Video games

You know that the guys who did Lego Star Wars are doing Lego Batman, right? If not, you should. Because both LSW games were bloody good fun, and the release of the combination on the wii finally gives me an excuse for all the lightsaber noises I make while playing games... anyway. Looks like Lego Batman is going to kick arse.

basically jonathan smith was going through all the characters who would be in the game including robin, batgirl and nightwing, and then praised the calibre of gotham villainy that they could choose from to put in the game. he went through a short list including the joker, catwoman and twoface, and said they were putting in as many of the weird and wonderful ones as possible. some kid in the front shouted out "man-bat!" and he said 'yes, man-bat, that's how low we're going', indicating that even the most obscure and rubbish of the rogue's gallery might get an appearance. which, considering lego star wars: the complete saga's huge character list (about 160), seems pretty likely to actually happen.

Wait, wait, wait. Wait. Wait. They're doing a Lego Batman?

Lego Batman, followed by Lego Indiana Jones.

Traveller's Tales are some kind of Lego gods...

Holy crap, that's amazing.

Man-bat is obscure?

I believe they're assuming "watched the movies, maybe saw some of the Bruce Timm animated stuff but didn't make a point of seeing more than a couple of episodes".

Though if they hired Bruce Timm, then I'd be a very happy man.

Pshaw, I want Lego Indiana Jones, damn it.

It's coming, but later.

Personally, I want the guys to hook up with Bruce Timm and the others who worked on the DC animated stuff. That'd be fantastic. One part Lego, one part City of Heroes, one part batshit insanity.
