Like EVERY. SINGLE. CONSOLE GAME this game shows a great and astonishing amount of character at first, but soon after shows it's shallow fucking crap in the form of cutscenes introducing new enemies and a gameplay machenic you've fully explored in the first 5 minutes.

I spit on consoles. I spit on console games.

My hate is renewed. Thank you.

Fixed myself a "demo" that I'll try out later today.

I'm not going to pay 50 bucks before I know what I can expect. Like the demo-providers often say "If you like the game, BUY IT!", which is a motto I hold dear.

Apparently this game uses GameSpy for multiplayer matchmaking, which is pretty hilarious. Why would they do that when they're already using Steamworks for everything else?

I haven't played 1 or 2, but this... looks pretty epic actually.

I mean, 1 did suck, and I'd imagine 2 was no better, but "Shit Planet?"
Are you even trying anymore?

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

57/100 @ metacritic... Doesn't sound like a big hit.

Aside from this being "lol metacritic", a score like that genuinely baffles me - I mean, this has a few flaws and isn't going to be a blockbuster hit, but this also doesn't feel like a BAD game.

Maybe I'm just biased because I love anything involving giant robots so much.. I don't know. I'm just surprised to see this getting bashed as much as it is. I'm actually finding it to be a lot of fun.

Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

I'm actually enjoying this a lot. I was expecting a linear shoot-em-up but the game's actually quite a bit more open-ended then I thought it would be. They also took a WAY different approach to the plot and dialogue - the story is actually comprehensible now. I'm crushed by the lack of co-op play (which basically sold Lost Planet 2), but the singleplayer component is way better.

I like the rig mechanic too - I'm sort of baffled at why you need to be nearby your rig get an ammo counter (the other things I can understand, but why ammo?), but they otherwise got the giant robot feel down just right for my liking.

Edit: Just realized it's only for detailed ammo tracking - even when you're away from your rig, a (small) gauge on your crosshair still shows your overall ammo, so there's that.
