What better way to spend Thanksgiving than to kill some aliens in the deep, dark reaches of space? A demo for Dead Space
is going to hi the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace on November 25th. Cyril enjoyed
the game and I thought it was pretty good with the brief time I had with it. Having a completely HUD-less display for a third person action game is pretty cool and there's some really good scare moments that will make you jump.
