FIX THE DAMN LOADING! I had to get that off my chest first. I mean instead of getting better in this area we are steadily getting worse, especially on the PlayStation 3.

Something is definitely wrong with this and I’m afraid won’t be addressed. Please no responses about next-gen this, awesomeness of ps3 that.

Apparently the boys and girls over at Media Molecule have been busy. In a nut shell, take everything you know about a great title, and add another N variable at the end of it. Don’t misunderstand, Little Big Planet (LBP) itself is an amazing game; with over 2 million games created by users it is a force to be reckoned with.
