This being a beta and all, it's not a review, rather an outline of some of the things others felt the need to mention about it. Is it worth its hype? What do you guys think about the beta?
nick says how its all and more about the game saying it lives up to the hype and more he must be in the beta cause hes saying he loses track of time playing it cant wait for the game check out the intro andthe 1st level in the beta for your self its good http://www.videogaming247.c...
calling this an article, is like calling uwe boll a good director

LAME attempts to undermine LBP Others see how awesome LBP plays here http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... the guy is off air but he will be back soon
huh. great article if you like the writing of a ten year old.
...Why was my comment deleted? I didn't do anything wrong...
Hm. Well, the game STILL has my interest peaked. And, it's a first day purchase for me. And, I agree.. Hopefully the Good user generated content is ready very quickly, cause I ain't one to create maps. However, as that is a big part of the game, I will hafta try it.
I cant understand how someone could not like LBP, well, that is unless they're some adrenaline fueled teenager who isn't content unless fixated on some burly man with one hand on his "gun".
If you cant have the best on your console then talk trash about it
oops...wrong reply...agreed though...
He needs a reason to use his ps3 huh? Sounds like a fan boy to me. There are many good games for the ps3. Not just Socom.
Shhh, don't say that! They're supposed to continue thinking about there's no games on the PS3!
guess he's one of those "this takes alot of time...i think i'll complain about it.".........ITS A LEVEL IDIOT...IT SHOULD TAKE TIME(regardless of ur given materials)
I'll never understand why people try to use that complaint. If you don't like it, sell it. If you have no "reason" to use it, sell it. It's that simple. There are plenty of other people that will be more than happy to take the system off your hands.
I already had more than enough reasons to play my PS3, this just adds to the onslaught.
Exactly, there are plenty of games on the ps3. That misconception of "ps3 has no games" is LONG gone. Only fanboys try to use that excuse now
"but if someone didnt like the ps3 lineup...that would make them a fanboy? something's not right there (granted the guy is an idiot anyway for buying a system he doesn't seem to have any interest in playing)" Not at all man. Not liking the lineup doesn't make a person a fanboy. Keeping a system you don't even like for the sake of needing a "reason" to use it however, makes a person stupid
It's not that PS3 has no games, it's that the games PS3 does have (and it DOES have good ones) are old and I've already played. I'm not going to continue playing the same game for 3-6 months waiting for the next best thing, hence, Im looking for NEW games. You guys sometimes are thickheaded. Any game worth having in the psat few months I either have played on 360 and are multiplatform (not ashamed in saying i buy multiplats for 360 and i dont consider multiplats toward the "Has no games" argument) or I've played (you can only sit through MGS4 so many times).
Honestly, get your head out of your asses and stop assuming everyone is this raging fanboy.
Also, Im keeping my system for the exclusives. I would be dumbfounded to sell my System before playing the new Socoms, Killzone, Resistance, etc. Again, you guys just misconstrue words because you don't think about anything but trying to call me a raging fanboy or an idiot in the most clever way possible.
he meant 'only fanboys use that' as in someone that has no intention of ever buying or playing a PS3 use that...people that don't own or want to own a PS3, yet have a strong liking of 'the other side', usually spout off about the PS3 not having any titles...which, to them, justifies their system of choice...despite being completely incorrect, it makes them feel better...
its a security issue...if everyone doesn't like the platform they chose to invest in...they feel unwanted or irrelevant...ironically...its because of what they do to prevent feeling unwanted, that makes them exactly that...
"Keeping a system you don't even like for the sake of needing a "reason" to use it however, makes a person stupid."
Perhaps this person bought into the hype of "wait til this comes out", "wait til that comes out". And still haven't found a game that they like. (which is why they need a reason to use it.) So they are starting to panic a little bit. That doesn't make them a stupid person. What's stupid is when someone called a person stupid because they disagree with that person's opinion. Perhaps that particular thought process is stupid, but that doesn't justify calling a person that you don't know "stupid".
Anyway, I heard a lot of people saying "Once you get use to the controls the games is a lot of fun." Wasn't that the same thing a lot of people were saying about "Too Human" only to be shot down by fanboys? I'm by no means saying that this game will not be fun, as a matter of fact I want it to be a great game, because I want to buy it.
I'm just stating a few things I've noticed.
Thank you. At least now I know someone understood what was meant @Kingme Look, the bottom line is, if you don't like it, don't keep it. This person gives off the impression that he/she is a well informed gamer and has had the ps3 for awhile. So yeah, why keep the system you claim to have no "reason" to use? It's not his opinion I call stupid Kingme. It's the action (or lack thereof) I call stupid. There's a difference
"Anyway, I heard a lot of people saying "Once you get use to the controls the games is a lot of fun." Wasn't that the same thing a lot of people were saying about "Too Human" only to be shot down by fanboys? I'm by no means saying that this game will not be fun, as a matter of fact I want it to be a great game, because I want to buy it. I'm just stating a few things I've noticed." So what? If you want to use Too Human, the same thing can be said about Lair right? Once you got used to the control the game was lots of fun. Yet fanboys shot that game down too right
Yea... spending 500-600 bucks just to get rid of it for 300-400 bucks is an AWESOME investment. GL on wallstreet. BUY HIGH! SELL LOW!
Like I said, the person gave off the impression that he/she is a well knowledge gamer. So there really isn't an excuse of "I bought it due to hype" no matter what price he/she bought it for. Secondly, if he sold it, he can get about $400- $500 for it assuming it's a 60gb. Third, don't compare the vg market to the stock market. It's not like game consoles go up in value the way stocks do. How much was the 360 when it first came out? If you sold yours, just now much would you get for it? See my point?
wow thegamingGod...looks like no one apparently understands your initial comment...
Do any of you people arguing with him understand what it means to be 'an informed consumer'?...why would this author buy a PS3 then turn around and complain about it not having any games?...
that is what he is saying...its really not hard to rationalize, at least I would think...Did all of you get a PS3 as a gift, or steal it or something?...if the author was 'given' a PS3, and is now frustrated with its gaming horizon...so be it...SELL IT!...that is what GamingGod is saying...
on the other end though, when you purchase it yourself, and are then pissed that there are 'no games' for it...thats your own stupid fault, its not like Sony of all companies has any problem telling your about games that are a long way off...everyone that purchased a PS3 within the last 1.5 years has had access and updates to the fall lineup that is on the verge of releasing right now...you also know of all the major titles coming in 2009, save a few surprises most likely...so what the hell is this guy getting at...'well I bought a PS3 for unannounced titles for 2010...it sucks though because I don't like anything out so far or whats been confirmed for release'...
a lot of you are acting like its not his fault for buying a PS3 then not being happy with the lineup...that is due to his own ignorance, and he reserves absolutely no right to criticize anyone but himself...
Just one reason I don't own a 360...I don't particularly care for the 360's exclusive lineup, at least of what has been released and/or announced so far...I also don't particularly care for paying to play online...so you know what?...I never bought one...you guys are acting like it would be ok if I did buy a 360 and came on here screaming "wtf?!, you have to pay for XBL?"...or "where are all the great games?"...whenever you are buying yourself something like that, look into what the hell the thing has coming to it, and already going for it...when you disregard either of those, you have no room for complaining...
and some of you are also saying 'well maybe he just bought into the hype and this and that'...doesn't matter, that is still his own fault...Sony does have pretty powerful marketing in that sense...but if you bought a PS3 for an, at that point, unreleased game...then were disappointed with what the released game played like...take it as a life lesson...this sounds like a bunch of my Wii owning friends...they always ask me 'why did I buy this thing, there are no games for it'...what am I supposed to say to that?...you are right...there isn't anything worthwhile on it...funny thing though is that you can scalp that on ebay for more than retail...the current market condition of this industry is an entire other discussion in itself...
But how would he know that games and features announced pre-launch of the PS3 still wouldn't be released, or would now be canceled or multi-platform? It's not his fault he can't see into the future.
That's the exact argument I was trying to make the other day when some clown was blogging about the value of Arcade 360. He started adding accessories onto it to compare it to the 399 PS3.
My argument was, that if a person wanted a more pimped out 360 he/she would get the Pro or the Elite yet no one could understand that. It's funny how easy it is to understand when you're trying to make the point isn't it.
Edit: Additionally as Kleptic says "I don't particularly like the exclusives", blah blah etc for the 360 so I never bought one. "I don't want to pay for online," yada yada, etc. Here's a guy (Blogger) that claims to have bought a PS3 and now he's questioning whether he should have bought it. And he gets grief from you about it. Now had he said he wish he hadn't bought the 360, you would be supporting him. So, what does that say about you, I mean really.
One other thing, is it just me or does anyone else seem to feel that when ever something is said to TheGamingGod, it is immediately defended by lodossrage and viceversa. Perhaps it's a 3 time coincidence for me, just seems odd.
It's a fanboy sounding comment, simple as that. There was no need to say it, and only a fanboy would. Also he never had one good thing to say about the game, which also seems a little fanboyish, biased and generally a article weighs the good and bad. He should change the name of the article to; "All the bad things about LBP". Didn't even mention graphics or physics or anything.
I guess I shouldn't have brought up the 360...I walked right into that one...
this is all I, and the gamingGod I believe, were trying to say...
He bought a PS3...he is complaining about the PS3 not having any games...what we are saying is: then why not sell it?...and moreover, why did he buy it in the first place?...thats it...nothing more than that...no hidden agenda...
we are not giving him grief because he thinks the PS3 has no games...gaminggod was stating that that simply is normally a fanboy comment...which brings up the overall question we were both getting at...
again...if it has no games...then why did he buy it in the first place...then write a blog article complaining about it?...
now where you messed up my 360 example is beyond me...I was making an example of it being like me buying a 360, knowing I didn't want any of its games, and that I didn't want to pay for XBL, then writing in my blog asking "where are all the games for the 360?"...thats all I meant...that example was simply showing how silly it is to do something like that, hence my entire post on being an 'informed consumer' or whatever...its simply that if the guy claims the thing doesn't have any games worth playing, then he is an idiot for buying one in the first place and has no room to complain about it...
it's more or less testing the servers for stability.
Yes MM have said this. Its a Beta, not Demo.
I am very impressed with what you can do with this beta and to downplay this saying that "it isn't even the demo" is extremely exciting!
Even more an old beta demo, just like Resistance 2.
yeah Price just confirmed that the current closed beta for Resistance 2 was a build dating back to Sony's Gamer Day in May 08...when asked by Gamespot about the complaints of the lacking visuals of that build, he bluntly stated 'there is a reason that we and Sony asked private beta members to not post clips of it on the net...'
not that that really has anything to do with LBP...but it does mean the final title will have a little more polish most likely...
by definition though a beta is mostly for debugging...not for enhancing visuals...meaning the transition from beta to 'gold' usually is just the lack of bugs...all mechanics and assets are already in place (although some features may be removed for a beta test, read: Halo 3) and working 'properly'...and all that is left is some slight polishing to certain effects and removal of redundancies...
ever since beta tests have become so popular though, the real meaning behind it gets lost...there are times that there is a 'beta test', but you are not actually playing what could be called a true beta...thats mostly it...beta to gold doesn't take very long, or at least doesn't with a decent developer...but with how studios are always on the burner trying to get a game out the door, they don't have time to hault development to take notes from a beta test, and leave the finished game, that has bugs only, just sit there for several weeks...hence...the 'beta' build released to the public isn't really a beta at all...but just an old build with glaring graphical problems, yet still allows them to gather some information while they are polishing the utter shat out of the more recent build...if that makes any sense...insomniac claimed that they may never reach a true beta window, in which they could be polishing up the last bit of visual effects literally the day before it goes to print...
i stopped reading when he said he is desperately looking for games to play on his ps3 this fall.
Yeah he's obviously a fanboy - I suppose he has loads of games that just recently came out to play on his 360 like, err..., err... all the multi-plat games that are also on PS3!
I am desperately looking for time to play all my games and juggle life.
I can't get the hype this game is getting, it's the dumbest most boring game I have ever laid eyes on. This is getting this hype cause it's a sony exclusive and that's all. Sony fanboys hope it's the best so they can tell the 360 fanboys look what I have and you don't, sony is loaded with kids like this.
Or possibly, PS3 owners are hopeing its 'the best' because they want another awesome game to play? Why do you assume people only want a good game on a system to serve as ammo against another console.
Don't worry, you won't be getting it or playing it. EDIT: @rbanke Exactly, what a moronic statement to suggest that we don't want to play a game as much as to say that someone else can't.
Well lets break it down here- YOU personally can not understand why this game looks and sounds so good because YOU also can see nothing in the trailers, articles, (beta? have you played it yet?)that seems to appeal to YOU. So either you are blind, or a hater, or possibly just so unique in your tastes that this does not appeal to you. But it isn't just unappealing is it? "dumbest most boring game I have ever laid eyes on" so that rules out the blindness. And when this game blows up, you'll be sitting on your angry chair, playing I presume to be a game that is not the most dumb and boring ever, and you will honestly be telling yourself.... "They love Sony soooo much that they have made themselves believe that the game is fun! F---king fanboy Sony lovers! They believe their own hype stupid fools!" Are you for real?
yeah dude...believe it or not...some of us do want a great game, and to take it for exactly that...you are exactly what is wrong with websites like this...you assume people only want a great game so they can come on the internet and throw it at 'the other team'...
...Are you serious?!
You "can't get the hype"... well, that explains it right there. It's out of your tastes simple as that. Does that mean that anyone who's looking forward to this game (like me) is not genuinely hyped for it? There will always be games that we as individuals might not see appeal in... but we mustn't believe that only our opinions mean anything or that they are the only genuine ones. Personally the new Banjo Kazooie doesn't interest me (I have a 360 as well), but I understand alot of other gamers out there are looking forward to that one. How am I to say it's a bad game? I don't. I haven't played it so I can't make that sort of judgement... and even if I had and still didn't like it I wouldn't go around saying everyone who does is delusional. No, I understand that there are many different types of gamers out there. One game won't appeal to them ALL.
And no matter what side a 'fanboy' is on... they always wish to have something the other side doesn't have. That's how fanboys work. It's not ONLY PS3 fanboys or ONLY Wii fanboys or ONLY 360 fanboys. Fanboys are pretty much the same everywhere. Don't lump 'fans' with 'fanboys'.
Strange considering the thread about the LBP beta on NeoGaf seems to have nothing but awesome things to say from people who've been playing the beta since it came out yesterday.
I read alot of it and i really cant find anyone saying anything bad at all. And what it comes down to, i trust the people of neogaf more than some blog i never heard of ;)
I have the beta and the only reason I am not playing it right now is because I am at work...I did contemplate calling in sick but I need the coin for the full game along with numerous others that are coming out PS...the game is awesome!
Cuz I read the first 5 pages, and I only found 1 post that had any impressions at all (the OP). Just sayin. That thread is a beta key spam thread more than an impressions thread.
The Lazy One, the impressions in the OP are from the thread. People didnt even get into the beta until the thread was several pages deep, which is probably why you didnt see people talking about it ;)
That comment about socom not saving it from the "fall onslaught" suspciously strange.
No kidding...i think the entire blog should be in the open zone
that site is connected to Torrance Davis. you know, that guy from the "warzone"
it's kinda cute :)
its obviosly for kids or grown up men still thinking they are kids.
i will have my fable 2, fallout 3, gears of war 2, call of duty 5,....
you can have your litle big baby planet , socom (looks sooo last gen),
and (thinking)and (thinking more)??????
ps3 is the worst system.
ha ha , you all thought lbp was a system sellar. kids dont buy $500 consoles.
i bought my ps3 for some exclusives , but god of war 3 aint releasing any time soon , killzone got hammered by some hands on reviewers. i really dont know why i bought it???????????????????????????? ????
final fantasy 13 coming to xbox 360 too.
some one remind me why i bought a ps3, pleeaaassee!!!!!!!!!!!
the reason why i have 1 bubble is because of the ps3 fanboys.
you dont have to be too brainy to work that out
e.g xbox 360 sux (1)disagree (234)agree
i am quite content with one bubble , i am not like those people(ps3 fanboys) that hav 10 -20 accounts. i dont really care about bubbles.
at least you posted your flamebait in the open zone. I can say the same thing btw, but instead of PS3, i write xbox 360 as the worst system. "edit: the reason why i have 1 bubble is because of the ps3 fanboys. you dont have to be too brainy to work that out e.g xbox 360 sux (1)disagree (234)agree i am quite content with one bubble , i am not like those people(ps3 fanboys) that hav 10 -20 accounts. i dont really care about bubbles." lolololol but you are talking S**t right now LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.
you do say the same thing so why have ago at him for acting like you?
It is obvious why you only have 1 bubble, and if you could take you head out of your @$$ you would know that the 360 actually has a lot more children than the PS3
because its fun to sh*t on people like you.
Killzone got good previews... Thats why I hate this site, people like you use selective reading to pull an opinion only a diluted fanboy could derive. You have one bubble because you are annoying and spew propaganda that makes absolutely no sense. Just because people are excited for this game gives you no right to bash them. Go play banjo.
Really pwnsause? Thats what you think you're doing? I bet you're one of those people that post a comment on the internet insulting someone, posting the lies you believe are true then sits back in complete belief that the person its aimed at is on the floor curled up in a ball crying. Completely believing that the person read their whole comment and is actually fazed by it. The reality is people reading your comments are sat there tutting, shaking their heads thinking "it's such a shame, I'm glad he doesn't live near me" Also drekken "You have one bubble because you are annoying and spew propaganda that makes absolutely no sense. Just because people are excited for this game gives you no right to bash them. Go play banjo." And again thats what you do so why have ago at someone else for doing that. And people are excited for banjo so you have no right to bash them. edit below: do you ps3 owners even read comments? At what point have i even mention razy? I'm talking about those two and their hypocrisy. Having ago at others for behaving like them. I might have mentioned that. I'm trying to see how they can justify the reasons they use to take on 360 owners. I don't care for razy, waaaay too much like nasim.
Are you seriously trying to defend radzy, or are you just looking to justify reasons to take on PS3 owners?
You don't have to use the persons name to be "defending them". What I am saying is you are "coming to the rescue" of a clear fanboy. No, you are not saying outright justifying what Radzy is saying but you are "defending" him just the same. Let's remember that this is the "open zone" and someone flaming is going to get retaliated against. The open zone is here for a reason. Edit: You want to talk about hypocrite...how about how you just bashed Drekken trying to call him out. Why are you acting so high and mighty?...We are dealing with video games here!
So by that logic, even though its flawed as i was not defending him and as i posted the comments shouldn't i know better than you what they meant, you're defending drekken and pwnsause and their hypocrisy? edit: i said And again thats what you do so why have ago at someone else for doing that. And people are excited for banjo so you have no right to bash them. so if you see that as bashing him then every single comment on here is someone bashing someone else. That means you're bashing me. Whats your point? I don't see you calling them out on their actions just me, why? You're as bad as them. Taking the high and mighty route but you're being very selective in who you 'bash' and whats acceptable for one person but not for others. do you not see how you're being a hypocrite. Its ok for them and you but should i do the same or more likely do what you think i'm doing its wrong?
I don't know....I am not even sure what I am saying now....I am just trying to kill time at work 'til I can go home and play the beta some more. Let's just agree to disagree as I was only trying to do what I think you were trying to do, only for opposite reasons...I think.
"Let's just agree to disagree as I was only trying to do what I think you were trying to do, only for opposite reasons...I think." ok. That's how i see it.
see, i didnt even have to talk and you got sh*ted on LOLOLOLOLOL
The other half of your games will flop Have fun.
Pretty sure this game has taken over every games convention and media event over the course of the year because it's the most innovative game not only of this generation so far but in quite some time. Along with the features of the game this is why it has been given so much hype and not because it's a Sony exclusive, that's just an amazing bonus.
