LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Game Preview Impressions

GameRant.com had a chance to sit down with TT Games at the recent GDC show to get an eyes-on, guided preview of the game in development. It sounds like they are making the game more of a true platformer than the normal hack’n’slash type of previous LEGO games.

For another take on the preview, GamePro.com also put up a preview article on the game.

This one’s scheduled for a May release on all major platforms including the Nintendo 3DS.

Go Get Ninjago 2505 Garmadon’s Dark Fortress For $50

I always try to make it a point to continue with the sales news past December but always manage to peter out by the time New Year’s rolls by. Anyways, I’m posting this deal because it’s a pretty sweet deal no matter how you look at it. Right now at Amazon, you can pick up Ninjago 2505 Garmadon’s Dark Fortress for $50, down from MSRP of $69.99. With free shipping and no tax to most states, it’s a pretty nice deal if you’re into ninja.
