Celebrating 'necromorphic' alien dismemberment with verve, Visceral Games today announced Dead Space 2, sequel to last year's space-based survival horror game about slicing renegades from John Carpenter's The Thing into giblets.

As Isaac ("Asimov Arthur C.") Clarke, you'll get to be proactive for a change, "taking the fight to the Necromorphs" wielding "new tools to gruesomely slice and dismember" all those legions of spasmodic creepy-crawly aliens.

"We're thrilled to jump back into the series, making the next chapter in Isaac's journey," said Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer of Dead Space 2 in the press release. "The infection continues to spread throughout space and our hero Isaac Clarke is the only person able to contain it. There are still loads of necromorphs that need killing!"

"In Dead Space 2, not everything is exactly as it seems. Expect plot twists that will surprise you and a huge cast of twisted, disgusting monsters that are sure to scare the daylights out of you."

Sounds like there may be a special control element in play as well, though all EA's dishing is that "this time [you] call the shots."

Look for it on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC sometime next year.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
