Dead Space: how to fix the centrifuge

The Dead Space remake is a mostly faithful recreation of the survival horror title everyone has known and loved for years, but a few of its areas have been reworked to be less frustrating or more interesting. Such is the case with the centrifuge area in Chapter 3: Course Correction, which asks you to do essentially the same thing as you did in the 2008 original — except with a bit more intensity and flair. Still, it’s easy to overlook the solution to this early-game puzzle, as it asks you to use some powers you may not have spent much time with yet. In this brief guide, we’ll tell you how to fix the centrifuge.

How to fix the centrifuge in Dead Space

The centrifuge is located in a large circular room, and you’ll be tasked with reattaching two generator modules to fix it. You’ll likely first notice that the generator modules are rapidly spinning, and you may even notice that they’re sporting a bright icon indicating that you can use your kinesis on them. However, trying to do so will cause them to be rejected due to the aforementioned spinning.

To solve this problem, approach one of the generator modules and fire your stasis at the tip to slow the spinning. Immediately after, use your kinesis to drag the module into the centrifuge to lock it in. Repeat this process with the second module. When you’ve made sure both are connected – and killed any necromorphs that may be bothering you in the area – glide over to the control panel on the walkway nearby and use it to restart the centrifuge. Doing so will complete this segment of your mission.

Diablo 4 beta rewards: how to earn all titles and cosmetics

Diablo 4's beta is an opportunity for fans of the loot-heavy role-playing game to sink some time into its dark and demonic world before the game launches on June 6. Though you can invest a good bit of time into seeing everything Blizzard has included in the beta, you won't be able to carry the progress you make into the full game, meaning everything you do is just for testing purposes – well, almost everything. By completing a few milestones during the beta, you can earn some neat rewards to use in the full release later this year. Here's how to get them all.
All Diablo 4 beta rewards and how to get them

There are three rewards you can obtain during Diablo 4's beta, including two titles and a unique (and extremely cute) cosmetic – all of which assumedly won't ever be earnable by any other means in the retail game. In other words, if you want anything Blizzard is offering during the beta period, you'll need to devote the time to get them now or risk never having another opportunity.

5 features we’d need from a PS5 Pro to justify an upgrade
The Playstation 5 system standing upright.

A new version of the PlayStation 5 may be on the horizon – at least if you believe the leaks. Earlier this week, Insider Gaming reported that a PS5 Pro is in development and is scheduled for a late 2024 launch. Considering that the rumor site previously claimed that a PS5 with a detachable drive would launch this year, you might want to take the claim with some skepticism. Insider Gaming provided no actual details on specs or what a Pro model would entail, only claiming that a source says it's in the works.

There’s not a lot to go on there, but just about any educated gamer could predict that a PS5 Pro is coming in the next year or two. Sony previously followed the PlayStation 4 with a PS4 Pro, which would improve the system’s power three years after its launch. It’s reasonable to think that PS5 would get the same treatment four years later -- which would likely be near the halfway point of its life span.

With the addition of multiple new vehicles in Chapter 4 Season 2, you'd be forgiven for not knowing precisely which one is a Nitro Drifter (pictured above). This colorful street racing car can be found in multiple spots around the map, but it's most plentiful in and around Mega City -- which unfortunately isn't one of the best places to land in Fortnite, due to it being a hotspot. If you don't want to deal with all of the competition you're certain to face in downtown Mega City, your best bet for finding plenty of Nitro Drifters is by landing at the racetrack to the north of the city.
