View Full Version : Power Gloves: What can they be used for?

EDIT: You might not be able to pick up Sackboys, so this drawing could be pointless! If you can't... I hope Mm changes that!

I read somewhere that "power gloves" (it's a good thing Nintendo probably doesn't still have that copyright) are going to be a new power-up in LBP2. They would let people pick up and throw grabable stuff, including other sackboys! (even sackboys who are also other things- or other sackboys!)
That gave me this idea for a X4 challenge:

Yeah, I probably should have drawn this on my tablet, but sometimes paper's easier! :p
(In case you can't tell from the drawing, the challenge shows four sackpeople with power gloves (which look like slightly dark squares on the sackboys' hands- didn't know how the gloves look in game) holding each other up to get a block with a magnetic key switch on it in range of a magnetic key. Imagine how many other challenges you could make by "Stacking Up Sackboys" (I guess I'll make a level like this, but with sackbots too for really tall stacks)

The power gloves alone create tons of game play mechanics- too many, in fact, for me to post here. How many awesome power glove challenges can you come up with? Post them here!

I don't think you can pick up sackboys or sackboys, sorry....

This thread should be in LBP2 speculation and suggestions.

Just sayn'

For info on power gloves, please watch geveruah22's videos on his thread, in the news LBP2 section.

This can be done by having a thin layer between each Sackboy.
Sackboy 1 picked up the block and stands on a platform.
Sackboy 2 pickes up the platform and stands on another platform
Sackboy 3 Picked up the platform and stand on another platfform
Sackboy 4 picked up the platform and makes the Point A reach Point B

Power gloves also help you move objects you pick up between layers (if sackboy is holding something and moves a layer back, īt"moves back as well.)

And for throwing items, tho i don't remember about lifting sackboys.

ive just thought u may be able to pick up sackbots because they count as an object not a player

Atm, you will probably have to go with TheChannel's suggestion.

Cool drawing by the way. :D

Oh I could just see this now.
Except there are two towers, Player tower and Computer tower (or second Player tower).
The top sacks would have the Creatinators (or whatever they're called :p ) and set to emit missiles or rocket powered cheetahs.
The rest is obvious, oh how awesome that would be :)

If you could pick up sackboys and do everything you can with an object, what if you threw them at a wall? If so, this game just got a bit more violent.
