As previously mentioned, I’ve not played a minute of LittleBigPlanet or its sequel, so I can’t say for sure how accurate this hand-made recreation of a (typical? certain?) LBP level is. However, I do feel confident in saying it’s totally, amazingly impressive, even if you don’t know or give a shit about the game. It’s like one of those OK Go videos, but on a budget, and based on a videogame. Honestly, if I had to make a single complaint about it, it’s that I think I see one of the hands operating the Sackboy dolls for a second or two. Can’t be sure, though. (Via Great White Snark)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
