Okay, the trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has me a bit excited. I have gotten a bit jaded on the whole Traveller’s Tales LEGO games in the last couple of years. While they add in new mechanics with each generation, the new stuff hasn’t always sat well with me while the old stuff hasn’t changed much. But then I watched this.
That was pretty cool, very much in the sort of humor that Traveller’s Tales like to inject into their games.
And the whole thing got a bit better when I noticed at the end of the video, the supported platforms include the PlayStation 3.
That is pretty much the only platform I have that could run the game, since their LEGO games are really unsatisfying for me on the PC. I suppose I could get it on the 3DS. That probably wouldn’t be so bad. But it likely wouldn’t be as satisfying as having it on our TV.
And, finally, there was this bit of news that the game would bridge some of the gaps between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.
That is not as crazy as it might sound. Playing the original LEGO Star Wars games was not only fun, but it was a really good way to bone up on locations, characters, and events. Playing through the now incorrectly named LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga was almost like taking an undergraduate course in Star Wars.
Anyway, it is coming our way on June 28th. We might have to get this at our house.
