A Family Man, a Long Way from Home

HIGH Realizing the game wasn't going to warp my mech up a mountain.

LOW The unclear, frustrating first use of the claw winch.

WTF "Stay alive?" Nooooo, the actual objective is "fix miniguns."

I tweeted about this last week, but this is the first time I'm posting this news here at the blog, and it seems a little more real as I'm doing so… After many ups and downs and a ridiculously extended delay (which was totally my own fault) I'm happy to announce that my upcoming Urban Fantasy book, Speaking In Forked Tongues, will be available for purchase on March 25, 2014.

HIGH Jumping into a transforming Vital Suit and unleashing hell on enemy troops.

LOW The poor setup for mission 3-3 turns a great battle into a frustrating slog.

WTF Earning customization items is soul-crushingly slow and hatefully random.

Lost Planet 2

Game Description: The next installment in the popular Lost Planet action series, Lost Planet 2 is a third-person shooter which continues the story of humanity's futuristic struggles and attempts at colonization on the planet E.D.N III. A blend of new RPG elements and features that made the original game a huge success, including massive boss battles against the alien Akrid creatures, rugged terrain, mech warfare and dynamic multiplayer support, Lost Planet 2 is sure to please both new and longtime fans of the franchise alike.

Trent Needs Help and Lost Planet 2

Earlier I finished Lost Planet 2 on PlayStation 3. It was a really bizarre experience for a few reasons, but primarily because it started off lukewarm and sort of middling, but then actually managed to get better and more exciting with each successive level. I wasn't feeling too hot on it at first, but the game had completely won me over by the time credits rolled.

No girls in Crackdown 2, XBLA's Shadow Planet and Lost Planet 2 charity info (and pics!)

Although I wasn't the biggest fan of the original Crackdown, I did see a lot of potential in the title and I've definitely been looking forward to the announced sequel. However, the recently-announced news that there will be no playable female agents was incredibly disappointing to me.

Lost Planet 2: Hands-On Multiplayer preview

So, Capcom was gracious enough to invite me in to get a sneak peek of Lost Planet 2's multiplayer the other day. I'd never been to Capcom before and there were a ton of great review/journo people as well, so it was truly a double treat to attend the event.

To every person who went out of their way to say that I must be blind, dumb, or mentally disabled; for every person who decided that I did not know the meaning of the word fun; for every person who tried to convince me that I hate games and was absolutely missing the point of Earth Defense Force 2017... I give you Lost Planet: Extreme Condition.
