*sigh*

I finished Dead Space a short while ago, and I feel that a fair 12 hours of my life and a sizable amount of cash has been stolen from me. When I finish a game I want some semblance of closure and the ending not to put the rest off the game on its head.

Let's do this from the start.

Nicole is dead. Period.
That we know for certain. The fairly well-known Chapter letter "puzzle" confirms this.
Put the first letter of each mission together.
Mission 1: New Arrivals
Mission 2: Intensive Care
Mission 3: Course Correction
Mission 4: Obliteration Imminent
Mission 5: Lethal Devotion
Mission 6: Environmental Hazard
Mission 7: Into the Void
Mission 8: Search and Rescue
Mission 9: Dead on Arrival
Mission 10: End of Days
Mission 11: Alternate Solutions
Mission 12: Dead Space

Now, knowing this leaves the game with some gaping plot holes. The part where you're protecting Nicole from necromorphs makes no sense at all with this revelation. For the addition off one cheap scare the ending makes even less sense. Not to mention why necromorphs are attacking Isaac in the first place all the time if Isaac is just a tool for it to return the marker.

Dead Space which was largely a good game up to this brings forth an echoin "meh" from me.

The necromorphs didn't want him to return the marker. Returning it would have caused the Hive Mind to go dormant again, thus stopping the necromorphs. It was something else, possibly the marker itself, that was driving old Issac along by way of his wifely hallucinations.

There's going to be a sequel and they're hoping to make it a trilogy, so they'll probably have the third one explain it.

DeadSpace is one of the best games ive played so far, and i knew that girl was dead from the start. (My killer instincts)

First off all i wanted to mention how cool the "first letter of each misssion together" is.

Second, the reson the necromorphs attack Issac is for the same reason they attacked anyone else. To make bodies.

Third, according to wikipedia when Issac looks to the right of where he's sitting in the shuttle at the very end, they say they is a necromorph of Nicloe.

Can anyone confirm this or post a detailed pic?

I also think that Dead Space was a great game, and the ending was hilarious. Mostly because i've seen it before and allowed my little brother to watch (it brings up laughter :D).

The thing with chapter i dident notice either, its auctally pretty cool. About the whole Nicole helping you thourgh the game thing, i think his mind made him other things he dident see, therfore someone else could had helped him, like a random surviver or Hammond or the lady (dont remember her name :P)

I also finished Dead Space, and I didn't trust Nicole from the start. There was obviously something up with her.

I only noticed the chapter message because of Wikipedia.

When you're protecting Nicole from the Necromorphs, you have to remember that the Marker was manipulating Issac to get it back to the planet. Most likely the necromorphs were ordered to go there. Or atleast, that's my theory.

My theory is that none of it ever happened and Isaac is just locked up in some ward. The game made no sense since we saw that the necromorphs make corpses while the bat versions made necromorphs. If we are to believe that Isaac wasn't insane from the begining then how did one necromorph manage to necro an entire military ship without a bat thing?

Can you elaborate a little bit? I don't really get what you're driving at. But the Ishimura is definitely not a military vessel and it's safe to say that more than one necromorph was active on the ship.
There's actually a comic that deals with the backstory on youtube.

You ask for spoilers and that is what you get.
During the game your captain ejects a necromorph into space in an escape pod, this pod is picked up by a military vessel where its occupant kills everyone. The ship crashes into the Ishimura andyou board it to find super necromorphs everywhere. Either that single necromorph managed to turn everyone else into necros without a bat or the bats managed to immediately board the ship despite that there was no way in because of the radioactive material. Either way it makes no sense.

Aardvark:

Cool. I'd be willing to buy them if there good.

Well thanks for ruining it for me. I'm not serious. I played Dead Space and thought it was pretty fun. Though I honestly had more fun playing Silent Hill 5. Ummm...yeah. Those sound like gaping plot holes to me. Maybe we would feel sorry for Nicole if Isaac actually talked. What is the fascination with not letting the main character speak? Are we supposed to be its mind? Maybe that's why we never hear Gordon Freeman say, "Damn it! No! You guys do it! I am sick of all this crap!"
Anyway, I didn't really plan on finishing that game and I just read the synopsis on Wikipedia...yup. That's pretty lame.

All of this is based on the assumption that the bats are the only way to change a human into a necromorph. The game's backstory shows that the original necromorphs came from the bodies of deranged colonists who were infected by other means on the planet. Not to mention that the very existence of the necromorphs is at this point quasi-spiritual and unexplained. I don't see why the plot needs to be bundled into a nice little package allowing no speculation in a game that was planned to have a sequel that would expand on the story from the get go.

It is explicitly stated that the Marker was communicating with Isaac, not the Hive Mind. The Marker itself is a sapient entity. The bit where "Nicole" needed protection while she opened the door is easily explained: the door was never locked in the first place. The whole thing was just the Marker manipulating poor Isaac.

As for the military ship: in the intro to the game, a single necromorph is able to take down the two marines accompanying the crew in a matter of seconds. They don't have Isaac's plot armor. The majority of the necros infesting that ship came in from the Ishimura after the first one slaughtered the marines who opened the escape pod (or it opened on its own after docking; kind of stupid, but plausible) and then went through the ventilation ducts to get to the bridge. Cliff racer things come in and start humping corpses left and right.

It's not Shakespeare, but it's a solid (if uninspired) plot with no real holes in it.

I've heard that same thing from a bunch of friends. They enjoyed the game to a certain extent, but felt a bit shafted.

The Marker being the one manipulating Isaac makes more sense but that still doesn't explain the ending where an alleged necromorph Nicole attacks him. This particular necromorph looks to be little more than a banged up corpse, which completely messes with the game's own continuity as EVERY OTHER necromorph in the game is a grotesque mess. While this isn't a plot hole per se I hate it when a game throws out it's own logic only to make some kind of point.

Just to make it clear, I didn't totally dislike Dead Space. The game has extraordinary production values for start. For the first half of the game when you were still encountering new weapons and locations it was a thrill. Then the set pieces started repeating themselves and the surprise "boo!" moments never worked anymore because you could pretty much anticipate at what key moments the baddies would suddenly spawn.

I believe Condemned worked very well in this regard. That game had very little actual fighting. But the fights you were involved with was always so brutal that I was wincing. Also you were always hurting for ammo, a better weapon or a weapon in better condition. You were on your toes for the entire trip in Condemned. Oddly enough these two games endings are very similar, but the one in DS did nothing for me were Condemned raised a lot of questions about the main characters sanity. With Dead Space, as mentioned, it was just a cheap scare that didn't make sense.

Oh, and anyone in this thread complaining about spoilers should probably not have skipped the very first line of my original post: -- spoilers a-plenty --

Me thinks the spoiler warning needs to be over several lines....

To be honest I dont really care if she dies, I care more that I complete storyline.

I still have to wait at least to saturday, since on christmas I realised my Dead Space disk was scratched, dented and even had a crack in it... Damn it EA. Looks like I may not play it before getting back to school... dunno.

Sensenmann:

Fixed.
Call me crazy for thinking that a thread title that includes "ending" would by itself keep away those not wanting spoilers.

Haven't actually had the joy of playing the game since I'm limited to mostly just having to buy games at this point (interesting bit of wisdom, don't let other people rent games on your accounts, it will not end well) but I did watch the ending on youtube, as well as the movie that was supposed to be a prequel type deal that showed how the Ishimura went to hell in the first place. After seeing both, well, I don't think that was Nicole on the ship at the end, looked more like it was the woman who first discovered the marker on the planet before it was cracked.

Basically, and there's spoilers here...

The woman was part of the team that first saw the marker, first reported it and whatnot. Her husband was also a sort of scout/miner. The colony planetside goes to hell, she's in the colony, the husband is out in a shuttle with his buddy when this happens and the two rush back. They run into a colony full of necromorphs, husband finds wife, wife kills self in front of him, he carries lifeless corpse back to shuttle and jets off for the Ishimura, but not before one of the bat things slips into the shuttle and necromorphs her. Husband crashes shuttle into Ishimura shuttle bay, necromorph wife kills him, he gets necroed, she runs off and climbs into the marker somehow. Husband and bat thing go to the ship's morgue where all of the other poor saps that've already killed themselves or been killed as a result of the (I'm guessing) hive mind driving them to produce bodies in preparation. Bat thing goes to work, whole mess of necromorphs make quick work of the ship with what would seem to be only the one bat thing flying around to produce more necromorphs. Doesn't take long for entire ship to be overrun, since by the time they know what's going on, well, it's too late to stop it.

At the end of it all the wife from the begining just stays a banged up looking corpse. Looks a lot like the creature from the end movie of the game.

Did anyone else notice that in the video in which Nicole kills herself, the room she is in looks very similar to the ship you end up on in the last chapter?

Then how come fakey Nicole can die? Why do the Necromorphs attack her if she isn't there? If they're fake Necromorphs, why do they drop real, usable ammo and powerups?

I was always under the impression that the person opening the door was Kendra; she does later comment on how delusional Isaac is, after all.

Gregorus Prime:
As for the military ship: in the intro to the game, a single necromorph is able to take down the two marines accompanying the crew in a matter of seconds. They don't have Isaac's plot armor.

They also don't have the personal infinite-use Stasis devices the military do. How's a single Slasher supposed to take anyone by surprise in super slow motion?

Nope, it's firmly established that the whole ship was under attack before it hit; that's why it hit.

I thought Dead Space was a good game. Sure, it wasn't really scary, but it did have a few moments where I jumped, the atmosphere was chilling, gameplay was above average, and it did have that awesome HUD system. Definitely a game I'll have to play again sometime.

Yeah... I never understood the plot at all.
Here's the plot, from the way I saw it:

"Were on a ship!"
"Holy shit, monsters!"
"Go fix this."
"Go investigate this"
"Go kill this"
"Go play an annoying asteroid minigame"
"Go on this ship"
"GET THE HELL AWAY FROM THAT SHIP"
"Look, a big spinny thing"
"Go move the spinny thing from one end of the ship to the other."
"HAHA! Turns out I'm eveil!"
"URK! I am dead"

*Isaac kills big wormy thing*
*Issac gets pwned by dead chick*

What he said.

That makes even less sense. Oh this big powerful force is manipulating him to get this marker to the planet. Then in it's infinite wisdom decides "heh heh heh watch this I'm gonna make him think the door is locked so it slows him down. And this imaginary locked door will hold everything back as well. I hope he doesn't open it when he thinks it doesn't open otherwise we will be mincemeat."

A possible suggestion for where Isaac needs to defend Nicole as she is opening the door.
Nicole is dead : Fact
Isaac is starting to lose his mind e.g. random messages from nicole on the intercom.: Fact
Isaac is a mute : Fact

Now picture the scene where isaac has to defend nicole from necromorphs. Insert a random, most likely female, member of the crew. Now that person would try to help isaac out in some way, one could think "hey, i can't get to the door over here so i'll open it for you" Now isaac is mute at this point while believing that this new person is nicole in his decaying mental state, so he just nods his head or stands still or whatever he does. The person on the other side then goes "alrighty cover me while i open it". Isaac agrees. Once the door is open and she can't do anything else she could have easily said something like "I'm gonna get out of here while they're gone, good luck". While isaac in his mental state watches as 'nicole' leaves then sets out to go do whatever it was that needed doing

Just a thought

Many of these questions have been answered but a few remain so allow me to sum it up for you.

The Hive mind drove people mad so they'd kill themselves.
The Marker drove them Mad so they'd stop the Hive Mind.
When Isaac arrived the Marker made him see his wife so that he'd do a couple of fetch quests and repair the ship in order to stop the Hive Mind.
The reason those Necros could attack Nichole is because the marker can't intervene directly so it must of animated a corpse and then cast illusion on it so it didn't look all wired and shit. That's just about the only logical explanation I can think of.
On the shuttle you seem to get attacked by a necro which looks like Nichole, according to the developers this isn't a actual necro but just Isaac gone crazy because of the Hive Mind (or just having a shit day) just like the rest of the crew.

The whole idea was 'ohhhh horror!'

This is what I think the, "protect Nicole," thing was all about. She was definitely a hallucination, brought on not by the Marker, by Issac's hysterical desire to see her again. (This theory about Issac hallucinating is backed up by the bit in Chapter 2, when the locker door creaks open.) The door was never locked in the first place, it was only his mind that was keeping him there. Also, what's to say that he didn't hallucinate the necromorphs that attacked her. Another thing that supports this is that at the end, when Issac is trying to get into the shuttle, it is locked, but opens after a few seconds. This could be his realisation that it was not his fault that she died, and that he must survive.
This links in to my second theory, which is that Issac was crazy that whole time. I think that he had watched the whole Nicole video before even approaching the USG Ishimura. He edited it, and made himself forget about it, as the realisation that Nicole was dead would just break him. (Similar to Silent Hill 2.) That hallucination would give Issac the relief of saving Nicole, as he could not accept that she was dead. The crew members from the Kellion, Kendra and Hammond, are real for very little of the game. I think that the whole crew dies on that ship very early on, as you are first separated from them. They continue to appear in hallucinations as symbols for Issac's madness, (Hammond represents Issac's strong will and determination to carry on, Kendra represents Issac's regret and anger at himself for not being able to save Nicole. Even doctor Klein (I think) is representative of Issac's innocence and good-nature, and his SPOILERS***************************************************SPOILERS
death near the end is symbolic of Issac's need to punish himself for not saving Nicole.

Just a thought

I have been thinking about it and maybe it really was Nicole. She really isn't dead as in 6ft under worm food dead. She had enough sense to make it to the escape ship (the only one I might add) when it appears she offed herself in her room. And she didn't attack Issac the moment he got on the ship. So maybe she was able to keep hold of her humanity long enough to help him out. And the others attacked her because they recognized her as as not quite one of them. That she wasn't part of the hive.

I was under the impression that the only one that wanted the marker put back was Isaac, and that the necromorphs and the Hive Mind (I think that was what it was called) never wanted it put back. Also the girl that came to the Ishimura with you was having hallucinations as well, she said she saw her brother which she said was impossible. It seemed to me that the necromorphs had turned the ship into a new home, and that they didn't want the marker to leave.

Well according to the anime prequel the marker repulsed the necromorphs. Although the theory is the marker was somewhat sentient itself. Based on what we know of Issac I don't think he really cared about getting the marker to the planet. His only concern seemed to be Nicole and survival.

I definitely agree that Isaac's primary motive was to find Nicole. And that is pretty interesting I always thought that the Marker was important to the necromorphs as a whole (Now for some reason I am starting to wonder how intelligent the Necromorphs are, in the game they seem like mindless killing machines, but it would be interesting if their intelligence is explored in the sequels.) Is the anime any good? I love the game but I have been wary of the movie. It sounds like it would give some interesting backstory.

I really like your analysis, but in my opinion, you're giving this game WAY more artistic credit than it deserves. I'm almost positive that all of the main characters were real and they died when we saw them "officially" die, and Issac seeing Nicole was nothing more than a hallucination brought on by the marker (you know, as the evil chick at the end explains). This game is as far from creative or artistically significant as you can get - it's a cliched sci-fi game which rips off countless sci-fi movies. Really, an analysis like that is fitting for Silent Hill 2, but Dead Space? No way.

It is the entire story of the ship before you arrive. You will see a few familiar scenes like when the captain bites it. It is gory as hell but not deep in the story dept. if you know what I mean. There is some animated comics that were on XBL before it launched that are the story of the colony (so the prequel to the prequel) but I dunno if you can still access them. Maybe on youtube.
