    Default Lost Planet Goodness

    I'll admit, Ive been neglecting the site as of late. But I have a reason! I've been sucked into Lost Planet! The multiplayer demo was released not so long ago and Ive been hooked! So hooked infact that I've made two videos for your viewing pleasure.

    The first one is a 20 minute video which centers around a small DM match I had. You can get a feel for how devious and sneaky you can be in a one on one match in this one. The second one showcases an 8 vs 8 match where everything goes. My team was losing hard up until the 75% mark where we made a massive turn around and beat the opposing team. Great stuff!

    As usual you'll need an x264 decompressor such as VLC Media Player in order to view the videos. Save Target As!

    [SIZE="4"]Video 1 - 212MB 640x360[/SIZE]
    [SIZE="4"]Video 2 - 284MB 640x360[/SIZE]

    I've also been talking with IceDDZ on the future of the site. I wanted to hold off on announcing anything as concrete but were planning on starting over design wise with the site. We both agreed that it would be best if we had a change of scenery around here as well as the actual code which powers the site.

    While were planning this the site will remain in normal operation as it has been for the last few years. Once the new design is thought out and we find time to actually get down to business you can expect a whole ton of videos to begin poping up on the site. That was of course one of our main draws, and you can absolutely expect that in the future.

    Thanks for posting the vids. I can see how one would get hooked on such a thing - this looks like so much fun! I hadn't even heard of it until now. I showed my co-worker and best friend for many years, and now we're both on board to purchase this upon release. I don't have a 360 either, but I've been wanting one for Dead Rising and Xbox Live Arcade, and seeing this has pushed me over the edge. See you boys online in about a month!

    Is Lost Planet gonna have any co-op story/campaign type play available? I don't much like pvp stuff.

    So the 360 was connected to a PC and the video was recorded & encoded directly? Am I understanding this correctly?

    I think it works the same as a um.. i forget the name, but a cable that you can plug into a DVD recorder and a console, to video things. Right?

    ya. Except in this case, you would be using a dongle with component in. right?

    Dot, have you played the map Dilapidation? Very good map. I prefer it to Pirate's Fortress actually. =D

    Oh wait. There's actually three demos.

    Dilapidation is actually in the third demo, which is called "Lost Planet Special Online Demo". Um, I'm not sure how you get it without getting one of those scratch cards with it....and even then it's got to be a US scratchcard.

    I was told that you can get them with pre-orders, though Capcom Europe sent me one because I'm lucky. =P

    However you'd be hard pressed to actually find someone playing Dilapidation. Everyone loves Pirate Fortress (or at least hasn't pre-ordered yet =P)

    But I do recommend it =D
