Dead Space 3 Co-op & Scariness

One of the reasons for adding co-op to the Dead Space series in Dead Space 3 is how "scary" the first two games are, EA tells MCV, though they are carefully parsing their language about this in not saying the new game will be any less scary than its forebears. "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," EA Gamesí marketing boss Laura Miele tells them. "The horror of Dead Space is still all there. Itís 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. "

Dead Space 1 and 2 are two of my all time favorite games, I'm somewhat ashamed to say. Everybody pans them for being more shooty than scary, etc. but regardless I still enjoyed the hell out of both of them. I'm playing through Dead Space 2 for the umpteenth time right now, when I'm not playing Warlock or D3 or Krater.

Guaranteed buy for me, possibly not day 1 if they start pulling a lot of same day DLC nonsense/weird pricing schemes. This series has traditionally gone on extreme sales on the PC a few months after release.(under 10 dollars for sure) I may end up waiting a little, but I will DEFINITELY get it. Many of my regular gaming buddies like the series too, and I'll probably do a little coop unless it is completely intolerable.

System Shock 2 vs any of the Dead Space games isn't exactly a fair comparison, imo. That was what, like 1999? Before the industry took off and games became ridiculous multi-million dollar boondoggles. Look to the indie scene for more frightening games(Amnesia).

*EDIT* oops a couple people already mentioned Amnesia, my bad
