Dead Space 1 & 2 only £2.49 each at Steam

Todays Steam 'Daily Deal' has both Dead Space and Dead Space 2 drop 75% to only £2.49 each (there is also the double pack at £4.99, but well I will let you do the math).

"Only the Dead Survive.

A massive deep-space mining ship goes dark after unearthing a strange artifact on a distant planet. Engineer Isaac Clarke embarks on the repair mission, only to uncover a nightmarish blood bath — the ship's crew horribly slaughtered and infected by alien scourge. Now Isaac is cut off, trapped, and engaged in a desperate fight for survival.

John Carpenter Wants to Make a Dead Space Movie

"I would love to make Dead Space, I'll tell you that right now. That one is ready made."

Those are the words spoken by one of cinema's most respected and most successful horror movie directors, John Carpenter, in an interview with Game Informer [reported by Videogamer]. He's the man behind the Halloween series, The Fog and The Thing. He's also had success with nail-biting tension and action in films like Assault on Precinct 13 and Escape From New York.

Carpenter also said, "The first game was more - I guess it was like Alien - but not quite. It was a little different than that." See, he can even see where it started to go wrong!

Impulse Driven Halloween Sale Roundup

Impulse Driven (Gamestop by any other name) are currently running a bit of a Halloween blowout, featuring a number of scary games brought down to some impressive price points. Indeed, I started writing up about five or six deals in tandem... before noticing that the ever-observant gamestraderjames has already rounded them up at HotUKDeals. Awesome, if embarrassing.

So, without further ado, here are the links to what we consider to be the best of the bunch.

It's likely that some of these games will be reduced closer to the 31st on other sites, but if you want to get in early, now might be the best time to do so.

EA: "Feedback" Suggests Gamers Too Scared To Play Dead Space 1 & 2 Alone

Wondering why Dead Space 3 has shifted tone somewhat to chuck in a co-op mode? Well apparently it's because people were too scared to play the first two games on their own.

Yep, that's right. Visceral made Dead Space and its sequel just a bit too scary.

Dead Space Dev Revises Gears Criticism, Comments Pulled From EA Blog

Dead Space story producer, Chuck Beaver, hit the headlines at the end of last week, when he wrote on the EA Blog that Gears of War contained "atrocious, offensive violations of story basics", and had "the worst writing in games". Since then it would appear that Beaver has rescinded said comments, with the post in question having been removed from the blog, and a statement issued.

Game of the Year Awards 2011 | Best Mobile Game

Mobile games are every bit as relevant, as important and frequently as good as traditional PC or home console games... so don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Oh, and don't you dare tell anyone that they're not "real games." For shame. The rise of iOS and Android has allowed countless Independent developers and triple-A colossi to compete on a level playing field; giving rise to an entirely new ecosystem of gaming excellence.

As resident critic for Mobot.net, I've been inundated with fantastic mobile and tablet titles over the last twelve months. Choosing a shortlist has been an absolute nightmare, so I'd invite you to get involved and tell us all what you've been playing this year!

10: Allied Star Police

Game of the Year Awards 2011 | Best Mobile Game

Ten year-old Owain Weinert was diagnosed with Leukemia last year, but thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation, he was able to realise his dream of creating a videogame with casual giants PopCap. Impressively, Owain showed incredible natural talent in game design and development - taking the helm of what turned out to be an polished and addictive action/strategy game that would have been worth paying good money for.

A class act from all involved, and proof that videogames can and should be a force for good.

9: SQUIDS

Game of the Year Awards 2011 | Best Mobile Game

SQUIDS feels like a quality DS title crunched down onto a handset and slapped with an unbelievably low price tag. It blends RPG mechanics with billiards; giving you control over a team of arthropods that you'll fling into enemies and manoeuvre around the maps with all the skills of a pool hall shark. Eyepopping graphical prowess, massive replayability and adorable art design make this a force to be reckoned with.

Report: Dead Space FPS In The Offing?

Dead Space 3 Still Alive Despite Near-Death Experience

Dead Space 2 was a thoroughly enjoyable romp, and common business sense would tell you that its critical acclaim guarantees the franchise a third outing. However, a new insider report from Kotaku alleges that Dead Space 3 was almost cancelled - and EA are working on an FPS based in the Dead Space universe. It's a big claim, and we've got the megaton info below.

We recently reported that Sledgehammer Games' prototype Call Of Duty title, now shelved to allow them to collaborate on Modern Warfare 3, was "pretty compelling"... but boss Glen Schofield has now spoken out to reveal some more details about what might have been. Apparently their third-person action adventure project "had a lot of atmosphere like Dead Space" and was set in an alternate era to the rest of the series.

Dead Space | £2.99 | Game | PC

If you're a survival-horror fan who's found the latest run of Resident Evil titles have failed to impress, you might want to check out Dead Space, EA's attempt at snatching the crown from Capcom's slackening grip. It's a fantastic little title; equal parts Event Horizon and The Thing, with a little dash of Alien for good measure. It's genuinely scary, and features some fantastically realized beasties. It's £2.99 over at Game on the PC. Get on it.

The original Dead Space is a thing of utter beauty. It's essentially a hybrid of Silent Hill and System Shock - and introduced the world to the joys of Tactical Dismemberment (which, frankly, should need no introduction). GAME are currently charging £2.99 for the download, which is significantly cheaper than a physical copy and even much more competitive than Direct2Drive's daily sale.

Dead Space | £4.80 With Voucher Code | HMV | PC

The original Dead Space is arguably one of the scariest games to have released in recent years, and certainly provides a more traditional horror experience than its action-packed sequel. It hits the sweet spot between providing powerful weaponry and extreme vulnerability, and was our first look at the innovative tactical dismemberment concept that forces players to make split second decisions in the heat of combat. We also preferred Isaac when he didn't crack wise. Just saying.

We've occasionally seen Dead Space cheaper thanks to Steam deals, but for now, HMV's 20OFFHMV voucher code provides the cheapest way of getting one of this generation's standout titles.
