I didn't start following EA's Dead Space until the footage started rolling out at E3. Now it's one of my most anticipated Fall releases. Who would have thunk that along with Mirror's Edge, EA would be leading the pack with awesome-looking new IP's. I think it's a sign of the apocalypse or something.
The innovative "non-menu " menus, and the "strategic dismemberment" gameplay element coupled with some gorgeous presentation and production values have shifted Dead Space from on-the-radar material to a likely Day One purchase.
GameTrailers has some great footage up that's worth checking out.

Also of note, it looks like there is a full-feature animated movie releasing soon to DVD that covers the events that lead-up to where the game starts. The trailer can be found here:
The animation style reminds me a lot of the art used in the Jeanne D'Arc (PSP) cut scenes.
So has anyone else caught Dead Space fever?
