Game has been patched now so it can be platted, here are the patch notes, there are 4 updates.

Fixed invite only online games
Fixed Untouchable and Speed Runner trophies
Added best time star to the mission list
Fixed occasional crash when encountering a boss fight

All 4 of those were a problem for me, so glad to see it fixed so quickly!

Edit: Just loaded the game up and there is no patch available for me, still on version 1.00, seems it has been allowed in some regions but not others such as the UK, looks like we'll have to wait.

Game is good fun in co-op. Definitely needs to get its network issues sorted.

How do you join other peoples games? Besides being invited I randomly get into games with people, I would like a friend only mode, where its public but only to friends.

The game has a patch ready, it just has to be allowed by the EU PSN people. It will then allow you to have private games just with friends, invite only. At the moment though if you play online at all, randoms can just turn up and join in.

Competition time. If you're looking for a good chance at some easy PSN credit, take part in this comp. Last month, there were only about ten entrants so it was pretty amazing odds for the random name out of the hat draw. Will only take 5 minutes of your time so it's well worth doing.

I'll have to see if there's actually a way to export screenshots that I take, seeing as I can't use the Share feature. Otherwise I don't think I'd be able to enter.

Just to let you know that the EU now has the patch which fixes some things. Most notably, randomers can't join you when you set your game to 'Invite', and there is now a star next to the missions on which you have beaten the 'best time'.

Been playing some co-op with Mushi recently. Some of the bosses are horrible on co-op, but we eventually figured out how to beat Metal Woof by using the riot shield and launching shock grenades at it to stun it and deal a ton of damage.

Still a long way to the plat, but it shouldn't be too hard to get if we put the time in.

Well, turns out the local co-op is godawful. You only get a quarter of the screen even in two player mode.

Oh well, I have the plat now

Seems like they really rushed this one out, it's a shame as it has some really good ideas, with some more polish it and a bit of tlc it would have been something really special.

Here's a video of me getting 1:20 on the first level for TheSixthaxis competition, still some wiggle room to shave off a few more seconds!

Nice video!

It is a shame they didn't put a bit more time into it, feels like it had a lot more potential. Decent enough title though.
