Who else has been or still is a fan of this series? Smile

I remember not having much interest in it when the first game was released, but gradually got hooked when I picked it up later as I started to find the decent content creators. LBP2 is the series high point followed closely by Vita, and ignoring LBPKarting, LBP3 is the weakest entry. The story mode was lacking and the levels are forgettable. At least it has the community side to keep it up, but I just couldn't connect with LBP3 like I do with LBP2.

I don't think it helped LBP3 when Sony opted to announce it with such little fanfare at E3 and introduced it with people who didn't play the game very well. Compared to LBP2 the reveal for LBP3 was abysmal and so was the marketing for it.

Whichever one I played with you and Yuri was the best game for in the series. XD Did we play on both LBP and LBP2?

Anyway, those were the only games two I got from the series. Was quite late getting LBP, as I got the anniversary or whatever version it was for £20 I think? Good concept of a game, and Stephen Fry was brilliant as the narrator/guide. When Sackboy reacted to stuff he said or what he had to do was great too. Wish I made the level I wanted to try and do, it was going to be a race between three players, using something at the start or part way through. Did play some good customised levels. The only one I can remember though was inside a dark house/area, and Moony, Yuri and I played through, was kind of like a story. Oh, I also remember hide and seek and "it" I think? XD

The only thing I liked about LBP3 despite not playing it, were the new forms you could play as that did something specific. Although did that end up taking away from Sackboy? As in less reason to play as that form. Since we could use other stuff to get him(/her) around levels from the past two games.

I recall we played on LBP1 and the level you're thinking of may be the one with the chainsaw dude who chases you. There was a Bioshock level we played too, which I joined late on and caused the water to break. XD

The alternate characters in LBP3 didn't really impact the amount you play as Sackboy because the character is determined by the level, not the player, except in home worlds. So unless the creator sets the character to be someone else you're always given Sackboy.

Apart from Toggle, the abilities of Oddsock and Swoop were things Sackboy already did, such as wall jumping, flying and gliding (albeit the last two require power ups).

The only thing I remember about this games from the days of old™, was my friend from school bringing his copy of the first one home for us to try on a VERY early PSX emulator. It blew my mind... all ten minutes it ran properly on my humble Pentium II.

I haven't played any of them since.
When leaves have fallen.
And skies turned to grey.
The night keeps on closing in on the day.
A nightingale sings his song of farewell.
You better hide from her freezing hell. ~ Ice Queen, Within Temptation.

*Facepalms* I went to Wikipedia to confirm that wasn't the game I was talking about.

It must have been something similiar. My bad...

Sackboy: A Big Adventure Announced
LittleBigPlanet is still alive and well as a new game has been announced by Sumo Digital, and this time Sackboy is in a full 3D adventure!




Announcement of the fucking day for me! I started getting the feeling it was LittleBigPlanet as it panned over the tiger at the start, and then when I saw the zipper I fucking screamed! It makes me so happy to see Sony hasn't abandoned LBP in favour of Dreams or after the lukewarm reception to LBP3. Grin

I wondered if MediaMolicule was responsible for Sackboys Adventures, so I see it was the LBP3 devs & if the game has issues playing with other players as LBP3 did? It's gonna flop. So I'm hoping this game has decent two player co-op.

I think making LBP3 cross gen contributed to a lot of that games problems. Both PS3 and PS4 are vastly different and a lot of development time likely got poured into that. I also don't think Sony would dare give their IP to Sumo again if it looked like they will screw it up again.

Well. I hope your right. I'd love to give Sacboy's Adventure a shot, but IDK if it's a system seller tbh.  Errm

I started Sackboy: A Big Adventure two nights ago and it so far has become my most beloved game this entire year. It has all the charm a LBP game should have, and it so far has redeemed Sumo Digital for me after their handling of LBP3. Crash 4 was going to be my platformer of the year but I think it's going to be this game now.

If you don't want to be spoiled at all about any of the levels in this game, don't watch this, but this level alone made me so unbelievably happy:



If there's an LBP4 with the charm of this game it has such a good chance of being on par to LBP2 or even besting it.

I really want Sackboy: A Big Adventure so badly: I asked for it as a Christmas gift. I'm asking for the PS4 version since the PS5 is getting sniped up by scalpers & the PS5 has had its launch issues too. So even though I have the cash for a PS5, I can wait to get it.

The PS4 version is better to get anyway because it comes with a free upgrade to the PS5 version. If you get the PS5 version it doesn't come with the PS4 version.

The PS4 version runs fine though. Even the load times are good which is nice to see after the awful load times of LBP3.

Can't wait to play more; we're 3 worlds in and it's just been a joy to play each time. My favorite part is the physics of the game aren't LBP "floaty" style and it's super refreshing.

I still think there should be an option after game completion to turn on the old physics. Tongue
