I’ve never been any good at building things with Legos. Following the step-by-step instructions in a prescribed kit was no problem, but as far as taking a pile of random parts and building the Space Needle, it’s hopeless. Yanking things apart was always my specialty. Maybe that’s why I find such joy in this ever-expanding universe of Lego adventure games: any universe in which most problems can be solved by two players teaming up to shatter toys is my kind of place!
Luckily the next game is right around the corner: Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is due for release in just two weeks, June 19th, on the 360, PC, PS3, Vita, Wii, DS, and 3DS. We’ve got a whopping thirty screenshots rolling out of E3 to herald its release, plus two new pics and some preliminary box art for October’s Lego Lord of the Rings. You shouldn’t have much trouble telling them apart, but just in case, remember that fantasy heroes have beards, and super heroes don’t. Easy!
