Free Augmented Reality Set With $45 USD Purchase Posted by Richard on January 26, 2020 at 10:09 PM CST:
The Hidden Side Drag Racer set can be yours free with a purchase of $45.00 USD or more on LEGO Shop At Home. If your phone is compatible with the Hidden Side app, the Racer can be scanned and used as a visual anchor to play the game. TLG is running this offer until the end of February 9th EST. The model is valued at 12.99 USD, more than 25% of the minimum purchase, not a bad deal if you ask me. Forum link.
Two Great Building Games Updated Posted by Richard on December 10, 2019 at 09:43 PM CST:
Minecraft received an update today, featuring the addition of bees to help players grow crops and provide several new useful materials to harvest. Terraria on the other hand, received an update to it's Switch Edition on the same day to add some of the advanced wiring features and bring it a huge step closer to the current PC version.
Minecraft Realms Has Been Upgraded Posted by Richard on December 6, 2019 at 08:06 PM CST:
Minecraft Realms, the in-house server solution developed by Mojang and Microsoft, has received a huge upgrade. Now called Realms Plus, existing and new subscribers now get a good chunk of free content rotated out monthly. You need a realms subscription that matches your version of choice (PC/Java Or Bedrock/Console). I seem to think that the Bedrock version used to be 4 or 5 bucks a month, so this may be a bad deal to those who just wanted the basics, but a good deal for premium content buyers or Java players who were already paying 8 bucks a month.

Minecraft Earth In Early Access Posted by Richard on November 15, 2019 at 06:10 PM CST:
Minecraft's Augmented Reality game "Minecraft Earth" is not quite ready for worldwide launch, but they have recently expanded it out into early access for some areas. It is currently available for both IOS and Android, although some android users like myself are getting a "not available in your country" glitch despite being in one of the early access areas.

Huge LEGO Game Sale On Playstation Network Posted by Richard on November 13, 2019 at 09:40 PM CST:
If the Playstation 4 is your console of choice, most LEGO® themed games are currently on sale for the platform. The vast majority are marked down to 70%, which is the cheapest I've ever seen for many of the tittles. LEGO Worlds for example rarely dips down below 15 bucks USD, and is currently just a bit short of 10 dollars.
LEGO Minifigure Hidden In Bulb Boy Posted by Richard on November 8, 2019 at 10:32 AM CST:
As a result of the strange ecosystem for the Nintendo Switch's eshop, the somewhat disturbing adventure game Bulb Boy was recently marked down to the low price of .49 cents USD. While I spotted several things that may have been LEGO® references, there can be no mistaking the LEGO Minifigure in one of the game's medicine cabinets. Forum link.
Deadline To Upgrade Minecraft On Xbox One Approaching Posted by Richard on October 24, 2019 at 09:46 AM CST:
If your interest in building with LEGO® products extends into Mojang's Minecraft, and the Xbox One is your console of choice, now is the time to make sure you have the latest version. There are actually two versions of the game on the marketplace (though the older one might not be available for purchase anymore), and you have until November 30th 2019 to get the new version for free if your still using the old one. Just follow Mojang's instructions here to ensure you receive a code for the newer Bedrock Edition if you haven't already. Forum link.
Switch Eshop Sale On LEGO Branded Games Posted by Richard on October 21, 2019 at 09:49 AM CST:
The Nintendo Eshop is once again discounting LEGO® games on the Switch console. Most tittles are 50% off, though DC Supervillains and it's complete edition are 40% off. If portability is not a priority, I would encourage you to wait until the PC or console versions went on sale. The Switch was not meant to be a powerhouse, but some of these games have infuriatingly slow loading times on Nintendo's machine.
