Welcome to the latest and greatest edition of the Community Spotlight! It's a big one this month as we now feature - drum roll please - the first batch of LBP Vita Spotlights. In addition, we're excited to welcome OriginalCreator to the crew to help us play through all of those new and exciting Vita levels! On a sadder note, we also say goodbye to the venerable PSP LBP as we will no longer be Spotlighting PSP levels.

http://i1.lbp.me/img/bl/5c106ca408f3008578e886c00a7803b3aee4a19e.pngIn Search of... Cupcakes? [1 Player]BrosefJenkinsWould you look at that! You've planted your knitted feet into another adventure! Somewhere in this magical world, a being called Eddy will give you your task. (WARNING: Contains many flashing lights) Thanks to Festerd_Jester, Mnniska, SonofaSack96, Evil_Fishy, and all that were involved. Thanks to FootlessYeti for voice acting and for the character design.You've just stumbled upon a nifty little land and immediately the proprietor sets a task for you, Get him a cupcake, STAT! And off we go. Your search for the elusive sugary treet will be an eventful one with fantastic platforming that will have you bouncing, swinging and flying your way through a visually impressive level. How unfortunate that once you do locate the pastry, you have to give it away. Oh well, such is the life of a hero.In this fast-paced adventure, you are first greeted by a seemingly emotionally disturbed character named Eddy who is demanding a cupcake. Simple, right? WellÖ not exactly. Rather than take a trip to the pantry, you must run, leap, swing, and bounce your way through an environment filled with spikes. I couldnít help but take time in between stages to observe the truly unique look of the level which fit the theme perfectly. Eddy may get to keep the cupcake, but you can still try collecting all the score bubbles and battling for the top spot on the scoreboard.

With the great cake-i-nator, you 'll can do everything little sack! --- Special thanks : chaosgear, Gangsta_lighting, kipovat for contribution in the level. Ghost-creators for beta-test. Nk827 for the funny music. And Media molecule for inspiration ^^' --- Platformer 1-4 players - difficulty : easy.I like a good "candy" themed level so when I saw this I was delighted to dive in. It looks like, once again, sackboy's expertise is needed, this time, in Victoria's kitchen or rather, she needs your assistance to get to the kitchen. The visuals will remind you a lot of the Victoria story levels but the similarities end there as the gameplay is quite original and very fun to boot. Strap you cakinator on and get ready to chomp on some Sweet Candy.In this level, alain251 takes us back to Victoriaís factory where we must help Victoria reach the kitchen to bake a grand cake. Alain251 truly adds a new flavor to the ďcandyĒ theme with quite a bit of unique gameplay using the revamped cakinator. Youíll need a sweet tooth to find the secret cakes hidden throughout the level, so without further ado, Dig in! Alain251 has cooked up something special with this level. The visuals may have a familiar feel but theyíre brilliantly done and the gameplay is fresh and inventive. Add some great music, lots of shticky, shlurrpy sound effects and you have a real treat of a level. Sweet, toothsome and good enough to eat!

http://i4.lbp.me/img/bl/3b4f198bdc8e535ff5d3c01632d0d836ea55ccd5.pngSHADOW S OF SALEM (Rise of the Witches) Part.1 PirmautSalem city 1692 D.C. The Story of the witches Began.Discover the mysteries of the Dark city,solves puzzles,Defeat the creatures of the darkness,pass the obstacles and discover your destiny..MUSICS BY FESTERD_JESTER&THE DEEJAY..(Best for 1 or 2 players).SPECIAL THANKS TO FESTERD JESTER.Wow! This one here. Whoa. Ok, let me compose myself here. The visuals here just absolutely blew me away.I'm always amazed to see the level of detail that someone can put into a silhouette style level and this one is chock full of them. You begin the journey opening your eyes and discovering that you are locked in a cage and now must find a way out of this prison. Once you do, oh boy, it's on. The scenes are creepy and filled with a plethora of mini-games, such as purifying witches and catching chickens. There's also loads of great platforming on hand as well. A great spooky Halloween level that you must play.Agreed Bio! This level is truly one of a kind. Pirmaut brings together puzzling, platforming, minigames, and boss battles into an epic new series. With so many different types of gameplay, this level is great for anyone. Even for people like me who canít always figure out what to do next because Pirmaut included small color coordinated lights to guide the player. And you canít miss the eerie silhouette setting which compliments the dark and mysterious nature of the level. I strongly recommend this level to all types of players because it really mashes together quite a bit of gameplay genres.The grey mistiness and dark silhouette outlines of this level give it a true eeriness. This is no jolly Halloween romp but a quirky, dark-toned adventure in which youíll meet witches, black knights and various creatures of the night. The art style is wonderful Ė a sort of Baroque horror - and it makes a perfect backdrop for the sinister tale in which you find yourself caught up. On your journey youíll be faced with puzzles, mini-games and cool boss fights. The number and variety of the challenges is amazing. It all adds up to a chilling and exciting experience, perfect for Halloween!

http://i8.lbp.me/img/bl/4d838d7e2d617732b0e8b98a7ca2755831ee3ba1.pngJapan BeautykoknsunShe was touted as incredibly beautiful woman in the history of Japan. But, nobody know the truth. Yes, truth is only God possesses. right ;p best for 1~2players.What can I say? To play a level by koknsun is to be a part of something that is half art, half theatre and wholly magical. A press of a button and before your eyes scenes shift, fans unfurl and trees blossom. Itís enthralling, wonder-full stuff. One transformation follows another each more beautiful than the last. I lost count of the number of times I stopped to take a picture, thinking each time that this was the pinnacle, only to find another, even lovelier, scene around the corner. Itís all orchestrated with such grace and beauty: the colours, the lighting and the clever mechanics all work so harmoniously together. ItĎs fun too Ė I loved whirling and spinning around those attracto-gel spheres Ė wheeeeee! Erm, yeah, go play this level Ė the man has panache and style in spades. Long may he continue creating in LPB!
Lass said it right there. Playing a Koknsun level is like being part of a grand piece of artwork. I feel like I've stepped into a magical painting and am watching it being created before my very eyes. The whole level is just a symphony of brilliance where every moving piece is carefully orchestrated and moves with style and grace. Like Lass, I too just found myself stopping so many times to stare at the grandeur of it all. A remarkable level filled with terrific gameplay and epic visuals, go see this now!

http://i0.lbp.me/img/bl/c508a87ac9fc04a3fd25248ec8d5633a6836da73.pngBuddy' s Gallery of Destructive Tunes!BuddydestructionA highly detailed menu containing two pages (and an extra Top Ten page) of great, original music composed by myself: Buddydestruction! Contains forty tracks from Arabian and Indian desert themed music, to epic orchestral and boss battle music! Nearly all of them can be collected as prizes! The menu even matches your player colour! ENJOY!! -:|:- Cover image my @Monkeyfrog77. Thanks to my wonderful dad for voice acting! And a BIG thanks for the help and support from the LBN community!Sweet auditory goodness Batman, this gallery is awesome! Buddydestruction has created a fantastic gallery comprising of forty, that's a four and a zero, of great foot tapping, head nodding music! You'll find a healthy variety of tunes on hand, from Arabian and themed music to fantastic orchestral and boss battle compositions, it's all here! And you know what else? He gives it away! Pop into to wonderfully organized gallery and listen until your heart's content.Though I can't create music, I sure enjoy it! And this music gallery, Buddydestruction puts together a collection of some incredible tunes. In this well organized gallery, you can find anything from electronic to ambient music, or even some orchestral or Arabian pieces. As long as you've got your volume up for the tunes, pay attention to the voice acting because it pretty hilarious and really brings some flare to the gallery. So if you're looking for the perfect tune to fit your new level or just want to relax and listen to some tunes, be sure to stop by Buddy's Gallery of Destructive Tunes!

http://i5.lbp.me/img/bl/6c504261e223262065e908571110a7303c966572.pngCrysta llize your life (1-3 Players)Brazen-95170You are blocked in a wonderful cave. The way will be difficult to escape, because of dangerous crystals and wagon... --- Difficulty : Medium --- Great prize bubbles --- Because of lags, the level is best as 1 Player --- Music by Comishguy67, Foofles and Cortster12Oh cool! I haven't played a good "mine" level in some time and this one here certainly filled that quota. You find yourself trapped deep within a crystal filled cavern system and now must work your way out. In order to do that, you're going to have to have a keen eye and quick reflexes because the way is not all roses and rainbows, there is some challenging platforming in front of you. But it's ever so fun and clever and those mine carts were a hoot! Go on, get your spelunking on!
Wow! This level really had it all! Stunning visuals throughout combined with great lighting to really give the level that cave-feel. Feel free to admire the visuals but donít take your eyes of the tracks because Brazen-95170 also provides some great platforming and really intense mine cart riding. So grab some friends, gear up, and dive straight into this action packed level. Caves and crystals: a classic combination and with an added spice of danger thrown in who could resist! This level not only looks great but packs a punch with its gameplay. Your only way out of the gorgeous, silvery-blue, echoing caverns is to hop into a handy minecart and hope for the best. That and be prepared to jump, swing and grab your way out of danger; those glowing blue crystals may look beautiful but you donít want to get too close. Quick reflexes and good timing will stand you in good stead though. So grab a hard hat and hold on tight. Itís going to be a bumpy ride!

VITA Spotlight

http://i4.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/9b41956ce5bcdf0706a77ecde65164ac8596c9c7.pngGrievo us Grappling [Score Challenge]bonner123Use your hooking and dodging skills in this pointful survival challenge.The first in a long line of Vita Spotlights this week will have you using your grappling skills to their most extreme. A well-designed survival challenge with simple visuals is enough to get you hooked, as you swing, fall and rise to avoid obstacles and grab points. A great start to any spotlight.
Ready for a challenge? Bonner has cooked up a real barn stormer for the first vita spotlight and does it with style. Clean, crisp visuals and a unique take on the grappling hook mechanic. You won't know what is coming next, as the level throws everything it can at you, and tries to unhinge your grip. Highly addictive gameplay, and all in the palm of your hands, Even if you don't land the high score, you still win.

http://ib.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/acb33fdc645d878146e7de46beeac982a40d2bc8.pngShapel ycomphermcThink your way through 10 mind-bending puzzles in this arcade-style mini game!It's not rare to see a compher level in the spotlight, and Vita looks like it'll be no different. The clean visuals set up a level that may seem simple, but fast becomes a horribly addictive, time consumer! The ability to save your progress and come back later will come in handy in this fantastic level. Shapely could be a top selling casual game you could find on the App store today. As itís simple, fun, addicting and can be played at small chunks at a time. With the new nifty memoriser tool, Comphermc has allowed userís to save their progression and go back to the level later. Which makes it great for when you have 5 minutes or so to kill.

http://i1.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/aa1d60364d5826de9427214cbe4f43a9d84773b8.pngTextve nture Agarwel
Text based adventure. Embark on an epic journey to save the Kingdom. Explore multiple areas, solve the situation in several ways and enjoy the multiple endings. (game is assembled from more than 300 unique "game pages") Please leave a comment with brief info if you reached happy/sad/combined endings. Thanks PS: Im really sorry parts of some words are censored. I did not anticipated such strong language filter to be applied after publishing :-(
This is a first, a text adventure in LittleBigPlanet, and a pretty good one at that! I love when creators really think outside the box, and what Agarwel has done really opens up a lot of tantalizing new possibilities for future levels. If you're in the mood for something different (or just a fan of the genre), have a gander at this level - you won't be disappointed.
Are you ready for story time? Agarwel has created one of most unique and diverse levels I have ever played, and does it with no art, and virtually no gameplay. The name of the level, Textventure says it all. Reminiscent of the old text based adventure game on early computers, you will read a scenario, make decisions, and go to your next task, based on those decisions. The writing is remarkably funny, and had me laughing out loud on several occasions. Deeply rotted in rpg roots, you can level up, make crucial (or hilarious decisions), and go on a grand adventure to rescue a damsel in distress. The possibilities of lbp vita are boundless. From high flying platformers that take your breath away, to one of a kind, unique masterpieces like Textventure. The future is wide open with this game.

http://i2.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/ea24025e7c026d7906394de1e2441a04364defb9.pngHoney Village (platformer)yu-kamoneBees live in this village peacefully. Let's take a walk in beautiful nature and sweet honey.(1-4player) --- ここはミツバチたちが平和に暮らす村。豊かな自然、甘いハチミツの世界の中を散歩してみましょ う。
This is one of the few levels I've played where the visuals surpass anything I've seen on a LBP game. You'll forget what your playing and get pulled into a level of wonder, discovery and... bees!? As weird as the concept is, bouncing and swinging through this level is a delight and you'll want to come back again and again just to see how yu-kamone made each section! A true 3D feeling level deserves its place in this spotlight. Honey Village was the first community level I played on my shiny (not so) new vita. I have played many levels since. Yet few levels are yet to surpass this wonderful level, visually this level is an absolute delight, the colours were so vibrate you cannot help but smile. The gameplay was simple but showed some of the capabilities of the vita with the touch screen. Yu-Kamone seems to have adapted to the vita side of things quite well, and every inch of this level shows it off. Adorable visuals, simple but fun gameplay, and a fantastic example of the vita community's strength. If this one of the levels made in the roughly the first week of the game's release, I cannot WAIT until we have creators like Yu-kamone mastering the tricks and tools of LBPV to make something even more amazing further down the road.

http://if.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/7cf17ac67807985bb276e6e548197f0e69d80f46.pngShadow s VITASlurmMacKenziePlay with shadows to progress in this level. A short (very short) platformer for one player only. I hope you'll enjoy your journey in the shadow, feel free to report bugs and issue if you found any. Thanks for playing
SlurmMacKenzie delivers the goods here with a wonderful concept. It seems simple enough - sackboy can travel only on the shadows of objects high above him. The concept is turned on it's head with various puzzles and platforming. A perfect level to pick up and play quickly. SlurmMacKenzie was known for his innovations in LBP 2 and it looks like he isnít stopping anytime soon with his new LBP Vita level. Shadows is a sequel to one of Slurmís smash hit levels in which Sackboy is only allowed to travel across shadows which are formed from above objects. The gameplay in the level is flawless, changing the global lighting to move objects was just genius!

http://i9.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/c89597b9ff6f44f228465446126e54919339752f.pngSpace Corps ReVITAlizedTaffey/tsr13It's been a while since your last mission, Sackboy. Time for some Space Corps mandated retraining! [1 Player]For anyone who's missed the Space Corps series on PSP, there's now no excuse! One of the most popular series makes a comeback on the Vita with a wonderful iteration. Smooth clean visuals, witty humour and fart noises are what you should expect - and who can't love that combination!? Taffey has jam packed this level with witty jokes which will have you chuckling to yourself on many occasions, throughout the level. As well as that Space Corps ReVITAlized has really cool rage intensive gameplay which will have you throwing your vita across the room in no time. Taffey even threw in a fun little mini game where you have to try and eat as much dehydrated space food as you can YUM. Tross has tickled my funny bone (And probably making me break a few of my blood-vessels in rage) with a charming new level set in the reaches of space. Danger and comedy are tightly packed into every nook and cranny of this orbital death trap, making it a unique mix of difficult, yet side splitting scenarios. Totally worth a spot in my downloads list!

http://ib.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/e8b45500a28223b10ca51fffd4f7752b2eda0013.pngCRUSH! BRANDON-BARTIEYour fingers have unknown powers! Yes, even yours and even Nanny Beatrice! With your SUPER STRONG fingers I challenge you to CRUSH every last thing on the planet! Are you the ALMIGHTY CRUSHER? ((V.2. adds a game mode))
CRUSH! has a simple concept, use two fingers on the front and back touch screens to literally 'crush' objects on screen. However this soon picks up some speed and with both time and survival modes you don't want to miss this addictive level! The title says it all, you have to quite literally crush the meteors which are flying across the screen by using the front touch screen and the back touch screen at the same time. Sounds easy? The level quickly gets hectic with meteors flying everywhere and that fun little game you were playing quickly turns into a battle to save Earth!

http://i3.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/553c5581bbe4f69b51b380a7c1586444c538525a.pngFrozen Castle (platformer)yu-kamoneYou waver in the frozen castle. Can you escape from this cold and uncanny castle?(1-4player) ---- あなたは凍った城に迷いこんでしまった。寒くて不気味なこの城からあなたは脱出できますか?B rrr! Yu-kamone's second level in this spotlight has a frosty exterior and tonnes of atmosphere. But get passed that and you're greeted with a level that warms your heart with it's great platforming. A fantastic level, and we're all hoping to see more of yu-kamone. A Brrr-illiant level from Yu-Kamone, Frozen Castle has stunning visuals which which really draws you into the atmospheric masterpiece. As well as the great visuals the levelís gameplay is fun and makes full use of the vitaís touch screen. It even has a snazzy hat which lets you fire touchable blocks!Oh my goodness! Not only one level, but a whopping TWO full, awesome levels by the same creator!? Whatever this guy is eating with his cereal, I want some too! Yu-Kamone serves us up a dramatic switch from the comforts of a lovely bee-filled forest, to the cold, dark, scary caverns of a frozen castle keep, complete with deadly traps and pitfalls. The touch screen is used to tamper with ancient machines frozen solid by the ice that has invaded the dark recesses of the castle, while the creatinator is used for those situations where just breaking the ice won't cut it! This level gives you yet another reason to delve into the quickly expanding vita community, so what are you waiting for!?

http://i0.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/7503ee7cf2a7de4b47fb55b5228089f52e875d77.pngTouchy Wouchy ForestjaffakreeJump, grab and TOUCH your way through Touchy Wouchy Forest!The first of two jaffakree levels has more atmosphere than a world cup final (or some sort of other sports event equivalent for you Americans ;) ). Whatever the comparison, this level has some wonderful visuals that will have you gawping. The platforming will need you to keep your wits about as it's fast and frantic at times,this man's one to watch for sure.Anything with Touchy Wouchy in the title has to be good. Jaffakree may be new to lbpcentral, but he sure isn't new at making levels. This may be my favorite platformer on the community moon right now. Beautiful art design, and gameplay that is as tight as a snare drum. This is what lbp planet is all about. A fun little platformer, with you guessed it... touch based gameplay! The touch screen gameplay really brings the level to life as you feel like a physical part of the level when you use your God-like fingers to manipulate the level. The visuals were great too, with a nice atmosphere making it a great all round level.

http://i2.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/9325b4775928164f2e0d9d7d24002dcdbc4772e5.pngTouchy Wouchy SpaceshipjaffakreeMake your way through the low grav USS Sackboy to re-engage the artificial gravity!And if you didn't play his first level just up there ^^^ then definitely get on this one! A spaceship level isn't original, but this one just feels so clean and involves new platforming and touch ideas that in bucks that trend. Turning back on the gravity may sound easy, but there are some ruthlessly hard moments. All this tied up with some more classic jaffakree visuals and you can't afford to miss this.Don't put your hands back in your pockets just yet. As quick as Jaffakree pulls you from the Touchy Wouchy Forest, he throws you into the Touchy Wouchy Spaceship. Sounds like fun!! With tons of low gravity platforming calling your name. How can you resist? The task is simple. Restore gravity to the ship. But nothing is ever simple is it? This level is beyond beautiful. The aesthetic Jaffakree has created is just as good as the Tarsier story levels. With rock solid gameplay and clever, intuitive touch controls that add a little zest, to an already incredible package.

http://i1.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/ea134b6ab72a69b73cb7b73ca73add75fee8aa7d.pngFlint (Puzzle Platform)DaaMonkeyA Cold and Gray City. A Small Robot. A Perilous Journey. This is my entry for theTarsier Studios Intership Contest. (If the Music don't Start Please Restart the Level)The combination of puzzles and platforming in this stylish level from DaaMonkey will have you both scratching your head and honing your reflexes. Itís set in a murky silhouette world where danger lurks and enemy bots are on the prowl. You must control a small robot and get him through the obstacles in his way and past the waiting guards Ė and all with the clock ticking against you. One false move and youíre back to the start! Itís ingenious, looks fantastic and has great depth to the gameplay. This is one youíll come back to again and again!One of my favorite new features on lbp vita is the memorizer. Alowing creators to make retail quality games with the ability to save your progress, come back later, and start right where you left off. DaaMonkey has made one of the finest puzzler platforming apps on vita with Flint. Navigate your guy, through brain twisting puzzles stages that only get more challenging and more rewarding as you make progress through this wonderful piece of art. And best of all? It's free. Take that App Store!!

http://ia.api.vita.lbp.me/img/bl/12ace8c3b09a9cd7ab2f3eb91720f957cf06fd2e.pngMeteor bat-19Defend the planet against the meteors which are falling of the sky! Use your finger to shoot them and survive 180 seconds. Enjoy and have fun. bat-19 It looks like saving planets from meteors is a little trend in this spotlight episode, but this level does it completely different. This has got to the most well presented level I have played on LBP Vita so far. I was blown away just by the user interface not to mention, the fabulous lighting with great custom made backgrounds which are a treat to the eyes. Oh yeah and the actual gameplay is a lot of fun too! You have to fire bullets at the oncoming meteors which gets rather hectic over time.Oh boy, whatever you do, NEVER trust me to look after your plants! Theyíll be dead before you know it. In this cool arcade game from bat-19 youíre tasked with shooting incoming meteors out of the sky to protect your precious plants. Sounds simple, right? But then you also have to shield them from falling rain, stop the rain covers being blasted by the meteors and make sure you donít run out of ammo at the same time. Juggling all of that will test your tactical skills as much as your shooting ability. Itís colourful, beautifully presented and makes brilliant use of the VITAís touchscreen. So is your trigger finger also a green finger? Load up this fun mini-game and find out!

PSP Spotlight

Base Defense 2 [LBP2]Playing_Serioslyhttp://i1163.photobucket.com/albums/q559/Schark6000/LBP%20PSP%20-%20level%20Screenshots/BaseDefense2LBP2_zps862a0b53.png[Remake] This is some kind of tower defense levels but now harder. Now you have two weapons, new enemies,features.theme and other stuff.

Congratulations to Playing_Seriosly for scoring a hat trick, with three spotlights in the episode! Almost three years after the debut of lbp on psp, it is refreshing to see a level this creative still being made. Gather up your forces and prepare for battle, in a very unique spin on a classic formula.
Before we sadly start this last PSP Spotlight, the crew would like to take a moment and congratulate Playing_Seriosly for being the 2nd user to have 3 spotlighted levels in one episode! This is a milestone in spotlight history! The first of his three spotlightees is "Base Defense 2." I admit a part of me groaned deep down when I saw the title of this, but I was genuinely surprised how good it was! It is ridiculously impressive to create a level like this in PSP and therefore should not be looked over by anyone.

Carnival MadnessPlaying_Serioslyhttp://i1163.photobucket.com/albums/q559/Schark6000/Scharks%20Level%20of%20the%20Week/Week1-CarnivalMadnessbyPlaying_seriosly_zpsd89b72d2.pngY ou are invited to the most biggest carnival in the LBP community.

After playing lbp on vita the last month, I was surprised how good this level looked. The art design has a cool vibe that matches the level design perfectly. Gameplay is here in spades, with nice bubble combos, and clever environmental puzzles. This was a total joy to play!
With Carnivalia being the focus of many LBPers nowadays, it seems appropriate for there to be carnival themed levels popping up everywhere - even on PSP too? Yep, Playing_Seriosly has created a fantastic carnival level that isn't plagued with the hollows' devious schemes, but instead with great gameplay and an original atmosphere that provides a very satisfying experience.

Touch The City!Playing_Serioslyhttp://i1233.photobucket.com/albums/ff393/valmassoilbpc/aaaaaa.jpgHmmm... I cant create a touch screen from your psp but I have an idea how to emit this function. Enjoy my new creation and get ready for the awesome items. (level about metropolis, finger print sticker and awesome stuff)

Playing_Seriosly has made one of the most inventive levels I have played on psp ever. With the use of stickers, you will be 'touching' your way to scoreboard. A slick and inventive level design will keep you trucking in this perfectly paced masterpiece. This level literally put a smile on my face. Great stuff!!
If you're a vita-less PSPer, "Touch The City" is for you. This level provides a concept that you, sticker-ly speaking, touch the city to progress through a mechanical metropolis. Jam packed with interesting mechanics and fun gameplay, this level appeals to everyone, especially those eager to 'touch' in LBP.

Also from the Showcase...
Played everything in the PSP Spotlight and still looking for more?
This level stood out from the crowd for a variety of reasons, so be sure to check it out!

Well done all of the creators who made it in the spotlight! :)

But I did felt a bit upset that none of my vita levels made it.

10-14-2012, 08:16 PM
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!! How sad! LBP PSP spotlights gone? Oh well. To be absolutely honest, I don't play LBP PSP anymore, but they are still some sad news. :frightened:
On a happier note, congrats to the spotlighted! I've got tons of level in my Vita queue now! Wheeeee! :p

10-14-2012, 08:19 PM
Doom! No VITA spotty. Not even a nod. ;_;
You just wait, I'll come back with ... Ehm ... MORE CIRCLES! Yes, that must be it. :3

10-14-2012, 08:23 PM
This spotlight is huge!! :cool:

Lot's of great levels to play.

Thanks to the spotlight team for all the hard work.

And thanks for the Sugar Pop nod!! :D

10-14-2012, 08:48 PM
Oh man, I thought I added comments for the final PSP Spotlight :( Sorry to playing_seriosly, I swear I loved your levels and commented :p

But out with the old - and now onto the LBP Vita spotlight!! Here's to another 50 odd spotlights for the new handheld spotlights! :p Hurrah

10-14-2012, 09:08 PM
Congrats everyone spotlighted! Going to play these levels, they look really cool. Too bad the PSP spotlights are over now, but it's not a surprise for me.

10-14-2012, 09:11 PM
Congradulations to all the spotlights and nods! It's a shame to see the psp spotlights finally end :( but from the ashes rises the beautiful new vita spotlights for all your handheld needs!

10-14-2012, 09:42 PM
Great work everyone! The fact we have LBPVita spotlights up and running (and levels to spotlight) is an amazing feat by both the crew and the creators.

It is sad to see the PSP Spotlights come to a close - though we shouldn't be too hung over the unavoidable. It had to happen eventually. I certainly hope this doesn't keep all you great creators from creating on PSP, because there's always people out there (including me) who love some PSP goodness.

10-14-2012, 10:22 PM
Thanks for the spolight guys, and congrats to other spotlithed creators. Can't play the level yet but i've already queued some of them to have something to play.

10-15-2012, 12:02 AM
Doom! No VITA spotty. Not even a nod. ;_;
You just wait, I'll come back with ... Ehm ... MORE CIRCLES! Yes, that must be it. :3

Same here... I'll be back with more story and better visuals... and maybe a minigame(The Blob).

EDIT: Kind of sad about PSP. But we have a final project to finish it off! APOCALYPSE TEAM, GET TO WORK NOW!!!

10-15-2012, 02:57 AM
Wow! Three different spotlights for three different LBP games!? This isn't just a humongous spotlight, it's also the first spotlight to have segments for 3 games at once! What an awesome record! Congratulations to those creators who were spotlighted and given nods, and to those who didn't quite make it; keep trying! You can only get better with every level you make! :)

10-15-2012, 07:26 AM
Good work!
Pleased to see koknsun praised as he deserves here.
And it's always nice to see new creators spotlighted :)

Congradulations to all the spotlights and nods! It's a shame to see the psp spotlights finally end :( but from the ashes rises the beautiful new vita spotlights for all your handheld needs!

Congrats my friend, didn't notice your new job!
(I never read the OP, just check the levels :p)

10-15-2012, 02:38 PM
Oh snap, it's about to get real. The Vita spotlights bust the frak in with a pitcher of Kool Aid in one hand and sunglasses in the other. This is like getting two supplies of colored pencils, not crayons cause they suck.

10-15-2012, 03:50 PM
Congrats on all the spotlighted levels. Man, I wish I have PSVita right now, so I can check out the first set of spotlighted Vita levels.

10-15-2012, 04:46 PM
Thanks for the spotlight! Wow, it's been a while... I really could get back into this whole creating thing. ;)

Nice job as always Spotlight team, and many thanks for the kind words. More than anything, I'm just glad Gray and Deadmn didn't throw their Vitas out a window after playing my level. :)

Sad to see the LBP PSP Spotlights go... but it had to happen eventually. Such is the way of things. :( On the bright side, LBP Vita seems to be more than filling the void. Yay for handheld LBP!

10-15-2012, 06:27 PM
Woohoo, first. Also thanks.

10-15-2012, 07:06 PM
Great Job once again Spotlight crew.

Also, would it be possible to switch back to the old hub style. I have been having alot of problems with this new hub style in which all/most of the levels are locked and popping will not fix the problem :(


edit: while writing this up and standing in the level in seems to fix itself, maybe time will fix the locks, but I don't think most people who come across this will recognize that. Sorry if I am being a nuisance :D

10-16-2012, 02:08 PM
Thank you very Much Guys!
For me this is a Big surprise,Really very much appreciated.
A nice present for my coming birthday and especially an important stimulus in this moment of my life.
Congratulations to all spotlighted levels.Great selection And Great work as always.

thank you for picking my level "FRIENDSHIP QUESTIONS".XD
Im glad to I was picked with my friend koknsun.
I think his level "Japan Beauty" is worth of Mmpick.
I hope he is evaluated justly...
