Resident Evil used to be the scariest game series on the planet, but there’s a new champ and its name is Dead Space. Seriously, if you say you can play this game with the lights off and the sound turned up and not get scared, then well, you’re lying. The sequel comes out this Tuesday, and Dead Space 2 doesn’t half step. In fact, it’s even scarier than the first game. Set on a space station orbiting Saturn, the whole place is overrun with ghoulish creatures hoping to rip your heart out and shove it down your throat. If you like third-person shooters like Gears of War this game is right up your blood-soaked alley. There’s even a multiplayer mode where one side plays as the humans and the other as the ghouls. It’s coming out for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 so it’s an equal opportunity frightener. Play it if you dare.

Kiss Each Other Clean is the fourth studio album by Iron & Wine (Samuel Beam) and is is his first full LP for the Warner Bros. label after leaving Sub Pop. The new record marks an even bigger change in style for the insanely talented musician. In a recent interview with SPIN magazine Beam stated: “It’s more of a focused pop record. It sounds like the music people heard in their parent’s car growing up… that early-to-mid-’70s FM, radio-friendly music." This is pop music at its finest. Kiss Each Other Clean should be an amazing record all around. Scoop it.
