Rumor: Isaac gets a mean new friend in Dead Space 3

A new report has revealed that Dead Space protagonist Isaac Clarke is going to be even less sane than usual in the not-quite-confirmed Dead Space 3. He's getting a new personality, while keeping the old one, and his two halves aren't going to be friends. 

Isaac's secondary personality, currently referred to as Shadow Isaac, is going to be an unpleasant chap who revels in reminding Isaac about his failures. He'll appear as a secondary character, and will engage in a number of verbal jousts with the hero. 

The old "split personality" premise is a hackneyed one, but it's one of my favorite tropes, so I'm quite looking forward to seeing what Visceral does. I hope it factors into the gameplay somehow, with Shadow Isaac vying for physical control. Whatever happens, I'm excited to see it. Dead Space is my jam.
