Wet blanket time.


Maybe the James Bond series (i think this would translate exceptionally well)
Probably too sexual/violent. Which leads us to:


the Terminator series,
R-rated films.


The Matrix,
R-rated films.


Aliens,
R-rated films.


Predator,
R-rated films.


Star Trek.
Building toy rights tied up by competitor.


Or how about linking up with Capcom for a Lego Street Fighter to change it up a bit.
So your only viable selection is inherently different gameplay-wise.

There's gonna be Simpsons themed Lego toys in 2014, so maybe we'll get a videogame out of that.

First of all, these games are fun....but wet blanket??? Seriously. OK. Whatever floats your boat.

I was merely thinking of other series that would be fun if they ever got transferred into a Lego game. Of course i realize that most i put are adult themed movies, but the set pieces in most would make interesting level design.

As for the James Bond game, i don't think they are too violent or sexual to stop from being made into a game. The licensing...well that will probably be a major hurdle. I think they could make an excellent series of Lego games and plenty of story lines to make games.

As for the Street Fighter game, well the Lego formula is now pretty tried and tested. Maybe at this stage its getting a little stale. It would be interesting for them to mix it up a bit. I seem to recall them doing a racing game at one point. Why not try a fighting game. I think it could be pretty fun if handled well.

So all i was doing was hypothesizing about movies and maybe even game overlaps that would be fun.

I've been playing it ovre the past week and really enjoyed it. The only complaint that I have for it is that a certain ability you don't get until you almost finish the main story line. I have been trying to get as many characters and gold bricks before finishing the main story line.

However,

Spoiler:
many of the characters and gold blocks require a character with magnetic ability. You don't get Magneto (which is the only character I think with magnetic ability) until almost the last story mission.


It's limited my ability to go back into each mission, the story missions and the side missions, to get the character in peril, minikits, etc. Also, getting telekentic powers came fairly late in the game as well.

I'm at the next to the last story mission, so I think that I have all the needed abilities now to do everything. I have completed both story/free play 8 out of the 12 side missions for the red bricks. Just need to get more money to buy the multipliers so that I can get lego money easier to buy characters, etc.

That's really nothing new. Star Wars had the stuff that required Sith powers and you didn't get them until late in the game. DC had stuff that only Joker, Riddler and Lex could open.

james2025a 11-04-13 11:13 AM

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
 
Well i am just shy of 200 gold bricks and most of the characters unlocked. Is it just me, or does the Galactus character seem to fly a little faster than the others? I also like the nod to the Infinity Gauntlet on the Asgard level.

Feel like I'm getting pretty far into Arkham Origins, so I ordered this on the Wii U. Should have it on Tuesday.

Not to spoil anything, but with Lego City Undercover there was a power that you didn't get until you beat the game.

I've gotten 100% completion on the majority of the Lego games and I find for me it's better to play through the game first and then go back and try to get all the bricks and collectibles.

I HATE the races, I can't complete a flying one w/ the weird flying controls, also I'm on the 2nd Ghost Rider race and I can't even keep it close through the second hoop. And the zip line seems almost impossible. My son is getting mad that neither of us can finish those last few.

I forget what's what in LOTR and HP but POTC had stuff only Blackbeard could access. Same thing: you only got him at the end of the story mode.

In Batman 2/DC there was a clear path: you play the story missions, you unlock all the extra characters in the open world, you go back into free play with the stuff you unlocked.

I'm looking forward to playing this but I'm curious if the next-gen version has anything substantial added. If it's just a slightly better-looking version of the exact same game I'd actually rather get the 360 version so I could play it with my nephew at his house.

this game is frustrating. i've beat every level. collected every character. i have 1 gold brick left to find. i've seemingly done all the races. i can't figure out where this last one is. grrrrrr

I took a break from this game as I think it's cheated me out of a Minikit canister, but I remember a falling glitch I had on
Spoiler:
Liberty Island, and it looked there's a gold brick inside the Statue of Liberty's torch.

No, there was one physically inside

the torch's flame; not sure how to get to it
... I fell off trying to rescue him.

How can there be one inside of the flame? it is a solid piece of metal. :confused:

Deftones 11-16-13 03:25 PM

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
 
So this is odd. Can't get the last gold brick. Has to be a glitch. Makes me mad because I can't get 1k achievements for the game because I can't get 100 percent. My son was playing a random deadpool level and beat it (circus one). The achievement for 100 percent popped up. I had already beat the level so there was no yellow brick to get. Oh well I won't complain now that I got it but totally odd.

Starting on Sunday, TRU will have the 360, PS3 & Wii U versions for $19.99 and PS4 & One versions for $29.99

Nice. I wonder if the Next Gen versions are worth the extra $10.

Cool. I sold my PS3 version because it kept freezing on me. I'll definitely pick up the U version and hopefully that won't have the same problem.

You probably won't notice a huge improvement in graphics. Maybe the frame rate is a little better? (at least on the PS4 version ;)). But to me it's worth $10 to play in on a next gen system. Hell, even if it's just for the resale value.

I read somewhere that the load times are considerably shorter on the next gen versions, but I can't recall where I saw that. I only played through PS4, so don't have a great point of comparison, but they did seem lighter than when I played through previous Lego titles on 360.

I had the same problem with the 360 version. It's the first Lego game I kicked out of the system without getting 100%.

Supermallet 02-03-14 04:46 PM

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
 
I already have it on the Wii U, and didn't have freezing problems that I can recall. But then I didn't play it extensively.

Amazon matched TRU for the XB1 for $29.99. Still waiting on the PS4 version now...

slop101 02-05-14 10:13 AM

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
 
If they lower the price on the PS4 version I would totally get that. But looking into the PS4 version, it seems that, except for it being in 1080p, it's pretty much the same game. It's still only 30 frame per second on the PS4. I can't believe they couldn't bump it up to 60 fps, considering it's not pushing any more polygons than the PS3 version is.

mattysemo247 02-05-14 11:01 AM

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
 
Didn't the 360/PS3 versions have some stuttering/frame rate issues as well? I thought someone mentioned that they didn't notice those issues on the next gen versions. I could be wrong though, so you may want to double check.

What Amazon site are you guys seeing $29 on? The Amazon site I go to shows only the PS4&XB1 at $29, all other versions are around $40.

Toys R Us has the PS4 and Xbox One versions for $29.99, and the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U versions for $19.99.

Amazon pricematched the PS4 and Xbox One price, but they haven't pricematched the other versions.

The only versions on sale for $29.99 anywhere, as far as I know, are the Xbox One and PS4 releases.

No point in starting a new thread, but there's a new Lego game for all systems based on the upcoming Lego Movie. Is the game supposed to be any good? A quick movie tie-in? I haven't heard anything about it.

mattysemo247 02-06-14 08:52 AM

Not sure, but I'm interested as well. The movie is also getting great reviews (98% w/ 41 reviews so far)

I purchased it sight unseen using GCU from Best Buy. It shipped today but I'm saving it for my son's birthday in March.

I preordered the Lego Movie game for 360. Comes with movie cash and i see now a lego figure from Gamestop.

Quite a few positive reviews of the Lego Movie game, but there appear to still be the same Lego game glitches that previous titles have: http://business.financialpost.com/20..._lsa=867a-78cd
