Tycho and I finished Dead Space 2 last week and I was really impressed with the game. Overall I didn’t feel like it was as scary as the first one but that changed this weekend. Our dryer stopped venting correctly and it fell on me to determine the problem. This meant exploring the crawl space below our house, something I had never had to do before. I removed the panel, slid into this dark space full of pipes and cables with my flashlight and immediately regretted the eight hours of survival horror I had just completed.
I started shinning my light around down there, certain that it would fall on a rotting corpse but instead I found the dryer vent hanging down and unconnected to anything. I could see where it was supposed to fit into the vent on the side of the house and it looked like a job I could actually fix. Then I heard something scurry in the dark corner of the crawl space. I sat there holding my breath for a second and heard it again. Slowly I started to swing my light in that direction and then stopped. Did I really want to see what was over there? Sure it was probably a mouse but what if it wasn’t? What if it was a dead body, reanimated by a mysterious alien artifact and hungry for flesh?
better to just back out and call a professional.
