Weekly Mashup #1

We’re testing out a new series that is more talk-show centric. Yes, it’s not just me on camera anymore! Wow what a concept.

Ian Dawson co-hosts. Now you’ll finally be able to meet the man behind many of the recent reviews on the blog.

Since this is a ‘mashup’ show we’re mixing in multiple products and reviewing them on the fly.

Let us know if this format entertains you more than the previous, single product video review. We probably won’t totally eliminate the single product video review. It’ll be something that goes hand in hand with each other.

On our first episode we review:
You’re Not Elected Charlie Brown – DVD
Sleeping Beauty Platinum Edition – DVD
Lego Batman – Xbox 360
Gamer Grub – Food

Holy Lego Cartoon Series, Batman!

Lego Batman

Batman will be hitting the TV again, and I’m not talking about The Batman here. Instead, Traveller’s Tales, developers of all those great Lego games will be handling this. Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about a Lego Batman cartoon series by a video game developer! Awesome!

“We’re looking to do… a Lego Batman series. I think they’re looking at doing a one-off initially,” Rich Earl, producer at TT said. The series will use the game’s engine itself, and the characters will animated fresh from Maya.

Earl claims that this will be quite different, and that’s totally fine by me. Traveller’s Tales earlier announced that they had their minds on a TV cartoon series, but did not mention any specifics. This news confirms that a 20-minute Batman cartoon will be on, and hopefully make its way to its own series!

I hope LucasArts looks at this and decides that a Lego Star Wars TV series will be worth its salt. Hell, from what I can tell, that might even end up better than that battlefest kid’s show The Clone Wars. Well, it’s not that bad, but a Lego Star Wars TV series might end up somewhere. Or not.
