Recommended Posts

2/3/4 player-coop sealed the deal for me. Looks like a lot of fun.

Go solo in an epic race against time stuffed with danger and peril – or create teams of two to four adventurers for fun-packed party play as you work together to overcome nefarious tasks however you can imagine.

New gameplay and a look at special editions:

The Jin Sakai one looks hilarious. Game looks super fun!

Trailer did actually make me want to play it. Looks like it could be great in multiplayer as well, especially over Christmas so might have to grab another Dualsense along the way if I pick it up.

Any word on digital upgrade if you pick up the PS4 version? Its up for pre-order on the PS Store for £59.99, but with that price I imagine that the PS5 version a bit higher so if they're offering a free upgrade, I'll happily take it as a game for myself and the missus to play over Christmas.

Free upgrade. The game is also £59.99 on PS5.

This looks pretty good, presumably because it seems to be inspired by 3D World. The physics engine also looks pretty decent, which has always been my biggest issue with the regular LBP games.

Still no reviews of this?

Another smaller, more creative title being sent out to die like Tearaway and Concrete Genie?

Seems to be doing solid on Metacritic for now, 78 critic score and 90 user score. No big or even medium outlets from what I can see, but seems to be pretty well received. 

I do think Sony got things the wrong way around when it came to reviews and things like that, I think it would have made much more sense to give reviewers Demon's Souls a week earlier than they did, in addition to Miles Morales and the other games. What we've seen are reviews for Astro's Playroom, Miles, and Bugsnax come out, and then major outlets (perhaps rightly, from a business perspective) turning immediately then to Demon's Souls, as they only had a couple of days to review a 30+ hour RPG. Still think that was an odd choice.

This is local co-op. If you look at the psn listing, it states that online co-op expected late this year (even though 2020 is next to over) or early next year. Will buy when that's available.

If this had Nintendo written on the box it'd be getting rave reviews. The level design isn't quite up to the big N's standard (so far at least), but the presentation is absolutely sublime. Such a joy to play, I'm really loving it. Tons of fun going through and 100%-ing each level. It seems heavily inspired by Mario 3D World, which is fine by me!

I'm halfway through the first world and just played the next gen equivalent of Castle Rock from Rayman Legends. Absolutely incredible.

Spoiler

There is definitely an audience on Playstation for Sackboy, he was the mascot for a brief period during the PS3 days. But like Ronnie says, the majority of his audience is likely on kid friendly Nintendo platforms. It would be an interesting experiment to see how this game would perform if it was on the Switch, small kiddies would see Sackboy on that box and fall in love with the cute plucky little stitched guy.

If I eventually get a PS5, this game would be one of the first I would get, especially because my younger brother loves Sackboy but never really goes with Sony (Still has his PS3 set up) and when we both lived at home he bought all the Little Big Planet games available for the PS3.

Heard nothing but good things about this one, and seems the same here. Once I’ve made my way through some of my launch backlog I think this will be on my list of games to pick up.

If anyone is playing this at the moment and fancies grinding some multiplayer trophies I could use some help :D
