The thing that struck me in the quick-look is because of there only being simply just one ammo type once you craft one bad-ass gun like for instance brad had that rocket launcher thing in the quick-look why would you ever want to build anymore guns? Looking from the outside in here that seems like one of the biggest head scratchers for me.

Because you unlock better parts to build a more bad ass gun or you experiment and find out that there are better bad ass guns out there.

i have not played through the whole thing, and dont really want to include any spoilers in this thread, but i am on chapter 5, and i think im starting 6 but there hasnt been anything that stands out and makes me actually want to continue playing. the story seems garbage and the pc version im playing looks jaggy as hell, and im running it max. idk, just curious if anyone else isnt finding it too good, considering i loved the first 2

I can see where you're coming from but I urge you to keep playing. The problem with Dead Space 3 is that it is a considerably larger game than the other two and because of that, it has some pacing issues. Dead Space 2 started off with action up the wazoo and stayed strong throughout, DS3 however has a good opening where (minor spoilers) you're escaping and it's action packed and then you get on a ship and boom, you're stranded and the game slows down completely and presents you with fetch quests. But, once you finish those and land on the ice planet (chapter 7 I believe.) the game becomes more daring, the story becomes more interesting and the landscapes and setpieces stand out more.

Not only that, but you also get more bench parts that make the weapon creation aspect more fun. So, stick it out for a little while longer and you'll start to love the game, I'm sure.

I agree with him completely. If games want to be taken seriously and branch out as an artform, there should be more serious games that tell better stories. That doesn't mean that I want all of my games to be as deep as the walking dead or give me an engrossing experience like Silent Hill 2, no. I think that having a few inventive games per year amongst the sea of fun but ultimately forgettable games is really a shame, it would help the industry grow if this was reversed.

I think the best point that Cage brought up was this. It really gets his point across.

"When you think about it, many games have absolutely nothing to say. They are quite empty, they are just here to make have fun and that's cool. That's enough for most people and that's fine. There is nothing against that but that's a toy. Can we have games that have meaning?"

Let's face it, a majority of people who tanked the metacritic score didn't even play it. Are you telling me that a 2 or a 1 out of 10 for a critically acclaimed game is honest? People look on metacritic before they buy, if you don't believe that you're lying to yourself.

@KaosAngel: Don't speak for me. You don't know what I'm saying at all.

Roger Ebert gave plenty of great, critically acclaimed movies one star. So have other legitimate critics.

And he does speak for you. The type of argument you laid out is called an appeal to authority, and it's logical fallacy 101. People are entitled to their own opinions and they are indeed legitimate, even if someone more official or of higher standing has one that's the opposite. Also most of them have played the free demo and are entitled to speak about gameplay issues they have, so yes they do have experiences with the game allowing to have a valid opinion as well.

What does that have to do with anything? That's the word of mouth of one critic not a mass of angry whining fans. Also, judging an entire game based on a small demo is a bit of a stretch in my opinion.

@golguin: I'm sure you're talking about coladuty which is in no way even on the same scale in terms of sales compared to this game. The sales for CoD are practically obligatory at this point.

Good going fans, you killed the entire franchise.

That's a damn shame, I actually liked this game more than the other DMC's.

How are the fans to blame for not buying a game that doesn't cater to their interests? Why would you imply that fans should buy anything from anyone that slaps the name of their franchise on the box? It's funny that before the game came out the argument was "If you don't like it then don't buy it." They do that and now we get this "It's the fault of the fans for killing the franchise" bullshit? Make up your mind.

Because incredibly bad word of mouth and user metacritic scores coming from people who haven't even played the game affects game sales immensely. Couple that with the fact that when the pc version came out there were people who said "If you were to pirate any game, this would be the one lololol" and you've got a case of fans messing with sales.

Also, the if you don't like it then don't buy it argument should have been changed to "If you don't like it then don't condemn it for other people you twat" instead.

So the fans are responsible for the bad word of mouth that came from not liking the game and in order to keep criticisms about the game from hurting sales they should have kept quiet? Are you aware of what you're saying?

Let's face it, a majority of the people who tanked the metacritic score didn't even play it. Are you telling me that a 2 or a 1 out of 10 for a somewhat critically acclaimed game is honest? A lot of people look on metacritic before they buy, and when they see that schism, they simply glance over the game and don't buy it. If you don't believe that you're lying to yourself.

@KaosAngel: Don't speak for me. You don't know what I'm saying at all.

@Mrsignerman44: Maybe if Capcom stuck with making a sequel to the anime and DMC4 they wouldn't be in this mess.

Both of those properties don't appeal to me in the slightest.

Yeah, the franchise survived DMC 2, the franchise ain't dead yet by a lone shot.

And why should they care if they did? To them the franchise was already dead when news of how the reboot was going to play out came out. And by buying DMC 1-4 they didn't make a sacred oath to buy every game in the franchise nor is Capcom entitled to their money. If the franchise dies it's nobodies but Capcom's fault.

I'm certain that there was at least some shred of hope that they had that involved capcom "returning to DMC's roots" which is why they bought the HD collection on DmC's release date. That won't happen. Now, Ninja Theory is probably in a lot of shit because of this, there you go whiners, you might have killed another great company.

If he were to sell this in piecemeal he would definitely make more than half a million. Just look at all that rare stuff @.@

Force gun with a hammer hydraulic on the bottom.

It's the perfect panic weapon.
