Unfortunately, LEGO’s dash into the world of the Hobbit proved much the same and whilst I tittered every now and then, generally I was left almost as unfulfilled as I was by the movie on which this title is based. From the offset, it does its very best

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Preview – It’s out of this world! – Everybody Plays

Original article

When we finished up our LEGO The Hobbit[1] review just a few days ago, we ended on a question. With so many great games under their belt, and so many films given the co-op LEGO adventure makeover, where could developers Traveller’s Tales go next? To be perfectly honest, we weren’t expecting an answer until the giant gaming convention E3 kicks off in June – but instead, we received a top secret invite to a top secret event in a top secret part of the country, where, with the top secret curtains drawn and the lights turned down (almost like a bat cave, you might say) the studio revealed all about it’s out of this world plans for it’s latest game – LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.

In fact, out of this world is probably the most fitting phrase to use, as LEGO Batman 3 looks set to let the caped crusader (and plenty of other DC heroes and villains) boldly go where no man has gone before – into outer space…

Rather than being based on any films, the plot here is another original creation, which we’re promised will be an entirely legitimate reason to pull as many DC Comic goodies and baddies together for an interstellar adventure. With the Joker up to his usual tricks, the Justice League teaming up to fend them off, and a nefarious mastermind lurking in the shadows – the somewhat lesser known Braniac – the character list alone is already shaping up to be a who’s who of DC’s finest. In the single level we saw, Batman, Robin, Superman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman and The Flash all made appearances, alongside perennial baddies Lex Luthor and the Joker, Firefly and Cheetah. But while DC fans will doubtlessly appreciate the enviable character roster and fan service, knowledge of who everyone is is strictly optional here – with the game’s writing catering to new players, and plenty of slapstick comedy to keep things moving along, you’ll be able to follow the plot even if you’ve only ever heard of Batman.

First time!

Speaking of whom – sadly taking a more serious role than his LEGO Movie “my gossssh” rendition, LEGO Batman 3 looks set to build on the earlier games in several ways, bringing with it plenty of new Bat-features. The level we saw started off with a typically cheesy cutscene, in which the Joker and Lex announced they’d rounded up a veritable super baddie army in an attempt to take over a place called the watchtower – a space station by any other name. Ever alert to the call to action, Bats is raring to go – just as soon as he’s managed to make his way through his base to get to the Bat-rocket.

Starting off in the Bat Cave, which will serve as one of the game’s hubs (we’ll have more on that later), the notable changes came thick and fast. Perhaps most usefully, where you previously had to find special switches throughout the levels to switch between Batman or Robin’s super suits, now, you can do it on the fly. Simply hold one of the buttons to bring up a wheel, and you’ll be able to choose which outfit you want, with each having its own range of special powers and upgrades, and both Batman and Robin having some new fashions on show.

Robin’s latest stylish garments are the illumination suit, an outfit that essentially turns boy wonder into a battery powered boy lightbulb, but makes him rather useful for lighting dark passages; and the techno suit, which not only automatically grants him the intelligence required to crack computers, but also lets him call in a miniature “toy wonder” – a toy Robin on a hoverboard. Batman, meanwhile, looks fetching sporting the newest look in his collection, the Bat-spacesuit, which along with running on fuel canisters you’ll have to hunt out in the levels, comes packing both of this season’s must-have accessories – a jet pack, and a laser. You never know when you’re going to need it.

Blind as a bat. Ohhhh ho ho ho ho

As per tradition in the LEGO games, the level we saw seemed to offer the same mix of baddie bashing, stuff smashing, and basic puzzle solving we’ve come to love, with one tradition that’s carried over being hacking into PCs. With a locked door ahead, we switched to Robin’s techno suit and stumbled towards a computer to spark a hacking mini-game, which seems fancier than anything that’s gone before. Loading you into a Tron style, isometric maze, it’s up to you to try and stay on top of the platforms as they collapse, raise, or even turn into a Mexican wave, as you try to make it from one side to other. Do it successfully, and you’ll have hacked into the system, unlocking the door in the process. Quite why Batman has to hack into his own system is anyone’s guess, but with the job safely done, it was into the Bat-rocket, and off into the stratosphere – but not before accidentally roasting one of the Bat-ducks in the Bat-pond with the Bat-rocket’s Bat-thruster…

While recent LEGO games have had a pretty similar structure, LEGO Batman 3 looks set to offer something a little bit different different. Most recent LEGO games have had a kind of “open world” hub for you to explore at your own convenience, from The Hobbit’s LEGO recreation of Middle Earth, to the Avenger’s take on New York City in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Serving as both a handy way to get to each of the levels, and as a place they can stuff full of side quests and collectibles by the dozen, it’s been a reliable format, but LEGO Batman 3 looks set to shake things up. Instead of one hub world, the plan here is apparently to have several instead, with each being themed around a certain planet in the DC Universe. While our knowledge of planets in the DC world is somewhat limited, we do know that one of them will be a Green Lantern planet (for more on that, make sure you check out our exclusive interview[2]) – and each will have its own fair share of side quests and collectibles to be found.

But back to the task at hand. Now safely in outer space, the gameplay changed format somewhat markedly, transforming into a space shooter minigame that borrowed heavily from PS4 launch title Resogun. With the whole “Beyond Gotham” approach, apparently space-themed minigames and stages will be a more regular fixture in LEGO Batman – although they won’t all work quite the same as this one. Moving left and right, or up and down across a 2D plane that wrapped around a cylindrical station, all Batman had to do was defend himself against the Joker’s rockets (which are like normal rockets, just with a pair of chattering teeth strapped to one end), making use of his never-ending bat-laser, and the power ups at his disposal, including a smart bomb which wipes the screen clean. When playing in two player co-op, the second player will take over Robin’s ship as you team up against the baddies – but after clearing all the waves, boy blunder soon finds himself overpowered. Taking a Joker missile to the face in his ship, before somehow managing to get Batman blown up too when he tried to rescue him, things start to look bleak, before a passing Superman happens to fly past and save the day, with a little help from Wonder Woman in her handy spaceship.

LEGO-gun

Still, with the best part of the Justice League together (including Flash, who’s tagged along for the level), it was on to the space station, and working our way towards Joker and Lex. As usual in LEGO games, each of the super heroes has their own special powers, many of which you’ll need to rely on in order to finish the levels – or find secrets on later play throughs when you’ve unlocked a new character. In the space station, it wasn’t Batman’s spacesuit or Robin’s techno suit that came in the most handy, but actually the speedy Flash, who put his speed to good use on the, er, handy treadmills that have been left lying around. Jumping on board, and mashing a button to get up to speed, Flash can run so fast he causes the machine to short circuit, opening doors, destroying locks, and otherwise opening up other parts of the level. With the door open, it was on to the outside of the ship, as the gang continued their path to the top.

With enemies everywhere, and a fair amount of fire coming our way, it was clear that a bit of strategising would come in handy. While you can happily take the baddies head on, sometimes it’s easier if you can manage to distract them somehow – and that meant switching to Cyborg, to take advantage of his special powers. Like transformations. Able to transform into a number of special suits/modes, including a giant suit, which transforms him into an unstoppable big fig, as first seen in LEGO Marvel with the Hulk, Cyborg also has access to a stealth suit, which makes him completely invisible to enemies by turning him into that most commonly seen object on the side of a spacestation – a washing machine. Oh, and it has a built in laser, too. Walk, jump, or blast enemies making your way through the space station, and the baddies won’t pay you the blindest bit of notice, assuming you’re just an everyday, common or garden walking washing machine with a giant pulsating laser. Actually, that explains a lot. We were wondering where our washing machine had gone…
In traditional LEGO Batman fashion, though, it won’t only be the goodies that you’ll have at your fingertips. While we don’t want to go into too many details, the baddies in LEGO Batman 3 are probably more misguided than totally evil – and after you’ve reached a certain point in the game, you’ll be able to play as them too. While there’s no information yet on which baddies will be available (Harley Quinn and Bane would probably be a shoe in though), we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground for any new updates.

Either way, having seen the game running, this has shot straight to the top of our most wanted list, as many LEGO games do. Offering the same great co-op mix, the same drop-in, drop-out action, plenty of humour, and a plot that’s packed with nods to the DC fans, while being accessible to those who’re less clued in, this is shaping up to be another must buy LEGO game. Set for a release this Autumn – so not long at all, then – be on the look out for plenty of updates over the next few months. In the mean time, feast your eyes on the first trailer below:

Review: LEGO The Hobbit – Destructoid

Original article

Another month, another LEGO game. These things are starting to be more frequently released than yearly Call of Duty games. And with that frequency comes some caveats, such as this month’s title only including the two Hobbit films that have been released thus far.

Does that put a damper on the entertainment value found within? Only time — or reading on — will tell.

image

LEGO The Hobbit (3DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PSVita, Xbox 360 [reviewed], Xbox One, WiiU)
Developer: TT Games
Publisher: Warner Brothers Interactive
Release Date: April 8, 2014
MSRPP: $ 29.99 (3DS, Vita), $ 49.99 (PS3, Xbox 360, WiiU), $ 59.99 (PS4, Xbox One)

The long and short of it is, LEGO The Hobbit only encompasses An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug. Apparently, we’ll be seeing the final section of the game once the final film is released (though most folk know how the story goes, as I’m sure, like me, you had to read it in grade school).

That said, what is found within this game is more hit or miss than previous LEGO titles. You still have your typical romp around the levels, bashing enemies and smashing objects for LEGO studs, a whimsical version of the films recreated with the mini-figures (with voicework directly from the original films, just as in LEGO The Lord of The Rings), and the level design and plot mirror the source material almost to a fault from a pacing standpoint.

However this time through, the levels are a bit uneven. There’s almost too many things to smash, and not enough enemies to fight. Because of this, some levels can seem short, while still other can drag on far longer than they should. When smashing open items, you can now gather LEGO pieces, or mine them from items via a mini game, which you can save to use to build things later — which begs the question, why hasn’t this been included before now?

Most noticeable, however, is the lack of character diversity. While LEGO The Lord of The Rings had a wide range of characters, each with their own unique abilities, LEGO The Hobbit seems a bit more limited as far as choice, and sadly, this appears to be partially due to the source. The numerous different dwarves are all comical and unique…in the film. Here in the game, it’s really hard to tell one from the other and despite the game’s new addition of listing a character’s attributes or abilities on the menu screen, there’s not a lot to differentiate one from another.

Still, there is a good bit to like about the game as well. If you’ve enjoyed the many other LEGO adaptations, this one is not without it’s charm. The characters and backgrounds match the films well, and the game follows the story of the movies very closely, down to the questionable bonus material padding. Though again, being a bit limited by the original voicework may not allow for the normal LEGO slaptick-type humor, and a few scenes of real tension and whimsy from the films seem to fall a bit flat.

Of course, as stated before, the biggest disappointment is that the game isn’t actually complete. It’s a pretty safe bet that the final section of the game (now called “The Battle of the Five Armies”) will be offered via downloadable content, but considering the game itself is being sold at full price without it (especially on the next-gen consoles), I’m wondering if they’ll be offering it for free or not. I certainly hope so, as charging for an entire films worth of bonus content would be the most substantial — and potentially pricey — LEGO DLC of all.

image

When it comes right down to it, LEGO The Hobbit isn’t a terrible game, but it’s isn’t a terribly good one either. The LEGO formula may be finally getting a bit stagnant, and the new additions, while cool, may be too little, too late. If the final section had been included at retail, I’m not sure my opinion would have swayed much more in either direction, but it certainly is noticeable in it’s omission.

6.5 /10

Alright: May be slightly above average or simply inoffensive. Fans of the genre should enjoy them a bit, but a fair few will be left unfulfilled. Check out more reviews[1] or the Destructoid score guide[2].

LEGO The Hobbit Review – Everybody Plays

Original article

Full review

Parental Review

Hobbit, wizards, horses, rideable pigs and hairy, plastic feet. They may only be two films into The Hobbit trilogy so far, but that hasn’t stopped the team over at Traveller’s Tales getting their blocky hands on the latest Lord of the Rings films, and giving them a plastic make over. But while LEGO fans may be expecting more of the same, The Hobbit feels like the biggest step away from the familiar (and incredibly successful) LEGO formula in years.

When it comes to a LEGO game, you usually know what you’re letting yourself in for – co-op baddie bashing, block smashing, brick building fun, with enough basic puzzles and collectibles to keep you playing for forty plus hours. Head into a level, beat up some bad guys, smash some LEGO objects, rebuild the pieces into something usable, and work with your partner to shove things around a solve a puzzle, and you’re onto a winner – a familiar formula that we’ve come to know and love.

Whether you’ve seen the film or not, you’ll have fun here, as the cutscenes are fully voiced, so you can follow the plot.

LEGO The Hobbit, on the other hand, takes a slightly different stance. Perhaps because of the slightly older audience of the film, LEGO The Hobbit takes your standard LEGO game, and infuses it with role playing goodness in the heat of Mount Doom itself, forging the one LEGO game to rule them all.

While there are still fifteen levels to play through here, if anything, there’s less emphasis on them, as the focus instead is on exploring, joining together with your party of dwarves, and going on an adventure. Taking control of any one of nigh on a hundred characters from the film, from Gandalf to Gimli’s dad, you can team up with a friend to explore a gigantic (if slightly more plastic) rendition of Middle Earth, from the dark Mines of Moria to the city of Bree, to the sun-kissed waterfalls in the Elvish kingdom of Rivendell, with the self contained stages themselves feeling more of a side attraction to the “main event”.

Perhaps because of this change of focus, the levels here feel shorter than those that have come before, and activities in and around the world map feel more numerous. With the same drop-in, drop-out co-op as before, there’s still the same emphasis on teamwork here, with puzzles to solve, bosses to defeat, and collectibles to be found – you’ll just be doing much more of it outside of constrained levels when compared to before. With sixteen levels to smash, re-build, and puzzle your way through, you’re certainly not getting short changed – but there’s so much more to do in the world.

While much of Middle Earth will be inaccessible when you first start playing, as you progress through the story levels, and unlock more characters, more and more of it will unlock. Unlocking new characters is every bit as essential to seeing all that Middle Earth has to offer, as you’ll often find things only certain characters can do. Whether it’s a fountain of petals that shows only a female character can make the jump; a large, silver boulder blocking your path, that only someone who knows their way around a stick of dynamite can deal with; or an empty plant pot that’s just waiting for a dwarf with green fingers to come along, you’ll need to swap and change characters on a regular basis.

LEGO The Hobbit Screenshot

Can you figure out how to cross the bridge?

And that’s another area the game’s made a big improvement. Whereas on previous games, most characters only had one ability, or perhaps two if they were lucky, on the Hobbit each character has at least two or three abilities at their disposal. Handily, when you head to the character selection screen (by holding triangle, wherever you are in Middle Earth), it lists each character’s ability below their portrait, so you can be sure you’re choosing the right one. Whack a silver boulder with your sword, or fire an arrow at that unlit campfire in frustration, and the game will also prompt you with a picture of either the character you should switch to, or the ability you need. Handy stuff.

With each level you complete, you’ll also unlock a range of quests in Middle Earth, which range from the somewhat logical to the outright bizarre. There’s the bearded lady in Bree whose son runs the blacksmith’s shop (but seems to have disappeared), a concerned mother who wants to build her son a tree house – so long as it isn’t in a tree, as that would be too high up, and the fantastically bearded dwarf who’s sick of spiders crawling around his kitchen like they own the place – so he’s “going to crawl all over theirs – by which I mean, beat them up!”, there are loads of quests to complete – and plenty of humour, too.

As you complete each of the quests, you’ll slowly start to make some progress towards collecting the game’s many, many collectibles, with LEGO The Hobbit featuring nigh on 500 bits and pieces to find. There’s 32 red bricks (each of which unlocks a certain cheat or power-up), 32 mythril instruction sheets, which unlock equipment at the blacksmith, 250 Myrthil bricks themselves (which you take to the blacksmith), and 160 minikit pieces – with ten hidden in each level. LEGO games usually go crazy with collectibles – but even by their standards, this is packed with things to do.

LEGO The Hobbit Screenshot

Another great feature – co-op boats

And true to its new found role playing roots, there’s yet more stuff to collect, too. As you wander from the Misty Mountains to the Shire, bashing things as you go (after all, this is a LEGO game – where would we be without a little destruction), you’ll collect random bits and pieces, as a kind of resource system. From bits of wood to fish, bars of bronze, and priceless gemstones (which the dwarves with their giant hammers can help you mine), there’s loads to collect – which come in handy with certain quests. Asking you to gather enough resources before chucking them into a tardis-like bucket to build a giant LEGO kit, you’re then sprung into a mini-game that’s been carried across from the LEGO Movie game, where the game asks to find the part that comes next from a wheel of choices – which is often easier said than done.

Yet more collectibles waiting be discovered in the levels come in the form of the items that make up your treasure trove, a kind of role playing like inventory that lets you change your character’s weapons – only in typical LEGO style, it’s more funny than fatalistic. Whether you want to switch your sword out for a fishing rod, bug catching net, or more excitingly, a glowing hammer, or, er, some mythril dance boots and a bright blonde wig, there’s plenty of room for customisation. Oh, and did we mention you can even customise your horse? Pink spotty steed to the rescue!

Clearly aimed at an older audience to the earlier LEGO games, LEGO The Hobbit has more depth than ever before. Taking LEGO Lord of the Rings and building on it, adding more role playing, more quests, more collectibles, more co-op, and more fun, this is yet another must buy for anyone looking for some co-op fun. While it may have carried over some of the problems from the earlier games (the “dynamic” split-screen, for example, which intends to show you where your co-op partner is, but only makes the levels harder), almost everything that’s been changed here has made the game better. This is one you’ll be able to lose yourself in for hours. The only question is – where do they go from here?

The Hobbit and Philosophy

The Hobbit and Philosophy


A philosophical exploration of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved classic—just in time for the December 2012 release of Peter Jackson’s new film adaptation, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit is one of the best-loved fantasy books of all time and the enchanting “prequel” to The Lord of the Rings . With the help of some of history’s great philosophers, this book ponders a host of deep questions raised in this timeless tale, such as: Are adventures simply “nasty, disturbing, uncomfortable things” that “make you late for dinner,” or are they exciting and potentially life-changing events? What duties do friends have to one another? Should mercy be extended even to those who deserve to die? Gives you new insights into The Hobbit ‘s central characters, including Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, Gollum, and Thorin and their exploits, from the Shire through Mirkwood to the Lonely Mountain Explores key questions about The Hobbit ‘s story and themes, including: Was the Arkenstone really Bilbo’s to give? How should Smaug’s treasure have been distributed? Did Thorin leave his “beautiful golden harp” at Bag-End when he headed out into the Wild? (If so, how much could we get for that on eBay?) Draws on the insights of some of the world’s deepest thinkers, from Confucius, Plato, and Aristotle to Immanuel Kant, William Blake, and contemporary American philosopher Thomas Nagel From the happy halls of Elrond’s Last Homely House to Gollum’s “slimy island of rock,” this is a must read for longtime Tolkien fans as well as those discovering Bilbo Baggins and his adventures “there and back again” for the first time.

More Precious Items and Characters with LEGO The Hobbit DLC – Co-Optimus.com

Original article

Unlocking characters in LEGO[1] games such as LEGO The Hobbit[2] is one of the most time consuming elements, so how about some DLC that will unlock new characters for you by just paying for the privilege?  Not so sure myself, but check out the three new pieces of DLC anyway.

LEGO The Hobbit has continued the trend of co-op friendly LEGO games that cover almost every platform known to man, beast and/or hobbit.  The new DLC packs don’t add co-op elements or even new levels, but will allow you to play as different characters or don new articles of clothing.

Sounds like the old fashioned DLC of paying for horse armor to me, but perhaps one of the following will tickle your fancy:

The Big Little Character Pack – Strike a little fear and terror into the hearts of your foes with Baby Smaug, or enjoy a cameo appearance of Baby Gimli from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. The LEGO big figure Snow Troll is sure to shake things up and you’ll also have the chance to play as Bandobras “Bullroarer” Took or a Stone Dwarf from Erebor.

The Side Quest Character Pack – Take command of a LEGO big figures River Troll or Girion, the last Lord of Dale. The noble Elk will offer you transport wherever you desire, or you can charge into battle with the fearless Dwarf soldier.

The Battle Pack – Destroy Morgul LEGO with the Shadow Sword, equip yourself with Jeweled Mithril Armor of the finest Dwarven craftsmanship, or activate the Light Orb Shield for the ultimate protection. The Axe Guitar, Orc Cleaver and Orc Bow will make short work of your opponents, while a pair of Lake-town Boots and Smaug’s Feet will keep you adventuring in style! The Buddy-up Gloves allow you to smash through Buddy-up cracks solo, while Smaug’s Headdress and the Dwarf King Wig will ensure your presence is majestic at all times.

Each pack will set you back $ 1.99/£1.29[3] and should be available on most platforms now.  I think playing as a baby Smaug sounds like the best value!
