Dismantled: Lego Universe Closing

An increasing number of massively multiplayer games are offering free entry into their worlds but it stands to reason that, more often or not, gangs of salesman will be roaming inside, or at the very least there will be equivalent of concession stands littered about the place, stocked with pricey but powerful socks and the like. Lego Universe began offering a free trial back in…

Bricking It: Lego Universe Getting Free Trial

Whenever another MMO announces that it's changing to a free to play subscription model, the sound of rapid intakes of breath can be heard throughout corridors of Castle Shotgun like some panicked zephyr. We just can't believe it. There's an alternate reality out there where all MMORPGs are free to play and it's trying to break into ours. Hot on the heels of the City…

Lego Universe’s Space Ninjas Unmasked

Despite feeling a little lukewarm towards the release-month accomplishments of Lego Universe, we're still keen to keep an eye on it. And the game - which was fairly small on release - is expanding. The latest reveal shows off Crux Prime, which shows skeleton minfigs mining on asteroids, and which reportedly contains some kind of martial arts monastery where players can learn "Spinjitzu". This is,…

Wormhole Brief: Jumpgate Lawsuit

Oh dear, it seems that the big old delay on the release of Jumpgate Evolution isn't simply down to putting on a few more layers of polish. IncGamers spotted that Codemasters are suing developers NetDevil, and parent company Gazillion, for breach of contract. The UK publisher is seeking the repayment of development costs and its legal expenses. A PDF of the complaint filed can be…

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 -…

Jumpgate Evolution Still Evolving

Just as memories of much-delayed space MMO Jumpgate Evolution were deleted by our brains to make room for voluminous Portal 2 hype, a trailer turns up. As is my habit, I've posted the thing below. It's a look at the warlike Octavius faction. And... it's a SHOUTY MAN TRAILER! Hooray! It's been a while since we had one of those. For some reason it doesn't…

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,…

Marvel Universe MMO Lives Again

Just spotted this over on VG247: MMO company Gazillion (who apparently own Jumpgate developers NetDevil, and are therefore also developing the LEGO Universe MMO) have signed a ten year deal to make Marvel MMOs. The first will be a kids MMO called Super Hero Squad, and then there will be a full blown Marvel Universe MMO. All of which future angling creates the interesting possibility…

June For Jumpgate

The latest Jumpgate Evolution trailer seems to confirm that the game is out in June. The beta sign up pages are live on the main site, although there's no open beta yet in progress. The trailer is interesting, showing loads of in-game footage, including some of those capital ship takedown battles that NetDevil have been talking up over the past few months. For more on…

Jumpgate Evolution, shooty footage

Reader Handsdown spotted that there's another remnant of PAX footage that we hadn't yet posted - the cam-footage of Jumpgate Evolution in action. I do believe this is the first time we've seen the game played live, and it's clear that it'll be important to see how this works as an action game, as much as an MMO. NetDevil were very much inclined to talk…

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.

Jumpgate: “Darkness this, darkness that”

There sure is a lot of darkness in the Jumpgate universe, at least if this new trailer is to be believed. Well, it is space, I suppose. Anyway, this has some in-engine (if not in-game) splendidness, and it all looks rather pretty indeed - darkness permitting. And it's about time someone came up with an alternative to that space MMO, so I'm rather anxious to…

Jumpgate Beta Signups

There's an outside chance that Jumpgate Evolution is going to be really good. Netdevil don't have the best track record but, well, there's just something about what we've seen so far that intrigues me. Not that free-flight space MMOs haven't crashed and burned before, or that it's ever going to supplant the many years I've spent in Eve Online but... let's just say I don't…
