Release Date: June 3, 2008
MSRP: $49.99

Who else is excited?

Looks like the secondary character interactivity is going up a notch. Plus, playable LEGO Sean Connery? Sold. Only thing that bothers me is the obvious absence of any Kingdom of the Crystal Skull content. Just have to milk us don't you, Traveller's Tales?

    So who wants to bet and Lego Indiana Jones gets released in a couple of years and then later on an edition to combine them in a single awesome package?

    This looks sooo good. I may have to buy both the Wii and DS versions - it's not like I'll get bored with the storyline.

    If you had asked me what i thought about a LEGO anything game a few years ago before LEGO Star Wars, I'd have laughed right in your face. But now? I'm genuinely freaking excited about it. I loved Lego Star Wars and now i cant wait to be crackin threw blocks with my whip.

    If it's as good as ya'll say it must be (I never played Lego Star Wars--see Gamjee's comment three posts above mine), I'll get this for PSP.

    I'm on a complete media blackout for this game. I know nothing now, I want to know nothing on the 6th of June.

    I haven't played a Lego game before. I'm not a big fan of Star Wars, but I'm a big fan of Indy. Shall be looking forward tot his :)

    I'll be getting this. SW was a really well-done game.

    I'm actually glad they're not including Skulls. Since I doubt they'll be another Indy movie, at least with Ford, it's better to leave this with the original three, "nostalgia set to maximum," Data.

    Watched Temple of Doom yesterday for the first time in a long time. Still not as good as Last Crusade, and Raiders is pretty much a perfect film, but still very fun. Look forward to seeing the LEGO equivalent of all the gruesome stuff.

    Awesome.

    I'm somewhat disappointed there's no "Throw Me the Idol" Achievement, since I use that line with my friends all the time.

    I will likely get this as my nostalgia for Indy far, far exceeds my nostalgia for Star Wars. IIRC, the full collection of Lego Star Wars games for the 360 had online co-op, didn't it? I hope this one does, I have a buddy that would buy this Day 1 just to play with me.

    im assuming it has online co-op, since the later lego star wars iterations did. im trying not to spoil too much by reading a bunch of previews and stuff, so i dont know 100%.

    I'll eat something pretty inedible if there are actually Nazis in this game.
    Either way though, this game will be absolutely outstanding!

    oh theyre not actually nazis, no swastikas or anything. theyre just kind of generic evil, occultist, trenchcoat wearing dudes. but we all know theyre really nazis, dammit.

    i mean theres no way legos going to be pumping out toys with swastikas all over them.

    How were the Wii controls for the Star Wars collection, anyway? I played it originally on PS2 and loved it, but Wii controls for ports are usually more hit than miss. Was it as excellent on the Wii as on other systems?

    If they were smart, they'd just allow the option to use the Classic.

    I doubt they're smart.

    Anyway, I'm interested in an answer to this as well. For whatever reason, Lego Star Wars (the original trilogy one) ran like a dog on my computer despite the fact that I well exceeded the recommended requirements, so I'm thinking I might go for the Wii version of this one.

    Loved them. No waggle needed. I never played any of the other versions, but they seem supremely comfortable to me.

    That was pretty fun.

    So I'm leaning toward the PC version, since my system (Athlon 4000+, Radeon X1300 Pro 256MB) seems more than capable of running this at decent resolution/quality. Plus, if I want to play it on the big screen, I've got everything I need to hook this up to my 37" LCD TV.

    Can anybody think of any reason why I would consider the Wii version (only quasi-current-gen console I have) over the PC?

    Someone who knows more about the game's features can chime in to correct me but I'm assuming it has co-op. So maybe if you already have multiple wii inputs but nothing besides keyboard and mouse for PC you'd consider the console version for its multiplayability.

    I don't know why you'd even play it with a mouse and keyboard on the PC in the first place though. The original lego star wars was what prompted me to go out and buy a gamepad. But if you do, If I remember correctly, the 2nd player is just bound to different keys (if you really want to get cozy you can even play it with two players on the same keyboard)

    Oh, to be clear I'd definitely be using a gamepad for single player, and would buy a second gamepad for multiplayer if it's available on a single PC. I'm just using a basic Logitech dual-analog pad right now, but I'm considering getting something wireless (due to the placement of my PC when I hook it up in the living room to the TV).

    You pick up guns, etc. occasionally with limited ammo. You rely on your fists and your whip for the majority of the game.
