LEGO® 8-bit Gaming

For those of you who were gamers in the 8-bit console gaming (3rd gen) era, you might have very fond memories when you watch this LEGO® animation made by stop-motion of LEGO® bricks which took 1,500 hours (that's nearly a month!) of creation by Tomas Redigh! For those of you who are modern gamers, you might want to take a look at how gaming used to be - through the eyes of LEGO® bricks!

LEGO® Universe Screenshots

LEGO Universe

We first mentioned about LEGO® Universe way back in July 2008 more than a year ago here. If you don't already know, LEGO® Universe is LEGO®'s version of today's modern and popular MMO games, but using virtual minifigs instead of gaming characters in other online games. It will be out next year and uses a subscription model to play. Till we get more updates, enjoy the new screenshots here to have a better idea of how the game will look when it comes out!

By the way, if you didn't notice, the game's logo is a minifig's hand! Talk about having the whole world in your hand!
