A look at 'Lost Planet 2'

I don't often feature video games on my site, but that may change as we've recently purchased a PS3. I am currently becoming acquainted with many of the first shooter games as my husband gleefully fires up the console after we put the kids to bed. I'm still not a gamer in any sense of the word, but I know how fun and engrossing they can be. Because of that, whenever I get a change to bring something to you that may involve free games--I'm all over it. Right now Capcom is gearing up to release Lost Planet 2, which will hit stores on May 11th. A decade has passed since the events of Lost Planet, and the face of E.D.N. III has changed dramatically. Terraforming efforts have been successful and the ice has begun to melt, giving way to lush tropical jungles and harsh unforgiving deserts. Players will enter this new environment and follow the exploits of their own customized snow pirate on their quest to seize control of the changing planet. Players control their heroes across 6 interconnected episodes, creating a truly unique interactive experience that changes depending upon the actions of the players involved. With this concept, players will have the opportunity to engage in the story in a much more dynamic way as plot threads evolve from different players' perspectives. Beyond the deep single player mode, Lost Planet 2 is loaded with extensive multiplayer modes. The intense and action packed campaign mode comes with the ability to form teams of up to 4 players online to clear mission objectives with friends. More Lost Planet 2 Info As part of the 'Lost Planet 2' roll-out, Capcom is offering lots of different ways to win 'Lost Planet 2' swag and Capcom games (soon to be featured here as well). Right now you can follow news about 'Lost Planet 2' on their community site, Facebook and Twitter, and each site will be running contests and posting updates on the game. I'll keep you updated as I have links or my own giveaways featuring 'Lost Planet 2' or any other Camcom games.

I've been thinking about buying myself a video game console this summer. I'm hesitant but I do like some of these games.

We held out for a long time before getting the PS3 console. You know what finally sealed the deal? It plays Blu Ray discs. The whole system is pretty slick. We also subscribe to Netflix and most of the game consoles will live-stream from Netflix so you can watch the 'play now' movies on your television. Between that, its Blu Ray capacity and the games, it made more sense to buy the PS3 than to buy a separate Blu Ray player. More for your $$.
