WHAT A GAME. I haven't been this excited about the possibilities of entering a new game world since The Sims! In the game, you're a little sack-boy that travels through different worlds, collecting stickers, new outfits, and other objects. You can customize your "word" and sack boy to your heart's content. The game boasts a tremendous online community, as users have created really fantastical "worlds" to play in and have posted them online for all to play. I urge those with PS3's to check it out.

I had fun playing it 2 weekends ago, but didn't get to see any online content. It is however, a fantastic multi-player game. ! This is the game I was waiting for to buy a PS3, and now I am too poor to afford one... so it

sure will, this sounds like PS3's big game of the year.

I spent nine or more hours playing it last night. >_<

The only downside is that most of the user-created levels so far are very short or very simple. So once you've finished the game and aced all the may be searching for things to do. On the plus side, this means I can put away LBP for a few weeks to play Fallout 3 and then maybe come back to some awesomeness (assuming I don't create a level myself).

Well, I only did most of the tutorials. Creating a level would just take too much time. However, after acing all levels and getting 100% (so much more time consuming than I'd have thought), I find myself with little to do. I've no interest in randomly choosing user-created content, since a good portion of it isn't worth the time to load it. There's also no reliable search feature (such as by rating). Maybe in a few weeks, or months, user-generated content will be better and easier to find (the good stuff, I mean).

In the meantime..rather than pick up Fallout 3 (it's still wrapped in plastic), I've started playing Mirror's Edge. I must say, I'm largely impressed. Sometimes the graphics (such as flowers or Faith's occasionally mannish and ugly hands) are really bad, but it's mostly good. I enjoy the artistic style a lot, and especially appreciate the lack of dark and shadowy bits. However, the game is absolutely insane in terms of gameplay. You're often being chased and shot at...if you slow down, you get hurt and eventually die. This means you don't take the time to judge jumps, or look around too long for the "right" ledge (a la Tomb Raider). It's extremely fast-paced action. Enough that I had to pause it periodically so I didn't throw up (I'm afraid of heights...even in video games). The controls are pretty cool. I've always hated the stiff jumping of FPS games. It's been a peeve of mine for years and largely why I'm not a huge FPS fan. I like some realism to the game. Faith provides plenty (though there are moments of stiff gameplay - such a jumping in an awkward spot where Faith refuses to climb over something small or jump forward). But largely the vaults, slides, wall-running, etc are really fun and extremely smooth. After a while, you start trusting the controls and the game and that's when it takes off. You end up "going with your gut" when being chased, when jumping, etc. It's definitely a different kind of experience. Reminds me a little of Assassin's Creed, but with heavier emphasis on user-controlled action and jumps (little emphasis on combat).
