    So who here owns any of the lego series of games, well this might interest you in you like them, in a few months they're releasing lego indiana jones on the wii to coexist with the new movie. I also heard of a lego batman for the new batman film not sure if it will be available on the wii tho. Your thoughts please

    Both of them will be on the Wii, unless something has changed since I last looked.

    not claiming that you said differently but just incase you didn't know, from what i've read the Batman game will cover pretty much the entire batman timeline, and the indy game will cover previous movies but not the new one. I'm happy about both those facts.

    really, thanks for telling me that, i thought they were just going to cover the new films, but the whole sagas that makes it sound pretty good, that should give at least a couple days of hardcore gaming lol

    As long as the game isn't bad, I don't really care. IMO, there are a lot of other game franchises and concepts that are guilty of "cashing in" to a greater extent than the Lego games. (if they choose to continue making them)

    I personally thought Lego Star Wars Complete Saga was a better overall game than SMG. *shrug*

    yeah i was very please about it, i read it in (i think the most recent but maybe last months) Game Informer. If i remember to bring it to work tomorrow i'll scan the article and post it, unfortunately though the scanner here only does black and white so i'll see how it comes out.

    if you have a gamestop by you, get their discount card it's $15 one year, you get 10% off of used games or something and some other stuff but you also get a 1 year subscription to Game Informer Magazine. if you use the store relatively often to buy used games it is completely worth it since once you spend $150 in used games it ends up paying for itself.

    i think the lego games can be overdone way to fast... Starwars awsome... indiana jones awsome... but to go as far as batman.. might be too main stream...

    i think alot of lego star wars players are people that like the films they are about, and are part of the cult following tied with the film... parents that grew up with these classic films buy these games for there kids to play as well...

    once you start putting out newer movies, or less "cult like" movies its going to kill the franchise... granted its kinda dumb to do it about something lego isnt connected with... but they could do something else...

    a batman or spider man lego game i dont think will be as big of a hit, unless they dont tie them in so closely with the movie.. if they keep it Retro style like the pics ive seen... Then it might go over well but wont touch the sale levels as the others...

    it would just be stupid to release everything in lego's "even if they have lego characters" when they dont do great on there own.. Harry potter,sponge bob,avatar,bob the builder,thomas & friends... these wont be huge lego hits..

    lol ill bet on it...

    yeah i agree. The SW was really fun, and IJ looks really good, but they shouldnt whore Lego out.

    I saw the Lego Batman one while searching random images on Google. Looks like I'll be getting it.

    I have 1 Lego game (and it's horrible) for my N64: Lego Racers.

    As long as it's not based on the movies, I think it could be real entertaining. Having a lego Batman/Robin (2 player possibility) swinging around Gotham on batarangs should be fun. Criminals would have their lego pieces fall apart once they were defeated. Even the batmobile/batwing would be a nice twist using the lego environment. I think the nunchuk would be a great control scheme, use it to cycle through items in Batmans utility belt, like the Batarang, and tap Z to throw it.

    Spiderman I'm not so sure about, but maybe it could work. I'd like to see Maximum Carnage again, like on the old SNES game, or atleast a twist of all the enemies as they were in the comics, not the movies.

    and here's the article i talked about earlier, sorry i scanned the full page and just didn't feel like editing the picture. The part about the upcoming games(lego universe, lego batman, and lego indiana jones) is at the bottom. Kind of hard to read due to the crappy scanner at my office but it's definitely readable lego.jpg_p01.jpg

    if i get my hands on a color scanner or if i find my camera charger i'll get you guys a more readable copy... sorry
