The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Dead Space... Space is far from dead and you will be dead in space if for the slightest moment you get dumb. The game centers around Isaac Clarke, an engineer and his crew members, on what seems like a routine repair mission. To get the telecoms system of the USS Ishimura (a gigantic Planet Cracker) online. Unknown to them are the terrors that lie in wait for them on board the Ishimura. From the get go you, things get dicey and you're made to begin a race for your life. Danger can spring from any direction at anytime. So being vigilant at all times increases your chances of survival. The game is played out in 12 chapters. In each chapter you do what you do best; fix everything (by your lonesome!) And try to stay alive. I will give major credits for the effort that was put into the story telling. Since the main protagonist does not talk, you are given instructions via the R.I.G suit's video com feature. As you progress on your journey; audio, video and text logs can be picked up to shed some light on the sinister plot. Always keep in mind to use your means of defense wisely as you can find yourself in a 'fatal blunder'. The main juicy goodness that brings Dead Space to a new level of survival is the atmosphere. You are in a constant state of paranoia and the smallest flicker of light or movement of shadow will be enough to get your hair standing. Here is a little spoiler for the audiance; starting chapter 10, that's where the real crap hits the fan! Dead Space is addictive and compelling, eventhough the objectives (doing what you do best) can get rather repetitive. Hope you enjoy game as much as I am... Stay alive!
