Tweet of the Day, You Know Why You Can’t Play As George Lucas in LEGO: SWTFA? edition.

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?

Less than a month to go on LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

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?

Movie of the Week/ Honest Trailer: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is making its way to me even as we speak, and cannot wait cannot wait cannot wait. In the meantime, check out the Honest Trailer below. Which has spoilers, for anybody who has somehow managed to get this far without either seeing the film, or finding out about the spoilers anyway.

And so, adieu to Guardians of the Galaxy.

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out on 06/28/2016.

:sigh: Fine. Let me go get my wallet.

Everybody form an orderly queue.

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!

My spoiler-free review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Bottom line: It Did Not Suck. Also… :JJ Abrams waves his fingers: There were no Episodes I through III. Mind you, there was also virtually none of the Extended Universe that all the true Star Wars fans* know, and I don’t know how much of the former counter-balances the latter for hardcore fans. For myself, I had an excellent time, and there was a bunch of stuff in that movie that I didn’t anticipate at all.  So… good job with not giving spoilers, Internet!

PS: Hell yeah you should go see this flick. As I said on Twitter:

*Look, I’m a nerd and a geek and a SF fan.  I’ve watched the movies and played a bunch of the video games. But I don’t pretend to be steeped in the Knowledge the way that some people are.

Well put me in overshoes and call me a duck.

Maybe… maybe it won’t suck like we’re all afraid (secretly or not) it’s going to.
