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.
