As you might have heard, the earth is slowly running out of resources. If humans continue to strip the planet of oil, trees, and whatever else they can burn for energy, there's a good chance that the human race won't survive. Of course, they could always look to other planets when theirs has been used up. Future generations could cruise through the furthest reaches of the galaxy, taking resources from other celestial bodies. This is the setup in Dead Space, the upcoming survival-horror game from the folks at Electronic Arts. Naturally, given that it's a horror game and not a resource-management sim, something goes terribly wrong with the aforementioned plan, and it's not long before the stuff hits the fan.
