    A prequel playing as Michael Altman during his discovery and destruction of the marker would be pretty awesome. whether as a full game, or even episodic d/l content. Ive a question in regards to the end of dead space 2. As you approach the marker you come across what appeared to me as unkillable aliens. Are these the necromorpths true form? As for Unity and convergence, sounds wonderful if it was all sunshine and mankinds next step, but i'd think some of the unitologists would maybe have second thoughts about necromorphism since it involves a lot of pain death and raging zomobification.. do they willingly become necromophs?

    I think it's not that they willingly become necromorphs, I think it's the presence of the Marker and its influence on your mind and thoughts that leads an individual towards becoming a necromorph. I'm basing this off of what occurred in Dead Space 2 with the Church of Unitology section where it addressed how people willingly participated in a ritualistic suicide so that the Marker could transform them into necromorphs. As for the invincible necromorphs towards the end, maybe they are the product of convergence. The way they talk about convergence makes it sound like this grand unified being so I feel like you might be on point about that. The prequel idea sounds cool and all, I just wonder if they're going to try and close everything out in this one and just make it a trilogy and that's it. I hope they don't though, there's just so much content here and there's so much that they could do with it.

    If you're talking about the regenerating ones, they are killable. When you break them down into torso only, find a fan, toss them in.

    Technically Isaac didn't destroy the marker in the first Dead Space. He takes it to the plinth type thing, then Kendra appears and takes it away, the Hive Mind comes out and Isaac kills the hive mind, and the planet gets destroyed cause the gravity tethers fail and all the debris from the cracked planet crashes back into the planet. So I guess the marker probably does get destroyed, in a roundabout way, but not directly by Isaac.

    True. Roundabout's all that counts :P

    I'm sure if it came down to legal issues and the finger had to be pointed at someone, Isaac blew up the Marker.

    Well that was a good refresher and extra information. But about Altman would he not be affected because he is really intelligent. I'm sure I heard that in the labs of dead space 2. The reason why other people are affected quick and Issac fought it off. He is a freakin engineer that can hardwire anything.
