If you didn't know, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens makes its debut on every gaming platform ever next week. To ensure it stays in the forefront of your mind, here's one last character vignette featuring everyone's favorite Vader fan boy: Kylo Ren. I'm glad for the bit of fun poking they have with Kylo in this. To...

Both Marvel Ultimate Alliance Titles May Be Coming to PS4 and Xbox OneJason Love

While the ratings do point to a potential release of the games on the consoles, they do not indicate how. It's quite possible that on the Xbox One, all three would be part of the Backwards Compatibility program, which just recently saw the addition of Portal 2 and Left 4 Dead. PlayStation 4 has its PlayStation Now program that lets you play select Playstation 3 titles on either a per-game basis or via a regular subscription, and it has also started releasing certain Playstation 2 games for direct purchase. Then again, and this is my hope, they could be remakes with some visual enhancements. I remember playing through a significant portion of both Ultimate Alliance games with my brother-in-law and having a great time, so I would love to see those make a return.

When you place the new "Creation Crystal" toy onto the new Portal of Power, you'll be taken into a series of character creation menus that let you pick you Skylander's Battle Class (e.g., Knight, Sorcerer, Bowslinger) that affect the character's abilities, its appearance and catchphrases, and its powers. All of this gets saved to the crystal so you can use that creation over and over again. Each crystal is single-use only, however, and is also of a particular element type, i.e., fire, water. So if you want to make a Fire Knight and a Fire Sorcerer, you'll have to buy two Fire-type Creation Crystals.

I have been a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for decades now, long enough to have read the comics before the iconic 80s cartoon. The franchise has had a long and generally successful history, and video game tie ins are a big part of that. Turtles in Time is in my top five arcade games of all time, and between me and my two boys, we’v...

The name and some art had been floating around for the past couple weeks, but the game listing page (here's the cached version of it) gave out all the pertinent details for the next big content update (though much of this was speculated already). In addition to new gear, a new light level, and a new raid, Guardians will embark upon new Story missions into the "Plaguelands" of Old Russia to fight off infected Fallen alongside Lord Saladin. This area will include a new social space and a new Strike mission as well.

When the fall comes around, things kick off with Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible "level packs," Harry Potter and Adventure Time "team packs," and an A-Team "fun pack." As a quick breakdown of what all of that means, the level packs include a new level, new character, and a couple new gadgets or vehicles, the team packs include characters and gadgets/vehicles, and the fun packs include a character and a gadget or vehicle. All of this new content will be compatible with the existing LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, so you won't need to buy anything but the expansions.

In just a few days, Grand Theft Auto Online will be adding in the "Further Adventures in Finance and Felony" update, which finally allows all you over-the-hill geezers to really invest in the youth. By that, of course, I mean a few punk kids willing to haul a highly illegal payload across state lines for little more than a handshake and a few cases of Ecto Cooler. According to developer Rockstar Games, this latest update will hit on June 7th and bring with it all new ways for you to spend those dirty, dirty clams.

Similar to how LEGO Dimensions has split up its various offerings in to "Level," which include a new level and characters to play, and "Character" packs, which only include new characters, the planned content for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be similarly split. Three level packs (Poe's Quest for Survival, First Order Siege of Takodana, and Escape from Starkiller Base) and four character packs (Prequel Trilogy, Freemaker Adventures, Star Wars: Rebels, and The Clones Wars) are slated for release once the game launches next month. Each of these will retail for $2.99 or you can pick up the Season Pass for just $9.99. The Season Pass will also include a special character pack, The Jedi Order.

If you're headed to San Diego Comic Con this summer and you're a Turtles fan, then you're in luck! The National Entertainment Collectibles Association (or NECA) is producing some exclusive TMNT figures for the convention that are based on the TMNT: Arcade Game released back in 1989. You'll only be able to pick these up at the convention, unfortunately. If you are headed that way, then you'll want to head over to the pre-order site to secure yours before the event.

You can pick up Alice, the Mad Hatter, and newcomer "Time" (played by Sacha Baron Cohen in the film) to use in the game's Toy Box mode. These will be some of the last new figures made for the game, with the next set, based on Finding Dory, marking the end to the series. It's a shame that a franchise like this has come to such an inglorious end. Not only because of the closure of Avalanche Studios and its 300 employees being put out on the street, but because it sounded like there were plans in the work to really revamp the title.

It's rather impressive that they've gotten all the actors, particularly Harrison Ford, to record new dialogue specifically for this game. Most of the LEGO titles thus far have just gotten voice actors that can do a rough impression of the more well-known versions of the characters, so it's kind of cool to see somebody flexing some kind of development/publishing/licensing muscle to bring these folks in to do some VO work.

Along with the main story adventures upon which you'll get to embark as you play, you'll also get treated to six new adventures that will star Poe Dameron, C-3PO, and other notable characters.
