Holy %$!#, that scared me!

The Xbox 360 version of the upcoming sci-fi horror game Dead Space 3 will be able to detect curse words when players have a Kinect sensor hooked up, and may respond in some specific but yet-to-be-revealed fashion. Funny, I swear at my Kinect all the time and it doesn't do anything differently. Ha ha, just kidding! I haven't had my Kinect plugged in for months.

Speaking of being scared

 

 

A new trailer has surfaced for Slender: The Arrival, the latest PC horror game based on the Slender Man myth and designed by Slender: The Eight Pages creator Mark Hadley (with help from the creators of the very creepy Marble Hornets web series.) Turn off the lights and hit up www.slenderarrival.com.

Grand Theft Submarine?

Rockstar Games' long awaited Grand Theft Auto V may include SCUBA gear and submersible vehicles, if the latest round of screenshots is to be believed. Not sure how I feel about this, as Rockstar sometimes errs on the side of cramming in too much random filler into their games. With GTA V's world said to be bigger than GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption and GTA: San Andreas combined, how much is too much? I'd better book a month off work right now.

And speaking of open-world mayhem

Avalanche Studios have dropped more hints that Just Cause 3 might be in the works, if by "hints" you mean "cryptic postings for game development jobs that could be for something else entirely." But a sequel to 2010's fantastic Just Cause 2 seems like a no-brainer (I still play that game regularly), and the latest job ads -- including one for a senior graphics programmer to join a team developing a "next-generation graphics engine" -- suggest Rico Rodriguez could return on the next-gen Xbox and PlayStation. Muy bueno.
