It’s 2014 everyone!
Hope all my Midwest readers are staying warm from this massive blast of winter.
I know Bores is suffering as well, my Facebook informant told me he posted about the cold. I guess this means that we won’t get any videos until next month. Yeah I know this post was short but…. There’s something new at GotGame? Shit.
Well now, we have our first review of 2014. Lego Marvel Super Heroes, only three months after it came out. Or two months if he’s going to talk about the PS4 or XB1 version. Going by the derpy title card, it will be the PS3 version.
Also, Bores gets the title wrong for some reason. He calls it “Lego Marvel Universe Super Heroes”. There’s no “universe”, that just makes things a little too long. I guess reading the box is hard work.
0:06 - 0:20: The video begins with IG behind his desk, with a bunch of Lego Marvel figures standing in front of him. I really don’t get why he needs to buy the figures when he does a Lego video game review, about 99% of the people that would review these games see no need to.
“How does this one STACK UP? Let’s check it out” Could your line-reading be anymore forced? How has your acting gotten worse?
0:21 - 0:41: “If you loved Lego Batman 2, then you’ll love this” *takes a shot* Fuck that’s bitter.
Improvement on the last game, roaming around NYC… next.
0:42 - 1:03: He goes over the storyline, about Doctor Doom “kep-turing” Silver Surfer and teaming up with other villains.
“It’s your typical comic book story, only in Lego form” Ya don’t say. I thought that a Lego game about Marvel Super Heroes would be about politics.
1:03 - 1:47: He goes over the different worlds, and how they’re all Marvel related. Zzz
He brings up that each character has their own role to play. Okay, what are these roles? … Not going to explain huh?
He mentions easter eggs, and the massive roster of characters, including the ability to play as the Statue of Liberty. Meh, I’d prefer if it was the Weeping Angel Statue of Liberty. Also, no mention of playable Stan “The Man” Lee? Come on son!
1:48 - 2:21: He mentions the characters all have different moves, but won’t say what they are. He brings up that Spider-Man’s web-slinging is really good, and that other games have a hard time pulling it off. Go play Spider-Man 2 for PS2/Gamecube/Xbox, that does it beautifully.
He also calls the cutscenes “animatics” for some reason. You really need to learn your video game terminology.
Onto the final verdict.
He liked it a lot, mentions “oozing on the couch and being lazy”, brings up that it’s good for kids (new drinking game rule, I expect we’ll see him say that a lot now that he has little brats in his life), and that his only issue is that many of the in-game characters aren’t real Lego figures, and he’s also mad that he doesn’t have the entire Justice League
“It makes me very irate” You can tell how irate I am by my bored tone of voice. Grrrrrr.
Oh the video ends with a random appearance from Lego Deadpool. Whatever.
Boring boring boring zzzzzzzzzzzz
A generic way to start 2014. His descriptions of the game were extremely vague, never going over the “different roles” or “different moves”. Also, why doesn't Bores make videos about the actual Lego figures? There’s an audience for that, and he’s obviously bleeding views. Then again, Chris’ video ADD is so bad that a series about Lego is the last thing he should do. I don’t know…
Keep warm everyone.
