Review: The LEGO Movie Videogame (3DS)

The LEGO Movie Videogame (3DS)

Movie Mildness

Video game tie-ins have been haunting films since the inception of the interactive medium, especially when those films are deemed "kid friendly." Essentially used as a marketing ploy, video games based on motion pictures are usually ill-fated projects that never stood a chance from the very beginning. From Disney cartoons to sci-fi...

LEGO The Hobbit Questing Onto Wii U and 3DS in April

Will block up the charts

With two movies down and a third on the way, LEGO The Hobbit finally has release dates for its arrival on Wii U, 3DS and pretty much every gaming console on the market. It'll begin its epic quest on 8th April in North America and 11th April in Europe. This game entry will take in events from the first two movies — An...

Review: LEGO Friends (3DS)

LEGO Friends (3DS)

No friend of mine

Warner Bros. Interactive and Hellbent Games' LEGO Friends is a bad game. There's no nicer way of putting it. A squandered opportunity to make another gaming hit out of a popular LEGO property, LEGO Friends feels like a cynical cash-in designed to provide young gamers with a few minutes of mindless diversion before they request the...

The LEGO Movie Game Unleashes Its Début Trailer

Batman appears because, why not?

In future years we may look back at this as an era of many things in gaming, but LEGO will surely get an honourable mention. LEGO games are everywhere, with the latest being LEGO Marvel Super Heroes; 2014 is already gearing up to deliver even more. One of these is The LEGO Movie Videogame which, unsurprisingly, is...

Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Wii U)

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Wii U)

Super studs

There was really no way to predict it so long ago, but the modern series of LEGO franchised games are undeniably great. When the first LEGO Star Wars game hit store shelves in 2005, it’s probably safe to assume that Traveller’s Tales didn’t foresee the growth that the franchise would go on to enjoy. Eight years and more than 10...

Warner Bros. Confirms LEGO The Hobbit For Release on the Wii U and 3DS Next Year

Go on an epic adventure with Bilbo and co.

Last week we reported that LEGO The Hobbit was scheduled for a 2014 release on 3DS and Wii U, with thanks to a scanned image of a promotional planner spotted in France - we stuck on the rumour tag for good measure as nothing about the title was confirmed. Today we come with good news, as Warner Bros. has...

Rumour: LEGO The Hobbit Planned for 2014 Release

LEGO The Hobbit Planned for 2014 Release

Will likely cover lots of film sequences that weren't actually in the book

Is there any franchise that LEGO video games can't cover? It's a tricky one, and we'd have to start tagging 'Woody Allen' films as a series if we had to try really hard — TT Fusion has already covered Batman, Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Marvel to name some, though hasn't...

Weirdness: You Could Hang This Mini Lego Mario Question Block on Your Christmas Tree

You Could Hang This Mini Lego Mario Question Block on Your Christmas Tree

We particularly like the Lego Atari 2600

The Holiday season is a festive, happy time, when many off us happily pile on the pounds and, presumably, play a lot of games. It's a time of backlog busting and, perhaps, silly family games — that Wii or, dare we say Wii U can provide the latter activity in particular. Some of us may also have a Christmas...

Supporters Needed To Rebuild NES Hero Mega Man In Lego

From 8-bit to 8-brick

Mega Man has always been a cherished icon since his very first appearance on the NES in 1987, and now a designer by the name of Alatariel seeks to immortalise the character further with an official Lego set. Classic stages from Mega Man 2 such as Wily's Castle and Metal Man can be seen recreated on the designer's page, and...

TT Games Reveals Some New Characters in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

Will have a demo available on "most platforms"

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is set to blast onto Wii U in October in North America and 15th November in Europe, and anticipation for it is building by the day. Developer TT Games presented it during Eurogamer Expo as part of a Q&A session with director Arthur Parsons and revealed a few new characters...

Weirdness: Perhaps We All Need These LEGO Nintendo 64 Transformers in Our Lives

Perhaps We All Need These LEGO Nintendo 64 Transformers in Our Lives

More than meets the eye

Sometimes life is tough. Some of us have work, school, work and school, bills to pay, credit card bills to panic over and a myriad of other concerns. At least we have video games to ease the load, but there's always room for improvement; how about combining video games with LEGO and Transformers? Yes, that'll do the trick...

Review: LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (Wii U)

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (Wii U)

Holy year-old port, Batman!

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes on Wii U finds itself in an unenviable position. Released last year to critical acclaim and heralded as a new beginning to an increasingly stale series of games, it is only now releasing on Wii U, a system that has recently played host to what some consider the new pinnacle of LEGO games,...

New LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Screens Are Beyond Cute

Hulk Smash!

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes was confirmed earlier in the year for Wii U, 3DS and, surprisingly, DS. The franchise has gone into DC Heroes territory before, of course, but combining Marvel characters with LEGO is sure to delight a broad variety of gamers. While the game was revealed earlier in the year, we didn't know much else beyond its...

The Building Blocks for a LEGO City

One block at a time

As one of the most popular toys in the world, LEGO has been a part of almost everyone’s lives. The unbridled sense of creativity and possibility that the bricks produce is arguably unmatched by anything else, so it’s no surprise that the LEGO Group has continually pushed for the creation of LEGO games. Be it based purely on...
