Details on the storyline for the LEGO Batman game along with info on playable characters has materialised in the wake of the first teaser trailer hitting the 'net.
Obviously you slip into the Caped Crusader's boots - and sidekick Robin's - and crime-bust in what we're promised is an "interactive" LEGO Gotham City (whatever that means), but Warner Bros. has whispered in our shell-like ears that players will additionally get to control villains in the

The first official teaser trailer has appeared online for LEGO Batman.
The second LEGO tie-in from the studio (and with LEGO Indiana Jones on the way) carries the same old PR tag-line, with TT hoping to take both franchises "and make something unique."
Well Star Wars wasn't all that original, but it was certainly bloody good fun (and you can get the missus to play it as well).

Following its extremely positive reception, BioShock is being eyed as a major new franchise by 2K Games parent Take-Two - which is already talking sequels.
The publisher's recently spoke of the possibility of hitting "roughly" a new BioShock release every two years.
"I would say, probably, roughly an every-two-year schedule would be optimal. And if you look historically, that has been largely the case with GTA, and I'd expect we'd apply roughly the same strategy to BioShock

Yes, despite his alarming similarity to Lost's burly surgeon, Jack - cropped hair, khaki shirt, linebacker shoulders - the leading man in Ubisoft's Lost Videogame is a newbie. He's a fresh character for the game, an American called Elliot.
Any more info, we hear you ask... Well, in true videogame cliche style, Elliot has the misfortune to be afflicted with amnesia. However, given the flashback-heavy format of the show, we're hoping your slowly returning memory will provide some
You wouldn't believe the smiles spreading around here when LucasArts announced plans for an Indiana Jones LEGO game. It's the one series of movies (after Star Wars) that we've been itching to see brought to the world of plastic bricks.
We know the game will cover all three existing Indiana Jones movies, but to date we've only been given a sneak glimpse of scenes from the films that will make the transition to the LEGO world.
So, putting on our dirty brown fedora and pretending we're hot shit
The recently released Resident Evil 5 trailer is currently causing a storm of debate across the internet after one critic - a single, solitary person writing on a blog - fingered the game as being racist in its depiction of black people as "inhuman savages" and for the fact that a white man in military clothing is employed to destroy them. It's an interesting opinion, certainly, but one that we happen to think is wrong.
While a cursory glance at Resident Evil 5 may give the impression that
LucasArts has unveiled LEGO Indiana Jones: The Videogame (working title) and you can see the first trailer of the game right here.
Developed by Traveller's Tales (the same team responsible for LEGO Star Wars) LEGO Indy will be very much along the same piss-taking lines based on the first three Indy movies (not the fourth). Just in case you didn't buy the box set as soon as it came out, that includes Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom and Last Crusade.

LucasArts has announced that everyone's favorite professor of antiquities, Indiana Jones, is receiving the LEGO treatment for summer 2008. The game's first trailer shows that LEGO Indy will use the drop-in drop-out feature for co-op gameplay that made the LEGO Star Wars series so enjoyable. But who else besides Indy would we really want to play as?
Here, in no particular order, are eight characters from the Indiana Jones trilogy that we think would make the best “buddies” in the
Earlier we brought you the first gameplay details from Lost the videogame. Today, we've got the first ever footage for your hungry eyes, including real in-game action. Just point your eyes down.
Do you play as Jack? From the looks of things, we'd have to guess that you do - the chap doing the running and exploring thing here sports the same Gap/Old Navy style and cropped black hair. But enough of our speculation - what do you think? Head to our forums now and blow off some word-steam.
