LEGO The Incredibles finally plods into stores in Europe

LEGO The Incredibles is out today. Again! It landed in America a month ago, but thanks to publisher Warner Bros wanting the game out on the day of the similarly delayed European film release, we're only just getting it now. Someone needs to tell them that the internet has No Oceans. Still, European parents wanting something to play with their sprogs have one more option…

LEGO The Incredibles is out, but only in America for now

Oh, come on. I thought we were past this silliness. Three weeks is how long it will take for LEGO The Incredibles to make its way across from the US. Either this is a very slow download (oddly plausible), they're shipping the discs via an actual cargo ship, or they're ridiculously adhering to the (also absurdly delayed) UK film launch date. Either way, it's daft,…

Feature: He loves it, he loves it not

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 is great! No, it isn’t.

I am in two minds about Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2. It is a phenomenally dense and ridiculous playground of Traveller's Tales at their finest. And it's a buggy, opaque and disjointed mess of haphazard controls and direction. And I've no idea which one is right. It's me. Or it's me.

Traveller’s Tales director unveils secrets, turns to mods

Jon Burton - founder of prolific studio Traveller's Tales and executive producer on the LEGO movie - has been working in the games industry for nearly three decades now. You pick up some interesting insights after that long, and now he's sharing some of that knowledge with us. Over the past 6 weeks, he's been detailing coding secrets, unveiling abandoned concepts and demoing unreleased builds…

Criminal: Lego City Undercover PC is utterly broken

Yet again TT Games have released a game onto PC that isn't nearly good enough. Lego City Undercover [official site] has launched in such a state that you can't change the resolution from the main menu settings. The "Accept" button is entirely impossible to select, and the default is a teeny 1280x1024. And for goodness sakes, don't Alt-Tab. That's the case for everyone playing, not…

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,…

Lego Star Wars – The Force Awakens review

In some ways Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens [official site] is a refreshing of the extraordinarily prolific Traveller's Tales series. In other ways it's fastidiously adherent to the tried-and-tested formula. In nearly all ways it's a completely splendid game, but even I - the most enthusiastic proponent of this series - am beginning to weary. Here's wot I think:

Sweet FA: Lego Star Wars – The Force Awakens Launches Broken

Update 2: And now the game is finally working. I imagine our review code will arrive any month now! Update: It seems that a missing 9.5GB of the game are now appearing on people's hard drives. What a pickle. Original story: Warner/Traveller's Tales have historically treated the PC releases of their Lego games with what can only be described as contempt. Despite the games almost…

Premature Evaluation: Lego Worlds

Each week Marsh Davies squints at the ambitious blueprint that is Early Access and struggles to work out which bit goes where, and how many pieces are missing, before giving up and, most likely, building a big old cock instead. This week he’s been playing Lego Worlds, TT Games’ attempt to channel the charm of Minecraft’s freeform construction at the behest of their brick-wielding Danish…

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 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…

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…

Feature: Everything is decent

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…

The LEGO Movie Videogame review

Traveller's Tales have been on a real run lately, knocking it out of the park with Lego Marvel Super Heroes, Lego Lord Of The Rings and Lego Batman 2. So a game based on a movie about people made of Lego? What more could they want? Well, a lot more movie, perhaps a trilogy, for a start. Here's wot I think of The Lego Movie…

The Legolation Of Smaug: Lego The Hobbit

Someday, we will all probably be made of Lego bricks. Based on the ceaseless, inevitable march of Traveler's Tales' "Lego The Thing" (not a Lego version of The Thing, which is something that absolutely needs to happen) franchise, it's only a matter of time. We may as well cherish what little time we have left as easily popped flesh balloons, given that we will soon be…

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…
