You may have missed it but Sony’s conference at E3 included the PS Vita. Among the games showcased was the delightful Tearaway which we haven’t seen since it was announced at Gamescom last year. Media Molecule folded and glued together a new trailer for E3 where you can see the gorgeous paper craft style and excellent use of the rear touch pad in action. Check it out!
I’m off to make a paper elk.
Two Little Big Planet, Disney Princess Packs are now available from the PSN. These are a definite must buy for any little Princess!! My daughters love ‘em!
It looks like Media Molecule has been hard at work making their next game (possibly franchise?). Revealed today is Tearaway, a game designed specifically for the Vita, using pretty much all of the Vita’s user input functionality.
The game stars iota, who is a messenger and has a message to deliver (to you), and, well, you. Mm says that the message is unique to every player, so who knows what that message reads. Anyway, you set out with iota to help others in the paper world, using a number of special powers, as described below:
Using the god-like powers inherent to someone who can hold an entire world in their giant hands, you can make your presence felt using a wide range of godly powers that take advantage of all the PS Vita’s bells and whistles — some subtle and some epic. You can shake things up or turn them upside down. A gentle breath from you is a gusty storm. You can even poke your fingers into the back of the PS Vita to tear through into the world and help iota complete this very special delivery.
Sackboy is back and this time he’s got wheels! The LittleBigPlanet community are in for a treat. If you’ve not already spotted it on twitter or Facebook, or any other Social Network you’re on then let me make your day!
If you’re a huge LittleBigPlanet fan, or heck even if you like Modnation Racers then you’re gonna jump at the chance of taking part in the LittleBigPlanet Karting Beta that has been announced today.
To take part in the beta all you have to do is sign up via the following link:
Hold on! Before you sign up, there is one teeny weeny little thing – the beta is currently available for Europeans only.
So, if you’re in the US – you’ll just have to hang on tight – a beta may be making it’s way to you soon, although we can’t confirm this is the case just yet.
I know, some of you think that LBP Karting is putting ModNation Racers on the backburner, but honestly, is that really a bad thing? As much creativity as you could put into ModNation Racers, it didn’t have the type of tools that the LittleBigPlanet series of games had. If you watch the E3 trailer for this, you’ll see how open the creation suite is for this karting game as well. If you’re into those types of racing games, I think you’re really in for a treat with this one. If the creativity of the user base in the platforming titles is anything to go by, I expect to see some ridiculous, over the top, and cool, tracks, karts, and weapons created by people. Remember those relentless shark levels in the first and second LBP? Imagine firing one of those things and watching it chase down that sack creature directly ahead of you. Also, preorders receive the Kevin Butler with Executive Golf Cart DLC for free!
As for LBP Vita, the game takes place in the world of Carnivalia. Of course, there will be Vita-specific tools and controls, which is an awesome way to utilize them. Not only that, but the game looks great. Almost like the original LBP. Level design seems inventive as always and, again, the user generated content will result in some top notch levels. Be sure to check the E3 trailer for that as well.
Also, something that is overlooked, but important in its own right, you’ll be able to do some cross platform play on LBP2 with the Vita and PS3 with the Cross Controller DLC. You can design levels on the PS3 and then switch to the Vita to use platform-specific tools. Even play the levels with one player on a Vita and others on the PS3. Check this out for an article describing an excellent example. Sound familiar?
