Doug Elfman of LVRJ talks about the three most innovative nonsequels hitting stores this year: Dead Space, LittleBigPlanet, and Mirror's Edge.
Dead Space is not innovative it has a few gimmicks that's about it. The other two games are innovative.
Actually i would say dead space and mirrors edge is innovative and the other isn't. What makes LBP innovative seriously. I have made levels with editors for quake2, half life, Ut, i mean creating your own levels is nothing new. Platforming been there done that and i still love it, but LBP is more of a gimmick platformer. It is a editor first, cutesie second then a platformer third. I mean really you cant say this is good platforming, lets all jump on this skateboard and ride down this hill. Everybody say weeee as we do it, give me a break.
You don't know the definition of innovation then. Little Big Planet is the first of its kind on a console. Have you ever modded first hand on a console? No. Also you get to choose through the mods like Youtube. There's so many community features that are innovative in the game. Don't even get me started on the gameplay. Dead Space is not even a evolution. The only thing is that the Hud is on the back of a character. That's like Unchared where Nathan Drake's shirt gets wet and then it dries over time. That's essentially the gimmick of Dead Space. Screw Dead Space it's overhyped.
I heard Dario Argento does a voice in Dead Space which is pretty cool. Innovative? not sure I never played it but I do give them credit for helping to keep the survival horror genre alive.
Dead Space - No LittleBigPlanet - Yes Mirrors Edge - Yes BUT it may get boring fast for some
innovation personified and you know where to get it
is GAME OF THE FOREVER 10/10 at METACRITIC from all sites incoming!!!!!!!!!!!!
dont get your hopes up like you did with bioshock ps3. You'll just get put down again. LOL
Heh, has anyone played that Sweet Child o' Mine level in LBP? I didn't even know that was possible!
he says LBP is innovative but fails to explain why lol. has he actually seen the game? because the first thing you would mention is the fact that you can actually build the levels he so lovingly describes. he makes it sound like its just a sidescroller
even the beta is fun as hell and it should get better once the full version comes out
Luckily I don't leave for basic training until December. Until then I get to play this years best video games with my homies. :D BUYING: Dead Space Socom Headset Bundle Little Big Planet Resistance 2 Call of Duty: World at War RENTING: Far Cry 2 Fallout 3 Motorstorm: Pacific Rift Tom Clancy's End War Mirrors Edge MK vs DC Some will obviously be played more than others, I do not expect to sleep much :/
Its no secret that LittleBigPlanet is, in fact, the innovative little platformer that could, but Mirror's Edge and Dead Space. Yeah, I get the whole "first-person parkour" thing(it is kinda fresh), but far from ground breaking as a whole. Dead Space, aside from the awesome trailer, isn't ( for me) a whole lot to woot about. Even the plot kinda reminds me of Bioshock or somethin. All in all, I think the whole article is to blame. He wanted to make a "innovative title holiday list" very bad, but fell short in finding titles that are, or just as innovative as LBP. lulz, he could of added Spore at least( even though its out now).
I am with Utalkin2me above. What makes LBP so innovative, people talk about how blah blah innovative it is. But i haven't heard on reason why. Don't say cause you can create levels, cause people have been doing that with editors for years.
