A Riddle And A Whip

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

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.

Lego Batman Trailer

I saw this game being played at GDC and it was completely charming. I love that you can play through the campaign as the cute little villains.

Quickly, to the BatTrailers!

To The Brickmobile: New LEGO Batman Screens

Frankly, we know what we’re in for with Lego Indiana Jones – Lucasarts property, swinging with the whip, digging with the spade, shooting with the gun, and no damned Nazis. It’s a natural sequel to Lego Star Wars. Lego Batman, though – there’s a lot more to play with there. Bats’ supervillains offer a little more breadth than Star Wars’ guns’n’Force line-up, plus, not being based directly on a film series, it’s free to tell its own stories in its own gloriously unhinged environments. Brand new screens are beneath the cut.

Games For 2008: Lego Batman / Indiana Jones

See in that cage over there? Those are our hearts. Yours too, probably. Traveller’s Tales have captured them, probably for nefarious purposes.

TT seem to somehow have time to make two games at once, when we know we’d be swimming around in the vast pools of money Warner just paid to acquire the company. £100 million. Blimey.

There’s a limit to how many times you can reel out the same idea before people start to get cynical. Fortunately, for the Lego series, there’s probably about another four hundred before they’re in trouble. What’s even better is that TT seem to have picked the two films anyone could have hoped to see recreated in Legoey gaming form: Indiana Jones and Batman.

So here’s what we know about each new game:

Holey Plastic Blocks

It’s the Lego Batman trailer!

Thanks, Gametrailers – unlike criminals, you are not a cowardly and superstitious lot.

Not giving much away, eh? That’s The Batman for you though – all shadowy and mysterious, keeps his cards close to his impeccably-toned chest’n’all. And, of course, there probably isn’t all that much to give away anyway. We can guess pretty much what to expect from this – punch, build, jump, grapple-hook, giggle. Much as I’m tickled by the concept, I think I need to see something that proves this is a little more than Lego Star Wars but with frowning before I get excited – especially with the similarly punch’n’grappley Lego Indiana Jones also on the toy-to-game horizon.
