LEGO has come to be dominated by licensed sets with strict instructions and little room for creativity, but you can still buy a big ol’ box of LEGO bricks for $16 on Amazon today, an all-time low. It doesn’t include Han Solo or a Minecraft creeper, but you will get 303 pieces to build whatever you want.
This Saturday, an enormous new Gundam store will open its doors in Tokyo’s Odaiba. Called The Gundam Base Tokyo, the shop will have over 2,000 types of Gundam goods for sale and another 1,500 on display. That is apparently the largest assortment on Earth.
This month, a series of officially licensed “Terrarium Collection” Pokémon toys goes on sale in Japan. The collection doesn’t specifically say that this is what the inside of Pokéballs actually look like. But, they are shaped like Pokéballs!
For the past few years, it has felt like Hideo Kojima and Konami have been at loggerheads. Even last month, the saga seemed to be endless. In a new interview, however, Kojima discusses what was good about his Konami days—namely, letting him make the games he wanted to.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is an easy video game to like in spite of its flaws. It’s buoyed by a winning cast of characters and has some of the prettiest vistas this side of an actual trip to India. It also includes one of the most entertaining hidden features I’ve ever encountered in a video game.
3D animator Elijah Robertson has done a neat thing where he “did models of Nintendo consoles as if they were rendered on themselves”. So the NES is just pixels, the GameCube decent polygons, etc.
As previously discussed, my son is getting pretty good at video games. Because of this, despite being only four years old, I’ve started letting him play Zelda: Breath of the Wild by himself. It has turned out to be a very good decision.
Zane Plays Proboid is a clever animated short from Polaris about a deep space explorer cut off from all forms of communication... except Twitch chat. Somehow, livestream viewers find his emergency channel and think it’s a video game stream. Things do not go well for him.
Here’s a new trailer for Iron Harvest, the upcoming RTS based in the same universe as 2016's very good board game Scythe.
A few years back, games artist Toby Lewin had an image he drew for a Blizzard contest (above) go viral. You see it all over the internet these days, from posters to mouse pads, but this week it turned up in the real world on...a war memorial in the Ukranian capital Kiev.

You blink. You rub your eyes. You look around. “Oh crap,” you realize, “I’m at a party.”
Action-adventure adventure game Crackdown 3 will be delayed from November to Spring 2018, Polygon reports.
Sci-fi adventure game Original Journey entices with its hand-drawn pencil art of alien mutant egg creatures. And luckily, they feel as good to bombard with cannons as they do to look at.
Some might joke that the biggest surprise about Sonic Mania is that it was a good Sonic game. The game does have actual secrets, though, and they’re really fun.
I love complicated action games in general, though I have a particular soft spot for ones that make my hands hurt. I am pleased to announce that Resogun and Super Stardust HD developers Housemarque’s latest game, Matterfall, takes a seat beside God Hand at the roundtable of games which might cause carpal tunnel.
