Dead Space 3’s launch trailer echoes “The Thing”

DS3TRailer

Despite all the current negativity surrounding Dead Space 3’s mainstream appeal and pay-to-win micro-transactions, I’m pretty excited – because I know that even though the game might not scare the pants off of me, it’ll be a pretty damned solid action experience, made all the better by co-op. EA’s released the game’s launch trailer – and the biggest surprise is the absolute and complete lack of dubstep whatsoever.

The launch trailer features actual gameplay footage, a remix of Phil Collins’ in the air tonight (without any drum-playing gorillas) and gives us a a good look at the once-timid-engineer-turned-kickass-psychopath Isaac Clarke as played by Gunner Wright. Gears of War on Ice Dead Space 3 releases on February 8 (That’s NEXT WEEK!)  for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It’ll feature Kinect voice options and microtransaction system to help lazy gamers build better guns earlier on.

How will you be taking on the Necromorph menace; alone, or co-operatively?

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
