Is Dead Space 3 Cooperating with Fans' Wants? (Nerd Reactor E3 Preview)

Nerd Reactor gives you their opinion on EA's extended E3 gameplay demo. Do fans have something to worry about regarding the new co-op mode? They detail the new necromorphs and moves (cover, rolling). They also reveal some of the things we can probably expect from the latest game when it launches. (Dead Space 3, E3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

when ME3 released and fans was complaining about the ending. they were labelled "ENTITLED" whinny baby. now i see article like these from gaming site about what they want to see in games or what gamers want and think is this not the definition of an "ENTITLED WHINNY GAMER" or does that only apply to fans feedback on a bioware game?

Hi Vega,

If you take the time to read the article, you'll find that we're optimistic about Dead Space 3. We're just bringing up the issue, because the co-op is what's new with the series, and it's what fans are worried about. It'd be great if you would read before commenting though.

I never said you article wasn't optimistic. I'm saying that when you say in your article about what you want to see. it just comes off as being entitled whinier when you don't see it in the game. i mean if these things you want don't make it in the game. will that be a no sale for you and many gamers?

this isn't like ME where you decisions in the game effected your outcome or developer is asking for feedback as to what to put into the game. so you shouldn't expect these thing in the game.

1)you should want a game that plays without so many bugs that it needs a patch on day one

2)you should want the dev to spend enough time getting this game right on all platforms

3)you should expect to get a complete experience from the game without having to buy day one DLC.

now that's what i want.

Okay, well, I guess I should be clearer in my article, but I'm excited for Dead Space 3. I'll be playing it day-one. I'm not excessively worried about the co-op like some fans are. I have a mind-set that I'm going to have a lot of fun playing it.

It's not really fair to reply to his comment by adding a lot of things that you never even came close to hinting on and saying "that's what I meant".

No man, you didn't mean that. You added all of that after the fact.

Now, I DO agree with the point behind your second comment. Aside from the first several sentences, I mean.

Ot: The good thing about Dead Space 3 aka silver lining?

I've finally been able to convince my roommate to play the original Dead Space.

Edit: I didn't click disagree since I replied to you directly.

It would seem a tad redundant at the point in time lol.

dead space isn't really a survival horror game anyway. it's just an action game that tries to have some startling moments. it's not scary though. especially the 2nd one. so how will having co-op change anything? a good co-op game can still have startling moments...look at L4D.

I liked a LOT the first Dead Space ( surely one of the best games this generation for me ), the second less because of the feeling of a too large recycling of the first title took me from start to finish ( and the multiplayer was total garbage* )

I LOVE coop games but I think a coop-Dead Space should have been a spin-off.

Dead Space 3 will probably be dissapointing to me :/

EA and your stupid ideas ...

*side note: when I told that was going to be like this because Dead Space has -and should not have- nothing to do with MP, and that the MP imposition would have ruined the core of the title, I have got a lot of disagree ... :/ see now?

You need to make som adjustments for a game like dead space. Play only at night, with minimum ambient light and a decent surround sound system. If you let the atmosphere get to you, youre gonna have a great time. Lots of chills for me during both games.
But of course you can be cynical and play it like an average shooter and bash it on the forums.
Im not decided on the coop thing, though. Can be fun, also can harm the atmosphere.
The bottom line is, Visceral Games did a great job twice already. Cant wait for the third game.

I'd have to agree. Too many whiny people on these subjects. The guys who make the games we play are the programmers and creative directors and designers who give us our hobby. Half the damn people on this site think they can do better? Go ahead then! When your game is scrutinized for including ideas you thought were good and your studio is disbanded and fired because your games didn't reach a 80 on metacritic I'll check back and see your minds changed. Cut these people some slack!

Firstly this game is suddenly receiving a lot of attention which is exactly what EA wanted. Secondly they are changing the genre of the game by making it more of an Action-Thriller rather than the Horror game it started as. I loved DS and DS2 and found it to be truly unique throughout all consoles this generation. However we are now in an era where no matter how good the game is, if it doesn't generate the kind of revenue that makes EA's time worthwhile they will either scrap it or change it to suit a wider audience. In this case I wont judge until i actually play the game, but already i sense that this will not grip me as much as the original 2.

This co op thing might be like RE5 where it wasn't even scary playing it..Idk I hope not lol
ApolloAdams  +   1214d ago
Yes. People are over reacting as the usual because they said it will be more action based but keeps the horror. Gamers are going crazy off of some sample E3 footage and rhetoric from gaming journalist who claim what a small group of fans want which is a good scary game.

As long as I'm not forced to have the other character along with me, I' fine.
I hate tag along games.
