View Full Version : Hello...what's this?

Hey guys and gals.

Apologies if this has been mentioned before.

I was watching the trailer (again for about the hundredth time) and noticed something peculiar that piqued my interest.

If you cut to about 1:14 to 1:16 theres a bit with a breakeout style minigame.

If you look to the sides there is, what appears to be, gaps in the material with something moving behind.

Anyone know what it is? It sort of looks a bit like gray water mixed with plasma.

You cant quite see the full effect but its the bits on the sides.

Pictures would be nice, and quite helpful m8. :)

(Btw, you can just press "Print Screen" on the keyboard and you'll get a screenshot of what's on the screen atm.)
Hope that helps! :)

I shall post them anyway. :)

It's not just glass reflecting all the lights? Gonna go check the trailer.

Nevermind, doesn't look like glass

It looks like the animated water material. New feature to LBP2 is some animated materials so yeah, there's one in action!

Wow cool. Were gonna get animated materials?

Sounds exciting. :p

I can see it now, an animated sand material. Every once in a while you see footprints appear (And then later disappear) in the sand. Oh! Or maybe a material that looks like grass, and sways in the wind? OR! A metal that has an animated gleam on it? Possibilities!!!!!

WOW your right btw while looking at the vid again to see what you meant. did any one else notice the arcade machine to the right with a moving screen of a road at 1:08? O_O

Yea, that's been noticed for a while (I think). I did however just notice the animated arrows on the road when it shows the top-down racing level. Either a manipulation of lights or awesome new material.

I think it is just a metal material with light bouncing off

It could be an updated Electrified Material appearance added with the MGS Blue VR Metal.

Actually, I may have seen dynamic backrounds!!! Look at the Fluffy High-Tech Area (I think that's what it's called). I think I see some contraptions moving and a furry object swaying around at one point....from 0:55 to 0:58.
