Games like this make me wish I had a PS3.

@FoxMulder: haha me too oh well though i dont mind watching it again

Posted by FoxMulder

grrrr....I totally watched this before the quest

Posted by Metallus

Ugh, this game really makes me want a PlayStation 3, but I have no room in my heart for two current-gen consoles.

Wow! almost one hour long. SWEEET!!

That Dead Space level is ridiculous. How long does a level that intricate take to create?

I need to clean up my desk. So much drool from watching this quick look. I am purchasing this TONIGHT!

It is a very fun game to play : )

Holy shit! Crazy community stuff. Now that I have a PS3, I'm probably going to buy this. And oh man, the Grappling Hook + Music was awesome.

Posted by dcgc

I wish i had a PS3 for inovative and user-content creative games, like this one.

@lasafrog:  you certainly have a valid point. *most* of the media molecule levels aren't so great, and that goes double for the community levels. but the level creator/toy box is where the real heart of the game is. that, and some of the astounding ingenuity of some of the community creators who have made stunning, awe-inspiring stuff. there is a TON of chaff mixed in with the wheat, you're right. so it's not so puzzling, this game's just not your cup of tea,  no big deal. as a level creator, i can't get enough of it.  i'd never recommend this game to someone who wasn't into building/creating stuff with that amazing toybox. but you're also right on another point, it *is* a waste of time.   all games are. it's not like gamers are out there saving the world, we're just having fun.   ...and wasting time.

I get where you are coming from about the nostalgia.   Some people need to let it go.
 
With that said, this game is meant for this type of thing and that is why some of this stuff is disturbingly impressive.  Being able to take a platformer with custom levels and turn it into a fully functioanl dual joystick shooter is really awesome. 
 
I'm not one for homebrew stuff either, but this stuff is impressive.

That Blast Radius level sold me on this. My lanta that was awesome.

I like how Jeff said; "people made Gradius in the first one, but you could see the strings in a lovable way." And I think that is exactly it, people were always down on LBP that this game was more floaty than Mario, or the Resident Evil level someone made wasn't scary... Or that Gradius didn;t play exactly like Gradius. But it wasn't supposed to be. 
 
This game was a toy box, and was even made to look like one. It wasn't the feature high budget film version, it wasn't even the Broadway play version, it was the fun make believe street performer "Punch and Judy" version. You were supposed to get the theme/feel of the game, but it wasn't going to replicate the game (if you wanted that just go buy the actual game). It was playing with action figures. It was the charm ,the strings, the "how did they do that?". 
 
i think this game will more so address that crowd that didn't quite "get it" in the first game and really wow them even more; but I always liked even the awkward not quite right versions in the first one. It was never about being the $80 Shaun White ski hat your mom could buy you; it was seeing what the $80 hat would look like if you Grandma went to the craft store and made it herself with yarn. Thats what I loved about it and still do :) Having a couple of awesome games made on top of that is just icing on the cake!

LBP 1 was the only reason I bought a PS3 in the first place. Lots of good games come out since then, but this thing really reminds me why I now favor the PS3 over my beloved 360. PS3 exclusive games are fricken great at times.

this game is super dope!

take the stick out of your ass and then you'll see

I don't know what's better in the Titanic one: the inventive engrish, or Vampire Helena Bonham Carter.

I thought I was the only person who did the 'whoosh' thing! Do you wave your hand over your head when you use it in conversation? :)

There are some gravity modifiers that help sort of resolve that issue. I don't know how effective it could be, but I hear increased gravity makes things more responsive.

I think you have to watch the LBP2 Beta QL.  
 
This one.
Posted by Steamboat

So is this worth buying a PS3 and a HD tv for?

k so this is the 3rd time ive watched this QL and still no quest completion. Anyone else have this problem?

LBP2 looks great! I loved the first one and can not wait to get this.

" So they still didn't improve the core mechanics then.... sorry.. 30,0000 levels aren't worth anything if they all play like crap! "

Levels made in LBP2 (of which I'm sure there will be much more than 3 million of) can have gravity modifiers, and while it doesn't let you change directions mid-jump like Mario, it makes it feel a lot more responsive as you aren't floating in mid-air for 2 seconds at the apex of your jump.
 
I don't really like the standard physics either (though I slogged through LBP1 for trophies), but 200% gravity feels so much better.

Didn't really get into the first one, but bought this game anyways since sometimes its nice to have a stress free fun game to play that isn't a shooter every now and then.

Edited by Lokno

Here's a tip about the new game. See those little pink trees in the upper-left corner of some of the level patches in Jeff's queue? That icon means that the the level was last published in LBP1. There were something like 3 million LBP1 levels, so those are still the majority. 

Posted by ptys

I literally can't believe what I'm seeing! Think I'm going to buy this just to support the developer as I don't really have the time to play alot of it.

Posted by The_Moose

Graphics are amazing!

Posted by SBYM

So this seems kind of rad.

Posted by kalmis

Can't really decide if I want this or not. Watched the whole QL and while the different levels looks like fun the singleplayer campaign didn't look too exciting. Probably end up getting bored fast with this.
