Dead Space: how to fix the centrifuge

The Dead Space remake is a mostly faithful recreation of the survival horror title everyone has known and loved for years, but a few of its areas have been reworked to be less frustrating or more interesting. Such is the case with the centrifuge area in Chapter 3: Course Correction, which asks you to do essentially the same thing as you did in the 2008 original — except with a bit more intensity and flair. Still, it’s easy to overlook the solution to this early-game puzzle, as it asks you to use some powers you may not have spent much time with yet. In this brief guide, we’ll tell you how to fix the centrifuge.

How to fix the centrifuge in Dead Space

The centrifuge is located in a large circular room, and you’ll be tasked with reattaching two generator modules to fix it. You’ll likely first notice that the generator modules are rapidly spinning, and you may even notice that they’re sporting a bright icon indicating that you can use your kinesis on them. However, trying to do so will cause them to be rejected due to the aforementioned spinning.

To solve this problem, approach one of the generator modules and fire your stasis at the tip to slow the spinning. Immediately after, use your kinesis to drag the module into the centrifuge to lock it in. Repeat this process with the second module. When you’ve made sure both are connected – and killed any necromorphs that may be bothering you in the area – glide over to the control panel on the walkway nearby and use it to restart the centrifuge. Doing so will complete this segment of your mission.

The Waterbending technique is a Mythric rarity item, but it's surprisingly common throughout the map if you're thoroughly exploring. It can be found as floor loot or in any type of chest, including Olympus Chests and Underworld Chests. You're likely to even find one in Supply Drops, too.

All upcoming PS5 games: 2024 and beyond
Eve kneeling with her sword.

The PlayStation 5 has been out for some time now, and its reception has been mostly positive. It includes lots of quality-of-life improvements over its predecessor, the PlayStation 4, such as faster load times, a solid-state drive (SSD) instead of a regular hard disk drive (HDD), and an improved controller in the form of the new DualSense. However, a console is only as good as the games available on it, and thankfully, the PS5 has you covered on that front as well.

While the machine already has a worthy library of great PS5 games, there are even more to look forward to, with some releasing as soon as this month, while others are still years away. In the video game world, it's not uncommon to be aware of games that are still several years out from release. It's also normal for a new game to be revealed and launched within just a couple of months. In this comprehensive list, we'll go through the major PS5 releases scheduled for 2023 and speculate on future games.

PS5 Pro: news, rumored release date, price, and specs
A PS5 standing on a table, with purple lights around it.

Rumors are running rampant about a supposed PlayStation 5 Pro, or PS5 Pro for short. Just like we got a mid-generation upgrade with the PS4 Pro last console cycle, many are expecting PlayStation to release an incrementally more powerful machine the bridge the gap between the launch unit and an eventual PlayStation 6. Leaks have been coming out from some fairly credible sources with a lot of juicy and very specific details about what a hypothetical PS5 Pro could look like. As credible as these sources may be, we do still need to take everything we see with a grain of salt until Sony officially confirms this system even exists. Until then, here are all the rumors out there we could pull together regarding the PS5 Pro.
Rumored release window

A constant release window that all leaks have pointed to is sometime in Fall of 2024. That's right around the corner, probably in the September through November range, meaning we should be getting an official announcement on the console if that is indeed the plan. Jeff Grub went so far as to specifically say it would be released in September as well. The speculation is that Sony wants the console out in time for, or ahead of, the launch of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto 6 to encourage sales for the best performance on what will no doubt be the biggest game of the year, if not the generation.
There have been no leaks about how much the PS5 Pro will cost, but it is safe to assume it will cost more than the current models. How much more? We speculate at least a $100 bump in price to $600 or more.
