Since there are five levels per movie and I've counted only four so far for the second movie, then it seems there's only one level left to go before we reach the halfway point of this game. For this week's stream, I certainly remember seeing the part with the tall grass, and since nobody every actually dies in this game, I knew there were going to be plenty of funny moments and dialogue throughout that level (I especially liked that lawnmower).

 

Of the four Jurassic Park movies, the one that I've seen the least of is the third one, so I'll be looking forward to what we'll see over the next few weeks. And at the pace we're going, this game could be finished by the end of May, after which I will definitely be looking forward to seeing Lego City Undercover. (I find the great thing about waiting a little while before playing a new game is that it takes some time for complete guides to be written, and I recently noticed on that list of guides I had posted near the beginning of this topic that the one for Lego City Undercover is still incomplete, so I'm sure that by the time you get to playing that game you won't have to worry about not knowing what to do in case if you ever get stuck somewhere.)

Okay, the latest episode is up, and we've made it into Jurassic Park III! Since there were a number of votes since last time, I've reset things for next week to give us a clean slate.

Since you mentioned you might not have much time next week due to BrickFair, I guess it's a good thing you got a little more than two levels done this week. Even though I've seen almost nothing from the third movie, I can tell that the trend of having none of the characters actually die is still part of this game (and apparently in most cases, such characters simply run away screaming and are never seen again).

 

Anyway, I noticed many of the recent non-weekly votes (as in not mine or yours) were for Lego City Undercover. Based on the videos I've seen (of the earlier Wii-U version at least), it seems to be quite an extensive game that might take a while. Seeing as we've already passed the halfway point in Lego Jurassic World, I'm still voting to keep going and finishing this game before moving on to Lego City Undercover (despite how I can't wait to see you try that game).

I am definitely one of the people who votes for Lego City Undercover whenever I remember to vote at all. Because as one of the few, the proud, the Wii U owners, I LOVED LCU, which I enjoyed far more than any of the licensed Lego games. I haven't even watched any of the Jurassic Park movies all the way through, so I don't have any interest in that game. No offense to anyone who wants to finish off the current game before jumping to a new oneā€”that's a perfectly valid impulse and if I cared about the game I'd probably feel the same way. But until I get to see a LCU playthrough from my good good friends at BZPower I don't really have much interest in tuning in. :P

For those wondering when you'll get to see the next game (which will almost certainly be Lego City Undercover), I'm always keeping track of the number of levels in a game, how many have been done, and how many are left to go. In this case, in Lego Jurassic World, there are twenty levels, five for each movie. If I've been counting correctly, as of yesterday's stream, there is now one level left for Jurassic Park III, then there's the five levels of Jurassic World, so that's a total of six levels left to go. If the usual pace of two levels per stream continues, then that means it will take three more weeks to complete this game.

 

In other words, I anticipate we'll be ready for LCU by the end of this month. For now, I'll continue to watch the rest of Lego Jurassic World. (And since I've actually seen much of the last movie, I'll be able to know how the game differs from the movie.)

If anyone can offer any insight as to what I was missing tonight - it would be greatly appreciated. I appear to be more exhausted from BrickFair New England than I thought. :P

I have to say, that certainly was really weird what happened at the end of the latest stream. You mentioned that you had tried switching to the other two characters, but it somehow wouldn't let you do that. What you said you had tried to do is what I would have tried, and I later decided to check the guide and even that says that you're supposed to do exactly what you were trying to do.

 

The only explanation that I can think of is that you might have somehow encountered a glitch, and my recommended solution would be to simply restart the level and hope it doesn't happen again. Quite a shame it had to happen right before a save point (at least according to the guide), so let's hope that it doesn't happen again next week. If it does and you can't figure out a way to progress any further through the game, well... this game for Twitch Tuesdays may have to go the way of Lego Dimensions (which would be a huge letdown).

Latest episode is up! No technical difficulties tonight, just a late start.

I've also reset the poll - as mentioned on the stream and on the front page, there's a sale going on for backward-compatible Xbox games, so I picked up Indiana Jones and Pirates of the Caribbean. Since that left only one game in the second question, it's been removed.

Glad to see last week's issue really was nothing more than a glitch that was solved by simply restarting the level. And quite a long level that turned out to be, but good that the level after that was rather short. This now leaves just three more levels left to go before Jurassic World is completed. With any luck, one of those levels might also be short and we could see the game finished in just one more stream. (If that's the case, I'd like to mention that I've heard there's a post-credits scene that references Lego Dimensions (which came out only a few months after this game), so be sure to keep an eye out for that.)

 

My vote this week goes to Jurassic World. Once that game's done, I would next like to see Lego City Undercover.

Looks like most of the levels for the fourth movie are rather long. Well, at least we're now very close to the end. I did like that little gag where the three guys who were supposed to have died in the first movie (but instead just got left behind in this game) were shown hiding in a jeep and had long beards. :lol:  Another minor detail I saw was during the part when the pterosaurs attacked, where among the random people under attack, I was pretty sure one of them looked just like Marty McFly based on the hair and color of his clothes.

 

Anyway, I think there's now only one level left to go before story mode on Lego Jurassic World is finally completed. Be sure to check the post-credits cutscene for the Lego Dimensions reference I previously mentioned.

Only one level, a rather long one, and a rather late start, everything pretty much worked out to finally finish story mode of Jurassic World this week.

 

Next week, it's time to move on to a new game, and as I've been mentioning for a while now, my vote goes to Lego City Undercover.

 

Based on the videos I've seen, this game is quite different from most of the Lego games we've seen here so far. There's a lot of story material going on in the hub area (all of Lego City), the story is divided into 15 "chapters", and the levels as we're familiar with are actually called "special assignments" with each chapter having either one, two, or none of them. Characters and vehicles are unlocked not by completing levels, but rather by collecting tokens throughout the game (both in the massive hub area and during the special assignments). Finally, all of the abilities needed to progress or reach bonus items are given by different outfits you can switch between, which you'll unlock as the story progresses.

 

Of course, since this game is an updated version that includes the additional option of two-player co-op, it'll be interesting to see how this version differs from the Wii-U version I've seen in the videos.

 

EDIT: I forgot to mention, for this game, could you please leave the music on? This game is not a licensed theme at all, so I see no reason at all why it should be disabled. Not to mention, from what I heard in the videos, I really liked a lot of the music (especially how epic it gets on the very last part of the story) so I think that you should make an exception for this particular game and not disable the music.

Thanks as always for the info! I will leave the music on for the first episode and see if we get yelled at or not for it.

I had some issues watching the stream on my desktop and had to use my laptop instead. I had to later watch the recording to catch the parts I missed, and I'm pleased to say that all of the audio (including the music I insisted on) comes through just fine.

 

Anyway, it's nice to see how this new version is different from the old Wii-U version. Most notably, without a game pad providing a second screen, all of the game content has to be on the main screen, so after having already seen the Wii-U version only through YouTube videos, this is actually the very first time I've seen certain features like navigation, calling other people, and the criminal scan. In addition, the loading screen (which for the Wii-U version was just a spinning police badge) features mini-models along with helpful (and/or funny) words of advice from Frank Honey. Also, Chase appears to be wearing a slightly different police uniform (a dark blue shirt and gloves, instead of a light blue shirt and no gloves).

 

One feature about this game I forgot to mention is that you not only collect studs (which can be spent to purchase characters and vehicles you've unlocked), but also a second set of parts called "bricks", which can be spent to create "super builds" on large baseplates throughout the city and on certain levels. Breaking objects will give you bricks instead of studs, though you do still earn studs from completing builds and other special actions. In addition, breaking objects by hitting them with a vehicle (including ramming into other vehicles) will instantly add those bricks to your count, without needing to run around and pick them up. You had mentioned seeing a multiplier at one point while driving around; that's the brick multiplier, and you earn it by simply destroying as many objects as quickly as possible while driving around, though it does wear off if you don't keep up the destruction.

 

Kinda unfortunate that you can't read the hints at the bottom of the screen due to Twitch features. I could see them in the stream just fine, and (if i remember some occasions correctly) since you apparently use some device to check that the stream is working before you start playing, maybe you could keep that handy just to see what's being said on the bottom of the screen.

 

So it looks like you tend to have difficulty driving vehicles around, like in virtually every other game we've seen so far. I guess this means that, in addition to falling off ledges, another thing you'll want to avoid is driving into walls (because that can actually damage and eventually destroy your vehicle, as you'll notice with the number of hearts). I would suggest you try to get some practice, because some of the missions later on in the story will be on a time limit, which means that (unlike what we see in virtually every other Lego game) it will be possible to actually fail certain missions (though I don't know what would happen should that occur, nor am I even sure if this feature is in this newer version of the game).

Slow start? That was more like a "barely start". Spending so much time wandering around aimlessly until you eventually got enough bricks to build that ferry, and only had just barely enough time to reach the very start of the next Special Assignment. To be honest, this was one of those times when I really wished I could have used the chat to tell you where to find that large super-brick and how to reach it (I actually had consider making a Twitch account so I could do so for this game in particular, but I'm still a little reluctant about it.)

 

Perhaps it might be a good idea to remind you of that list of guides I had posted near the beginning of this topic. Although the guide for Lego City Undercover is still technically incomplete, the story portion of it is complete, so if you ever get stuck, you can always check on that for help. Don't forget, breaking objects will give you bricks, and you can get a temporary multiplier if you use a vehicle to destroy as much as possible as quickly as possible. Also keep in mind that for every super build you'll encounter that's relevant to following the story, you'll always find enough super-bricks close by (no need to go all the way into another district like you did), so you just need to figure out where they are and how to reach them.

 

Hopefully we'll get to see a lot more progress next time. At least it was nice to see that "Shawshank Redemption" reference (especially considering that the actor being mentioned/denied ended up playing a role in The Lego Movie just one year after this game first came out). This game makes a lot of pop culture references, so be sure to keep your eye out for more throughout the story mode.

Good progress made this week, completing both special assignments of Chapter 3. In addition, both the Robber and the Miner disguises have been unlocked, so some places are now accessible. Also, good idea collecting any super-bricks you can reach (like on that rooftop near the mine), so that even if you miss one or two later on, you might still have enough to complete super-builds. Yet, it's also a good idea to collect all the super-bricks you can find close to the super-builds (like that cable car in the mine) so you won't have to worry about spending too many of them.

 

Anyway, I've noticed that every time this game is loaded, you'll always appear right in front of the police station, regardless of wherever you left off. So next week, since the next destination is in the Bluebell district, remember to go to the train station near the police station so you can quickly get much closer to where you'll need to go next.

 

By the way, since you said you prefer to use the train as often as possible, would you be interested if I gave you a list of where you can find and unlock all the other train stations? I could search through the guide and copy the parts describing where to find them in each district, for your convenience.

While I appreciate it, I think I'll be okay. I feel like I'm finally getting the hang of things and won't get better if I don't try.
