A very important part of Lost Planet 2 is upgrading your character and getting more powerful weapons. During the game killing certain enemies leaves behind a box in place of, or along with T-ENG. You get to open those [?] boxes and see what you’ve collected when you see your Episode stats.
[?] Boxes are awarded in LP2 notably after killing Akrid bosses, and some smaller Akrid, plus for other enemies and after performing certain tasks. Collect the boxes by running over them, or “shooting” them with your anchor.
In Lost Planet 2′s Episode 3 Chapter 3: Libera Me, you’ve killed all of the bad guys and the train is yours. Now there’s that pesky giant worm (Red Eye) thing to kill, but just how do you do it?
So, how do you kill that huge worm in Episode 3 Ch. 3 of Lost Planet 2? I’ve played through Ep. 3, Ch.3 three times + now, and always finished Red Eye (the giant worm thing) with the cannon – but here’s what you need to know to get there. More >
I opened a new tab on Google Chrome recently and saw some icons I didn’t recognize. One of them was for Entanglement,a great video game I play an online on Chrome (Game by Gopherwood Studios website | blog). You can find Entanglement online, or buy it as an app for the iPhone or iPad.
I find the Japanese-themed music very relaxing as I play, but you can turn it off if you prefer. There are also a couple of sound effects which can also be turned off. After a day or two playing Entanglement I noticed an offer for the Sakura Grove Expansion Set, “For the Entanglement Enthusiast”. More >
SO WHERE IS SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAIGN MODE IN LOST PLANET 2?
Getting into single player campaign mode in Lost Planet 2 isn’t as easy you’d think it would be. Normally, you just fire a game up, select Campaign, and if you are the only player signed in then you are there. Googling an answer to this question took too long, and I finally found people asking “How do you play a single player campaign offline” and “Single Player offline : where is it?” while I was searching for other Lost Planet 2 info in preparation for this post.
GETTING STARTED: LOST PLANET 2 CAMPAIGN
Select Campaign then make sure Connection Type is Offline. Next go to Create Game. If you are beginning the game for the first time select Difficulty and Friendly Fire options. The option AI PLayers will not do anything, so its a moot point to make any selection there. When you select A to begin you will be prompted to make sure you want to play, select Yes and you will finally begin.
If you have a smart phone but its not an Android you wanted Priority Inbox, the Gmail mobile web app now supports it!
The Gmail blog says:
Now, once you set up Priority Inbox in the desktop version of Gmail, you’ll see Priority Inbox sections when you visit gmail.com from your phone’s browser and click on the ‘Menu’ screen. You’ll also see importance markers in your inbox, so you can quickly identify which messages are important.
NEW CONTACTS FEATURE 1
You can add multiple email addresses by pasting a list into the Add to Group menu.
NEW CONTACTS FEATURE 2
You can also specify which email address is used in a given group.
For starters there is a new preview panel on the right sidebar, you can preview videos in the preview pane, its easier to view pictures/images, its simpler to explore and browse your files and more (read the entire post for more info on these features, visit Google Docs to explore, you can even take a guided tour in Google Docs that’s really informative, and there’s an Getting Started with Google Docs page, too).
For those of you using Chrome or similar browsers with small tabs you may find this new Labs feature interesting… Unread message icon. In Chrome (version 6 and above) and Firefox (version 2 and above) you can see the number of unread messages on your tab where the Gmail “favicon” is located.
When you’re visiting sites other than Gmail, it’s easy to find out how many unread messages are in your inbox by glancing at the title of your Gmail tab or window. However, if you have a ton of tabs open, or if you use Chrome’s “Pin Tab” feature that hides everything except the tab’s icon, it can be tricky to figure out without switching tabs.

I expect this idea may find more use when its applies it to more browsers than Chrome and Firefox. Several Gmail (Labs) features that have come out lately have been specifically, or primarily, for Chrome.
I had to transfer my contacts from my old Verizon LG Cosmos cellphone (LG Cosmos VN250) to my new one, and move my photos (pictures) from my LG Cosmos to my PC (Windows XP) – but I couldn’t find a simple, quick and clear “how to”… so I’m writing one.
This article describes how to get contacts, pictures, sounds and other multimedia from your LG Verizon Cosmos phone onto your Windows computer (Windows XP and probably Windows Vista and Windows 7).
WHAT YOU NEED TO MOVE FILES TO YOUR WINDOWS COMPUTER
Your Phone’s Charger/USB Data Cord
A microSD card (picture | buy one)
LG USB Modem Driver (download from LG.com)
GETTING YOUR PC READY FOR THE FILE TRANSFER
The first thing you need to do is download and install the LG USB Modem Driver, click the link above and look for the Download LG USB Modem Driver link. Your computer should be ready now. Make sure the driver is compatible with your version of Windows.
Next you’ll be moving the data from your phone into your Windows computer.
MOVING YOUR DATA TO YOUR WINDOWS PC
- Swing open the USB and microSD covers on the sides if your phone (USB is on bottom side edge and the microSD is on the right side edge)
- Unplug the USB plug from the power cord adapter and plug one end into your phone (the same place you charge it) and the other end into your computer’s USB port (your phone’s battery begins charging)
- Put the microSD card into the phone’s microSD port
- If this is the first time you’ve used a microSD card you’ll have to move your media to the card. From looking at the folders I see on my screen it looks like you can transfer contact info, pictures, ringtones and sounds from your phone to your PC
- From your phone’s main screen press your round OK button, then press #9, scroll down to 3. Tools, scroll up to *. USB Mass Storage
- A window pops up saying its connecting to your computer, then another window pops up and informs you that you are connected, and not to disconnect during the transfer.
Now you can set the phone down in a good spot and on your computer you should see either Windows Explorer listing the folders found on your micro SD card, a Windows prompt on what to do with the files on the micro SD card, or a program may open – all depending on the options you’ve selected as defaults in Windows.
From here you can save the pictures and your contacts on your computer somewhere you can find them.
