Dead Space 2

Dead Space 2 - John Riccitiello runs EA, the company that makes the Dead Space sci-fi horror games, so he's biased. Nevertheless, he just finished playing through Dead Space 2. I don't even have it yet.

As Riccitiello wrapped up an interview with me this morning, he couldn't suppress his excitement as he said me he'd recently completed a playthrough of Dead Space 2. The game isn't out until January, but the head of EA enjoys his perks.

Dead Space 2 is supposed to be one of the better upcoming games, a follow-up to the well-liked series of horror games set in outer-space. He said it was paced very well, with lots of good action. I mentioned that some readers of my Kotaku previews of the game had worried that the sequel, which we've known is supposed to be more action-packed, would be less scary than the slower original. "Scarier," Riccitiello said.

Then he started raving about the boss battles, which he says are superior to the first game's — the big bad guys seem meaner. He praised the game's high-altitude space-diving. And then he was about to mention another thing he liked but shut himself up.

Riccitiello said he was playing on a nearly-final version of the game. People who don't run Electronic Arts will have to wait until 2011 for the final version, which is supposed to be out on January 25 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
