Add Lost Planet 2 in the list. The trailer looks orgasmicly sick!

Plus, it has coop in the game and based on the selection of equipments that encourages teamwork play, like the mobile ballistic shield a player could use, and a multi guns mecha that can be seated for three persons. Looks like a game with bleeding potential for a great 3rd person action game, something Lost Planet fails to to acheive due to over simplicity of the gameplay system.

And if it's as bloody hard as Lost Planet 1, then it's a must-have by far.

 

Edit: Goddamn, Capcom knows how to do an announcement. Get this, they start by being really familiar with their player base, acknowledging them, then showing a good trailer and end up with a questionnaire small Q&A where the devs actually admit to listening to fan input. That's one great team there.

 

Anyway, I'll add King's Bounty: Armored Princess to the list.

Meh. Still looks too much like Squeenix's every other franchises.

Boohoo looks. The underlying turn-based combat system is actually pretty neat, and tries a lot of new and different concepts. As a design experiment, I think it succeeds. I'm not sure which part the demo takes place in, but it may or may not accurately depict the overall gameplay; the first few hours stick you in 'tutorial' mode. The game really picks up once you get more unions/leaders/units.

Is the protagonist a 14 year old boy with a ridiculously large sword?

Biggest technical complaints here are 1-2 seconds of pop in time for textures to load fully after an area comes up and load times for the battles which take from 5-10 seconds. Not too bad, but they occur so frequently that they can really get annoying. It would be nice to see the game recognize what input method you are using and tailor to button prompts to that so you aren't constantly trying to figure out where they hell they've mapped right bumper to on the keyboard. Performance is great on my computer. Running it at 1920x1200 with everything on high and there was no noticeable slowdown.

 

It's got about an hour or two of play time from what I saw depending on how quickly you rush through the demo.

 

EDIT: Supposedly the button prompts will change depending on input. Maybe I'm just an idiot and missed something when I went over the control options. No mouse support for the menus is a disappointment though.

I've always wondered WHY we're fighting the Akrid in Lost Planet... It sounds like "we" are the aggressors in this situation.

Fallout 1, 2, and tactics all being rereleased within the next months.

 

And I, being the good little Fallout fan that I am, will buy it once again... :ermm:

It happened years ago on DVD. I don't know what's different about this particular pack, if anything.

maybe they're trying to introduce it to a new generation of players?
