Stuck in the pit stop
Over the years, many developers have tried and failed to dethrone the Mario Kart series. This year, United Front Games has stepped up to the starting line, dishing out its very own blend of cardboard cut-out tracks and knitted karting chaos, all under the name of LittleBigPlanet Karting. However, despite high hopes, the...
And some in the West
If you're a Japanese gamer who loves LittleBigPlanet, then you may want to start tapping down on your d-pad: Sony's shutting down the servers for all three of the main games, as well as LittleBigPlanet Karting, LittleBigPlanet Vita, and LittleBigPlanet Portable. Essentially, the series is over in the East, it would seem. The...
Just add water
While his legacy may not be as strong as Crash Bandicoot or Spyro, the smelly protagonist from PSone classic Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee will still strike a chord with old-school gamers. And in order to celebrate the arrival of upcoming re-release Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty later this year, Sony has prepared a brand n
More content than you could ever want
If, like this flustered author, you don’t have time to play half of the games that you own, then you may want to steer clear of LittleBigPlanet. While we’d recommend all of the entries in the whimsical do-it-yourself franchise, it is possible to have too much of a good thing. And the fact that the series is...
It may not be the most polished racer on the block, but at least you can now grab LittleBigPlanet Karting at a heavily discounted price. Sony has cut the cost of the whimsical karting adventure from £39.99/€49.99 to £19.99/€24.99 on the European PlayStation Store. Even better, PlayStation Plus subscribers can scoop an additional...
Sony’s topsy-turvy handheld adventure Gravity Rush will soar into LittleBigPlanet this week, when a new costume pack launches for the popular first-party series. The outfits – featuring Alias, Unica, Raven, and, of course, Kat – will initially be compatible with LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet Vita, but will be rolled out to Litt
Your guess is as good as ours
We’ve never heard of this week’s best selling game in the UK. Apparently it involves a character named Master Chief – yeah, we thought that was kind of dumb too. Still, it seems like the people of Britain are rather fond of him. Something they’re not so keen on is LittleBigPlanet Karting, which has crashed its...
As the PlayStation 3 gets cheaper, Sony is banking on its mainstream characters to make the console more appealing to casual gamers and kids. One recognisable figure who’s quickly becoming the spear-head for that strategy is Sackboy. The burlap buccaneer has already appeared in two titles this year – LittleBigPlanet Vita and...
Spice of life
There's a great mix of content available as part of this week's European PlayStation Store update. New arrivals include Dyad, ToeJam & Earl, LittleBigPlanet Karting, and PID. They're joined by a couple of must have shooters in the form of Vanquish and The Darkness II. Are you sitting comfortably?
Sackboy's due a rest. The recent LittleBigPlanet Vita represented the burlap buccaneer's fourth full outing on foot, so we reckon he's earned his break behind the wheel. Not that LittleBigPlanet Karting's a lazy Sunday drive – no, this a full-on Grand Prix for folks made of fabric. Don't believe us? Check out the launch trailer below,...
Left, left, left
The scary season is upon us, and Sackboy has decided to celebrate by donning his favourite Freddy Krueger outfit and racing a few laps around Craftworld. LittleBigPlanet Karting's got about as much to do with Hallowe’en as Mr. Kipling's French Fancies – but we appreciate the effort all the same.
Sackboy returns in a completely new adventure where your fast-paced karting will save the Craftworld universe.
