Remember how dark and grim Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel movie was? With its dull color pallet, zero humor and zero chemistry in its cast? Yeah? Well Lego: Marvel Superheroes is the exact opposite of that.

With its fun, bright, colorful and light hearted game play Lego: MS is sure to be enjoyed by all.

It’s quite the comical affair as an unknown villain (probably Thanos) along with Doctor Doom and Loki are out to find these magical “Cosmic Bricks”. They’re really just big lego pieces but hey, it goes with the theme of a Lego game. Now it’s up to the entire Marvel universe to stop this oncoming threat.

There are dozens and dozens of super heroes to choose from. At the beginning of a level you’re assigned two heroes to team up and take on that task, which makes for some great co-op fun and in the level there are certain things only certain heroes can do. This adds tremendously to the replay value and perfectionists who want to go back and replay levels.

The gameplay itself is very basic with just one attack button and one action button. Each level has a specific puzzle to it that only the heroes you’re assigned can figure out. For example: One level has Captain America and Mr. Fantastic teaming up to take down Dr. Octopus who has taken over the Fantastic 4’s base. After defeating his minions, the player can use Mr. Fantastic to squeeze through a grate and pull down a lever which Captain America will throw his shield at, unlocking a door.

It’s the little fun things like that, which make this game worthwhile. There are a TON of unlockables, too. From unlocking new superheroes, to finding power ups, to PLAYING AS STAN LEE and making him Hulk out. There’s even character creation, incase you ever wanted to be a Lego superhero.

If you have a few hours to kill want some good, clean fun. Look no further. Lego: Marvel Superheroes is an extremely fun side step from all those gritty, bland and boring games on the market. Yeah, I’m looking at YOU Call Of Duty.

And don’t think the game is strictly for kids. I’m 25 and I’m enjoying it… though I am a big kid.

Blah Blah Podcast Episode 2

I know this is a late post (still unemployed and constantly looking for work) but the guys and I recorded our second podcast

Here

We’re slowly but surly finding our ground on what we’re trying to be. Kyle is for games, Shaun is for movies and I’m stuck in the middle making for lots of arguments and debates.

Our third episode is scheduled for the end of August with a debut on iTunes coming shortly.

Happy Video Game Day!

So apparently every July 8th is national video games day. Here here! What’ll you be playing? For myself, I’ll be diving into some more of Wolfenstein: The New Order and Watch Dogs.

 

So in other news, it seems that Beyond: Two Souls is getting a remastered version a la The Last of Us. The full story can be found here

Now, I personally hated Beyond: Two Souls. It had poor gameplay, a laughable story, was full of inconsistencies and most of all it was flat out boring. Also, I didn’t even think it warrants enough sales for a remastered edition like The Last of Us does. Anyway, what a way to celebrate Video Game day.

Which of these is the most Underrated?

Poll.

 

Let me know why!
