channel throughout the month of October. We’d love to have you join us there, or on Twitter using the hashtag #WDGRGameClub
