Dead Space 3 has a mid-game twist and “did not change the formula”: Interview with John Calhoun

OXCGN:

"'Some people said, no I just couldn't take it, it's unrelenting, it was gory, it was just too much.'

Whilst it was an extremely intense session in a chilly room decked out with a fake-white snow carpet I had the chance to speak with John Calhoun producer on Dead Space 3.

In the 13 minute interview I got a better understanding of a developers point of view regarding backlash from consumers regarding the game's change of direction and a delved a little deeper in the thought process of including certain features in the 3rd installment of this popular franchise." (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

A very enlightening interview actually. He addresses the controversy well.

Glad to hear his response regarding series fans concerns, but i seriously wish twists weren't revealed to you...

No matter how little, knowing a twist is coming makes you look for it and less surprised when it happens.

*Resistance 3 spoilers!* The Prison section in R3 would have been a wash out and had way less impact if i was told the whole game changes half way through practically.

I was a Resistance 3 Day 1, so I got there spoiler free and it actually *was* a great twist.

I love twists.

Eager to see the final result for myself when I get my hands on the game.

It's interesting how he said that at E3 they have to show a part of the game that isn't necessarily representative of the game as a whole.

It does give certain impressions.

The microtransactions explanation also makes sense. You can earn the gear in-game if you want for free. Makes sense to me.

I'm looking forward to the coop...

Um...

*rage mode activate*

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!
Conzul  +   578d ago
The point of the interview is that Calhoun wanted to make the game appealing to casuals *on the surface* (i.e. Co-op, action-ey demo, microtransactions, trailers, etc) but in reality those are smaller aspects of the game and the faithful needn't worry.

We won't know till release whether or not he toed the line like he says they did. Day 1 for me though.

I'm actual very excited for this game again! Everything he said makes perfect sense. Definitely picking this one up now.

Mid-game twist? My bet is that Isaac becomes part Necromorph and part human while keeping his mind intact and where the necro has no control over what he does.

Quake 4 is that you? Oh I've missed you so much!

Will we have to do a micro transaction to get the twist :-D
Convas  +   578d ago
Don't give a damn about the dissenters. Come Feb. 5th, going to be dismembering necros and unis for 4, 5, 6 or more playthroughs of Dead Space 3.

I'm guessing the twist is that the necromorphs are part of the marker fucking with our brains, in reality the necromorphs are 'normal' humans that just went crazy and start attacking people, we see them as necromorphs because WE are also affected by the markers..thats why some have guns in this game
Probably wrong, but it would be an interesting twist

You're right. It would.
