Lost Planet 3 sales below Capcom expectations

Lost Planet is clearly an attempt to appeal to the western market, as Capcom keeps farming it to western developers. The strategy doesn't seem to have caught fire like the company hoped, however, as Lost Planet 3 failed to meet sales expectations.

Lost Planet 3 trailer shows survival is not enough

Being stuck on an ice world can be a lonely existence. You might even end up talking to yourself. Lost Planet 3's Jim Peyton apparently doesn't have too many people to talk to, and a new trailer has him explaining to no one in particular why he's fighting for his life.

Even Capcom was skeptical of Lost Planet 3's new developer

Even Capcom was skeptical of Lost Planet 3's new developer

Spark Unlimited hasn't had the best track record, having worked on the poorly-reviewed FPS games, Turning Point and Legendary. It was odd that Capcom would assign such a shaky developer on the Lost Planet franchise. But lo and behold, Lost Planet 3 proved to be one of the surprise hits of E3. Capcom producer Andrew Szymanski discussed how this surprising alliance formed, and admitted that even Capcom was skeptical of giving the game to the team at first.

Weekend Confirmed 116 - E3 2012 post-show wrap-up

E3 2012 is officially in the rear-view mirror, which means it's time for the Weekend Confirmed crew to talk about all types of impressions, news, and more. Garnett is joined by the Jeffs--Cannata and Mattas--and a trio of special guests: David Ellis from 343 Industries, and N'gai Croal and Justin Blankenship from HitDetection. There's far more than can be covered in one show, but the crew still manages to touch on a huge list of titles. Halo 4, Dishonored, SimCity, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Rayman Legends, New Super Mario Bros. U, Watch_Dogs, The Last of Us, Beyond, Need For Speed: Most Wanted, Resident Evil 6, and The Cave are just some of the games discussed in this week's info-packed episode.

Weekend Confirmed 114 - Diablo 3, Max Payne 3, Lost Planet 3

Diablo 3 has strengthened its hold on Jeff Cannata who really only wants to talk about his barbarian, but there's so much more to cover. Garnett returns to the driver's seat after spending last week getting a sneak peek at some of the big games ready to vie for the spotlight at E3. "Indie" Jeff and Andrea Rene complete the adventuring party that gets down to business discussing their varying degree of anticipation for E3, the demise of 38 Studios, and the plight of subscription model MMOs, whether Max Payne 3 actually improves the gunplay over previous Rockstar open world games, and a handful of other games including Lost Planet 3 and Rock Band Blitz. Put a bird on it with Finishing Moves and you've got one massive show to take along on the Memorial Day weekend.

Lost Planet 3 preview

Lost Planet 3 preview

"Is this a reboot?" I asked a Capcom representative at a recent preview event. I had to ask, because Lost Planet 3 was not what I thought it would be. Beautiful, atmospheric, and intense, Lost Planet 3 is the rare game that goes completely against expectations, and offers something refreshingly new and exciting.

It's an odd admission to make, given the awful turn the franchise took with Lost Planet 2. Perhaps taking too many cues from Monster Hunter, Capcom's sequel became too multiplayer-focused. Battles against the game's many towering enemies felt like grinds, with the game's "shoot the glowing weak point for half an hour" gameplay growing thin. And with the franchise now in the hands of a developer as unproven as Spark Unlimited (Turning Point, Legendary), it's no wonder I was skeptical. However, after thirty minutes of hands-on time, I would say Lost Planet 3 is the game I always wanted Lost Planet to be.
