Never Too Old For LEGOS…

I love LEGOS. Who doesn't? I've been playing with LEGOS about as long as I've been playing video games. And while I might not play with the actual bricks and blocks every single day, I can tell you it hasn't been all that long since I have. On Friday, I watched a co-worker build a Minecraft LEGO set. And not all that long ago I pieced together a set of Halo LEGOS for my desk. So, what's even cooler than LEGOS? Well, maybe not cooler...maybe as cool? LEGO video games. There are so many cool LEGO video games out now. I've only played a few of them - but I always enjoy seeing which game gets featured next. And it looks like the next might be, The LEGO Movie Video Game.

If it's anything like the movie, I'm sure it will be every bit as good as some of the previous episodes. I just watched the movie last night (hence the LEGO blog today). It was, dare I say, great. I've talked with quite a few people who have seen it, and the general consensus always seems to agree, it's great.

An ordinary Lego construction worker, thought to be the prophesied 'Special', is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the Lego universe into eternal stasis.

If you haven't seen it, don't worry...I won't spoil anything. And if you have seen it, it was freakin' awesome wasn't it!? I was actually surprised I liked it as much as I did. I was rather impressed with a lot of the animations - for example, how it used actual LEGO pieces to recreate waves and explosions. It was very cool. And the characters...the characters and their dialogue...simply brilliant. You can look at the cover of the movie and see Batman, who does make an appearance. And he is one of the more entertaining characters.

Apparently The LEGO Movie Video Game has been out for a few months. Like since February of this year. It's pretty much available for all the big named platforms, including the Wii U.

Transform the ordinary into the extraordinary and experience the ultimate LEGO building experience in the all new The LEGO® Movie Videogame. Step into the world of Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average citizen who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. Players guide him as he is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.


Enjoy a delightful and surprising mix of over 90 characters as seen from the film including Batman, Superman, the Green Ninja, Gandalf and more in 15 exciting levels

Wow, ninety characters. That's an impressive lineup. Of course I was particularly fond of Metalbeard and his pirate ship, so I'd like to see this scene recreated in the game. Benny was a pretty cool character too.

This '70s era spaceman suffers from a cracked helmet and lack of oxygen. His first love will always be spaceships but he will do anything to help his fellow LEGO Master Builders.

Do you play LEGOS, have you watched The LEGO Movie and/or have you played The LEGO Movie video game?

Cheers.
