LEGO Game #??? Announced

We’re already getting SDCC (San Diego ComicCon) video game announcements and the freekin’ event hasn’t started yet! It’s becoming like E3 and that both excites and worries me.

Anyway, the LEGO brand will be releasing another LEGO based game titled The LEOG Movie Videogame. It’ll be set to release in 2014 across the myriad of platforms, including the Xbox 360 and PS3 so for those of us who are not so quick to upgrade will be able to experience the fun of it all. It also helps that it will be released in conjunction with the LEGO film. The game will allow players to be cast as the lead Emmet who becomes the hero through a series of misfortunate events. And you know the rest of the story: evil guy tries to take over LEGO world and you have to stop him by building your way to victory. What? It’s LEGO’s. Building will be involved.

I don’t know how well the LEGO series of games fares in the eyes of the gaming community. They obviously sell well since they keep making them. The Star Wars series has been remade three-fold with LEGO’s, and you have Pirates of the Carribaen, Batman, DC Comics, it’s a plethora of LEGO’s. There is a soft-spot for the building blocks (which will always be superior to Lincoln Logs) and I admit to finding joy in beating up Jar-Jar Binks or throwing Robin off a roof. I’m sure this LEGO game will be another success even if the movie isn’t.
