LittleBigPlanet Vita review: the world on a string

LittleBigPlanet Vita confounds your creativity before indulging it. The tools have grown to such a state of excess that figuring out what you want to build - rather than what you can build - stymies decision making. "The only limit is your imagination," the game's marketing materials brag. It's true, which is a tough pill to swallow when you're suffering from game-designer's-block. That freedom is only paralytic for so long, though. Once you clear the hurdle of conceptualization, LittleBigPlanet Vita's Create mode is absorbing.

LittleBigPlanet series reaches 8 million user-created levels

The LittleBigPlanet community has now created more than 8 million levels across all the games in the series, said franchise creator developer Media Molecule yesterday. The milestone comes less than one year after the total number of levels reached 7 million, which happened last August, although the pace of growth has slowed — the community went from 6 million to 7 million levels between January and August 2012, a span of less than eight months.
