If You Don’t Like Dead Space 3, Speak With Your Wallet Not Your Keyboard


"After playing through the first three hours of the title, the game still retains the same basic functions that made Dead Space such a great new IP when it was released in 2008.

My point is simple.

If you don’t like it, speak with your wallet and don’t purchase the game. Crazy, I know." (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'll be hated for this, but Dead Space was always very scary to me and I couldn't beat it. I enjoyed 2 more because it was more action-oriented and less repetitive, and the coop aspect of 3 makes it a must-buy for me.

I don't think there is anything wrong with diversity and they already explained that they had to show action oriented gameplay for the Expo, but that it wasn't all that.

All games from RPGs to stealth games are more action oriented now.

I agree, you should speak with your wallet. However for some people that's not enough, they would rather try and convince others to do the same. That I don't agree with. I for one don't like others trying to speak on my behalf nor do I like people telling others what to do with their own money.

So what ends up happening is you have trolls congregating with those who may be interested the product. It's like oil and water.

Says the guy who was bashing everyone's opinion on dmc articles when they stated they didn't like the game...even though they didn't tell you off for liking the game

...pffft hypocrite

Then you waste most of your time hunting the ones who dislike something you like, wait untill they've posted something and bash their comment

You've been doing it to me for ages now, most of your comments pretty much are about me

"Says the guy who was bashing everyone's opinion on dmc articles when they stated they didn't like the game...even though they didn't tell you off for liking the game "

Really? Mind showing me where I bashed your opinion or anyone else? You didn't have an opinion, it was just a bunch of rambling about how it wasn't a true DMC game and how everyone should avoid it like the plague. So no, my responses were not about how you felt about the reboot because that is not something I can refute, it was your approach and how you keep harping the same old tactics trying to get everyone to hate the game regardless of you playing the full game. You're now doing it with Dead Space 3 and Tomb Raider.

I am also not alone, many others have also had enough of your antics and tantrums.

You have a beef with the production of the game so your opinion clouded with judgement, not experiencing it.

"Then you waste most of your time hunting the ones who dislike something you like, wait untill they've posted something and bash their comment"

Again false. You're on here day in day out whining constantly about how this game is bad or how that franchise if going down the crapper which is fine, the problem is you keep flooding the forums with it. Then you have the audacity to claim I'm hunting you down while you're arguing with a moderator about how mistreated you've been while you yourself were continuing an argument with someone who YOU hunted down. So let me ask you the million dollar question, how did you find me here?

Now that's hilarious. You've also been called out by the moderator for having multiple accounts. Seems to me like you've got issues.


Of course he's wrong. Everyone is but you. You're also right about me not being able to help myself with those who have a different opinion than me. That's why I argue with so many people on here I don't agree with, right?

Well he's wrong and I've messaged him about it...

I did get my account banned but Nineballs gave it back to me said there had been a mistake. This is what he said

"I've removed the ban on this account Root.

Thanks "

So obviously he didn't get the memo, Nineballs thought I was some guy called C3LL1/cell1 or something

Mike just leave it, honestly at the end of the day your just a massive hypocrite and you can't help it when someone has a different opinion then you. Instead of trying to mature about things you end up personal attacking people and being immature about it.

You wouldn't like it done to you...obviously don't know how to respect anyone


"Of course he's wrong. Everyone is but you."

Obviously, thats what I just said. If Nineballs un ban me then yeah he made a mistake. Stop going back to the account and stay on topic. Trying to turn it against me to make me look bad.



Cut it out and stop going off topic, jesus christ, what is wrong with you.

"If you don't like me calling you out use the ignore function. But part of me thinks you get off on this attention in the first place. It suits the character of one who creates multiple accounts, posts 50 times a day, argues with moderators, and thinks everyone else is wrong, all while stirring up the community with negativity."

Seriously making crap up as you go along to try and make yourself look like the guy in the right. We weren't arguing we were having a discussion which continued on PMs and were cool about it. Stop acting like you know everything, you take things, spin them and try and use them on people.

First off you're the one who followed me here, not the other way around. Second of all don't be telling people how to act when you yourself are the one who's guilty of the conduct you're now trying to displace yourself from.

This Summons75 person makes a comment and then you show up there to blast him, be off-topic and call him/her an immature troll. Do you even know what the word hypocrite means? So before you call me or anyone else one look in your own backyard. You hunted that person down and continued an earlier argument is what the moderator said. Yet here you are calling me a hypocrite and accusing me of hunting you down. You couldn't be more spot on about yourself if you connected the dots with Crayon.

If you don't like me calling you out use the ignore function. But part of me thinks you get off on this attention in the first place. It suits the character of one who creates multiple accounts, posts 50 times a day, argues with moderators, and thinks everyone else is wrong, all while stirring up the community with negativity.

On top of all of that each time I ask you to prove something you go off on some other tangent about something else and deflect. Totally unaware of the word accountability.

not having a go at you but, Ive never been able to understand how people get scared by any film or game. Fear to me is something that poses a threat to me or someone a care about.

A game and film cant pose a threat to me and in dead space its just me and i can re spawn.

Infact The Walking Dead game is the only game i've ever found myself scared while playing and that was because i was fearing for clementine safety.

Now i personally dont like Dead Space 3 because its lost its survival game play in favor of a third person shooter style.

For this reason i wont be buying it.

You have never let yourself beleive that the game is real. You see it from the perspective that your in your living room with a controller in your had... to truely get lost and immersed in it and feel like your the dude on this space ship... and not that its a bunch of polygons.. thats what you would need to get scared. You cant feel fear if you go in beleiving nothings real. Suspend your disbeleif.

Thats probably why every horror game is turning into an action shooter. People with short attention spans who are numb to everything and get bored if the pace of the game slows down to make u think or become a real part of it.

Now that I think of it.. thats also the reason that every horror movie these days is turning into GORE porn. They stop being scary and start becoming about action or extreme violence. Nothing scary about extreme violence... were numb to that.

I never ever said i didnt like dead space. I love it, i still play it.

I play and enjoy lots of horror games and watch lots of horror movies. I enjoy them even though im not scared by them.

I never said i was bored while playing them and i never said i want them to be more fast past. I simply said i dont get scared playing them.

Dont make me out to be part of the problem with games becoming just copy and paste action.

I support new ips and smaller developers as much as possible
JaredH  +   1106d ago
Although a lot of people on this site don't agree with you, I don't, I think the average gamer does. The series is getting more and more popular with Dead Space 3 having more preorders than 2. And 2 shipped a little less than 2 million units its first week. However, it could be Dragon Age 2 all over again with sales dropping off if the game is bad.
Kurylo3d  +   1106d ago
Id say that because dead space 2 was so popular and people are interested in continuing the story. If this one is as bad as people are saying it is.. the sales will probably lower. Look what happened to resident evil 6. People hated 5, and they continued that formula and six sales lowered drastically in comparison. Now there talking about the possibility of rebooting resident evil. lol..
DA_SHREDDER  +   1106d ago
The only thing missing from this series is a trilogy disc, including Extraction. The demo was friggin sick and also, I can't wait to see how they did in making Army of Two TDC.
Donnieboi  +   1106d ago
Why not just play other types of 3rd person shooters? Why should a HORROR game be softened up for people who are scared of horror?

if you still want dead space 3 but don't want to support EA buy it used
Murad  +   1106d ago
I don't even suggest buying it used. I suggest buying it new for approximately 8 dollars, which is how much I spent on Dead Space 2
CYBERHATER  +   1106d ago
I don't like EA or Origin but Dead Space is the only thing they have got going for them in my book. So they better not screw it up.

I was never going to buy DS3 anyway. Even then after playing the first one it was refreshing to have such a scary Survival Horror title, and it was sad to hear DS3 "sell out" to the casual/action crowd

At least in my case my keyboard has more strength than my wallet. Though combining the two often proves to be the strongest

Dead Space 1 was a terrific game but when I played 2 it felt like the direction was already changing from what I loved from one. I got half way through two and just stopped, didn't like at all.

Now seeing and playing the demo for 3 the direction has definitely changed. I will still give it a try and put it in my Gamefly que but it's definitely not a must have.
Kurylo3d  +   1106d ago
you cheated yourself in not finishing two. The story and the ending kicked ass.
maniacmayhem  +   1106d ago
Damn, it just got boring real quick. I might have to go back.
first1NFANTRY  +   1106d ago
Reason why i bought DS1 was because of the horror and tension. I won't be getting this game. Maybe in a few years at $2 hahaha. I speak with my wallet!

On a better note I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE LAST OF US!!!

Third party game are really becoming mediocre to me. I feel like i've seen and played them all cause their always the same turd recycled
FarCryLover182  +   1106d ago
few years at $2?? Ehh. Probably not, but you could get it for $19.99 in a month probably.

Neo Nugget  +   1106d ago
Eh, I don't know if I'll go so far as to not buy it at all. Dead Space is one of my favorite franchises, and I no doubt will enjoy 3 to a degree. I enjoy it for the experience it brings to me as a gamer.

What I don't have trouble not buying is the micro-transaction DLC.
KwietStorm  +   1106d ago
Well EA says they have to change it to "appeal" and make money. If I don't buy this new iteration, it'll either be even more action next time, or another scrapped franchise. Damned if you do, damned if you don't, but I won't be getting this either way. Dead Space is one of my favorite new IPs this generation, but they're intent on doing exactly what Capcom did to Resident Evil.

I expect a low user score average on Metacritic if fans are truly upset about Dead Space 3.
phantomexe  +   1106d ago
I'll speak with my wallet by opening it. How do you guys know it's all action when i'm preety sure there are no reviews yet. They been saying it's still the same old dead space in single player. The demo wasn't all action unless you played something i didn't. You guys are over reacting again......shocker
