Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 1&2 Out NOW (Video)

It has been 10 years since the release of the first Marvel: Ultimate Alliance game and I can still remember the initial buzz after seeing the trailer at Comic-Con 2006. Here we are 10 years later and both the first and second game in the series are getting a re-release for current generation consoles and PC. Personally these are some of my favorite Marvel games of all time and as excited as I am to be able to play a more updated version of them, I think I would have preferred a new installment in the series instead.

Avengers Age of Ultron In 2 Minutes (Video)

The Avengers: Age of Ultron has been recreated using LEGO figures and it’s actually pretty good. Not only that, but it calls out some of the major plot problems that I think we all noticed in the film. Of course this short video is full of the signature LEGO humor that we have all come to enjoy plus it’s just cool to see some of the key scenes from the movie recreated in toy form. I’m sure it took a lot of work to put this whole thing together, but I honestly wish it was longer…only because it’s so entertaining.

LEGO Invasion (Video)

There is nothing worse than having something or someone chase you down for the mysterious contents of your briefcase. In this video from andrewmfilms, our protagonist has acquired himself some magical golden LEGO bricks that seem to be able to turn into anything he wants. However, there is a rather angry team of Lego characters that want to stop him from getting away with the magical bricks. It honestly sounds like the plot line for the LEGO movie sequel.

Marvel Super Heroes: Maximum Overload

So Marvel released a Lego inspired mini sires titles “Marvel Super Heroes: Maximum Overload.” I assume that this is supposed to coincide with the release of their new video game Lego: Marve Super Heroes that was released late last month. So far there are only 5 episodes that run about 5-6 minutes long. When taken in context, Maximum Overload is actually a very well made mini series. The CG animation quality and voice acting is very well done, and that Lego sense of humor comes across excellently. This is obviously targeted to younger audiences but I think any Marvel fan will find something to enjoy about it.
