Get ready for round 3 geeks! EA has made it official, Dead Space 3 is coming to consoles and PC next year! We speculated on it last month during EA’s fiscal report, hoping it was more than mere fantasy and thankfully it’s real. The necromorph plague is still raging on and only series hero, engineer Isaac Clarke, can end it for good. Mad man Clarke has crash landed on a mysterious planet named Tau Volantis, a planet that may hold the key to eradicating the nasty creeps forever! The combat will switch from the tight corridor scarefest to planet side survival.
A new addition to the series will be drop in\drop out co-op. EA is promising the co-op won’t just be the campaign with a friend because they want gamers with friends to experience extra story bits as well new gameplay mechanics. No word if the multiplayer element from Dead Space 2 is returning, hopefully the co-op will replace it so Visceral can concentrate on the core single player game, make it so scary even the toughest geek craps his pants – twice!
Expected launch for Dead Space 3 is February of 2013 and will hit the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Get ready for a heart transplant! Hot the break for the full press release from EA and watch for more details as we get them!
Who Sexts More: Women or Men?

A recent study has been conducted and found of the people who are sexting each other, women are more likely to do it then men do. Of the women involved in the study, fully two thirds stated that they setxed. Only half of the men involved in the study stated that they did. The study also proved that women are more likely to send nude pictures of themselves out over the internet. Does this prove that men prefer seeing the naked female form over sending theirs? I think that answer is a resounding YES!
The study conducted by two researchers, professor of sociology and women’s studies at the University of Nebraska at Kearney Diane Kholos Wysocki and professor of sociology at Washburn University Cheryl D. Childers. The researches were accessed from AshleyMadison.com. The website is a outlet for individuals whose marriages might not be sexually fulfilling.
Suspected PSN Hackers Arrested In Spain!

Almost a month of downtime, up to $171 million in revenue loss, millions of user’s personal info stolen, and the laughing stock of the geek world…what could we be talking about? How about the major security issues Sony has been troubled with over the last few months of course! Well good news they might have apprehended three of the people that were involved in this crime.
One of the three that was caught had a server in his house that was believed to be involved in the PSN attack as well as banks, various countries’ government websites, and more. The three that are suspected live in Barcelona, Alicante, and Almeria and have been released without bail says the New York Times. Now if these are the geeks that were involved and they get away I’m gonna get a little upset as it has really screwed up some of my personal game time! The Times also says that they ”were expected to be charged with forming an illegal association to attack public and corporate Web sites.” If they are convicted it could land these suspected crooks up to three years in jail. I am surprised they are only looking at three years. $171 million in loss and its only three years? Can’t you get more time for downloading an illegal MP3 these days? More after the jump…
WikiLeaks iOS app removed from Apple app store

It has been a while since any of us were able to watch T.V. or listen to anything on the radio and not hear something about WikiLeaks. So maybe the saying “Any publicity is good publicity” is still holding true and with the war that seems to be waged against the site Apple has finally decided to chose a side.
Igor Barinov, the developer of an unofficial WikiLeaks app that showed content from the site and Twitter account received an email from Apple yesterday informing him that his $1.99 app had been removed from the app store. Apple told New York Times it violated developer guidelines stating that apps “must comply with all locals laws and may not put an individual or group in harm’s way.” However the email to Barinov lacks any sort of specificity and asks him to contact the iTunes Store Team for resolution.
It is still unclear as to if the app actually violated any of the terms associated with the iOS terms-of-service or if is just what is happening with so many other big names and they are getting thier discrimination on again WikiLeaks. Good choice? What do you think?
