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 1280×1024. And for goodness sakes, don’t Alt-Tab.

That’s the case for everyone playing, not just an unlucky few. However, the individual issues then start piling up. Read the rest of this entry »

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, as LEGO City Undercover finally arrived on PC today. Read the rest of this entry »

Bricking it: LEGO Worlds leaves early access

Clip clack snap, LEGO Worlds [official site] is out. After almost two years in early access, the Minecraftbut with LEGO bricks has hit version 1.0 and officially launched. The big change in shifting from early access to full release seems to be adding quests and unlockable stuff, which is curious for a game that was a freeform sandbox for so long. Still, its LEGO Minecraftbut building does seem quite nice, with all those different LEGO shapes rather than your regulation cubes (and, in more advanced Minecraftbuts, pyramids). They’re not bad, those there LEGO bricks. Read the rest of this entry »

Bricky bobbies: LEGO City Undercover coming to PC

LEGO City Undercover [official site] is finally on its way to PC, having been banged up on Nintendo’s Wii U since 2013. It’s the LEGO game I’ve wanted most in yonks, an open-world ‘Grand Theft Auto for kiddywinkles’ sort of dealio parodying ’70s cop movies and TV shows. Expect gangs of punks, big boxes of donuts, deep cop funk, and villains with names like Rex Fury. I heard good things about it and I’ll be keen to see myself when the game swings by our way in spring 2017. Read the rest of this entry »

Block Party: LEGO Worlds Adds Online Multiplayer

After a year of block-building in Early Access, LEGO Worlds [official site] is finally adding online multiplayer as part of Update 6. A beta version is now live so you and one pal can partner up/fall out forever in each other’s worlds, making use of the update’s other additions – such as a first-person camera view and grappling hooks – as you see fit. More on the update, how to join the beta, and an E3-flavoured multiplayer trailer below.

Poe Dameron Shows Off In LEGO Star Wars Trailer

Yeah, Han! I knew you'd defeat Kylo Ren this time!

Oh! I’d entirely forgotten about LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens [official site], possibly because its announcement leaked out with a pffffft. But yes, a plasticised adaptation of last year’s boldly-going megahit movie is coming on June 28th, a new trailer reminds me. It’s not the greatest trailer, unless you’re really, really into Poe Dameron (yeah, I’ve seen your fan art), but hey, I’m glad to be reminded this is coming. Click on, where no one has gone before, to see Poe in action:

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Coming In June

It’s been six weeks since I saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens and, on reflection, yes the best bit is definitely the robots and carpet man making all their silly noises. I laughed every time. I have high hopes, then, for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. TT Games always bring ‘the laffs’ in their plasticised riffs on movies, and they have such strong source material here! We’re not supposed to know yet that their next blocky adventure is The Force Awakens (heck, LEGO Avengers only just came out), but a trailer and Xbox store listing have arrived a bit before the game’s actually announced.
