Microsoft's Fable 2 and Sony's LittleBigPlanet – two of the biggest releases due this side of Christmas – will both hit store shelves without some of the unique features promised by the development teams.
Unacceptable, especially when both games were said to have gone gold. Last I checked, "going gold" meant the game was done. But if these weren't originally planned to be parts of the launch game, then why were they promoted as such? And so early on? I wouldn't say delay the game, because then we just wait longer, but honestly, it seemed like when they show a feature a year or two in advance, that they might have it ready for the game's launch. But, these things happen. It's just very unfortunate.
we buy their product, so they do it. :)
you might consider the fact that sony may be finalizing how to regulate the content on littlepigplanet. They need to have a good plan to deal with the first porn, racist, sexist, hateful level that comes out so to avoid bad publicity. I guarantee youll be checking out levels online by christmas.
yall will buy the product
i searched my feelings i know they have this prob^^
I extremely doubt it has anything to do with storage. I imagine they simply dont want to delay either game and miss their release dates.
Well... about Fable 2 i don't care cause i didn't like the first one and won't buy this, but about LBP... i don't care anyway, since it's fantastic and i'm going to get it asap. And a patch for the missing feature is going to be released soon anyway, so i prefer playing and practiging and then get the feature than wait longer (i'm playing it since i'm a beta tester and even without creating levels online with others i'm having huge fun).
Comparing flopple with LittleBigSystemsellerTripleA. Dont even mention a flop like Flopple with LBP in the same sentence, xbots.
If you get the drift
You did it twice, i should kill you and rape your corpse. :O Just kidding... We gonna hang you. :)
what dont mention what? LBP? oh yeah the little kids game where you play with sack people and make your own pen1s levels wow must be fun playing a level you actually made yourself, poor sony fanboys trying to make out like LBP is a system seller/killer give me a break, are you seriously so desperate for games that you have to hype this kiddy game up so much, oh sony fanboys c'mon lets get real here, 2.5d sackboys lol, its like klonoa but build it yourself, pft LBP your only good game left for 08, looks like wee turd people but hey im sure you sony fangirls are used to playing with sh1t.
Blue Dragon, eh?
why are you all crying about it you are going to get it in an update most likely a couple of weeks after release date so i dont see a problem and neither should you lot
While it doesn't really affect me at all, Im wondering how these missing features will effect a review? You cant really critique features that aren't in the game yet a couple of weeks after launch these games will have a massive feature added to them, how will reviewers take this into account?
i would say LBP is losing less than fable 2, co-op play was going to be addition
I had no real plan to use the missing feature in LBP, but the missing feature in Fable 2 was ,my primary reason for buying (followed by the money glitch :) )
Online create isn't that big of a deal. I'd rather create my own levels by myself than have a friend joking around and killing my designs and making it take longer to make. Also, I'd rather surprise my friends with the levels I create than them knowing it inside and out. I don't think most people will care too much about it missing, as the fun will come from playing levels online with their friends.
its a very tricky thing to do right in lbp it could be realesed and all buggy or wiat for that feature while they clear it up reviewers review on what they get if there not told theressomething big coming for it unless they follow everything they wont know
I could care less. These are two major games and I want to play them as soon as I can regardless of a couple missing features.
Good to see that LittleBigFlop will be exactly what Phony promised! /sarcasm. Sorry to hear that about your one potential system seller. Phony sure could use another 10 sales. Ah well, there's always 2020, I hear it's the year of the BS3. But look on the bright side, you guys can still play with brown sacks all you want, there just won't be any online jerk sessions until after launch. :(
Can someone clarify exactly what online create mode is. Does this mean I can't create and publish levels I make online? Or does this mean that I can't play online co-op with my friends?
You and your buddies cannot coop create a map. But youll be able to create your maps (by yourself) and play them in coop.
Create mode is where you and friends actually make a level online to publish. The game already has co-op play, hell, the Beta has it.
fable 2 it's not that bad cause it has a strong singlepalyer. but LBP? damn i'm the beta and best about the game is the community levels.
I don't think you understand what the feature that is being delayed in LBP is. It's just the co-op creation mode. You and a friend can make a level together online. You can already do this offline, but they are holding back the online mode. It's not really a bad thing though. There are a ton of tutorials to get through before you can unlock every item, and people are going to need to get used to the tools. In my opinion this isn't really a problem at all. Let people get used to making levels before they get together. You don't want your friend to be completely incompetent when he's trying to help. Anyway, I don't particularly think this feature will work all that well. I tried it offline, and honestly it doesn't work. The camera gets all zoomed out and you have to get close to each other to be able to see anything. If the online co-op creation uses seperate cameras though, it could be quite fun.
i stand correct my friend. thank for enlightning me. co op creation is not that great. i tryed it in the beta and it was fubar
I dont think LBP has anything to worry about, as far as reviews go. From what we are seeing from the beta, thus far, it will easily get a 9 or higher out of 10 with or without the online. its that fun
Any site that don't give it a 10 are wrong.
nah there not the game is a high 8 to a low 9.
Well im sure people would much rather want lbp add that feature later, they wouldnt want it delayed again.. Lbp has already been delayed so people would get really pissed off, just look at sony home!
I say, so what if there aren't planned features in the games at launch. As long as they are coming on their release date and get patched later, and don't effect the overall experience then there is no big deal.
I'll be getting LBP day one!! theres no reason why i'm not goin to have fun right away!!
PureGamer - 40 minutes ago nah there not the game is a high 8 to a low 9. you are the dumbest gamer ever there is nothing on anything even close to LBP so how can it only deserve a 8 to a 9 grow up thicko
Sigh such a sad sad sad person Teh Cell i almost feel sorry for you. LBP will be big as much you dislike it. Im looking forward to LBP. Are you looking forward to Banjo Kazooie LOL ?
