Underneath my gruff exterior beats the heart of a kid obsessed with LEGO. Even now, if I see some of those little bricks, I drop what I'm doing, and start building, ignoring whoever else is in the room. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that I'm pretty excited for LEGO City: Undercover, which drops this week along with a whole bunch of other games.
Set in an open world and story-based, it sounds like my cup of tea, especially since my favorite LEGO game has to be LEGO Batman 2. And come on, the hero is called Chaise McCain, the name I wish I was now blessed with.
Along with the tiny brick goodness, a slew of other games launch this week. Gears of War: Judgement is a thing, and will undoubtedly feature shooting and steroids; fighting giant monsters refuses to go out of style in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate; The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct appears, and still looks terrible; and the Wii U gets a Need for Speed game. All this a more falls from the skies this week.
