The Lego Wish-Granter

Whoa, the backstory for the Lego Universe MMO is the same as the plot for Roadside Picnic. It's (roughly) true! Check out the new trailer, below. John is on this one, by the way, so we should have a review coming up later in the month. Healing notwithstanding. I had a play too and, despite some generic MMO elements, it's got a lot of intriguing…

Oh, And Lego Universe

One of the last of the PC showings from E3 that we've got around to taking a glance are those for Lego Universe. I've posted the lovely cinematic and some developer-chatter captured by GameTrailers below. I think it gives you a fairly good idea of what this is going to be. It's not exactly throwing off the familiar mantle of how MMOs doing things -…

Wizard! Lego Harry Potter Trailer

Look, right, I'm just going to say it: I don't much like Harry Potter. The books, I mean. I'm sure Harry's just lovely. But the whole thing has never done anything for me. I'm not boasting - how tiresome people are who think they're clever for not liking something popular. I'm missing out. (Although I can always re-read His Dark Materials, I suppose.) But still.…

Lego Star Wars III: Clone Wars Announced

You thought they'd run out of Star Wars films to make Lego games about, right? Wrong. Now the TV series, Clone Wars, is to receive the plastic man treatment. I think it's tempting to start rolling eyes at the prospect of another Lego game. The Lego Indies have been a bit disappointing, and the prospect of Lego Harry Potter: Years 1–4 may not fill everyone's…

CES Lego Universe Enormo-Footage

You're unlikely to have missed that CES was going on last week, and it coughed up a few gaming bits and pieces. One of these was a demo of the rather shiny-looking Lego Universe. The all-seeing record-o-brain of GameTrailers was there, and it delivered the five walkthrough videos you can see posted below. It shows the character creation, glimpses of the world, the importation of…

Lego Universe Gallery

These still aren't properly in-game, but they're nevertheless a lovely target for Lego Universe to aim for. Apparently the idea of "build" underlies this latest release of images and, according to LEGO themselves, it "represents the power of building and customization that is core to the LEGO Universe experience." And furthermore "players will be able to build with an abundant supply of virtual bricks. And…

Lego Universe: First Images

The official Lego Universe site has some images of the game "in action". They all look at little concept-y to me, but if it's a rough approximation of what we can expect from the game then I'm interested. Gleaning what little we can from this shots, we can see that it's going to have a Lego minifig spin on the traditional avatar creation and customisation,…

Lego Universe: Show us the game!

The most recent Lego Universe video is a "behind-the-scenes" documentary advert which shows tantalising glimpse of the game, without actually giving us anything concrete. It's largely annoying PR fluff. Honestly, it's awesome that they're having fun making the game and everything, but the rest of the world just wants to see it running! Show us the footage! Clickwards for the video.

LEGO Universe Details

Reuters have revealed some of the first details on the LEGO Universe MMO, having talked to project director Mark William Hansen. From what we've managed to gather from this article and early discussion of the project at GDC, this could be the first children's MMO with mass appeal. Crucial to its success will be getting this bit right: Most social online worlds have their own…

Builders of the Lost Ark

Look! More Lego Indiana Jones footage! Including the giant boulder! Gametrailers. I don't hate these guys. So far, so Lego Star Wars - I was hoping there'd be a little more focus on controlling solely Indy, as he's the reason we're all signed up for this, but the character-swapping mechanic seems as prevalent as ever - but it sure is pretty and adventuresome. Plus, I…

Lego Portal

No, not some incredible hybrid game announcement, but an awesome piece of Lego modeling over on Brickshelf. Today, incidentally, is Boxing Day, or the UK's official "Day After Christmas Day". It is traditionally the day that gamers spend the entire day locked in a room playing something awesome. (To be fair, we spent most of yesterday playing videogames too, but hey.) If gaming were a…

Making Of: Lego Star Wars

[Lego Star Wars remains one of the most quietly radical yet enormously successful games of recent years. I've done more than one post mortem on it too. Here's a different one I did over at the Escapist. In fact, I think Jim's done at least one too. Anyway, as always, this one originated back in PC Format. The interview was performed well before the second…

Future Lego Games I Want To See

Dear Traveller's Tales, For your to-do list: Lego Alien Trilogy Lego The Thing Lego Bridge Over The River Kwai Lego When Harry Met Sally Lego A Night To Remember Lego Shadowlands Lego Le Chagrin Et La Pitié And not Lego The Lord Of The Rings which you'll obviously end up doing. (Lego Alien by Arvo of Brickshelf)

Lego Nazis

I seem to recall having a conversation with someone (I believe it was John Smith, executive producer of Lego Star Wars) about whether it would be appropriate to have Lego Nazis. It seems that's no longer a concern.
