Our Weekend in Gaming

Many of us are still recovering from New Years.  That means it's a perfect weekend to do nothing but game.  In fact the staff will be having their semi-bi-monthly staff co-op night tomorrow.

IP Owners Tell LittleBigPlanet Devs "Please Whitelist Us"

LittleBigPlanet was one of the most highly hyped titles for the PS3 in 2008.  The appeal of adorable little sackboys, co-op play, and robust creation tools should have made for a smash hit.  Instead, the title was plagued by mishaps, like the music controversy, excessive lag in online play, and unclear guidelines for moderation of user generated content.  It's still a fine game, but it's star certainly isn't shining as bright as Sony and MediaMolecule had hoped.

Lord of the Rings: Conquest Demo Now Available

Ever since our in-depth preview that included some hands-on time by Mike, our hopes have been high for Lord of the Rings: Conquest. Even though Pandemic apparently removed two players from the four-player co-op campaign, Pandemic's last two battlefield-style outings -- Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefront II) -- allowed enough AI on the playing field at one time that players could band together and play multiplayer matches as co-op partners. Conquest looks like it will be no different: the Live page for the game indicates that up to four players can play splitscreen.
