The Dead Space series was riding high after the release of Dead Space 2 in 2011, having become one of the most highly-rated horror series of all time. Even today, people still praise Dead Space 2 as an incredible horror game. Unfortunately, Dead Space 3 was poorly received. What happened? How did Dead Space go from…
I love Quick Time Events. There, I said it. Don't worry; I'm aware that bad QTEs exist. After all, gamers often state categorically that they "love video games" knowing full well that bad games exist. Similarly, I'm fond of Quick Time Events despite the fact that many examples are quite awful. Quite a lot of them…
"Is Dead Space dead?", I asked Steve Papoutsis at the end of an interview about Battlefield: Hardline - the game Visceral is now making in lieu of a Dead Space 4. Here's what Hardline's executive producer said back to me, in what some people call 'an answer':
Compared to the $400 Titanfall Titan, Threezero's new $190 Dead Space 3 Isaac Clarke figure is a downright bargain. Check out it's light-up features, super-articulation, multiple weapons, and swappable head below:
Well, I mean, it is! The tiny scale, the little blinking screen (which actually goes through a boot sequence) and that popping "hello!" as it opens up, it's about as cute as Dead Space is ever going to get.

The Thing and Halloween director John Carpenter wants to adapt the first Dead Space into a (live action) movie. "You have these people coming onto an abandoned, shut-down space ship and they have to start it up and something's on board. It's just great stuff," he told Game Informer. [via VideoGamer]
By "working," let's be clear: This laser is not powerful enough to sever a necromorph's limbs—not unless it is heavily sedated, if not already not-undead. It'll still burn wood and, well, I wouldn't stare directly at it.

I'm having a hard time remembering Dead Space 3.
One of my biggest problems with Dead Space 3 is that it is utterly lacking in the hallucination department. What happened to all those twisted, freaky things I witnessed in the first two titles?
Dead Space 3 presented a pretty radical departure from the first two games in the sci-fi horror series. Too many fetch quests and co-operative play made Isaac Clarke's third outing against the Necromorphs feel less scary and atmospheric than DS1 & DS2. But, most of all, longtime Dead Space fans missed the freaky…

I beat Dead Space 1.
When it comes right down to it, Dead Space 3 is a game about standing in a corner and blasting aliens into bloody bits. I've been playing through the opening hours of the game, and despite recognizing the various problems mentioned in some reviews (including Tina's less-than-glowing review), I have to say that after…
