This morning, on Twitter, me…
This afternoon, Lee Money, formerly of this parish and now Game Director at EA tweets…
Now why on earth would EA be shoving an iconic monument from a seemingly dead franchise (pun intended) in their lobby? It is not precisely the nicest point to appear at as it is swimming in a pool of blood so it is absolutely not been erected for aesthetic motives.
A statue from Mirror’s Edge or Anthem would certainly appear nicer, and at least a small much more relevant, Dead Space developers Visceral Games have been butchered just after the Star Wars game they have been operating on got cancelled with the studio closing down on October 17, 2017. Erecting statue from series that floundered on the third title, lost a shed load of funds and from developers that have been closed is quite odd and rather morbid.
Unless… can we dream? A new Dead Space? Hell, the old Dead Spaces – but not the third 1 – would be beautiful in a remastered type.
We loved the original Dead Space when it came out, which was in the days ahead of we even place scores on evaluations, but we did give Dead Space two a huge 9/10. “New IPs should really be applauded when they’re of this type of calibre – expertly made, genuinely revolutionary and, if you are ready to do a number of run-throughs, good worth for funds, ” we mentioned.
The franchise went on to spawn a motion handle game for Wii and PS Move, and an IOS game which we also scored 9/10, “Dead Space iOS is no reduce-down rush job it is a right game, with its personal exclusive story, an vital obtain for any iOS owner,” we gushed.
There have been also Dead Space animated motion pictures which which I believed have been actually great, and a series of Dead Space books which expanded the mythology.
Generally, there was a lot of Dead Space.
Regrettably issues went awry with the third game that brought in multiplayer, as at the time each and every game was obtaining multiplayer jammed in to it even even though it was actually negative notion. It was also criticised for obtaining a season pass and micro transactions, more than £40 of them at launch, most of which sped up how speedy you could upgrade your character in game.
“Yes, they’re optional, but the way the bot packs are worded suggests that if you want to get the most out your scavenger (the way to choose up sources for your in-game weaponry and so on) you will will need to invest a bit of money,” we noted at the time.
Having said that, ahead of we get also excited we should really possibly point out that even though Lee says it is from Dead Space it does not appear like the monument from the game, but it does have “Survival Horror” written up the side, so it may well be anything else.
UPDATE: Lee requirements a kick in the knackers, it is not Dead Space.
