I seriously hope there's no talking, even though Lego City looks nice.

After playing Lego Batman 2 recently, I was really hoping this would happen.

Lego games are great and fun for all ages. So now, everyone is getting in on the fun.

@crithon: When voices were first introduced the developers said that all LEGO games going forward would be voiced. This was a result the talkless humor being lost on children, ie their target demo. They held focus groups (which are always a good idea) with various children and when asked what their least favorite part(s) of the LEGO games were it was the fact that the characters didn't speak. Now as a result of that all LEGO games will be voiced.

I'm pretty sure the guys all talked about it briefly on the Bombcast (or maybe it was a Quick Look) at some point.

This seemed mildly appropriate, to put here.

LEGO Lord of the Rings is fucking great. Probably the best LOTR game I've ever played. So I'm all over this.

Is it? I've been thinking about grabbing my first LEGO game, but wasn't sure about how the abbreviated dialogue from the movies would work.

I'm super excited about the prospect of this game. I hope it ends up even better then LEGO Batman 2.

DC and Marvel have collaborated a few times over the years, so it's actually not that unusual.

It's weird to me that people are whining about there being too many Lego games. There's always going to be properties worth exploiting, there's always going to be children wanting to play Lego video games, and there's always going to be money to be made.

Awesome news! I'm hoping they make an open world again like with Lego Batman 2.

I don't think LoTR was as good as Lego Batman 2, it suffers from the levels having to be structured around events from the movies. The dialogue is fine, but it was again done better in Lego Batman 2, where they had completely original voice overs. Batman's attitude towards Superman was especially hilarious. Kids can laugh at the funny lines, but it was quality voice work with a lot of adult humour there too. I can't imagine going back to a Lego game without dialogue now.

I thought this would happen as soon as I saw the marvel and dc Lego sets on store shelves.

This doesn't seem that unusual given that there have also been LEGO Star Wars games long before any of the DC properties, and Disney now owns both the Marvel and Star Wars IPs. I wonder what the ties are between Disney and Warner Bros.?

: Dialogue or not the LEGO games are quite a bit of fun whether you're one of the people who like or not. I've been wanting to snag LEGO LOTR too and I've heard mixed feelings on the whole dialogue argument but either way it's still LEGO and thus still just simple fun. LEGO games let you turn off your brain and just play a game for the sake of playing.

I'm totally in. The question is can I hold out till Christmas so my son doesn't feel like even more of a spoiled brat? It's hard to not spoil your kid when you have so much in common.

I guess I should also be concerned that I have so much in common with a five year old.
