Hands-on preview: Lost Planet 3
by Dale North

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.

E.X. Troopers yanks a character from Mega Man Legends 3

One of the weirdest games to be announced so far this year is E.X. Troopers, the manga-style Lost Planet spin-off for the 3DS and the PS3. After Lost Planet 2 failed to set the world ablaze, a lot of people thought the series...

Cel-shaded Lost Planet spin-off EX Troopers looks amazing

Remember that thought you had about Lost Planet way back when? You know, that one about it being alright and everything, except for the fact that it desperately needed cel-shaded anime graphics. Well, friend, you're in ...

Did you see all our awesome Captivate content?

Capcom recently held their annual Captivate event and the intrepid Dale North dropped a flurry of previews on the site first thing this morning. He got his mitts all over DmC: Devil May Cry and came away rather taken wit...

Game director and franchise creator Kenji Oguro says that Lost Planet 3 is the closest they have come to his original vision for the series. This sequel returns to the harsh, extreme conditions of the first game, but now puts a heavy focus on narrative and storytelling. The gameplay has transitioned to home in on survival and exploration, moving on from the arcade-y play of the first title, or the cooperative team play of the second. Oguro says that he's really pleased with how the elements have come together for Lost Planet 3, and that he cannot wait to show users the final product.

Lost Planet 2 has great ass jiggle physics

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. And by good, I mean dammit this should have been a better game than it turned out to be. Why wasn't Lost Planet 2 c ... [Shane Bettenhausen's Twitter, via David Ellis's Twitter]

Lost Planet 2 underperformed substantially

While SEGA is busy scratching its head over the surprisingly good sales of Alpha Protocol it seems Capcom has been busy throwing chairs across the room at some disappointing Lost Planet 2 sales. In what can only be called a m...

Unlock Frank and Wesker in Lost Planet 2 the easy way

One of the cooler aspects of Lost Planet 2 was the ability to play as Resident Evil 5's Albert Wesker and Dead Rising's Frank West. Somehow, it just worked -- in a totally insane and nonsensical way. Problem was, you needed s...

Say what you want but Lost Planet 2 is #1 in Japan

Our own Nick Chester reviewed and didn't love Capcom's latest, Lost Planet 2. I felt like I enjoyed what I played of it more than Nick did, and some of the other outlets reviewed it a bit more favorably. Overall, the game's s...
