Lost Planet Colonies unveiled

Lost Planet Colonies unveiled

As expected Capcom unveiled Lost Planet Colonies in the pages of the latest Famitsu Weekly. The game doesn't seem to change the formula of the previous one, just with more weapons, new enemies and levels.

Let's hope it's not as irritatingly 'old school' as the first one!

Anyway. so this is confirmed then as a sequel and not an expansion is that right ?

I want lot of types of missions, not only kill everyone in the level and see stupid plot cutscenes

I loved the first game, both single player and multiplayer, only thing I want from this sequel is better AI for the enemies in story mode.

Can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but it was a nice looking game who's gameplay was far too traditional, punishing and 'old school'. It wasn't as good as I was hoping it was going to be, certainly.

Well LP was very cool (played it on 360 when it launched).
The online, fun, yes, but very unbalanced.

What I hated about the online was that once you are getting hit by a shotgun or a assault rifle, you can move at all, you keep stuttering your way out and that way it is easy to die.

Another thing that pissed me off is the VS weapons.
Regular ground soldiers can pick up the VS weapons but then actually use it like a weapon, which is just bullshit.

That makes close quarters cheap as hell.

I don't mind that you can pick up the VS weapons, but it is only if you want to carry it to an actual VS and then jump in and control it.

But I don't think I will pick up this game, because it will probably be the same old stuff for the online, maybe I will get it for its SP, but that is unlikely.
But it is too far away to think about such things like that.

So is this a sequel or an update, because you make it sound like the latter.
Commented on 2008-03-12 15:38:08
Sounds like it's a full retail update, should be a free update for download, but it sounds like it won't be.
Commented on 2008-03-12 16:59:05
it was average. the animations and slow character are very annoying
Commented on 2008-03-12 17:50:26
I quite liked the first one, but it was quite irritating the way just about any hit, or even a near miss sometimes, would knock you down or at least off balance for a few seconds. You seemed to spend half your time in battles recovering.

So this is a update not a sequel?

It's a full retail price updated version of the game.

Not a sequel, and probably not a free update.
Commented on 2008-03-12 23:40:11
It is an update featuring even more new content. Oh well, the PC/PS3 had a superior version for a little while at least?
Commented on 2008-03-12 23:56:36
Why do certain developers insist on making a "special edition" or something similar instead of just releasing the content as downloadable? This is one of the main reasons I never buy the first version of a capcom, square, or konami game because I'll know there will be a special edition, or a FF international + Final Mix, or a MGS substance released a year or so later.

$30 to be exact. And Capcom shits on PS3 owners yet again, releasing a more expensive ($40), less content packed game with fucked up framerate and textures on the PS3. Yippee Capcom! Nice going there! You could have delayed the PS3 version to coincide with Colonies, adding these features in as well in addition to fixing framerate and textures but instead you choose to fuck over PS3 owners. Sigh.

Man i can't wait I loved the first one and can't wait for this one.

I don't trust the $30 quip I heard from 1up. They're charging the equivalent of $60 in Japan according to this Famitsu.

Japanese pricing is different, although if they are charging $60, double shame on Capcom for milking the same freaking game twice the same year: first with a shoddy port for the PS3 and second with a re-release on the 360 and PC.

It's been done many, many times before by Capcom. People still buy the re-releases.

Not been sarcastic, fully enjoyed it.

Now that's some great news. I want some more Lost Planet. Loved the first game, but never took it for online play. (maybe that is why ;))
