Doom’s Doom Ray Of Doom! LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

By John Walker on August 21st, 2013 at 2:30 pm.

OH MY GOODNESS I AM GOING TO GET TO BE LEGO SPIDER-MAN.

Ever since my days running up and down the playground on all fours, aged 5, I have so desperately needed to be Spider-Man. But the vidjagames of him have never captured his personality for me, their seeming to have been very ahead of the books by giving him a personality more like Doc Oc’s than the chipper, cheery scoundrel I endlessly wish I were. Who better to capture his silly side than TT Games (are they really called that now?)? None better. That’s who. He’s one of eighty-nine billion Marvel characters lined up to appear in this Autumn’s LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, and now there’s a trailer revealing that Dr Doom shall be working alongside Loki to be their undoing.

Superbly aping the recent Avengers movie, and spinning things off in its own unique directions, I’m on my spider-knees praying that this be one of their great games, and not one of their Indiana Jones games. Enjoy this:

It’s due to be with us on the 18th October, and if it’s not brilliant I’m going to explode.

        Gonna have to watch it again now…
        Edit: Oh yeah! 1:24 for squirrel-chucking action :D

        • Lex says:

          Wherever there is Doom there is Squirrel Girl to throw deadly squirrels at him to stop his evil plans :D
          Still missing some X-23 and Rescue love through.

    Dialogue killed the Lego games’ fun

      Mmm-hmm.

      The only one I’ve played with voice acting has been Lego Lord of the Rings, which is kind of an odd example because it just takes the ‘voice acting’ wholesale from the movies. It’s fine, and I think it would be rather difficult to convey much of the story of Lord of the Rings without dialogue.

      That’s almost certainly why they put the voice acting in. Without any sort of dialogue, I think it became difficult to build much of a plot. Up until Lego Batman, all of the games were retelling well know properties, but Lego Batman had an original(ish) story. It kind of suffered from any sort of coherence because it was conveyed wordlessly.

      I’m not saying it can’t be done, but, I guess I’m fine with the voice acting, it doesn’t really detract from anything.

      • Sparkasaurusmex says:

        Oh they were so much better without voices. They did a fine job of moving the plot. We don’t need Kafka here, just simple plots. Yeah, it’s easier with a satire of a known movie, but c’mon a super hero plot? Do you really need dialogue to follow it? Seriously it was way better when they were like silent films and sillier. Granted Lego LOTR does get sort of silly, but it is much less of a parody than it would have been if it used the older “no dialog” design of previous Lego games.

      Now, if only he was carrying around a stuffed toy as a “herald”.

    WOooooo Galactus!

    Did you ever play the “Ultimate Spider-Man” game? My mixed feelings on the Ultimates Universe aside it was pretty entertaining.

    Okay, occasionally extremely flipping frustrating, but it managed to capture the Smart-Alec Parker better than most of the other games I felt.

    Oh, and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was pretty good about it too, come to think of it.

    I liked lego indy…

    • Lex says:

      The first one was awesome … I miss the picking up shovels and books to solve things in the newer games. Also, catching women with the whip \o/

    I wonder how exactly countless and endless their heroes and enemies are…

  14. Sparkasaurusmex says:

    I just wish there was some consequence to death in these games.

    • Lex says:

      It does … one time in … I think it was Batman 2 or 1… I died so much in one level that I didn’t get the “true hero” thingy on first try ;)

  15. Highstorm says:

    I imagine Magneto is going to be extremely underpowered in this game.

    When I was little my 2 friends and I played superheros and we were always Superman, Batman and Spider-man. Whoever got to be Spidey (I can’t recall on what basis we decided that) got the short straw since he couldn’t fly, while the other two could.

    In retrospect we probably hadn’t quite grasped everything about Batman’s power-set OR comic continuity…
