I like the look of this game, apart from the guy's face.

Hoping it turns out well.

Thank you. Could do with at least another couple of tears though. But good job!

Yes I am aware you can only have one screen tear- The human eye can sometimes see multiple ones; I really want the full effect.

But it's pretty much too late for me to consider a LP3. Because LP2 was basically a redux of LP1 that didn't fix LP1's issues (STUN LOCK STUN LOCK STUN LOCK. GrenadeGrenade. ROLLROLLROLLROLLROLLTOABUSEI-FRAME) so I'm not hyped for this.

What're the chances this'll feel, say, more like rote TPS than Lost Planet?

Probably sadly quite high. At least LP1/2 felt rather unique.

Over/Under on this selling even worse than LP2? :p

Ah Seks, I was burned with Front Mission Evolved...but that was quite the genre leap. This? Well. Apathy creeps. I'll keep an intrigued ear out, but as it stands, I think this might do worse than LP2.

I'm just quite disappointed with the lack of...well...mechanical flair we've seen thus far. We get a VS scooped off the Mech Assault cutting room floor and I'm yet to see Mr. Beard wield anything like a car-sized shotgun. Early days, but still.

You never know. But we can safely infer!

All looks okay to me. People moaning about the main character's derpy-ness are the ones responsible for bald angry men holding guns in every game. He looks fine. He has a bit of shit-eating grin, but that's more interesting than what you'd typically get...

Going to wait for gameplay before I write this one off or decide to get it (I'm still very sceptical about the developer), but the screens look promising from a graphical/art direction/character design standpoint.

I think he looks a bit like the Assassin's Creed dude.

Maybe combined with his AC1 look, not the latest stuff.

Anyway, I hope it's not just a linear shooter, a mission structure would be best, as long as it's not cut up in little pieces like LP2.

Seeing it in person, it really is one of the best looking UE3 games from a third party studio. Not sure if it was a PC version being shown but we were told it was not.

Is Asura's Wrath that good looking? I've only played the demo btw. :P

About the graphics of the game, it looks good for a third party UE3 game but the big question is how stable the frame-rate is and how well the game animations are.

Either way we're looking into a game from a C-tier studio so it will probably be best to keep our expectations low.

Yeah the game actually looks pretty damn good but I'm pretty sure this isn't going to be nearly as interesting as the previous LP games from a gameplay point of view.

The scale and details put into the animation make it impressive to me, I'm sure people could point out something like a low resolution but from my point of view it was awe inspiring.

Spark have been using UE3 for as long as any 3rd party, if even they haven't got it stable at this point it will be stocking.

Certainly a tale of redemption. Pleasantly surprised. Is this thread now about Ben Affleck being better in the director's chair? If so, very good.

Nice! They've decided to go back to their roots from the first game instead of copying other generic military shooters. Day 1 Buy.

I hope this game takes a somewhat horror approach. It could really end up being the next gen dino crisis 2. Seriously, these Akrid are more or less fucked up looking dinosaurs anyway.

Blue Castle pre-Dead Rising 2

The Bigs, Major League Baseball Front Office Manager, The Bigs 2.

An odd choice for a horror franchise but not bad games.





Spark Unlimited pre-Lost Planet 3

Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, Legendary.

Terrible, some of the worst games I'v played in the FPS genre and I've played Gloom.
