Videogames


 

Lego Marvel’s Avengers

I absolutely loved the first Lego Marvel Game! It featured such an excellent open world of New York City and is loosely based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe on top of the Marvel 616 and Ultimate Universes. The developer, Traveller’s  Tales is known for its love for the source material of the franchises it handles. They  tend to include delightful little nods and touches here and there that tend to make fans smile every single step of the way. Look for that to be the case to here.

Comes out on: January 26, 2016 on Playstation 4, PS3, Xbox One, X360, Wii U, 3DS & PC
