Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Jul 232021

As you might remember from our E3 2021 coverage, EA skipped E3 this year and held its EA Play Live show yesterday instead.

Leading up to the event, they confirmed that BioWare games and Star Wars would not be present, which cut out most of the EA games I’d be interested in.

Nevertheless, there were still a couple of games that caught my eye.

First up was Lost In Random, which was announced at last year’s show, and it definitely looks interesting.

It will be out on September 10, right in the middle of all the other games I’m looking forward to, but I’ll probably keep it in mind for the future.

Shortly afterwards, they showed what I briefly thought was a trailer for a cool-looking game until I realized it was actually a trailer for the new Apex Legends character instead. I have no interest in playing Apex, but I’d play whatever game I thought that was at first.

But the big news of the day was that Dead Space is back, with a remake in development for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

According to the official press release, the Dead Space remake is “completely rebuilt from the ground up” and includes “an improved story, characters, gameplay mechanics and more.” There’s no release window yet.

A lot of people are excited, although many are frustrated that EA shut down Visceral Studios only to bring back Dead Space now.

I’ve never played Dead Space before, but maybe I’ll try it before the remake comes out. Or maybe I’ll just wait for the remake.

How do you feel about the Dead Space remake? What about Lost In Random? Was I the only one who mistakenly thought Seer’s reveal was a trailer for a neat narrative game at first? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Lost In Random looks very cool, like a Tim Burton stop-motion movie as a game. Shame it comes out on the same day as both Tales of Arise and Warioware xD
