Quick, what's the name of the DC Comics super-team made of villains who go on potentially fatal missions? Yup, it's the Suicide Squad. Only that's not what they're going to be called in the Lego Batman 3 add-on coming early next year. There, they're going by The Squad.
Poor Hal Jordan. He can't carry a movie, he can't be trusted with his own LEGO playset, and when Traveller's Tales creates a LEGO video game that is very much an epic Green Lantern yarn, he has to take a back seat to Bruce Wayne, the tedious title character of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.
Like the first two games in the series, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham begins with the terrestrial adventures of Batman and Robin. It's a slow start, but then comes a moment when it all comes together and the game kicks into high gear.
There's only a month left before LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham hits store shelves, and developer Traveller's Tales still has surprises up its sleeves. Today talk show host Conan O'Brien, Duck Dodgers as the Green Loontern and more crazy characters were added to the game's already impressive roster.
In what I feel is a horrible example of miscasting, film director and rabid Batman fan Kevin Smith has been tapped to voice film director and rabid Batman fan Kevin Smith in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.
Today Warner Bros. announced the first-ever season pass for a LEGO game, promising players six downloadable content packs and more than 40 new characters for $14.99. What they should really be doing is bundling their DLC with Minifigs and selling it in stores.
Lego Batman 3 comes out on November 11 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Wii U, 3DS, PS Vita and PC, sending minifig Bruce Wayne and a whole lot of other DC superheroes out into space for hi-jinx.
The evil Brainiac, seeking to upgrade from collecting cities to collecting whole worlds, harness the power of the Lantern Rings in order to shrink the Earth, forcing DC's greatest superheroes to join forces with the Legion of Doom to stop him. That's something I'd like to see.
Let's be real here: including Plastic Man in any Lego video game should break the whole damn thing. He's Plastic Man! He can transform into almost anything! Even Lego bricks!
I get it, lots of people hate preorder bonuses. The only thing they hate more is retailer-specific preorder bonuses. LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham features six different retailer-specific incentives, but only one is a Plastic Man minifig. Which retailer gets it? Oh you know.
Here’s your first look at Traveller’s Tales’ third brick-based Batman. The latest in the series builds on the suits of the last installment but takes the action into space, including some very Resogun-like shooting sections - ironically with a less blocky appearance than the original source.
What's that up there? It's a Lego Batcave. Where is it? Under Lego Batman's Wayne Manor, of course. Awesome, right? It'd be more awesome if a blocky version of Bruce Wayne's ancestral home actually existed. You can help with that.
Batman and Joker are two sides of the same crazy coin, according to some comics in the Dark Knight’s 74-year history. The thinking goes that you have to be insane to do what each character does and that their unique relationship binds them in a symbiotic way. So it makes a weird bit of sense that the same guy is…
What's LEGO Batman: The Movie - DC Superheroes Unite got that Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight triology doesn't? How about the entire DC Universe? See how many character you can spot in this all-too-brief clip of May 21 direct-to-video feature. Then scroll down for some fresh screens!
So Lego Batman 2 will be the first toy-centric video game developed by Traveler's Tales that features voice acting. Now, given that the silent comedy was a big part of the appeal in previous Lego games, there might be some worry about such a change. But as the trailer above shows, the upcoming game looks as funny as…
The next Lego Batman game comes packed with superheroes. Enough to form a Justice League, even. And that's great for the adults who already know those characters and will be playing with children. But if I were a seven-year-old kid playing the not-out-yet Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, the first thing I'd want to do…
With Superman, Wonder Woman and Green lantern joining the Dark Knight in Lego Batman 2, you're pretty much going to be able to assemble a miniature Justice League in the block-happy sequel. But since when it comes to hero team-ups, four measly characters is barely an appetizer. You'll be happy to know, then, that…
Crossovers happen in comics all the time, where characters stumble into worlds that look radically different and meet alternate versions of themselves. Such a thing probably won't happen with the kid-friendly Lego Batman 2 and the Dark Knight's ultra-violent exploits in Batman: Arkham City.
Rumors have been swirling about an expanded superhero cast in the follow-up to 2008's Lego Batman, with the Amazing Amazon and the Man of Steel reportedly joining the toy-riffic version of the Dark Knight. Ads inside of new Lego toys appear to confirm that, according to MCVUK. Lego's launching a new Super Heroes line…
