The Dead Space official website has released a graphic novel short of a potential new character in the Dead Space universe. This may give us some hints into potential story lines and characters of the highly anticipated Dead Space 3.
Released today is a post apocalyptic survival adventure game called “I am alive”. After the earth suffers a series of catastrophic natural disasters it plunges into total collapse, and a lone man finds himself on the search for his family. Released today (march 7th) via the xbox live arcade and playstation networks, this game revolves heavily on survival tactics and climbing around the endlessly dilapidated wastelands. From what i understand I am alive is not really an action game but does feature some action game mechanics. You can utilize many different weapons that you come across in the wasteland, but scarcity makes using bullets or arrows a tough decision. Many of the other humans you come across in the wasteland may not want to talk to you and can shun you if you rub them the wrong way. Pulling out a gun may cause the people around you to put up their hands in fear, or strategically surround you in retaliation. The game heavily involves smart decision making, because you never know who you are going to come across. The over world exploration looks like a great time. Climbing downed skyscrapers, swinging from pipes, running through mashed up trains; it reminds me so much of prince of persia but set in a post apocalyptic environment. I am super excited to get my hands on this one! I am alive looks like a survival master piece and looks to add a new flavor to the post apocalyptic genre! Check out the trailer!
