When I got Dead Space on the PC a few months back, I was told to play with the lights on, during the day.

Well, I didn’t think it was *that* scary.  It’s a dark, life-threatening jaunt into a haunted spaceship filled with vicious tentacled monsters reminiscent of the alien menaces in Alien and Aliens movies.

Dead Space is at the vanguard of a genre known as survival-horror.  Dead Space developers watched a lot of horror movies and studied corpses killed in traffic accidents to tell the story.

Experience this new genre inspired by horror movies.

It’s coming out on the Wii in September 2009.

Ageless Pele in Academy of Champions.

Look for Pele in the upcoming Ubisoft Wii game later this year.  Ubisoft’s Academy of Champions features soccer greats Pele and Mia Hamm as competing soccer masters in a Harry Potter-Hogwarts style soccer school game world.  In this Wii game, Pele, the amiable, laid-back legend, mentors kids at a boarding school who want to excel in soccer.

Great way for the whole family to enjoy soccer in the livingroom in a kid-friendly, smile-inducing game play and Harry Potter like storytelling.

Wii Sports for kids with Pele the beloved soccer legend is pure genius.
