Guinness World Records and the LittleBigPlanet 2 launch

To celebrate the release of Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet 2, Sony held a three-day launch event at the Sony Style Store in New York City last week. The main goal of the LBP extravaganza was to set Guinness World Records fo...

Games announced for the NGP include Uncharted, Killzone photo
Games announced for the NGP include Uncharted, Killzone
by Conrad Zimmerman

Sony showed a lot of both hardware and software at today's PlayStation Meeting 2011. So what games do we know of for the device? Live demonstrations of Uncharted and Hot Shots Golf were performed at the event, as well as Capcom's Lost Planet 2 and a new samurai title from Dynasty Warriors developer Koei. 

The PlayStation Blog has a rundown of other franchises which Sony has shown or talked about at the event. Major properties such as Killzone, LittleBigPlanet and Resistance obviously top the list and Call of Duty appears as well. Pool simulator Hustle Kings is listed, along with a number of new projects such as Little Deviants, Gravity Daze, Broken and Smart As.  

Furthermore, Sony has released a list of third-party developers and publishers. All the major players seem to be on board, though I'm happy to point out that Capybara, PopCap and Grasshopper all seem to be working on projects for the handheld. I can't wait to see what those studios in particular wind up doing with the Next Generation Handheld. Who do you want working on it?

Scary amount of 'Kill Obama' levels in LittleBigPlanet 2

Review: LittleBigPlanet 2 photo
Review: LittleBigPlanet 2
by Jim Sterling

Media Molecule once said that LittleBigPlanet would never get a sequel, that it was something the studio wouldn't ever want to do. Whatever changed between then and now, LittleBigPlanet got the second installment that the more cynical among us always thought was inevitable. 

The trouble with a sequel to a game like LittleBigPlanet is that it's difficult to imagine what more you could do. LittleBigPlanet was more than a game; it was a breathtaking toolset of new ideas and fresh content. Following that up with enough content to justify a sequel was always going to be tough. 

Your mileage may vary as to whether or not you feel Media Molecule got away with it.

Media Molecule launches LittleBigPlanet community site

The bigger issue with user-fueled games like LittleBigPlanet usually isn't the lack of creativity; rather, it's having a system that makes the good content rise to the top and everything else fall to the murky depths. The jus...

Wolfenstein 3D level for LittleBigPlanet 2 is, uh, wow

It's funny how collectively, we always rush to see familiar recreations of beloved properties (Level 1-1, Green Hill Zone, etc.) in user-created content rather than inventive, new ideas. Why play as some no-name character in...
