Meet the Akrids: Genessa and Bolsepia

53 second read


In the latest iteration of Lost Planet, players get to explore the world as it was during the ice age. While most flora and fauna were different, some were hardy enough to survive in any climate.


Genessa are immobile and seemingly non-sentient Akrids. They do not attack, but rather spawn out small Akrid, such as Sepias and Bolsepias. While they may seem unaware, they spawn more Akrid the closer a player gets, hinting that they may be aware of threats and spawn Akrid as a defense. They are relatively weak and easy to kill, just don’t get swarmed!


Bolsepia are a subspecies of Sepia and can be spawned by Genessa. Their enlarged heads hold Thermal Energy, causing a wide area of damage when they explode. The explosions can be triggered by being shot, or if players get too close, causing them to swell and burst. At least they don’t have triple jaws!

        I have no idea why Lost Planet never tickled my fancy. I have always seen it being plugged in the background even back in 2007 when Capcom kicked ass.
        But for some reason I just never cared. Did they not also get so desperate as to get Gears of War’s Marcus on board in number 2? for Skins or DLC or some shit.

        I don’t know where their marketing went wrong. Maybe it was all that Co-Op.

        Yip DS3 was a different beast and I say WIN. 2 player CO-OP really worked. I have played it in SP and it is like 2.

        But I bet not many people know that the visuals on the screen change depending on what character you are. Something that only we noticed as we were playing with our screens side by side. Very cool story.

        Anybody remember these bastards?

          Busy with 2 player co-op through DS3 now, and it’s my first playthrough. Loving it.

          Oh you bastard! I shudder when I see them. Not sure if I told anyone here. I got some sleeping pills, and ended up tripping the light fantastic. I was sitting in my bed with a life sized toy solider from DS3 staring at me in the corner of my room. Fucked me up propper…

            Always the Nutcrackers that resemble pure HORROR and childhood innocence.
