Alex Toy Reviews – Minecraft Skeleton Attack Playset (Part 1)

We’re back with another Lego playset to build! This time we’re combing Alex’s love of Lego with his love of Minecraft with the Skeleton Attack set! It is easily the biggest one we’ve build so get ready for several parts. Enjoy!

 

Alex Toy Reviews – Bendy and the Ink Machine Playset

Alex only had one request for his birthday party this year. That the theme be Bendy and the Ink Machine. We don’t play PC games so he’s never even played the game. He’s just seen videos on YouTube. Still, he loves Bendy and knows all the other characters. We went all out on the decorations and of course it carried over to the presents. There is still only so much Bendy merchandise but the coup de gras was a faux Bendy and the Ink Machine Lego set. It was pretty impressive. As always the boys wanted nothing to do with following the instructions but I got them to agree to putting it all together one time before having their way with it. Enjoy!

THQ Has a Lot of Faith in Metro: Last Light

THQ must be expecting really big things from their upcoming FPS, Metro: Last Light. To help announce it, they have released this live-action short film titled, “Enter the Metro.”

THQ gave a little more detail to the game:

“The Moscow Metro. A monumental feat of Soviet engineering, with a dark secondary purpose – to serve as a refuge in the event of an atomic attack. As the Cold War thawed and the threat of nuclear annihilation seemed to fade, this purpose was forgotten – except by a few, waiting for the signal, ready to open the vaults… the last refuge for the remnants of mankind.”

So Metro: Last Light is a first person shooter set in a post apocalyptic Russia. You play a guy, that used to be a baby in this sequel to Metro 2033 (which I’ve never heard of). That’s pretty much all I got so far. I’m sure we can expect a lot more at E3 in a couple of weeks, but THQ must really consider this to be a big deal if they spent the time and money to make this awesome film to promote it. Here is some cover art too while we’re at it:

Watch the New ‘Star Trek’ Game Teaser

Reverb Games has released a trailer for their new Star Trek game. Check it out:

If you haven’t guessed already it looks like it will be a basic 3rd person shooter with some platforming thrown in. Also if you’re worth your weight as a Trekker then you’ll also notice that this game is based on the new movie, not the TV show. That’s really the only way for a Star Trek game to go the full action route, as the TV show never had this much going on.

We were also sent some concept art for the game, which you can also see here.

The game will be out early next year and will be available on all platforms.

So what do you think? Are excited for this game or do you think it’ll just be another mindless movie tie-in? Go where none of our readers have ever gone before, and sound off in the comments below!

Star Wars: The Old Republic (NYCC)

Nerds and geeks alike have been waiting for Star Wars: The Old Republic to come out for over 3 years now. On December 20th of this year, all those dorks can stop waiting. BioWare is essentially looking to make this MMO everything Star Wars: Galaxies wasn’t. I spoke to BioWare producer Cory Butler about classes, pvp, and voice acting:

Shoot Many Robots demo (NYCC)

We’re getting back to our New York Comic Con coverage (there is still plenty) with Shoot Many Robots. Published by Ubisoft, this side scrolling shooter by Demiurge Studios is best described as a 4-player, run-n’-gun RPG. Think Metal Slug with online co-op. I spoke to developer Josh Glavine about what sets the game apart. Check it out:

I also got to demo the game at the booth. The version I played seemed a bit overpowered but there is a lot of mayhem and plenty to do. I was rocking a flame thrower and a pet carrier that dropped time bombs. See for yourself:

Shoot Many Robots will be made available for download on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC in 2012. A worthwhile purchase for sure.
