Dead Space 3: 20 Minutes of Gameplay Footage
Thoughts on footage:
It looks like something set in the same universe as Dead Space - rather then just a straight out "part 3". If that makes sense >_<
I love the co-op, I really hope it supports local co-op.
Without the horror atmosphere to support it, the gun-play and overall combat looks pretty midcore to be the main focus, like a poor mans Gears of War, especially when fighting the human baddies, and I know it was just a demo but that was some dumb shit enemy AI.
The quick time events reminded me of Uncharted, as though the Devs were trying to incorporate even more "cinematic experiences" which does not equate to "more action." When will you realize this DEVS!
Hate the universal Ammo idea. I loved having to manage ammo in the previous games, in fact that's how I came to love the Ripper in part one and the javelin gun in part 2, and I saved all my plasma cutter ammo for boss fights.
I also hate how all you pretty much do to take out necros is pump em full of bullets, Strategic dismemberment was a huge selling point for me in Dead Space.
Disappointed with the shift in atmosphere as well, but I think I can learn to love it.
But seriously; local co-op will make me very happy despite all the shitty changes.
