[Video] LEGO Meets Video Games for the 2012 Annual Interactive Achievement Awards

LEGO and video gaming are undoubtedly becoming increasingly connected. With a Minecraft based set and another LEGO Batman game around the corner, this video, created by Alex Kobbs (Kooberz Studios) could not be timed better. Created for the 15th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards, the video showcases several well-known video games from the past year, many that lend themselves to the world of LEGO beautifully. Warning: this video contains Megabloks.

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Exclusive Pre-order Bonus

Gotta catch’em all? If it’s one thing LEGO knows about it’s customer base, it’s that they go nuts for minifigs. And as if including a different version of Jack Sparrow in every upcoming LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean set wasn’t enough, they’ve tilted their unscrupulous meter another notch by offering an exclusive version of Jack as a pre-order bonus of the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean video game through Gamestop. The game will be available for every major platform including the Nintendo 3DS on May 10, 2011.

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.

New Clone Wars Game Trailer

More weird news exclusives: In the wake of MTV getting all Pirates of the Caribbean exclusive news, EntertainmentWeekly.com has a new game trailer for LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. It’s so exclusive, I can’t even embed the video, so hence the low-res screenshot.

The game is due out this March 22 for all current major platforms, including the Nintendo 3DS. Maybe that’s why the game was delayed, for including some 3D effects? I can only hope so.

LEGO Star Wars III Delayed

Traveller’s Tales latest installment of LEGO-based video games, LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, has been delayed to March 22. Not much of a delay, so hopefully they’re taking the time to create a bug-free game, which they have yet to do. The game will be available on all current platforms.
