When EA first launched its Origin service back in June 2011, the system was intended to be something of a competitor to Steam (Valve's long-running digital distribution platform) with one important change: it was only for EA games. It didn't have the best of starts and poorly engendered itself to many PC gamers by making the service mandatory in order to play any new releases since its launch.

EA took a risk making Dead Space 3 a co-op affair - and for all intents and purposes - we found it a resounding success of how you make a co-op game without sacrificing the single player experience. But the game ends with a few questions left hanging, so it was inevitable that some DLC would be arriving. Andrew and I have played through the content , called Dead Space 3: Awakened, and feel the need to weigh in. Fair warning - there's going to be some minor spoilers here from Dead Space 3's main campaign. If you haven't finished it you may not want to proceed.

Dead Space 3 was a solid co-op experience, though it may not have been the frightening one that many had hoped it could be.  We had known well before launch that a new add-on campaign was in the works for the game, but today we have all the gory details of it.  It's called Dead Space 3: Awakened and it's a $9.99 piece of premium DLC that takes place after the events of the game.  We recently went hands on with the DLC and came back with some impressions of the much creepier and darker content you'll find.  There may be some minor spoilers ahead.

Amazon is running an all videogame Gold Box event today.  The centerpiece item is EA's Dead Space 3 for only $39.99 on your platform of choice - Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or PC.  It's a game we quite enjoyed for both single player and its two player online co-op.  Despite it being a little action heavy, we feel it fits the series quite well.  You can always check out our Dead Space 3 Co-Op FAQ if you have any questions about it.

Last week there was a bit of a hullabaloo concerning microtransactions in Dead Space 3. Players can now spend real life money on in-game digital resources. It was as if EA had never charged players for better items in a Dead Space game before (they have). Not only has EA charged consumers for advanced weaponry and skins, people seem to love it. Most Marketplace items have at least a four star rating --and we all know the Xbox Live Marketplace star ratings are infallible. Or not. The point is, people have been paying for Dead Space extras for years.

Obligatory launch day DLC announcements! Isaac Clarke is using the buddy system in his latest foray into survival horror, bringing a hardened soldier, John Carver, along for the ride. The frozen planet of Tau Volantis may hold secrets of the Necromorph menace and a host of other dangers, but the story doesn't end there.

We had heard rumors, but E3 2012 confirmed to us that Dead Space 3 would feature co-op play.  Fans of the series balked.  Co-Op fans cheered.  Could both of these groups be satiated with the game that Visceral has developed?

The Dead Space 3 launch date is slowly creeping toward us. EA is throwing their marketing weight around with a launch trailer that has appeared during almost every single commercial break I've seen since posting it three days ago. It was cool on Monday, but Isaac's "angry face" is starting to get to me.
