In case you missed it: Yesterday’s installment of The Digest covered Lollipop Chainsaw.
Have you ever been playing solitaire, and somebody comes up behind you and says, “Put the red nine on the black ten”? That’s the type of thing that Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes does constantly. It’s far from unique among contemporary studio-system video games in this respect. And it drives me a little nuts.
Steve Heisler brings up an interesting point in this discussion: He wishes that the Lego games would feature more flexible building options—that players could have a little more leeway with how you used the bricks. I seem to recall that one or more of the games in this prolific series have tried something like this. Maybe the Harry Potter games? Neither Steve nor I have played all of them (not even close), but if you know, perhaps you can fill us in.
Sincerely yours, John Teti, stud fiend.
