LEGO has just released images of two new sets “The Cave” and “The Farm” for fans of Minecraft, allowing people to put their mini figs on the sets and creating some cool crossovers (Harry Potter tending sheep on a farm?).While these aren’t the first Minecraft LEGO sets, in fact Minecraft LEGO has been here for quite a while, these certainly are the right sized ones. The previous LEGO set was on a tiny scale with tiny figures. While the new sets aren’t huge, they certainly are big enough to accommodate 3-4 mini figs easily.To make the sets look even more appropriate for the Minecraft theme, the mini fig heads have been changed to square heads, just like in Minecraft.These sets are scheduled to be released at the end of 2014 along with some other Minecraft themed sets, The First Night, Creative Box, The Ender Dragon and The Mine.The Cave includes with it 2 mini figures, Steve and a zombie, with their various accessories, even a spider! The set also … [Read more...] about Two New Minecraft LEGO Sets Announced With Images

Welcome to GameSpot Q&A, a weekly section where we ask our staff and readers an interesting discussion question about video games. Look at this as a forum where you and others can discuss and compare your opinions of this beloved hobby of ours. So don't hesitate to let us know what your answer is to this week's question in the comments below!This week's question is as follows: What two game series do you want to be in a crossover together? And what kind of game would you want it to be? Kevin VanOrdWheel of Time and Elder Scrolls. This is a bit of a cheat, because Wheel of Time has only had one significant game, but I want an exploration-heavy role-playing game in the Wheel of Time universe so badly I'd cut off my left pinkie toe to see one come to life. Game of Thrones has captured our culture's imagination, but Wheel of Time's greater focus on magic gives its world's politics an edge ripe for exploring in interactive form.

You may recall that 12 months ago, I posted lists of our most wanted review assignments for 2009. Now celebrating its second anniversary, the "You Wanna Review What?!" e-mail thread is something that I send around to all of our in-house reviewers asking for a list of the 10 games that they'd most like to work on in the upcoming year. I'm not sure how the process plays out in our UK or AU offices, but here in the US, it invariably sparks some interesting conversations as editors compare lists in an attempt to avoid too much crossover and "wasted" entries. Personally, I keep my list a secret while I'm working on it and pay little attention to what anyone else is up to, but I did make a point of telling everyone what my number one choice is in the hope that nobody would be willing to fight me for it. As in previous years, including games on these lists doesn't guarantee an editor the assignment, and you shouldn't confuse these lists with lists of our most anticipated games. Sure, … [Read more...] about You Wanna Review What?! Again!
The third season of The Flash has been painfully slow. For a show about a speedster, that's left a lot of us in a lurch. There's a new hipster version of Harrison Wells from an alternate dimension, there's been a pact to keep all the team's secrets in the dark and there's been a big bad who isn't necessarily big or bad.Thankfully, that all changed this week.[Warning: The following is a recap and contains detailed spoilers for last night's episode.]With all the characters in the right place, last week ended with a weird plot nuke of introducing a Transformers-esque speed god named Savitar. This was at the same time that the team was introduced to Doctor Alchemy ... at the same time that Wally entered a cocoon. Picking up in that same moment, Flash and the invisible speed monster Savitar traveled across time and space, while Barry got the kind of ass-whopping he hasn't seen since Zoom dangled his broken body like a kitten on Broken Kitten Day. (It's a holiday in Canada, I've been … [Read more...] about The Flash finally reveals Alchemy
It was only natural that the runaway success of the Harry Potter book series would see the concept adapted to film, especially after it turned on a generation of children to reading. What better way, then, to capitalise further on its success than by releasing a swathe of Harry Potter-themed video games? We caught up with a member of the development team from EA Bright Light and got wand in hand with the Wii version to experience the latest game and some of the unique gameplay that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will feature. Half-Blood Prince comprises several modes beyond a simple single-player story campaign. Although the meat of the game wasn't on show, we had a chance to check out the two-player wand duels, Be the Seeker broom racing, and potion creation. Half-Blood Prince is the first time that Harry Potter fans have been able to battle their friends on the same console via the duel mode, and though it may appear simple, it's actually quite nuanced for advanced … [Read more...] about E3 2008: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Hands-On Impressions
