Nice.  That's the price I paid just before Thanksgiving, but it's nice to see it out there again for people.  $15.99 after GCU.

Makes me wish I hadn't had the game sitting here unplayed since release so I could buy it at this price instead.

Thanks to handsomepete's advice, I gave this game a try.  I really enjoyed it.  It reminds me of a cross between Rayman and Littlebigplanet.

Having just beat it yesterday and now attempting to plat it, I agree on both counts. :D

Thanks, OP.  I was curious about this when it was on sale around Christmas, but passed in favor of other deals at the time.  Just received my $15 code from Best Buy for spending $100 on an order a couple of weeks ago, so it seemed like a good time to use the credit.

anything else good on sale to get past the $25 shipping barrier?

I would be shocked if isn't free on ps+ in the next few months. Looks like a great game though, theres a demo if you guys are unsure.

I was somewhat interested in this game but then I heard it was like Little Big Planet which I didn't like enough to justify buying and playing it.  I did like Gunstringer though.  I think a lot of these generic platformers are getting boring to me.  I'm all Mario'd out.

It's only like LBP in terms of how it feels to move and jump--the actual gameplay and overall aesthetic are far more unique and enjoyable and thus highly worthwhile.

I hated those aspects of LBP.  Mostly I hated the brutal level design, especially towards the end of the game.  LBP made me angry and I don't like to play games that make me angry.

I never finished either LBP1 or LBP2. I have enjoyed both games online by playing levels created by others. We still do. The creativity of the gaming community knows no bounds.

I played through and completed the first one.  After that experience I didn't even buy the 2nd one and never will.  Anytime a game is compared to LBP (as a similar experience), I'll never buy that game.

Well its a shame you are so closed minded because youll miss out on A LOT of great games.

 

Just because something might be similar to LBP in some way doesn't mean the games are anything alike. Grand theft auto and saints row are alike and comparable but are worlds apart, battlefield and call of duty are a lot alike but if you play them online youll find 2 different games, new super Mario and LBP are a lot alike and comparable but completely different games, world of warcraft and everquest, fallout 3 and skyrim are comparable, and so on.

LOL! I love this type of comment. People post on websites all the time that folks are "missing out". Hey dude, you're missing out by not eating a pile horse shit. I'm sure someone on Earth enjoys it.

You like something therefore anyone that doesn't like it and doesn't want to play it is "closed minded" and "missing out". Logic FTW!

Its a fucking video game, I didn't like it so I'm not spending my money on any more LBP games (or any games that are like it). It's not like I'm not taking my kids to the park and missing out on something actually important. The perspective in some of these types of comments are way off kilter.

People are entitled to like or dislike whatever they want. If someone doesn't like JRPGs, FPS or platformers it doesn't make them wrong. If anything, Blasterman is better equipped to avoid games he knows he will not enjoy. Plenty of good games come out every year and no one can play them all. So knowing what you like and dislike is pretty important when deciding how to spend your money and time.

Exactly!  I only have so much time and I can't play it all.  It's not even that I don't like the platforming genre, I just don't like those games with brutal levels.  It's why I don't play Roguelike games.

Puppeteer a great beautiful game, love the visual style and the entire experience. Tedious Platinum, so I may not bother but still a worthy title even at $39.99. Looks stunning in 3D too.

PS Plus members can pay $7 for the digital version beginning tomorrow on the PS Store.  Damn, I should try to return my copy to Best Buy...
