If you have read any of my LEGO game reviews in the past, you will know that I think slapping a popular franchise into another popular medium (i.e turning Jurassic Park into LEGO) is simply lazy, especially if it doesn’t try to innovate or create something original with the source material.  My beef with Travellers’ Tales is that they like to take a popular franchise, make it LEGO, and do absolutely nothing else. There are only so many times using LEGO characters is appropriate or even enjoyable, and that ship has certainly left the dock on this one...

There were plenty of good projects this week, two out-shined the rest though. Devils Share looks pretty damn creepy, but there was no way I could look past Foxtails whimsical and magical trailer and screenshots. Leah leaves her world in pursuit of something more which lands her in a strange and wonderful world of beauty and danger...

This week in Greenlight Gold, I take a look at the adventuring, side-scrolling, Giraffe packing world of Super Adventure Pals 2. This does more justice to Adventure Time than the licensed games have ever been able to produce. You can play the first one for free which I can say is a big bonus for anyone interested in the game or on the fence about it. It's link in bellow so make sure you play it!..

I had heaps of fun playing J-Stars, it took well over 5 hours to kick through Luffy's story arc alone which is pretty impressive. I built up a solid deck of cards and bought a bunch of extra slots for different deck builds by the time I finished writing and recording this review, so I can honestly say it can be some what addictive!..

LEGO Jurassic World is certainly one of the worst movie tie ins that Travelers Tales has worked. Could that still mean that it is a decent game, I mean, it is Jurassic World after all! You'll find that the more often a company releases a game in a series (i.e. Cod, Battlefield, LEGO) the harsher I am. If you are going to release a game so often (three LEGO games this year last I checked) then you damn well better have the ideas and gameplay to back up the three price tags!

As you would probably know, at E3 this year Microsoft announced that the Xbox One would be backwards compatible with a small handful of 360 titles with more being rolled out in updates over time.

We recorded this episode with echo location, you can hear the crystal clear reverberation of our voices in the cavernous lounge room. Frank and I play some LOADOUT, a bad ass shooter that we had to create NTSC accounts on PSN to obtain since it is unavailable here in Australia. But when there is a Frank, there is a way, because he knew that we could make an account and I did not...

This week is looking at a horror game of the survival verity. I was feeling pretty run down this week so I apologies for the lower than preferred quality. It took about twenty minutes to do one take of the thoughts section and had to cut like 15 minutes out of it. Anyway, enjoy the video, the game looks bad ass!..
