Lego Games Event and Overview 

Laat week i was invited to cover a Lego Games event in New York City. The game demos that were being showcased was LEGO Worlds, LEGO Dimensions, and LEGO City: Undercover. 


The 20 minute demo presentation of LEGO City: Undercover showcased the updated version of the game as there were new features that has been added in along with an upscslaled resolution since it is running on current gen consoles (PS4, XBOX One) and i got a chance to try the game and the controls were much more smoother and satisfying this time and it is easy to play with children as well. 


LEGO Dimensions has brand new minatures for the game along with a brand new pack featuring The Goonies and Harry Poter which is releasing on May 9, 2017. Both if which will have their own levels and challenges and cutscenes as well. 


And finally, LEGO Worlds which was originally a STEAM early access game has finally arrived to consoles last week and i got a chance to try it for the first time. It is a very lot like Minecraft and with many updates that are coming along the way, it will be a huge success. I always thought that this is what a LEGO game needed to be where you can create anything you want at any time and now the vision has came to reality with this game. I have a review copy of the game which i will review this week as well.

24 The Complete Series DVD Box Set Overview 

On the lookout for a new box set to spend your evenings devouring? Today i recommend 24 the complete series (seasons 1-8, Live another day, and Redemption)


WHAT IS 24?

The concept is a simple one. The 24 complete series, features 24 episodes in each season, with all the episodes lasting for an hour each as we follow the life of Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) agent Jack Bauer.


Needless to say, these are fraught, tension-filled days, so there’s no sleeping and little time for eating. Throughout the show’s 8 seasons, we saw Jack battling presidential assassination attempts, nuclear bomb threats, deadly viruses and everything in between.

WHO IS IN 24?

Kiefer Sutherland starring as the aforementioned Bauer is the show’s only constant, appearing in every single one of the 24 complete series. Other regulars were Sarah Clarke (who also starred in Twilight) playing Bauer’s close colleague Nina Meyers, Elisha Cuthbert (The Girl Next Door) who played Bauer’s daughter Kim and Major League’s Dennis Haysbert is also a regular, playing President David Palmer.

The only other constants in the show’s life are Mary Lynn Rajskub, who played Chloe O’Brien, analyst at CTU Los Angeles, and Carlos Bernand, who portrayed Tony Almeida, another member of Bauer’s CTU.

WHY SHOULD I WATCH 24?

What set 24 apart from any other show was its format. All the events happen in real time, over the course of 1 day, giving us 24 hours (episodes) in a season. Don’t let the real-time element fool you, there’s no downtime in 24, it’s one of the most high-octane, thrilling TV shows in history, full of drama and action!

Toy Fair 2017-Dark Souls The Board Game

I had no clue that this game was being made until i saw it at Toy Fair and i was blown away. The board game started life as a humble Kickstarter project. In time, however, it amassed an army of backers some 31,178-strong. These rabid “Souls” and board game fans then proceeded to raise more than $5.4 million in crowdfunding. Now that’s a Kickstarter success story!


The Company behind the game is Steamforged games and it is a 1-4 player exploration and combat game. It comes with many great looking minatures, dice, boards, cards and much more for you and up to 4 people to begin playing. 

I was able to play in a boss battle against Dancer of the Boreal Valley (from Dark Souls 3) and i used both a Knight and Warrior to go against him. The Dancer’s actions are controlled by AI cards and your objective is to defeat him so you can advance to the next board. To do so, you have to have the best equipment and experience points avaliable. Your hits, dodges and blocks are determined by the dice and you will lose when both your stamina and health reach together. I was told that there was only about 5 people that actually defeated the Dancer since they started demoing the game back in the summer but I came close but i lost. When one player dies in the game, everyone else is sent back to the bonfire (or in this case, back to start) so it is recommended that you and your players strategize your moves before you make them. 


The Game comes out in April and i cannot wait to try this in full.
