I don't think it's going to surprise anyone if I mention that the LEGO Batman series has produced some of my all-time favorite superhero video games. I mean, I like LEGO and I certainly like Batman, so that's a no-brainer, but the truth of the matter is that they've started off strong and just keep getting better. The second game's expansion into a huge, open LEGO version of Gotham City populated with the heroes of the Justice League was really fantastic, and I've often wondered how they were going to top it. I figured maybe they'd throw in a few visits to other cities and call it a day.
Turns out, I vastly underestimated the developers at TT Games. They, along with Warner Bros. Interactive, have just announced LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, and this time, IT'S IN SPACE.
LEGO's Cuusoo program recently changed its name to the much more easy to understand "LEGO Ideas," but the basic idea is the same: Fans come up with ideas for new LEGO sets, and if they get enough votes, there's a good chance that they'll actually be made into official offerings from everyone's favorite Danish building blocks. As you might expect, most of the ideas tend to revolve around pre-existing pop culture icons, and and while I'd love to see more sets based on things that weren't just TV shows and movies, you can't deny that there is awesome stuff over there.
Like, for instance, Sam Gras' Batman '66 Batmobile, which he's hoping to get picked up in time for the show's 50th anniversary in 2016, featuring TV-accurate license plates, a moustachioed Cesar Romero Joker, and shark-repellent Bat-spray.
