Major Nelson announced today that Dead Space and DiRT are now available for direct download.
Dead Space: When an immense mining ship, the USG Ishimura, comes into contact with a mysterious alien artifact in a remote star system, its communications with Earth are mysteriously cut off. Engineer Isaac Clarke is sent to repair the Ishimura's communications array, but he arrives to find a living nightmare--the ship is a floating bloodbath, the crew unspeakably mutilated and infected by an ancient alien scourge. Clarke's repair mission becomes one of survival as he fights not just to save himself, but to return the artifact to the planet ... at any cost.
I cannot give a firsthand rating for this game, but I am sure the TA community at large can tell you how solid of a game Dead Space is. The demo that is available on the Marketplace does not do this game proper justice. Dead Space is a 6 GB download and pricing can vary between regions.
DiRT: DiRTTM is an off-road racing game. The player’s role is to race their way through the world of off-road motor sport, increasing their fame and prestige on their way to becoming the ultimate Off-Road Champion of Champions.
DiRT does provide a forgiving crash system by allowing players to rewind the action. There is a demo available on the Marketplace. DiRT is a 6 GB download and pricing can vary between regions.
