IMG Reviews LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
6:11 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Feral Interactive's LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. The game uses LEGO bricks to recreate the scenes, characters and settings from all six Star Wars movies in a game universe spanning 36 levels. Players can take the roles of famous characters such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO and R2-D2, as they play through scenes from the films.

From the review:

On the graphics side, the Star Wars games have quite often been the best-looking LEGO games released. In many of the cinematic shots, it's hard to tell it's even LEGO. The Complete Saga also looks very crisp in and out of the levels, with a cantina-themed hub for all the different episodes. It's not exactly Skyrim, it's true, but it's very functional and stays consistently easy on the eyes.

The sound is roughly the same, but the complete Star Wars soundtrack pushes it an extra level. The music tracks are excellent, the lightsabers hum and crash, the blasters make the traditional zaps, and the various aliens grunt in their own languages. The production quality of the sound and music for any Star Wars game is generally top notch, and this is no exception. As a bonus, you get all of that without the poor voice-acting found in the game series focusing on Darth Vader's fictional apprentice.

Telltale's Ryan Kaufman Discusses Law & Order: Legacies
6:11 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Telltale Games has released a new internal interview with Law & Order: Legacies lead designer Ryan Kaufman. The developer discussed the process of turning the long running television series into a game. Law & Order: Legacies will feature a "dream team" of investigators and attorneys from the long running Law & Order television franchise, and will give players the chance to solve a case with their favorite team.

"When you work on a licensed game, itís really great to have a license you truly love. And Iím a big Law & Order fan, so diving into a game based on the tv series was an absolute blast. I watched the show mainly during the Briscoe/Logan/Curtis era, so it was natural to include that time period as part of our overall story arc. But the great thing about L&O is that you can dip in almost anywhere-- any year, any era-- and immediately know whatís going on. I have a huge amount of respect for the show creators and writers that they were able to keep it interesting within a standard format Ö for 20 years!

We knew right away the most important thing to do was capture the distinctive feel of the show. Law & Order has an incredibly quick rhythm to it; the dialog is clipped and tight, and the scenes rarely last more than 2 minutes. It was a challenge to offer a game experience with a similar full gallop pace. We also knew we had to really make you feel the moral choices and compromises being made in court. Law & Order is always great at sparking debate about how justice was (or wasnít) done in any particular case.
The Mac and Windows PC versions of Law & Order: Legacies will be released "early this year." Read more at the links below.

Cross-Realm Raids Coming To WoW In Patch 4.3.2
6:11 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has provided a status update on its plans to provide cross-realm raid options to players of the company's popular MMO, World of Warcraft. With the release of patch 4.3.2 players will be able to join up with Real ID friends from other realms to enter classic raids, or participate in Battlegrounds.

We previously introduced the ability to form cross-realm parties with Real ID friends, and now with Patch 4.3.2, we're adding the ability for players to use that same functionality to form raids to run older normal or heroic raids, or participate in Battlegrounds!

This will allow you to join up with your Real ID friends from other realms and:

* Form a cross-realm raid and use Raid Finder
* Jump in to any classic dungeon or raid and be automatically placed in the same instance
* Join forces and dominate the Battlegrounds


Please note, you will not yet be able to run normal or Heroic Dragon Soul with cross-realm Real ID raids.

As we look forward to the BattleTag system, itís a very exciting time for World of Warcraft. No matter what realm you and your friends are on youíll be able to team up and take on group content throughout the game.
