I'm kinda started to get excited about Dead Space
as the plot of the game looks good and the early reports from people who have played the game have been pretty positive. The game features strategic dismemberment for the enemies which means you can't just shoot something and hope it dies right away but rather that you have to cripple creatures and then finish them off. It sounds cool but I wonder how long that feeling lasts before it gets old and boring.
Here's the new animated comic from the game that plus in some of the back story for the game.
