Holy crap! Did you buy the Dead Space 2 Collector’s Edition that came with the replica Plasma Cutter? If you did then I demand you take a screwdriver to that thing so you can make it less rubbishy and more awesome.
Some laser geeks have posted a How-To video that describes the steps and parts needed to turn your replica into the real thing. If you can get hold of the parts, and you can follow the steps, then you’ll get a Plasma Cutter replica that can light matches and pop balloons! This will come in incredibly handy when the Necromorphs take over a circus and you’re forced to face-off with Necromorph-clowns and their twisted, undead balloon animals.
