LEGO games for me used to be it or miss, depending on what platform you were enjoying them on. Home consoles were great because you had a big backlit screen you could see everything on, while handhelds were difficult for me because some games were dark in nature. I’m a big super hero fan so I tried to play a lot of the LEGO Batman games, but I could never seem to enjoy them as much as I was suppose to. I haven’t played a LEGO game in a while, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to. I stopped playing a few games before they started putting voice actors in them, and I really wanted to play LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. I started a Gamefly account a few months ago so I put it on there and I’ll eventually play it, but it may have to take a step back. The trailer for the new LEGO Dimensions game looks to have everything I love wrapped up into one neat package, more so than the actual LEGO movie.

The official synopsis of the game is as followed

In the game, there is an ancient planet at the center of the LEGO Multiverse inhabited by an evil mastermind, Lord Vortech. It is said that he who controls the Foundational Elements that this planet is built upon, controls all of the Multiverse. Lord Vortech has vowed to be that ruler, summoning characters from a variety of LEGO worlds to help him find these building bricks of LEGO civilization. Some have agreed, others have rebelled, and only the combined powers of the greatest LEGO heroes can stop him. When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO worlds, different characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings and The LEGO Movie are swept away. To save their friends, LEGO Batman, LEGO Gandalf and LEGO Wyldstyle journey to locations beyond their wildest imaginations, and they soon realize that Lord Vortech is summoning villains from across different LEGO worlds to help him gain control. As his power grows, worlds mix, unexpected characters meet and all boundaries are broken. Our heroes must travel through space and time to rescue their friends before the vortexes destroy all of LEGO humanity.

Come on people, the trailer shows LEGO Marty McFly blowing up someone with a guitar riff blasted from a speaker. This is seriously a game where I would gladly pay to just watch the cut scenes. I want nothing more to hang out in the old western time of Hill Valley and be Batman. It’s like you’re playing The Return of Bruce Wayne in video game form. I know this game is mostly DC, but if they ever were able to incorperate the Marvel universe and allowed Deadpool to be in it, I would throw all my money at it. There’s a good chance that I’ll actually buy this, just so I have something to build. I don’t care of I look like a little kid, this trailer have made me extremely excited.
