Living with the constant fear of the plague may now seem like a pleasant memory to Isaac Clarke compared to his current reality — fear compounded by the ceaseless terror of the frozen planet Tau Volantis. Teaming up with merciless soldier John Carver may be his only chance of surviving the dangerous planet and the even deadlier evolved enemies that await him there. Stranded on this barren world, he must face an unending stream of lethal enemies, horrifying avalanches, treacherous ice climbs and the brutal elements of the violent wilderness in order to solve the mysteries of the past and find the solution to the Necromorph plague — a solution that is mankind's last hope.
Plunge into the frozen world of Dead Space 3 as Isaac Clarke, and use your courage, intelligence and skill to navigate the challenges that lurk around every corner. Explore underworld cities, engage in side missions and put Isaac's engineering skills to the ultimate test in order to build the weapons needed to survive. The weight of human survival rests on your shoulders, but you can enlist the help of your friends with the game's new drop-in and drop-out co-op gameplay.

With a massive asteroid hurtling toward the planet, a select few humans have been chosen to inhabit modern-day arks — pods buried deep within the earth's core. You were chosen. You were buried alive. And you rose from the ground to face your worst nightmare. Hordes of mutants killing without a thought, bandit gangs wreaking havoc throughout the already defunct wasteland, a looming Authority seizing maniacal power and holding secrets — this is what remains of humanity. The world as you know it is gone, but if any world is to stand in its place, there's only one person left who can raise it up from the ashes — you. That is, if you can survive the Rage.
Step up to the challenge and climb into the wasteland in a first-person shooter that flings you to the edge of the earth and the brink of extinction. Rage pits you against the odds in a desolate world in which you were selected for survival — just to face death at every turn. To redeem humanity, you must master a massive arsenal of exotic wingsticks, sentry boots, bomb cars and other powerful weapons and fearlessly wage war against the evil forces overtaking your planet. Fire through heart-pounding first-player shooting action, rip through the wasteland in high-octane vehicle chases and turn your car into your most deadly weapon — you have to play dirty if you want to live. Experience the mass decay with every painfully realistic detail with the id Tech 5 engine and Megatexture technology, firing at 60 frames per second to make you feel as if the world has crumbled around you. And when you take the battle online, the devastating action really does stretch around the world. You've survived the apocalypse. Now comes the real battle.

Its a classic...It is a classic....After getting my thrills from Soulcalibur IV, MK vs DC, and Virtua Fighter, playing the new Street Fighter IV was like going BACKWARDS in video game evolution!...Finding a match against someone with a good connection can be a pain, and sometimes the lag is so bad it will take a full second for the game to render a command.

Good tv...All good...They tend to come to your aid like blind lemmings and have total disregard for utilizing common sense in coming to your rescue (i.e.: 2 characters doing covering fire while another takes a reasonable route to assist; instead of 1 AI player after another walks directly in the line of fire and die while you watch helplessly)....The scene where Mad Max shows up and teaches you bullet time brought me to tears, and my mind was blown when Master Chief actually reached out of my tv and slapped 5 with me, then gently brushed my leg with that "hey how you doin" kind of look in his faceplate before blowing up a children's hospital full of super saiyan creeper gouls.
A mysterious and unstoppable force threatens the galaxy, the Master Chief is missing and his loyalty questioned. Experience the most dramatic Halo story to date in a 4-player cooperative epic that spans three worlds. Challenge friends and rivals in new multiplayer modes: Warzone, massive 24-player battles, and Arena, pure 4-vs-4 competitive combat.*
