Dead Space's Isaac Clarke Tees Off With Tiger Woods

Dead Space's Isaac Clarke Tees Off With Tiger Woods

image

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 10 apparently features an unlockable costume that will allow you to hit the links dressed as Isaac Clarke, the protagonist from sci-fi survival horror Dead Space.

Making fun of golfing attire has long been a staple of cartoonists everywhere: Maybe it's the dorky checkered sweater-vests, or the floppy berets, or the silly spiked shoes... whatever it is, some golfers look silly. Of course, they're not wearing a full suit of zero-g mining gear, either.

I'm really at a loss. I don't know what to say other than this image (and the corresponding video) is one of the most bizarre and incongruous things I've seen in quite some time. Apparently, the suit isn't just for show, either - wearing it will unlock the "No Known Survivors" achievement, adding 35 points to your gamerscore.

You know what? It might be nice to have that suit when you're floating in a wrecked spaceship with nothing but its protective layers keeping you from cold, deadly vacuum ... but it strikes me that wearing it in the warm sun of a golf match might be really, really uncomfortable.

Maybe it has good internal air conditioning.

How can he see anything in that suit?

Heh, thats a funny addition! ^^

Thats Awesome!
It would win twice as much if all the spectators turned into Necromorphs.

Haha, well if that suit powers up your strength you could easily drive it 400 or so yards. Ill probably never play this game but they should have added more costumes and characters from the EA library.

Thats funny and awesome at the same time.

Forget using that suit on the links, the golf club needs to be a weapon in the next Dead Space, preferably with Tiger Woods as an alternate playable character.

Why him of all people

Guh-roan...

I think that's the main question. I actually liked Dead Space, but his character is far from Iconic.

Maybe it's because they are both EA games, albeit different sections of the company.

Isn't it cheating because he has telekinesis?

I was just thinking the same thing.

I'm with Penny Arcade on this one. They need to give golf games the Happy Gilmore treatment without the Adam Sandler. Robots, courses on volcanic courses, dinoaurs, zero gravity golf, rocket launchers, just really expand the entire game.

Rocket Launcher Golf? I'm intrigued.

'course, now that Halo 3 has the Mythic Map forge, you can actually make a giant golf course. (With rocket launchers, if you so choose.)

Still, Isaac Clarke playing golf. I like it.

I'd be for it.

That would be beyond awesome.

True. I'm actually playing Dead Space right now, and Isaac does look pretty cool on the Ishimura, but he's just out of place here.

How bout a golf club launcher? Never been done before.

I hope theres stuff to curb stomp in PGA tour 10...

Could you drive a golf ball hard/fast enough to remove their limbs?

Only time will tell..
And hey, atleast it's better than what Outlaw Golf had: A bunch of middle aged men in Speedos... *Shudder*

I might buy the game just to play as Isaac Clarke

This makes no sense, I mean he has no collar....I believe that's mandatory...

Sounds awesome! I'm always glad to see other games get more Dead Space love. :P

Now, bring on the sequel, developers!

That has to be the most ridiculous cameo I've ever seen.

what next? master chief endorses Mountain dew? oh wait.

We should start a petition now to ensure this happens.

Space may be cold but you won't feel that since vacuum is a damn good insulator. In fact space crafts tend to have a problem with getting rid of heat, the sun always adds heat but space doesn't take much away. If the suit is suitable for moving in open space it probably has very good cooling systems and radiation shielding.

Mario Golf?

Where are all the holographic displays that would be saying things like "Golf Ball (press E to pick up)" & the trajectory beam of the ball, etc?
