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 quit...

Jimquisition: Downloadable Discontent
by Jim Sterling

You don't have to hate downloadable content to avoid ever buying the stuff. Even heartfelt fans of the concept can be thoroughly turned off, and it's all thanks to the idiots trying to sell it.

Your old pal Jim loves DLC, as an idea, but never buys it these days because of alienating business tactics and companies trying to push their damn luck.

Let us discuss the ways in which a publisher can stop even a willing customer from buying its wares.

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 ...

Game music on guitar like you've never heard before

Top honors for this month's Note Worthy go to a new guitar duo, The Altered Beasts, who you may recognize as the guitar players from the best game music cover band out there, The OneUps. The two team up for their debut album, Transfiguration, bringing smooth and laid-back guitar arrangements of some of the best tracks from across gaming. This one is definitely a must-have.

We've also got the powerful BioShock Infinite and the dark fantasy Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, along with Austin Wintory's Monaco, Star Command, and Soul Sacrifice, among others. Check out below and enjoy streaming music samples while you read!

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 ...

Replica Dead Space Plasma Cutter will burn your face off

YouTuber AnselmoFanZero built himself his very own replica Dead Space Plasma Cutter. Oh yeah, the gun can actually burn stuff, as demonstrated in his video. As for the gun itself, it weighs about 4.4 pounds, took about 200 hours to build, and features 1,500-milliwatt burning blue lasers.

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...
