    “This lvl has been moderated!!i dont know why,i needed to change the logo and name.”

    Little Big Planet allows you free rein with your imagination but sometimes creators take inspiration from existing games. Such was the case with this Mario influenced racer. It’s a fun little level, looks beautiful and it’s simple. Just keep R1 down to drive. I’m the sackboy with the cape, my son Adam was the brown fella.

    Ironically, I received an email from Youtube stating the following,

    “Dear donncha2001,

    Your video, I wonder why it was moderated …., may have content that is owned or licensed by Sony Music Entertainment.

    No action is required on your part; however, if you are interested in learning how this affects your video, please visit the Content ID Matches section of your account for more information.

I wonder if everyone who uploads Little Big Planet gameplay videos receives such an email? Duck said he got 4 of them!

    Babysitting Mama 

    Wii owners rejoice! News just in that a new title, “Babysitting Mama” will be released this holiday season.

    The game promises to bring all the joys and challenges of taking care of a newborn baby to your Nintendo Wii. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? For the most realistic experience of course you have to leave your Wii and TV on all night so it can wake you up from your slumber at 1am, 3am and 5am for feeding. I doubt they’ll have that.

    Does this sound fun to anyone? I’m a work-at-home dad; during the day I’m writing and editing stories while parenting our ten-month-old son. On a good day I get to use the bathroom when I need to. On a bad day my eyes glaze over with a thousand-yard stare. I love my kids, but having a baby is a job with no days off, no pause button, and no cheat codes. Turning that experience into a game where the child will never grow up, go to college, and allow you to have a single dinner out with your wife sounds like… fun?

    Mario in Little Big Planet 

    Fire up Little Big Planet and search for Mario. One of the levels is the most amazing homage to the moustached plumber ever. But ssshh, don’t tell Nintendo!

    Nintendo 3DS, a 3D version of the Nintendo DS will be released sometime in the next year. Cool.

    Nintendo Co., Ltd.(Minami-ward of Kyoto-city, President Satoru Iwata) will launch “Nintendo 3DS”(temp) during the fiscal year ending March 2011, on which games can be enjoyed with 3D effects without the need for any special glasses.

    Now all they need to do is solve the awful piracy problems on the DS and publishers might actually support the platform. (via Engadget and @conoro)

    A super secret mockup of the Nintendo 3DS has just been revealed! (via gamovr and Retroremakes)

      I thjink I’ll be passing on all the 3D platforms – Nintendo and Sony at the moment. We had the original DS, then the DSi for my daughter – there’s no way we’re spending out again for the DS Ham Hands or whatever they call it and 3D to me is pretty pointless.

      I think that many of the current DS technologies are under utilised (especially as many titles are ports from other formats) so I can see 3D being the same – how many developers are actively developing 3D games that are more than catching a big red ball (to paraphrase that guy from the video you posted the other day)?

        My only handheld console is the original GBA, and I never even used it that much. When I bought it I drove to work, and now I work from home where I have all my computers. Whenever we go anywhere I drive. Think handhelds are just for the kids?

      The Guardian tech blog has this to say about the possible tech behind the new 3D display. Something called “Parallex Barrier”. It sounds plausible.

      I can’t wait for the Nintendo 3DS to come out. I’ve heard that the 3DS will use a PICA200 graphics card. Isn’t that cool! Its top screen will have a ratio of 16:9 and both screens will have a resolution of 720p! I’m kind of bummed that the bottom screen will be smaller than the DS lite’s bottom screen, though. By the way, do you know if is it true that the Nintendo 3DS will have a multi-touch screen and a GPS?

        I read somewhere that the resolution will be 480×400 or something, but divide that by 2 for the two screens. Still fine for a small device!
