First Launch: Lego The Hobbit

What’s up Gamers!! So last night after watching USA take down Ghana in epic fashion Vent and I went and popped in Lego: The Hobbit.  I have played (and 100%) most Lego games including Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings so I am very familiar with these games. 

We played through the first few levels and had a blast doing.  Loving some of the new features with placing the correct brick in the build mode to make it a bit more interactive and also the buddy up system for different attacks and special moves.  It does keep the same radonk humor that the Lego games are famous for as well as the stud, brick, and character collecting features.

The Lego games stories are not difficult…not even a little bit.  Acquiring some of the bricks can be a bit challenging, but after a little thought and ingenuity it can be figured out.  I remember when Vent had trouble getting orcs to fight him in Lego LOTR all because he was player 2, but that’s for a different time.

I use these games as a fun and simple break from the usual highly specialized killing games that we are all used to.  I highly recommend checking at least one out if you never have and I have very high hopes for this one in particular.

Boom…Game on Gamers…

My All Time Top 10…

Now this took some serious thought…I mean I have been playing videogames forever and in all different genres…to narrow it down to a top 10 is legitimately ridiculous.  But since I am Boomtown’s Finest I figured I would give it a shot…

  • 10. Final Fantasy 10
  • 9. ToeJam & Earl
  • 8. GoldenEye
  • 7. Mario Kart 64
  • 6. Assassin’s Creed (Series)
  • 5. Final Fantasy 7
  • 4. Battletoads
  • 3. Halo 3
  • 2. Borderlands 2
  • 1. Super Mario Bros 3

This decision was anything but easy.  In fact it was probably one of the hardest top 10s I have ever had to make and I kept switching, adding, and deleting until I finally narrowed it down to this list.  There are thousands more great games, but on a sheer enjoyment level and amount of time I put into these games I think my list is complete…

Boom…Game on Gamers…
