Before the folks at Toy Notch got in touch with me about checking out their latest figures, I had nearly forgotten that Capcom’s Lost Planet series was a thing. This is how they remind me.
Lost Planet 3 wasn’t perfect. But, despite being an overly familiar shooter, the story it told and the main character that players controlled manage to feel more meaningful than most other action-centric games out there. It felt like the cast’s relationships to each other and their own feelings were at stake. It…
Mega Man. Onimusha. Dead Rising. These are just a small sample of games from Keiji Inafune. Now, he's working on a new title, Mighty No. 9. Oh, he's also answering your questions, right here!
Lost Planet 3 is rough at times, with boss battles and backtracking that you’ll get frustrated at. But the game’s characters made me want to persevere through its sub-zero challenges. One of the ways you get to know them is in confessional-style videos that pop up every so often in game. Some of them are pretty…
After reading his review, I sat down with Evan to play through a mission in Lost Planet 3. It's a surprisingly fun and well-made game, and now you can see it for yourself!
Early on in Lost Planet 3, main character Jim Peyton says "I'm here to work." The 32-year-old isn’t a prophesied savior or a man of action who's sworn vengeance for fallen comrades. He's a dad who taken on grueling work so that his family can survive in a future where Earth’s energy woes have led to riots and global…
Lost Planet 2 is one of those games time simply stomped all over then punched out of your memory, but with a sequel on the way, the franchise has one more (last?) shot at relevancy. Which is as good a reason as any I can think of for this amazing Lost Planet 2 figure to only be turning up now.
Originally pegged as an early 2013 release, publisher Capcom has announced that Lost Planet 3 won't be coming out until June. Specifically, it'll be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on June 25 in North America and on June 28 in Europe.
Godzilla and his atomic breath are one of the most recognizable metaphors for the atomic bombings of WWII—and they're also icons of Japanese pop culture. With a steady supply of Kaiju movies, giant monsters nestled themselves comfortably in video games, creating a huge library of monster mayhem-based titles. We have…
There sure have been a lot of Resident Evil games, right?
Via Capcom, here's some cool new footage (with developer commentary) from Lost Planet 3, out next year for PC and consoles. What do you think?
Capcom's trying out a few different things in Lost Planet 3, which is a prequel to the previous two games in their outer-space action series. The chunk of gameplay above comes from a live demo done at Gamescom 2012 and shows off some of the new Akrid creatures you'll be battling, as well as the snowy landscapes…
Upcoming sci-fi title Lost Planet 3 shows off some of the gear in this new trailer. As someone pointed out on YouTube: If it's so cold, why don't these characters have headgear to keep their noggins warm?
Lost Planet 3 happens in space. More specifically, future space. And it'll have the star-faring ships and unlimited-ammo pistols that make sense in a sci-fi series. But the threequel will also let you blast a centuries-old bolt-action rifle at those nasty Akrid. What's up with that?
Capcom's German outlet has posted this lengthy clip giving us our first substantial look at Lost Planet 3 gameplay. Just skip through all the bits where German games writers are talking and you'll see all the guns, snow and mechs you'd expect.
