Clean Yourselves Up with the LEGO The Hobbit Launch Trailer (You Dirty Hobbitses)

LEGO game launches are becoming more regular than the seasons themselves.  The LEGO Movie Videogame has only been out for a few weeks, but hot on its tail is LEGO The Hobbit, out now on most platforms you would wish to think about.  Almost by coincidence a launch trailer for the game has also been released.

LEGO The Hobbit Gets a Release Date

The LEGO games have glommed onto a number of big-name franchises over the past decade, including The Lord of the Rings. A release for The Hobbit was basically a "no duh" thing, but the game missed an opportunity for a simultaneous launch with the second movie. Now, the official release date has finally been set for LEGO The Hobbit: April 8th in North America and April 11th in Europe.

So many layers, it's like Inception

LEGO. Movie. Game. Launch. Trailer.

The LEGO series has become a staple element of many Co-Optimus reader's gaming diet, with their hours of 2 player local co-op entertainment.  However, until now we have been familiar with the properties the games are based on.  Thankfully, the same can probably be said of The LEGO Movie Videogame, the film just made over $69 million in its first weekend!

As Seen in Screens - The LEGO Movie Videogame

I said LEGO were crazy to produce a toy made out of blocks.  I said they were mad if they thought a computer game of these blocks would work.  In the end, they drove me to insanity with The LEGO Movie Videogame; a game, of a film, about a bunch of blocks.  I will sooth my troubled mind with some new screenshots.

Community Poll: 2013 Co-Op Game of the Year

Once again it's time for the Co-Op Game of the Year awards.  This is our sixth year for our awards, choosing the best cooperative game in the industry. (2008200920102011, 2012).  Like last year we've split the voting between two categories this year - AAA Games and Indie games. Despite two new console releases, almost none of the new games have made our list of notable co-op games. It's a slight disappointment that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are no shows, but hopefully that changes next year.

Shocker: It looks a whole lot like a Lego game. Check it out.
