Dead Space 3
PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360—February 5
Hi everyone, it’s your editor, John Teti, filling in for Steve Heisler this week. Longtime readers know what that means. It’s time for another edition of New Video Games As Explained By YouTube Comments. Today’s subject is Dead Space 3. Hmm. Some sort of sci-fi game? I’m not familiar with it. Please fill me in, YouTube commenters!
This game looks like its gonna suck 1st reason its sooooo unrealistic 2nd reason C.O.D is waaaaay better and i would play that any day over this peice of shit game
the cod series was a very good series i to an extent agree with you
FANBOY OVER HERE !!! ALERT WE GOTTA A GAY ASS FANBOY OVER HERE
People, focus. The topic is Dead Space 3.
That sucks, Isacc’s insanity really sold the game for me, all his cool visions and how he couldnt cope along with anything
Actually this was said a while ago, like months ago when the game didn’t have a trailer, but Issac might still have a bit more insanity inside him. Idk if it’s part of the game, but he might have a split personality because of DS and DS2
Okay, insanity level is debatable. What else?
For people who are complaining about the actionized horror….look at the relationship between the movies Alien, and Aliens. Remember how that turned out?
Dead Space 3 is what Resident Evil 6 should’ve been like, dark and gritty
Good news. Never dark OR gritty, please. Always both.
shut the fuck up you dumbass Crysis came out before the COD craze you dipshit
and COD is just a rip off of any FPS before it ?, shit Black is better then COD, so is medal of honor underground. or European assault
COD is the real piece of garbage, you shouldnt even be saying COD i s agood game to begin with, its total crap just like madden dickheads
go play a real game like Heavy Rain or Alan wake, maybe some system shock 2. i bet you’ve never even played singularity
Teti’s Law Of YouTube Comments holds again: As a comment thread for a YouTube video game trailer grows in size, its content asymptotically approaches a Call Of Duty flamewar. Closing arguments?
Yeh this game is shit
Woah there Hitler
Fist Of The North Star: Ken’s Rage 2
Playstation 3, Xbox 360—February 5; Wii U—February 7
Fist Of The North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 is a game in which a man with powerful fists (yes, “fists” plural—ignore the misleading title) beats up larger men with even more powerful fists while buxom women look on in awe. It’s a real heartwarmer, basically the Rudy of games where you punch people. That said, I don’t know how good Ken’s Rage 2 is going to be, and I’m not going to read the YouTube comments to find out. All I know is that I won’t be happy until they finally translate Fist Of The North Star Typing for American audiences. If there’s anything that life as a professional writer has taught me, it’s that beating enemies unconscious with your words is really hard, even with caps lock on. Only with Fist Of The North Star Typing can I live the dream.
Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time
PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita—February 5
No joke, this game looks like a lot of fun. The trailer is done up to make Thieves In Time look like a playable version of the old Mission: Impossible TV series, which is available on Netflix and worth watching the next time you’ve got an hour to kill. Did you know that Peter Graves didn’t become the leader of the Impossible Missions Force until season two? He replaced another actor, Steven Hill, who left the show because of disagreements with the producers. The Sly Cooper series has a similar history. Few people know that Sly Cooper, the raccoon super-thief, was a bonobo in the first Cooper game. The developers had to fire Bonobo Sly after the ape got too “handsy” with the other anthropomorphic animals. Sly Cooper: I Can’t Help It! is now a mostly forgotten footnote in video game lore.
