Kinda surprised there wasn't a thread for this. Has anyone played it yet?

Reviews have been average, and people were making a big fuss about the microtransactions before launch. Can anyone that has played it comment on if the microtransactions impact the game at all, and how cooperative play turned out? Also is it still a horror game or is it just straight action with some jump scares?

Getting this today hopefully. Reviews seem to suggest it's a good shooter, but not a great Dead Space game.

So refreshing being out of the damn dark corridors of a space station/space ship. It actually seems easier than the previous two games, even though this one is still really difficult.

I really love the game so far, the limbs are harder to blow off though.

I would buy a PS3 again just to play Dead Space 3. Can't count the number of times I've played the first two games through. Gotta find that Peng...

I'd hold off for the PS4 or Xbox 720. The PS4 will almost certainly be announced at E3, probably the same for the 720.

The Witcher 3, which comes out in 2014, is already confirmed to be a "next-gen" platform launch title.

PS4 probably won't be backwards compatible.

I don't see why not, I'm pretty sure they're going to be using blu ray disks. Is the PS3 using DL BD or just standard BD?

Just got to Chapter 7. I'm liking it quite I bit. I don't think that by the virtue of being able to craft weapons that it has become more shooter centric. It might feel that way with all the gun options but the core game play isn't really different.

Is it me or does Isaac seem to move faster now? Man I remember playing part one and how clunky the movements were.

I played and loved the 1st one though to be honest I am too scared too replay it for the achievements or the following games. That noise those docile necromorphs make in the "greenhouse" area of DS1 still gives me bonafide chills.

I ended up liking it a ton, it wasn't quite as good as the first two, but it was a really great action game. Sorry to self promote a little, but here's a review I wrote for it, hope it helps you decide to grab it!

I'm enjoying it so far. I don't really understand anything going on with the weapon benches, but I guess I haven't really put in the effort to get it yet.

Are suits strictly for aesthetic purposes now or do they have any sort of stats?

This game must be kind of easy, my son, which is 8, is already on like Chapter 9 I think. I don't remember the other Dead Space games being this easy.
