I recently had the joy of making a new friend on tumblr. I don’t know if he’s just worried about Yahoo buying his favorite blogging tool, or maybe he’s got one of the things tattooed on himself, but he certainly did not like my saying that using the Elder Sign from the Simon Necronomicon isn’t correct.

One thing that Aquaman forgot when he decided it was a good idea to start bossing around a Great Old One, is that Cthulhu is not an ocean creature.
Jurassic Park 3D was amazing, and the movie still stands as having some of the best special effects I have ever seen. Even on an Imax screen, there were barely any issues with it. I really wish that modern movie makers would look back at what they used to make and see how awesome what they are making now could be. There is one thing I would think about changing though…
Everybody knows Harry Houdini, even today, nearly a hundred years after his death, he’s still a household name. He was a very interesting man with a very interesting life, and if they put half as much effort into this as they did The Hatfields and McCoys or as they are currently putting into Vikings, this could be an amazing show.
We’ve had a lot of reboots, reimagings, and remakes recently. A lot of them have sucked, but they don’t always have to. The Wizard of Oz, The Departed, The Thing, The Fly, all remakes of other films. Likewise, we’ve seen many different versions of X-Men, Transformers, Ghostbusters, GIJoe, Thundercats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and other popular cartoons. Sure, some have been crap, but others have actually been pretty good.
There are a couple things that you’d need to make a great Lego game. First, you need a lot of characters, and they have to have a diverse skill set. We need to have a reason to switch between all those characters. There needs to be action, you have to fight someone, and that someone will need a horde of anonymous troops for you to fight. And lastly, we’ll need a large world with lots of different locations to play in. A good story pre-existing storyline can help, but they can make up their own just as easily as long as the characters and world are good.
There are several franchises that I’d like to see turned into Lego games. Sure, some of these don’t even have a chance at making it, but it sure would be nice.
