Dead Space 2 in stores now, new DLC pack announced

EA’s Dead Space 2 is now available at retails stores in North America, sorry Europe you will have to wait until January 28th (and even longer if you live in Germany).

The title has been pulling in some very good review scores, but remember the best (and by best I mean dumbest) reason to get it is because your mom hates Dead Space 2.

Additionally, Visceral Games announced a new DLC pack for the single-player game titled Dead Space 2: Severed. The pack will launch “soon” on Xbox Live and PSN, and follows Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock from Dead Space Extraction.

Full press release after the break.

Steve Jobs takes medical leave of absence from Apple

Email from Apple CEO Steve Jobs to all Apple employees:

Team,

At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple’s day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.

I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.

Steve
