Definitely one of the neatest games in recent years. Won't you able to share your creations online?

im all for creating neat maps and trees, but ... umm... beyond that whats the goal of the game? is it just that to create levels?

i mean spore's goal was to create a civilization and to expand and survive and thrive....

what the goal of the players in littlebigplanet.

It does feel like you haven't seen any of the previous fottage of LBP...

You can make your own backgrounds, characters and entire game systems, you can give them scripts, behaviours and AI to react to and can make any game out of them. Just carve a stone and it will have stone like properties, cut a cloth and it will have cloth dynamics, make a human dummy and it'll have rag-doll initiated...got that ?!!!

Entirely physics based.... its like you making a Mario game, ulltra beautifully, or a Mortal Kombat, Or a MGS title...just name it in any genre.
Some recent demos are like marketing tutorials, which show you that game creation with such great embedded physics was never so easy but is now.

The greatest aspect is that you can share your entire game online with friends, Just wait till you see people making games of spectacularly creative new ideas...

Link, Mario, Kratos, Ratchet, Snake, Master Chief or Ryu Hayabusa.......make what you ever wanted to. Nintendo's, Microsoft's or any of the other's iconic properties are going to get owned by Sony, and there won't be a copyright issue since everyting is fan-made. The best Mario game might just be on PS3, exclusively !!!
Ok we get you have fallen for the hype, now welcome back to reality, this game will not allow you to "create anything you want" it's basicaly a 2d physics based platfromer with a really nice editor and a clever online distribution system.

So true but Farooq works for Sony so he doesnt give a crap. Anyway LBP is a cute game filled with fresh ideas and many ppl gotta love it.

My sentiments exactly. I can see that this can become one of those neat cult games but I wouldn't expect it to be the end of the world in terms of gaming (as some people claim it to be). It's still bound by the rules set by it's designers (no, I don't fall for that "it's your game crap").

And if it's making games and sharing them online that you want, there are already plenty of solutions that allow you to make a game within the hour (xna, jme, etc.).

I heard you can re-create Shenmue, Counter-Strike and Rez using LPB editor !!111

Whenever that game Farooq was talking about ships, let me know. As for this game, it looks really unique and creative. I've seen what users have been able to do with somewhat more constrictive tools like Forza 2 and Mii creation, and have been surprised what's been created with the limitations. I wonder what we'll see from users with this.

Little big planet is a side scrolling platformer with a built in level editor and the main focus is on making your own levels...i don't see what there is not to like about it! Okay, so admittedly many player created maps will be crappy or depicting genitalia, but, there's still bound to be some fun levels and creative things happening with this game.

I'm most certainly looking forward to it and you know, i might just get a PS3 again when this drops :)

I never thought fanboyism could cheer me up, but Farooq's managed. :D

It reminds me of when me and my friends were so young we filled the gaps where REAL knowledge should be with totally made up fluffy stuff. Of course, noone else had a clue about anything either, so we'd just get so caught up in it we went home wide eyed from the most AWESOME SOUNDING GAMES EVER.

And it was so great because none of us were evil or anything. I mean Megido here visiting Wii threads is all about evil, but Farooq just seems wide eyed from the most awesome sounding game ever. :D

And while I will surely miss making uh.. Metal Gear Solid was it? In LBP, I think this looks utterly amazing. It's too bad it couldn't have come out when we expected it to because that would've given the PS3 a nice incentive to go with Uncharted in the run-up to christmas, but bad game forever, good game out eventually, etc, Miyamoto quote and so on.

I also expect it to have more staying power beyond the initial heart explosion than Loco "incredibly loveable but ultimately wafer thin" Roco did.

Wow, so i managed to reach the status of evil in only 175 days, eh? :D Pshh, fanboys my ass, I'm EVIL!

Looks awesome. Wanna see more levels. Outer space, Ratchet and Clank level, maybe?

saying im excited by it is an understatment. the prospect of making the whole of mario bro's kinda turns me on, but not as much as being original with my creativity. they recently added death to LBP (beore nothing in the world could actually kill you) and im hoping you can create basic enemy's and AI paths (otherwise my dreams of re-making mario will be very short lived when you come across a goomba and realise its a sticker attatched to a rock, although i supose it could just be mario themed??)

cant wait. and the little customisable sack boys/girls have a huge amount of charm despite being voiceless, almost faceless, blobs.

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
