Due to the fact that we aren't even able to cover nearly as many movies as we would ideally like to, we usually steer clear of covering computer games. Dead Space however is a different issue.
Since the Resident Evil series so hopelessly lost its way and Silent Hill just, well stopped having any good games, there was a definite hole left in the world of horror gaming. A hole which came some way to being filled by EA games with the rather wonderful Dead Space which was exhilirating, creepy and downright terrifying in equal measure.
We were very happy to read on Bloody Disgusting this morning that a sequel has been confirmed to this distinctly unpleasant game;
“We’re thrilled to jump back into the series, making the next chapter in Isaac’s journey,” said Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer of Dead Space 2. “The infection continues to spread throughout space and our hero Isaac Clarke is the only person able to contain it. There are still loads of Necromorphs that need killing. In Dead Space 2, not everything is exactly as it seems. Expect plot twists that willsurprise you and a huge cast of twisted, disgusting monsters that are sure to scare the daylights out of you.” - From Game Informer magazine.
