P*N New This Week. 9th May 2010

Welcome to Platform Nation’s weekly feature which tell you the games that you need to care about coming out in the next week.

This week, the major release is:

Lost Planet 2

Lost Planet 2 (PS3, X360): The sequel to Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is set ten years after the events of the first game, on the same fictional planet.  It’s a third-person shooter with huge boss battles.

My View: Capcom is famous for their over the top huge bosses and Lost Planet 2 is looking to take this to the extreme.  I really enjoyed the single player story from the first game but never got into the multiplayer at all, this time round it seems like Capcom may have concentrated on the multiplayer so I may just wait and see just how long the campaign is before placing my order.

Release Date:
: May 11.
UK: May 11.
May 20.

Check out the Official Announcement Trailer

Also coming this week:

X360: Lost Planet 2, Skate , Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY

PS3: Lost Planet 2, Skate , Batman: Arkham Asylum GOT, 3D Dot Game Heroes

DS: Puzzle Quest 2

  • I was so excited for Lost Planet 2 and then IGN gave it a 6.0. So I was like /facepalm and lost excitement. Ah well, I’ve pre-ordered Skate 3. Amazing skating game. FU Tony Dork.

  • No games i’m interested in this week. Can’t wait until next week tho, Alan Wake & RDR.

  • Must resist 3D Dot Game Heroes and hold out for Red Dead Redemption next week. Maybe I will pass this week and work on my back log.

  • Dorian Whittley

    I’m with Adam. I was excited and then totally burned by the reception Lost Planet 2 has recieved. I will say, though, I wasn’t partically impressed with the multiplayer.

    3D Dot Game Heroes is very cheap right now on amazon… so I’ll probably go for that one…

    or maybe I’ll wait for ModNation Racers…

  • I just finally checked out the reviews for Lost Planet 2 and I was pretty shocked with the response as well. Odd.
