Though only in his seventh year, my son has beaten every incarnation of the Angry Birds franchise on iPad, iPhone and Droid in our house and successfully helped other adults with their ornithological outrages. He has since moved on to two very different games for his allotted screen-time: Plants vs. Zombies, which, although he had originally completed last year, the recent update provides new levels, and The Lego games on Xbox. Though he does enjoy tackling the Lego games alone, he also likes the two-player action with his Papa beside his. We’ve played through the Indiana Jones, Batman and Star Wars games (he is now on VI: Return of the Jedi which he will likely complete on this Sunday’s allotted game time) which means it is time to pick up Lego: Pirates of the Caribbean.
However, there is one incarnation of the Lego series that I will be playing with him – but also after he has gone to bed: Lego Lord of the Rings, which will be showcased at E3 this week. The trailer below (after the cut) features original voice acting (much like Lego: Batman 2) and an infamous reenactment of a scene from Peter Jackson’s interpretation of The Fellowship of the Ring.
I can see what Lego toys we’ll be getting this Christmas… check out this trailer:
