10 years on, here’s how Dead Space went from horror to action horror in three games

The first Dead Space turned 10 years old last month. It took me a month to get through the first two hours when I first played it. Every time I jumped back in and clumped down one of the USG Ishimura’s dark corridors, a monster would pop out of the vents and I’d jump up, smash the pause button and find an excuse to do…

The 25 Best Horror Games On PC

To compile a list of the 25 best horror games on PC is to look into the void for so long that the void not only starts to look back, but shakes you by the hand and takes you out for coffee. It is to fight with monsters until you become a monster and then go on a European railtrip with the other monsters, and…

EA to close Dead Space studio Visceral, in-development Star Wars game moving to Vancouver

EA have just announced that they'll be "ramping down and closing" Visceral, the studio behind the Dead Space trilogy. Visceral have been working on an untitled Star Wars project, described as an "action-adventure", and Amy Hennig, formerly of Naughty Dog and Crystal Dynamics, moved to the studio in 2014 to work on that project as senior creative director. EA's statement regarding Visceral's closure suggests that…

Have You Played… Dead Space?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Nostalgia is supposed to be about the things of our early years, but recently I've been feeling nostalgic about games released much more recently than my usual rose-tinted diet of Ultima and Daggerfall. I've only gone and started missing Dead Space like it…

Updated: Dead Space Is Isn’t Pining For The Fjords

Update: despite earlier declining to comment, EA have since told Eurogamer that the report is "patently false", while Viceral's UI lead has tweeted that "The reports of our death were greatly exaggerated." Perhaps it would have been better to say that when a whole bunch of people asked the first time? Update 2: EA's Peter Moore has claimed, in comments on GI.biz, that the entire…

The Bonding Of Isaac: Dead Space 3’s Odd Couple Co-Op

Dead Space is famously an Alien-inspired game about lonely survival on a spaceship/station inhabited by otherworldly horrors. No more! Now it's a buddy action move about welding helmeted Isaac grudgingly teaming up with bloodthirsty merc and victim of nominative predeterminism John Carver. They hate each other, but I've a funny feeling they might come to respect and even like each other before the tale is…

Verdict: Dead Space 2

A week back Jim was kind enough to tell us Wot He Thought of Dead Space 2. Compelled by a lack of anything else to do this weekend, John played it too. And when two minds of the RPS hive share content, they must examine. Thus, we Verdict. Below is Jim and John's discussion of the space stomping sequel, in which Jim defends while John…

Dead Space 2 To Install Disability Access

A patch will soon be arriving for Dead Space 2 to make it more accessible to disabled players. It's perhaps not something most of us think about, but for a number of players it's essential that they be able to freely map controls if they're going to be able to play. And Dead Space 2 currently doesn't allow you to set moving forward to the…

Dead Space 2: Severed Not Coming To PC

Time for me to be the badger of bad news. EA has confirmed to The Escapist that the Severed DLC for Dead Space 2, which adds 2 standalone chapters to the game that tell the story of whatever happened to Dead Space: Extraction stars Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock, won't be seeing a PC release. You can chalk that up with the Dead Space: Ignition…

Dragon Space 2 Armour in Dead Age 2

When it was announced that there would be Dragon Age armour in Mass Effect 2, it may have gone crashing through the fourth wall like a confused rhinoceros, but at least the two games came from the same developer. It's bemusing to try to fathom how the two universes might cross over, but we got over it. But for Dragon Age 2 you'll be able…

Eww! Dead Space Multiplayer Trailer Is Gross

Where does a Necromorph keeps its eyes? According to the latest Dead Space 2 multiplayer trailer, about four feet behind its head. See, what I'm doing here is mocking the title, "Through the eyes of a necromorph" in a game viewed from a third-person perspective. Everyone involved now feels incredibly silly, and will probably quit their jobs, lose their families, and become destitute. That's the…

Dead Space 2 Features Screaming, Ghosts

If you click below, you can watch a six minute walkthrough of Dead Space 2's train station level, narrated by executive producer Steve Papoutsis. The environments are certainly looking a lot busier than the original, but Isaac is now also now hallucinating like a man on the wrong side of the 1960s. There's also a breath-taking tunnel flight sequence, which might be silly and simple…

Isaac Mute ‘Un: New Dead Space 2 Trailer

One of my favourite things about the first Dead Space was that Isaac was just this very quiet, practical guy with terrible posture who shouted in disgust whenever bad things happened to him and who wasn't squeamish about stomping the shit out of Necromorphs. A hero after my own heart. With Dead Space 2 he seems to be getting some all-star treatment, becoming this awesome…

The Frighteners: Dead Space 2

They're calling this the lullaby trailer, which means it's soundtracked by a spooky rendition of a children's song. Nothing spookier than that, eh F.E.AR. franchise? Better than being soundtracked by inappropriately shouty rock music, anyway. We've seen a fair bit of Dead Space 2 already, and I think it's fair to say that it looks a good deal more ambitious than the original. Actually, with…

Dead Space 2: Necromorph Gameplay Reveal

Footage from Dead Space 2's new multiplayer beta has come crawling out of the overly large air-ducts of Castle Shotgun. Why did we have those installed again? I forget. Kieron quickly subdued the video it with a pool cue and I've posted it beneath for your viewing pleasure. Finally, we get to see what they're doing with this humans-versus-Necromorphs multiplayer mode without the shield of…

Space Biff: Dead Space 2’s Multiplayer

Blimey, this is a bit more interesting than I was expecting. Dead Space 2's multiplayer is a sort of Left 4 Dead type affair, with multiple visored Isaac characters taking on swarms of the nasty necromorph thingies. It's looking suitably violent and gruesome, with a "coming out of the goddamn walls" aspect that makes these games work. If the team can iron out the flaws…
