LEGO Worlds debuts in Japan during dismal sales week

Overall video games sales in Japan took a dip this week, and the only significant new release had poor performance. Despite opening in the top 5, LEGO Worlds failed to eclipse even 12,000 sales. The only other new title to rank is a pet gam...   read

PSA: Lego City Undercover is a mess on PC

I know I shouldn't be surprised that a WB games PC release is utterly broken, but I'm an optimist at heart. I thought that having Lego City Undercover on PC would clear up some of the issues present in the Wii U original, not introduce a wh...   read

LEGO City Undercover still has some lengthy load times on Switch

Sometimes, long load times are forgivable. For games where the entire sandbox/level is on-boarded and I can screw around with it as long as I want, it's a small price to pay. I'll even lump in the infamous Metal Gear Solid 4 into that ...   read

(Update) Lego City Undercover's retail Switch port may require an install

[Update Two: WB has finally put this issue to bed by giving a final statement to Eurogamer. I don't know why they couldn't have done this to begin with, but at least we now know the final answer. "The information is listed incorrectly on th...   read

The new Lego City Undercover ports are set for early April

"Save Lego City with a partner in two-player co-op." And with that, I'm in for the upcoming PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch version of Lego City Undercover due out April 4, 2017. As much as I like TT Games' output, I just can't play...   read

You won't need to go undercover to see this Lego City Undercover trailer

Struggling to come up with a headline, you say? Why, I never! I totally had a pun lined up for this article, but then I realized that the title of Lego City Undercover hasn't changed from the Wii U version, so I had no clue how to word my p...   read

LEGO Dimensions' Sonic pack is better than some recent Sonic games

WB was pretty smart with their marketing for LEGO Dimensions. Rather than suffer the same fate as Disney Infinity, a series that had gone through three iterations into its 3.0 form before being canceled, they made the very non-WB decis...   read

Sandbox building game Lego Worlds headed to PS4, Xbox One

An official Lego take on the formula popularized by Minecraft seemed like a good idea last year when TT Games debuted Lego Worlds on Steam Early Access, and it still does today. The open-world building and exploration game hasn't had its fu...   read

It looks like the Wii U is going to be losing an exclusive next year. Confirmed via Twitter, Lego City Undercover will be heading to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and the Switch in spring 2017. Not much has been said about what this port will entail, ...   read

LEGO Dimension's Sonic the Hedgehog levels look pretty decent

Geoff Keighley's YouTube show is still trucking, and the last episode had WB producer Doug Heder on to show off the Sonic the Hedgehog level pack for LEGO Dimensions -- and surprise, it looks...not bad? Time and time again Sega has tri...   read

How will the AT&T / Warner merger change games?

In case you hadn't heard, AT&T announced Saturday that it intends to purchase Time Warner, Inc. for $85.4 billion. The deal is far from final, and if approved, wouldn't take place until sometime in 2017. It's an absolutely enormous merg...   read

LEGO Dimension's Adventure Time pack is great, other than the splitting up of Finn and Jake

I was initially kind of surprised at how WB is handling the LEGO Dimensions series, but with the Toys to Life bubble bursting for some (or exploding, in the case of Disney), it actually makes sense. They've shucked the re-release conce...   read

Lego Island is nineteen and vaporwave approved

Lego Island is 19 years old. If that little tidbit of information doesn’t make you feel either super old or wistfully nostalgic, it’s safe to assume your childhood was deprived of true happiness. Lego Island came along at the pe...   read

Tom Cruise hits LEGO Dimensions this month

A whole lot of IPs are coming to LEGO Dimensions later this month. For starters you have the predictable Harry Potter and Ghostbusters packs, but there's some wacky ones in there too. I mean, Mission Impossible -- like, ...   read

You're a Lego, Harry (again)

At one point Harry Potter was so popular that it got two LEGO games (in 2010 and 2011) that were released on just about every platform known to man, including the original DS. Now people are just complaining about Harry Potter and the ...   read

Sonic's appearance in LEGO Dimensions still looks weird

"This fall," Sonic will make his way into LEGO Dimensions, and we thankfully won't need to buy a whole new game to experience him -- just the Sonic LEGO set. And during its 25th anniversary Sonic event last weekend they showed som...   read

Review: LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Controversial opinion incoming -- I didn't think The Force Awakens was the best Star Wars. I know, I know. Maybe it isn't as controversial to say as it was back in December, but anyone who sees it is seemingly contractually obligated t...   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
