I am so looking forward to this game! I'm surprised it's coming out so soon! The second game, for those of you that don't know, came out January of last year. For a sequel to come out so soon is awesome.
For those of you unaware of what Dead Space is about, it's a series of deadly survival/horror games that take indirect references from the Alien series as well as some elements from 2001 and just clash them together into one big horror rampage. You play as an engineer who is called to salvage a ship. Something horrible has gone wrong and the crew is slaughtered by a race of beings know as Necromorphs; not to be confused with Xenomorphs (Alien). You are the only survivor and it is up to you to figure out the secret of these beings and how to stop them.
The third game, set to hit shelves in February next year, will be the first co-op version of the game. I recommend you guys play the two games. You will get a kick out of them!
