    SDCC 2012 Hands-on Preview: LEGO Lord of the Rings

    Traveller’s Tales has developed some of the most creative parodies of big name series, from Star Wars to Indiana Jones to Harry Potter to Pirates of the Caribbean. One major movie/book series has been ignored thus far, and TT games has rectified this error with LEGO Lord of the Rings. When I first heard the rumor of this game, I nearly squealed out loud. I’ve been dying for a LEGO LOTR ever since they tackled the Harry Potter movies. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one. The people behind TT games are huge LOTR fans, and they have been wanting to do a LOTR LEGO game ever since their first LEGO Star Wars game. They hadn’t done it before because they wanted to make sure that they did it right, for themselves as fans, other fans of the series, and the fans of the LEGO games. From what I saw and

    Symantec’s Identity Safe helps keep me sane

    Have you ever noticed how many different passwords we have for the various different accounts we have over the Internet?

    SDCC 2012 Hands-On Preview: Hybrid

    5th Cell is known for breaking the typical mold in gaming, such as the hit Scribblenauts series on the DS and iOS. They’ve chosen to try to break the mold of yet another genre in gaming; this time, it’s the third-person shooter. Upon first glance, however, Hybrid looks like any other third-person shooter that relies on cover for strategic gameplay. The difference lies within the jetpacks. Ah yes, how jetpacks seem to make everything better. At the very least, they open up your strategy from the typical pop-up-and-shoot. Gameplay is based solely on online multiplayer. You can play in random matches like you would in other multiplayer games, but there is also a large multiplayer campaign. Players pick sides between the Variants and the Paladins as they battle all over the Earth to try to seize possession of dark matter, the most coveted power source. Whichever side controls the dark
