Gears of War protagonists Marcus and Dom are appearing in the Xbox 360 version of Lost Planet 2. Gears of War is developed by American studio Epic, while Lost Planet is from Japan's Capcom. How did this crossover happen?
Capcom Knows Gears is a really big & Good Game series That's why they reached EPIC. Only fanboys here on N4G thinks the game is bad and a flop! Now I want to hear the Other MEGATON news Soon!
I dig cross game character integration. Like in Soul Caliber, and the Characters Skins in Uncharted 2. Now this. It is a cool thing. I think more games should do this. But I played the demo and it's very unimpressive as it was.
What?! You didn't liked the demo of Lost Planet 2? How is that possible? That demo was awesome! The first game was a POS but this one's freaking cool.
I agree with you about the broken multiplayer, but the single player of Gears 2 was awesome.
The first Lost Planet was crap... really crappy crap. So crappy, that I was amazed it had been greenlit for a sequel. LP2 demo was fun though, and I like Gears. Kind of a weird tie-in, but whatever. It's not as fail as Soul Calibur and Star Wars.
Multiplayer as been fixed Forever now. What's your point? Single player was really good.
Just didn't dig it. Dunno really. Probably cause I am tired of shooters. 3rd or 1st person. Uncharted 2, MW2, and the MAG & BFBC2 Betas just kind of did me in. More intersting in Heavy Rain and Mass Effect. Also after FFXIII, GOW3, GT5, Alan Wake, Etc. I'll be ready for Splinter Cell. EDIT: Crap, I forgot Bioshock 2. That will be the next one, then SC:C
^The one major thing broken in multiplayer is that minor enemies are not in the same space as in other people's screen that your are playing with. People who have played Monster Hunter series should know what im describing. Anyway, go online with a friend and load up LP2 demo. Check out where your buddy is shooting and you'll see that most of the time he's not shooting at anything but enemies are dying on your screen away from where he's shooting. It's especially noticeable when you fight the one eyed fast thing that usually charges you from the back. Capcom had better fix this on launch of the game since you can actually get tossed by a monster that's not there. Sure you dont take damage but it does leave you open to attacks or worst a pit fall death like the bottomless water or the fishy akrid death.
this is a sellin point and its fact that some ppl would identify with marcus and dom from gears and would dive into this game just coz they are here.. this is a sellin point too for the 360 version of the game..
1. How this work, Gears Characters have an story in LP2? 2. THE MAX SPEED 21 Who said Gears was a FLOP, The Fisrt one was really Good, but the problem was The Second, the MP and the graphics to be more precisely and nobody is saying that is a flop, you paranoid... 3. LP wasn't good, so if someone is not Really Excited for this, is more like for the game than the Extras
Forget you all. I liked LP1, alot. It was a fun game all around in both single and multiplayer. I also enjoyed LP2's demo.
Lost Planet 2's demo was a crazy futuristic version of Monster Hunter, which is one of my favorite franchises. The freaking salamander-type monster was pretty well done. I loved how it could eat you and you actually fought it from the inside. I think Monster Hunter 3 is doing this as well. Good sh*t.
Imagine a game with Master Chief and Marcus?!!? Could be pretty interesting! Record Breaking sales for sure!
@ likedamaster I was starting to think i was the only one who liked LP. For all the capcom games out this gen LP and Dead rising have been my favorite. the controls could have been better and the story was a bit off in some parts, but i still loved it, the mechs were cool, loads of people played it online and the battles were crazy. now everyone thinks it's a POS :-( well I still love the game and i am looking forward to the 2nd part
Lost planet was fun as hell. Intense and chaotic battles throughout the duration of the game. Giant boss fights and IT HAD MECHS! The only problem I had is you ran like you crapped yourself but other than that it was a AAA title. Xiphos has officially made the most idiotic comment I have ever read.
The demo sucked.
@Dark Yeah. I still look at my LP1 copy on the shelf with admiration. The multiplayer, the epic explosions(too beautiful to be on a game so early in 360's lifecycle) and the final Mech fight in space. A Mech game that was actually playable and good. How can anyone NOT like this game. The story was obviously Japanese(nothing against them) and the characters in the cutscenes were laughable but no one can deny this game had lots and lots of polish, regardless of the type of game it was. As for LP2. It has awesome graphics, portable shields, and 4-player co-op... need I say more?
No problem, but, perhaps a little awkward. Maybe not though...we'll see. *shrug*
When I saw the trailer, I thought it was going to look stupid, but I have to be honest, Marcus and Dom don;t look out of place at all. They seemed to fit quite well.
they look like the generals that the Lost planet army needed oh so well. The LP chars weren't that memorable. So this time it'll spice things up
You guys know what'S funny? The planet's weather is supposed to be really cold so you need a special suit to survive but Marcus and Dom Dint have one!!! Their Badassness(if that exist) is so over 9000 that it's possible for them to walk trough the Coldest planets with ease.
i thought the dev's said that the game takes place after the ice melted. well at least in the last trailer i saw last year when they announced it.
Come to think of it...you are right. LP1 was all about the snow. LP2 should be all lush and green like Avatar environment. It would be sweet if this was some dlc for the original LP1.
Well Marcus and Dom do carry armors created to withstand extremely harsh environments. So i doubt that the cold area's in Lost planet 2 would harm them. Their suit contains quite a punch of technology that regulates their body. Their face stays warm thanks to the bodywarmer effect. Their suits withstand Acid, Heat, explosives and bullets in the game, so i suppose the cold isnt a big deal either. Besides, Your not in your mech all the time in Lost planet, you get out of it plenty of times.
but with no Cole... *sigh*
Well as i see it adding Marcus and Dom to Lost Planet 2 is one hell of a way to see the SALES sky rocket. Or put it this way it's a SEAL Of Approval for Massive Sales. Maybe Sony should beg to use Marcus and Dom for there games because there games hardly sell.
A seal for sales? Come on sausage face ur joking right? To me that's a seal of "Out of ideas" for the trash BOX Dumb bot.
Even on something that has no relevance to the ps3 and you are STILL bashing it. Yet you have a Playstation related name and avatar. METAL GEAR RISING, YOU FAIL SO HARD IT HURTS.
Is this how microsoft is fooling their loyal BABOON followers into buying non-original hog wash multiplat games? They have them insert their big boot macho manly men into multiplat games so the sucker BABOONS will buy 'em....AHAHAHAHAHA STUPID BABOONS WILL BUY ANYTHING....AHAHAHAHA
Master Chief anyone?
What about him?
I like the Gears thing because it is the less obvious choice. Although the detail that went into manufacturing a canon crossover for that one Spartan in Tecmo's DOA was pretty grand.
They both look CR*P so it was EASY!!! ;-D
in this game than in gears of war 1 or 2
It's a great series with amazing graphics and tight gameplay. It is worthy of a Gears crossover.
LoL. Those generic characters that no one cares. Gears 2 got forgotten after its first week. lol
Capcom sent Cliffy a pallet of boys size small Hello Kitty t shirts. It was a done deal after that.
lost planet 2 is amazing to those who havent played the top ps3 exclusive games on a big hdtv which can do true hd . lost planet looks good but i'm not lying when i say M.A.G looks better. i might be wrong but if i have to think hard about if lost planet 2 looks good then you know the game doesnt look that good. anyway, it doesnt matter, its my opinion and i think lost planet 2 looks mediocre at best. anyway, back to M.A.G. THE FUTURE IS BLU GEN
Youre the worst stand up comedian ever.
...actually agree with you Dyl, *smh*...
What a fanboy rant... The future is blu... ha ha. You work for the guys or something? But anyway...game looks fun to me.
Don't you mean Blu -RAY-?
its in lost planet cause of money,its all about making money
The models of Marcus and Dom that Epic send to Capcom to be used in Lost planet 2 seem to be more polished then the ones used in Gears2. For example, the textures are clearer, the colors darker, and the face looks more complex. Look at this shot: http://cache.gawker.com/ass... And compare it to this: http://kotaku.com/5457903/f... Maybe those are models for Gears of War 3 as well? Early 2010: Marcus and Dom make a cameo with updated models. Late 2010: Gears3 :) @below, ? do you have a link where i can read that up?
They are the models from Gears 1. The dropped detail in gears 2 as they added more players in mulitplayer. It's the trade off you have to make. Well worth it.
they are, but i think it's down to the engine.
@Fox Actually, Gears 1 models matches the look of LP2 better than Gears 2's models. That's why I think Cliff chose those instead of Gears 2's models. Although, the polygon count of Gears 2's models are higher with more detail it gave the models a more cartoony look to them. @dirthurts It's true, Gears 2 models have a higher polygon count and more detail. It's shown to you in the Gears 2 CE bonus disc.
Welp, Capcom just lost a customer. No way is Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee going to grace the PS3 with their stupid cameos. Capcom, stick to 2-D art games - it's what you're best at.
Are people seriosly starting to hate on LP because of this Gears thing?! God, that is frikin stupid! I loved the demo and this game is a D1P for me and my PS3!
Its Ps3 fan logic, the 360 gets the version with the most features, so ps3fans jump into defense by calling the game crap. This way they wont have to admit yet another defeat. Its common natural behavior shown by humans that are with their backs against the wall. Its good to know that at least you dont join the herd of sheep by expressing that this game owns.
Quoted for fact Foxgod said it out loud : ) this is nothin special its about as special as new skins for UC2 there cool but they add nothing other then nostgalia. anyways i hated LP1 terrible game iMHO but the LP2 demo i played with a friend and it was awesome definite buy for me. But i would say if this was say a ME charcter or a Halo charcter i would be more inclined to buy this version. Gears never did it for me but im only one person. lol im lyin im still buyin the 360 version becasue its just a machine adn i have a specific coop buddy i like to game all coop games with so that's how i make my choice he likes GS so ill help him. Real simple and normal lol
MS has bought a large stake in Capcom and allready has one in epic games so watch closely as capcom goes down the shi++er
Or they just thought it was a fun thing to do, like when Ubisoft and Kojima put Assassin's Creed in MGS4 by giving Snake an Altair costume. Sony must've bought shares in Ubisoft, yes?
I expected the explanation to have more drinking involved. Strange.
wow capcom is stretching for sure to sell to Americans lol
...and all of a sudden Lost Planet 1 becomes one of the worst games ever, Gears 2 becomes broken even though it's still one of the most played games on Live, and Capcom becomes teh worst publisher evah for co-operating with Epic aka teh M$.
LOL... Yeah, good point.
I don't see this as a bad thing and would have been happy if it had gone to both platforms. Who would be losing out? Good to see developers collaborating like this.
Though I'm not a Gears fan, that's pretty cool
Are these characters also in the PS3 version of the game? If not then Capcom needs to get some Killzone 2 characters in the PS3 version. That would be even better.

I love me some Gears but Lost Planet simply isn't anywhere on my radar, not even remotely. I'd actually forgotten it was coming out.
