Now that dude is an E3 Mystery. Just sayin.

Sweeet.

Probably as close as I'm going to get to that quest....

Edited by big_jon

Yes

I hope they push it back, I want them to have the tme necessary to polish the game.

Brad Space 3.

I'm sorry...

Posted by Hilts

Looks like they're moving away from strategic dismemberment and moving more towards traditional weapons. Like Brad, I hope they dont loose all the tension and atmosphere and end up making a Gears clone.

@Oldirtybearon: I've been thinking that was Brad wearing the pink safety gear. Hard to tell though.

Lovin the Brad.

I had the answer, but then you used 'is' twice in a sentence incorrectly, so now you'll just have to keep wondering what that hell he is.

Is.

So rotating plasma cutter confirmed?

The 'if that's what you want...' comment seemed to throw for a bit of a loop

Does kind of look like that, doesn't it?

It's creepy. I don't like staring at it but I can't stop.

that rep is the worst..

Great interview by Brad, and great answers by Dave Woldman, especially "If that's what you want, you can do it".

@Lord_Pent: Mole people.

Can't wait to play me some more Dead Space! One of the coolest scifi universes around, and it seems like they will be fleshing out that universe even more, which interests me greatly!

Posted by Scrawnto

Dodging those questions, erryday.

I like that Brad tried to ask the weapon combo/ammo question twice, even if he didn't get much of an answer. My guess is that it's going to be some sort of mix and match system, with horizontal and vertical plasma cutters as separate options.

Posted by MordeaniisChaos

Dude being interviewed was refreshingly sharp.

Posted by Jayzilla

I love how the dude completely avoided the ammo question.

Posted by tourgen

He ignored Brad's question and and went into his BS co-op game mode script. Brad circled back around but only got some pretty weak answers out of the guy on the weapons and ammo. Thanks Brad for trying to squeeze some info out of the interview.

Posted by Jellybones

It's sounding like you can customize and combine weapons how you choose, which could be interesting.

Posted by Whampire

I'm not thrilled about the direction of this installment. But I'll buy it anyway.

Posted by ArcLyte

well i feel a lot better about this game now. didn't want an AI buddy following me around constantly.

Edited by Tennmuerti

Thank you Brad for not being afraid to ask the harder more substantial questions and not pussyfooting around controversial issues. Much apreciated. Too bad about some of the PR dodging.

Great interview overall and this is a prime example why I keep looking forward to Brad's interviews.

Posted by CitizenJP

Hella excited.

Great interview Brad, made me a bit more clear on what this game is

Yeah, I was going to say the same :/

Posted by metalsnakezero

Good to know that Dead Space is still mostly Dead Space.

Posted by Wraxend

How many times did he say "the right thing"? Also don't think he got that Brad was referring to The Thing.

he.. killed my parents? with universal ammo. i don't know, brad's giving the interview of his life here, and getting nothing in return! nothing but defensiveness against what dead space has or hasn't become.

Posted by Milkman

This interview left me feeling a little bit better about the game. Please don't screw this up.

Agreed. I bet you'll be able to mix and match features from the different guns or just use the vanilla if you like it that way. You might want regular old plasma cutter, with regular and alt fire, or maybe switch out the vertical alt-fire for the force gun's regular shot, or the pulse rifle's alt-fire. You might make a combination weapon that can handle both close and long range, like a flamethrower mixed with a seeker. It seems like one of those annoying "oh we can't tell them about the guns yet, that has to wait for PAX!" marketing things. Just tell the people the information they need and you'll save yourself a bunch of drama.

I'm interested in how they scale the difficulty for co-op. Double the enemies on the screen, double their health? Maybe a bit of both? Spawn in elite mobs more often?

The ammo thing I'm happy for. I don't want to micromanage my inventory or have situations where I'm loaded up with shitty flame fuel but I don't have any Fucker Bullets for the Fucker Gun. Limit my ammo but don't give me situations where I can't pick up ammo for the gun I'm using because I'm full of contact energy.

With this iteration, the Dead Space franchise will finally live up to its name. ...Dead.

Posted by nickux

Really great interview, enjoyed this one a lot. I agree with what other people have already said- it seems that based on his answer to Brad's question about weapons is that players will be able to craft or customize their arsenal just as Isaac might do.

I think this producer said it best when he told Brad that having a co-op buddy chattering in your ear breaks the tension and feelings of horror in the game. Glad to see one of the makers of the game agrees with what I thought when they introduced co-op! I LOVE this series and it's unsettling to see them add elements that, to the best of my imagination, can't believe fans were pining for. I understand the desire to broaden the scope and mechanics of a series but I fear they're moving further away from what made Dead Space great in the first place.

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

Really worried about this title. Really really worried.

Posted by jasonefmonk

I think the implication is that there will be a crafting mechanic in Dead Space 3, which actually sounds like a good step forward. Why not strap the the Plasma Cutter to an Assault Rifle? You may sacrifice the ability to rotate the laser, but you don't have to switch weapons to change firing style.

The universal ammo idea is still kind of worrying. I enjoy how supply scarcity plays in to those games.

Posted by Zenthere

This game has EVERYTHING FOR EVERYONE!

Posted by wsowen02

Thanks Brad for asking the hard questions. Still worried about this game but I appreciate that you tried to get some answers.

Posted by SternOne

This guy seemed very defensive.

Posted by MattOnTheSite

Wow. Aside from all of the other taciturn PR answers, he seemed pretty averse to even mentioning The Thing.

Posted by kalmis

Not liking the direction this game is going.

Posted by Romination

>the infestation has gone global

>dead space takes place on multiple planets

Edited by NTM

When the guy said "if you want it, you can have it" in query to Brad's question about the Plama Cutter, I think what the guy was saying although somewhat subtle, is that you'll be able to take apart the weapons and customize them as you'd like, meaning you may have to sacrifice one thing for another, but still ending with your definitive choice; kind of like setting the gun up with different attachments. I understand everything they're doing with this game, and it's sounding very good; very excited for the game. Also, I have no idea why people are saying the rep is doing a bad job. Seems to me like he's doing it perfectly fine.

Posted by Monkeyman04

Man, I really wish that Isaac Clarke wasn't the main character for this game. I felt that his story was done with in DS2.

Posted by GunnBjorn

Well, I do agree with some of you that DS is heading into a more actien-oriented direction and leaning less so on the horror side. A bit in the vein of the later Resident Evil games. Which I find regrettable indeed. But other than that, Dave Woldman did a fine job in answering most of the questions. Sure, he executed some evasive maneuvers, since he can't give away too much. I totally understand. And Brad was well aware of that too.

Posted by smiddy

After this interview it actually sounds like the changes they've made aren't as terrible as they first sounded. Jump in/out co-op sounds like it will only interfere in the game if you want it to, like in a second playthrough.

And the combined weapons make sense since Issac would create his own, better weapons after fighting for so long.

Also, he said the plasma cutter would rotate if you wanted it too, which sounds like you'll have to make a decision at some point, perhaps a trade-off instead of some other ability.

Posted by darkdragonmage99

That guy stayed on his PR script amazingly well

Posted by The1manmoshpit

As long as they get rid of the cheap regenerating limb guys, I will be happy

Posted by s10129107

I appreciate how GIANT BOMB interviews developers at E3 without totally kissing everybody's ass. I cant stand coverage from other sites for that reason.
