Password Check

Lifehacker recently posted a link to this website that tests the strength of your password against a brute force attack. You simply have to enter the number of letters, numbers, symbols, etc. and the website calculates the amount of time it would take a brute force attack generated by a typical PC.

Dead Space Cipher

I found this cipher in chapter 6 of Dead Space.

It looks like Kotaku is onto this little tidbit as well.

Dead Space

I've been playing Dead Space lately and I have to say that I love it. The strategic dismemberment game play style gives the game an interesting twist and having no HUD really immerses you in the game. I've noticed the game has a few issues smoothly rendering shadows, but that's a minor issue which doesn't detract from the game at all. The baddies (necromorphs) however are eerily similar to the flood of Halo fame.

I have to say, if you've had any fun in the genre before you'll enjoy this.
