Too bad because I really enjoyed Ds3 and feel it's the best game this year... oh well... things are looking bleak in the gaming world.

Discuss my sophistication and super successful ways via my savvy topic here. But celebrate me when you do it.

Best game this year: 0% of that happening.
DS needed to end and I`m glad it did on a good note, we need other games by them.

Good. As much as I liked the series, it needed to end. Maybe they can make Dante's Inferno 2 now.

EA kill off a series? I don't believe it, surely there was still some money to squeeze from that IP :P

Good, that means people wont complain that it's being "Milked" and can say that it ended on a good note and not a bad one.

Also if EA doesn't shut them down they can start working on new IPs.

"because ultimately you need to get to audience sizes of around five million to really continue to invest in an IP like Dead Space."

A former Visceral Montreal employee claims to have told Game Informer that "the entire studio has been laid off".


That's just rediculous

Wow, I disagree with everything you just said. Wait, I disagree with you like 99% of the time though.

Just shows they care more about greed than the industry... I'm sure they have mastered the art of making the games by now. Enough to bring them in under budget and still make massive profits.

As I said, oh well... I loved it while it lasted and would rather have it die than turn into recycled junk like resident evil, mgs, final fantasy and so many others.

I certainly agree with Assassins creed... the game you can't spell with out spelling Ass twice.

I've never played gears of war and I'm still waiting for Gow to get good. I know they can do something with it if they unchain the cam and update the engine.
