While this obviously isn't a 1-for-1 remake of the full fledged LEGO City Undercover title, it is a wonderful addition to the Dimensions world, and might ...

More Thoughts From Me #62: Alas, Playstation 3

Recently, I heard that Sony would be discontinuing the Playstation 3 in Japan. Its amazing that it took them this long, what with the Playstation 4 doing so well. I use to own the system, but traded mine in awhile back. I still miss the Playstation 3 to this day. There were a lot of wonderful games on the system. I thought that now would be a great time to look back at my Playstation 3 memories and the games…

 

LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack – LEGO Dimensions

Fresh of watching the LEGO Batman Movie, I was ready to jump into the world via LEGO Dimensions thanks to the great folks over at Warner Bros. in Canada. The movie was fantastic - not The LEGO Movie fantastic, but still really good and full of laughs - so I obviously had high hopes for the story pack.

LEGO Dimensions – Adventure Time Team Pack

We recently took a look at the Adventure Time Level pack, and thoroughly enjoyed what we got in the package. The world is beautifully detailed with that Adventure Time esthetic, and the gameplay itself is different enough to make it feel fresh, but still that classic LEGO action. The Adventure Time Team Pack doesn't add anything new in terms of environments, but brings to life more characters and vehicles from the Adventure Time franchise.
