Will pick up Crisis 3 in Feb - none of the others have my alert levels high enough. Will also monitor the sales numbers between Dead Space 3 and Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Oh, and being from Africa, it is more like Summer Refreshers for us folk.
Why do you monitor sales?
I don't know, he said something similar in the last Aliens Colonial Marines article, something about comparing sales, I thought it was weird at the time. I think English is his second language and he's just interested in how the two will do launching so close to each other.
I can save you some bother, Dead Space 3 will be an 8/10 action game that'll take about 12 hours to complete, (that's 8 to anyone outside of PR) that won't be scary or have much in the way of horror besides a few boo's because it's after the gears fans now. It'll sell enough to keep EA butchering it up until they stop numbering the main games at Dead Space Sanitisation (Dead Space 5) in 2016 whereupon they'll reboot it.
As for Colonial Marines, It's out pretty soon and I still haven't seen it being played. It'll get 8/10 in reviews. I don't know if it'll be good or not because they won't show it apart from the promoted posts they're flooding everywhere with that have tiny amounts of in engine cutscenes and scripted stuff in them. Could be amazing, I'd be over the moon if it is, all signs point to no though. I imagine it'll sell similar numbers to AVP 2010.
Can we have some new IP's please? Gods the new consoles can't come quick enough, also, gods I hope they change things.
