The classic Dead Space series is seriously terrifying deep-space horror at its best. EA is currently making sure to make good use of its classics. Recently, they also remastered Mass Effect with great success. Now, EA will remake the first part of the classic trilogy.
Developer Visceral Games worked on the first game all the way back in 2008. It was a great looking game with a lot of cool mechanics. I was always a a big fan of the HUD that was organically built into your suit. If you recall, the energy bar was marked by lights on the back of the suit. The best mechanic of all though was undoubtedly the zero gravity walks you would have to do in order to reach other parts of the ship. The sound was sucked out of the room. This would allow creatures to sneak up and get you in the dark and soundless nightmarescape.
The last of the three Dead Space games came out in 2017. It wasn’t the exactly the same as the first two, but it was a decent time. EA now plans to go back and remake the first game for next gen consoles. It will also take advantage of the Frostbite Engine.
No word on a release date, but it will be coming to Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Megan Fox Set to Play Nitara in ‘Mortal Kombat 1’
Mortal Kombat 1 is shaping up to be an all-new experience that looks to transform the series into something new to fans. One of the surprises has been the casting of celebrities as the characters in the game. For one Jean Claude Van Damme is going to play Johnny Cage. Now, we know that Megan Fox is set to play Nitara in the game.
“She comes from this weird realm, she is a type of vampire creature,” Fox said. “She’s evil but she’s also good. She’s trying to save her people. I really like her. She’s a vampire which obviously resonates for whatever reason. It’s cool to be in the game, you know? Because I’m not really just voicing it, it’ll be like she’s kind of me.”
Fox grew up playing Mortal Kombat and is completely in shock that she is able to play a character from the game she was such a big fan of.
Nitara is a vampire character and after watching Jennifer’s Body it really does make for a nice crossover for Fox.
Fox will play Nitara in Mortal Kombat 1 when it releases on September 19.
‘Hellboy Web of Wyrd’ Trailer Bring Comic Book to Life
Mike Mignola’s Hellboy has a long history of deeply textured stories via the amazing Dark Horse Comic books. Now, Mignola’s comics are being brought to life via Hellboy Web of Wyrd. Good Shepard Entertainment has done a brilliant job of turning those pages into eye-popping levels.
The synopsis for Hellboy Web of Wyrd goes like this:
Like the comics, Hellboy Web of Wyrd sends Hellboy on a series of vastly different and wholly unique adventures: all tied to the mysterious legacy of The Butterfly House. When an agent of the B.P.R.D. is sent on a reconnaissance mission to the mansion and promptly goes missing, it’s up to you – Hellboy – and your team of Bureau agents to find your missing colleague and uncover the secrets of The Butterfly House. Chain together hard-hitting melee and ranged attacks to fight a diverse array of increasingly nightmarish enemies in this incredible new entry in the Hellboy universe.
The incredible-looking action brawler is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on October 4.
‘RoboCop: Rogue City’ Trailer Brings Back Peter Weller to Play Murphy
RoboCop is one of the all-time best. The full-throttle satire is the film that keeps on giving. Director, Paul Verhoeven gave us one of the very best that the 80s had to offer. That is why it’s so great to see that actor Peter Weller is back to play RoboCop. It’s also very cool that the game borrows from the film by bringing TV commercials into the action in order to add some of its very own humor and satire.
Teyon’s RoboCop looks to be a wall-to-wall shoot ’em up. Literally, every screen has blood spurting from headshots or from other appendages flying off.
The synopsis for RoboCop: Rogue City breaks down like this:
The city of Detroit has been hit by a series of crimes, and a new enemy is threatening the public order. Your investigation leads you right into the heart of a shadowy project in an original story that takes place between RoboCop 2 and 3. Explore iconic locations and meet familiar faces from the world of RoboCop.
RoboCop: Rogue City is set to drop in September. With no exact date given, it is entirely likely that the game gets pushed back. Fingers crossed it stays on track. Expect it to arrive on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC.
