Just in case you were worried that LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens wouldn't have a Season Pass, WB confirmed it this morning. If you spring for the deluxe edition of the game though, coming this June, you'll gain acces...
Because of course it is
In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, the next entry in Warner Bros. and TT Games' popular LEGO video game series is based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
While the companies presumably would have liked to a...
WB always finds out, bro
The MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) is intimidating, to say the least. In addition to all of the feature films there's also official tie-in comics, one-shot short films, multiple sequels that set up sequels, and now, eight separate television shows with multiple seasons across two networks.
If you haven't been at least following the movies, LEGO Marvel's Avengers probably isn't for you.
20 characters and a level
Lego Marvel's Avengers is coming to a bunch of a platforms on January 26, 2016, but folks who pick up either the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 version will have a head start in terms of characters. And if you're anything lik...
But I'll still wait for a sale
Now that TT Games has begun showing more locations and characters in Lego Marvel's Avengers, I'm starting to come around.
Officially, the open-world locales are Asgard, Barton Farm, Malibu, New York City, "S.H.I.E.L.D. Base E...
I see more Jurassic films in the future
Say what you will about the LEGO games, but they sell. Evidently WB has recently revealed that LEGO Jurassic World has sold over four million copies. I'd wager that the massive one billion plus success of the f...
An expensive, but fun hobby
As I've talked about in the past, I'm usually the go-to person for the toys-to-life genre. I'm a kid at heart, and occasionally, I can enjoy a silly kids movie for the fun of it. No series has encapsulated that silliness more...
And comes out very soon
What? You didn't think that all five of Microsoft's Xbox One holiday bundles were going to come packed with gallons of blood, did you? We have to take a minute to think about the kids. The kids!
As a quick detour from the lik...
From LEGO Dimensions
The reveal of LEGO Dimensions earlier this year was kind of bizarre. How can Traveller's Tales get all those different licenses? Jurassic Park, Scooby Doo, Batman, and Portal 2? It's like every kid's toy chest in video game f...
The sheer number is staggering
While it's true that LEGO Dimensions needs a number of add-ons to truly access all 14 upcoming worlds, the sheer amount of properties on offer is staggering. It's also a bit more interesting on paper compared to other to...
Complete with characters on the scene
It's crazy to think how far people have come in the arena of LEGO construction. As a kid I kind of just make these straight towers, that I'd often use as swords until they slowly broke apart (Lincoln Logs for life). Now, peo...
Where are you? In a hella-expensive game
I have no idea what to expect with LEGO Dimensions. So far it seems like a "me-too" type situation, and hot damn, the add-ons look expensive as hell. But of course, the properties involved (14 in all so far) are just insane....
Top ten continues to look samey
There weren't a ton of surprises this month for the July NPD report. Even though Splatoon players might be a little sad their beloved paint shooter is no longer in the top ten, you gotta admit, it had a good run with the big ...
Seeking merger, acquisition, or anything
Norwegian developer Funcom is seemingly in financial peril after its free-to-play turned pay-to-play game Lego Minifigures Online performed worse than expected. The company doesn't expect revenues from the Lego ...
LEGO Marvel's Avengers will miss its fall 2015 release and instead come to North America on January 26 and Europe on January 29. Some real missed holiday sales opportunity there, looks like, especially with it coming to every...
Bowties in custard and whatnot
I totally forgot LEGO Dimensions was happening, but now that I see it again… holy crap it actually looks good. The series has it all: Batman, Back to the Future, and now all thirteen Doctors from Doctor Who as well.
Hold on to your butts
Another year, another beloved franchise gets the LEGO treatment. This year, blocks and dinosaurs come together in LEGO Jurassic World, a compilation of games spanning the entire Jurassic Park film franchise. Released simultan...
Playing with bricks
The Cleveland Cavaliers jumped the gun a bit last night when they unleashed an avalanche of bricks, because Lego Jurassic Park didn't actually release until today. Bad basketball aside, Traveller's Tales' latest game lo...
Okay, that was great
With LEGO Jurassic World on my mind, I had forgotten that TT Games also has LEGO Marvel's Avengers lined up for this year. It's not releasing until winter, but here's a trailer ahead of E3.
Save for a split-second shot of Ul...
Minecraft competitor? Don't get cocky
Someone think about the children! Like my own personal brand, LEGO is a family-friendly, name-stealing company. And so the open-ended, Minecraft-like builder LEGO Worlds has some problem what with immature idiots' propensity ...
(On, ugh, Steam Early Access)
Warner Bros. and TT Games have launched LEGO Worlds -- an open-ended building game with procedurally-generated worlds, rideable creatures, and vehicles -- on Steam Early Access today for $14.99. It's expected to remain there ...
Look, Jurassic Park people. Just because you have this wrapped up in a Lego veneer doesn't mean the outcome's going to be any different. We've all seen the movies. Why should we expect vicious dinosaurs won't attack this time?
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me a third time, and I never should've watched Jurassic Park III.
Walk the dinosaur
Jurassic World opens on Friday, June 12. I'm skeptical, but I'll probably wind up seeing it anyway for the trained raptors. TT Games' LEGO Jurassic World, which spans the four films, releases the same day for all major conso...
And a partridge in a pear tree
LEGO Dimensions is a game we all know is going to be absolutely huge. It's little, way too expensive LEGO with Disney Infinity glued on to it, and if that doesn’t print money I don’t know what will. Despite that, ...
LEGO's answer to Skylanders or amiibo
[Update: Since we posted this story LEGO has released an official trailer as well as announced a 27 September release date. The game is coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.]
The first images...
The new trailer for LEGO Jurassic World really knows how to get me super pumped for a Jurassic Park game. It features several scenes from the 1993 movie animated in the LEGO style. Everything from the T. Rex chase scene, to ...
"Imagine playing as the ominous LEGO T. rex, roaming the grounds of Isla Nublar, smashing LEGO bricks and battling with other dinosaurs -- this game is bound to bring out the kid in all of us," says TT Games managing direc...
If it's anything like Marvel Super Heroes, I'm in
This latest round of LEGO games will do wonders for Brett's Gamerscore. Several titles are releasing in 2015, including LEGO Jurassic World, which hits in June and spans all four films, and LEGO Marvel's Avengers, which is ou...
Don’t let the name fool you -- this is by no means a Batman game. The Dark Knight may grace the box, but underneath its bat-enameled shell lies a Justice League game at heart. A menagerie of DC heroes and villains combi...
Time well spent
I was recently given a tiny Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lego set. 47 pieces. I put it together in no time. Michelangelo with a little cart thing. It was simple, but I loved it. You know; that feeling you get when y...
