The Serpent Lantern `adventure pack' (expansion they don't want to call an expansion, kind of) for Champions Online went live yesterday! :)

Part of the Marvel content coming to Little Big Planet on July 7.



Haven't played this game in a while. This makes me want to pick it up again.

In another thread, I was a little too harsh on Lego Batman.  I think that was because I had just come off playing a string of Lego games and was anticipating Batman: Arkham Asylum.  It's a year later and I've picked up Lego Batman again only to find that it's every bit as fun as every other Lego game, which is to say it's great.  Makes me look forward to a price drop on the recently released Lego Harry Potter Year 1-4!

How do the LEGO games play on the Wii? I have that and a PS2, and it doesn't look like the Harry Potter game will be released on that one. I'm not ready to upgrade to a PS3 just yet.

Don't know.  I've played them all on the PS3.  They're great on that system.

LEGO Harry Potter is sitting here waiting for my day off tomorrow. At some point I lost my ability to play any game, other than the LEGO ones, to completion.  But I do love me some Lego...well, I didn't love the second LEGO Indy game. Hopefully Harry Potter will be more Star Wars or Indy 1 than Indy 2.

What didn't you like about it, Mike?  I really enjoyed it.  Hell, I hated CRYSTAL SKULL, but it was still fun for me to play that movie as Lego characters.

Bought it first week of release.  Finished it a couple of weeks ago.  Great game.  Read some middling reviews of it that I think totally miss the point.  It's beautiful, absolutely fun, with a huge territory to roam around in.  Side missions are great, main missions are a blast.  Seriously, this is what I've been waiting years for; a realistic and fun open world Western video game.  I love it.

Lego Harry Potter officially. It is definitely different for a Lego game. I can't quite put my finger on what, but I do love it. My fiance and I have our own game going on after we put the kids to sleep. It is nice to see she is the same completist I am when it comes to those types of games.

Matt,

The hardest thing for me to get down are all the control keys, I keep finding myself jumping when I want to go into cover and things like that.  But once you start mastering things it gets good. When I was shooting guys with my rifle while driving a horse wagon I was like, "Wow".  They put a lot of work into making these game features work well.

I still haven't gotten the hang of shooting birds out of the sky.

What I never really got a handle on was "Dead Eye" especially where it concerned duels.  More often than not, I died!  Try as I might, I never mastered it.  That, to me, was the only downfall to the game.  Other than that, though, I spent hours just riding around the world.  It's beautifully rendered, especially sunsets from such different locals as the Plains or a mountain top.  Stunning.

I didn't DISLIKE Lego Indy 2, so much as not like it nearly as much as it's predecessor. I dunno, I felt like there were more parts walking around LOOKING for the next thing to do rather than just doing it. Or maybe it was because there were a few part where I got frustratingly stuck and had to look up the way out online.

It was good, just not as good. Really looking for ward to sitting down with Harry Potter though.
