If there's anything game, comic, or filmmakers have learned repeatedly as of late, it's that the process of altering a beloved formula will inevitably generate at least a few casualties. People who once loved the property in question will turn their backs on it, be it silently or after broadcasting enflamed pieces of mind throughout the cyber-cosmos.
When your job is to monitor those cyber-cosmos and report on those flying, flaming pieces of mind--or even when it's not your job--it's easy to forget the point: that with change comes new potential.
Luckily for us, that point is well delivered in the form of VG24/7's latest hands-on preview of Lost Planet 3. If you've been thinking the latest game in the LP series is looking awfully different than past installments, you're right. But if you're thinking that equals a loss, you'll definitely do yourself well to give this preview a read at the link above.
