The Many Faces Tara and I Make Playing LEGO Batman

014-LEGOBatman

Despite its many flaws, I love the LEGO videogames. My parents got me LEGO Batman for my birthday (gee, that sentence reads like something a seven-year-old might type; oh well), and a gaming session with it pretty much turns out like the above. It’s all fun and games until things get frustrating as all gets. I don’t even know how kids play this game and get anywhere. Co-op is enjoyable…if you don’t mind dying a lot or getting snappy with your partner in crime. Because you will snap. Oh, you will.

Yet, even with the bad camera angles, glitches, horribly done automobile levels, and forestalling puzzles, one can’t stop playing. There’s too many studs to collect and not enough time. I want to buy–and collect–everything there is, and that’s the part that hooks me every single time. As of this post, I’ve completed somewhere about 45% of the game. What am I doing wasting my time here then? The Batsignal shines above!

My messenger in disguise
Makes up for such short goodbyes
You can’t come home again
Each time it’s different

  1. HAHA! Nice, and that’s very true, but damn, those puzzles can be really hard! They expect kids to figure them out? Pfft.

    Wonderful as always!

    • Earlier, I had to look one up online how to solve. Sigh…

  2. Ever think the geezers are the dumb ones and the kids know the answers? Nah.

    Love the “annoyed” faces. Totally hilarious!
