Finished one world and then finished the next one, so now only two more story worlds left to go. In addition, the only main characters not yet unlocked are Batman and Benny, and like the previous characters, unlocking them will also unlock a certain item with new abilities (Batman will obviously come with the grapple gun, while Benny will have the cutting tool you were wondering about at one point in this week's stream). I also suspect that it will be only after you've unlocked these particular items that you'll be able to collect other items with similar abilities.

 

Although none of the characters have any unique abilities, Unikitty and MetalBeard are not shaped like standard minifigures, so I'm a little curious what they look like when they do various things like climb ladders or attack enemies (I wouldn't be surprised if such visuals happen to be a little humorous, like MetalBeard throwing his own head).

 

Now that I think about it, this game seems to be going by just as quickly as the Ninjago Movie Videogame did, if you're already now just two or three weeks away from finishing the story mode. After you finish the main story, do you think you'll do some exploring of the other worlds, or will you just move on to some other Lego game?

I don't think LEGO has announced any other games coming out soon, so we'll have to see. I haven't reset the poll in a while, so maybe we'll do that and see what people would like us to play. I've installed the new version of the streaming software, so we may go back to doing a little more testing and see about adding some new features before we pick up a new game.

No lagging in the stream I could see (at least, none that I'm sure were not due to issues on my end), though kinda strange that you're suggesting a rather significant delay in the use of the chat. I just assumed you were too busy actually playing the game to pay much attention to the chat (not to mention, my preferred computer for watching tends to occasionally slow down enough to sometimes make the stream freeze for a few seconds, which could extend the perceived delay between us). Perhaps next week we can do a little test to see how long the delay is (my suggestion is that maybe during the loading screen near the beginning, I would say something like "call time" in the chat, and then you would immediately respond as soon as you see it, then I'll say in the chat how long that delay is).

 

As for the game itself, with yet another world completed, that now leaves only one more left to go before story mode is completed, and seeing how quickly you've been able to finish the previous worlds, it looks like there will be just barely enough time to get it done in only one more stream.

I'm trying to be better about reading it and having it open as close to my game screen as possible. There was definitely at least one point where I said something like, 'I wonder what I have to do next?' then I figured it out, and then your tip showed up in the chat. So it's definitely worth testing out some.

I had decided to test the chat lag early in the stream because I figured it would get much longer by the end of it, but now that you've enabled chat content to appear directly on the screen, I've noticed that my comments would always show up only a few seconds after I entered them, regardless of how frequently the stream kept freezing, so I guess you're the only one who would ever notice such an increasing delay from the lag. While it's true I had some issues at my end (Windows updates on the second Tuesday of every month are always annoying), I later noticed the stream kept frequently freezing for a few seconds even when my computer was not acting up, so it seems that issue has not quite been resolved just yet. Not to mention how the stream this week seemed to end rather abruptly (which left me unsure if you read my final comment that the Dan Brickman character is from the Lego News Show, which now that I think about it has been a long time since I've seen any new episodes).

 

By the way, this past weekend, I got a little curious about the game Lego Worlds, so I looked up some videos of it and, even though I watched only about half an hour worth of content, I was surprised to see just how much in common it has with the Lego Movie 2 Videogame (so it seems that game's mechanics are not quite as brand new as we thought). Although it is technically a sandbox type of game, i found out that when you start up that game, you have almost nothing to work with, so you have to unlock items and tools and characters as you progress through a series of different worlds. As far as I can tell from the achievements list, the main goal (essentially the closest thing it has to a story mode) is to complete quests to collect gold bricks and improve your ranking until you eventually reach 100 for the title of "Master Builder"; and the ultimate goal (essentially going for 100% completion) is to find and collect everything there is available, including the extremely hard to find "legendary bricks". Put simply, if you ever get a chance to purchase Lego Worlds, I would now actually recommend it (especially since you found the Lego Movie 2 Videogame so interesting).

 

As for what to play next week, I honestly can't really think of a sure choice (I noticed there was a poll in the stream itself, but didn't vote in it due to my uncertainty at this time). One option, I really am interested in seeing the explorer worlds of the Lego Movie 2 game, not to mention the DLC worlds once they become available. Another option, if you wish to continue testing the stream with an already completed game like Marvel Superheroes, I can at least tell you where to go to access the bonus levels, now that I've actually got some experience with it myself. Or if you'd rather get started on another game you've not yet tried, my preference would be for Pirates of the Caribbean, as that's my favorite of the older Lego games. So yeah, I'm pretty indecisive on continuing Lego Movie 2 Videogame, trying the bonus levels of Lego Marvel Superheroes, or starting up Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. I guess I'll leave it up to you on which of those three choices you're more interested in.

I think my video capture software fell behind on rendering and streaming, so even though I did respond to your comment and said some closing thoughts, it all got cut off when I stopped the stream because I guess it hadn't caught up yet. I'll see about toning down the quality a little for next time to see if that helps.

That's also interesting to hear about LEGO Worlds. I have seen it on sale a few times but have never bitten the bullet - next time I guess!

Seeing as the Lego Movie 2 Videogame is now finished, I'd like to say a few additional comments.

 

After I saw the movie, I was definitely looking forward to seeing what the video game adaption would be like. Of course, I had anticipated it would be like most of the other Lego games, with levels and characters with different abilities, so I was imagining what such a game could be like. For example, It was easy for me to believe the title for collecting a certain amount of studs in each level would be "Master Breaker", which would also be a certain ability used by Rex and later Emmet as well. I imagined some levels had you play as just Emmet and Rex, then after Sweet Mayhem was unmasked there would be a level playing as her and Lucy, and later you would be part of the epic space battle against Rex's raptor army, and the final part of the final level would have you playing as Emmet and Lucy while fighting against Rex at "Undar of the Dryar".

 

But as we all know now, all that speculation I had flew right out the window once we saw the actual game followed a Lego Worlds style of gameplay (not enough character interaction and too much Lucy monologuing, in my opinion).

First of all, while there was definitely less freezing than last week, I had a bit of an audio issue where basically the quality suffered. I had assumed the issue was due to my headphones (which has happened before, where simply rotating the audio jack is enough to alter the sound quality), but since I didn't want to miss much of the stream, I waited until after the stream to figure it out. However, when I played a YouTube video immediately afterwords, the audio quality was perfectly fine, so I honestly don't know if the issue was my headphones or something with the stream.

 

As for my reasons for disliking the Lego Harry Potter games, while the story mode content was fine (which means I'll have no issues with watching you play it on Twitch Tuesday), it was once I got into freeplay mode that I started seeing major issues. While other Lego games automatically unlock characters you've previously played as, in the Harry Potter games, Harry, Hermione, and Ron are the only ones ever given to you, while literally every single other character (including ones you play as in levels such as Hagrid) must be unlocked by finding and collecting the character tokens (either in levels or in the hub world), and then purchasing the characters unlocked by these tokens. I found this problematic as the main three don't have all the character abilities, forcing you to really figure out where to find the tokens you absolutely need, even with the aid of a guide. In addition, things in the hub world do not reset (unlike every other Lego game I'm familiar with), no matter how often you come back from levels or reload the game, meaning that in some cases if you destroy something you shouldn't have or enter certain rooms without having the proper characters already active, you could potentially end up stuck somewhere. This is especially troublesome with the first game, making it (as far as I know) the only Lego game where certain mistakes could make 100% completion technically impossible, at which point your only solution is to start an entirely new game from the very beginning. Thankfully, the second game avoids this serious risk, though it still has the annoyance of a non-reseting hub world and trying to figure out where to find the right character tokens. (Who knows? Maybe this "remastered" edition you're looking to get might have dealt with some of these issues, but I honestly doubt it.)

 

Like I said last week, Lego Worlds is not quite so open when you start up a new game, as you start out with almost nothing available and you must complete quests and collect gold bricks to unlock new tools and items and characters (much like the Lego Movie 2 Videogame), so there is a purpose to it at first, though it eventually becomes more open as you progress.

 

Honestly, I don't care which of these games you decide to get. I'll still watch them either way.

I just read through some reviews on the LEGO Harry Potter remaster and it seems like some of the old glitches are still there. I think I'll be picking up LEGO Worlds then and we can check that out next week!

Also, next week's stream will likely be on Monday instead of Tuesday.
