Dead Space 2 in development

The sequel to one of the best shooters of 2008 has started development, with the heavy lifting set to start in the next few months.

Visceral Games has a genuine top-tier franchise on their hands with Dead Space. The first was our Xbox 360 Game of the Year in 2008, and the Wii spin-off, Dead Space Extraction, just earned a 5/5 score and an Editor's Choice from reviews editor Tae Kim. Now comes word, that a second game will soon begin production.

Joystiq has discovered a help wanted ad from Visceral Games on Linkedin that states "The game is in the later stages of pre-production, ready for production in the next few months, with many of the navigational and combat mechanics in place." The position being filled is for "Lead Combat & Controls Designer," which may signify even more innovation in the game's insane limb-slaying combat.

The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 were the only consoles mentioned in the job listing. We will update you with more information about the next chapter of the Dead Space saga as we learn more.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
