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).
So far we know pretty much bugger all about Batman, but we reckon it's safe to assume Robin, The Joker
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
Sony's annual E3 press conference opened with what could have been the biggest reveal of the entire show if it hadn't been leaked last week: the new $499 price of the PS3, as well as the introduction of a new $599 model that comes with an 80GB hard drive and a copy of online-enabled dirt racer Motorstorm. This left biggy-wig Jack Tretton (who began the event speaking through his character in the PS3 virtual world Home) to launch right into the publisher's game-centric, four-part
Vivendi is adding to the growing list of games due this autumn with the second game in the Legend of Spyro trilogy, subtitled The Eternal Night.
Some Ape King dude turns up at the Temple of Souls and starts acting all evil and stuff, predictably plunging the land into darkness.
Meanwhile, Spyro is having strange visions, and it's up to you to unravel the mysteries of these visions and defeat the Ape. In other words, more fire-breathing platforming antics.
There'll be new breath powers and
Freedom of speech? Bah! Who wants that? Games are clearly rotting humanity’s collective eternal soul and must be banned accordingly. The following collection of violent, titillating titles have offended censors all over the world. Some have been beaten to death by the banning bat for their gory deaths, others for displaying acts of girl-on-girl action, while one was even banned for having a two-headed cow. Really, just what is this

We're still 99 percent in the dark where LEGO Batman is concerned, but first artwork released suggests that the Dark Knight's sidekick Robin will be appearing alongside Bats in the game.
Look at the art - how cool is that?
What's currently confirmed about LEGO Batman is that a) it's being developed by LEGO Star Wars developers Traveller's Tales, b) is heading to multiple platforms and c) is due out in 2008. We can't wait. Seriously.
And we'll add a d), e) and the rest of the alphabet as soon
