There are only three things certain in the this world; death, taxes, and the constant release of LEGO games. The "LEGO" name has appeared on over 40 video game titles since 1997. It's true, at least according to Wikipedia, and you're not going to argue with Wikipedia, are you? At least two more are slated for 2013, and they both look promising.
The LEGO series is venerable, and a tremendous success by any measure. Brick environments and LEGO-ized heroes coupled with pop culture thematic material is a recipe for success. As the series has aged, new twists and tricks have been added to formula, and for the most part, these additions have kept the LEGO series good, maybe even very good, but not great. So does LEGO Lord of the Rings have what it takes to make the first truly great LEGO game?
Greetings Stranger. You have come far to listen to my tale; a tale of intrigue, adventure, LEGO and incorrectly printed discs on 360.

Good journey to you all!

Many of us are still knee-deep in LEGO Batman 2, but Traveller's Tales is already hard at work doing the only thing they know: making another LEGO game. Luckily LEGO The Lord of the Rings looks just as ambitious as the last entry, with an amazing 85 characters and fully-voiced story sequences taken from the movies of the same name. One of those characters, Gollum, can be glimpsed in his kind of goofy-looking glory in this new batch of screenshots.
New DLC is available now for LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. The two new packs will each add five characters to the already massive roster. You'll be able to use these new super heroes or villains in the game's Freeplay mode.

The Villains Pack features Bizzaro, Captain Cold, Black Adam, Black Manta, and Gorilla Grodd.
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes will be different from other LEGO titles. I'll admit, I stopped paying attention to the LEGO games some time ago. I hear they're still great, but I have moved on. This new trailer has piqued my interest.
