This edition of This Week in LittleBigPlanet is dedicated to the hardworking men and women of the Media Molecule QA team. They work so hard but it seems that despite that no matter how many bugs are blasted, one always manages to evade their fumigation. Contrary to the cries from the vocal minority, most of us in the LBP community really do appreciate the work you do on what must be one of the hardest-to-test games ever created.
So, in honour of the QA people, (after a whole five minutes in PhotoShop) I hereby certify this edition of TWiLBP, Rocket Cheetah-Approved.
Speed Create #17
Cobbled together following capture software problems (I’ve been there), Mnniska shows us the creation of a cheese mouse and a new version of the Witch character for his upcoming level. He also discusses the PlayStation Vita and Touch My Katamari. As always, it’s fascinating to watch and LittleBigPlanet level coming together

Media Molecule have also released Vita-optimised version of some of their official wallpapers – you can find those over at LittleBigPlanet.com.

If You Ever Download My Patch… I’ll Bring You Bugs
It’s a Jim Noir joke. Get it?…… I’ll get my coat.
Update 1.10 introduced a problem which rated ‘pretty annoying’ on the glitchometer – it stopped live emitters from functioning correctly which in-turn caused many levels (including story levels) to stop working. Last week’s 1.11 update fixed that but the bad news is the update also broke a few other things. No-doubt fixes are already in the works.
