Video Game Minisode :: Little Big Planet 2, Shatter, and Alpha Squad
Just what do you call a game that’s a game but also a game that makes other games? We might not know how to categorize it, but Little Big Planet 2 is exactly that… what ever that is. The first game started a fire with its handy-crafted community game experience, and the second might start a REVOLUTION in what a video game can be. Nerdy Show’s VG crew, Brandon and Jonna, accompanied by Cap, Jon, and Kristin discuss the Little Big Planet 2 experience: what’s new, what’s cool, and why it could change everything.
Next up we spotlight two indie download games, one for PS3 and one for X-Box: Arkanoid-based shooter sensation, Shatter, and post apocalyptic RPG-shoot ’em up hybrid, Alpha Squad. The latter you may remember from our Nerdy Show episode “Metroid Babies” as being the heavy metal-injected game being scored by Metroid Metal‘s Stemage. Well, we’ve got Stemage back on the show! Now that the game’s out he’s far more loose-lipped. Brutal secrets be told! All that plus recent video game news including a NEW-new Kirby game for the Wii, and Sony’s portable trump card.
