This January doesn't seem as crazy as last for games, but I'm looking forward to Little Big Planet 2 and Dead Space 2. LBP2 is an odd interest, since the real appeal is in creation and though I explored the creation tools in the first LBP, it was only enough to get a feel for it. It was enough, however, to realize I would have loved the game if I were younger (and had lots of spare time on my hands), and the pure joy of its patched-up visuals and Stephen Fry's voiceovers really made me fall in love. I played through it all, 100%-ing every level, and the birthday following, Jen made me a replica doll of my LBP character, and it was one of the coolest gifts I've ever received.
