REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Dead Space 4 Reportedly Canceled Because DS3 Failed To Reach Sales Targets [Update: EA Says It's "False"]

Posted on Tuesday, March 5 @ 07:49:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

[UPDATE]: Gamasutra has been informed by EA that this report is "patently false."

[Original Story]: Pre-production on Dead Space 4 has been canceled, if a recent report proves to be true. According to VideoGamer, an unnamed source with inside information on the project told the outlet that because Dead Space 3 didn't reach the sales targets EA had set in place, the fourth game was scrapped.

The report goes on to add that Visceral Montreal was told about the cancelation last month alongside the announcement of EA's plans to restructure. Not only that but the source claims that Dead Space 3 "was almost canceled" during development, and EA told Visceral to make the game more action-heavy to reach a wider audience.

The publisher was expecting the game to sell somewhere around the 5 million mark and apparently that goal was not reached. Keep in mind that EA has yet to confirm any of this, so take this report with a grain of salt for the time being. That said, are you sad to see the Dead Space franchise possibly go? Let us know in the comments below.
