If You Don’t Like Dead Space 3, Speak With Your Wallet
Not your keyboard

Dead Space 3 is still the same Dead Space we know and love, albeit with the inclusion of auto and semi-automatic weapon wielding Unitologist soldiers and Necromorphs.
Yes, the game now features a very basic cover system, and various intense action pieces which are fleshed out through the game dependent on the story.
These have not been included for the sake of including them because Visceral and EA wish to ruin the Dead Space franchise, but instead as producer on Dead Space 3 John Calhoun puts it in our interview which you can read here:
Other things like weapon crafting and other features, these are just ways of innovating and making sure that Dead Space isn’t stale. When people buy this game, we want them to make sure they get a good value. There’s a lot that’s new and everything that you love is still intact.
After playing through the first three hours of the title, the game still retains the same basic functions that made Dead Space such a great new IP when it was released in 2008. What do you think?

OXCGN’s Dead Space 3 Demo Impressions

“Why won’t you just DIE?!”
This is probably a sentence that you’ll be thinking to yourself over and over again when you get a chance to play the Dead Space 3 demo. Or, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be screaming it at the TV in a mad panic just trying to stay alive yourself.
The demo gives you two options to whet your appetite before the 7th of February when the game is actually released.
You can go at it alone and give the single player a try, or play the same section of the game with a buddy – or in my case, some random stranger on Xbox Live.
Is this the Dead Space we’ve been waiting for?
