So I managed to get a LittleBigPlanet Beta key via the most recent giveaway on the Playstation Blog and lemme tell you this game is awesome. The tutorial is EXCELLENT if a little slow paced at times. But it does it's job in scaling up your knowledge about the gameplay ideas and options.


Once you dig into the level creator things get really crazy. Every option has a tutorial you can view or not which details everything you need to know to create levels. The amount of options are almost staggering. One thing I would love to see is a way to export your part lists to a document you could print on another system, maybe a webpage or an html file or something.

I could easily picture myself leaning over my desk and designing levels in the same way I design networks, look at the parts, fit them together and make a proper design. As it stands I will probably build a spreadsheet with all the parts I have and work from that (no joke).

I am really hoping we end up seeing a LBP database (similar to WOW's Thotbot and others) that allows you to add your list of parts so you can track the standard ones. Created objects are not as easy, but you could track those on your own.

Anyway, I am hoping to have some levels up in the next week, check for PSN id Jer1chO, hopefully there will be something for you to enjoy!
