That's awesome. I still prefer 8 bit though.
YES YES YES. This will actually be the first time in a long long while that I rush to my mailbox and skip to the cover story. I need a refresher course on the original though. It was everything a horror game should be. January can't come soon enough
Wow, that is gorgeous.

I'm absolutely ecstatic about this game. Can't wait to read the cover story. Thanks! ;D
ooooo, shiny cover
I loved the first Dead Space - a truly terrifying experience, due both to the excellent gameplay design and the rock-solid, engaging sci-fi story. I was playing the game home alone one night last winter, when I heard a strange noise in the kitchen over the sounds from the TV. It was a hard pattering sound, at first not particularly loud or alarming, but when I finally sat up and took notice, it increased in volume - it sounded like blood dripping down from the ceiling. I was petrified for a moment, but then I went to investigate - my goddamn neighbor's washing machine had overflowed, sending filthy brown water dripping through the ceiling and along the walls in my kitchen. I guess it was better than a necromorph attack, but not by much.
On a side note, wouldn't this mark the second time Dead Space has landed a spot on your guys' cover story?
awesome cover,i love that it go's over the back to.
I really need to play the first one now.
How much do artists hate you guys now that they have to do a two-page spread instead of a 1 page cover art?
The bigwigs at EA must just be skating in saliva right now. Great cover. Really great cover.
Wow.. That's gorgeous!
