First, we'd like to applaud EA for creating Dead Space -- an absolutely terrific survival horror game that kept PS3 Fanboy writers compelled for days. Kudos to EA for giving PS3 owners access to Obsidian Suit DLC at launch ... for free. We like free things!
Now, the praise can stop. This upcoming batch of DLC for Dead Space is a bit excessive, don't you think? On November 13th, EA will release a whopping 12 different DLC packs. The "Astronaut Pack" and "Pedestrian Pack" simply changes Issac's appearance. However, the "Heavy Damage Pack" and "Military Pack" will offer enhanced weapons that should make going through the Dead Space adventure a bit easier. You can also buy a new weapon, the Steam Punk Force Gun -- you may need it if you're trying to go for the Dead Space Platinum Trophy (Impossible Mode can be pretty rough!).
See the entire list of DLC after the break. To be honest, while we loved Dead Space, we don't plan on going near any of this DLC.
