I'm in. I've grown to really enjoy the universe; it makes for a better overall experience, IMO. Anything remotely Dead Spacey is all right by me. I even enjoyed Aftermath.
Not sure I can agree with you on that. I've loved the games, and the printed materials (Comics & Novels) but I can't say that I've thought the animated features added anything to the series, and I've seen both of them. Both of them had major issues that made them really hard to like, and (in my opinion) added very little to the mythology, so I generally consider them non-cannon, although I know that technically they are both in cannon, sadly.
But the Novels, my god, they are great. Martyr more so than the newest one, but even that one was interesting, and added a lot to the history of the Marker(s).
This is my list of fav games ever:
2) Resident Evil 4
3) Red Dead Redemption
4) DEAD SPACE SERIES
So basically, I'm gonna buy any CE from those games, even if it comes with a Necromorph plushie. It's because what the game represents to you, no the face value of the contents of the CE.
ZOMG Necromorph Plushie! I would buy that in a heartbeat. And yes, exactly. I know, objectively, that the contents of this is not worth $100, but I love the series enough to want it anyway, and to support Visceral. I just hope that the majority of the packages go out to others who feel the same way, and not to people wanting to just make money off them.
