JK Rendering: LEGO Harry Potter In Action

Cheery things about videogames, to make people cheery. It's been a while since the LEGO [insert film franchise here] series tickled our funny bones and our puzzle bones quite as expertly as it once did, but I suspect there's a lot of energy and creativity being poured into the upcoming Barry Trotter builder-basher. For one thing, the fact that the Potter books are centred around…

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…

This’ll Sell Well: Lego Harry Potter

About as obvious a next move as they come for Traveller's Tales - they're all chummied up with Warners in the wake of Lego Batman, which surely paved the way for what's the holy money-grail of Lego licenses: that bally boy wizard. The game'll cover the lad's first four years at Hogwarts, and will make EA, who publish the movie-related HP games, very cross indeed.…

Holy Batinstaller (Trad): Lego Batman Demo

We go to sleep, and in the morning... there's demos. Lots of demos. By which I mean, two. Firstly, there's the 400Mb-and-a-few-bricks demo of the Lego Batman electronic videogametacular. Opinions are a little split internally over Lego Batman actually. Walker really likes it, liking its sheer size. I'm mildly liking it, mostly because it's not as funny-for-grown-ups as Lego Star Wars. But maybe more on…

Brief Impressions: Lego Batman

So last Tuesday I wandered down to London, city of black snot, horrible musicals and formerly of Kieron's recently deceased beard, to see Lego Batman. Well, also to watch an early screening of The Dark Knight, but I can't really jaff off about that here. Short answer - very much agree with Big-Face Kermode, which isn't always the case. I didn't get much time at…

Dinner Dinner Dinner Dinner

More Lego Batman footage appears from E3. After the slight disappointment of Lego Indy (too similar to the Star Wars games, and missing the Force), it's harder to know what to think about this one. Obviously hopes are high, and it's not as if Lego Indy wasn't lots of fun. But we want Lego Batman to be much more - the Lego game that makes…

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 now want…

To The Brickmobile: New LEGO Batman Screens

Frankly, we know what we're in for with Lego Indiana Jones - Lucasarts property, swinging with the whip, digging with the spade, shooting with the gun, and no damned Nazis. It's a natural sequel to Lego Star Wars. Lego Batman, though - there's a lot more to play with there. Bats' supervillains offer a little more breadth than Star Wars' guns'n'Force line-up, plus, not being…

Nazis: I hate those guys!

We try to keep up to date with all forms of Indie-development, so were paying close attention to Traveller's Tales' forthcoming Lego Indiana Jones game. However news reaches us, via the C&VG chaps reading their latest copy of the looming-black-obliesk of the games press, Edge, that the game will actually sidestep the Nazi issue by excising them completely. "Lego having already replaced them with an…

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…

Holey Plastic Blocks

It's the Lego Batman trailer! Thanks, Gametrailers - unlike criminals, you are not a cowardly and superstitious lot.Not giving much away, eh? That's The Batman for you though - all shadowy and mysterious, keeps his cards close to his impeccably-toned chest'n'all. And, of course, there probably isn't all that much to give away anyway. We can guess pretty much what to expect from this -…
