42. Standing Still by BrokenTeapot 42. Standing Still by BrokenTeapot
This is just a weird idea I came up with when I was supposed to be doing my homework. The HUD in Dead Space can get a little confusing, and one has to wonder what Isaac's reaction would be when he sees messages like, "Hold down LB to run", "Press RT to shoot", and so on... I promise for my next comic, I'll make something that's ACTUALLY FUNNY! Please comment, thank you. ^_^

It appears to be his logo/signature, if you're referring to what appears to be a broken teapot.

Yeah it happened to me yesterday. I actually went to my friend's house to play Xbox 360 for the first time. I played Dead Space 2. He told me "Press LB to run" and I was like "What the hell is a LB?" :D

But I have ended it on PC anyways. It was a GREAT game.

This remains me of "Legend of Zelda; Majora's Mask", as Link heard all those control from Tatl for first time and didn't understand what she said. That was at beginning, right after he became Deku.

yeah i used to think that ps2 controlers were simpler than a computer keyboard as a control but now i realise, more buttons means less combinations and a mouse is way easier to aim with. issac: press E why not just kick it in the face to escape?

I agree with this, I've played games and wondered where is that button combo I'm supose to press now. Especially if I haven't played the game in a while and come back to it. It always seems to happen when there is impending doom too.

Love your comics.

Another example was in Super Paper Mario on several occasions someone would go "Press the A button to do this"and then Mario would "talk" and ask what the A button was.

The same thing goes for Star Fox: Lylat Wars.

"Hold A to charge your laser."

"To barrel roll, press Z or R twice."

And there is at least one example in The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, in which the person who buys bottled items from you tells you to set the item to a C-direction to sell it to him.
