Feature: Recky with the good hair

Steam Summer Sale recommendations: 2018 edition!

The old quote is wrong: neither death nor taxes are, it seems to me, as terrifyingly certain as the Steam Summer Sale. Yes, once more we can add to the heap that is our backlog by buying games for, what, five quid, on average? But there are so many to choose from that it's easy to get flustered, so who better than the staff of…

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 KONK!ing to November

Those dastardly villains at TT Games have again turned their plasticising ray on the supermen of the Marvel universe, announcing an intent to trap these plasticmen in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 [official site] later this year. Once again, it'll bring minimen fighting minimonsties in BAM! BIF! POW! action across time and space with jokes and all that. Our resident cackling villain John really dug…

Feature: Marvel-less

Assemble: The Marvel Gaming Universe

First published as part of our Supporter Program, this feature explores the possibilities of a Marvel Gaming Universe. There is no mention of a Telltale episodic adventure. If you were to draw a Venn Diagram showing the overlap between superhero comic book fans and people who like to play computer games, it would look a lot like Pacman with his jaws wired shut. That makes…

Feature: Grand Theft Duplo

Lego Marvel Super Heroes review

Lego Marvel Super Heroes is out in the States, but has then horribly drowned in the oceans, seemingly not released in Europe until the 15th November. Quite why Warner would go to such lengths to screw up the release of such an excellent game we're not sure. We've asked. I've been playing it non-stop for days, and despite being told I'm only 20% of the…

What’s Going On With Lego Marvel’s Mess Of A Release?

If you're in the futuristic megacities of Americaland, you'll likely know that you can buy and play Lego Marvel Super Heroes on Steam right now. You've been able to for a week or so. If you're in, say, Britain, you may not know that you too can't. Except, until recently, you could buy it! Just not play it. It's been fixed now, but for a…

Feature: Marvel At This

Agents of Smile: An Hour(ish) With Lego Marvel Heroes

Mr Fantastic, most boring of all Marvel superheroes, has just turned into an enormous pair of bolt cutters in order to let Captain America through. Not so boring now eh, Reed? The Hulk is tidying up New York with a dustpan and brush. Iron Man is worried that all of this is cutting into his hot tub time. Controlling Spider-Man is just like I've wished…

Also From EGX: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Talk

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is pretty much one of those games we can't help getting excited about. LEGO Spider-Man! LEGO The Hulk! That's the stuff. Anyway, some folk talked about it at the Eurogamer Expo, which made for some entertaining watching. Join in with that, below. The game is due on 18th October for North America, and 15th November in the UK and Europe, which…

Cameo Man: Lego Marvel Super Heroes

The headline may well give away the identity of the latest addition to the Lego Marvel Super Heroes roster but I'm not going to tell you who it is here. The video below explains all and, in its gleeful enthusiasm, makes the game seem like one of the most enticing prospects on the release horizon. I've been playing lots of Saints Row IV recently and,…

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

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…

Meet The Bigfigs: Lego Marvel Super Heroes

LEGO people are so tiny! Sometimes I like to spread some out on the floor, stretch to my full height of five foot and a bit, then tower above them like a powerful overlord. The delusion of grandeur ends when I accidentally step on one and end up cured in a foetal position, clutching the sole of my foot, which LEGO tears like bullets bursting…

Stark Realties: Lego Marvel Super Heroes

When I hear an accent I recognise from my everyday bar-crawling life in a dev diary, I feel like we've really made it, us Brits. The chap in the video below is the 'Assisstant (sic) Director' of Lego Marvel Super Heroes, which effectively means that Britain has now taken the best of Denmark and America, and made those things its own. He's a cultural conqueror…

OMG LEGO Marvel Game Is A Thing Yes Now Please YES!

STOP EVERYTHING. I'm in the middle of writing a feature about something or other but who cares because! BECAUSE! LEGO Marvel Super Heroes! Oh good heavens, it's my worlds all coming together in a thousand Christmasses. The infinite supply of utterly excellent Lego games from Traveller's Tales collides with the superheroics from the House Of Ideas, and if it isn't the best game ever I'm…
