LEGO DC Super-Villains turns baddies good

Seeing DC's superheroes are as bad as villains these days, at least going by their movies, it's perhaps no surprise that the villains are becoming heroes. Warner Bros today announced LEGO DC Super-Villains, the latest in the fight-o-build-a-platformer series from TT Games, and it'll see baddies becoming goodies to save the day. We'll get to build our own custom villain to lead the adventure, and…

Feature: Listen to these dads

Podcast: What do we play with our kids?

The dadification of games continues. So we’re going full Dad this week on the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, as we’ve been asked to talk about the games we play with our children. Alec’s daughter is excited by the unlockable characters in Rayman Legends (and she’s also strangely fascinated by Battletech). John’s son is a bit younger and likes to watch his dad diving…

LEGO Incredibles on the way? Not so much of a stretch

The success of the LEGO games and films as a vehicle for legitimately good family comedy continues to be one of geekdom's most pleasantly inexplicable surprises. The LEGO Batman film had no right being so funny (or self-aware), and the LEGO Star Wars games even managed to make the prequel trilogy palatable. As such, pairing Pixar's knack for visual comedy and TT Games' consistently solid…

Clickuorice Allsorts: Cute Subnautica Lego pitches

A reader sent me some links to really well-done Subnautica Lego pitches on the Lego Ideas forum so I wanted to share them! Here's Survivors of the Degasi and Exploring the Safe Shallows. The Lego Ideas forum lets people pitch ideas for sets that they want Lego to convert into real products. You need 10,000 supporters for a set to qualify for review and these…

LEGO Worlds blasting off to vintage Space in first DLC

LEGO's classic Space set is coming to the Minecraftbut LEGO Worlds [official site] in its first themed DLC pack. To some, the sight of that little spacecar and the honking great spaceship might inspire nostalgic joy. Myself, I am reminded that the greatest shame of my childhood was stealing a LEGOman from a family friend because LEGO was a once-a-year birthday treat and I ached…

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…

LEGO City Undercover busts into PC

While the LEGO games kept bouncing along merrily with their adventures based on movies and comic books, one interesting one skipped PC. Released on Wii U in 2013, LEGO City Undercover [official site] was an open-world LEGO 'em up with an original (well, non-licensed) story styled after silly cop action movies. Grand Theft Auto meets the Sabotage video but child-friendly. You can see for yourself,…

Bricky bobbies: LEGO City Undercover coming to PC

LEGO City Undercover [official site] is finally on its way to PC, having been banged up on Nintendo's Wii U since 2013. It's the LEGO game I've wanted most in yonks, an open-world 'Grand Theft Auto for kiddywinkles' sort of dealio parodying '70s cop movies and TV shows. Expect gangs of punks, big boxes of donuts, deep cop funk, and villains with names like Rex…

Feature: Avengers Disassemble

Lego Marvel’s Avengers review

Something very odd is going on at Traveller’s Tales. I’m not sure how, but in Lego Marvel's Avengers [official site] they’ve managed to release a game that actively goes out of its way to hide everything good about it. So much so that it was only after hours of snoring through its dull, phoned in story mode that I discovered, behind a completely obscure and…

LEGO Minifigures Online Release, Ditches F2P Model

LEGO Worlds is looking like it'll become the brick 'em up folks have been asking for since 1873, with the grand vision of letting folks slap down plastic bricks with their pals and play silly beggars to their hearts' content. LEGO Minifigures Online [official site] is, well, one of the games that made the long wait for LEGO Worlds so frustrating. Made by Funcom, LEGO…

Roar! LEGO Jurassic World Stomping Around PC

Jurassic World is now stomping around cinemas, and LEGO Jurassic World [official site] is stomping around PC too (though our review will be roaring through here later). For those who don't know, it's a kid-friendly amalgamation of Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, and the most recent Jurassic World. (You knew it was going to be there. Just look at the…

Minecraftbut LEGO: LEGO Worlds Hits Steam Early Access

"Minecraft but with LEGO" is an idea that must have been raised a hundred thousand times, everywhere from playgrounds to board rooms. It's finally happened. With remarkably little fanfare, Warner Bros. yesterday both announced and launched LEGO Worlds [official site]. Well, launched onto Steam Early Access. Made by the LEGO game folks at TT Games, it's a procedurally-generated open-world explore-o-build 'em up with terraforming and…

Lego Jurassic World Wants You To Be The Dinos

Knowing full well that playing through a Lego version of Jurassic World isn’t actually the most exciting part of Lego Jurassic World [official site], Travellers Tales has front loaded the latest trailer with one of the most iconic scenes from Jurassic Park. The whole film, along with The Lost World, Jurassic Park III and, yes, Jurassic World, are recreated in miniature plastic for you to…

Jeff Goldbrick: Lego Jurassic World

Don't let the name fool you. Lego Jurassic World [official site] may be tied to the similarly titled Big Summer Sequel for marketing purposes, but it covers the previous films in the Jurassic series as well. That means Lego Attenborough, Lego Laura Dern, Lego Sam Neill and Lego Annoying Kids. It also means Lego Goldblum. There will also be dinosaurs, as the trailer below demonstrates.

LEGO Duo: Avengers & Jurassic World Announced

The simultaneous announcement of two new LEGO games makes me suddenly pained that they don't let you mix-and-match parts from different games in the way one can with real LEGO [possibly the only capitalised brand name I'll respect -ed.]. Obviously I'll want to take the Black Widow from LEGO Marvel's Avengers over into LEGO Jurassic World to zap raptors with her Widow's Sting, and yes…

Lego Batman 3 Launches, Heads For Outer Space

And in "opportunities to teach your child more about vigilante justice using playthings they know and love" news, Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham launched yesterday - you can take it for a spin with a free demo. I confess I've not kept up with all the recent Lego releases. At this point it feels less like a franchise and more of a brick-based pop culture…

Spruce Bruce: Lego Batman 3 – Beyond Gotham

If I decide to journey beyond Manchester of a weekend, I might wander as far as Sheffield or Leeds. Maybe a village pub if I'm in the mood for something a little more quaint. Occasionally, I'm even tempted to heard north, across the border into Scotland. Chances are, once I get beyond the front door of my flat, I'll land in a local drinking haunt…

Do Not Swallow: LEGO Minifigures Online Enters Open Beta

If you haven't already twigged that LEGO Minifigures Online was not made with you in mind, the account registration asking for your parent's e-mail address should clue you in. Funcom's free-to-play MMORPG is definitely for the little'uns, but I'll understand if grown-ups fancy a peek. It is LEGO, after all. The game launched into open beta yesterday, so wander on over to the official site…
