LEGO Worlds blasting off to vintage Space in first DLC

LEGO’s classic Space set is coming to the Minecraftbut LEGO Worlds [official site] in its first themed DLC pack. To some, the sight of that little spacecar and the honking great spaceship might inspire nostalgic joy. Myself, I am reminded that the greatest shame of my childhood was stealing a LEGOman from a family friend because LEGO was a once-a-year birthday treat and I ached for that knight with a horse wearing a dress. As soon as I finish explaining about the DLC and how it’s due out in July for a couple quid, I will phone and apologise. First, let’s look at this trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 shows off its supermen

Kam! Zonk! Wappo! Seeing as Marvel’s own crossovers are usually over-serious affairs, both on paper and the silver screen, I’m glad that LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 [official site] is coming to smoosh supermen together in silly ways. The sequel to the game John called “bloody brilliant” will jump across space and time, visiting places and characters from Sakaar to Spider-Man 2099. Also it’ll have your regular plain old Avengers and seed babies and rubbish burglars and all that rabble. The game is due on November 14th/17th but now, a week after its announcement, here’s a new trailer showing a load of supermen: Read the rest of this entry »

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 KONK!ing to November

Those dastardly villains at TT Games have again turned their plasticising ray on the supermen of the Marvel universe, announcing an intent to trap these plasticmen in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 [official site] later this year. Once again, it’ll bring minimen fighting minimonsties in BAM! BIF! POW! action across time and space with jokes and all that. Our resident cackling villain John really dug the original LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, calling it “bloody brilliant” in 2013 and later declaring it one of the best action games. More of that sounds good. Here, have a peek in this teensy trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

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 »
