Sackboy finds success at last, while Mass Effect 2 isn’t massively effective (LittleBigPlanet 2)

Posted on January 24, 2011

LittleBigPlanet didn’t set the world alight when it was released in 2008. Sure, it received rave reviews and got to the top of the PS3 charts, but the PS3 install base wasn’t so great at the time so it never really got the attention it deserved. Sony then claimed it would be a slow burner. Media Molecule stated that there would not be a sequel as it wasn’t that kind of game. Turns out a sequel was exactly what Sackboy needed to hit the big time – and now it’s here, he has.

Feedback — LittleBigPlanet 2 Delights, THQ Informs, And WoW Claims Another Free Soul

Posted on January 20, 2011

We know you are all super swamped crafting, molding, fine tuning your fantabulous imaginarious creations in Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet 2 at the moment, but we thought you’d like to know that the latest edition of your favorite video game webshow Feedback has arrived!

On this week’s episode, Adam Sessler welcomes Rob Manuel, Chris Monfette, and myself to discuss this week’s hottest game news, including THQ’s big gamer’s day that was held last week in New York City, LBP2, and why we fear we might never see Adam again (Yes. It’s WoW related).

Using some of the amazing new tools in LBP2, we were actually able to create a discussion around the following topics:

  • The PS3 version of Portal 2 includes a Steam “copy” of the game for either PC or Mac. It also features cross-platform co-op and chat. Does Valve know how to make nice, or what?
  • Epic Games will release the Gears of War Triple Pack on February 15 for those gamers who just came out of a five-year coma, or are a sucker for a great deal.
  • Natural disasters, political turmoil, troubled economic times, AND Nintendo has stopped making DSi’s? Coincidence? You be the judge.
  • THQ showed off a bunch of upcoming titles at a press event last week. Get the latest info on Homefront, Stacking, and WWE All-Stars in our even roundup.
  • LittleBigPlanet 2 dazzles and delights, and the gang tosses in their two handcrafted cents about Media Molecule’s latest brain-blasting title.

Feedback: Made from scratch every week by an underground dungeon full of Sackbots since 2011.

Wolfenstein 3D Level Created In LittleBigPlanet 2 Beta

Posted on December 08, 2010

If you’re curious to see the true potential of LittleBigPlanet 2’s user creation tools, feast your eyes on this. Beta player “RAPHAEL” has created an impressive level of Wolfenstein 3D, and though a work in progress, seeing what players can do in LBP 2 makes us that more excited about the game’s public release.

Check out the level of “Sackenstein 3D” in motion below.

The Future of ... Everything ! All of our Epictober Future of Posts

This week during Epictober, we took a look at the future of the major game genres and highlighted what lies beyond the horizon in the storm of games that are approaching on an imminent tidal wave of inbound 2010 titles. What shooters should you be prepared for? What fighting games should be on your radar? If leaping and jumping is your thing, then what platformers should you start thinking about?

Keep reading to get an excerpt from each of our prognosticating posts, and then head on to read the full features. Thanks for helping us make everything all the more Epic!

The Future of Shooters: Looking Forward At Crysis 2, Gears of War 3, Duke Nukem Forever And More

The Future of Shooters

  • Duke Nukem Forever: So why are we looking forward to DNF? Because it’s Duke f*&$king Nukem and it’s actually happening. Before PAX, I would have been more willing to believe that my mother had taken up stripping at 60 than to believe that DNF would ever come out. You saw my mom naked on stage dancing to “ABC” by the Jackson 5? Sure. Duke Nukem is coming out? Go f&*k yourself.

The Future of Action / Adventure Games: Looking Forward At Bioshock: Infinite, L.A. Noire, The Last Guardian And More

The Future of Action / Adventure

  • Batman: Arkham City: Arkham City refers to a section of Gotham which newly elected mayor Quincy Sharp has ordained as “no man’s land.” Sharp takes all the citiy’s various criminals and locks them in a slum, with no supervision. The rest of Gotham is kept safe by armed guards who patrol the perimeter. When Two-Face brings Catwoman into Arkham City with the intention of murdering her, Batman is forced to swing into action, save the day and crack some skulls along the way.

The Future of Platformers: Looking Forward At Portal 2, Disney Epic Mickey, LittleBigPlanet 2 And More

The Future of Platformers

  • LittleBigPlanet2: Sure, the original LittleBigPlanet is a play on the traditional platformer, and so is the upcoming sequel…but only if you want it to be. With all the new user-creation modes, the ability to transform this loveable Sackboy adventure into an RTS, an FPS or an arcade-style shooter – hell, pretty much any genre you could take the time to re-create – is poised to make LittleBigPlanet 2 into the ultimate meta-game.

The Future of Fighters

  • Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds: Definitely one of the most eagerly anticipated fighters in years, MvC3 seems hell-bent on dribbling out information about the game, one character at a time. Could you ever have imagined that we would have Arthur from Ghosts ‘n Goblins and M.O.D.O.K. from the Marvel Universe in the game? I mean, the guy is just a giant head in a floating chair. Gimme some Captain Britain or The Beyonder or something. I just can’t rally behind bighead.

The Future of RPGs

  • Star Wars: The Old Republic: A fully-voiced MMORPG is something that might have seemed damn near impossible a few years back, but leave it up to BioWare to actually make this absurdly ambitious prospect a reality. This also happens to be the first Star Wars-based title from the developer since it unleashed one of the greatest games of all time, RPG or otherwise, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, so it has that going for it, which is nice.

The Future of Strategy Games

  • Rock of Ages: Of all the strategy games on this list, it’s nearly impossible not to be the most excited about Rock of Ages, and that is due in no small part to the fact that it is entirely off the wall. In this game, you use a giant boulder to blow through 30 different unit types in an effort to destroy your enemy. But, these unit types are meant to stop your big, giant, rolling, round rock. It’s just that simple. You set up your ball and try to squash your opponent and pound his castle into splinters, while he sets up obstacles in your bath to throw your ball off course.

The Future of Motion Control

  • Sorcery: Finally, a game that lets you use the Move for something that makes perfect sense. Without trying to shove it in somewhere it doesn’t necessarily belong, Sorcery allows you to play as a wizard with a magic wand. This isn’t wimpy s@%t, though. You’ll use your wand to hurl magic missiles and do other awesome wizard stuff. Out of all the upcoming PlayStation Move titles, Sorcery excites us the most. It might seem a little on the head to use the Move as a wand, but why fight it? Being a wizard sounds good to us.

LittleBigPlanet 2: Catching Up With Media Molecule

Posted on October 15, 2010

There are so many things to be impressed by when you talking about Media Molecule’s recently/sadly delayed sequel LittleBigPlanet 2. Like, for instance, the fact that the developers accidentally stumbled across the idea of using the game’s new music sequencer to build entire levels. Or that the developers built LBP2 using just LittleBigPlanet. Oh, and the fact that instead of limiting yourself to levels, you can now create fully realized games of all genres and styles. You know. No big deal.

To fill the adorable hole in our hearts left by the game’s delay, we present our latest Epictober-fied look at LBP2 straight from the mouths of the folks behind one of our most anticipated games of next year.

And for even more LittleBigPlanet, check out 10 of Our Favorite LittleBigPlanet Levels, or the rest of our Epictober content below:
