So far this week a few awesome things happened, starting with the launch of one of 2013′s sleeper hits (in my opinion), the horror game Dead Space 3. The story so far of Dead Space 3 takes place in futuristic space, where you take control of a space engineer, Issac Clark, sent to repair a destroyed spacecraft and find your girlfriend, but sooner than later things end up going array. You encounter enemies called necromorphs, who are undead humans who were experimented on in order to spread a virus throughout the universe. The typical setting is to feel as if you are in this cramped, dark, and creepy spaceship with essentially no way out with undead humans trying to kill you literally every chance they get. Dead Space 3 however takes it to the next level and greatly expands the scope of the game. In the previous games Issac was inside of the seemingly haunted spaceship for about 90% of the game, this game allows to explore a whole planet and vastly improves the atmosphere that takes place in space. while the combat still takes place in cramped caves and caverns. One thing the Dead Space series does very well is its way the enemies interact with you, sometimes you will seemingly kill a necromorph and can be looking through your inventory, 7 seconds later you will hear a hell-shattering scream and see the enemy quickly crawling towards you, trying to take you out anyway possible. Dead Space is an incredibly underrated series with very deep game-play that is a breath of fresh air from most modern shooters today, all while a deep story as well if you’re willing to look into it, as it takes a lot from religion. It is a great game and I truly recommend it to anyone who is willing to spend $60 on it.
Next up is a game that is personally at the top of the list of games I’m looking forward in 2013 and that is “The Last of Us”. The story we know so far is that it takes place in a postapocalyptic Earth where you follow the story of a little 12-year-old girl Ellie and a middle-aged ex-convict in Joel. Only a few trailers for the game have but we now finally have our first true gameplay trailer and it’s safe to say it does not disappoint. For those familiar with the “Uncharted” series pretty much know how the controls will work however, both games will end up feeling totally different. In “Last of Us” everything looks like it has a weight to it, from the sound of smashing a enemies head in, to the recoil you feel when shooting your desert eagle pistol. Everything feels likes it means something, or there’s a consequence to doing it. I can’t wait to get my hands on it in May.
That’s about all for this week so far, keep posted for more updates later this week!!!!
