That’s right, they couldn’t lick that “immediately start giggling and run George Lucas straight off of the nearest chasm. Over and over and over again” bug. Real tricky one, that. On the bright side: instant DLC, am I right?
Just wait until they go full throttle with the toy line. On the other hand, that assumes that this show will take off. On the gripping hand: LEGO has itself a nice little moneymaker with these videos. A nice little moneymaker. Kids eat up this stuff with a spoon…
Right now I’m debating on what to do about this Season Pass thing. The game is actually for my kids, because I don’t have time to play the games that I have now; but I don’t think that they’re going to notice if there isn’t extra content. But I’ll notice, and even though I’m not going to play the game I’m still going to maybe get a little twitchy if it’s missing stuff. I mean, I have to restrain myself from buying more Disney Infinity game worlds even though I know my kids won’t play them because they’re all about the Toy Box.
I’m actually kind of impressed at this particular neurosis of mine. At least I’m not phoning it in, hey?
PS: The heck of it is, I never get a chance to play these games. Fortunately, my kids are luckier. And just wait when they start porting over all this stuff to LEGO Dimensions. I know that it’s claimed that they’ll never do that, because of Disney Infinity* but remember: Disney wants your MONEY. In as many ways as possible.
*I need somebody to give me a really good goram reason not to go buy that RIGHT NOW. I mean, shoot, the Xbox is downstairs now! Out of sight, out of mind no longer works!
I’d say who sent that to me, except that I’m not really sure that they actually want to take credit for that. I mean, don’t get me wrong: Lego Star Wars is a great video game; just… not worth keeping around as a body decoration for, well, the rest of your life.
