    Capcom unveiled the third installment to the Lost Planet third-person shooter franchise. Lost Planet 3 is technically a prequel to the other two games, which sees the protagonist Jim arrive on the planet Edn III to explore T-ENG (thermal energy), an elusive energy resource, with hopes that it would get him some cash for his family back home. Lost Planet 3 is a return to the extreme environments found in the first installment. Capcom posted a cinematic trailer, and several in-game screenshots.

    The creepy crawlies were totally copied from the latest Star Trek movie.

    I didn't understand the logic behind using Unreal Engine 3. MT Framework used in previous game was visually stunning.

    Hahah, throws the gun at it. I like it already. Hopefully it will return some of the love I had for the original game's story. LP2 had me interested till I saw the reviews. I'd only buy it on a sub $10 steam sale if it ever got that low.

    It's probably easier to code on the UE3 engine. Along with there's probably a lot more people that understand the UE3 engine over the other. There for Less cost to produce.

    I'll wait for it to hit the bargin bin, which if the last 2 games are anything to go by, will not take long.
