Take a Gander at 20 Minutes of Dead Space 3 Gameplay

Gears of war

We’d hoped this 20 minute gameplay demonstration of Dead Space 3 would reveal some of the slower pacing that was absent at E3. Sadly it doesn’t. While there’s clearly some great shooting and set-pieces on display here, the tense atmosphere of the original Dead Space appears to have got lost like the mind of protagonist Isaac...

Speaking with CVG, EA Labels gaffer Frank Gibeau explained that the delay was due to...

Advanced assault

EA just can’t seem to keep a secret this year. If it wasn’t enough that Battlefield 3 Premium was already leaked, the publisher’s now gone and uploaded the DLC’s trailer prematurely. Similarly to Call of Duty: Elite, Battlefield 3’s premium tier will grant you early access to all of the game’s DLC packs. In addition,...
