Gamersyde has just released a new trailer for LittleBigPlanet
This is innovation at its finest
Exactly, Where's that Wii guy who's always posting about the Wii + Innovation?
This is real Innovation. You don't need motion controls to have innovative gameplay.
Can't wait for this.
Now ive seen all of the trailers, and interviews, and storys,........but this game just doesnt do it for me, honestly it looks quite boring, and crappy to be honest, I would say its more of a wanna be game developers type of game......nothing really edge of your seat fun
@below lol gnarly racoons....but yet my point remains...Gamers want to Game!!! if they wanted level creation they would go play Rollercoaster Tycoon ...or The Sims.....
well...lynx, thats exactly what the game is, a game for wanna be developers. Got a creative mind? You're gonna love it! Obviously your head is full of dust and gnarly racoons, but there a lots of people among the gaming community that are fascinated with this game. Still, if you're not into creating stuff, then you can just play the levels people create. Casual gamers would love that. People enjoyed just playing loco roco didn't they? This game is ground-breaking, if you don't get it, its really your loss, but there are tons of people who are incredibly intrigued by this game
"This is real Innovation. You don't need motion controls to have innovative gameplay."
Nice dichotomy. Not everything is mutually exclusive, you know.
There's not a wii fan out there that would argue against this being innovative. I also doubt there are too many outside úber fanbois that would say that no one can innovate without motion controls. That's just silly. What I would say is that it's a shame that devs get so caught up in their 'by the numbers' shooters, sports games, rpgs, etc that they don't do more stuff like this. This is the most excitement I've felt over a game in years. Why isn't anyone trying something different?
I guess that I'm more interested in creating than playing along though, and in that I may be different than most gamers. So my tastes may be different and there's nothing wrong with that. But I know there's a lot of people who hardly even played a videogame before who are wowed by this concept.
People have said in other threads that this is great, but not a system seller. Well, mark it down, cause I will own a ps3 the moment this is released. This game, by itself, makes it worth the purchase.
Lynx, there are thrillers out there every year that will keep you on the edge of your seat at the movie theatres. Nothing wrong with those, though it can be like a sugar high, not as long lasting or fulfilling. On the other hand, there are a lot of creative art films that really engage your mind, make you think about spirituality or relationships, inspire you to do something new... If gaming is limited to adrenaline experiences, then it's missing out on commenting on the majority of human experience and thus is very limited as an artform. Nothing wrong with the one, but I think we should be open to other types.
is it just me or does this remind anyone of Yoshi's story for the n64?
The graphics direction and the music seems to be JUST like it
looks like it's shaping up to be the best 2d platformer released in forever
This game is gonna be revolutionary.... I think it can become the most addictive game of all time.
because the Wii IS FOR CHILDREN. The ONLY good thing about that trailer was the music, is anyone over 12 going to play this game? Not me I can tell you that much. People who spend over $300 bucks (adults) dont want games like these, in closing Little big planet = Big flop
i WILL quote you on that when you're proven wrong.
Welcome to the ignored list lawman1108. That was quite possibly the most retarded thing I have ever read. You sir (as the title of my comment so lovingly states) are the retarded offspring of six monkeys having butt sex with a squirrel.
@ Comment by Shadow Flare
Very well said. I gave you positive feedback and agreed with your comment.
hope its good
YOUR CHILD can't wait. This my Sony fan boy friends is not your answer
FUNNY, I SUMMONED YOU BEFORE AND HERE U ARE
lawman youre still a douche ...........a fat ugly chicks douche, at that.
HA FKN ZING !!
i really love this game and the more they show the better cos it gives people more ideas of what they know they could do with levels. Brilliant, and the character customisation seems just as advanced as level creation
I love the look and the innovation of this game, but I've always wondered what you're supposed to do? Like, what is the point of creating all that stuff? What is the objective of each level? Do you need to create things to get your little men from A to B? Or what?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
The devs have stated that there will be tons of objective based levels that'll come with the game. There might even be a story.
the "objectives" are going to have a very old skool feel to them by the looks of it ^_^
apparently you'll be able to create your own objectives. an example they gave was time attack levels.
in addition in the various levels there will be special item placed. You might be given a time limit, and you'll have to procure X number of items before the time runs out. The item you've obtained will then be able to be used as a part of your level or part of your clothing. i think there will be a slow trickle of more items and special levels media molecule has online, and people will compete for that rare thing.
lastly they promised "enemies" and even "bosses" in the levels.
the good thing about these trailers is that they showcase the level of creativity in the game. the bad thing is that they don't really articulate visually enough about the final product. When it gets closer to realease we'll see more i reckon.
There are three modes to LBP - Create, Play, Share.
From what we've seen some of the objects you place down on the level when you are in 'create' mode are collectables.
So you can create levels (and adjust them or customise them on the fly when playng) for a unique platform game experience and then share these levels with the world so others can download your level, play it and rate it. The best rated or downloaded levels will appear on leaderboards.
We're sure there are other objectives too and other types of game object that will see you doing all sorts of things, and through downloadable content the develoeprs could come up with new game items all the time.
Hope that helps.
Well the best answer you can get is watching the original GDC video where the developers talk you through it. However, LittleBigPlanet is to gaming what YouTube is to videos. You create a level, and share it with the world. And the creativity is endless, so you create levels to any look, size, anyway you want. Its also physics based so when objects fall down, they fall down realistically and interact with other objects. And you can create mechanical objects too. You can also create levels with friends online, at home whatever. Taylor you level to how want it, and then share it! The way i like to think of it best is, im creating my own megadrive game (like sonic), but with awesome graphics and real life physics, and i can share my hardwork with everyone to enjoy. And the fact i can do something that i wanted to do when i was a kid, to make my own game like sonic the hedgehog, is just fascinating
Imo, the goal of the game is to have fun with your friends and be creative. That's it. And it's absolutely brilliant.
You can of course just play objective based levels made by other players. There will be hundreds of them.
So will I be able to play this game online?
Yes, you can play this game online, or even just mess around and build levels online, with at least 3 friends (4-players), maybe more.
Lol who gave you a disagree? Try going to the main site. Littlebigplanet.com I think it is.
as far as i know its an online co-op type game where u make ur own levels and play others made off the net. they have been pretty mum about the game. there is an emotion system of some sort for the sackboy's, that i desparetly want more info on.
and another hope i have is a meeting place where u can go and hang out with other ppl online to compare sackboys and have lil costume contests. maybe have some sorta lil quests u can do to unlock new customization pieces for ur sackboys. ok now im getting to far ahead. :D but i cant see the trailer cuz im at work sniffle :(
Hopefully they'll allow people to create levels and upload them, unless this is already planned.
It is indeed, and you can play created levels online with people (who can then edit then on the fly).
blows me away everytime i see it.
my brain starts moving a mile a minute, think of the things i`ll be doing w/ this.
You can't help smilling when watching this title play. Its appeal is almost universal and its the first of what I expect to be lots of 'user content' games. Surely we all we want to have a go at being creative, but the tools for playing have never been so accessable and fun!
If you aren't intrigued and fascinated by the promise of this title, then surely you can't be a gamer?? :)
This will be huge!
the only people who would hate on this game are people who can't afford the....basically xbox 360 fanboys
ie. that troll who was disagreeing with everyone at the start of these comments
I'd suggest claiming that xbox fanboys (who are, i agree, complete wastes of space) cant afford the game or a ps3 is a pretty shoddy attempt at trolling really... but thats just me.
It's stupid of me to think that 360 owners are short on cash when they can waste money on useless HD-add ons that'll be redundant in a year, and countless repair fees. But that's just me
nicely done. Proof positive that you are a dribbling, ranting sony fankid yourself. Would have been better not to say anything really - save a few bubbles, and not end up looking like the rest of those rabid freaks.
Sh!tty work PC wont let me watch it!!
is it new footage?
Well, its basically the same trailer from the Spike VGA but who can complain about mre LBP.
cool, i havent seen it yet then, cant wait to get home, this game (IMO) is the best looking console game of next year.
just makes me smile everytime!
Right there with you man, loved it since the very 1st time they unleashed it at GDC.
This definately takes the word "USER-CREATED" to another level.
What was going on in that trailer lol
And now I find the music firmly trapped inside my head :(
The previous demo I saw was wonderful though :)
I hope we get a Beta soon since it looks like HOME may not come this year. I'm truly impressed by the PS3's strong line-up next year. I'm going to buy twice the games I bought this year.
I want to buy all the games but christmas wipes me out with all these pesky friends and family expecting gifts. Maybe I should buy them all PS3 games ...
I'm really looking forward to HOME I must say
This is like mario 2d but 100 times better
how long until someone customizes Sack Boy to look like Mario?
wow, this game will have a lot of funs, looks wonderful.
Am I the only one who thinks that if I could choose between Home and this for a lobby in a game, I'd choose Sackboys with all of their customizations and emotions? I hope there are LBP chat rooms and the likes where it acts as Home.
Brilliant once again. Love what was shown. And they totally should have holiday theme packs for Christmas, Halloween, Easter, St. Patricks days... Imagine the Wii folk, the pipes, clover, red hair... LOL
Sackboy ?? LOL.. if it is that a funny a$$ name.
Don't think for a second that Creative head hunters won't be watching
this stuff with Great interest. ...........Waking someone out of a dead sleep and offering them a Job.
Can NOT wait ...............MUST have now ...........
this game is gonna be the most innovative game of 2008 gaurunteed.
Day one purchase for sure. Can't wait to start creating!
That's definitely Toy story type graphics. But seriously, what the hell is this game about?
Is LBP still set for a January '08 release? This game if any will be my reason to get a PS3. Can't wait.
But then again from the last interview it could be Summer 2008. But I'm going with what my friend said. Feb. 2008 for Closed beta. March 2008 for Full release.
Little Big Planet is currently schedule for an April 2008 release.
Gamestop has the game listed as an exact release for April 12, 2008. Although there is rumors that there is supposed to be a beta dropping sometime in the beginning of 2008. If that is true then I would probably -guess- that the beta (if there is one) will show up around February or March.
Damn I can't for next year, just look at all the great game we're getting. I really want to play LBP but I don't think I'm going to create levels but I know I'll download a ton of them. This game is like MARIO on crack because your never going to get tired of playing it since you can download other peoples levels for free. What game you know that lets you do that besides UT3 on the PS3? I'm telling you it's going to be a great year for PS3 owners next year.
GAME ON MY PS3 FRIEND'S!!! GAME ON!!!
ACTUALLY NINTENDO FANS WOULD HATE IT TO BECAUSE AFTER ALL THESE YEARS SONY HAS NEVER HAD A GAME WITH THE STANDARDS OF MARIO AND NOW LITTLE BIG PLANET IS SONYS MARIO
Some people really must want war at any cost...
First of all, Sony has had plenty of games that fit right along side of mario. Maybe not the exact same genre, though I think probably even there. Any of the Team ICO games count, as do many others. Mario's a great game, but there have been plenty of great games on the playstation as well.
Second, only fanboys are mad when a great game is on another console. Real gamers (those not gaining their identity from console wars) are excited about great games regardless. There are several Nintendo fans in this thread that are very interested indeed.
sony's Mario back in the day, and i loved crash it was great. Mario was better imo. Super Mario 3 FTW!!!
a recreation of the "CLASSIC" Pitfall. I'v been wanting to do this since the first time i saw it. I got lots of ideas but thats numero uno for mi. I will buy this day one, hour one.
cannot wait for this game
already got ideas running through my head
i'm so freggin excited for this game that my head is about to explode. i'm also goning to make some level remakes and just like the boat was made in the video i'm going to make giant movable robots and fight them with other robots like the power rangers.
what can we call the little people that you play, create and share with?
reply to this comment.
Already named, they are called sackboys.
its little big planet man
and i think theyre called sackboys or something like that
The creativity that is possible with this game is awe inspiring. I really can't wait to see what others come up with and how it compares to mine and inspires me to do more and outrageous things in games. This will also give some game developers an idea of what we actually want to see in a game.
This won't have dropped for long before I pick it up.
i want badly!!
and try to think of what to creat next. Or is it just me?
This is not meant to be taken as a stupid comment, but seriously. Can someone summarize this game up to me in a few sentences. I have heard so much about it, but never gave it much of a chance by researching it.
But, does that trailer honestly look fun to you guys?
The reason why this trailer is amazing is the fact that what you are looking at is user created. You use the building blocks (in-game items) to build an environment...a level if you wish. Accurate physics are then used to make those items move in a realistic way. So what you're seeing is all created by you, the user.
There will be some pre-built levels / environments, but users will create their own levels and upload them. These can then be played by anyone and rated. You control the characters to move through the levels. Some might have a time limit on them. Some might have a certain number of items you have to collect. That's part of the greatness...we will basically be creating the game experience. This is going to be a wonderful outlet for people's creativity.
Ever played "The Incredible Machine" on PC? Take that and imagine something on a much grander and more open scale.
Does this level look like fun? Maybe not, as there doesn't seem all that much to do on this one. But someone sat down and CREATED all of what you see, using the in-game building blocks and physics.
Like someone said, the possibilities are endless once you get going.
Please dont try to explain someone whats the point of this game. You like it or you dont like it. How can I explain to someone the smile this game brings up on my face every time I see it. This is my dream game.
everything else I've seen on this game has it looking amazing and interesting, it may actually be something that makes me want a ps3.
but this trailer has 2 crappy looking mii's floating on the same pirate ship for 3 mins. poor advertising IMO.
I would have at least shown some different levels, different characters, etc...
but whatever, it's still gonna be a great game, just hopefully they do a better job promoting it in the future.
This is the first time I've seen this game. Is it for pre school children to 13 year old children? My youngest daughter likes the look of it and shes 12.
Guys I'm not trying to knock it as it looks great.
It's an engineering game that can be played by anyone it looks cute and stuff but that's at least to me is what makes it look cool. I think if kids played this game it would be really beneficial to them as they can expand their thinking and create their own levels. It's much better than putting in a FPS and telling them to shoot everyone they see. I plan on using this game to teach my nephew as a learning aide. I wish I had this game when I was a kid and learning stuff. All I had was Street Fighter and Streets of Rage. So if you have a mechanical mind this game would be really awesome to you and your kids.
