[Preview] Lego Minifigures Online: You Got Diablo in My LEGO!

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,643MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The team at Funcom was able to meet with us about their new MMO at GDC. It was not crazed wizards and hardy barbarians, nor was it wild factions hiding magic in today’s society. It was LEGO. LEGO Minifigures Online captures what is so much fun about action RPGs and online worlds in a game that both adults and kids will enjoy. Executive Producer Lawrence Poe was on hand to explain working in the LEGO world, right before we got to go hands on with the title due out this Summer.

     that looks fun!

    Woot, I love LEGOs :D

    Neat. I hope it is able to pull in a decent audience. I recently talked to a younger sibling and when I mentioned MMO's she got nostalgiad over memories of Toontown so there is definitely a market for these things.

    #1: Items with randomized stats?

    #2: Dedicated master server/realm so that a real living and breathing economy is possible?

     

     

    If both of these things are met, I'll certainly give it a go.

    I would be careful - the fighting gameplay in TSW is so bad it's legendary. 

     

    It sounds as if Funcom won the contract with Lego because one team of executives who know nothing about games had an agreement with an equally clueless bunch, who have never played a game in their life.

     

    If 95% of the gameplay in this Lego game is equally as bad as TSW, it will be a turkey.

    "Everything is awesome"

     

    Couldn't resist.

    This could end up being very interesting.

    I guess it is too much to hope that those who played Lego Universe Beta and then subscribed until the last moment of the game will get LMO Beta keys.  

    I still dream about playing Lego Universe.  It was fun, challenging, and the players were kind and helpful.   I haven't even uninstalled LU because it doesn't feel "right".

    I will be playing Lego Minifigures Online, without a doubt.

    Funcom had nothing to do with Lego Universe so I doubt it.

    Looks awesome.  To the fella asking if there is mounts.... most likely not, there is none in diablo nor are they needed.

    On the other hand you register for beta using your Lego account. For me at least, that is the exact same account I used to log into Lego Universe, so one would imagine that that information would be easily available if Lego wanted Funcom to do something like that.

    I miss LU. In the end it was starting to show signs of greatness. The new inhouse team were working wonders, and then the brass at Lego killed it... Sigh.

    You can apply for their beta through the Funcom site if they're still accepting. You will need a Lego account as well. I checked out the Lego Minifigures Online website and it gives you a good idea how the game looks and feels. There are screenshots, a video (it's sort of meh), info, and preview stats of mini-figures.

    The game looks like a lot of fun, but I think people should remember this is an arpg targeted at kids. From their website it doesn't look like total sandbox style lego building, but more of a lego themepark arpg type of thing.

    Or it's a game targeted at adults made to look like a game for kids. :)

    I can see it now...youngster downloads, plays this game has fun, Funcom advertises Age of Conan to youngin' and the kid thinks it "looks more fun".

    Mom walks in room.....boobies, Funcom fail.

    Hahaha, I see what you did there. I think the game will be a blast. We'll talk more when open beta comes around. I have nothing bad to say, but I can't really say anything at all. Probably I've blabbed too much as it is.

    And again Funcom takes on another project before properly fixing their current games.. Great.

    "The game is faced-paced fun similar to other action RPGs that you can play with your friends. "

     

    I don't know what your hinting at Bill, but it sounds a bit mature to be child appropriate ;)

    Playing: GW2 & Robocraft

  • TheSedatedTheSedated WormsPosts: 82Member
    What about damage meter and dungeon/raid finder?
  • Yoottos'HorgYoottos'Horg Colorado Springs, VAPosts: 287Member

    I'll only play if I can have a knights plummed helmet, with a SCUBA backpack, a tankard as my melee weapon, and green Robbin Hood legs...

     

    If they can't deliver that then this is a non-starter for me.

    If you got nothing else out of this thread at least you got to see attractive women in bikinis.

    This game looks really good : )
  • xpiherxpiher Indianapolis, INPosts: 3,311Member

    looks interesting. 

    To all the people complaining about TSW... I really don't get it. While I didn't play the game for very long , I don't remember combat feeling any different than any other tab target mmo on the market and the questing system was actually done really well.
