'it's not the destination,
but the journey that counts...'

i've just played through about half of journey and it's a gorgeous game.
reminds me lot ofico. although in this game there are no baddies.
no, this is far more zen.
no instructions,
no massive backstory fmv,
you are just plonked in the desert
without a word
and you have to figure it out for yourself.
now, i don't want to say too much
about the gameplay,
because a lot of the fun of the game
is discovering how just cool it is.
safe to say
it is very cool.

what really enthused me about journey
was the multiplayer
which is lovely in it's simplicity.
there is only one mode..:
you are paired with some random person
who is at the same stage as you are
and you solve the level together
voicelessly swapping tricks and tips.

'if you want go fast, go alone
if you want to go far,
go together'

it's a beautiful thing.

little big planet

well, little big planet is an just adorable fairy godmother of all platformers.
the vocal stylings of stephen fry humourously show you the ropes and playing on a PSP the game mechanic seems pretty solid.
and then you get to a level called gift of the grab and the the best popsong you'll hear for a long time glistens and glitters in your ears in fact the music is excellent and diverse throughout.
the customisation of this game is deep
as you play through the levels
you gain building blocks and gadgets
with which you can contruct,
upload and share
your own levels.
and theres a hell of a lot of levels out there,
people have got extremely creative with it
leading to endless replayability
which is always a good thing in a game.
highly recommended.
5 stars.
