Electronic Arts tried to purchase Valve in the past

When you say "Electronic Arts" and "Valve" in the same sentence, most gamers will likely point to the digital distribution tussle currently going on between the two.

Visceral shares new Dead Space 3 screenshots

We still have about five months to wait until Dead Space 3 finally arrives (yes, it's still that far off), but Visceral Games and Electronic Arts been kind enough to share a collection of brand new screenshots to help tide us over. There are 10 in all, and they give glimpse at a variety of different things including Necromorphs, space, and even a couple new weapons. There are also some images of Isaac himself in his new armor, and we have to say he's looking pretty good for a person who has been through two horrific encounters with the Necromorphs.

Later in the day, we caught word that Judge Lucy Koh had asked Apple's counsel if they were smoking crack when they presented an extremely long document filled with witnesses they wanted to call for rebuttals.
