RUMOR: Dead Space 2 to Feature Necromorph vs Soldiers Multiplayer

  It's been known for a while that Dead Space 2 would incorporate multiplayer. But exactly what form that multiplayer would take has been the subject of some speculation. GameStop's annual conference earlier this week apparently saw EA spilling some details about the game. There are also some further details about pre-order bonuses which have been confirmed. Find out those details after the jump. Read More


Dead Space Ignition is a Downloadable "Comic Adventure"

Not the funny kind, either. The announcement hinted at in yesterday's Dead Space 2 teaser image has been revealed to be the downloadable "comic adventure" game Dead Space Ignition, a prequel to the upcoming sequel for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. Unfortunately, this is much less exciting than my initial guesses of vehicular necromorph-slaying and/or multiplayer details, but for now it will have to do. While Ignition won't exactly bridge the gap between Dead Space and its sequel, it does tell the story of event on the Sprawl- the game's space station setting, nestled on the fragments of Saturn's moon Titan- "hours before engineer Isaac Clarke begins his adventure." If you define an adventure as hours upon hours of gruesome, mentally taxing zombie dismemberment, that is. Hit the jump for more details. Read More


Dead Space 2 "Ignition" Image Hints at Upcoming Announcement

Dead Space 2 fans have, over the last several months, been treated to some of the most interesting game marketing in recent memory. The ink blots, mysterious packages and cryptic trailer that have come to light have all hinted that something is seriously wrong with protagonist Isaac Clark, whether physically, psychologically or both. Now that some hearty gameplay footage has been devoured by fans and media alike, though, it's likely that Visceral will be revealing more and more about the game's new features. Cue the above image, which showed up on the Dead Space Facebook page today. "If you look closely you might find that there's a hint hidden in here about a big announcement we'll be making this week. Let the guessing begin!" reads the image's caption. That sounds like a challenge to us- let the guessing begin, indeed. *Cracks knuckles* Hit the jump for some really, really good guesses.

Nintendo Reveals First- and Third-Party Holiday Lineup

Nintendo has released the planned publishing schedule as it stands for the Wii and Nintendo DS/DSi, from both themselves and their third-parties. A lot of definite dates are not set in, instead referenced as "Fall," "Holiday," or "November," for example, but nonetheless serves to give us an idea of what the coming months will bring. "This extensive lineup will keep players busy throughout the fall and into 2010," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Shoppers know that Nintendo offers fun for everyone in the household." Nintendo also mentions the upcoming black Wii Remote, Nunchuk, and MotionPlus as being available "this holiday season," though they don't get any more specific than that. Hit the jump for the full press release and list of games that will become available. Read More


The Games That Don't Install Well on NXE, and How Much Room It Takes for Those That Do

One of the most hyped features (somewhere after Netflix and Avatars) of the New Xbox Experience is the ability to install games to the Xbox 360's hard drive. However, as Halo 3 has taught us, it's not quite a perfect procedure. In fact, it would seem that there is a small number of titles which don't really see any improvement when installed, thanks to the way the developers designed them. According to Destructoid, these titles are Big Bumpin', College Hoops 2k7, Pocket Bike Racers, Sneak King, Crackdown, Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, and Quake II from the Quake IV Bonus Disc (according to NeoGAF). Or, to put it in a different perspective, it's the three Burger King promo games, an out-of-date basketball game, a game most people bought just to get into the Halo 3 beta, and a game most people probably don't want anyone else knowing they own, anyway. Takes a bit of the sting out of it, I figure. So now we know which ones don't work. But of those that do work, how much space will they take up? This is a question that's no doubt on the minds of many... or at least, however many bought a 360 with a 20GB hard drive. Fortunately, Sean has compiled a list over at NeoGAF which answers that very question, along with a few notes here and there about the reduction in load times. However, he notes "I can't possibly verify all of these sizes/notes, just going off of what people tell me. If there's an error please correct it and be nice about it." For your Kombo Konvenience, the list is posted right after the kut... er, cut. Whew, that was close. Read More
