214w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared an interview with Capcom Producer Mike Schmitt on Dead Rising 2 for PS3 from E3 2010.

The game has progressed significantly on PS3 since we saw it a couple months back, so he held a chat with Producer Mike Schmitt. And because James is English, he didn't even realize that the man hit [Register or Login to view links]! Facepalm!

Fortunately, the fact that he wasn't starstruck allowed him to focus on the game itself. Have at it, James:

220w ago - Today Capcom's Europe Brand Manager Richard Earl has announced alongside a video trailer that Lost Planet 2 is officially released for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: The sequel to Lost Planet: Extreme Conditions has seen massive changes take place across the planet of E.D.N.III.

We think we've got climate change issues? Earth has nothing on this place! The snow has melted across the planet to reveal all kinds of hostile environments in which you will have to adapt and do battle.

The local Akrid creatures are also still as angry as ever... As well as changes to the environment the game has also seen massive advances for the sequel.

The multi-player mode for the game sees you and three mates work together through 6 massive levels battling rival pirate clans, akrid creatures and massive (and I really mean MASSIVE) bosses. To help you take on all these enemies there is a huge array of weapons and Vital-Suits which amounts to some seriously hard firepower.

There's also a huge level of customisation in the game with which you can create your own unique pirate and unlock weapons, power ups and emotes. You can then take your own character into the online multiplayer modes to unleash some serious pwnage.
