hey friends. sorry i didn’t update. i had a bit o’ fun over the weekend and thought i told the blog to publish itself, but the blog got a little drunk instead. i just sobered it up now. technology fail.
we’re handing out props today to lego. it’s pretty impressive how a classic and popular children’s toy has reinvented itself. kids today seem to be playing less and less with actual toys, and focusing more on digital things: cameras, cell phones, video games – you get the drift.
lego right now has a pile of video games. the list of lego games is long, but my personal faves are:
- lego batman
- lego indiana jones
- lego indiana jones 2
- lego star wars
i’ve spent hours with these titles. i was a bit shocked – it’s not violent, but instead it’s cartoonish mischief at best. you can beat someone up with a shovel, but they almost come back.
anyway, aside from my personal reminiscing, there’s talk of a new kid on the lego block [i meant to do that pun there]. it was announced at CES this year that there’s going to be a big ol’ mmorg coming out, but for the computer. it’s called ‘lego universe‘. you can sign up for the beta test there too.
not gonna lie, but i hope one of the big three jump on it. i might have to buy the lego harry potter years 1-4.
it’s at that stage i will be admitting there is no hope for me.
