It’s official: LEGO The Incredibles announced

The supervillains at TT Games at continuing their fiendish plot to turn the world’s superheroes into virtual plastic. Having trapped Marvel and DC champions inside a string of games, now they’re making LEGO The Incredibles to snare Pixar’s heroes too. It’ll do those usual TT LEGO fight-o-jump a things, this time with the combined superpowers of the Parr family. It’ll will launch in a few months on the same day The Incredibles 2 hits cinemas, which disappointingly is one month late for us here in the UK. Ooh it’s like the 90s all over again.

Spexar: A Gaming Dream-Team?

WARRRRRRRRRRRRR-EEEEEEN

Interesting timing, this. I was chatting to a journo-chum yesterday about how disappointingly tedious the Wall-E game was, and how odd and sad it was that a film studio as accomplished as Pixar would be happy to let such turgid nonsense be officially associated with them.

WALL-E Finds Another Thing He’s Useful For

Pixar’s next film looks like it might be their best so far. WALL-E’s trailers show a delicacy and care beyond anything CGI’s done before, and demonstrates an attempt to portray a children’s narrative without dialogue. So, of course, there’s going to be the tie-in game.

However, I find myself slower to sigh after the surprise of Cars. It was a really very enjoyable game, a sort of kids’ GTA open world driving game. And looking at this trailer for the WALL-E tie-in, it doesn’t look half bad.
