Micro-transactions in a $60 story based horror game is pretty scary if you ask me.

It's even more scary when you realise it's probably the only real scary thing about the game now

"There are action game fans, and survival horror game fans, who are 19 and 20, and they've only played games on their smartphones, and micro-transactions are to them a standard part of gaming"

So first on disc DLC becomes a standard part of gaming, now micro transactions are a standard part of gaming...

The same tactics EA used in ME3 Multiplayer?

You made one mistake ! It's not a horror game anymore :D Visceral is following Capcom !

the game isn't scary after trying the demo.
demo set at the middle of the day, where you meet many humans. you fight big giant spider in wide snowy field. that is not scary at all I am sorry. let alone playing co-op.

co-op was fun.
Was it scary though? Hell no.

Soooo dont play the co-op then. Problem solved genius.

All of you idiots dont have a clue as to what you are whining about. Dont like micro transactions? Heres a shocker, DONT USE THEM! Didnt think the demo was scary? Thats ONE ten minute section of a 10 hour game. Dead Space 2 had sections JUST like that. My advice to you brats, sit down, shut the f**k up and wait until the game comes out. Chances are, all of your whining will be for naught, the same way it was prior to Dead Space 2 dropping.

@harryMasonHerpderp it is fun I agree , but what I meant if you play co-op you won't feel scared at all.
