Dead Space 3 has arrived, after months of waiting, we are finally going to find out if Visceral stayed true to the franchise. After playing the first 5 hours of the game in hard mode - and completing the first 7 chapters -, we can say that the game is a lot more faithful to the first episode than we thought it would be. Some will paradoxically bitch about the feeling of deja vu, but at least you'll get your share of dark corridors and low gravity sequences - something many feared would not make it to the final game after months of snowy media. Only when reaching chapter 8 will you discover Tau Volantis for a welcome change of scenery, or so it seemed since it's exactly when we stopped playing. Take a look at our 360 videos and find out if there is something for you in this third installment of the franchise.
@Sdarts: Gonna give that a look. DS3 sure felt totally different from 1 and 2. Very dissapointing for someone who loved the first 2 games. (54 minutes ago)
not every effin game needs a sequel (1 Hour ago)
But even though there are no official numbers, apparently SO failed to meet MS' expectations, it sold apparently quite goddamn bad.... sadly. (1 Hour ago)
Insomniac is interested in a Sunset Overdrive sequel and me too: [url] (1 Hour ago)
Not a surprise by any extent, but as far as I know, this is the first time a developer is so open about how a publisher's business decisions screwed a game and the franchise. (1 Hour ago)
Really great interview. Basically, EA made the decisions to turn DS3 into Action instead of Survival Horror, include microtransactions, have the big set pieces a la CoD, etc. It wasn't Visceral's. (1 Hour ago)
