In this week’s Totally Rated, we check out new details on the Dead Space remake and hear all about the Galaxy Z Flip 3- an affordable way to dip your toes into the world of foldable phones.

Totally Rated features reviews and opinions of what’s hot and what’s not in the tech and gaming world.
Bringing together leading titles from across the industry, we hear first hand from those who have reviewed – and rated – the very latest games and products on the market.
First up in news, We have some new details on the Dead Space remake via a live stream this week from Motive Studio, the developer behind the next-gen remaster.

One major difference we’ll be seeing in this remake of the 2008 survival horror game is that our protagonist, Isaac, will be speaking. Originally Isaac didn’t find his voice until Dead Space 2, but this time around, the role of the player character will be reprised by Gunner Wright, who played Isaac in the games he was able to speak in.

We also saw some pre-alpha gameplay showcasing improvements to the dismemberment mechanics and a new peeling mechanic- with Necromoph flesh now designed to peel away from the bone as you blast with less surgical weapons. The new mechanics will be giving us even more detail and realism in the blood and guts that helped the original game become so popular in its genre.

The power of next-gen console graphics will allow for more gore than ever before-so get your sick bags and mop ready because the USG Ishimura is going to need a serious wipe down when we’re done.

This week, TechRadar’s US mobile editor David Lumb took a look at the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and delivered his verdict of 4 out of 5 stars:

“The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is the best clamshell foldable you can buy. It’s got specs and a price point comparable with flagship phones, but its relatively small battery holds it back.

When it comes to cameras, the Z Flip 3 has an acceptable offering, but not comparable to what you’ll find on phones like the comparably-priced Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus.

Wary consumers may want to wait to see what innovations come in the next iteration – but if you want a phone that folds up to fit easier into bags and pockets, and still competes with similar performance to other flagship phones, the Z Flip 3 is a good option to buy today.”

Love it or hate it- no matter how we feel, it seems like the foldable phone future has well and truly arrived. But is this more affordable entry price point enough to get you in on the trend or is the technology not quite there for you yet?

And finally this week we got one step closer to a GTA 6 release date… kind of.

A recent episode of Schlag den Star, a German game show, was interrupted by a man who asked the hilariously perplexed hosts when he’ll get to play Rockstar’s new game.

A clip of the interruption was posted to the GTA 6 subreddit, where members set to translating the scene.

The emboldened GTA fan encouraged the show’s moderator, to shout “where is GTA 6?” into the camera. But he simply responded that he hasn’t even finished GTA 5 yet.

The stage stormer was swiftly led away by security, and then the host oddly suggested he’d been paid off by Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive.

The response to the incident online has been varied; some German viewers have complained that the unexpected guest didn’t use his temporary platform to highlight something more important, while some conspiracy theorists claimed he came through suspiciously clearly over the show’s audio, leading to suspicion that the whole thing could be a bizarre marketing stunt to kick off the game’s publicity.

Right now, there’s no official word on the release of GTA 6. However, some recent reports suggest that Rockstar might be targeting dates as late as 2025.

For the sake of avid fans (including us!), hopefully we’ll hear more about the game before then. In the meantime, stay tuned as New episodes of Totally Rated will roll out every week.
