No hope left for Dead Space 3

Let this be a lesson to you

Thank you for your time and attention, etc and so on

In all seriousness though, this is a complete fucking disgrace, is ANYONE still looking forward to this game? What did you think of the Demo?
Wait... wait wait wait... in singleplayer?
Lol, sound the alarm for Dead Space II. Never before have I seen a publisher give in to greed and the mainstream status quo so fast. Dead Space is a modern classic, and they absolutely ruined it by giving in to the DLC/Shooter temptations. That's just what the market wants, more shooters.

Because we all know that more than anything Dead Space 2 needed was multiplayer, right?

....right? guys?
Did anyone even bother playing DS2 multiplayer? I must confess, I never even tried it, even though I played through single-player..

Same here.
At least it looks like you can earn the same equipment in game without spending money. Rather dumb idea though.

I played the original Dead Space and enjoyed it a lot (very good sound design), I just wish it had been more horror/survival less action.

Is the second game any good? I could be tempted to give it a go.

I remember buying DS2 used for a cheap price for my PS3 and when I was starting up the game I was like "Why the fuck is there multiplayer here?"

Curious to actually try it out, I only then, found out that this multiplayer option requires an "Online pass" which costs 10 Euros, which is the price I paid for the actual gamedisk with the case and manual

You can figure out the rest for yourself

Same for me. Played the SP, left it there and that was perfectly fine.
Why do I get the feeling this game is going to be more well received then Resident Evil 6...thus causing outrage such as accusing reviewers of hypocrisy.

....even I think this game is looks better than Resident Evil 6.

Probably because it wouldn't be much of an achievement. I know Metascores must be taken with a grain of salt, but RE6's score isn't exactly hard to top.

Also, RE is a franchise that refuses to die even though most people would rather it did. I don't think Dead Space 3 will have points deducted for overstaying its welcome.

The only thing I want from Resident Evil are HD remakes of Resident Evil 1 Remake, Resident Evil 0, and Outbreak file 1 and 2 (which was underrated imo)

meh. publishers have been selling shortcut DLCs for years, and not just EA. there have been plenty of games, singleplayer or multiplayer, in which you could purchase better in-game equipment for real money (The Godfather, most Need for Speed installments, BF3, Assassin's Creed III, and Codemasters have been selling cheatcodes for over a decade now).

so now instead of purchasing a shortcut DLC in your favourite storefront (Origin, PSN, XBL) you purchase the gear directly in the game. and it's still just as optional as it's always been.

Assassin's Creed III had exactly the same system, and it was a fantastic game. i see no issue.

yeah, that's why the series sells so badly... oh, wait...

I actually really enjoyed the second game. Certainly a bit more action-y than the first, but I felt that it was done well.
Because EA always plays nice and never did anything against common logic and decency. To be honest this was fishy for me the moment I heard about coop...you don't put coop in nice horror game like this. It automatically loses huge percentage of the souls of the game...the scariness I mean.
