LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Video Game!!!

January 8, 2013

Some said a collaboration between Marvel and TT Games could never happen. Apparently, nobody told the studio behind the popular series of Lego games. After all, Warner Bros. is the parent company of both TT Games and DC Comics, which made many people assume that a Marvel Lego game was off the table. As our cover story shows, those people were wrong.

Not much news is available yet, but just the name LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Video Game conjures excitement! How can it be anything but cool? Especially after watching this video

LEGO Lord of the Rings Video Game was a pleasant surprise for me and I really enjoyed it. Of course to be honest I’ve enjoyed pretty much every Travler’s Tales LEGO game out there. But the Lord of the Rings story just isn’t my cup of tea. Marvel on the other hand — well lets just say I went and saw Avengers three times in theaters and leave it at that. ;)

The one thing I’m hoping, and they probably have fixed this if LEGO Lord of the Rings is any indication, is that the Marvel game will be about more than one character. I loved LEGO Batman 2 but its one failure was that you only got to be Superman at the very end of the story portion of the game. Once you got into Free Play, it was much cooler. I mean who doesn’t want to fly around the city looking for citizens to save?

Lord of the Rings was very different, and had to be, since it was the Fellowship of nine characters traveling around together for the most part. So you got to use all the different characters with all their different abilities much more frequently, even if it that can also get a tad old after awhile. I have to admit, I still haven’t finished the game. A week is about my limit on playing a game constantly. I don’t know of any of the games that I’ve fully finished except maybe the old LEGO Star Wars video games, but that was many years ago when I didn’t have quite so much going on in my life.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Video Game won’t be out till the fall, so we have a while to wait. LEGO City Undercover exclusively for the Wii U game console is set to come out March 1st and although it looks like fun, I don’t have a Wii U and don’t have plans to get one any time soon.

Even if we do have a bit of a wait I’m looking forward to being Iron Man, Spiderman, and Wolverine when it finally does come out. And of course as soon as I know more info I’ll let you know. ;)

Chima goes digital

January 3, 2013

The new Legends of Chima theme is barely on the shelf but LEGO already has big plans for it. Warner Brothers Interactive has three games planed. A mini game for LEGO.com, one for Nintendo 3DS and PSP Vita, and a free to play online game.

London, UK – 2nd January, 2013 – Enter and explore the Kingdom of Chima™ in three gameplay experiences, offering something for all types of LEGO® gamers! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and The LEGO Group today announced the LEGO ® Legends of Chima ™ videogames, scheduled to roar into 2013 for various platforms. The three videogames will each provide an entirely unique and exciting adventure that builds to the next experience and complement the just announced LEGO Legends of Chima™ universe of products, which includes construction sets, vehicles, TV content and more. LEGO Legends of Chima™ is a fantasy adventure set in land inhabited by different magical animal tribes and tells the classic story of good and evil, friendship and family.

“We are doing something innovative with LEGO Legends of Chima™ by making three distinct videogame experiences on a variety of platforms,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “By creating multiple LEGO videogame experiences for one brand, we are catering to today’s diverse gaming community, as well as establish a rewards system for players of all three games.”

LEGO® Legends of Chima ™: Speedorz ™, a racing mini-game produced by TT Games and 4T2, revs its way on to LEGO.com today and iOS tomorrow, 3rd January. Players will race against famous Chima™ characters, battle through iconic Chima™ locations, and unleash the power of CHI to boost their Speedorz, all while collecting studs and rewards to unlock more Speedorz and customize characters. The player’s goal is to become the ultimate champion and win Golden CHI, which transforms the world map and opens a new race level.

LEGO® Legends of Chima ™: Laval’s Journey, developed by TT Games, is scheduled to be available for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system and for the PS®Vita system in summer 2013 and for the Nintendo DS™ hand-held system in autumn 2013. Players will embark on an amazing adventure into the world of Chima™ where the brave warrior Laval and his allies are called upon to fight for justice.

In autumn 2013, LEGO® Legends of Chima ™ Online , a free-to-play, online world developed by WB Games Montréal, will provide kids with a safe and incredibly immersive connected game experience. Players will be able to build and customize their kingdom in the world of Chima™, explore massive environments like the Falling Leaves Forest, take on missions to help Laval and his friends, uncover hidden secrets and treasures, earn rewards, and use LEGO bricks to build weapons, gadgets, and more!

The Chima™ Vault, which houses an exclusive reward system, will be accessible to players on LEGO.com/chima. While playing LEGO Legends of Chima™: Speedorz ™ and LEGO Legends of Chima™: Laval’s Journey , players will be able to earn points. These points can be redeemed through the Vault for a variety of unique content that players can use to enhance their experience in LEGO® Legends of Chima ™ Online.

Not to be out done, Cartoon Network is starting a whole new series based off the toys. The first episode will be aired on January 16th.

I’m still on the fence with these sets. I’m personally not too keen on the whole animal figs, but I do like all the new parts and colors. Olive green and bright light orange any one? Not to mention the awesome new wing elements.

I’m hoping the Nintendo 3 DS game will be fun and plan on picking that up when it becomes available.

TT Games Announces Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars

February 8, 2010

It’s official, there will soon be a third LEGO Star Wars Video Game.

Based on the popular Cartoon Network animated TV series. The game is set for Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PSP, DS, and PC this fall. The company promises characters from both seasons of the series, along with cameos from the movie characters. TT is working to make this game an improvement over previous installments with an enhanced level builder, Jedi and Separatist factions, and new attacks and abilities.

“LucasArts is an amazing partner, and working with them on the next iteration of the Lego Star Wars continues to be a great experience,” said TT Games director Tom Stone in the press release. “The team at TT is working hard at making this simply the best Lego game ever with all new gameplay and features never before seen in a Lego game.”

Now although Clone Wars isn’t my most favorite of the Star Wars universe, I’m always a fan of the Traveler’s Tales LEGO Video Games. :)

Of course, I’m falling a tad behind on the games, since I’ve yet to get a PS3, Wii or Xbox. But I’ll catch up one of these days. ;)

LEGO Batman: The Mosaic

September 27, 2008

Hi all. Sorry I’ve not been quite as faithful in my writings lately. But I do have a good excuse. Now that the “big project” is over I can show you all what I was working on.

This is my LEGO Batman Mosaic. It took me about two weeks to make. It is two feet by two feet in size and it has 14 different colors in it. The bats in the background and on Batman’s chest as well as the belt and logo on Robin’s chest were made by my brother Michael Asanuma. He is a graphic and special effects artist up in LA.

I made it for Warner Brothers Interactive and built it on-site during the Launch Party for the LEGO Batman the Video Game that was held at the Natural History Museum in New York on Sep 23rd. I also made the LEGO Batman the Video Game logo. This mosaic is three feet long and about a foot tall.

I also wanted to share the amazing cake that was created by Confetti Cakes:

Its not LEGO, but it sure looks like it!

Its not LEGO, but it sure looks like it!

I’ll try and be better at posting, but I am also going to go on a road trip up to BrickCon starting tomorrow. By the way, for all of those going, you will be able to see both Batman Mosaics on display at the convention.
