    EA also announced a Dead Space 3 Limited Edition will be available to preorder .​

    February doesn't often have a ton of game releases, which means the game will have less competition to worry about.

    I guess you could say EA is taking advantage of the dead space.

    Looks like Dead Space 3 will be part of a cold war.

    That could seriously impact sales, and the last thing the game needs is an icy reception.

    It's good to know that EA isn't leaving the franchise on ice.

    I'm just glad to see a horror franchise succeed. Consumers usually give them the cold shoulder.

    The game seems rather solid, it's good to know they're staying frosty on their development.

    The developers better deliver, though. I wouldn't want their assets frozen.

    I know not a lot of people were pleased with Dead Space 2 but there's still a diehard fanbase from the first game. Looks like the developers are walking on thin ice for this one.

    The game looks like a lot of fun, but a lack of scary for sure. So bright and snowy, looks kind of like Lost Planet to me.

    The developers have been a little overworked. Well, you know what they say: Snow rest for the wicked.

    Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be very true to the rest of the Dead Space series. Definitely not the best ice breaker for newcomers.

    I've heard this game will be less scary than the previous. But it looks a good game anyway

    I wouldn't be surprised if the game got savaged by fans over the co-op features. They could drop the Metacritic user rating to absolute zero.

    I haven't been able to get into the Dead Space series yet, for some reason I just keep putting it on ice.

    You know guys, it's been fun, but maybe it's time we put the puns to rest. This whole thread has really snowballed out of control.

    THIS GAME IS SO COOL.

    Just getting the obvious pun out of the way.

    You know how it is with these threads, once the first pun is posted, it's just a slippery slope. Like an icy slope.
