Lost Planet 3 Gameplay Trailer – Do Joints Bend That Way?

Capcom has a new trailer for its upcoming third-person shooter, Lost Planet 3, and it’s not too hard to guess what’s in it. A frozen world, a gargantuan insects with orange weak points, and plenty of bullets fired.

Spark Unlimited has done a great job creating a believable frozen alien planet, but the protagonist’s character model is just frustrating me to no end, and I can’t put my finger on why.

There’s the strange lack of recoil in his assault rifle and how he whips around to change direction is one place to start. Then watching him fall on his face during the collapsing bridge scene as well. It could be how the editing threads these scenes together, but I am getting genuinely uncomfortable with the motion here.

Anybody else weirded out by this stiff, awkward robotic man?  Did I just happen to uncover some spoilers?

Lost Planet 3 will be released on August 27th for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
