"Is it possible to play the SinglePlayer in Coop mode via Xbox Live?
We do not have support for Co-op mode over Xbox Live, but if we find that it's something the fan base really wants, it's definitely something we can keep in mind for the future. "

WTF??? ANY.....absolutely ANY action game is helped by a co-op mode. I think it's stupid to even be questioning that. If you have co-op, your game automatically becomes almost twice as good as it was, it's just that easy.

In gears it worked because the actual game is played by a team which you control but in Lost Planet you are playing a single person which if Co-op was just to be thrown in SP wouldnt make much sense now would it. I think they should have a separate co-op compaign available as a downloadabel content (for a reasonable price that is!)

I wanted since day one damn it. Would be awesome if Wayne and one of those green jackets with red goggles went out and killed akrids and such.

Anyway those wallpapers are bad, there are hell of alot better at Capcoms official Lost Planet site.

I think a lot of kudos needs to be shown to the team making this for the interaction they've shown with the community during it's development. It's patently obvious a better product will be the end result.

For co-op to be in, the level design and encounters need to be designed with that in mind from the beginning. Tacking it on would have been a bad move. I'm sure they would look at it, if there were ever an LP2

I'm sure after Gears success more games will be implementing that type of co-op. Even EA have got the message with Army of Two.

The one game that better have online co-op is Halo 3.

@Alimo and Deft.

You guys maybe right about the co-op, now, who's idea was it to not do that from step 1? Would you rather play Halo by yourself or co-op? The same for Gears. Co-op gives ANY game a lot more replay value.

IMO, simply throwing co-op in there could have worked. Instead of there being just one mech, spawn two.........there's nothing specially different about the level design of a game that supports co-op.

I think maybe he added all the thought process and brainstorming time in there aswell.

I think the max time is could ever be for developing on the 360 is 2 years and that's pushing it by a lot (that means ms would have had to give them a debug kit way early before other devs).

They should have added co-op!

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (6 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (9 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (10 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (10 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (11 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (12 minutes ago)
