The mostly accurate lore of Dead Space

Before you play Dead Space 3, you'll probably want to get caught up on the lore. Now, there are any number of ways you could do that--replay the first two games, head to Wikipedia, delve into Wikia, and so on. However, might we suggest watching the below video instead? In it, you will find a (mostly accurate) dramatic reenactment of all your favorite events from the first two games, be it The Sprawl being torn asunder or Isaac Clarke escaping in a spaceship. And before you ask--yes, that is a dry-erase marker; no, swords aren't canon; and yes, that is pantyhose over her head. Enjoy!
