Dead Space is exactly what I want a next-gen John Carpenter's The Thing game to be, though with more people being tied to chairs and forced to give blood samples. Of course, a great nerve-wracking game needs an equally terrifying sequel, so the good lads at Visceral Games gave us another taste with Dead Space 2. Harold Goldberg got his hands-on the latest demo, which lucky Comic-Conners might be able to try for themselves if they're sneaky about it. Here's what he found:
"For the three people I saw play the third person survival horror demo, The Puker was too much for them. They died miserably before finishing the level. So did I, when I was attacked by two Pukers. I did get one in the head before it got too close. I watched that head roll away on the floor, a brief moment of satisfaction before my demise."
