Let me start off by saying three words...We Want More! Seriously, if the game developers are reading this post. My hat, my kidney (only need one to live, its a fact) goes to you. Dead Space 3 is amazing. Yes, I was scared. Yes, I had nightmares. Yes, I screamed. But if that doesn't give you the excitement to finish a level and try to find out what's ahead than it just shouldn't be created.
This game just engulfs you in, spits you out and begs you for more. Gaming wise three key items you will need; A) alot of ammo, B) alot of med kits and finally C) a very powerful gun. Just upgrade everything about it. Because you will need, oh yes you will.You think you safe in a 3 x 3 closet. No, its a lie things just come out of nowhere and you stomp, shoot, and stomp some more. Like I said before the stomping never gets old. You will also need some hot/ice packs for your left pointer finger. You will need that flashlight, you will use that flashlight and you will thank that oh bright flashlight.
Most games that have came out since 2012 have had two discs, right? One for multiplayer and one for updates and/or campaign, whoopie. Well Dead Space 3 does come with two discs, but it is ALL campaign. The story line is ridiculous, challenging and fun. At one point I just wanted to find things to shoot because it was so much fun. But with two campaign discs you will spend more than ten
hours of game play.
But back to the game play, its not a button smasher game. Like Dante's Inferno or a fast paced third person shooter like Gears of War. Dead Space 3 urges you to take your time. You want to take things slow when approaching corners and long hallways. Within the game their will be puzzles, codes that will take time to solve; if you've played Batman: Arkham Asylum or Arkham city you know what I'm talking about. But that just adds more to excitement. To compare its being in those Nicholas Cage National Treasure movies where, you are given clues and you have to solve them to solve the riddle. Within the game you can always change out your gun or customize it. If you find enough spare parts you can buy a gun, but it will take time.
The story line picks off right from Dead Space 2. If you haven't played Dead Space or Dead Space 2 don't worry the game developers will bring you up to speed. If you are worried about not reaching the checkpoint(s). You can save at any point you wish and start from there when you load your game.As Pol mentioned the world the game developers created is just fantastic and the game does give you a sense of awareness of "being out there".
If you wear a headset, don't. You just hear things you wish you hadn't heard. The "creatures" move around in the game and pop out of nowhere. Also, don't adjust the brightness of the game it will ruin most of the "surprises" that the game offers and lay await.
I haven't yet played the co-op campaign. But I can say and be assured that if co-op is the same as single player campaign than it will be epic.For my review, I give this game a 9 out 10. Its exciting, challenging, interacting and you just don't get bored of playing it. The best part is that their is more smashing.

Hey there all in internet land. Franc here with another film review. Today's
victim, "the perks of being a wallflower". Directed and written by
Stephen Chbosky, and starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller.
First, let me begin by saying that overall, it was a pretty decent film. If Paul
Bettany were to have been offered a role in this movie, he would have turned it down. That is because Paul Bettany only makes doo-doo brown movies, and this one, is pretty good.
I decided that I wanted to read the book this week, before watching the film.
I found this to be both a blessing and a curse. It was a blessing because I had
already developed an understanding of the characters and seeing them brought to life in the film was awesome. I think the casting for this movie was the best
part. Lerman killed it in the lead as Charlie, and honestly, I felt every other
role was equally well cast.
The story line itself is also brilliantly developed. This is a story, that on
many levels, all of us can relate to. Maybe not some of the darker notes, but I
think this movie (but especially the book) do an incredible job of depicting
what high school life was like, and what it felt like to be a part of it.
However, here comes my rant, here is what I did find disappointing. Why, why,
why do movies insist on making so many changes from the book. Now, let me
explain. I'm not talking about removing or changing a major arc that you simply don't have time to delve into within the constraints of 120 minutes. I'm talking about minor arcs and minor details. I was so excited to see this movie after reading the book, because the author of the book, wrote and directed the
As I turned the last page (digitally that is, on my Kindle, I don't actually
turn "paper pages" anymore, since I'm not a caveman) of the book, I set it down and walked to the mirror and said,
"Chocolate Bear, this is it, your big day. Finally, you will have read a
book, then watched the movie of said book, and it will be exactly the same
story. No changes, no surprises, none of that nonsense. Because, finally, an
author of a simple novel, with easy to depict characters, and a series of plot
lines that can easily be told within a 2 - 2.5 hour feature, has decided to
write and direct the movie themselves. A man standing on his own two feet, a
slave to none, and master of his own creative destiny. Brace yourself sweet
Mocha Cub, brace yourself for glory."
I had no idea at that time, that I was a bold-faced liar. Why you ask?
Because the same nonsensical adjustments, tweaks and outright changes exist in this movie as they do in every other novel adaptation that proceeded it. And I imagine it will be the same for all time. This was particularly frustrating
considering that the movie ran just over 1.5 hours. Plenty of time to add in a
wee bit of story to keep it more consistent. Very disappointing Chbosky...very
Is it the worst book to film rendering I've ever seen, no, not by a long
shot. If you are a huge fan of the book, do not be turned off from watching the
movie. It's amazing how well they captured the characters, and you'll love
watching the people you loved in your mind come to life before your eyes on
They also did a more than fair job, telling the story on screen. Just be
prepared for some differences. Differences that for some may seem negligible,
but to me where huge moments in the book. Moments I found to be beautifully
written, and was more than upset that they were omitted from the film. But,
that's just me.
So, now to my final rating. On the Paul Bettany scale, where 10 is the
highest and Paul Bettany is an extra value meal that you order with no pickles
and no mayo, then drive all the way home, park, walk up 6 flights of stairs, sit
down in front of the TV, open your burger to find no pickles and 8 pounds of
mayo (in short, a disappointment), "the perks of being a wallflower" gets
This one is 100% worth the watch, and for fans of the book, despite the
annoying changes, it's even worth the buy. The Bluray has some pretty cool
featurettes that you will enjoy.
