Dead Space 4 canceled? Was the series ruined by changes to Dead Space 3?

•March 6, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Videogamer.com has released an incendiary report indicating that Dead Space 4 has been canceled and the series ended due to the failure of Dead Space 3 to meet EA’s sales expectations. Quoting a “source familiar with the unannounced project”, the report goes on to state that developers Visceral Games were given a directive from EA during the development of Dead Space 3 to tone down the horror aspect of the game and make it more action-oriented in an effort to “(…)make the game feel more like BioWare’s Mass Effect.”

Will there be a future for the Dead Space franchise, and if so, will it be recognizable to those familiar with its origin as a horror title?

Experiencing the Horror- The Evil Dead

On December 4 of 2000, THQ released Evil Dead: Hail to the King for the Sony Playstation, with a Sega Dreamcast version of the game following on December 17’th and a Windows version on March 27’th. It was a notable release of a fantastic game, mixing the vivid imagery of The Evil Dead films with the survival horror gameplay of the Resident Evil game series. Most who have played it agree that it is an underrated classic, and I would go so far as to call it one of the unrecognized gems of survival horror gaming.

Popcap games and the American Dental Association joined forces to give away free copies of Plants Vs. Zombies for Halloween. The idea was to have people print out coupons with a code to download the game to trick-or-treaters instead of tooth-rotting candy.

If you want a free copy, just go to http://www.stopzombiemouth.com/ and follow the directions on the site (the code is available in the ‘free printable coupons’ link on the page).
