Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens actually has a reasonable season pass

Our disdain for season passes is well-documented around here. Too many publishers look to turn $60 worth of revenue into $100 by way of a $40 mystery season pass. We rarely know how the base game will end up, but consumers are routinely ask...   read

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens looks better than expected

Well, hey, it's nice to have footage to put to Brett's words about Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Having seen the movie three times now (once in a theater in an eye-melting front-row seat; again in a different theater at a proper viewi...   read

There's a big Lego game sale on PlayStation Network

My strategy for Lego titles has been to hold off as best I can until they inevitably hit super-low prices. It usually doesn't take long, and if I get bored with the title or otherwise regret the purchase, that's fine -- I'm not out much mon...   read

LEGO Dimensions almost had Mortal Kombat as a minigame

I'm old enough to remember when Hillary Clinton wanted to ban Mortal Kombat [do you feel OLD yet!?]. It was a funny, silly time, when people were scared of video games. Other than Leeland Yee, it's been a relatively unventful past decade wh...   read

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens has three improvements to the Lego formula

It's easy to forget that a fair amount of iteration has come to the Lego video game series over the past decade. All the titles -- there are upward of 20 now -- are similar in that they're whimsical, lighthearted takes on popular subje...   read

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a thing that's happening

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 announce the gam...   read

Review: LEGO Marvel's Avengers

Review: LEGO Dimensions

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 than the LEGO&...   read

'You Wouldn't Know' is the third Portal song by Jonathan Coulton

This LEGO rendition of Hyrule Castle is a work of art

Lego Dimensions Scooby Doo looks delightfully campy

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. I mean, this i...   read
