View Full Version : LBP 3rd Birthday Spinoff (?)

04-21-2011, 11:45 PM
Hey, guys :b
I've been playing The 3rd Birthday (Square-Enix's PSP sequel of the Parasite Eve series on the PSone) a bit lately, and I just got a pretty grand idea. An LBP level (levels?) based on mechanics from 3rd Birthday (mostly the Overdive system)
As I literally JUST got this idea, I haven't planned anything out and I don't know completely where it'll lead.
Even so, community opinions matter greatly to me, so anything you all have to say is appreciated :D
I'll add on to this post as I get ideas, etc.

Edit [April 22]
Last night, shortly after posting this, I started working on this idea. It turned into a party-based system of four characters. Each of the characters are getting special moves and whatnot, and I might eventually (assuming this takes off) make a co-op version, where Player One has control of two characters and Player Two controls two.
-=Controls, Version 1.0=-
-All Characters-
/\ - Hold, use Dpad to select character (^Up, vDown, Right each select a different character)

-Character 1-
"Mysterious Hero" - Uses Holy powers to vanquish his foes
X - Spin Jump
RStick - Aim Gun
R1 - Fire bullet
*R2 - Fire Holy
*[] - Reload

-Character 2-
"Male Hero" - Heavy swords are his weapons of choice
X - halfJump
*[] - Swing sword

-Character 3-
"Female Hero" - Uses light, quick attacks with her dagger
X - Jump (Single, double', triple') 'spin jump
*[] - Attack with dagger

-Character 4-
"Stranger" - Magic is his ally, using various spells to decimate his enemies
X - Jump
O - Hold, Sprint

*Has not been implemented yet
All characters will have more to them, I just have to figure it all out.

If you ever do make a lvl with this id be happy to help. Sounds like a good idea.

It actually already went off in a different direction xD
Last night it turned into a 4-person party thing of sorts. Since the original concept was with 3rd Birthday, whenever this gets far enough I'll probably include it in the same 'universe,' using the same/similar things as the original game did.
I'll update the first post with what I've got.

Sounds good so far.

Haha, yepp. I think I'll be pwning in Mortal Kombat all weekend though, so this'll probably be as-is for a while.
