E3: LittleBigPlanet impresses on PlayStation Vita

At least for the time being -- which, admittedly hasn't been very long -- the emphasis on the PlayStation Vita's software library seems to heavily favor games that were successful, beefy favorites on PlayStation 3. Y'know --...

E3: LittleBigPlanet 2 gets better Move support

When LittleBigPlanet 2 shipped, it included some token support for PlayStation Move in the form of Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves. While cute, the self-contained levels didn't leverage full support of the peripheral. That's chan...

LittleBigPlanet gets a much-needed wiki

LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule is trying to get the word out that there's now a wiki for the creatively demanding platformer series. Whatever makes building Zelda dungeons easier is fine by me. The wiki will be run ...

Games announced for the NGP include Uncharted, Killzone

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?

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.
