Lego Jurassic World video game

There's just a couple of weeks left until the release of Jurassic World, and the accompanying Lego Jurassic World video game. The game will include Legoised versions of all four Jurassic Park movies, and along-side the familiar Lego video game features, will introduce the ability to play as the dinosaurs themselves, and to create new dinosaurs, by collecting and experimenting with DNA samples.

There have been several trailers released already, this latest one features a velociraptor riding a motorbike. Need I say more?

Continue after the jump for a look at some of the brilliant artwork released to promote the game, the previous trailers, and pre-order bonus Lego sets.

Next Lego Ideas set will be A-maze-ing

The latest Lego Ideas review results have been announced, and one new set has been confirmed, the Labyrinth Marble Maze. I think this is a really deserving selection, as the use of Lego to make a maze game is really original application of medium, and is very MOCable; with the potential to modify it with endless alternate maze designs.

Here's the announcement video, which also confirms one of the other projects in this review period, the F7A Hornet from the video game Star Citizen, is still under consideration.

Continue after the jump for a closer look at the successful design, and those that didn't make it through.
