Dead Space is free if you're willing to put up with Origin photo
Dead Space is free if you're willing to put up with Origin
by Jordan Devore

In an effort to get you to finally install Origin, Electronic Arts has begun a new On the House promotion in which "full games, expansions, and more" can be downloaded for free.

The first selection is one those who can deal with horror games ought to play: Dead Space.

Frankly, I'm not sure what else would convince someone to play this for the first time in 2014 other than it being given away for free. While Visceral lost its momentum with Dead Space 3, the two prior games are absolutely worth playing for genre fans -- they hold up well to this day.

Among the Sleep still looks pretty creepy

When I was a toddler, I don't think I was afraid of a lot of things. Maybe just clowns or pooping my nappy. Actually, my cousin's Star Wars figure case that was shaped like Darth Vader's head was scary too. Waking up to find...

Roam the wastelands with your dog in Ashen Rift

I'm a sucker for a post-apocalyptic wasteland (I grew up in Glasgow, go figure), so Ashen Rift: A man and his dog looks to be the type of game I'd like to play. Set after a cataclysmic event, a lone survivor heads to the mid...

Eerie action game Betrayer releasing March 24

Betrayer is a good name for a game, I think. And it looks like a real cool game, too. Maybe some of you can attest to that, as it's been playable through Early Access for a few months. Now it's ready for prime time, done and...

Curve's four game PlayStation bundle is a great deal

Looking for something to play on your PS3 or Vita? Maybe both? Curve Studios is bundling four good games at the budget price of $15. $13.49 for PlayStation Plus members. All four games are Cross Buy as well, meaning you get access to the PS3 and Vita versions. Not bad. The four titles in question are Proteus, Thomas Was Alone, Lone Survivor, and Stealth Inc.
