LEGO announced that they would be accepting submissions on the website Cuusoo for a potential Doctor Who set. Several projects are gaining support, but Cuusoo stated that the first one to reach 10,000 supporters takes priority.

With original and beautiful animation, incredibly witty and pun-fulled humor, and an all-star lineup of voice actors, The Lego Movie was a total home run for Game&Comic:


Game Informer recently announced its latest cover story which reveals TT Games’ new title, Lego Marvel Super Heroes. This came to a surprise for many gamers, since TT Games already developed two DC Universe Lego titles. As a Marvel fan myself, I was ecstatic to hear the news. I haven’t played a Lego game in years, so maybe this title would push me to play the other ones, like Lego The Lord of the Rings. As I began to think of all the games I’ve missed, I wondered what other franchises could be made into Lego games. I came up with some ideas (most ridiculous) that I believe would make perfect transitions into the Lego world. Check them out, and let us know what you would like to see Lego-fied.

In the wake of the successful superhero movies and other pop culture phenomena, LEGO followed suite by releasing its line of superhero play sets earlier this year.  In my opinion, these sets are a fantastic move on LEGO’s part.  What a great way to bring the superhero culture to a different industry.  The mini-figures area incredibly well-done.  The likeness to the real thing is uncanny.  However, these sets have been immensely popular.  The sets feature Marvel’s Avengers, DC characters such as Batman and Superman, and even the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have made their way into LEGO form.  The sets have been selling very well, so be sure to pick them up if you are interested!  Below, you will find images featuring some of the sets:


Today is a big day for many gamers: Call of Duty Black Ops 2 and LEGO Lord of the Rings finally hit store shelves. Black Ops 2 has already been receiving fantastic reviews by other gaming sites, and LEGO Lord of the Rings will probably get high scores too.

But that’s not the real news for the day. According to the Game Informer website, both games have been having major shipping issues.

What kind of issues, you ask? Well to start, LEGO’s latest adventure has been shipping demo discs instead of the actual game. Oops! So if you’re planning on picking it up today, check your game before you leave so you can get your money back.

Now for Black Ops 2. So far this seems to have only affected one person, but when a CoD fan put in his disc to download, he ended up with Mass Effect 2!  I can understand accidentally shipping a demo disc; mistakes happen. But shipping a game that is three years old AND belongs to a completely different publisher? That’s messed up.

So, if you’re buying either of these games today, make sure you check your discs!
