SackBoy To Lose His Stuffing In PAIN?
PAIN is one of those games that lets the player take out his frustrations on any number of unfortunate virtual individuals. Obviously, this trend lends itself to beating on recognizable characters, and this may be the reason behind SackBoy's inclusion in the comically abusive downloadable title.
That's right, according to the new Game Informer, LittleBigPlanet's adorable mascot will pop up as a bonus character for PAIN some time town the road. They don't tell us how SackBoy will be made available, but we believe he'll probably be amongst the extra downloadable content on the PSN. We can only imagine what might happen with SackBoy ready to experience the PAIN...but we do have a few questions. Firstly, does this mean we can expect other video game characters to jump into PAIN? Shouldn't gamers vote on the characters they'd most like to see sitting in a giant slingshot on the roof of a building? Secondly, SackBoy is like a puppet; he has no blood and guts. This must mean the stuffing will fly if he's seriously injured...right? It'll give new meaning to "beating the stuffing" out of something...or someone...or whatever. Either way, SackBoy is definitely making the rounds in preparation for his big debut.
We'll let you know when and if SackBoy will really make his auspicious appearance in PAIN. Perhaps all you need to do is buy LittleBigPlanet; maybe it'll come with a PSN voucher to nab the character for inclusion in PAIN. What do you think?
