Game looks great as always, but i absolutely hated the video.

That video would have been absolute gold if they had got David Attenborough to do the voice in the video. Unfortunately, it lacked charm like the previous videos we've seen.

Game still looks like a gem though.

Ok the sackboy thing was cute before but now it's starting to drag. that was one hell of a boring video.

i think it was a great video, can't wait to create some kickass levels, i have tons of ideas already.

Agreed.

that's exactly what I thought when I was watching it. Attenborough would have made this video awesome :)

It's starting to drag because for better or worse, they're taking forever to finish the game. In hindsight, revealing it seemingly "in full" so early, it has sort of outstayed it's welcome a bit at this point.

But that is always unfortunate, and very common really. I think it's going to end up a much more satisfying overall package thanks to the extra dev time, but it would've been nice if it could've come out back when the love for these little guys was at its peak.

However, although this is all true and stuff and I see the sentiment, I gotta take time out to pour buckets of praise on top of Sony's heads for the likes of this and Loco Roco. Charm is so hard to come by these days, and there's seemingly no point in trying to keep it alive. Having a title like this, this high profile, be least of all about death and pain and guns is just downright admirable.

Sackboy IS on the way to potentially becoming an icon unheard of since the 16 bit era, and that makes up for the prolonged PR state of LPB in my book.

And then you'll get people who just won't take to the character anyway, but that's kind of expected.

I agree and it's a major problem in the industry. It happens to a lot of games like Too Human and Fable 2. Don't get me wrong, I can't wait to play Fable, but games like these are announced and previewed far too early. Games shouldn't be announced or previewed more than 6 months before release IMO.

I absolutely agree. A year is okay so it can feature in one E3 (or equivalent) conference and they can announce a solid date at that point.

The reason this got shown so early was that Sony needed it. It came away a winner from that E3 and has benefited far more from that than any overkill fatigue will take away now.

As for the vid - I liked the content. Much more actual gameplay shown that other vids. Obviously Attenborough would have been preferable to a poor Steve Irwin impersonator but there you go. Nice to see the 75% behind sackboy view featuring in play - and also the football game at the end looks to have some new concepts in it too. Scoreboard in the background and goals to put the ball in.

whenever i see this game it makes me smile, and thats enough to get me to buy it. video was a little long, but the content was good imo.

then people would say that the game is taking itself too seriously, there's no pleasing people.

The video it self wasn't anything spectacular, but I was happy to see the different levels and enemies will be facing.
Commented on 2008-09-10 21:34:05
Just like Halo 3, the hype will be this games selling point while the gameplay will recieve positive reviews,good or bad. As for what I saw in the video, I'm by no means impressed. But that's just a matter of opinion at the moment because I haven't got the chance to play the game. So there must be more to it than what I saw. I hope.

Brilliant just brilliant cant wait to create some levels

I didn't like the fake accent so much, but I thought it was a good concept for a video as well as the content itself.

First time they've shown time of day in LBP, which is a cool feature, and obviously they showed a lot of new environment / enemy concepts in this video for the first time.

Does anyone know if this game has offline multiplayer and if so, how does it work?

Obviously it does, they've showed tons of it, 4 player on the same screen offline, of course there's online too before you ask.

gaminglue was selling lbp premium packs. i bought one for the extra ds3 and plush sackboy and sold off the unopened game :P email them first to check stock availability because last month when my mate ordered his, he was told that there would be a 2 week delay.
