LEGO The Incredibles officially announced

The internet is dark and full of leaks. LEGO’s next entry into the world of video games is The Incredibles, which was unofficially revealed earlier this month. This will be Pixar’s first entry into the world of LEGO – odd how they never entertained the idea of LEGO Dimensions – and it ties in neatly to this year’s cinematic release of The Incredibles 2.

“The Incredibles franchise, full of super-powered characters, adventures and teamwork, combined with all of the humour, puzzle-solving elements and unexpected surprises of LEGO®games makes for the perfect combination for players,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. “With LEGO® The Incredibles, fans can experience the non-stop action from both movies while fighting crime together as a super hero family.”

The game aims to recreate the scenes from both movies, so won’t release until July 13, 2018, which is the same day that The Incredibles 2 opens at the cinema.

Once again, it seems that the newest titles in TT Games ever-growing portfolio of LEGO titles will feature couch co-op gameplay. While it’s great that we still see this level of support for co-op, I would so love for the titles to one day get some form of online multiplayer/co-op.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two Review

epicmickey2

After reviewing Toy Story Mania, my expectations for Epic Mickey 2 were pretty low; if Disney were prepared to hand out one of their most popular series’ willy nilly then what hope was there for their golden egg, Mr Mickey? Thankfully Epic Mickey exceeded all my, frankly, very low expectations and is an experience that both children and adults alike can enjoy, despite being rough around the edges.

Disney Pixar: BRAVE The Video Game Review

“If you could change your fate, would ye?” – if you haven’t heard the annoying commercials by now for Disney Pixar’s movie Brave, then lucky you, but for those who are more than aware of the grinding Scottish accent of that red-haired child there is a videogame version…and unfortunately that voice is present throughout the whole complete game! Despite my personal annoyances and over use of the mute button, I found the gameplay quite surprising, enjoyable and reminiscent a little of the days of Crash Bandicoot on the PS1…but that voice is irritating!
