Dead Space 3 aiming for “quad-A” with series evolution

Dead Space 3 executive producer Steve Papoutsis says Visceral is going above and beyond “triple-A” with the horror sequel.

After what you've done to the game where it looks nothing like a Dead Space game but more of a Gears of War/Lost Planet clone...I highly doubt that.

Marcello1327d ago

Yea its EA again trying to cash in on the success of other publishers game types. The same happened to Burnout. If they wanted a quad A game then they should have just improved on wat was already a superb formula.

Dead Space 1 is a 10/10 game.

Compared to where DS3 is going, DS1 is indeed a 10/10 game.

Carl_Shocker1327d ago

I mean did they not learn from Capcom mistakes...least Capcom established the RE franchise for years and years before they ruined it and gave fans the middle finger.

I mean I know theres people who are obviously going to say "Give it a chance" but what is the point we've seen this happen before with a horror game, it was called Resident Evil 5, despite giving us the option for co-op the horrible character your with is still in the story and the levels are still designed around co-op.

lol only sony exclusives are quad A games...

GrahamGolden1327d ago

well look at the bright side

if the game sale less than 2mil they will cancel the franchise..from the direction the game went ? its a good thing

the negative side tho is that the team of DS will probably die just like other companies EA had

I still think everyone is judging it waaay too early. Don't get me wrong, I don't want them to screw it up either because I love 1 & 2 but it's the same team behind it so I'm giving them the benefit of a doubt.

You're a reasonable human. Not many of those on the planet, much less on this site.

Take a look at this:

As you can see, they're leaving a lot of what makes Dead Space great intact. Visceral just doesn't want to become predictable and make another game where you "Walk around a space ship/station and shoot limbs". If Dead Space 3 took place entirely in another ship or station I think it would be pretty stale.

I'll remain optimistic until Visceral releases a game that doesn't live up to the previous Dead Space entries. DS3 could be that game, but for now I'm excited.

"make another game where you "Walk around a space ship/station and shoot limbs"

Sorry but who wouldn't like that.

Return to the Ishimura was the best level in Dead Space 2. Besides wouldn't it be better to make a Marker base like the inside of a space ship instead of having it so open and non scary.

It's not that hard to create and improve what we've experienced before instead of changing everything what made the game great.

Dead Space 12 aiming for AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA..... . with 62 player co-op

adorie1327d ago

Lol... Dead Space 3 = Quad-A Graphics: Ray Tracing
Multiplayer: 62 players?
Singleplayer: Campaign that takes 2 weeks of total play time to beat
Unlockables: Peng Skin, EA CEO skin, Tommy Gun, Boxing Gloves (finish blows explode the monsters to pieces or knock them back really far)

That's Quad A to me. :)

MEH, DS has been bastardized to nothing more than a bargain bin pick up. It's such a shame because after the 1st I thought it would be one of my favorite series for years to come.

"Dead Space 3 aiming for “quad-A” with series evolution"
Now that sh!t sounds hilarious, LMFAO.

Megaton1327d ago

Like all good things, EA swiftly destroyed this series.
