Musing Mondays is a weekly mem hosted by Mizb at Should Be Reading.
This week’s musing asks…
I'm really excited about picking up Dead Space: Martyr by B. K. Evenson after I finish tackling Falling Under by Gwen Hayes. I won it from the publisher through goodreads a little more then a week ago and I just recently got it in the mail. From what little information I know about the book its based on the video game Dead Space franchise."What book(s) are you most excited about right now? (it can either be something you’re currently reading, or something you just bought, or a book/books that are soon to be published)."
The guys at GamePro had this hilarious post about the game which helped me learn a great deal more about it.
GamePro. At the very bottom you come across this lovely little entry.
It wasn't violent enough.Dead Space Executive Producer Glen Schofield has been quoted as saying the game wasn't as violent as he would have liked. Which makes us very wary of ever being alone in a room with him (10 Incredible Facts about the Dead Space Franchise).
I can't wait to start reading this book now. The last game based series I read was StarCraft and that was a few years ago. This one is already proving to be more interesting information wise, but I still couldn't help but think that it looks a lot like the Halo Reach game. I don't play video games (please don't hurt me) but I do like watching my friends play. There is nothing quite as entertaining as watching someone get frustrated, throwing controllers, and cursing out virtual characters.
