Well I figured this needed it's own topic, hopefully anyone who fell out of touch with LBP and stopped reading the topic will see this and shit bricks. With a rumoured release of "Winter 2010", we'll hopefully need this for all the new information...

honestly I got LBP just to play levels, and to have a game that I could play with my gf. I don't really care enough to make my own levels and whatnot. When LBP2 drops in price after months/years I will get it then, and by that time there will be sufficient enough user created levels for me to enjoy.
DuPz0r
New trailer.

I watched that last night when I was working ... threw it up on the 42inch hd tv we were using ... can't wait to have LBP2 on a 42inch tv. yeah bebbeh.

I've been pretty active on LBP over a long period of time. But if they mean recently, then i guess I'm out of luck. I haven't played it in about 4 months...

Good luck getting those codes guys.


*Puts LBP on quickly*
bOnEs
too late, dup... they've already determined who's getting in...

http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-news/7729.html

...so playing for 20 hours straight right now wouldn't make a difference... you are an active member though, with a platinum so, you might be one of the lucky ones... i don't know when they are suppose to be sending those out but, the week is almost over now...

Man, the game looks beautiful. I pre-ordered my copy from GAME today.

i hate to be the bearer of bad news but to me, it's not all that bad...

http://www.vg247.com/2010/09/23/littlebigp...o-january-2011/

i was never going to get to this until next year anyways so, delaying it until january gives me the chance to fully experience fallout new vegas for a few months before i dip into the 2nd world of media molecule... i am looking forward to this and now i can experience it at the same time as everyone else biggrin.gif... i won't be a late adopter like i was with the first one...
Kamahl
it doesnt bother me either, there are more games i want (like Gran Turismo 5, thats gonna keep me busy for months(years) and more stuff) and if i really feel like playing something like it, well... i got LBP 1

Me and the wife got it with the intention of playing something 'together' but we've spent more time talking about it than actually playing it. I've put it beside the PS3 now as a reminder to play it.
bOnEs
it's more geared towards creative people than younger people... if your not finding fun in the level creator then, this game isn't for you because, the main story for the game is almost non-existent... and the levels are meant to showcase the ideas that are possible in the level creator... if you bought this for the story, sorry... you should of bought this for the creativity it gives you...

same here, I got it so me and my gf could play together, and we did but after a few weeks of playing randomly we don't anymore. but yeah I get that this game is mostly about creating, but it's also fun seeing creations too.

Dude messing with physics...


One of the best levels of the moment.

LittleBigPlanet 2 goes Gold!

Release dates are as follows:

North America - January 18
Continental Europe - January 19
Australia and New Zealand - January 20
UK and Ireland - January 21

So hopefully peeps have money left this close to Christmas. My birthday is the 25th, so i know what I'll be asking the misses for!
ENVi3
There is a demo posted (in the US PS Store, at least). I haven't checked it out yet but it's downloaded and I'll get to it later.
DuPz0r
Cool. If it's out on the EU PS-store I'll get it now!
ENVi3
The demo has 3 levels you can play. The first one is obviously there to show off the jump pads and the grappling hook. The second one is there to show off the new mechs you can possibly make. The third one I guess shows off that you can shoot rockets?
I'm not quite sure what to make of it. The game looks better, and I'm sure there's different features and such, but it still feels like LBP. I think this game will most likely appeal to creators more than people that are just players.
I have an invite to the beta, but they require you to download some just patch ... which I never got around to, so I can't make any reviews based off that.
bOnEs
fuck, i need to remind myself that there's a demo in the store right now!! i'll try to download this tomorrow... and guess what?! i won a $50 meijer gift card at my company christmas luncheon today... it's totally going towards this game biggrin.gif...
DuPz0r
After playing the three story level a few times i decided that this game is going to be truly better than the previous. Looking at the mechanics on each level, it is clear that LBP2 has a lot more to offer in terms of level creation. I'm really interested in what levels they've created throughout the story mode, as much the creation.

The first level felt like a traditional LBP level with the new twist, that being the grapple hook.

I enjoyed that second level a lot. The pets brought a whole new dimension to the playing style, which was great.

The last level felt like one of many multiplayer levels created online - on the first one. But the timer was a nice new touch.
DuPz0r
Anyone bought this yet? I should have it in the next few days.
bOnEs
i'll purchase this in a couple weeks... i am on a renting binge right now until my 1/2 off rentals wears off in two weeks... so, i am playing assassin's creed brotherhood right now... but, i look forward to playing this...
DuPz0r
I was lucky enough to get this game as a birthday present from a friend. So I've been blasting it up the last couple of days.
The story levels are very fresh and much more innovative that that seen in the first one. Lots of new game mechanics and character pick-ups to play with biggrin.gif
DuPz0r
Here is a couple of decent levels on LBP2, just to show you how much more you can do compared to the first instalment.
These are in-game playable levels.





There is also a lot of diversity in the story levels too. A couple of innovate top down section.
ENVi3
That's pretty crazy. In theory, just buying LBP2 basically means you have an almost unlimited amount of different games you can play. I don't think I want to get this just yet, but I will definitely get this game later on (probably when it drop in price, lol).
DuPz0r
I've been playing the story levels with misses the last couple of days. Trying to ace them. I love the fact that they have added stickers and bonus bubbles to the challenge levels now too. Depending on how well you do, you get less or more unlockables.

When i get some free time i might start a new level design. I have a couple of ideas. Now you can link levels at the end instead of having a scoreboard/finish, so you can seamlessly create a whole game if you wanted to!
Massacre
With all the new shit they've put in, I wonder if it would be possible to make a small GTA knockoff.
bOnEs
i am already planning on making a GTA-like game whenever i get this... but i am sure there's already probably about a dozen decent ones created already... a top-down driver, similar to their first entry in the series... i got a few other ideas that i would love to make as well... but i have to get the game first... someday really soon...
Kamahl
i just came back from europe yesterday and bought this today... i still havent had time to play it but i really want to, as soon as i finish all the stuff i have to do ill play it

i like the fact that theres a lot of new stuff and not just more levels to play

I'm glad of that too. To be honest the story felt shorter than the first one. But the amount of new content and being able to play almost infinite levels online makes up for that.
bOnEs
bought this today... gonna be playing it in a few hours biggrin.gif... i downloaded the demo but never played it... but i know i'll have a blast with this one anyways... it'll tide me over until LA noire hits the shelves... maybe i should make an LA noire level laugh.gif...

That's a good idea. Might take a lot of work to make realistic facial animations ^^)
bOnEs
ehh, i'll just scratch that idea an make it a crime thriller or something... i dunno... but, i did beat this game last night... either there are less levels or i am just that much better at it than i was with the first game... i like the dramatic story though, great camera work an level designs... i collected roughly 70% of the prize bubbles in my first go at it...

so tonight, i might go through the tutorials and experiment with the new brains, robots and that top-down view.... i got a couple level ideas up my sleeve at the moment biggrin.gif... i'd like to see what i can do with the AI first though...

Yeah, it's shorter. i think there was at least 10 less levels than the first game. But i like the fact they have added many more challenge levels which you can play with friends and still unlock prize bubbles from them. When i get some free time we should all get together and make a collaborative level.
bOnEs
who's all that have this?? also, give me some time to re-acquaint myself with the creator, and all the new tools at my disposal... i've only gotten through 15 tutorials... i can't wait to learn about the sackbots and the top-down camera... i've got a long ways to go before i am ready to contribute biggrin.gif... i wanna publish my own level first...

have you published anything yet, dupz?
