Ride to Hell in this amazing Dead Space motorcycle helmet

I'm pretty sure I'd never ride a motorcycle, but if I had this custom made Dead Space helmet I might have to reconsider.  Crafted by Xtreme Kreations, the attention to detail on this one of a kind piece is quite ridiculous. I...

Jimquisition: Fee to Pay

It's time to talk about why "optional" microtransactions in games aren't really optional, and why they're especially gruesome in games we already paid for at retail. The rise of "free to play" elements in games that are not free is going t...

EA pushing forward with Dead Space movie

The idea of a Dead Space film has been thrown around for several years now, but news out of Comic-Con suggests EA could be more seriously pushing the property towards becoming a film franchise. Maybe Dead Space 3's "disappointing" sales hav...

John Carpenter wants to direct a Dead Space film

Dead Space 3 is the latest game to have officially failed

It had co-op and cover-based shooting, but Electronic Arts' flailing attempts to make Dead Space 3 "appeal to a wider audience" apparently failed. Visceral's latest game now joins Tomb Raider, Hitman: Absolution and Resident Evil 6 as the n...

EA: SimCity sales 'solid,' Crysis and Dead Space were not

Electronic Arts held an investors' call today, and one of the talking points was the performance of some of its biggest properties. Unfortunately, some of the information that was divulged was sort of disheartening. EA appears pleased by th...

This Dead Space fan movie blew me away

We might never get around to seeing a live-action Dead Space movie on the big screen but I'm not sure if a film coming out of Hollywood would nail the aesthetic of the games as well as this short, fan-made film. It's just under t...

Hey gang! I'm back from wherever I was, and I've brought with me today's Destructoid Show! Big news today with the first trailer for Saints Row IV, which looks as nutty as you'd expect it to. That'll be shown off at PAX East in a few weeks....

Dead Space 3: Awakened is a return to survival horror

Overall, I really enjoyed Dead Space 3. There were points that it dragged on, but a lot of the stuff near the end in those last few levels made it up for me. Still, Dead Space 2 is my favorite of the franchise largely because of the dementi...
