Yup, Visceral brought back the foam finger gun for Dead Space 3. Kind of was hoping for something different this time, but it's still a pretty badass weapon. Like before, it's pretty much a one-hit kill weapon, and Isaac wil...



One of the elements of classic horror is that when the horrible thing you are dreading finally happens, it happens in a way far more gruesome than you expect. Visceral Games got this part right so many times in its Dead Space...

In a moment of madness, and due to having more money than sense, I ended up purchasing the Dead Space 3 Dev Team Edition. I didn't mean to do it, it just ... kind of happened. Unable to change the past, the package arrived t...

Phil Collins gets a lot of hate, and I don't get it. He's a good man and his songs aren't bad, damn it!  In any case, Visceral has decided that "In The Air Tonight" (or at least a cover version) is a suitable bit of bac...



Visceral Games has justified the controversial microtransaction system in Dead Space 3 by claiming mobile gamers expect them now. Well, that's a totally reasonable ... wait, what? "There’s a lot of players out there, es...

This isn't the first time Electronic Arts-published games have seen crossover items, and it will almost certainly not be the last. Those who have played Mass Effect 3 and still have the save file to prove it need only buy a ...



Dead Space may be my favorite new IP of this generation. I love its story, its universe, and its stylish delivery of science fiction horror that draws from two of my favorite movies of all time, Aliens and Event Horizon. That...

The latest look at Dead Space 3 features the creative director and the senior audio artist as they walk us through Isaac on the Eudora spaceship. The footage starts off very intense, as Isaac has to put on a spacesuit before...



Originally I thought that the weapon crafting system in Dead Space 3 was going to just be a case of slapping two guns together to make a new weapon. It's actually far more advanced than that, as there's a deep level of custom...



Did you not think you'd get a Dead Space 3 limited edition? Oh, how naive you are. Yes, one is coming, and it gives players first access to two "bundles" planned for Visceral's action-horror sequel. DLC bundles, that is. Lot...



During its gamescom press conference, Electronic Arts revealed a brand new system coming to Dead Space 3 -- a full weapon crafting system that allows for flexible customization of Isaac Clarke's armaments. Want a rivet gun wi...



I got to go hands-on with Dead Space 3 again, this time playing the section that was shown off in the video above from the E3 demonstration.

So yeah, Dead Space 3 is sounding pretty awesome right about now with a new world to explore, bigger bosses and apparently a focus on freedom. Arguably the most interesting addition to the franchise is the dro...



Oh dear. It's never a good sign to me when a publisher states plans to make a game appeal to a "broad" audience, because it usually means one thing -- stripping away whatever made the game unique in the first place, and plugg...



Dead Space 3 is one of my more anticipated sequels of the year, but I wasn't fortunate enough to get to see it at E3 this year. Tara Long had better luck and brought us this interview with the title's International Productio...
