Sonic Costume Pack For Sackboy

You know, it's weird. I never really feel the urge to go, "awwww" but whenever I look at Sackboy, I just can't help myself. It's like a chemical reaction.

Anyway, this cute little dude with the button eyes is getting yet another costume pack, as if he doesn't have enough new dress-up clothes already. According to Siliconera, Sony and Sega are teaming up to give Sackboy a dose of blue-streaked flash and panache, as costumes from Sonic Unleashed will soon be available. Five new Sonic costumes based on the aforementioned title will drop for LBP in about one month's time; you can choose from Sonic, Sonic the Werehog, Tails, Knuckles, and of course, the infamous Dr. Eggman. This is yet another installment in a long line of DLC for one of the best PS3 exclusives to date, and if you've been a hardcore Sega fan for a long time, this new costume pack ought to interest you. Besides, Sonic Unleashed didn't turn out as well as we would've hoped, but LBP is always fun to play...might as well take Sonic and his friends' likenesses and plop 'em into a better game, right?  Gotta be positive.

But as that article says, where are those Final Fantasy VII costumes we were promised? Sackboy as Cloud or Sephiroth? Oh dear Lord, that'd be enough to make me start playing LBP again right there.

Robotnik is the original. He is the only evil name against Sonic. Whoever introduced this dumb Eggman crap deserves to be fired, come on Sega, what went wrong?

Agree 100%... when I fist heard that I got really pissed.

Though in SA2 Battle, it mentions Dr. Robotnik as Eggman's grandfather, but then how old would that make sonic???

I just thought it was stupid but at least they sort of acknowledged the originals name...

Dr. EGGMAN is the name for Robotnick in Japan, kind of like in Street Fighter how Charlie is called Nash and Akuma is called Gouki. I have Sonic Jam for Sega Saturn and you can watch clips of the japanese tv show from back in mid 90's and the subtitles say Dr. Eggman. I'm used to hearing Dr. Eggman over Dr. Robotnick. Which one do I like better, Dr. Robotnick. Dr. Eggman sounds like something 5 year old would call him.

Oh godamnit! More proof someones stealing ideas from my brain meats!!!

I made costumes for all on that list except for sonic the humanpig (were=human / hog=...pig)

I am glad that ideas like this keep dropping into Mm brains because it shows how well they respond to the players based on costumes we make and levels we produce based on these very games ^_^ good on you media molecule

I have bought every costume so far and you've got me yet again with something I already wanted ^_^

I agree, eggman is total BS. They'd be better off calling him wile e coyote than that brain fart. I mean it's pretty sad when a name makes Robotnik sound creative by comparison.
And I didn't mind unleashed...I still have yet to beat it but if they didn't make you collect those stupid medals I would have. It also would have been way better if it had knuckles.
BUT IT HAD CUSTOM SOUNDTRACKS BABY.
It's still the only game that's surprised me by having it. The ONLY other games I've seen with it are all racers with the exception of wwe for the entrances but that's pretty much required by now.
