The Saturday Morning Stream Of Mordor (And We're Done)

For the past two weeks I've had to hear or read about how much almost everyone on the site playing Middle-earth: Shadows of Mordor is loving the game. Now it's my turn to exterminate some orcs. » 10/04/14 12:10pm 10/04/14 12:10pm

LEGO Batman 3 Is Getting A DLC Season Pass. I've Got A Better Idea.

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. » 9/09/14 10:40am 9/09/14 10:40am

We're used to LEGO video games based on movies. Here's a video game based on a LEGO movie. Maybe it's leaning on the first full movie trailer a bit too much, but that's only because that trailer was awesome. If the game manages to channel even a tenth of that awesome, it'll be one-tenth as awesome. This is basic… » 12/09/13 10:40am 12/09/13 10:40am

Don’t Worry, More DC Superhero Video Games Are Apparently on the Way

Man Of Steel Is Not A Bad Game. Just A Bad Superman Game.

If Phosphor Games Man of Steel featured some generic superhero character — if I weren't meant to be stepping into the red boots of a comic book icon with three-quarters of a century of history — I would probably love it. » 6/13/13 5:30pm 6/13/13 5:30pm
