I have just read that Lego have released a game which they hope will rival Minecraft, this gets me rather interested as my son and now daughter are crazy about Minecraft, they want to watch StampyLongNose videos on YouTube, they talk about it with all their friends all the time, they want Minecraft parties and Minecraft play dates. But happily, they still love Lego – the real Lego, they play endless games with their Lego City, Lego Star Wars, Lego Friends, and Lego Super Heros, they build crazy vehicles, fantastic houses, and go on adventures around the house… And I love that Ariel and Luke Skywalker are always having space or underwater adventures together (they often marry!).
So do I really want to introduce a computer game version of Lego to them? At the moment it is only available on a PC, no iPad or Mac support, and it is at a very early stage (which means it is unfinished and only has a small amount of the final of the planned features), so maybe I wait, and see if it becomes the talk of the playground and I get pestered and pestered until I give in and buy it, and they end up spending their rather restricted allotted computer game time (or so they complain to me!) playing that instead of Minecraft…. we shall see.
