Am I going to buy Dead Space 3? Of course. It’s the third title in one of my favorite franchises this generation. Admitting this, am I going to stop complaining about the shoehorned co-op in this third installment? No. Not at all.

I don’t want to get too excited for Dead Space 3, because the Pig Swine Leviathan over at EA seems insistent on shoehorning multiplayer into the son of a bitch. To stem this excitement I whip myself up into a frenzy, swearing at the television screen “You fly solo!, that’s your fucking appeal!” as the Dead Space 2 title screen blinks back at me in silence. It usually works. Right now, it is failing. I can’t help it. A Dead Space 3 screenshot? Has me the excite.

I really want to enjoy this Dead Space Graphic Novel Short or whatever, but I can’t get over the hump. This hump, this spiked and cumbersome hump is what appears to be confirmation of Dead Space 3’s co-op mode. Oh Gods, so unnecessary.
How do you take the best science-fiction horror game going right now and shit efficiently on its premise? Shoehorn a fucking co-op mode into it. This is so fucking dumb.
