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…

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…

Dead Space 3’s Microtransactions Exploited Away Already

Here's what's great about reality: people are great at breaking stupid stuff. So as Dead Space 3 launched yesterday in the Americas, people smarter than I had already figured out a glitch in the game to acquire all the items EA had hoped you'd pay for. Game Front have posted a video explaining how, which I've diligently included below.

Dead Spin: Yes, The PC Deserves A Better Dead Space 3

During an interview with Shack News, Dead Space 3 producer Steve Papoutsis expressed confusion about why PC players are disappointed at the lack of any extra frills in our version of the game. "It's confusing to me that this question even comes up," he says. It's by no means any less important to us; it gets a lot of attention. The PC is a very…

Why Dead Space 3’s Co-Op Could Actually Be Scary

Dead Space 3 has co-op. You may not have heard - unless, you know, you are any human being on this entire planet with functioning ears or eyes. You've probably used your mouth to voice distaste for Isaac's new foul-mouthed best pal Carver, too. After all, it's much harder to be afraid of the dark when someone's whispering sweet, soothing nothings into your heavily armored…

Feature: Just because he severs you, doesn't mean he likes you

Hands On: Dead Space 3

Are the open spaces of a frozen planet inherently less conducive to fear than the claustrophobic confines of a creaking interstellar haunted house, blood-stained metal dungeon or sprawling catacomb? Does being followed around by an angry man called Carver tend to cut through an atmosphere of exhilaration and dread somewhat? These were the foremost questions running through my mind as I sat down to play…

Engineer We Go Again: Dead Space 3’s Universal Ammo

Below you will find twenty minutes of Dead Space 3 footage, interspersed with executive producer Steve Papoutsis saying 'super', 'awesome' and 'superawesome'. It confirms my fear that the game won't contain very much fear, although there is a bit with a giant drill that sends limbs flying through the air like patriotic streamers and champagne corks at a Jubilee street party. Hurrah, Clarke and Carver…

E3 Day Zero: When Game Violence Becomes Vile

One of the most striking scenes of yesterday's E3 press conference gauntlet didn't take place on a stage or a screen. It wasn't rehearsed or pre-planned, and it most certainly wasn't expected. I sat in a jam-packed arena-sized auditorium and watched a game demo unfold on a screen bigger than my hometown. OK, that wasn't the surprising part. I'd been doing that all day. This…

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…

Quite The Thing: Dead Space Teases “New Chapter”

I love how kitschy pulp sci-fi some aspects of Dead Space are. Sure, its exterior may be grimdark and gore-spattered, but this (fairly impressive) digital comic focuses around "Earthgov" and a planet called "Uxor." That, to my mind, is admirably silly. Granted, that's hardly the only influence poking through Visceral's exosuited sleeve here. An overbearingly icy planet? Parasitic monsters crawling from every crevice? A poor,…
