Hey look, another Comic-Con announcement! This time, it's some screenshots and a video for the story side of LEGO Universe. They probably made LEGO comics at some point, and I'm sure many a San Diego Comic-Con attendee dig massively multiplayer online games, so it's all on the level.
Traditionally, I've always been a not-MMO guy. And yet, I find LEGO Universe to be quite a lot of fun for what it is. Maybe that's because the cute aesthetics cover the seedy addiction-garnering underbelly of the genre in ways similar titles are unable to. Maybe not.
One thing is for absolute certain, though -- the Minifigs in LEGO Universe have brilliant, totally manly names.
