Dead Space 3 vs Mass Effect 3

Dead Space 3 is out soon but do you still miss shooting things in the face as Commander Shepard?

Dead Space 3 to be powered by Battlefield 3

After DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine has been used in Battlefield 3 and farmed out to other games such as Need for Speed: The Run, there are now rumours that it may also be used in Dead Space 3. Although not announced by EA, rumours abound that it’s happening thanks to job postings at EA’s Visceral studios and DICE’s rendering architect Johan Andersson tweeting that he’s off to visit a whole bunch of Frostbite-powered EA studios, the first one being Montreal where Visceral are based. Of course this is all conjecture but it Frostbite 2 is indeed powering Dead Space 3...

Dead Space 2 release date

The original Dead Space was a unique third person shooter that used the darkness and sudden music cues to great effect.

Dead Space 2 returns next year and promises more spooky happenings as well as another ton of Necromorphs to slay in the...

Dead Space Extraction review

Dead Space was one of my surprise favourite games last year so I’ve been looking forward to Dead Space Extraction on the Wii – a prequel which charts where all the horror on the cracked planet and in the mining vessel the Ishimura began. It’s an on-rails FPS but before you think this is just like Time Crisis or House of the Dead, let me explain to you why it’s very much not. Extraction has a much more considered approach in that there are times where you don’t shoot anything whilst the atmosphere builds as you’re taken for a ride...
