EA Toned Down Dead Space 3 Because Of You

EA Toned Down Dead Space 3 Because Of You

The first and second games scared you too much, and you also wanted someone to play along with, so Dead Space 3 will have more action and less horror. It’ll also feature cooperative play.

The decisions were made after EA did some research and got the aforementioned results. The publisher’s marketing boss Laura Miele said they wanted to bring the game to more consumers, so they asked for feedback and the data don’t lie.

“We were hearing feedback that they love the thriller game, but it was pretty scary, and the obvious next step was that they wanted to play with someone. So we introduced co-op into the game,” she said.

“The horror of Dead Space is still all there. It’s still true to its roots and no less scary, but people felt far more comfortable playing it with someone else than they did doing it on their own.”

And here I was thinking you were brave.

    this is exactly what i cant understand though.
    i mean come on dead space has NEVER been a scary series!
    these pussies think dead space is scary, id hate to see their reactions to fatal frame, the suffering or even F.E.A.R!
    dead space has always been a psychological thriller.
    tenceful, suspenseful, nerve racking, plays with your mind.
    but never was it scary!

    what are you talking about LOL? you didn’t explain anything besides saying fatal frame & FEAR were scarier than dead space, which they are not. hell not even Resident Evil Or Silent Hill are scarier than dead space actually they aren’t scary in general.
