You know, classic dead space. Like when it came out in the late 90's, now that was some real shit.

also, remember to crawl into the dark machine.

Should the trailer have more... walking around lost?! It's a third person shooter! And Need for Speed is still obsessed with driving these cars everywhere.

I expect them to stick closer to the things that made the original game so great. They used to talk a lot about the psychology of fear and how they were working to do more than just jump scares. Isaac was supposed to be a non-military mining worker who made weapons out of the equipment he had at hand. He was supposed to be kind of weak, on some level. It used to be a horror game.

I don't like seeing unique original IP's abandon the things that made them originally successful in favor of more generic wannabe action.

... And for a guy who 'used' to be weak, I sure killed a lot of fucking necromorphs in those first two games. Isaac was never weak or incapable of handling a cutter, if the original Dead Space had horseshit controls, it wouldn't be the classic it is. If we're two games later and Isaac is demonstrably worse at fighting these things than when he first discovered them then we have an issue. ...

This precisely. Isaac was an engineer with no combat experience at the beginning of the first game; by this point he's probably killed more than most career soldiers. He's been forced by circumstances to fight through literally hordes of these monstrosities, and he may not like it, but he should sure as hell know what he's doing by now. If he was still clumsy and uncertain about pulling the trigger when a necromorph is charging at him, it would make no sense.

Characters need to develop and grow lest they stagnate, or worse: become caricatures. Isaac is past the point of being the engineer with no combat experience, and to arbitrarily keep him as such just because it's what he started out as would be doing the character and the storytelling a disservice. This is a natural progression, and it makes infinitely more sense than Isaac being inexplicably unchanged by his experiences up to this point.

Besides which, as Brodehouse said, the controls have always allowed to you mow down necromorphs like a pro, regardless of what the story tells us about Isaac's competency in a combat situation, so saying that the horror hinged on him being a weak, non-military engineer doesn't hold much water. To me, Isaac being an engineer informed his personality, his perspective on events, and the story, but the horror came from atmosphere, sound design, visual aesthetic, and the constant threat of death.

I haven't really decided on this, yet. There isn't enough out on it. I'm hopeful, though.

I think Isaac has to die at the end, though. It's the only conclusion for his character that makes any sense to me.

What made the original games so great? So shooting disgusting looking necromorphs who launch themselves at you and shrug off your shots? Scenes where Isaac barely escapes with his life? Fluid controls, punchy feeling weapons, brilliant UI, and incredible sound design? What of those do you feel this doesn't have?

And ... making weapons out of the items at hand? You can buy an assault rifle from the store as soon as you get there. In fact, Dead Space 3 will be the _first_ time the player actually gets to make their weapons rather than be given it as part of the tutorial (cutter) or buy them from a store (everything else).

And for a guy who 'used' to be weak, I sure killed a lot of fucking necromorphs in those first two games. Isaac was never weak or incapable of handling a cutter, if the original Dead Space had horseshit controls, it wouldn't be the classic it is. If we're two games later and Isaac is demonstrably worse at fighting these things than when he first discovered them then we have an issue. Also, action is a genre, horror is a theme. They do not run in counterpoint or drink from the same well.

Lastly, unique and original ... the game is a System Shock homage. It was originally designed as a reboot before EA decided to forget trying to get the license from the holding company that has it. What made Dead Space successful is the art design, the fluid controls, the sound, the graphics, not Isaac being a useless idiot who doesn't know how to fire a gun. That's a complete historical revision. And trust me, I replay Dead Space almost yearly, it's my 2008 GOTY.

I've decided that I would be sold on Dead Space 3 if it was an insane hallucinogenic clusterfuck with no clear indication to what is really happening at any given point.

The only thing that scares me about Dead Space 3 is the fear it might be more an action game then a horror game. I really hope the current impression I have of that turns out to be false.

Dead Space 1 and 2 are action horror games. The genre is action, the theme is horror.@wjb said:

Thanks Inception for introducing loud, repetitive blaring noises into trailers. It was cool when you did it -- don't get me wrong -- but for the past couple years, I hear it at least once a month in a video game or movie trailer, and it sucks now.

The first one had really unique style and amazing sound design. The third one was mostly the same, but with a crappy difficulty curve at the end. This one adding co-op does little to excite me. Still curious, but I think I'll wait until it is cheap.

Everytime I see "BWWAHHHHHHHHH" typed out I think of Rabbids. Made this comment section and video description funnier.

I hope they get a chance to do something crazy with the co-op side. Like make it so that the player always looks like they're controlling Issac and then halfway or during parts of the story the other player's character is either separated or killed off.

Neither Dead Space nor its sequel were scary games. Too repetitive and boring imo. This one will probably be even worse.

How does it feel to be in the small minority of people who played the Dead Space games? I hope you feel proud.

You sound butthurt...

They're probably one of the most innovative and refreshing new IP's of this console cycle. Sorry they weren't scary or exciting for you. I'm sure people who want scary can just keep replaying Silent Hill 2 until their discs melt because nothing else can apparently come close to horror these days unless it has shitty puzzles and awful controls.

@sissylion: I completely disagree. Listen to any of the Dead Space soundtracks individually, Jason Graves does some absolutely amazing texture work. I've also looked at his scores and they are incredible, really nice guy to talk with as well.

Anyways, I wish this would have been the trailer they had shown at E3 - this is way better than any of those. Makes me have faith in this game again.
