After the flaccid and failed MK vs. DC, it's good to see the creators of one of the single most controversial and violent gaming franchises ever is back on its bloody no holds barred track. A track that leads straight to a god of war for PlayStation 3 owners.
It's quite clear from last night's 2010 Spike Video Game Awards that black and white horror can still terrify and the Old West NEVER gets old.
Guillermo del Toro is one of our generation's greatest and most prolific filmmakers. His eye for terror and mayhem is rarely matched, and when news broke that he will be turning his eye to video games, we were we more than stoked.
With just ten days remaining until the Dead Space 2 demo is available for download, EA Games has released the extended "Sprawl Trailer" featuring Isaac battling his way through the Necromorph-infested space station. If you thought he was in a state of emergency before, you ain't seen nothing yet! Check it out below, and be sure to download the demo on December 21st.
"Shambles" is truly the operative word here, as in "state of total disorder". In Pet Sematary Jud Crandall taught us that sometimes dead is better. And while we love everything zombie here at Dread Central, in the case of this latest iPhone app, it appears as if dead is definitely better on a console.
We are just over a month away from the release of EA's highly anticipated horror title Dead Space 2, and to celebrate the game's upcoming arrival, we have a new trailer emergency for you to dig on! Download the demo on December 21st!
And it's in video game form! What? You thought there was actually something rock solid about the new movie to report?!? Are you mad? God forbid that ever happens.
Even though Dead Rising 2 kicked a copious amount of ass, one thing missing was the protagonist from the original game, Frank West. I mean, after all he went through at the mall, it's kind of impossible not to long for another round of zombie killing mayhem with the guy. Capcom, bless its heart, has listened and is now ready to deliver. From the Press Release:

In a world in which scantily clad chicks cos-play to the delight of teens across the country and people are caught jacking off to dancing night elves in World of Warcraft, is it any wonder that a virtual babe is making it to the pages of an adult magazine?
