Honest To God Effort

Okay, I was going to go into a bit of a rant about the whole Activision/Bungie thing, but that's been done to death. Activision is Evil, FULL STOP.

But that has been washed aside with the smiley, happy feeling that I am left with after watching the LBP2 debut trailer.

Words fail to describe the wonders that can be found in LBP. You may have to wade through the countless race/points/ramp/crap levels to get to the better ones, but when you find someone that has actually created something special, then you get to feel that pure platforming joy that you seldom feel outside of Nintendo (Not to say other platforms don't have any. Shout out to Sucker Punch, Capcom and Naughty Dog)

If you haven't seen the trailer yet, watch it. It seems as if Media Molecule may be a national treasure in the making, if it's not already one. It's good to see that some developers are still willing to take a risk to reap the rewards. We need more dev's like this! This year's E3 should be a good'un, ZOMFGZELDA!!1!

To finish, here's some other developers you may or may not have heard of, but generally release consistently good games:
FROM Software
Platinum Games (Clover merged with ODD Incorporated)
Arc System Works
WayForward Technologies
Hudson Entertainment
HAL Laboratory, Inc.

And many more! Any other rare ones  that people know of, let me know, 'kay?

EDIT: Holy Crapola! I had no idea it was Bungie who made Oni! That game was awesome! =D
