LEGO City: Undercover Preview

We built this city with LEGO bricks!

Lego City was announced at last year’s E3.  Initially the concept was a curiosity; gamers and journalists alike were unsure of exactly what we would expect from the title once it was formally revealed.  Nintendo’s press conference on Tuesday gave us all some clarity and presented an open world, story driven game that will be the Lego brand’s most ambitious video game title yet.

Developed by resident Lego developer TT Games and published by Nintendo, Lego City: Undercover is a Wii U exclusive and will be available on or around the system’s launch.  Players will take the role of Chase McCain, a legendary undercover detective with a penchant for clever disguises. 

McCain is on the trail of Rex Fury, a criminal mastermind riding a crime wave through Lego City.  The Wii U GamePad will come in handy when it comes to taking him down, as it will be used as your principle “police gadget.” You’ll be able to scan crime scenes for hidden clues, and even find criminals amongst the throngs of Lego civilians.  More traditional usage of the controller will be implemented as well, having it display a consistent city map that the player can add waypoints to with a simple touch.

Lego City is a huge open world that is just begging to be explored, and possibly constructed/destroyed as necessary.  Just like your less family friendly Grand Theft Auto series, McCain will be able to get around using a variety of transportation methods – being able to drive down the streets or fly over the skyscrapers in one of the game’s more than 100 different vehicles.

We’ll have more information on Lego City: Undercover for the Wii U as it becomes available.

Duck Hunt Review Rewind

Duck Hunt is an interesting relic of times past and one that I have conflicting feelings about.  While it was my earliest NES memory and no doubt fun from what I can remember, it also hasn't aged quite as well as I would have hoped.  But sometimes, that's just how it goes with the games we played as children.  I suppose the biggest letdown is realizing that the game simply isn't as stimulating to me as it once was, mostly due to its limited nature.  At its core, you're just shooting the same objects round after round until you fail to reach the required quota.  Be that as it may, Duck Hunt's importance in Nintendo's history cannot be overlooked.
