lol,

tried it yesterday evening (had to restart from the beginning, as I lost my saves in a HDD failure), went down one deck, opened the door through shooting at this energy-thingy next to it, but I can`t go through that door. I`m pretty sure I was further into the game when I played it the last time. I guess I`ll redownload it from steam.

I bought one of them from D2D. Couldn't really get into it because of control issues. I might pick up the console versions at some point for a more effecient experience.

Or get a gamepad for the PC, probably cheaper.

Think my Logi one cost $20.

I've put about 5 hours into the game so far and I'm really liking it except for some of the awkward key and mouse commands. The game is pretty freaky.

Thanks Jedi. I Keep forgetting that I have a wired usb 360 controler that I think I can use on the pc with the correct software. Never tried it before but there's a couple of games I must say that would be easier on the hands with a controller.

You've got Win7, IIRC that natively has the drivers for the wired 360 controller. If not, I'm sure after you plug it in Windows Update will grab them in minutes.

I use the controller for basically console game ports that never worked right with kb/mouse, like the recent Tomb Raider games, Lego Indiana Jones, and Force Unleashed 1/2.

Hmmm, I'll give that a try Jedi.

I've adopted an XBOX 360 controller setup (w/ Chatpad) via Xpadder that has become my preferred PC input device. It doesn't replace the KB/M for FPS's, but it really excels w/ RTS and 3PS's.

I'm almost done playing "Dead Space" for the first time and I have to say, this is definitely the creepiest game that I've payed since FEAR. This game has actually made me jump in my seat a few times.

Yes, having just replayed Doom 3 I appreciate DS's NON-use of "monster closets" and other cheap triggers. They went genuine for once.
