Feedbackula - Dead Space 3 Horrorgasm
- Feb 8, 2013
Dead Space 3 is out, and not everybody's happy about it. Johnny steps into Isaac's sweaty suit to see what you've been saying about EA's latest.
seriously, micro transactions in a Full retail game is ludicrous. DLC in my opinion is terrible for consumers but I can deal with it by not buying it. Micro-transactions on the other hand are NOT except-able especially when you bought the fucking game!!! items that are already in the game should NEVER be purchased with real money EVER! the only situations when micro-transactions are Okay is in a Free to play game and not in a $60 triple A title. Thank god for Indie games.
I have to agree with the guy who said DS1 wasn't scary. Throwing 10 enemies at you a second, from the first 10 minutes of the game onwards, gives no time to build any atmosphere. Alan Wake was much scarier than DS1, because it was creepy and didn't try to constantly just shock you.
RE6.. I've been playing Resident Evil since the second game, and even I gotta say, it's a hassle to play. Honestly, I just want to experience the story and have as little trouble as I can. Hence, Amateur for me. I feel like I wuss, but running out of ammo constantly and having to shoot dogs 3 or more times IN THE HEAD to kill them is just silly. Oh, and that camera.. God awful.
I just discovered this feature and it's awesome. I'm looking forward to the next one!
(P.S.) Johnny, I don't think you're so bad in Start/Select. Also, what happened to Danny? I hear his voice, but see no new content!
It's simple. If the franchise has to drastically move away from the formula associated with it's greatness, then rename the bloody franchise. Do a spin off like how Metal Gear recently did Rising, or Final Fantasy did Crystal Chronicles, Metroid did Prime, Sonic did Adventure / Shadow the, and in fact even how Dead Space itself did Extraction! It's not rocket science
Excuse my Johnny, you owe me a Feedbackula for the 15/2/13 where is it at mate? Am i blind, or just had one too many brews?
No Feedbackula this week? Say it aint so! This has been my favorite friday show for months. Not only is it the best original program on the interwebs, it is also better than any of the being a trashy kardashian reality crap shows currently polluting cabale and sattelite. So here is to hoping Jonneh is back next week trolling the gamespot trolls as only he can!
wheres the new feedbackula? im having withdrawl symptons at the lack of feedbackula and random encoutners
Guess we couldn't be arsed with feedbackula this week. Grimes must have been playing at The Good Mixer.
@Jooof Hold up. You realise that Gamespot is providing these videos for free, right? You aren't losing anything if they can't or don't make an episode in any particular week. You aren't entitled free entertainment. Maybe they didn't have the content this week. Maybe Johnny is sick or something, so they chose not to film an episode this week. Maybe technical difficulties delayed the episode.
@Verenti @Jooof Thanks for that, I will go and think about what I have done and re-evalute my life. You may also have noticed in the past that when Johnny wasn't there someone else did it. I appreciate it's free and I can remind you of that when Gamespot UK ceases to exist due to it getting rid of all the things people loved about it and replaced it with podcasts / videos where the only job of the presenters seems to be to tell you how cool they are, how they have a better job than you and what a group of morons its readers are.

I'll never understand why they change sequels so much. The reason I want to buy one is because I loved the game that came before it. I want to pick up part 2 exactly where part 1 left off. I don't want completely new characters and worlds. I came to love the game for the combination of characters and worlds. To me it would take several games before the developers ran out of ideas and therefore game getting stale. That's what is so nice about uncharted. All are just new adventures for the characters you used in the previous one. Just add a few new ones and add more story.
Instead of Dead Space 3 this is really Lost Planet 3. It just has some dead space aspects to it. I'll just keep Dead Space 2 and be happy with that.
Loved the video! I have to say, I'm still going to get DS3, and am glad to see that it's getting fairly decent ratings. One game that I am already regretting (waiting to pick up my pre-order for) is Aliens Colonial Marines. I'll get it, and hope that it's better than the reviews given it, but.....agh....but that's another game.
Come to think of it, I still need to beat DS2.....grrr.....must dig it back out.
but lipstick on a pig and so on,,msolty your accents and pressure on words and speaking in captials,,that made it funny
He is clearly saying that horror won't last this long because you had already experienced it before. As you can see the game was not built to horrify more than to entertain you with more and more action.
With an addition of co-op and the sense of Issac having casual reactions and his handling of those events shows that it was not intend to scare you at all. Also, I'm sure this was clearly intended to be the Final sequel.
I agree with the comment that says not even Dead Space 1 was scaring. It has had a couple of moments, true, but nothing major. To me it has always been an action game since the beginning. Even Batman Arkham Asylum had scarier moments. Actually, now that I think about it: Demon's Souls feels much more survival horror than Dead Space or the latter Resident Evil games!
There's only so many times you can add sequels without the game becoming stale or repetitive. Taking it in a new direction is going to add to the fan base and sell the earlier titles to those who weren't interested in the game initially so its not surprising developers are doing this. Big concern is the micro transactions and whether developers actually generate revenue from this as we could start to see these moving from the fringe to core gameplay mechanics! Chargeable dlc I'm sure is always a planned thing for developers (and not entirely a bad thing as they have to make money to continue publishing) but offering it so close to release is getting a bit brazen so unsurprisingly consumers are not happy. Though I do wonder how many gamers are actually bothered about which developer releases a game as for me it's a case of ill buy a game I like the look of regardless of publisher and review score!
1 ? 2 > 3. MT's are evil. Personally I find is extremely distasteful and insulting to gamers that EA/ Visceral would actually include a real money store RIGHT IN the game.
@CraigNinten The 8gb of RAM is the one thing that will be plenty for game specific consoles for some time. Anything more than that would be nice for show...but do you really need more than that to make a cutting edge game look and run good when well optimized (which they all are.
I know this was addressed in the show, but I think it is a legitimate object of a complaint when a publisher/developer compromise the integrity of an IP for accessibility and marketability. Too often we see a game receive acclaim for being a solid example of a great niche genre become popular and then "dumbed down" so the next iteration can be more accessible to people who are not smart enough/willing to put in the time to develop the skill necessary to enjoy the series progenitor. Not that I want to compare Dead Space to Shakespeare, but it's like Shakespeare. Given that Shakespeare was perfectly understandable to his contemporaries, but Shakespeare "translated" into modern English loses its charm. The magic of Shakespeare is not only the message, but the means therethrough it is transmitted. The text informs the speaker. Thusly, the horror is not only the genre of Dead Space, but the spirit. If you tell the same story with a different medium, you change the soul of the work. Constitution matters, and those who sat in bated anticipation of a worthy sequel feel themselves deceived and rightly lash their tongues to work their venom.
As for microtransactions? A publisher who makes changes to games that do not serve to better the game, but to rob fools of their petty cash? Of course such transgressions are not borne lightly. Is it greed, pure and simple, and it is directed squarely at us. Would you not be angry at a friend who tried to pry every last penny from you? If you would deal so with one you might call a friend, I can hardly accept that you might deal with the multi billion dollar corporation with more charity. It is the cunning thief whose theft is seen with legitimacy.
Micro-transactions are options =/ Just like buying HBO for your cable, or spending a little extra money for life-time warranties, or getting cup-holders for you car....it's all optional and you don't really need any of those things, so if you don't want it you don't have to buy it.
@ceromaster @Verenti This argument has been parroted many times and it's a really stupid argument. Simply keeping it there means people are bound to buy it at some point or the other which makes the company money which means they are encouraged to put such features in future titles. Leeching people of further cash after having paid a full price for a game is unacceptable.
@aniforprez I agree. EA are just preying on Joe Gamer's sense of impulse, which is why they don't have it as a tab in the log-in screen, but right on the in-game work bench. One can plainly see that more work went into the work bench cash scheme than any other part of the game!
