SM Cybezone and Data Blitz' EA Arena Featuring Dead Space 2 Launch Weekend Game Break Experience

Over the weekend yours truly attended the Cyberzone and Data Bltz' Electronic Arts Arena featuring the Philippine launch of Dead Space 2 in Cyberzone, SM North Edsa. Although I already have a good idea of what to expect on Dead Space 2 being a gamer myself, nothing beats the real thing. This is why I've traveled all the way from my beloved hometown here in Cavite to have a first hand experience playing the phenomenal survival horror title, Dead Space 2.

It was a Sunday which only means one thing, no traffic. But even so, I left Cavite early to cover more stuff in the SM Cyberzone event. I arrived early and was able to try out a fifteen-minute gameplay of each EA featured games available in the event without much competition. The games include NBA Jam for the Nintendo Wii, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for the Sony Playstation 3, and Dead Space 2 which has its own Plystation and Xbox 360 booth. I was looking for EA Sports Active 2 but I guess it wasn't able to make the event. I was hoping to try out some Wii or Kinect motion action, but I guess the big three EA titles are more than enough.

I first tried Dead Space 2 fifteen minute game play for the Xbox 360 which was just a real big tease if you ask me. Fifteen minuet won't be enough to fully experience the sheer horrific awesomeness of a game like dead Space 2, but it is a pretty good way to convince its testers to purchase the game themselves which will eventually happen to me. First thing's first though, I need to have my hand on the original Dead Space before purchasing the second one.

I then tried out NBA Jam for the Nintendo Wii. The first minute was familiarization to the waggling controls the Wii became famous and infamous about. I am not a fan of the Wii nun-chuck controls but I have to admit that the Wii motion control slowly grows on you, thanks to the enjoyable cartoon-y presentation of NBA Jam. Playing NBA Jam reminded of a game with a similar name back in Sega Genesis days.

After getting my stamp on Dead Space (Xbox 360), NBA Jam (Wii) and all of the other games. Yes, beautiful booth babes stamps on your arm after every game play to avoid repetitive play and give opportunity to those who haven't experienced the EA Arena titles.

I then proceeded to the Dead Space 2 Playstation 3 booth and yes I just can't get enough of Dead Space. This time I take control of the fully armored Isaac as I am instructed o learns hacking machines and the stasis field skill which was frustrating because I wasn't really familiar with the controls... that is what anyone gets for picking up and playing other people's game. Last but definitely, not the least is Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for the Playstation 3 and Windows which was visually stunning and beyond realistic... okay I am obviously exaggerating on the last one but check this out and you'll be the judge:
