** We actually see some akrid hunting and eating each other in 3.



** I think it was planned by the Carpetbaggers to be mounted on something else, the train was just s temporary platform, maybe they planned to hijack an Overland Battleship, think about it, a railway cannon on one of those would be much more effective than the T-ENG Cannon, specifically when it was finished, think about it, who would design a gun that big and make it so that it can only be manually loaded?

* I'm no expert when it comes to business protocols but would sticking guns to the [[HumongousMecha construction vehicles]] really turn it into a military venture, granted there haven't been any situations in real life when that was necessary but when you have vicious alien bugs bearing down on you whenever you go outside I think that would be completely necessary, just say it's protecting business interests or something.

**The carpet baggers aren't the smartest bunch.

* How does the [[CoolTrain Railway Cannon]] make any sense as a threat to any of the factions? It's a giant cannon that's on top of a train. It can only go where the train can go, so if someone comes up with the idea of destroying the train-tracks, the thing is positively useless. It seems like the most impractical weapon ever, because, again, no matter where it's going, it can simply be stopped by getting rid of the train tracks and it won't go anywhere else.

*** If they didn't end it like that, with [[spoiler: "killing" Nushi and all]], they could have explained it by [[spoiler: saying that Nushi and Over-G are names for a single creature, just by different people. That Eastern guy is long-dead by the time of LP2, anyway, presumably nobody fancy enough to use names like "Nushi".]] They missed that opportunity though.

* What's the deal with [[spoiler: kilometres-spanning leviathan only having one heart and being able to be killed by a single drilling platform?]] Especially since when Jim discovered it, he was shown to be able to shut the drill down without deplatforming Rig. Also, [[spoiler: he managed to stay in place for several drill pumps before getting dragged in, and then crawled for, quote, weeks, unquote. With at least one foot torn off.]] Overall, LP3's ending feels very rushed and not thought-out.

** Particularly because Lost Planet 2 revealed there is already a [[spoiler: giant beast inside the planet that generates enormous amounts of T-ENG known as the Over-G. Adding Nushi just seems unnecessary when OccamsRazor really could have sufficed.]]

* So where are Wayne and Co.? They're gone by the time LP2 starts, and only Ivan Solotov had any relation to the characters at all.

* In Lost Planet 2, why am I supposed to be rooting for the Snow Pirates again? The very first thing I saw them do was ambush two random troopers and shoot a helpless wounded man.
** ...where did you get the idea you're meant to be rooting for them?
*** They were NEVEC the games evil corporation.



* Why is Capcom letting another company handle Lost Planet 3? Huh.
