Moon Bruce: Lego Batman 3 – Beyond Gotham

I'm always slightly disappointed when a new Lego game announcement arrives and it doesn't involve a fresh license. Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham looks like a Justice League game rather than a simple spot of the moody Bruces, but I can't help but feel something other than superheroes would make a pleasant change. Lego Hammer Horror maybe, or Lego Warhammer. It probably doesn't help that…

Lego The Hobbit review

Lego The Hobbit could simply be called ‘There’ because there ain’t no ‘Back Again’. Lacking the narrative content that will form the final third of the swollen and gaseous film trilogy, this is a perfectly acceptable entry in Traveller’s Tales’ Lego franchise but the release comes at an odd time. The disappointing Lego Movie Videogame is barely out of diapers and Smaug has finished his…

There And Block Again: Lego – The Hobbit

Traveller's Tales have announced that their next game will not be Lego: Doctor Who by announcing that their next game will be Lego: The Hobbit. Due in Spring of next year, the game will cover the events of the first two Hobbit games FILMS (edited to fix idiocy), which means about sixteen hours of playtime will take place in Goblin Town and the barrel sequence…

Bust Into Lego Minfigures Online’s Closed Beta

As a casual observer of the Lego phenomenon, I am continually baffled by the games. I don't particularly enjoy the LEGO: Pop Culture Thing third-person smash-em-ups, as I mostly want a creative restructuring of things (though John thinks it's because I'm made of hate. I assure you the two are not related). Smashing and rebuilding without any control just doesn't fit into my Lego universe,…

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,…

Feature: Massively Multiplayer Minifigs

First Look: Lego Minifigures Online

Lego Minifigures Online is a functional title. This is a game in which tiny Lego humanoids have adventures together, in colourful worlds full of loot, quests and monsters. Funcom have a great deal of experience in the genre, but there will almost certainly be less decapitations and horrific conspiracies than in their previous massively multiplayer efforts. At a crowded and explosion-happy Gamescom, the sight of…

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…

The One Who Blocks: Great LEGO: Breaking Bad Fanfilm

If the LEGO: [Insert Popular Culture Icon] series has been a bit too cute for you, then animator Brian Anderson has the perfect solution. Solution as in chemistry. Chemistry as in a bit of the plot of Breaking Bad. Breaking Bad as in he's made a brilliant animation that shows just what BB would look like if Traveller's Tales crammed it into their giant LEGO…

FTL Lego FTW

Things that would happen in the best of all possible worlds: - Cats would empty their own litter trays - Israel and Palestine would mutually agree "screw it, let's have a fancy dress party instead" - People would read the article before commenting - McVities would bring back Marmite-flavoured Mini Cheddars - LEGO approves and manufactures this proposed FTL building set

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…

Box News: Portal Legos, Limbo Special Edition

Welcome to RPS' first (and probably only) edition of Box News, an attempt at providing fair and balanced coverage of that most marginalized of objects in this digital age - the box - on the first day to conveniently feature more than one box-based news item in 437 years. On today's show, we'll be bringing you up-to-the-minute analysis of the developing Portal Lego set situation…

Go Minifigure: Funcom To Work On Lego MMO

The Secret World will be ready to reveal all of its enigmas soon enough but Funcom are already looking to the future, announcing that they are to begin work on another MMO. ...the company has signed a license agreement with the LEGO Group, one of the world’s most successful manufacturers of play materials, to develop a massively multiplayer online game based on the hugely popular…

Lego Batman 2’s Dynamic Demo

No signal shone in the sky to announce the presence of a PC demo for Lego Batman 2 but I found it anyway, lurking over at the official website. The portion contained is the beginning of the game which means there's no chance to explore the Gotham hub, just a brick-bopping jaunt through the Man of the Year ceremony, where Bruce Wayne beats "some bald…

Legollum, Legothmog, Legolas: Lego LOTR Confirmed

This is no surprise but confirmation comes that Lego Lord of the Rings will be released in the Autumnal phase of 2012. I was quite disconcerted when the Joker started talking in a video for the next Lego Batman, which looks quite superb, but the trailer for Lego of That Ring goes even further, re-enacting scenes from the film and using the dialogue right in…

Lego League – Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

All the heroes and villains are coming out to play in the cumbersomely titled Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, or at least a great deal of the heroes and villains created or legally owned by one major comic book publisher. I'd go through the trailer and try to identify as many as I can but I'm already confused as to whether there are several…

Just Lego: Lego Minecraft Is A Real Thing

Yes, it's real and it can be pre-ordered here for $34.99/£34.99. Lego Minecraft goes on sale in "selected" Lego shops in the summer, and gives you a chunk of the world to play with. The Minecraft range of Lego (and that's just Lego, LEGO) will feature Steve and a creeper, as well your standard world building blocks from the game - stone, sand, wood, and…

Legolas At last: Lego Lord Of The Rings

While this isn't actually a game announcement as such, the confirmation that next summer is the summer of Lego Lord Of The Rings does rather suggest that there will be a Lego LOTR game. I'll be looking forward to Lego Ents, Lego Balrog, Lego Orks, Lego Eye Of Mordor, and, of course, Legolas. It also strikes me that the minifigs will need to be extra-mini…

Beta Blockers: Minecraft Turns Lego

You know how Minecraft is a bit like the world's biggest and most elaborate Lego set? Except here you start with more green and brown blocks than even Simon Lego himself owns. Well, monolithic megacorp, Mojang, are discussing a deal with the Danish blockmasters to release official Minecraft Lego. They are only next door to the Swedish devs, after all. The news comes via Mojang…
