(continued from previous page) ...nothing but complete faith that the team over at Visceral Games will deliver an experience that we’ll be talking about for years to come.
Dead Space 3 will be released in February, 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

I loved the first game, it's in my top 3 of this generation. The second one was good, but they basically made a corridor shooter out of it. Walk down the hall, get to the room, shoot the necromorphs there, repeat 200 times. Unlike the first game, I never felt as if there was any reason to go from point A to point B. And the story was plain awful - just filling in a bunch of backstory about what happened before the game started. None of it affected what I was doing in any way. I'm much, MUCH more interested in Lost Planet 3, which actually looks like a horror game, not this co-op crap with enemies shooting back at you.

You couldn't have expressed my thoughts and feelings of dead space better Don! I too was very sad when I read in my GameInformer about Co-op being real in DS3. The game is now looking too much like Lost Planet! I hope that the single player story is still scary but we'll see when February rolls around. Now my worst nightmare is coming true Dead Space 3 is actually Resident Evil 5.2.

You both clearly know Dead Space. I'm glad I could speak to fellow Dead Space fans such as you guys. But listen, it's really not that bad.
Visceral is great at what they do; I'm sure we'll still get scared at some points. Just not as scared.

I have to agree with JackC ad PSGamer28... it's sad the game is going in this direction... it seems to have lost all drive for the "mythology" of the game that made DS1 soooo good... DS2 lost a lot of the story and scare aspects and I felt it ran short because the developers spent time on the lousy co-op... And I guess I am just naive in that I don't see why all the hype and glory about co-op, whether drop in drop out or otherwise... six months after release there may be no one playing DS3 online anymore, but I will always have my disk... so I really don't get it... I just hope they don't sacrifice the single player experience that is way more long standing for the fleeting co-op... I really don't get it...

PSU's comment system is atrocious. I just commented on another article, and it was posted onto this one. In fact, the point of this comment was cos it wouldn't let me remove the previous one that PSU wrongfully posted onto this article, so I was forced to edit it as I couldn't delete it completely.

Ah man, I hope it's still scary. People are right to compare this to Resident Evil 5, it certainly seems to be going in that direction. I hope Ellie survives this too. If only they would've kept Glen Scolfield, he wouldn't approve of this nonsense. But, here's hoping that the game still remains true to the series.

That's what I was searching for. Your blog is the first one where I found an article on this important topic! I will save this one because it is really awesome. Oh and I will show it to my friends too. Thanks a lot for publishing this one here!
