Dead to most, but it still can be revived with a good horror game like the first one.

MEsoJD2056d ago

Games that give you lots of firepower aren't scary... I though DS2 was much more entertaining than the first. Silent Hill 2, Amnesia, etc are horror games...

I predict the next dead space to have necro-morphs with frickin' laser beams attached to their frickin' heads.

dont forget the grenades LMAO

I don't why it isn't to most DS fans, they messed up the third game completely, it just one little mistake but something Capcom already screwed up on twice. I mean you can keep saying "It's not a bad game that much" but in the end it's still bad in some way...why settle for an average game when the past games were amazing

I think it still might be dead...that or they'll try again with one last game and will be it the most over the top action game ever....just like what Capcom did with RE6, instead of fixing RE5s problems they tried even harder to appeal to a bigger audience.

Messed it up completely? Man, that's a stretch. I'm still playing it and loving the hell out of it also. The game is technically astounding and gameplay wise, there's very little fault here. It may not be as scary as the first but neither was the second one.

Dead Space 3 in no way compares to the butchery of the Resident Evil franchise, the latest one which I've seen selling for as low as $10.

MysticStrummer2056d ago

Messed it up completely? No. Took some steps back? Yes. It's still an above average game.

DeadSpaced2056d ago

"Completely"? That's not entirely accurate. I found myself enjoying it.

JaredH2056d ago (Edited 2056d ago )

It is no where close to the change of the Resident Evil franchise. IMO the action segments in Dead Space 3 are just as actiony as the segments in Dead Space 2 like the planet fall, tram and the necromorph boss fight with explosive canisters.

ehh, it happen to SOCOM tried to plea the masses they failed, now its DS turn


People have you played DeadSpace3. Its like the first game but bigger. Its amazing. I've enjoyed every moment in the game.

MysticStrummer2056d ago

I enjoyed it but it's not as good as the first two. People are right to complain a bit, but as usual the whining is way over the top.

r212056d ago

Its good but not good as DS1 or DS2. Id rank it last.

That means nothing. Look at their wording, you cannot cancel something the doesn’t exist.

Alos882056d ago

Yep, I guess it's just "an important IP" that they'll never make another game for.

I have lost faith in the franchise. It will not be hyped for the next game until I have played it. Same goes with Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Call of Duty, Final Fantasy and many, many more.

Infernostew2056d ago

What's wrong with Metal Gear?

-GametimeUK-2056d ago

I feel MGS has to redeem itself after MGS4. I thought the game was fine for the first 2 acts, but after that it was just a chase mission, boss fights, action scenes and walking past robots. WTF? I prefer sneaking past guards like in the other Metal Gear games. I just found the whole thing after act 2 VERY disappointing, especially after the standards set by MGS3.

TXIDarkAvenger2056d ago

You must be playing a different MGS4 cause the one I played is by far one of the best games I've ever played...ever.

" I prefer sneaking past guards like in the other Metal Gear games. I just found the whole thing after act 2 VERY disappointing, especially after the standards set by MGS3. "

you know octocamo existed in MGS4 for a reason the leather coat was just for show mostly.

Number-Nine2056d ago

I wish EA and Capcom would cancel themselves.

Topshelfcheese2056d ago

Thats a very sad opinion. You want 10,000 people to lose their jobs, just because you don't like the games they make. News Flash, you don't have to buy them...How about you grow up a little.

Kratoscar20082056d ago

Im sure those people would find job easily, EA is killing their creativity.

SilentNegotiator2056d ago

That's capitalism. People mess up and create several products that don't make money (thus not serving enough people or not properly planned) have their companies shrink or die, other companies are grown or created and new jobs become available under more competent companies.

EA's policies are having terrible effects on other studios. If a big, terrible company like EA shut down or greatly shrank, their policies (which turns out, don't work all that well) would become less popular, and might lead to a more stable game industry all over. You might end up with way MORE job positions.

There's nothing cold-hearted about wanting a detrimental corporation to close.

Topshelfcheese2056d ago

Its completely cold hearted when it doesn't effect you one bit. I don't like Apple, I think they are way overpriced for what you get, but I don't want them to close.

There is nothing detrimental about EA, just the fact that you don't like their games. I'm sorry, but that is an extremely childish view on if a company should close or not.

Fifa and Madden alone prove that they have customers that want their games. Fifa sells around 15 million units a year and has competition from another game.

How about you turn your hatred to the Oil industry who keep posting higher and higher record profits year after year.

SilentNegotiator2056d ago (Edited 2056d ago )

EA's push for DLC, microtransactions, pre-orders, etc has spread like a fire. They don't work and usually take away content from the base games.

That last comment of yours shows your incredible ignorance. You know nothing about any of my views just because I explained how capitalism works and that bad companies shrinking is a good thing. What makes you think I don't dislike oil companies and their unnecessary government subsidies? What makes you think I would discuss non-gaming companies on a game website over game companies?

And furthermore, I didn't say I don't like their games. Lying about the content of another should be a politician.
