What Lurks in Dead Space?

Published

on

EA's Dead Space!In space no one can hear infected humans ripping off your limbs! Such is the case in the new sci-fi/horror game from EA – Dead Space.

Due to hit stores sometime late 2008, Dead Space is “set in the cold blackness of deep space, the atmosphere is soaked with a feeling of tension, dread and sheer terror. In Dead Space, players step into the role of engineer Isaac Clarke – an ordinary man on a seemingly routine mission to fix the communications systems aboard a deep space mining ship. It is not long before Isaac awakes to a living nightmare when he learns that the ship’s crew has been ravaged by a vicious alien infestation. He must fight through the dead silence and darkness of deep space to stay alive.

By looking at the screens that were leaked to GamesRadar last month it is easy to say this is going to be creepy game. In the absence of other survival horror titles like Resident Evil and Doom, this one looks to be taking the reigns and pulling them hard. The unique character designs and the outstanding graphics should impress even the most hard boiled Halo and Bioshock fan!

EA's Dead Space!Dead Space is set to appear on both the XBOX 360 and Sony’s Playstation 3, but no word yet if it will also be available for PC users. The ESRB has yet to rate the game, but given the projects fast development we’ll probably know how much gore to expect sooner than later. However, if you need more unsettling images and a place to voice your opinions on the game, head on over to the badass official Dead Space site and take a tour of the facility. There you can also join up with the DS community via their forums!

We’ll be brining you much as we get it!

God of War Becomes the Highest Rated PS4 Exclusive On Metacritic

Published

on

If you’ve been paying any attention to the video game press over the last couple of days, you’ll know that God of War has been receiving some truly spectacular reviews. So much so, in fact, that it’s now the highest-rated PlayStation 4 exclusive game on Metacritic of all time, with an astounding score of 95%. The only PS4 games to score equal or higher are Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us, both of which were enhanced ports of previous PS3 releases.

God of War, which was developed by Sony Santa Monica, does away with the Greek mythology setting that was prevalent in the previous games, with Kratos, having destroyed the Olympian gods many years prior, now embarking on a quest with his son Atreus to scatter his wife’s ashes atop a sacred mountain.

Particular points of praise from reviewers were went towards the realistic graphics, the Norse mythological setting, the revamped combat system, the use of a continuous camera shot with no cuts, and the performances of Christopher Judge and Sunny Suljic as Kratos and Atreus. And as you would have come to expect from the franchise by now, the game is also as violent and brutal as it gets, so much so that the ESRB even promised that we’ll be able to tear off enemies’ jaws.

God of War will hit stores on April 20.
