Top 5 Underrated Co-Op Games of Last Gen

Capcom Announces Lost Planet 3, No Sign of Co-Op

Incoming Capcom news! Lost Planet 3 was recently revealed. The follow-up to the excellent co-op adventure, Lost Planet 2, has a shiny new trailer you can check out below. I won't go into details on the video here. You can see all the ice, snow, and Akrids for yourself. I will say that the trailer has a very single player vibe, and from the details given at Capcom-Unity, the game apparently follows suit.

Dead Rising and Lost Planet Almost Never Came to Be

In a recent lecture at a Kyoto University, former Capcom studio head and game design legend Keiji Inafune revealed just how close we came to missing out on the Dead Rising and Lost Planet franchises.  Apparently, Capcom's sequel-itis wasn't due to a lack of creativity, it had to do with banking on a sure thing.  Everyone knows we are actually on the 14th or 15th installment of Street Fighter.  Resident Evil has been around forever, and no mortal knows how many Mega Man's exist.  Dead Rising and Lost Planet were rejected outright in the prototype stage.  One would assume that if Inafune would have titled the games "Dead Rising X4" or "Lost Planet Alpha 3: The New Challengers" they would have been green-lit for a dozen games each.

Steal Lost Planet 2 for $10

Capcom's flop of a third person shooter, Lost Planet 2, is for sale for only $9.99 at Amazon.com.  Why should you care?  Because the game is awesome, especially in co-op.  LP2 got some low review scores when it came out in May of this year, mainly because of the difficulty level and the necessity of relying on poor AI if you were playing single player.  We gave it a co-op score of 4 out of 5 in our review,  because we know better than those other guys.  Capcom even patched some of the difficulty problems, and you don't need to worry about bad AI if you have some co-op buddies.  You can use this link for the Xbox 360 version, or this link for the PlayStation 3 copy, and help support Co-Optimus.
