Brickbashing Batbuddies: LEGO Batman 2

By Adam Smith on January 5th, 2012.

Perhaps Flash is in the middle but moving so fast that your puny eyes cannot detect him? FLASH CONFIRMED

LEGO Batman 2 was announced very quietly and a few months later an image appeared to semi-prove that it definitely existed. Now a press release has arrived to tell us that it’s real, although without confirming that it was previously announced. Exciting stuff but what does it all mean? I choose to believe that a game starring Batman, Robin and several other DC chaps and chapettes will be available in Summer 2012. More below.

OnLive Offers PC Games On Your Phone

By John Walker on December 8th, 2011.

I took this with my other phone. Meta.

I’m very late to the OnLive party. Cos I’ve got a PC that can play the games just fine, so, well, I’ve not yet taken the time. And then I saw news that they’ve now got it working on smart phones. I can play PC games on my phone? On my phone? And indeed I can. PC gaming is getting a lot more complicated. It’s getting a lot more complicated to know if it’s even PC gaming any more.

The Cubed Crusader: LEGO Batman 2?

By Alec Meer on November 28th, 2011.

Walls made of Lego kyrptonite everwhere, I'm betting

Hooray! A Batman game that won’t use the word ‘bitch’ every five seconds, though God only knows what all the cutsey, wordless Lego-dude chuntering really means. “Oh great Satan, dark lord of my heart, let me worship you, let me consume the souls of the innocent and strangle kittens in your honour” – that’s what Lego Commissioner Gordon’s really saying, I bet.

So, Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes has maybe been outed, at least if this oddly stark image on Bricktuts.com is to believed. (Uncropped full version of the above pic with more stuff here). If it is accurate, it also means Batman’s bringing all his special friends to the build’n'smash party – which no doubt would mean even more open, joyful silliness than the first game. Lego Superman – i.e. invincible flying man who can destroy any object – must be be a conceptual nightmare, mind.

Lego Of Tradition: On Traveller’s Tales

By John Walker on May 20th, 2011.

They have a really weird thing about bananas.

It’s a mistake, in light of Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean, to accuse Traveller’s Tales of diminishing returns with their Lego series. I keep seeing that happening. It’s wrong. If anything the problem is the stability of their consistency. I’ve had a think about why.

Holy Batinstaller (Trad): Lego Batman Demo

By Kieron Gillen on October 15th, 2008.

Many people have wondered whether Batman and Robin is a pedophilic relationship. Of course not - it's a paedophilic one. PROPER ENGLISH.

We go to sleep, and in the morning… there’s demos. Lots of demos. By which I mean, two. Firstly, there’s the 400Mb-and-a-few-bricks demo of the Lego Batman electronic videogametacular. Opinions are a little split internally over Lego Batman actually. Walker really likes it, liking its sheer size. I’m mildly liking it, mostly because it’s not as funny-for-grown-ups as Lego Star Wars. But maybe more on that in a verdict or something. Go download and make up your own mind. And here’s the launch trailer to explain this concept of Lego and Batchap to you…

Batman Is Just A Minifigure

By Jim Rossignol on September 15th, 2008.


The Lego Batman game is nearly here: September 23rd for North America, and October 31st for the rest of the world. This means trailers: BatTrailers! This one has the vehicles in, the Batmobile and the Batcycle? Something like that. There are also magnetic boots. The word on the grapevine is that it’s better than Lego Indy. Somewhat.

Brief Impressions: Lego Batman

By Alec Meer on July 28th, 2008.

So last Tuesday I wandered down to London, city of black snot, horrible musicals and formerly of Kieron’s recently deceased beard, to see Lego Batman. Well, also to watch an early screening of The Dark Knight, but I can’t really jaff off about that here. Short answer – very much agree with Big-Face Kermode, which isn’t always the case.

I didn’t get much time at all with Lego Batman, nor did I get to interview Travellers’ Tales as hoped, but I did get to play as Mister Freeze (I feel oddly ashamed that I had to Google to check whether he was a Mister or a Doctor – or, as it happens, both. I used to know such things, damnit) and The Riddler.

RPS-ish At-Ish E3: Housecleaning – Capcom,Warner

By Mathew Kumar on July 20th, 2008.

Any excuse to use this shot again, really

Now here’s something I managed to forget about completely until I was sitting in Phoenix Airport, lamenting my missed connecting flight. Capcom actually really quite like the PC. I spent a fair bit of time in the Capcom booth having my arse handed to me in Street Fighter IV by a team of people who apparently came to E3 already unstoppably good at the game, and I have to say – it’s absolutely superb, far far better than I thought it was going to be.

Dinner Dinner Dinner Dinner

By John Walker on July 14th, 2008.

As awful as the film was, it did manage one remarkable thing: Uma Thurman was hot.

More Lego Batman footage appears from E3. After the slight disappointment of Lego Indy (too similar to the Star Wars games, and missing the Force), it’s harder to know what to think about this one. Obviously hopes are high, and it’s not as if Lego Indy wasn’t lots of fun. But we want Lego Batman to be much more – the Lego game that makes us forget about the Star Wars games and get excited anew. Footage below – not a great deal that’s new, but the comic timing is lovely.

A Riddle And A Whip

By John Walker on April 18th, 2008.

We can’t resist a Lego Batman trailer! This one shows you Catwoman and Riddler jumping about on rooftops, getting up to mischief. And most of all, it shows Catwoman’s whip fighting.


Holy thanks to Gametrailers, Gametrailers.

Um, Lego Batman

By Jim Rossignol on March 19th, 2008.


So I’d already posted that trailer the other week. Hey, I’m getting old. To make up for it I took a listen to the recording I made of the producer talking at GDC. Annoyingly I couldn’t hear anything he said, only the hypnotic voice of the aging reporter who worked for Boy’s Life. Was there going to be a Man-Bat character? Possibly. What I could recall was there are going to be 18 heroes and 18 villains, which, given a quick scan of Batman’s past enemies, could include any number of freakish assailants. I’m going to bet Man-Bat is in there. I mean, Killer-Croc is already a given.

Beyond the jump: the trailer and a word on the way co-op works.
