Thanks guy, just added it to the cart. Huge fan of the series and I'm sure for $15 I can forgive any missteps they took with this one.

Exactly why I waited on buying this game till now. I only forgive missteps if the price is right!

Thanks OP! Had a $5 off coupon from Gamefly for a trial i just started a few days ago so for $10.79 this was a steal for me. Loved both the previous games in the series and have been waiting for this one to drop down to this price! :)

Thanks for the info guys. I think I'm gonna play without the dlc weapons because I like the customization aspect a lot more then just sticking with a few guns the whole game. Also if anyone wants to co op when they get it my psn is VolsVegasking.

If you play the side mission you can easily get 11-12 hours of play out of it.

 

As far as the microtranstactions are concerned, I wouldn't bother - they are totally unnecessary, and worse probably make the game too easy. Part of the thrill is having to struggle with getting enough ammo and weapons to stay alive. Having too powerful of weapons early on kind of ruins the game.

 

And make sure you get the shotgun early - you'll need it to deal with the giant spider thingy that you keep running into.

Was looking for an excuse to use my $5 off pre-owned titles coupon. I'll take the dive on this for $10. Thanks, OP!

Dammit, GRRRRRR, I hate these sales, it hurts my backlog. Finish one game, three take it's place. What am I gonna do?!? I promised myself that I'm never going next-gen until I finish my current gen....which is NEVER!

Yep same here.. I was going to buy a PS4, had one pre-ordered at NewEgg.. canceled it after much thought. Because If I did just that, I'd never go back to playing my backlog.

 

1) I don't play as much as I used to. 

 

2.) No rush for me to buy it on release date when I won't get anything "special". If they had added a day one trophy, I might've kept my pre-order. /sarcasm.

 

3.) I have a huge ass backlog for the PS3/Vita. I was trying to finish off my Vita backlog, since it was the smallest one.. Barely beat P4G and just a few days ago I ended up buying FIFA 13 & NFS: Most Wanted from the TRU sale. 

 

Top that off with Muramasa Rebirth, Hot Shots, & Shinobido all which I haven't even unwrapped.... Such is the life of a CAG...

So now that EA has done away with online passes, is there really any reason to buy used over new?  $20 was my sweetspot for this game, and I'm really tempted at $15.  On the other hand, I'm worried about the microtransactions.  I'd never use them and the fanboys have insisted that, if you don't use them it's like they aren't even there, but I've also heard that without them it takes several playthroughs to get everything, and I'm not looking to play through it more than a couple of times.  I've played the original Dead Space but that's it, haven't finished the others, read the comics, or seen the animated movies, so am I going to be lost story-wise?  Finally, is there any co-op only missions or is the entire game playable solo?  If anyone whose played through it a few times that'd have any insight I'd greatly appriciate it, Halloween is coming up so once I wrap up the extra content on Doom 3 BFG I'll need another good horror game to play.  On the other hand I'm tempted to see what Black Friday has to offer......

 

 

I've never played Dead Space before, which is the best one?

 

I played through the 1st one twice, something I don't do often.  I wouldn't quite classify it as a masterpiece but it certainly was one of many standouts from this gen.  Aside from the ridiculous DLC (which would have obviously been unlockable bonuses in-game if DLC wasn't an option) it was a great experience.  Based on my limited experience with the other games, I'd say the 1st is best by far.

 

I never played Dead Space 2 proper but I dabbled in it's multiplayer, while it wasn't broken or terrible it really wasn't anything special.  I also dabbled with Dead Space Extraction, but without the motion controls it too felt bland.  The other digital download Dead Space game is Dead Space in name only; don't touch it at all.

Your bolded part...fanboys, what? Micro-transactions being used to "get everything" without multiple playthoughs is only relevant if you want to craft all the different variations of the weapon blueprints available and need crafting materials, and this isn't necessary for "completion" of any kind. Relics, text logs, weapon parts, and blueprints can all be found in a single playthough with a guide (though some are locked behind co-op side missions - 3 in total and you can return to these areas through chapter select to do them after you completed the game) and ammo scarcity is never really an issue. Multiple playthroughs will be required regardless, as there's the default mode, classic mode, pure survival, and hardcore modes to run through with an achievement attached to each.

 

Story-wise, imo you will have missed out because DS2 focuses on Isaac's ever worsening dementia post-Ishimura, and because he feels so much saner in DS3, that's why it loses a lot of the "Dead Space" feel and seems more action packed when it starts off. I would recommend you play through 2 when you have a chance.

I really enjoyed this game. Never played part 1 or 2. The microtransaction thing was a non issue for me. I was able to upgrade everything fully after finding all the bots. 

 

Fun game. Reminds me of RE5, which I liked. 

 

RE2 best in series. RE1 close second. I have the entire first 15 minute opening memorized lol ... I was a kid and me and my friend rented it without a memory card. We died a lot.
