Also, I want more feeling of absolute cosmic terror in my Dead Space experience.
For me it got too much like just being Resident Evil in space (including the hokey voice acting) blended with obvious Doom 3 elements. I hope there's more ambition in portraying the space setting in the third game, though I won't hold my breath. Still, I'd be interested in reading your impressions thread.

Not really currently playing anything to be honest: Started a character in Avadon last week, but have mostly been playing some miscellaneous horizontal scrolling sh'mups on the C64. (Katakis, Parsec, R-Type, Nemesis and a bit of Salamander.)
By all accounts - Dead Space 3 is EVEN MORE of a straight-up shooter fest than DS2.

However, it also seems to have expanded some gameplay elements quite significantly - so there is that.
