I am currently in the middle of playing Fallout 4 and it is the furthest that I have made it in any Bethesda game so far. My biggest problem often is that I get distracted by the side quests or I get so overwhelmed with what it is possible to do that I just never seem to get anywhere. My problem is that I like to complete all the quests and find all the things, which could practically take forever in most Bethesda games.
In Fallout 4 they have really given me a sense of purpose both in the main mission and with the side quests. The people of the Commonwealth trying to carve out better lives for themselves and their family. Then there are all the people, creatures, and things trying to make those lives a little more difficult. It is driving me to want to do more, but it can get so easy to get distracted. I am curious how much further I need to go on the main quest because there are so many other things that can be done! For someone who likes to complete all the quests it is a real struggle.
Maybe it’s just me, but the hard part about talking about this game might actually be avoiding the all caps response… like OH MY GOD THIS GAME LOOKS AMAZING HOW DID THEY EVEN?!?!?!?!
I’ve started following them on Instagram, and it’s just increasingly breaking my brain. For one thing, the game looks like it is going to have access to basically all of the intellectual properties that have been Lego video games. Certainly Lord of the Rings, DC, and just about anything that made it into the Lego Movie. Also Jurassic Park.
However, it’s the new properties – ones that we secretly hoped would get their own individual games, or else never even imagined – that have me so excited for this game. So after the jump, have three amazing trailers for things that you’ll see in Lego Dimensions! And then I’ll lament the problem with the game…

David and I have been playing Lego Batman 3 or more accurately it should be called Lego Justice League. I mean all of the Lego games just keep getting better and better and this is no exception. The other thing that they keep doing is getting bigger and bigger in terms of location. This game brings us Brainiac and all of the Lantern Corps, which means that part of the game takes place in outer space and makes for some interesting places that you get to go.
In the game Brainiac is using the power of all the Lanterns to try and shrink the Earth to add it to his collection. At the same time all the various super villains have decided to take over the Watch Tower to try and ransom the earth to make Lex Luthor ruler. They happen to be on the Watch Tower when Brainiac shows up and the villains and heroes have to reluctantly work together or else there will be no Earth to fight over. It makes for a very fun story and you get to go to some new and interesting locations. They also added a few new features to the game, some good and some bad. Overall this is a great addition to the Lego Video Games and continues the DC universe nicely. Continue reading
