Trailer of Lost Planet Colonies

Trailer of Lost Planet Colonies

Capcom released this trailer of Lost Planet Colonies, presenting the new multiplayer mode Akrid Egg Battle very thoroughly. It seems like "Capture the flag with eggs" could be another way of describing it, but it's nice to see that they can give the online community something more to play (for a "small" fee). The game just went gold and will be shipped at the 27th of May.

Do people still play Lost Planets online? I'm not trying to be a dick I'm just curious if the community is still going strong...

On 360? Last two times I checked there were ZERO people playing it. I dunno about the PC version (does that require games for windows?)

I thought the MP was pretty cool, and it always played pretty well, but noone plays it. One big thing that Capcom killed the community with was releasing those 3 map packs you originally had to pay for (which are all now free for download).

So not only are people not going to buy this game for MP because they know the MP is already dead, but people will additionally not buy this for MP because it further shatters the already completely pureed community into individual neutrons, electrons, and protons.

[edit : To clarify, you can't play Lost Planet with people with this edition. Basically they're two separate games.]

You mean basically they're charging you again for the same game with alittle added extra to it.

If this goes up on Steam i'm all over it. The original's up so hopefully they're smart enough to whack this one up there too. At $29.99 thats about £15, more than worth it.

Well actually there are still people, just NO ONE plays player matches, kinda scary. Its just. empty there. Ranked matches are mostly full on weekends.

Anyways, I have a question. My lost planet disk cracked a while ago, and I was wondering if I got lost planet colonies, would I still be the same level I was in the original lost planet? And will I be able to play with people who only have the original?

Nop, they are 50 GBP. Just do the conversion and you will get amazed but how we get riped off in Europe.

I am not sure about that one...

I played a lot the early demo of the previous games and somehow that had the effect of me badly wanting to play the game... until i got tired of it and not wanting the game anymore. The demo came way too soon imo.
It could be the occasion if it indeed boasts the whole 1st ep single player content.

About prices of games, in france actually games are between 60 and 70 euros (93 - 109 USD) except games with accessories which come at higher prices (Rock Band is planned to be $372). It feels like we are back at SNES days... and leaning toward NeoGeo Prices

The most disappointing thing in Lost Planet for me was always that this game has no OFFLINE multiplayer.

You cant take a look of the maps or check out some cool spots. You have to go online.


Otherwise LP is a great game and it was my GOTY.

Just tried again last night, there were some people playing, probably about ~100-200, only in ranked matches. There isn't too much variety in server settings and maps, of course you can set up your own, but people are playing only 4-7 of the maps, and many servers pick rifles as a start weapon and very little FFA playing being done.

What I heard (as I mentioned before) LPC players won't be able to play online with owners of the original LP.

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
