The Vita is a nifty piece of hardware, but as Sony Computer Entertainment America learned this week, toting it as something that would revolutionize gaming mobility is a little much. Last week, we learned a little bit about Daniel Stahl, the brand new executive producer on STO. One little twist, is that the treasures give you candy! I don’t have room in this scattershot post to go into specific ideas, but for starters imagine a sort of wiki-level, one which no one in particular “owns” and everyone can tweak, with the community voting on the best snapshots from its history. However, despite a large talent pool from which we can cull the best of the best these are still largely a collection of levels made by individual users. One of the big problems of some cash shops (especially a certain cash shop that has gotten a lot of attention recently) is that they sometimes like to charge large sums of money for in-game items. Continuing off of Final Fantasy VII cosplay, there’s no way gamers can forget that one time where Cloud crossdressed and won over Don Corneo’s heart. We are given the option of publishing our levels in an “open” way so others can download and tweak them.
Call it open source level design. Media Molecule is only contributing to this attitude of individualism with their trophies for popularity, lack of online level creation, and hints at career opportunities for top developers. Its metacritic score is 95; Time Magazine considered it one of the top 10 games of year! Just get a yellow shirt, top it with an orange jumper, and fix your hair in short ponytails or braids (or wear a wig). What’s more important to you, the (limited) ability to achieve community fame for a painstakingly crafted level, or having a wide variety of content with the potential to only get better as the community makes adjustments? After this, visit Bloodhoof Village to desecrate the flame there, then ride out of Mulgore, desecrate the Crossroad’s flame, ride east to get Razor Hill’s, then ride toward the extreme northwestern edge of Durotar to get to Orgrimmar’s least-troublesome entrance. Then there are the logistical problems. Of course the current system makes such a possibility impractical, but there are many ways it could be improved. But this begs another question: Why is the games industry one in which players, journalists, and critics only talk about what’s current? But no one does this (I’ve yet to play a single such level) because, as it plainly warns you when you chose the option, others could download your level and republish it as their own.
All Karma and Ninja Skills acquired in the demo can be brought over to the retail game, ensuring that demo play time is put to productive use. Fortunately, you can also find all these in cosplay store. Seriously. I had planned to discuss the Cryptic Store this week anyway, and this fits in nicely, given micro-transactions’ importance to the free-to-play model. I even had a nightmare dream two-nights ago of walking into a store and seeing new copies of LBP selling for $8 (the horror!). However it is particularly relevant to LBP. The glut of high profile, pre-holiday releases buried LBP and many other good titles. If anything a game with as much promised longevity as LBP should, in theory, provide fertile ground for play and discussion for months or years down the line. There had been previous columns in which I complained that the game was focusing much more heavily on Incarnate content compared to other options — i.e., the stuff that I personally found interesting. In groups of four, players will enter the nexus reality, and either Batman or Luthor (depending on your alignment) will inform you that he’s detected a paradox, i.e., something is going on with so-and-so’s origin.
Square Enix is going to be basically everywhere at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, with playable demos in multiple locations, panels, and various other events. Most fans have been before and they follow plenty of other sports, too. Stacking‘s best feature is how it allows fans to complete puzzles in a variety of different ways. Make the best arrangements as required for the game and turn your day exciting. A great concept to make use of for the invites is really a pirate’s map. FREE Shipping.

But a recent experience reminded me of that initial awe. Are you more interested in community levels that re-capture those initial feelings, or ones that convey technical prowess, set goals, and veiled references to other games and media? I brought a player I’d met earlier back to my pod to show her the couple of levels I’d been working on but never finished.
