411mania - So I finally got around to playing Dead Space 3. Having got the Limited Edition version on sale at GameStop, I also decided to go ahead and buy the Awakened story DLC as well to play it all in one go and get as full an experience as possible. Certainly the franchise is unarguably in a bit of turmoil at the moment. There have been conflicting reports of the franchise’s demise. No surprise with the way game companies, publishers and developers, alike have been dropping like flies. It seems big publishers are also putting lofty expectations on titles that simply cannot be met as well. But that’s a whole other debate. Dead Space 3 has itself received some of a mixed response, so let’s get to it.
