^^ I can't believe I didn't see that thread yesterday. If the mods want to lock this as a duplicate or delete I totally understand.

The EA Borg Collective strikes again!

Last hope for a story driven Star Wars game most likely dies here, too, because guess what? They want to make Star Wars Destiny style game instead!

The Dead Space games were solid titles. A damned shame.

why do Star Wars games always end up getting cancelled or in turmoil?...same with games based on the Alien franchise...should be a no-brainer and easy to develop as most of the hard lifting as far as story, mythology, atmosphere etc has already been done...the Dead Space trilogy was also very well done for the most part (part 1 being the best)

These and finally a good Star Trek game, too, while we're at it.

I may just have to play through all 3 Dead Space games again. I'll do it in honor of Visceral. Great games (3 is still great IMHO).

The entire trilogy is amazing. 2 was disturbing as fuck (still the only game I've had to stop playing because of how uncomfortable it made me at times) and the conclusion in 3 was perfect.

I absolutely loved the first two Dead Space games. I attempted to play DS 3 a couple times but couldn't get past the first hour or two without losing interest. It seemed more like an action game than the horror/atmospheric games that preceded it. Which is annoying since the same thing happened to the RE series after 4 (except for the newest one it seems - I've only played the demo of it so far).

You should push through because the classic Dead Space feel comes back once you land on the planet and it's unquestionable by the end of the game.
