Veronica is so not a fan of survival horror. That's why the Qore team sent her to cover Dead Space 2 because nothing is more fun than watching your host get creeped out by just the idea of Necromorphs. DS2 Art Director Ian Milham dissects the gory details behind their ever-evolving technique to find new ways to shock and horrify...
140w ago - Producer Rich Briggs has announced today that Dead Space Ignition hits PSN tomorrow, and confirmed it's free for those who pre-order Dead Space 2.
To quote: Dead Space Ignition will be available for download starting tomorrow, and it will be completely free for anyone who pre-orders Dead Space 2.
This makes the launch even more exciting for us, and I'm happy to have the chance to tell you more about it.
When we created Dead Space we wanted to establish a living, breathing, and terrifying universe. As we built this universe, we used the comic series and animated feature to expand the core story from the game. We're taking this to the next level with Dead Space Ignition.
We're excited about Dead Space Ignition because it brings the franchise to downloadable arcade games for the very first time, with a completely new experience. By combining interactive comic storytelling with three unique arcade games, we can tell a new Dead Space story in a fast-paced, accessible manner.
Before Isaac Clarke begins his adventure on The Sprawl in Dead Space 2, a Necromorph outbreak occurs, and Dead Space Ignition lets you witness the horror first-hand. And you'll be able to choose your own adventure along the way, as Ignition offers four unique endings.
144w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some PlayStation Move hands-on details today with Dead Space Extraction, as follows:
Playing Dead Space: Extraction on PlayStation Move makes for a fine demonstration of the motion controller's precision and versatility.
Aiming is quick and accurate with virtually no discernible lag: small, subtle movements of your wrists translate precisely on-screen, giving you the feeling of aiming with a computer mouse.
One nice touch: twisting your wrist 90 degrees to the left or right will flip your Plasma Cutter's firing plane from horizontal to vertical, which can help you find the ideal angle for snipping off arms, legs, tentacles, and other protrusions of the vile Necromorphs. There are other weapons, of course, including a Rivet Gun and a Force Gun, and the "wrist twist" will activate their alternate fire modes as well.
Using the PlayStation Move, you fire your current weapon with the T button (aka the trigger). Pressing the Move button activates a quick Telekinesis blast, which you can use to pick up ammo and items hidden throughout the environments -- or use to hurl objects at the marauding Necromorphs.
It's your choice! Melee attacks are gesture based: you press and hold Circle, then rapidly...
144w ago - Video Game Producer Scott Probst has unveiled some details on Dead Space 2 for PS3 alongside a few fresh multiplayer screens today.
To quote: The Dead Space 2 team is excited to bring you something for the first time in the history of the franchise -- the ability to strategically dismember your friends in our all new multiplayer feature!
That's right, Dead Space 2 will offer its own unique take on multiplayer, which is intensely gruesome and completely grounded in the Dead Space universe and fiction.
Dead Space 2 will feature four-versus-four gameplay with an objective based multiplayer, across five unique locations throughout the Sprawl.
Not only will players have the chance to play as the Sprawl Security Team, but they will have a chance to see the other side of the coin and play as the evil Necromorph forces.
Players will be able to play as four different Necromorph characters, each with its own unique gameplay style: The Pack, The Lurker, The Spitter, and the newly famous Puker.
In DS2 MP, the Sprawl Security Team will have specific, unique objectives across five different maps which will be focused on eradicating the Necromorph...
