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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
