One of the more "controversial" game announcements of this year was 2K Games' currently in progress reworking of the classic PC turn-based strategy franchise as a high action first-person shooting game light on the tactical elements longtime fans expect from the series. From the striking "retro" visual style to the alien designs to the gameplay, plenty of X-Com: UFO Defense die-hards have been burning up message boards with hissy-fit griping about every aspect of the new game's design before even getting some hands-on time with a demo.

Get A Little Bit Of Dead Space 2 In Your Inbox...

EA's Dead Space Community is offering up a chance for members to get an early peek at the sequel to the great sci-fi/horror hybrid. Just click on over to the game's official site, sign up if you haven't already and watch your inbox until June 14, when you'll get a nice little email with a slice of exclusive DS2 community-only footage enclosed. Simple, huh?

Yeah, an actual demo code or demo disc would be even better at some point in the near future (note to EA: hint, hint...), but you can't argue with the free part, right?

Deus EX: Human Revolution E3 Trailer

Nice. Rabbit baby wants, Rabbit baby gets! Even though the specter of Spector is non-existent in this followup, the game is looking mighty good thus far in this teaser. Square Enix needs a mega-hit that's not just another Final Fantasy game and this could be it...
