We've mentioned this in news posts already, and it was a no-brainer anyway, but Visceral Games and EA have finally officially revealed they're working on a sequel to 2008's critically acclaimed sci fi survival horror, Dead Space.
Isaac Clarke returns for another heart-pounding adventure, taking the fight to the Necromorphs in this thrilling action-horror experience. New tools to gruesomely slice and dismember the Necromorphs complement Isaac's signature Plasma Cutter, empowering him as he meets new characters, explores epic Zero-G environments, and fights against a relentless necromorph onslaught. Survival isn't the only thing on Isaac's mind in Dead Space 2 Ė this time, he calls the shots.
No release date is mentioned in the press release, but the game is due for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Here's hoping we have a resolution on our need for an R 18+ rating by the time it's released.

Hopefully the PC controls will be better than last time.

Hopefully we have enough time before it is released to get an R 18+ rating.

I was surprised the first Dead Space made it through. It could get pretty 'messy'.

pc controls were ok, but you couldn't disable mouse acceleration. but meh, wasn't supposed to be a supreme control FPS - in some ways the slightly less intuitive controls added to the atmosphere and difficulty.

yeah i had an issue with the PC controls, the mouse movement seemed very floaty or laggy.

Does that work well? I'm considering getting one for all the control-awful PC ports of x360 games.

Uninstalling Dead Space seemed to fix all the problems I had with the game.

game was awesome. controls were near perfect, only problem is as someone pointed out before is that they felt a bit laggy.

didnt the game end with you returning the fragment thingy and killing the hive mind?

Can't wait for this, the first one was awesome. I played on 360, so I have no idea what the controls were like on PC.

Yeah, pretty much all PC games now are made with the 360 control in mind. It doesn't just automatically map the controller correctly, but even the button prompts change to show the 360 buttons on screen. It's pretty handy. Third-person games don't feel right to me with anything other than a gamepad.

iirc the PC version you had to turn off vsync or something to get rid of the input lag. also you had to tweak the sensitivity a bit, but once this was done the game controlled well.

hopefully it won't be an uber cliche POS like the first and i might actually finish it.
