Weekly Giveaway: Dead Space Catalyst Edition

Hi again gamers and welcome to this week’s prize giveaway. Leave us a comment for a chance to win free game codes and other cool prizes while celebrating your favorite games. We do this every week—to stay in touch with these giveaways, like us on Facebook.

It’s hard to believe that it’s only been five years since the original Dead Space came out. Whether you were running from shooting the sharp limbs off a Necromoprh or scrounging for every last bit on ammo, Dead Space was a pulse-pounding ride from the beginning all the way to the chilling final scene. It, along with Resident Evil 4, marked a shift in the horror genre from older "survival horror" games like Silent Hill and Resident Evil to the faster-paced "action horror" genre.

For a chance to win a copy of the awesome Dead Space Catalyst paperback by B.K. Evenson, and Skin Pack 5 for Minecraft on Xbox 360 (which will let you play as  Isaac, Carver, Ellie, and a Necromorph), tell us: what is your all-time favorite horror game? Are you a fan of the more action-type games such as F.E.A.R.? Or are you interested more by the psychological horror of games like Silent Hill or Eternal Darkness? Comment below about the first game that gave you the heebie-jeebies for your chance to win!
