One game to rule them all
A new LEGO The Lord of the Rings trailer has arisen from the depths of Mordor — or Gamescom in Cologne, as it's formally known — to remind us once more that The Lord of the Rings is indeed getting a much needed LEGO makeover.

Complaining does pay off sometimes

Developer 5th Cell is...
Only as PAX prizes, sadly
The game that's more a test of wordsmanship than gaming skills, Super Scribblenauts is going all-out to provide the most stylish gamers out there with enough customised stuff to sink a pink, spotted battleship.
