LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens demo is out now

I have not watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but I am told this new LEGO game, which is out in a couple of weeks, is basically a shot-for-shot recreation of the film according to the new trailer. And it's out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One,...   read

LEGO Dimensions is getting Goonies, Sonic, Adventure Time, and Tom Cruise

So those rumors were correct. Like, spot-on, entirely correct. WB has announced today that LEGO Dimensions, by way of new add-on packs, will be getting a ton of new IPs. The lengthy list includes Nu Ghostbusters, Adventure Time, Mission Imp...   read

Rumor: LEGO Dimensions will host Harry Potter, Gremlins, Sonic, Goonies, and possibly Tom Cruise

LEGO Dimensions was a surprisingly fun little action game, and WB can certainly flex that license to get a ton of IPs crammed in (Simpsons, Wizard of Oz, even Atari arcade games). That might also be the case for the sequel according to Pres...   read

Catch phrase! Reinhardt's Overwatch hammer is just as mighty in real life

As I said in my review, one of my favorite parts of Overwatch is not just the character designs, but the designs in general. The weapons are incredibly detailed, and Reinhardt's Rocket Hammer has already garnered quite the fanbase. The...   read

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

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 Marvel's Avengers
  Watch Video 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.   read
