LittleBigPlanet 2 First-Person Shooter Is Kind Of Ridiculous

You’re not really supposed to capture video from the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta. But we seriously doubt Sony are going to lock-down YouTube user TheFinalBurst’s uploads. His Micro Machine, Pac-Man and Air Hockey creations [we've embedded them after the jump - Ed] are absolutely stunning. But the first-person shooter concept is what grabbed our attention. We’re not quite sure how he’s pulled it off, even with LBP2’s new tools.

Damn that is impressive. This is just a few weeks with beta time? Imagine what we will have by next year.

Xulap2928d ago

That's what I thought as well.

This is only the BETA! The full retail game will have so many more options and features. There's no limit...

And not a few weeks, it's been a few days since the BETA started and we already have this? My mind will be blown whenever I get the game and get to play some community levels.

GT5 or LBP2?

Its actually Sony! :D

I was going to post this but was afraid that since it was from a private beta that it wouldn't be right.

There is a compilation video showing FPS, RPG, Dualstick shooter, etc. I wish I remembered it.

Of course, the mechanic is awesome, but you can see how it's limited by 2D scrolling. I wonder however if someone can mimic 3D with a 2D environment like in those Doom games. People don't even have to make shooters with side scrolling per se. Imagine a mini-game that rewards killing pop-up enemies, etc. (Like Duck Hunt)

This was done within a week or two. Imagine a full game with all the tools.

This is why LBP2 is my GOTY choice. I really hope I can get into the beta.

I bet the people behind EA's "Create" are feeling pretty stupid right about now.

RageAgainstTheMShine2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

Reminds me of OPeration Wolf Arcade game.
Man this is why LBP 2 is one of my top priority games this year. Along with Gran Turismo 5. : )

First I saw GT5 weather changing special effects and now this!
This one's a shocker!

Ohh fantastic you made me laugh pretty hard.. Sackboy with an ak47 I love it lol...

This is my favorite series, it's six parts, in LittleBigPlanet. If things like this can get made in the first one, LBP2 levels will win GOTY themselves.

COD Sackboy Warfare 2

Double Toasted2928d ago

I always thought LBP was the killer app for the PS3....this just solidified my assumptions.

iamnsuperman2928d ago

If this doesn't win any sort of GOTY I would be shocked the variety in it is amazing....lets just hope it plays as good as it looks

finbars752927d ago

Dam right with no lag or glitching but maybe that will be in the create department.

TheLastGuardian2927d ago

Sackboy Warfare 2 is saying it's not going to be good as the first one. o.O

The Vietcong have never looked so cute!

Tommykrem2927d ago

There is actually a very similar FPS in the first LBP. But it's more on rails.

A Cupcake for Gabe2927d ago

yeah but the iron sights and fluid movement really amaze the hell out of me. I am hoping you can jump in and out of this camera modes. You could make something that uses different perspectives like Master Blaster or Zelda II did. Imagine playing a 2D shooter then getting into a turret and going into 1st person mode....that would blow me away. And this is the beta.

pixelsword2927d ago

Does anyone know what happened to Microsoft's kodu? That was supposed to be their answer to LBP, but it dried-up on the 360 (haven's seen any updates)

Marquis_de_Sade2927d ago

It was only supposed to be the answer to LBP according to rabid MS fanboys.

A Cupcake for Gabe2927d ago

was it that "create" game that can make movies too? the one where your "pop-up" tool was some retarded alien? that was a joke if i've ever seen one.

moparful992927d ago

What is it about sony that attract such high caliber talent.. Sony wouldnt have recovered from the 360 effect if not for their dilligence and high quality catalogue of studios at their disposal.. This game alone is vindication for the ps3.... God bless sony.

ChronoJoe2927d ago

@Alpha I think you'll be able to imitate a 3D environment (in the way you describe) with the holographic material.

On topic though. The LBP fps is really simple. It's in LBP1 (where he uses sackboy, a jetpack and countless sensors to control the position of the gun) the bullets that are emitted each contain magnetic keys, on every enemy/explosive barrel magnetic switches are placed.

So bullets = keys
Targets (enemies, barriels) = switches

When a key is detected by a switch the object reacts (barrel explodes, enemy dissolves).

It's actually very simple. In LBP1 the manner in which he gets the gun to move isn't ideal, but in LBP2 it's all very easily achieved. Anyone will be able to create levels like this within an extremely short period of time.

Its amazing what a change in camera angle can do. Looks crazy.

NYC_Gamer2928d ago

Godmars2902928d ago
