LittleBigPlanet Cracks PSN In Half, Film At Eleven

Sackboy may look cute and cuddly on the outside, but he's really quite dangerous.  If you're the Playstation Network, that is.  MediaMolecule is already working on a LittleBigPlanet sequel, as just announced, but they might want to take a look at the just released original.  It seems that the online portions of the game have been, well, a bit lackluster, to say the least.  Aeropause has it all wrapped up in a nutshell for you:

Sackboy Interviews the Co-Optimus Staff

 We know that in the world of games journalism that it’s usually the journalist who sits down with someone in the gaming industry to do the interview. But this week, we thought we’d have some fun and let the game industry interview us! Sackboy, of LittleBigPlanet fame, swung by to grill the staff and contributors of Co-Optimus about their first co-op moments, their favorite co-op games, and more. Want to know whose gaming life was changed by playing Contra? Read on! Sackboy: First question – What is your favorite co-op game and why? Loren "AgtFox" Halek: Diablo 2. Probably the most time I've ever spent with co-op in a game back when I wasn't really considering the whole "co-op" concept. Jim "txshurricane" McLaughlin: I’d have to say Rainbow Six Vegas 2. I love the character customization and the Terrorist Hunt mode requires teamwork to win. Marc "DjinniMan" Allie: Rock Band, either version. It is without a doubt the best game ever made that everyone enjoys; even nongamers want to play it. There is no greater feeling of cooperation than 5 starring that tough song, or beating World Tour. The game speaks to my inner band geek in so many ways, it has to be my favorite. Blake "Broodax" Corner: I agree completely, Rock Band. It allows geeks like me to feel like rock stars. Plus, what's "more co-op" than a rock band? [Ed. note: Nothing; unless you’re Fleetwood Mac] Mike "pheriannath" Katsufrakis: Secret of Mana - When the game was released, I thought that Japanese RPGs were the best thing to happen to gaming, and being able to tackle an epic (in both length and scope) story with two of your best friends was, and to a degree, still is unique. Jason “OrigamiPanther” Love: Guardian Heroes. My roommate in college and I used to play that all the time (probably when we should have been studying). Something about the combination of a beat ‘em up style game with RPG elements and all those unlockable characters kept us coming back for more. Nick "bapenguin" Puleo: I'd have to say Crackdown is some of the most fun I've ever had in a co-op game. It may not have been the best game, but in terms of sheer fun, hands down the winner.
