Little Big Beta Craze

It seems that, without chaos, there is no order. Without alpha, there is no beta. And without beta, there are some 24,000 fans of Little Big Planet that came a weekend too late and are just about ready to do anything (and I mean anything) to get their hands on an online beta of this game.

It seems that LBP is captivating young and old minds alike. Contrary to the fact that the game has a kid-like, squeeze’em teddy bear look and feel to it, the sheer brilliance of the design and gameplay elements has led to a psychopathic rabid group of followers for the title. The Playstation 3 build and play platformer is one of the breakthrough games this generation, as it not only enables players to construct their own level designs, but also puts you in the majority as you can share those levels, and play them with your friends online at any time.

We usually tend to see characters retain similar design, even in the cartoonish games. Though one may be cel shaded, the other might be anime styled. Following in the footsteps of their own Ragdoll Kung-Fu, the characters are shaped completely differently in the form of a sackboy (quiet, you immature pervs). The SB is remniscent of a scarecrow that has a cute, cuddly teddy bear feel – unless, of course, you use the Kratos costume (which I will be,without a doubt in my mind). Veering off course to be different definately pays off this time, as the fanbase can’t get enough of what they view, nevermind the fact that a lucky beta player has already made a mockery of the xbox 360, and for what it’s worth, it’s quite funny! All of the links to that stuff and more are at the bottom of the page. I hope you enjoy this month, content will be flooding, along with some goodies and secrets.

  1. I was fortunate enough to get in on the LBP Beta, and I have to say, I’m loving every minute of it. Some levels are downright crazy, while others take the platforming genre and turn it into an adventure game. And I really can’t wait to get home to play some more. I’m going crazy. Haha.
