“About Sacking Time”
We’ve been waiting an awful long time for this HUB, haven’t we? First promised for an end-of-2013 released, then pushed beyond its existence… well, it’s time now to anticipate its release. “Why”, you ask, “why anticipate? You’ve told us to do this before. Time and time again you let us down, you lazy scrubs. I plan to revolt, along with my minions, and we’ll take your damned establishment down by force.” Well, hold on there, airhead. We were just extrapolating the data before. Now we have a pretty good clue as to how long we have to wait. But that’s not something to open with, is it? That’s something you wait until the second paragraph for. And… there, here it comes.
Of course they wouldn’t. At least, not six months. We’re still uneducated in what HUB offers for us apart from the new ‘challenges’ and the inclusion of story levels from the canon series of games available for PlayStation 3, but we’re going to assume that they’re adding more than we ever bargained for. With this postponed release date, and the incessant assurances guiding us to believe that HUB will ‘come eventually’, we’re assuming that there’ll be more than enough packed into the final build of HUB and there’ll be plenty of features to keep us satisfied until… well, a future canon release.
Not only has the update managed to catch our attention, but the PEGI site (or, the Pan European Game Information, for you knowledge-hungry crooks) has recently rated LittleBigPlanet HUB for PlayStation 3, suggesting the game contains non-realistic looking violence towards fantasy characters and pictures/sounds likely to be scary to young children. Fear andviolence? Well, this is fantastic. Okay, we’re not letting much up. It was similarly rated this way for LittleBigPlanet 2, so there isn’t much change here. And there’s ‘online’, so there’s no need to worry about having the servers cut short on us all. However, like we’ve said, both Sony and Media Molecule (if they still care about us… boo hoo) haven’t really released any information regarding the game. In fact, most of our information on HUB has been critically extrapolated and we haven’t had anything to go by until now.
