The Lost for PCs Found

This page on the framed FXLabs Website reveals that a PC edition of The Lost is in the works in addition to an Xbox version (thanks Frans). This comes just as the PS2 edition of the Lost earned the dubious distinction of landing on IGN's Top 10 Vaporware List, one of those regularly scheduled opportunities to mock TeamFortress 2 and Duke Nukem Forever. Here's word on the project:

An action/horror game for the PC and Xbox. "The Lost" pits players against the denizens of the underworld as they make their way through an incredible array of visually stunning environments! Fight a wide array of creatures, control up to four distinct characters, and lose yourself in the compelling storyline and eerie music. This game is being developed as a joint production between Irrational Games and FXLabs Studios.

If the horror genre is exclusively anything, it's 3rd person replete with wonky camera angles.

faces of war is most certainly not Medal of Honor, Company of heros isnt Brothers in Arms, Commandos isnt IL-2 Sturmovik
And no one suggested otherwise. They merely pointed out that, as a historical set of events, if WW2 is used as a game's setting then you automatically have a reasonable understanding of that setting. A game like Freedom Force vs The Third Reich is going to mess with that a bit of course, but generally speaking it's true.

the theme might be the same but it encompasses many different genres
Right. AFAIK, that's all anyone said.

horror almost always plays the same ..things that jump out of closet/dark corner, lights that turn off suddenly, creepy kids etc
Well if that's your complete definition of horror, maybe?

the horror genre is almost exclusively fps
Okay, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU SMOKING?!?

FPS horror is one of the most criminally under-populated genres in gaming!

I don't really see how you can even compare the two. Horror is a broad genre, like sci-fi or fantasy. For example, Undying is nothing like Silent Hill but they are both horror games. On the other hand, WW2 is a very specific setting, always using the same environments, characters, weapons, etc.

...give us something different, we're sick of the same shit over and over again

Ah, it's not just gaming. It's everywhere. Movies, books, television. You have to find some solution to a problem and an excuse for a character to possess a certain kind of knowledge, it's easier to stick with something that's cliched and familiar than try something that's not.

Hell, at least with books I'm usually turned off by the authors writing style, especially if his/her research is really off.

so freakin tired of horror themed games ..it's far worse than the ww2 genre in that it's over saturated to the point I wont even look at a game if it has the tag line

at one point warren spector was involved in the game. the early screen shots suggested this game was going nowhere. Not optimistic about this

"...genetic experiments gone horribly wrong .."

surely there's more inspiration for developers than just the 3 fps standbys: the military shooter, the horror shooter, the ww2 shooter ...give us something different, we're sick of the same shit over and over again
