There's one thing even more terrifying than Necromorphs, and that's the high price of video games. Thankfully, a pair of deals have made purchasing Dead Space 3 a little less frightening. Groupon is offering either the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version for $42.99. Meanwhile, if you want to save a l...

Dead Space 3 boldly went where the previous Dead Space had gone before: No. 1 in the UK all-formats charts. We know, shock horror (ho ho ho), but more interesting is that the third main entry in the series scored 26.6 percent less UK launch sales than its predecessor. 65 percent of those sales were...

Dead Space 3 is excellent, meaning I didn't enjoy very much of it. The torture is self-inflicted, and I only increased the severity by playing the game without company, without light and without those regular breaks they used to warn you about in the manual (ask your parents). The inclusion of co-o...

With Kinect, Dead Space 3 allows players to say "more than 40 intuitive voice commands," rather than pressing all those pesky buttons.

EA revealed nearly two million people have already downloaded the Dead Space 3 demo, at least 10 percent more than the total demo downloads for Dead Space 2. That's a whole lot of space engineers testing out fresh alien dismemberment to a Phil Collins backdrop. Dead Space 3 pre-order figures are al...

Dead Space 3 will chill the spines of many a space engineer when it launches into the retail atmosphere on February 5. Not that a wee bit of cold scares Isaac Clarke, as demonstrated by him taking off his helmet at sub-zero temperatures just so he can give the camera some fierceness. ...

Within this exclusive bundle lies an 8-inch Marker statue, an aluminum data pad, a water bottle that looks like a ...

Late last year we discovered that Dead Space 3's Kinect voice commands were best used during couch co-op, but here's a trailer in which EA is showing off some other commands. The Kinect functionality will allow players to "find objective," use stasis or "reload." That all sounds clever, but was t...

We grew up in a household where swearing wasn't exactly commonplace, which made playing the particularly terrifying games of our collective youths somewhat of a challenge: Sometimes you just need to bust out some language, especially when the going gets tough and your courage gets going.
