I just don't enjoy creating my own content or user created content. I have every LBP ever (even got LBP 3 for PS4 after getting it forfPS3) for every consoleand I despised playing user created stuff. I just did it for my daughter. I even skipped Mario Maker.

There just isn't the feeling of joy or accomplishment I get from playing something the "real" developers create. It's like reading fan fiction. Not for me.

I feel the same way, which is why I’m so disappointed Dreams has only a 3h or so campaign. 

We aren't entirely sure what the campaign is. I have heard devs say 3 hours and I have heard devs say 5-6 hours.



If you are buying Dreams for the campaign then you are missing the point.

I may have asked this before but when you say it's not for you, what do you actually mean? I'm still uncertain some people understand what Dreams is (no disrespect). It's Youtube for games, art, sculptures, animations, movies, shorts, shows etc. These creations are nothing like LBP in that they were always good 'for LBP'. These creations are games you will likely want to play (or any of the above). Why wouldn't playing free games be 'your bag'?

I just don't enjoy creating my own content or user created content. I have every LBP ever (even got LBP 3 for PS4 after getting it forfPS3) for every consoleand I despised playing user created stuff. I just did it for my daughter. I even skipped Mario Maker.

I feel like you are completely missing the point of this game. LBP has a functional campaign, sure. The game is designed with a campaign in mind and level editing tools to aid it. Dreams is designed the other way around, as level editing tools (game engine) first and with a campaign second. It is why it is called Dreams, the entire purpose of the game is that ppl make, share and play together. There is no "fan-fiction" and "real" developer creations here. If anything, this viewpoint goes against what the devs want the game to be.

And for what it is worth, some of these "fan-fiction" creations look miles better than the actual campaign MM have made. Like, their campaign is easily some of the most uninteresting things created in Dreams so far.

MM will probably make more content post launch. Honestly, just dont buy at launch and wait to see which creators make quality content then jump into the game. If you have podcasts you follow, or youtubers you follow, or instagrammers etc, Dreams will be the same. Find the ppl who make the content you enjoy playing. But yeah maybe wait first and see how the community gets together. You wil never be late to the party as long as quality content is being made (hopefully)

Campaign was detailed ages ago. 3 scenarios with 1 as a click adventure esque title, and the other 2 are platformers. They seem rather short so anywhere from 3- 5 hours would be my guess.

Some good stuff, community really getting to gears with the tools quicker than I would have thought. Probably cant do with community stuff but this is what trailers for the game should have been highlighting more imho, showing off more gameplay for various gameplay concepts (i know there is a trailer like this but they run through things so quckly its hard to judge the quality etc).

Either way, there is def an audience here, but I feel like these streams need to be taken up a step to the official Playstation accounts to give this game wider coverage.

Cool stuff



Some of the stuff I'm seeing in Dreams is incredible!



Last batch of codes going out now in Europe. They're going out on Wednesday in the US.

The PS5 Exists. 


I'm watching the latest stream right now, I've always been a few days late with them, this is the third I've seen so far, and honestly... my jaw is on the floor during this one, "Bug Report", "Curiosity" and "Prometheus" are all just... wow! :o

And Prometheus is just a really short demo, but the fact that it looks like the solid foundations for an FPS game in such a short period of time is crazy!

Edit: Watching even more and yeah, just... I don't even have any other reaction than "Wow".
