So I haven't been paying too much attention to Lost Planet 3, but I'm genuinely intrigued now thanks to this nine minute long look at the new game. It looks like it's trying to go for more of a realistic and cinematic take o... read
I was already pretty close to all-in after learning of the concept behind Capcom's Lost Planet spin-off E.X. Troopers. The idea was to take the snowy and fairly serious world and soften it up a bit with cell shading and pink-... read feature

E.X. Troopers: Lost Planet turned cute and super Japanese


Aug 29
One might argue that third-person shooter series Lost Planet is already Japanese, but...well, not really. It's pretty western, as that was the goal for the title at some point. But what if you took the basics -- space explor... read

Remember that hands-off Lost Planet 3 reveal demonstration I saw last month? Capcom finally let me put my hands on it -- that exact demo. It makes me wonder why they didn't let me play it in the first place. Still, I was able to finally play through it last week, and as you'd imagine, I have a bit more to say about it.  read feature

Lost Planet 2 has great ass jiggle physics


Jan 03
Lost Planet 2 didn't do so well when it was released for a variety of reasons. However, it's good to know that such important work went into making the ass jiggle physics so good.
