Dead Space was... WAS... a great story and great game. DS1 and 2 were awesome games. I had high hopes for DS3 but nope... more and more in the gaming world... hell, the world at large... corporatization of almost ANYTHING quickly ruins a good thing. Same with Dead Space. Corporate Blue Suited morons don't listen to fans of the game, they just crunch numbers, look at what's popular in the gaming world and copy it no matter that nobody wants it or that it will ruin a good game. Weapons customization is a good example. It might be popular in RPG games at large but it's nothing but a total bother in DS3, unnecessary and completely ruins the flow of the game. The weapons in DS1 and 2 were fine.
A even better example is something that is pissing me off more and more... I've never seen a game get so lazy in development and just copy and paste SO many environments over and over and over. Almost every side mission looks exactly the same. I swear me and my co-op partners are constantly getting turned around and confused as to where we are. Every 5 minutes one of us is saying "wait... haven't we been here already? Are we going around in circles again??" You can all blame the Corporate Greed mentality at EA for this crap. This is a prime example of "hey look we can spend a lot less time in development just by copying and pasting all these map areas over and over and just make the game APPEAR large... who cares if it gets confusing or tedious? We've only had 3 years to develop this game, not nearly enough time to make every area unique like we did in DS1 and 2. AND we can STILL ask for $60 a pop and make out like bandits!!!"
And has anyone seen the total number of DLC's?? More for this game than any other game I've ever seen. Digusting. I won't buy ANY DLC for this game no matter how cool it is.
Electronic Arts = Corporate Greed Run Amok and Destroying a Great Game.
