Excerpt: LittleBIGPlanet on the Playstation 3 is a game I purchased many months ago. I have finally gotten around to playing, and reviewing it. I can see why the majority of the industry has embraced this game. The level of creativity and interactivity is extremely high in LittleBIGPlanet. This goes from changing your character to the gaming environment. Unfortunately I did run across an issue or two with this PS3 game.
Summary: This compelling, imaginative adventure is the best LittleBigPlanet yet and breaks new ground in a hybrid space of touch-and-button-based gaming that is only possible on PlayStation Vita.
Pros: Exceptional platforming and level design, augmented by clever new mechanics, An empowering suite of creation tools that take full advantage of PS Vita's unique features, Bridges the gap between console-quality gaming and mobile accessibility
Cons: The rare inconsistency with touch response, No support for user-made levels from previous installments

Conclusion: So there you have it, my fashionably late review of Little Big Planet. If you have a Playstation 3 I would snag it. If you don’t, I am not sure whether I would recommend you buy a system just for this game. While Little Big Planet doesn’t re-invent the wheel in any way, it does make the wheel a bit spiffier. I know Media Molecule is already busy developing LBP 2 and I am not sure what I think about this.
Excerpt: It's been a long time since I've played a Castlevania game. A combination of not having the required system or simply a lack of interest. Lords Of Shadow changed all that. Instead of a sequel this was to be a re-imagining of the entire series, starting back at its roots. A reboot that would shed a different light on how the Belmont bloodline began, and how the epic struggle between slayer and vampire began.
Excerpt: Lords of Shadow is not the 3D Castlevania that fans of Symphony of the Night have been waiting for. What it is, is a grand adventure that evokes the essence and mood of the early titles found on the NES and SNES. Gabriel Belmont, a lone warrior of the Brotherhood of Light, is out to investigate the tragic murder of his wife Marie. Her soul and those of many others slain by the dark creatures that have risen up have become trapped in a state of limbo.
