What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Lego Marvel Super Heroes

I would never label myself a gamer. Hell, most modern consoles scare me. I’m only 30 years old but there was a point where I needed to adapt or die and lord knows I never made that jump. It didn’t matter though, because retro games and systems were more my speed anyway and are still what I enjoy playing the most. One day on a whim I decided to buy a Wii U, yea the controller looked stupid and cumbersome but I knew that if anything this console would be home to the new Mario Kart, Zelda, Smash Brothers and those deliciously retro styled Mario Brothers games they’ve been putting out recently. Even if those were the only games I ever bought it would be worth it. When I heard about Lego Marvel Super Heroes I thought I’d give it a try.

Being the Evil Geeks resident Lego fanatic and a Marvel zombie I had figured that this would at least be entertaining.  The only Lego video game I had previously played was one of the Star Wars games years ago which historically was a very early licensed property game for them. I remember thinking it was ok and the concept was cool enough, but it ultimately didn’t do much for me. While those thoughts were in the back of my mind, the idea that I could use a roster of marvel heroes was too much for me to pass up.

New Trailers revealed at E3 2013!

Afternoon Nerds!

E3 is upon us and that means that we get to see what’s in store for our video game futures! Three trailers hit the internet yesterday that are based on successful franchises, yet offer us a new take on them, so lets take a look!

LEGOMarvelSuperHeroes

First off we have LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is based on the wildly popular LEGO franchise where we’ve seen Star Wars, Batman, Indiana Jones, and even Pirates but this time it stars the heroes and villains from the Marvel U! In the story you work with Nick Fury as he calls upon heroes to save the world from the likes of Loki, Galactus, and more! From first look it appears that it’s heavily based on the movie universe (for the Avengers at least,) but I hope that there are a bunch of different skins available so I can assemble some 60’s heroes! The LEGO games are some of my favorites so this will definitely be on the top of my birthday or christmas list this year! LEGO Marvel Super Heroes will be available for all systems later this year and you can check out the trailer right here…
