The Dead Space remake is coming in early 2023. In the newest blog post, the developers shared an interesting news about the camera in the game. They say the remake will play out over one continuous shot the entire time, just like the 2018 God of War. That means no loading screens and no breathing room between the segments, which will create a whole new level of atmosphere.

After just a few years, Google decided to shut down the streaming service Google Stadia as it “hasn’t gained the traction with users that we expected.” The end date is set to January 18, 2023, so players still have some time to finish their games. Google is known for cancelling their projects like Google Play Music or Picassa, so Stadia is just another one on the list.

Quote of the Month


Fans and even several gaming journalists consider the remake of The Last of Us an unnecessary one. That’s because the game came out in 2013, so not even ten years ago. Moreover, the game got a remastered version for the PlayStation 4 a year later. Among such journalists is for example Jason Schreier, who after just 4 days after the release of the remake tweeted: “Alright, I think it’s been long enough: it’s time for another remake of The Last of Us.”
