So, they added a tag-a-long character and took out the horror elements? They should have called it Resident Evil 5 instead of Dead Space 3.

Genre switch + Pile all your annoying monetization gimmicks on without decreasing the base price + Army of 2 nonsense in my single-player franchise = you're gonna lose some customers, man.

//That said, that they weren't gonna outright cancel it should have been obvious well before the correction was issued.  If they didn't have big names to tag onto shiatty games to wring dying-franchise revenue from, EA's entire business model would fail.  They're basically doing with video game studios what Bain Capital did with everything else.

I like the first one.  The second one not so much.  Passed on the third.

scottydoesntknow: and that EA told Visceral to bring in a wider audience than previous series entries did by focusing more on action than horror.

Dead Space Fans: "I really like the horror aspect.  Makes it stand out from being another generic sci-fi shooter."

EA: "Great news!  We're turning it into a generic sci-fi shooter!"

Dead Space Fans: "Pass."

Generic Shooter Fans: "Bro, I played the first one.  It's totally farkin' slow and there's no killstreaks.  Plus, the story is all weird and shiat.  Don't get it."
