old thread 50452300The gang's back
>>50535654I know it's more /v/idya, but DS3 could have been so good, it would only have taken a little tweaking to story and keeping the combat mechanics of DS2. I think the potential is what made it all the worse.
>>50535654alright here we go again will you be continuing your story Jukebox?
Some other weird tech from the Dead Space setting that might result in some fun hijinks in Mass Effect.Already mentioned the biggest deal with Shock Point drives not needing Relays for their navigation and propulsion through the cosmos.Would be funny to see the pre-Issac incursion Andromeda colonization mega vessels roll in 100 years later to already find that galaxy seeded with Shock Pointer prospectors merrily cracking planets with their nightmare ribcage cruisers. Gravity Plates/Generators would be an interesting power drain but not need Element Zero to attain the same effect.Stasis fields fall into the same category of localized manipulation of gravity without the need for Eezo. Might provide a nasty surprise for Biotics.The recycling fabricators of the shop kiosks on Dead Space vessels. At least by Issac's time they could pulp a variety of precious metals into a space suit, ammo or medigel with no problem.The interconnected nature of the RIG system and the casual cybernetics use by DS citizenry. If memory serves Elle even had her screwdrivered eye replaced by DS3. As compred to the Syd Mead clean lines futurism of Mass Effect.Also I really want to see how much OUCH a DS stasis field puts on a living being vs the relatively gentle space magic of a biotic's Eezo field.
>>50535727Yeah, just doing some re-writing. Will post tomorrow
>>50535910There's also the BPC, also known as, "that one creepy-as-hell part of Medical with the babies floating in green tubes."BPC stands for, "Biological Prosthetics Center." Direct from the wiki, "The biological prosthetics are apparently created by means of cloning the individual, rapidly aging the clone to adulthood and then harvesting the prosthetic limb or organ from the clone; no mention of how infant clones are grown to adult size in anything resembling a speedy manner. Presumably the clones are created with no higher brain functions."
>>50535910Also I really want to see how much OUCH a DS stasis field puts on a living being vs the relatively gentle space magic of a biotic's Eezo field.What I find interesting about stasis fields is the implication provided by twitchers. That a militarized or properly modified stasis module can generate a zone of accelerated time for the wearer. Vastly increasing their reaction time and movement speed against those still in the normal reference frame.
>>50536041Meant to add to the end there. "Probably uses tech similar to stasis, but in the opposite direction, speeding up relative time instead of slowing it down."Remember, stasis pods are mentioned in DS2 as being used to keep people stable while proper tools and doctors are assembled to work on their case. This hints that stasis isn't gravitic manipulation.
>>50536143and it shouldn't really be that hazardous
>>50536513Considering safety standards in the Dead Space setting I'm pretty sure OSHA went right out the airlock and launched straight into the sun.
>>50536513I think the hazard of stasis comes from partially stasising someone. I mean, imagine you're running from someone, and a stasis blast hits the wall next to you, but only catches your arm. You're going at a full run, and your arm suddenly snaps to about one-tenth of that.Now imagine you're standing on a piece of malfunctioning equipment that suddenly snaps to life, bucking like crazy. Someone tries to stasis it, but misses and catches your upper body as the rest of you, hooked to the machinery, is yanked away.
>>50536143I totally forgot about the Twitchers makes more sense for the Stasis Field to be what it says on the tin then. Something that slows or as per your example changes the localized perception of entropy?>>50536041Good eye on the BPC. No idea if craft smaller than a Planet Cracker would have the room to house an entire BPC. For thematic horror insta-fetus spare part vats are an appropriate technological innovation.Mining accidents happen. Especially with the delicious industrial application origins of Issac Clarke's loadout. The manic abandon of DS planet coring capacities would make Eezo extraction an easier though far more devastating process. I'm thinking the Citadel might be aghast at the idea of processing entire worlds for their juicy centers. Then again ME2 had that whole planetary resource scanning minigame.Wondering how advanced the Artificial Intelligence technologies of Dead Space stack up against that of ME? It seems like there's a distinct lack of autonomous devices outside of the little resource gatherer drones from DS3. Though those were more a balm for DLC.There's the bigass AI mainframe running The Sprawl in DS2 however but that's not very mobile or even all that helpful.
>>50536807Mass Effect computers shit all over Dead Space computers. Dead Space barely has conversational computers, Mass Effect has full blown AI in spades.
>>50536807After the thread last night, I had a terrible thought. DS3 meets DC3. That's Dino Crisis 3, aka, "mutated dinosaurs in space." In DS1, there were marker infested infants, which were removed in DS2, then came back in DS3, but they weren't infants. They were dogs. Marker infestation is zoonotic.In Dino Crisis 3, MTHR, the ship AI of the Ozymandius, when instructed to use genetic tinkering to create a new form of humanity as the colonists of the planet they were being sent to, created several mutated species of dinosaurs. The first one you meet is an Australis, which is basically what a T. Rex would give birth to if it had sex with a tesla coil. The first one you meet is killed by a swarm of little fucks called Rigels, ten foot long, snake-like, legless, eyeless bastards made using Giganotosaurus DNA. Picture related; they're in the middle of crawling inside it and eating it from the inside out.Now imagine that, infested with Marker bullshit.
Anyone have the screen caps of last thread's stories?
>>50538712Suptg manalso vote
Bumping thread until I finish writing, hopefully I'll have something up this evening but it may not be until tomorrow morning.
>>50535685Preach, they reversed everything good about dark souls 2 because myazaki is an arrogant prick. This is why the mechanics have stagnated to "only block with weapon in your offhand levels" and the story misses a lot of opportunities to reference the second game. All the while going out of its way to make more and more convoluted references to the first game.
This thread shall not die.
Did the manufacturers design the tools you use with the intent of easy weaponisation?
>>50542242Mah nigga, if you work in construction, you'll find that pretty much everything looks like something you can assault an airport with
>>50542242Probably not but due to the nature of the tools since they are used for cracking hard metal asteriods and ship hulls it's not hard to see that a clever engineer with some time and resources could turn them into weapons.
Taking bets on wjo Isaac is going to give the "contact beam.">Nezala's delicious Quarian hips>Jack's crazy ass>Ellie (worst girl)>[write in option]>none of the above
>>50542955God, I hope it's Jack just so that the morning after Jack finds Isaac in the vents, and when she asks why, he replies, "One must think like one's prey in order to hunt them", the he starts screaming and writing shit on the walls. Every once in a while, the nightshift guys hear shuffling in the vents, followed by cursing and something about "Damn Uni's takin mah cutter"
>>50542242im pretty sure a modern mining drill can punch trough any safe vault, so no prize on what does to anything else
>>50543013Forgot to add*After he gets drunkBasically, when Isaac gets drunk, it's vent time
>>50542955>Taking bets on wjo Isaac is going to give the "contact beam."no one
>>50543172>no oneYOU BASTARD! ISAAC DESERVES SOME POON AFTER ALL THE SHIT HE'S BEEN THROUGH!Fuckin' bretheren moons man, breteren moons ;_;
>>50541581THIS THREAD SHALL NOT DIE, NO, IT WILL BE THE OTHER THREADS THAT WILL TASTE 404 AND ARCHIVING!
>>50543172Hey I did give "none of the above" as an option.
>>50542955Would be funny if it were some one completely left field like Shiala
>>50535654Wait so... is there a deadspace /tg/? Or can I talk about my own homebrew ideas, intended to become /tg/, in this thread? My setting may or may not be compatible with Dead Space... The only reason I am unsure is mostly because I've only played the first one, and I know that there's large space faring mining vessels that crack planets. These sorts of things exist in Project Dead S.
>>50543512Go to the archives and read the previous threads, should giveyiu a good idea of what it's about brother
>>50543546OK so no then?
>>50543568Check da archives, because all I can give you is a definite maybe. Sorry bro
>>50543679 so you're saying there's a chance?
I'll give Dead Space 3 this, if it was going to shamelessly, tactlessly steal from something else, it picked a pretty good inspiration.>>50542955Betting on delicious, poorly photoshopped, thicc Quarian HIPS
>>50543172>not indulging anon's waifu fantasiesdoing gods work juke
What's your favorite suit throughout the series, thread?My personal fav is the EVA Suit. The fact that it actually gets a visor when you drift through the space-walk segments really stands out to me.
>>50543778I would have posted some THICC HIPS, but I didn't want to influence people's opinions too much.>>50543835And I respect him for it.
>>50543835It's not so much the waifu that I want, but the waifu's (and crew's) reaction to having to deal with the hot mess that is Isaac Clarke, as well as what he has delt with before.>Waifu hears Isaac mumbling "Make us whole" in his sleep>Asks him about it>He spends the next 3 weeks out of sight of the entire crew>Nobody even knew where he was until they heard a bang and a bunch of cursing from a vent>They had to lure him out with scrap and mining tools
>>50544233I really liked the aesthetic of the witness suit and the snow suit in general.
>>50544285Isaac probably couldn't even sleep in the same bed as his SO without throwing 'bows and kicking.There is no way in hell that man stays still in his sleep without heavy tranquilizers.I also wouldn't be surprised if he was a little bit agoraphobic, given how being sealed in a bulky suit was frequently the only thing keeping him alive during the most terrifying times of his life.
>>50544355I wonder what he would do if somebody triggered him? And I don't mean tumblr trigger, I mean firing a rifle or blowing a grenade near a veteran of the Somme trigger. Would immediately start trying to kill everything? Would he flee to a secure area and lock it down while he builds weapons? Or would he just sorta... shut down, go on auo pilot? These are the things that keep me up at night. How does a man live when hehas seen too much?
>>50544532Helmet up, stasis down the immediate area, retreat, draw weapon, and lodge himself in the most defensible location he can find in the immediate area, so long as it isn't the Med Bay.Though it depends on which Isaac we're talking about, cause post-DS2 Isaac shot his triggering alien-brain cancer ghoulfriend to death with mind bullets and was a lot happier after.
>>50544532the shut down and go in auto IS what isaac did on 3he just does not work anymore unless theres stress or shit got real
>>50544728And DS1 Isaac just goes real quiet for a long, long time.I'd hate to be one of his shipmates.
>>50544796i like to think that in DS1 he was so scared/halucinating due marker that he only could say yes, no and *grunt*
>>50544894Well, he didn't get that way until he'd seen Nicole's "Dear John" vid, right? Kendra said he'd been blocking out the memory of the rest of the tape, which implies that he might have seen it with the rest of the crew, or that she just used her special Earth Gov clearance to take a peak, so he might have been miming it up from the very start of the Kellion's jump. However long that took them...
>>50544532Triggered Isaac wouldn't shut down, he wouldn't have survived this long if that was his response to stress.Id expect him to freak out and flail around, warding off anything he sees as threatening behavior and diving for safety/any weapon he can get his hands on. After that, it depends how triggered he is. If he just needs a chance to catch his breath, he will be fine.But if Isaac goes full-on flashback mode? It would be extremely dangerous for anyone else to be around him.
>>50544532I'm pretty sure the plasma cutter, line gun, and a few other of his arsenal would cautarize the wounds. So he would'nt necessarily kill people, just dismember them.
>>50545248Depends on what he's carrying.The javeline gun alone can impale, electrocute, and -explode-.
Isaac would probably love ME ships. A lot less vents, sharp corners, nooks and crannies. And most of all, effective lighting! Still, if something seriously gave him triggered, you'd have to track him down by following the trail of destructive looting head leave across the ship as he geared himself. Kinda curious, hod do you think he'd fare against the Flood?
>>50543512Tell me more
>>50545573im sure issac loves any ship desing that actually thinks of the safety of crew, those dont really exist on dead spacegonna need some info on that halo thing
>>50545843It's like Necromorphs, only you don't need to be dead for the Flood to infect you, and the Flood actually gets more intelligent with every victim, as it asorbs tgeir memories.
>>50545237>>50544532I guess I should've been clearer, what I mean by "shut-down" isn't like him just stopping, I mean he just shuts down his mind and immediately starts acting on instinct.
>>50546158then isaac al he needs to win is get absorvedhis mind is chock full of the necromorph signal bullshit, and im willing to bet that the moons are as old as the universe so yeahit changes the flood into necrosenjoy
>>50546261Eh, not really. The Flood, once it forms a Gravemind, is the single most intelligent being in known existence, and pretty much immune to mind-fuckery due to the fact that the Flood is actually the corrupted remains of the Precursors, who are the ones who are believed to have seeded the galaxy with life. They are two story tall Psychic crabs that reached "Techno-Gods" level of advancement. So I think the Flood would be immune to Marker fuckery.
>>50546489im pretty sure that the signal is more intense/worse the more inteligent you are
>>50544233Mine is the suit from severed, that touch of asymetry really livens it up
>>50546826Actually, Isaac was able to stand it more than others because he was smarter. The smarter you are, the more you can stand it
>>50544594>>50544728>>50545237>>50545248>Shepard, Miranda, and Jacob leave the ship for a few hours on Cerberus business>Come back and the ship looks like it has been through a war>Crew are scattered around, either unconscious or wounded, doors are cut open or sealed shut>The armory is looted of rifles and explosives>They eventually make their way down to the cargo hold>Jack has a broken nose and three broken ribs>Grunt has a broken arm and is missing two fingers>They are also covered in crude marker scrawlings>And look like a mix of rage, terror, and guilt on their faces>Kelly is attempting to coax Isaac out unsuccessfully >Chawkwas trying to patch Jack and Grunt up while simultaneously going purple in the face from barely repressed rage>Tali is next to Kelly trying to hack the door lock, but Isaac has completely rewritten the code in a language she's never even heard of that seems to be based on an unknown language translated into morose code>Shepard asks what in the actual flying fuck happened>Turns out Jack got super drunk, found Isaac's Dream (read: nightmare) Journal, and came-up with a hilarious practical joke>She recruited Grunt, the poor socially inept bastard, into her plan>Painted themselves like Unis, covered themselves in "blood", and surprised Isaac by sneaking up behind him and shouting "Make Us Whole">Isaac screamed, got a dead look in his eyes, said not again, then went on a self-preservation fueled rampage>Punched Jack in the face, kicked her away, then somehow tackled Grunt to the ground before power stomping his arm>He grabbed his cutter and line gun and made a beeline for the storage room in cargo>He stopped for nothing, and nothing could stop him>He also looted the armory and engineering for parts>Isaac had sealed the door and, as they later found, the vents leading into the storage room>It took three days for him to leave
>>50548485>The first day because he was stuck in the past, the other two because he as stuck between unrelenting rage and unbelievable shame>He met with Kelly everyday for the next two weeks>He stopped when he noticed how the meetings affected her
> Mass effect 2> Harbinger possesses some indoctrinated dude to taunt Shepard, eyes glowing like flashlights> "Assuming direct contr-."> Issac flashbacks to marker visions, screams, and never stops punching harbinger in the face
>Brother Magos Clarke's ship is, like every respectable Magos would have, one of the best things the Adeptus Mechanicus had to offer. However, for some strange reason, he chose a Cruiser instead of a readily available Arc Mechanicus.>The reason for this was that he needed something that was fast and maneuverable and well armed and armored instead of something that would be large enough of a target for dedicated anti-battleship weapons.>The ship was named by Clarke after a ancient Terran explorer known back then as Crozier.>Immediately after initiating a Warp Jump, the ship nearly got destroyed by a strange Immaterium anomaly and got off-course by a thousand light years.>Needless to say, the journey of Magos Clarke started out very rocky.
>>50548260The marker imprinted how to destroy markers into his brain. I think he might be the exception, not the rule. Markers imprint themselves into the minds of the intelligent so they'll make more or stuff like regenerators. Maybe Isaac stopped taking san damage because he took max san damage and started going into supersanity.
>>50548485>Some still say that he's actually in the vents, controlling his suit with a crude remote control and a half-bastardized copy of EDI>Grunt never got those fingers back, though he was mysteriously gifted with two corn dogs a week after the event>All they know is that Isaac has never apologized to Jack
>>50548952>Jack apologized to Isaac one day after she, again, got hammered>The only response was was a vague grunt from the nearby vent
>>50548936so insane he became too sane?
>>50549193Yes, that is exactly what happened to him. You can even see it at the end of 2 and most of 3
>>50549322would not call isaac sane in any way, hes pretty much a man shaped husk that reacts to shit happening
>Liara get's that uncomfortable twinkle in her eye when Isaac cracks a joke about being a one-time archaeologist>And I'm not talking about "Embracing eternity">Shanghai's him into being dragged along to a newly discovered Promethean tomb>Isaac is intensely paranoid, because he's Isaac>Nothing bad happens>Paranoia intensifies>They reach the center>Liara brags about how not every ancient tomb or long-dead civilization is horribly boobie trapped, this isn't one of his human action vids>Turns out to have been a trap set by the Collectors specifically for her>Isaac is so fucking smug the whole ride back
>>50549412> Collectors deploy their swarm of bugs> Issac gets 'stung'> Nothing happens. "Huh."> "But you- you should be in Stasis!"> "Oh? Oh! No, I can't be put in Stasis. Its a safety feature."> "..."> "Do your engineers not have that? God, your workplace accidents must be AWFUL."
>>50549490Kind of ironic, coming from the man who's been attacked by doors, thin windows, haywire drills, and the floor.
>>50549412>Isaac's face when
>>50549600>Uses the plasma cutter to write "I FUCKING CALLED IT" on an asteroid
>>50549539And imagine how much worse those would have been if engineers were not immune to Stasis! Isaac would have stasis'd himself half a dozen times just due to proximity.
>>50549193Yeah it's like Ghandi's aggression in Civ when he inevitably takes freedom. It starts at 1/10 and gets -2, since it can't go negative it goes to 255/10.
>>50549745>"Okay Jack, it's your turn.">"This is fucking stupid, I don't see why I have to play if that creepy motherfucker doesn't have to!">"Isaac...""Ugh, FINE!">"Okay, Jack-">"Never have I ever used Stasis on my dick!""Oh you fucking cunt."And that's when the Normandy stopped having Therapy Slumber Party Night.Kelly was devastated.So was Legion.
>>50549709Even better>Hey, Liara, is your phone ringing? BECAUSE I FUCKING CALLED IT!Then writes "I FUCKING CALLED IT" on an astroid
>>50549872i wonder whats legion consensus on such tecnology and such madness
>>50549872Wait, who used stasis on their dick? who was cunt???
>>50549977Jack workshopped a situation just so she could roped Isaac into a game of Never Have I Ever to find out if he'd ever tried using his stasis on his dick.Can't lie during NHIE, it's illegal, after all.>>50549952Legion probably gets the idea of a mimetic necrotizing supervirus a little better than the others.
>>50548532>>He stopped when he noticed how the meetings affected herMake Us Whole Kelly
>>50549872Speaking of Legion...Will he have a Contact Beam in place of his hole?Or will he have something different? Who is for CORE EXTRACTOR?
This thread... delicious...
>>50550827I dunno if he'll do that
>>50551340Pity.I'd love to see Legion go full Strotheim and pose while shooting.

>RE-WRITE AHEAD"Alright, you got me." Isaac said as he and Nezala exited the plaza with Shepard and his squad. "What do you need?""It's nothing I need, Isaac." Shepard replied sternly. "It's something humanity needs. Me and my team have been working on this for a few months now and-""Hold on, lemme stop you right there." Isaac said, immediately catching on to what Shepard was trying to do, and it was worse than he thought. "You're trying to recruit me into something aren't you?!"Without a way to weasel himself out, Shepard took the direct approach. "I guess you can say that, yeah.""Oh I'm sorry" Isaac said, laughing both angrily and sarcastically. "This conversation's over-""Not if you wanna stay out of the public eye, it's not.""What do you mean?"His quarian companion piped up. "Let's keep it brief. We need help fighting a secret war against a shadowy menace that's been kidnapping humans across the galaxy.""Which same threat is planning to eliminate all life in the galaxy" said Shepard. :o one believes us but a select few in teh government. We need all the help we can get and that includes you. Trust us, there's not any headlines with our fa-""I don't think they told you my story, Shepard." Isaac said sternly, his facetious smile broadening out into a tooth-gritting glare as he began to walk back and away. "I don't care if you're fighting killer freaking teddy bears, I'm not spending the rest of my life fighting."
>>50552431>re-writes>leaves in typosTruely you are a Jukebox Hero.

>>50552731>Liberate Tutamet Ex Infernis!Oh my
>>50552528STOPPIT>>50552431Shepard saw a critical flaw in Isaac's argument. "Who said anything about you fighting?""What?""He's saying that if you wanna wimp out and laze around on the ship, you can." said the large, menacing creature accompanying Shepard."Yes, thank you Grunt..." Shepard replied with chagrin. "Look, I'm not trying to turn you into a soldier. What I am saying is that we're onto something that could mean the difference between life and death for billions. We need your help. From what the admiralty board has told us from preliminary reports, you've got stuff in that junkyard that can revolutionize our world. We heard of something called a 'shockdrive' in their reports. According to written descriptions found in your camp, that technology allows one to travel without use of a relay. We could use that. The whole galaxy can use that.""What, so you want me to personally install this stuff for you?""We have an engineering team for that." Shepard replied. "The thing is, we have several friends in high places that you won't be able to get to yourself, including the Council.""And so you want to be my ticket to the country club, huh?""If that's the way you wanna put it yeah."Isaac was getting suspicious. This paramilitary guy has been pandering to him and siding with him this whole time without really putting his own chips on the table. Only thing he really seemed to want to do was take Isaac where he need to go to get things set in motion with the tech. He did still admit to "recruiting" him, however. Perhaps he just wanted the cred of having Isaac on board. This wan't going to be an easy decision to make. "I'll have to think about it..."
>>50553344I'm just busting your chops Juke you know I love you baby.
>>50553557shucks>>50553344"Well, you've got over a week. We'll see you after your presentation. Think that'll be enough time?""Yeah.. yeah, it should be enough time.""Good to hear. and hey....""What"?"I think you could use this." Shepard then tossed some sort of odd device at Isaac. It was small and metallic and looked like it could be strapped around the wrist."What is this?" asked Isaac"Omni-tool." Shepard replied. "We use them to communicate, wage cybernetic warfare, browse the extranet, you name it.""My RIG can do that...""Well, until it can communicate with everyone else around here, I advise you use that. Be seeing you Isaac. We'll keep you posted." Shepard said as he and his team walked off tot eh docking bays."See ya..."
Wtf would a hanar necromorph look like?
>>50554542a big stupid jellyfish
Would biotics mantain their powers as necromorphs?
>>50554808they can as husks, its how Scions, Preatoreans and Banshees work
>>50554808probably engineers and soldiers that got converted had their stasis modules intergrated into their forms and became twitchers.
>>50554845>twitchers which can also use biotics
>>50554845Right instead of slowing others down they speed themselves up. So what if instead of throwing others around they pulled others towards themselves. You'd find yourself inching towards it and the pull on you would get stronger the more you tried to move away from it so the best thing you could do is stand your ground and fight it, but thete would ve other necromorphs to deal with coming at you even faster because they too are in its gravwell. As more pass you they are trapped near it unwittingly becoming its sword and shield with all of their scythes and teeth and sinew.

>>50562846Sorry, I've been depressed lately
So, what would Issac actually be like as a person?I mean, him being all Crazy Awesome is fun for a while, but I feel as though it's leaving some stuff out.What is his reaction to turning up in the ME universe, a place that (though not without its own demons) is pretty bright, compared to what he knew?What does he feel about (potentially) a place free of the Markers and Necromorphs? Can he move on from that and actually rebuild himself as a person in this new world, or is that beyond him?
>>50563222Isaac just wants a quiet life, I can imagine he'd like to just go back to being a humble space engineer doing his good work and nor having to fear for is life
>>50554542I was thinking about this yesterday when I was brainstorming, I came up with a whole slew of necromorph enemiesI'm gonna save the REALLY good ones, but i'll share a few concepts>Hanar Guardian- same as the DS guardian really, maybe make the tentacles actually hit issac from afar rather than deploy torso's>The Ooze- A pinkish blob that is able to redistribute its body mass and meld in with corruption. When it "travels" in the corruption, said corruption gives off bio luminescence. It can only travel through the existing corruption and make tentacles and shit to whip at Issac. You have to use AOE to destroy the corruption or stasis tentacles.>The Spider- Like the converter except that the hanars tentacles have become semi-rigid, and can scuttle along walls. They can use tentacles to grab up corpses and infect them. They can also hide on the ceiling and strangle unsuspecting victims.
>>50563244Even though his education and experience are now worth very little?Can't just go and get a new arm grown if your old one gets crushed flat by a 30-ton I-beam or whatever, and most of the dangerous spacecraft repair/mining probably gets done via robot in Mass Effect. Not to mention how they use a totally different means of FTL (and other tech) than the shockpoint drive and all of his gravity-manipulating tech (although there's probably some common ground with how gravity and mass are related).
what the fuck does this have to do with 'traditional games'Fuck off go back to /v/
>>50563426>implying /v/ would ever permit such fun
>>50563222It'd be the Call of Cthulhu ending: he'd be admitted into a psychiatric ward for a very long timeIsaac is so goddamn broken that he'd probably be more of a menace and a danger to other people
>>50563222We know what Isaac would be like. We saw it at the start of DS3. He would just sit, alone, in his apartment and drink himself into oblivion. I imagine Isaac, transplanted into Mass Effect, finds that his tech expertise is sort of useless as a profession here, and any savings he had are in another fucking dimension.I imagine he takes up residence as a weird engineer on some colony world or backwater station, fixing what he can and really digging in to the new mass effect technology he is seeing to distract himself. Probably using spare parts and scrap metal to cobble together makeshift versions of tools and technology he knows and understands. His goal is to work his way up to building his own shockpoint-capable private ship. Not to sell, but just so he can go wherever he wants. I imagine he doesn't trust aliens all that much. He thinks they are weird, and before coming here his only experience with alien stuff was the Markers. I also imagine that wherever he lives, he basically has a saferoom that he sleeps in that has thick walls, no vents, lots of locks and is stocked with food, water and weapons. Sometimes he just stays there, hiding from the world until his mood improves.
>>50563729Hell, that's probably what he'd be like with the Normandy crew. Sure, they'd see little glimpses of who he was while they're on a mission, or when he's helping with some maintenance on the ship, but really he'd just be 'there'. Just, sitting in the observatory, staring at the ghosts between the stars and hearing them whisper in his dreams on the off-chance he fell asleep on his own, without the help of pills or liquor. He survived the nightmare, no doubt, but certainly not intact. Isaac Clarke is a broken man who has seen far too much.
>>50563899Which is funny, because he does all of that, but any time he goes onto a station he is probably drowning in Asari. Asari are, after all, drawn to strong and singular individuals. The really impressive specimens. Its how they seek out the 'best' genes. Isaac is going to intrigue any Asari that speaks to him for any length of time. He is one of the most unique individuals in the galaxy. Not sure if Asari mindsex would be a good thing for him or a really bad one, though. Could go either way. It could held take the edge off of his trauma for a while, or trigger a flashback.
>>50564246I doubt he'd go for it, as much for their benafit as his own, the knowledge in his head has driven others mad and he would never want to inflict it on anyone else
>>50564246Or just make the Asari go full "MAKE US WHOLE!".
>>50563899>>50563729>>50563486Yet, around the one known as Shepard, the impossible has a strange way of merely being difficult.For starters, there's a good chance that Shepard has some considerable trauma of their own (Colonist, Ruthless, Sole Survivor, etc) and thus may be able to find some common ground with Isaac. Even if they're not, Shepard has some considerable natural skill in this area, and the resources to help further.And that's not mentioning Shepard's crew, who are hardly ordinary themselves. Maybe it's just personal bias, but I see Isaac finding a curious companionship with Jack (although her tendency to break things might cheese him off after a while), since she might have some idea what being the crazy one is like.Y'know, food for thought.
>>50564278Yep. So imagine a very tired, exasperated Isaac in a bar on the Citadel with his head in his hands, bemoaning that he just wants a fucking drink and to be left alone, with Asari on either side of him giving him hungry eyes.
>>50564284Nah. A space monster-god thing got into Isaac's head at the end of DS:2 and he blasted it into nothing with the power of his mind. It's gone.It's dead. Damn right he's going to be up to his ears in Azure.
>>50564343God damn it's like being the world's most attractive AIDs victim, everyone wants it but you don't want to give them the sickness, the ultimate blueballs
>>50564340I like to imagine that Isaac would get along great with Legion and EDI. Partly because he is up at odd hours of the night and can't sleep, and they give him someone to talk to. But on top of that, they can't be necromorphed and the signal doesn't effect them so he never has nightmares about them with arm scythes and zombie faces. Also, as an engineer, he probably just thinks robots are cool. Tali is probably more interested in his suit and tech than she is with him as a person. I suspect she would find his dead-eyed thousand yard stare super disconcerting and just be very uncomfortable around him. Shepherd and Isaac probably have an unspoken understanding of each other. They both know what it's like to be the one man standing against horrible space evil that fucks with your head. Isaac ended up more broken than Shep did, but that may be because Isaac had to do it alone. Shep has always had a team to help him/her along the way. Liara is probably too interested in the Marker and its history/origins for Isaac.I don't see Isaac as getting along especially well with any of the super military types. He has had some bad experiences with the military, and he seems to get fed up with 'alpha male' types in DS3 pretty quickly.Jack is probably attracted to Issac because she is drawn to risk and danger. Isaac miiiight warm up to her? Maybe, maybe not. Depends on a lot of factors.Miranda probably would kick Isaac off of the ship if she could. Zaeed too. They can both see that Isaac is a timebomb waiting to go off.
>>50564485>Miranda probably would kick Isaac off of the ship if she could.I'm not too sure about Miranda, honestly. Isaac might be unaccustomed to dealing with governmental types (a rogue state, in the case of Cerberus), but I think she'd understand after a while that he's not a violent person by habit, like Jack is.He's someone who's been backed into a corner and poked enough that his fear tipped over into desperate rage, and now that he's no longer in a situation where he needs to pulverize corpses to keep them from attacking him, he might be able to go back to what he used to be before his life went to shit.As long as she doesn't push him hard enough that the "raving feral" part of his brain classes her as an enemy during the period where they're still trying to find eachother's measure, I think they could get along.
>>50564670And what if she does press him to far?
Something that's just occurred to me.We all make jokes about Isaac stomping on stuff, but think about how stamping on corpses and suchlike hard enough to snap bones must feel, even through his heavy boots.No wonder he swears so much...
>>50564703>And what if she does press him too far?Then he never speaks to her again.Like how the vast majority of players react to her, come to think of it.
>>50564670Maybe they could grow to tolerate or even like each other. But first impressions would be bad.Miranda would see him as either a danger to the crew waiting to happen... or worse, a Cerberus Asset with his knowledge of unique technology and exposure to weird alien tech. It would be a very Cerberus thing to do to try and disappear him into a lab if he ever tried to leave. Meanwhile, I feel like Isaac would Miranda sort of on principal. She is this cool, collected clinical bitch working for a secretive organization that delves into dangerous tech. Isaac has met a bunch of Unitologists that acted a lot like Miranda, convinced that the ends justified the means and that their ideology was in the right. As Miranda grows beyond being the Illusive Man's puppet, and Isaac becomes a more reliable member of the team, a lot of these impression will probably fade away so long as nothing happens to aggravate them.
>>50564744It's almost like she is an insufferable cunt.
> Isaac gets picked up during Mass Effect 1> gets drawn into the fight against Saren> helps Shepard, sticks with the Normandy because its the only home he has in this new world> Start of Mass Effect 2> Shepard gets blown out into space> "Oh no you don't!"> Isaac pops the door on one of the escape pods and jets out to where Shepard is to rescue him> Shepard is venting air at an alarming rate, and Isaac doesn't have the tools to patch it> The two of them are tumbling through space further and further away from the wreck of the Normandy and its escape pods.> STASIS> The stasis wears off, and Shepard asphyxiates a little bit more> STASIS> The stasis wears off, and Shepard asphyxiates a little bit more> "Hang in there, Shepard. Hang in there!"> STASIS...> Hours later, when a rescue ship finally picks up the survivors of the Normandy 1, they find Issac running on fumes. Shepard is dead, but Isaac keeps using Stasis on the body even though his suit is nearly out of power.> This is the tipping point that sends Issac back into the depths of madness. This is where he gets sent to the insane asylum that you find him in during his recruitment mission for Mass Effect 2, the infamous bucket-head microwave gun incident. Which only happened, of course, because Isaac heard that Shepard, who he saw die in front of him, was 'coming for him' and took news of his friend's resurrection VERY badly.
>>50564703If she manages to just annoy him enough to make him feel shit then>>50564744But if she intentionally aggravates him to the point his fight or flight reflexes kick in then he dismembers her with tears in his eyes because now he's in The Sprawl again. It will always be with him.
>>50564811Weirdly, I could tolerate Miranda but I dropped Kelly as soon as she turned out to be space-racist against all of my best friends.
>>50564785>As Miranda grows beyond being the Illusive Man's puppet, and Isaac becomes a more reliable member of the team, a lot of these impression will probably fade away so long as nothing happens to aggravate them.Mhm, you've got a good point there.Were I a fanfiction man (and I am, when I've got more time), I'd probably think of something where the two of them get stuck in an escape pod or something, with nothing to do but talk. Maybe I could have Miranda be injured or something, so Isaac actually has to interact with her.
>>50564930I found Kelly and Miranda tolerable, although I never once took Miranda on a mission if there was an option.Jacob on the other hand. Why was he on the ship?
>>50564961>Jacob on the other hand. Why was he on the ship?If memory serves, it's precisely *because* he's relatively boring compared to the rest of them. He's supposed to be a stabilizing influence, although him being under Miranda (in more ways than one, if you believe the fanon mmhyes) kinda punches a hole in that.
>>50564912That is fucking awesome.And after Shepard finally chases Isaac down, through ever corridor, tracking him through every air vent and crawl space, surviving every trap and obstacle and finds the broken man that Isaac has become at the end of a dead end corridor.He's on his knees and he's ready to die. In his mind he has finally gone totally, irreparably bonkers or Shepard is a necromorph because he couldn't save him and somehow ballsed up making sure he could rest in peace.Either way he doesn't care enough to run anymore and he is too tired to fight. Or it's the sedatives still floating around in his system doing the talking.He recovers somewhat after a good meal in good company and retrieving his suit from storage.When they boarded the Collector Ship he was so pissed off and back to his usual self that the rest of them were struggling to keep up.In a 3 man group consisting of Isaac, Shepard and Tali you get Isaac up front with some engineering equipment being used improperly, out of breath Shepard slightly behind him picking of things trying to sneak up and Tali between them whose job it is to carry ammunition and exchange thermal clips becasue there are no brakes on the Isaac train.Harbinger barely gets past "Assuming Direc-" before the Legendary Boot comes down and it has to start again.
im probably a minorty here but id like to see how isaac works with samara and thanethat whole religion thing whould be a hard thing for isaac to not get pissed, probably
>>50565608Eh, you never know. Once he saw that there are space-religions that *don't* involve worshipping evil space-monsters (Legion looks around uncomfortably) he might get on fairly well with them.
>>50535654To be frank i never really liked dead space. It has a cool concept, but the fact that Isaac is a one man army that blast through everthing in his way just killed the setting for me. I mean, there is only a limited amount of "evil monsters that are very evil and very monstery" that you can blast through before you stop considering them a threat. The real quastion is, how can the army be so fucking inocompetent
>>50565608Well with Thane he's not killing for his religion, nor is he forcing anyone to convert, he's basically just a space christian hitman.Samara's religion is basically a code of laws, and requires no one other than justicars to follow, basically Dredd if he was religious. So really, I don't think that he'd have a problem with them
>>50565673"Boy Legion, I sure am glad that you Geth are not vulnerable to the Marker signal.""That assertion is not entirely correct.""...what are you saying, Legion?""Geth platforms can transmit and receive on a wide range of channels. The Marker Signal, as you call it, falls within that range. This platform has even been exposed to a portion of it through extended contact with the remnant that exists within you. Its wants and desires are as much a portion of my collective as any Geth program now.""So wait. Are you going to go crazy and start building fucking Markers!?""That outcome is unlikely.""I don't understand.""That course of action has been suggest on several occasions. However, it has been outvoted every time. Its not an action relevant to our current goals."
>>50564930That's because there's a sort of honesty to Miranda's bitchyness, Kellys on the other hand comes off as insincere
>>50565793The Geth can veto the marker simply by being a genuine hive mind, ironically the upgrades they can get in 3 would remove this strength
I'm more interested in a combined setting then a crossover, where the brethren moons are the largest of the reapers, the markers are adbabied indoctrination devices and the collector facility is basically a safe convergence environment, the husks would all be necromorph builds of various types, the constant use of engineering tools a means of bypassing their resistence to conventional weapons, Omnitools and RIGs working in synch, the Charon Relay discovered with the first or second attempt at planet cracking, shock point drove research gets shelved with how reliable the relays are
>>50537203 The Lurker was in ds2. What are you going on about?
>>50565793I love this.
>>50565952Ah, you mean a fusion fic. That's fair enough, how would you deal with the thing in Dead Space where the Brethren Moons are implied to have eaten all other sentient life in the galaxy, versus the Reapers deliberately leaving and coming back?
>>50565994The reapers cycle set up is more viable for story telling with aliens then the brethren moons eating constantly, it's also more pracrobat in long term, the moons go dormant to allow another generation of civilizations develop, some staying in galaxy as sentinels and others in dark space, perhaps moving between galaxies, with a few active vanguards to manage the cycle, these would be the smaller dreadnoughts sized reapers, while the moons would basically be if unicorn took design tips from HR Giger, serving as the leadership level of the reapers, in the place of an indoctrinated cerberus you have to gave unitologist cultists of varying stripes, some with cerebrum tech, though that other faiths manage to exist in this setting helps a tiny bit.Imagine for a moment being on a moon base and finding it seemingly honeycombed with reaper tech, only to realise the lithosphere formed around it, and it's waking up
>>50566148>pracrobatFucking autocorrect, I ment practical
>>50566148>unicornDid you mean Unicron?
>>50543512I was actually working on making a Dead Space alteration of Dark Heresy called "Dead Heresy"I didn't get far before the whole the DS trend stopped but I'll try and post up what I managed to create.I'm not sure how balanced the enemy/weapon designs are because I only played a tiny bit of Dark Heresy, but it looks like a good system for adapting it.
>>50564703Depending on how far off the edge she pushed him. It could range anywhere from actively avoiding interacting with her, to Miranda suddenly finding herself missing a limb or two if she triggers Ishimura flashbacks.
>>50565793Right the marker would just be one more voice in legion that always votes for "MAKE US WHOLE!" or "YOU MUST CONSTRUCT ADDITION PYLONS!"
>>50564485>ZaeedOh god, I can hear him trying to intimidate Isaac with his war stories>Zaeed in the middle of one of his stories>Crew is looking suitably impressed>Isaac just looks bored>Zaeed asks him what he's done>Isaac leaves then comes back with a projector>Pulls up pictures of necromorphs he's fought>"Let me tell you about fucking necromorphs">hfw>"My favorites were the children, because they were weaker than the adults and didn't explode like the babies">"Oh I didn't tell you about the babies? Yeah, they fucking explode. I first saw one in the nursery when it crawled into its mother arms before painting the room. You could tell that it was a thorough job, not one inch missed">"Course, the babies ain't got nuthin on the fucking Twitchers">Zaeed just looks annoyed that he was one-upped by th new guy>Everyone else just looks horrified
I like to think that every time Isaac goes on a mission with the rest of the team, he always ends up getting separated from the others. Its just his thing. Even in his own games, you can barely walk 10 feet before any friendly NPCs end up getting trapped behind doors or in other parts of the shit or something. So Shepard brings him along, somehow they get split up, and they don't see Isaac for a long time. Until, near the end of the mission, Isaac shows up just fucking covered in blood. "Jesus, Isaac. What happened to you this time?""About an entire dropship full of Blue Suns.""Wait, the Blue Suns are here?""Yeah, I guess. You didn't see any? I figured they were here for the same files we are.""No... didn't see a single one.""...weird. We are done here, right?"You are never entirely sure about the little adventures he goes off on. Its obvious he is killing, just, a lot of people. Like a lot a lot. And the few times you have him actually with you in a fight, his weapons are pretty strong. But some of the stories he tells... he can't really be doing THAT much damage, is he? Like that time he got separated on the collector station, that story about him taking on five Preatorians at once... that has to be bullshit.Right?
>>50535685this so much, the 3rd was basically just an action game, and the crafting system with the mods made things too easylightning gun with an underslung flamethrower and the stasis module with a plasma cutter as your secondary and its actually impossible to lose unless you're playing on the hardest difficulty
>>50566394I don't know about that, she can defend herself, you know.Doubt Isaac has much in the way of martial arts experience beyond "throw it to the ground and kick it/stamp on it/blast it with all firepower immediately available to hand.
>>50566889>"Wait, the Blue Suns are here?""Yes, well, I mean they were. They're dead now."
>>50566927Don't worry, anon. That's what that stupid ice-climbing minigame is for!Everyone likes dying over and over again for hours because Issac can't decide whether jumping from a particular spot will land safely or fall to his death, right? RNG is exactly what you want in a jumping puzzle, right?
>>50566148>>50565952I feel like in a shared universe Shepard and Clark would have their own games focusing in their angles on the same galaxy spanning events, hell Clark could evendors be customizable like Shepard and meetings between the two could be solidified via data transfer, you'd have to be Izzy Clark, wich could stand for Isaac or Isabella.
Purely on the mass effect side of things, I was always slightly dissapointed by the Banshee, I wanted to see something arguably more horrifying, the asari made into highly refined creatures not dissimilar to collectors, with the implication that they are to be the equivalent of the collectors for the next cycle
>>50566889ok i laughedespecially if come towards the end at some point in one of the missions you actually walk in on issac during one of the seriously bullshit sounding messes, or you walk past one of the corridors he was in and you see an unfathomable amount of blood and gore.
>>50567421>Shepard and crew are cautiously advancing through a spaceship hallway>Isaac disappeared, as usual, and nobody's heard from him since>door opens suddenly, and Isaac lurches through, coated from head to toe in red>"Oh my god, did you get in a fight?">Isaac seems confused>"Huh?">Notices the state of his suit"Oh," he wipes some off with a hand, grinning sheepishly under his helmet. "Nah. I, uh, had a look in the commissary, one of the shelves fell on me.">Holds out hand, a sweet smell coming from the thick goo. "It's tomato sauce."
>>50567421>severed limbs are everywhere and there's a pile of torsos, many of which have no heads.
A part of me now wonders what would happen if the two ever went to mars and found a portal to some kind of hell dimension.Isaac: "...dad?"Doomguy: "Son?"
>>50567421>Mecenary base>They find one of the corridors>Merc is nailed to the wall by his arm with a harpoon>"Hey, your friend went that way. Could you spare some medi-gel? And maybe call drop me off at C-Sec? I decided I don't want to be a merc anymore.">Team is staring at the hall>Jack just s, "The fuck man?"
>>50567572that makes me thinkin dead space isaac mom is a unitologist debout, and by debout i mean they sucked the money out of her, and isaac dad simply dissapearedwho bets he apears in DS4 if it ever happens
So is this thread about the original concept (badass AAA in SPACE) or Dead Space?
>>50567690"Isaac, we are here to talk.""Oh. Okay... wow, is everyone on the Normandy here?""Listen, Isaac... this is an intervention.""For the booze? Fucks sake, Shepard. You know its the only thing that lets me sleep...""No! God, no. Drink as much as you like.""Then what the hell is this about?""Isaac... you really, really need to stop nailing people to walls.""What.""Seriously. For a while it was just you using your biotics-""Actually its called a Kinesis module.""Whatever the fuck you want to call it, Isaac. You would occasionally just throw stuff at people. And that's okay sometimes. Jack does it too. But ever since you built that goddamn harpoon gun, every mission has been a horror show. Its like a Space Depot sneezed and killed ten people. Its like walking through a science exhibit of rare bugs. Its like-""Okay, I get it.""Its like the hallway is a bulletin board, and the NOTES ARE PEOPLE.""I SAID I GET IT."
>>50568125Doesn't seem to be able to decide, which is starting to get on my nerves a bit.
>>50568169I vote badass AAA.>You are now entering Engineer space.>We provide quality, timely repairs to stations, structures, and ships that are damaged, derelict, or on the verge of destruction.>If your station, structure, or ship is not damaged, derelict, or on the verge of destruction, the appropriate arrangements will be made.
>>50568125>>50568169Its a continuation of a very popular series of threads from last year that started off being about Dead Space and derailed specifically into Isaac Clarke as a recruitable team member in mass effect. Weirdly specific, I know, but there is some kinda magic there where the concept just churns out gold. Art, writefaggotry, you name it.Technically the thread can include other dead space discussion or crossover stuff, but the Mass Effect/Dead Space mashup is what seems to be the most successful. Its certainly why I am here. So if you feel like the thread is schizophrenic, its probably because you were not in on the context of the thread. But thats whats going on.
>>50568134>Isaac never actually told the crew why he fights the way he does>Or why he drinks the he does>Or why he only ever sleeps with the lights on and the vents sealed>He's only ever told them bits and pieces, enough so they know he's seen some shit>After the Omega Relay he decides to tell them everything, because they've become the closest thing to a family he's had in years>Warns them before hand that he's basically baring his soul to them>Tells them everything>Everything>Crew's faces after hearing the river of shit that is Isaac Clarke's life
>>50568419and now I'm trying to work out which crew mate is which face in the pic
>>50568419That image Anon Holy fuck my sides
>>50568472Not pictured: Mordin taking a worrying number of notes...
>>50568242Actually, I've been here from the very start. What I meant was that the constant stories about Isaac about the greatest badass ever is starting to grate on my nerves a little.Feel free to disagree with me, you're entitled to your opinions.
>>50568514Agreed. The mashup is best when exporting Isaac's interactions with the other characters and the setting. The other characters should be kind of shocked and occasionally horrified by Isaac. His does, after all, have an alarming tendency to dismember people. But that does not make him a badass, it makes him a psychopath.
>Whenever confronted with enemies, Isaac is the only one that doesn't jump into cover immediately.>He doesn't quite stand there, but he doesn't move a whole lot, either.>Really, nobody knows exactly what he does during a fight. At some point the Stasis is so thick that it gets hard to see, and all the plasma begins to warp optics.>Maybe Isaac has a weapon somewhere that he's scary accurate with. Some sort of concussive hammer, something he's developed a penchant for hitting enemies in the head with.>But that still doesn't explain why his boots are covered with an astonishing amount of blood.
>>50568634>The other characters should be kind of shocked and occasionally horrified by Isaac. His does, after all, have an alarming tendency to dismember people. But that does not make him a badass, it makes him a psychopath.Dismembering stuff and stamping on corpses was a habit forced on Isaac by the circumstances. It was either that or die.I don't think it'd be not something he'd do as a matter of course. Honestly, I can see him as not wanting to join Shepard on the vast majority of their missions because it'll involve having to kill people for reasons aside from "desperate necessity". He might just want to use his new lease on life to try and finally put all that stuff behind himself.
>>50568514I see where you're coming from man, but I still like them because of how ridiculous and funny they are. However, I do still agree with you, which is why you can tell which posts are mine by how depressing they are. Isaac is a badass, no doubt, but he is also a broken man who cannot escape his past, because it won't let him.
>>50568419Shepard = Doc ManhattanGarrus = ReevesJack = WolverineTali = SpidermanGrunt = Fat lex luthor
>>50568828And that's a great interpretation for the character. If you assume he joined up during Mass Effect 1, then fighting the Geth would have been the best starting point for him. The Geth are robots, he can probably handle shooting robots. And Husks... just FUCK those things. DS3 did show that Isaac isn't exactly UNwilling to shoot at people, but in those cases it was mostly Untiologists. Unitologists are almost not even people, and they started it.But yeah, I thing Isaac defining feature is 'what it takes to survive'. He doesn't seek out fights like this. The first one he stumbled into, the second he woke up in the middle of, and the third he basically had to be dragged back into until everything became so fucked the only direction was forward.A lot of Mass Effect he might very well sit out. After all, this isn't even his universe. But once the shit hits the fan, Isaac will probably act to defend himself, his friends, and eventually the world. He would be very unhappy about being dragged into the fight against the Reapers, but what other choice is there? Not fighting them?
>>50568514I don't like it when Isaac is made into a mary sue BAMF, but I do like seeing his unique brand of insanity clash into other settings, so i kinda agree with you
>>50568980>Grunt=KingpinFixed that for you. Ass.
>>50568831Especially because Clarke was genuinely HAUNTED, as in an external intrusive psychic force, by his past and still has the holes in his psyche that the Marker signal and later communion with the Brother Moons left in him.All in all I'm wondering how Prothean sensation dumps and Reaper Indoctrination would have any access points after all the cosmic rewiring Clarke's greymatter has gone though.Also what about all the junk ass pop culture assets that Clarke brought over copyright free now that he has crossed dimensions. F33L anyone?
>>50569035I knew who it was, no need to be pedantic
>>50569012I like him being brutally efficient in battle and nearly fearless, but not invincible. Isaac could take a bit of a lickin, but necromorphs could still kick his shit it in with relative ease if they could get within arms reach of him.
>>50569331>brutally efficient in battle and nearly fearless,See, I don't even know about that.By DS3 he was practically like "lol scrubs can't even dismember, git gud", yeah, but that was with necromorphs. He's used to them by this point and he knows how to deal with them. Now, I don't think he'd wuss out with anything new, but he certainly won't be a pro merc-killer overnight
>>50561672Issac brings a new meaning to 'deep mining excavations' if you know what I mean hon hon honh
Wait, are we at bump limit?
>>50542319So much this. Power tools are lethal.
Anyone have that screencap from the star trek threads about the redshirt that lives in the access tunnels? I feel like that would be a pretty good summation of Isaac in a Star Trek setting.
>>50570722nah but I got this
>>50570722Dave Innatubes? Yeah I got the Dave cap.
>>50571317Holy shit, /k/ exists in the 24th century. Also, is it bad that I can easily see Isaac doing this with the tubes and vents? Like, it's an unspoken rule to NEVER enter tubes or vents without letting Isaac know.
>>50571028I was giggling the whole damn time I read this
>>50571503>/k/ exists in the 24th century.ave nex alea mufugguh
bump for future write faggotry
>>50554104Calling it now: Isaac is gonna nigger-rig the omni-tool into his RIG.
>>50548952All we know is he's called the Stig
>>50574086I think he just will salvage it and rig everything he can onto RIG
>nigger-rigI think you misunderstand the inherent of Isaac nigger-rigging random shit into usable tools and weapons.It's not because he is MacGuyver. It's because literally everything around him malfunctions in Dead Space. It's literally a survival skill for him at this point. If he was unable to arbitrarily nigger-rig shit into working contraptions, he would never get anywhere.

>>50536807>Good eye on the BPC. No idea if craft smaller than a Planet Cracker would have the room to house an entire BPC.On the Ishimura it's, like, two rooms. I think they also have one on the Valor when you visit it.
>>50571028>>50571632This is basically how the Chozo in Metroid work. In fact, that is how EVERY scientist in the metroid setting works. But with varying degrees of competence.Lemme give an example:Chozo>Chozo 1: We've discovered a planet full of near impossible to kill mimic parasites that could doom the galaxy on SR388.>Chozo 2: This is a problem. What should we do.>Chozo 1: Let's create an equally near impossible to kill hyper-predator who feed off them and randomly populate the planet with them.>Chozo 2: ...could we not just blow the planet up? We HAVE a planetary scale destruct charge right here in Tourain. We could literally just shove this thing onto a shuttle and fly it into the planet.>Chozo 1: ITS TOO LATE I AM DOING A SCIENCE!!!1!!!!1!!!!>Chozo 2: *sigh*>Mother Brain: That's okay Chozo 2, I thought your idea to remove the one safeguard that's stopping me from eradicating your pathetic dwindling species was a good one.>Chozo 2: Thanks Mother Bra...wait what?Space Pirates>SP1: Let's expose this metroid to radiation to make it breed!>SP2: Oh, all it's done is make it grow big... and horrifying.>SP1: ...Let's do this to Kraid next!>SP2: But how will he get out of Zebes if we do that?>SP1: We could build him some tubes!>SP2: TUUUUUUUUUUUUBES>SP1: TUUUUUUUUUUUUBESHuman Federation>Scientist 1: Let's try to clone metroids and breed X parasistes at the same time!>Scientist 2: They've already escaped and killed us all.>[and scientist 1 and 2 were X]
>>50569534Because Isaac was not born whole and I like it that way.
>>50575906I guess Nicole made him whole.
>>50576993For a while, then she died.
>>50576993>>50577121Indeed.Also poor Isaac had bad luck with women...
>>50575906>Isaac was not born wholewhy did I laugh
>>50578134And that's a fact.Even the official art-book says so.
Just reinstalled DS1, which means none of my previous saves are available. Starting from complete scratch. Which weapons should I use? I always use cutter as my primary, and pick one other weapon to upgrade as my secondary. So far I've done cutter/force gun, cutter/contact beam, cutter/ripper. Which one should I use this time round? Leaning towards the pulse rifle, but line gun could be fun too.To keep it /tg/, what would happen if the necromorphs met the tyranids? Would the marker btfo the hive mind, or would nids gobble the morphs and become even more horrifying?
>>50578525Personally, I would use the pulse rifle, the secondary fire is great for clearing arenas.
>>50578525It would probably turn into something akin to a stalemate>nid dies>nid becomes necromorph>necro dies but not before killing one
>>50578525Do the flamethrower and necros vs nids would probably just stalemate.
>>50578525Line Gun made that first semi-boss fight against the Black Necromorph and the Implanter in the Morgue when you're trying to get the Captains keycodes an absolute doddle. I just popped a laser mine down in front of them, waited for it to break the glass and then finished the Black one off with the rest of the Line Gun clip.
>>50578604>Advocating the Flamethrower in Dead Space>EverYou might as well just tell him to do a solo-Plasma Cutter run.
>>50578719>>50578707>>50578604>>50578594Guess I'm going pulse rifle, I love the idea of the flamer but it's just too shitty and uses ammo too quickly. Line gun sounds op, I'm liking how much more tense the game is without all my upgraded weapons and suits. Thanks guys.And on reflection, tyranids would btfo necromorphs pretty easy now I think about it. Bio acid, fleshborers etc
>>50578525Gonna sound mad Vanilla, but just dump everything into the RIG and plasma cutter. Save yourself some nodesAlso, I'm wondering if those two hive minds would just end up fusing
>>50579619if we are using the tyranid hivemind im pretty sure the moon lose by default, they aint big enoughbut insolated groups of tyranids? now that is free corpses for the markers
>>50578525I really like the line gun- its basically a plasma cutter+ which can only fire horizontal- so it's great for leg removal and lurker killing.
this thread needs to live!
>>50578525Honestly, my weapon of choices is Ripper for clearing swarms, Contact Beam for anus-boss and Line Gun for everything else.
>>50582068Ahh the good ol' Kiensaw
I feel as though there should've been more melee weapons in Dead Space.
>>50582228But... There is a STOMP and PUNCH! What else do you you need?
>>50582320Well, before I got the game and all I knew was from promos, I thought the ripper was a hand-weapon.
>>50582068Honestly, I was forced to use a fucking ripper through whole game as main gun through sheer amount of ammo to this thing. Honestly, this space mining ship sure does have a LOT of industrial saws.
>>50582228>>50582320It's one thing I liked in DS3, bayonets
>>50578924It seems to me that they would just meld together into an amorphous mass of FUCK. They both seem to have the same basic goal (consume whatever is consumable), so you'd just end up with Necronids that could spontaneously sprout new limbs and perhaps also spontaneously come back to life even after being killed, along with producing even more gigantic bio-forms and joining multiple individual creatures together to rapidly form larger ones.
>>50582482Why would bayonets be any use against Necromorphs?
>>50582631God can you imagine the moment the necromorphs manage to kill a bio titan and it starts to turn.
>>50582656If your gun is long enough I suppose you could use it to stab one and keep it away from you while you think of something better to do
>>50582905Could make a spear for that, although you'd probably have to put a crossbar on it like a boar spear.
>>50582931But a long gun with a bayonet is a spear, a spear that shoots bullets!
>>50582990It'd have to be a very long gun to keep it out of arm's reach of you.
>>50563899>Samara tries mindsex on Isaac >Isaac gets a headache, Samara gets ptsd
>>50582320The motherfucking plasma chainsaw from the mediocre movie.
>>50583372Heh, be good if Isaac's brutalized mind kick-started all of Samara's hormones and she starts feeling an overpowering urge to look after him.
>>50582656It's a high frequency blade on the end of your gun
>>50583372>Samara is in the bar after sexing up Isaac>She looks like she is trying her absolute hardest to get shitfaced>Jack pipes up with a "Wow, was he THAT bad a fuck?">Samara doesn't even turn to her before speaking>"I have seen things you people wouldn't believe. The beauty of the edge of galaxies, ships like the skeletons of giants tearing the very flesh from planets, and...IT. A thrice goddess cursed monolith that even the Reapers pale in comparison to. A vile construct that twists the flesh of life and death for its nightmarish ends. Ends that the Code cannot explain, ends that I cannot possibly hope understand, ends that laugh in the face of sanity, and defies all laws of the void, nature, and even the universe itself. Or rather, I saw it through him. It tried to speak to me, to whisper its damning words in my mind. But he stopped it before it could. But I know why he stares into the void now, even though he believes not in the Goddess. He see the ghosts and demons of his past, and hears their whispers in his ear, he knows its ends. I would like to be alone now, I must meditate.>Everybody stops asking Isaac about his past after that>Except Jack>Fucking Jack
>>50584094It could be because Jack just wants to fuck something crazier than she is.
>>50584177Yeah, that's probably it
Mass Effect/Dead Space crossover is all good and all, but what if Dead Space/Alien crossover with Ripley?I mean, it fits. Both are corporate employees trapped on a malfunctioning ship by cosmic horror menace, which they fight off successfully despite the odds.
"We have a problem.""Whats wrong?""The protheans, there is a reason they never completed the crucible. It's power requirements are incredible massive. Even plugging this thing into the citadel wouldn't be enough. We would need to harness the power of a star to meet these requirements, and its not like we can just do that. Unless we can come up with some kind of huge powersource, this isn't going to work."The room goes quiet as the news sinks in. Isaac stands up and starts pacing frantically."Is everything okay, Isaac?"Isaac doesn't respond, he just keeps whispering to himself in his helmet."Isaac!"He snaps out of it. "Huh?""Are you okay?""Yeah, just... god, I don't even want to say it. How... how much power do you need, exactly?"He doesn't even notice his hand moving almost by itself, tracing a crude image of a Marker on the table.
>>50452300you really should learn to link properly
>>50584260Ohhohohohoh, shit, now there's an idea.
>>50584253Might be cool. even works easier that the Dead Space/Mass Effect mashup in terms of how it happens.Instead of transplanting Isaac into Aliens, transplant Ripley into Dead Space. Its a really easy sell to say that Ripley is simply from earlier in the Dead Space timeline. before planet cracking, before stasis. The early days of extrasolar mining, before they got good at it. She goes into hypersleep, doesn't get found until much, much later. Not sure when she should show up in Isaac's story, or how they would have any chance to really meet up. The only thing I can think of is her being on the Sprawl during DS2, but that sort of feels wrong.

>>50584319i think it runs better in the later parts of DS1, mayve the ishimura pulled the ship for repairs/resources/parts
>>50582805Big pity this Necro was never used in the animated movie.
>>50584260>Reapers are made from the liquefied biomatter of an entire sapient species. Each.>Markers reanimate dead biomatter.>Well, at least it'll kill the Reapers.
>>50584260"Isaac, what do you mean?""Just... just give me 24 hours and all the booze you got. Have Chawkwas on stand-by in case, well, in case I start writing in my blood-""WHAT!?!""What I'm about to write down for you are the equations and plans to a Marker. When I start writing I'll going somewhere I've blocked off for a long time, and I won't be able to control myself much.""A Marker? What the fuck is that?""The reason I'm fucked up."
>>50584831Isaac if he even considered helping build a marker with the condition that they destroy it and launch the rubble into a star and then blow that up just in case.
>>50584907Immediately after they are done with it.
>>50584907I was gonna put in a bit where Isaac s them to just fucking blow up the Citadel if he doesn't give them the all clear within 24 hours of them contacting him, but felt it was unneeded to my continuation of the other anon's post
>>50584381Pretty much my reaction too.
>Try out DS3>Bunch of macho army dudes need his help>They know the shit he has achieved more or less singlehandedly>Despite this they constantly insult him and push him aroundDoes it get better? Do I at least get to kill these fucks? Why did they think that it was a good idea to get Isaac cucked in the first place?
>>50586920They needed Isaac to get cucked so you can win Ellie's affections all over again. Video games (and EA especially) don't really know how to deal with relationships beyond the 'winning the girl' arc. Its why Nathan Drake gets back together with whatserface every game and then their relationship falls apart again between games so it can reset. To be fair, Isaac is... not good relationship material. He can perform a rescue like nobodies business, but he is too crazy, broken, and recently out of a relationship with an undead space horror to really be marriagable.
>>50554104Well can your RIG create a FUCKING LIGHT SWORD!?[STOMPS INTERNALLY]
>>50584260How do you even get energy from a Marker anyway? Just hook up jumper cables to the pointy bits of the zombie apocalypse inducing alien monolith and hope for the best?
>>50590683I've been under the impression that it's got a wireless adapter that works on everything
>>50590756Then why in near proximity of it everything works like a shit? Marker was on Ishimura yet this whole ship had a faulty lighting, power surges and blackouts? Hell, even near a Fuckyou Marker there was a power errors.
