One of the best parts about a Dead Space game is getting a good look at the incredibly demented creatures that are going to be destroying you. Ripping you limb from limb, and playing around with your giblets. Every creature is straight from the depths of your nightmares, and they keep getting better and better. If you head past the break you can get an inside look at some of the Necros you’ll be seeing in Dead Space 3 along with descriptions of them. Dead Space 3 is so close I can feel my space madness approaching. February 5th on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
Have you ever wondered how those wacky Unitologists could continue their zealous fight for rebirth through the Marker when all around them their friends are being transformed into pairs of murderous crazy legs with waggly tentacles protruding from their midsections? I don’t know about you, but as soon as that started happening I would’ve started weighing the pros and cons of converting to a religion with a lower death rate. Today, Penny Arcade took on Dead Space 3 by asking that same question. It’s pretty great. You should most definitely head on over to their site and check it out.
The Dead Space series has always had some kick ass outfits for Isaac. Well let’s just say that Mass Effect 3 and Dead Space 3 have been fooling around behind closed doors. The outcome is the magical N7 Armor for Isaac and Carver in Dead Space 3. How do you get it? Easy. As long as you have yourself a Mass Effect 3 game save, and you purchase yourself some Dead Space 3 and BAM. That easy. Check out the video below to get a look at the suits. February 5th! So close!
If you signed up for early access to the Dead Space 3 demo, you’re probably enjoying some hands-on time with it right now. Everyone else has to wait until January 22 to get their anxious hands on the game’s bloody, Necromorph spanking co-op goodness. But don’t worry, I have ten codes for the Xbox Live demo to give away. Since I want to get these in your hands as soon as possible, this contest is going to be a quick one. All I want you to do is comment telling me which of the game’s two leads would win in a brawl: Isaac Clarke or John Carver? No plasma cutters or telemetry spikes, I’m talking full-on fisticuffs. I also want to know why you chose who you did. Now get to work, because I’m picking the winners on Friday, 1/18 at 12pm PST.
If you like sub machine guns and Dead Space, Game Stop is where you want to go to pre order Dead Space 3. I personally hate Game Stop but I won’t let that stop you from getting your hands on the Game Stop exclusive EG-900 SMG. Check out the trailer below to get a taste of the machine gun in action. And don’t forget, Dead Space 3 releases February 5th!
The Dead Space 3 Dev Team Edition is one of the few you can get either with or without the game. It fetches a high price tag either way. With the game you’re looking at $160.00, and without the game you’re looking at $100.00. They don’t skimp on the goodies though. If you head past the break you can check out a video and the list of all the items you get in the Dev Team Edition. And yeah, there’s a lot. Dead Space 3 is coming, February 5th, PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
OMG JK but seriously, Kinectimals, lame name. How about a Kinect exclusive for Dead Space called Kinectomorphs? Moving on. Past the break you can check out a video for Dead Space 3 that shows you how cool the Kinect can actually be in game. There are a number of basic game play commands but what makes things a lot smoother are the multiplayer commands. “Give partner ammo” or “give partner stasis” for instance. Check it out past the break, February is closing in!
Cosplay can be a wonderful thing. If I were creative enough or had any discernible talent I’d love to be a cosplayer. I’ve seen a fair share of Dead Space cosplay over the years, but none have been as fun to look at as Kevin, who you can see in the supremely badass armor of Isaac Clarke (if we want to get really nerdy I could say he’s wearing the Security Suit from Dead Space 2), and Léa Charvin, who portrays Ellie Langford in many of the shots. Check them out after the break!
Recently announced by E.A. and the magical Visceral Games is a playable demo for Dead Space 3. It’s going to be coming to the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade on January 22nd. Xbox 360 users however can get access to the demo a week early just by signing up over at DeadSpace.com. It’s said you’ll be able to try the single player, the co-op, and use the Kinect voice commands in the demo. Dead Space 3 is a game I will definitely be buying, so the demo might get shoved aside so I don’t spoil any of the campaign for my 1st play through. Anyone else?
Kotobukiya’s ARTFX Statue Line will soon include gaming’s resident Necromorph slaying badass Isaac Clarke, and he looks real good. The attention to detail in this figure is incredible, they even placed LEDs in the visor, RIG, and locator. Between this and the gorgeous Silent Hill figures Toymunkey Studios was at Comic-Con back in July I don’t think my wallet can keep up with my new-found love for terrifyingly awesome video game statues. The Isaac Clarke statue stands at just a little over 12 inches tall and comes with that bloodied display base you can see after the break.
“Better with Kinect” is becoming a surprisingly popular slogan. Dead Space 3 is going to be one of those games with Kinect support. Also Destructoid is reporting you have 2 avenues of pre ordering the game that will get you some hot bonus action. Pre order at GameStop to get the EG-900 Sub Machine Gun, and Amazon gives you the Enervator. It sounds a bit more brutal than the EG-900 and I must admit I’m a way bigger Amazon fan. Head past the break for a new trailer showing you 2 ways to play the game.
You thought you were safe, didn’t you? You thought because the busy holiday reaching its end and the year’s remaining games have finally made their way to store shelves that you could start saving up your hard-earned money again. What you failed to realize is this was only the beginning. Over the last few years, the months following the holiday season have become just as busy, and often busier, than the holiday season itself. Early 2013 is the new crazy, and boy does it look wonderful. Head past the break for a complete rundown of the games you can expect to see draining your wallet when 2013 rolls around.
A crazy awesome feature announced in Dead Space 3 is what I like to call the hallucination system. Newcomer John Carver joins Issac and is experiencing his first bouts of hallucinating. SPACE MADNESS! And the cool thing about the co-op is that Issac won’t be seeing all the things John is seeing due to his space madness. So each player will get a totally different experience. You can see all that goodness in the video past the break. You can also get a lot of your co-op fears, Lost Planet fears and more crushed and stomped out with some reassurance that the Dead Space series will always be aiming to make you shit out your spine. (Trademark Adam Dodd). Dead Space 3 released February 5th on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
Our friend lil’ Adam Dodd is of course sworn to secrecy or else he could be strung up in the Visceral Games offices. But what could it be? Honestly what I think I would want more than anything is a 4 player survival/horde mode. I can’t flippin get enough of those. A lot of people on Dead Space 3′s official FACEBOOK are speculating a special/collectors edition. The news will be announced tomorrow, but what do you guys think it will be?
I’ve dedicated my life, or the last couple minutes of it anyway, to scouring the internet in search of the most anticipated horror games coming out next year. Last night we discussed how great (or terrible, depending on who you are) this year has been for horror fans, so for those of you who aren’t satisfied with the many horror games of 2012, I dedicate this list to you.
The Verge has posted an in-depth article, including video, on their visit to Dead Space composer Jason Graves‘ home studio. The video shows Graves talking about many of the instruments he uses, the random objects that he creates unsettling sounds with (the chicken wire on a trash can lid that is bowed is especially awesome in my book), as well as the technology that backs up his entire system. If you’re into creepy sounds and audio recording at all, this is a very worthwhile video to watch and article to read. Check it out below! READ MORE
Put your Dead Space 3 fears to rest friends. For though Dead Space 3 is throwing in some things you may dislike, it’s also staying true to its horror roots. In the video below you can check out a walkthrough of a ship known as the “Eudora” where Isaac faces many fears he has before. That doesn’t make me any less nervous. I screamed my way through the first game and again through the second. I see no reason I wouldn’t be screaming my way through this game. Dead Space 3 will be released on February 5th for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
Does Dead Space 3 look awesome? OF COURSE. Am I a little nervous about it? Definitely. Will that stop me from buying it? Hellz no. If you pre-order the game you can get yourself some goodies that will help you early on in your game. Head past the break for info about all the pre-order stuff you can get, some screens, and a new trailer from Gamescom. Even cooler than that? You can craft your own weapons in Dead Space 3. But it’s not duct taping shit together, it’s making actual weapons the way you want them. Plasma cutter with a flamtehrower on the bottom? Fuck yeah. Head past the break to check out a video all about it.
This is good news for geeks like me who love our video game soundtracks, as it’s been confirmed that series composer Jason Graves will be returning to score the upcoming Dead Space 3. Graves crafted the fantastic scores for every other game in the series, including Extraction, and since they’ve all been sufficiently terrifying, I think it’s safe to assume the trend will continue with the next installment. My love for video game soundtracks runs deep, and I’m always looking for some new tunes to add to my horror playlist that still mostly consists of Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka’s work. In case your memory’s a little fuzzy, I’ve included one of my favorite tracks from Dead Space 2 after the break. Turn off the lights, hit play, close your eyes, and enjoy.
I hope you weren’t too big a fan of the Left 4 Dead style multiplayer mode introduced in Dead Space 2, because that idea has been completely scrapped in its sequel. Dead Space 3 will not be pitting player controlled humans against player controlled Necromorphs, instead, we’ll have the optional co-op that’s been the focal point of pretty much every demonstration of the game so far. Despite its flaws, I enjoyed the multiplayer in Dead Space 2, but I’d much rather have a meaty co-op story to dive into when it releases in February. What about you? Oh, and you should definitely head past the break for a fresh batch of creepy new screenshots.
So far, my favorite enemy in the Dead Space series has been the Stalker. They aren’t the most disturbing Necromorph of the bunch–I’ll leave title to the Crawlers (the explosive babies), but they’re without a doubt the most unnerving to fight. The first few encounters with the Stalker packs in Dead Space 2 were intense because they actually communicated with each other. They would flank you, trap you, trick you, and if you didn’t outsmart them, they would most definitely kill you and drag you into their lair to defile your mutilated corpse again and again and again. However, that could soon change in Dead Space 3 now that the Feeders have been introduced. Get to know them after the jump.
In this edition of Aural Pleasures, Adam and Jonny keep things nice and short. The dynamic duo begin by chatting about a woman in South Korea who got more than she asked for whilst eating squid (hint: babies…tons of ‘em). Then they move onto E3 and the discuss the games presented there and dwell upon what the soundtracks might sound like, focusing on “Beyond Two Souls,” “Dead Space 3,” and “Resident Evil 6.” The boys then cap it all off, as usual, with some recommendations.
Tune in and enjoy the absurdity of Aural Pleasures after the break, or you can subscribe via iTunes by searching “Bloody Disgusting. READ MORE
EA just released twenty minutes of official gameplay for the upcoming Dead Space 3 that includes a lot of half-people and necromorphs jumping out in front of Isaac from the snow. I really hope there isn’t too much of that. What’s most interesting about this video, which you can find after the break, is it shows how the game works alone and in co-op. We get to see the opening sequence done solo, then part of it done with another player in the game. There are extra story elements you’ll get when you play with a friend, but the co-op is entirely optional. Check it out and tell me what you think.
Adam and TJ are back! Again! And they’re here to stay. (We know you missed their sexy sexy voices.) This weeks episode of Dead Pixels is almost all about this year’s E3 convention.
“Resident Evil 6,” “Dead Space 3″ and much, much more are discussed. Adam is left feeling unfulfilled about the entire convention, while TJ feels everything was quite good. (Fight!) But, as usual, the boys get sidetracked and start talking about TV and movies, and Adam drops a couple spoilers as it’s becoming one of his favorite past times. (What a dick.)
