    Lego Rockband Announced

    Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The Lego Group, Harmonix, and MTV Games have all teamed up together, and came up with was Lego Rock Band. Here’s the official reasoning from Tom Stone, Managing Director for TT Games:
    “LEGO Rock Band combines two compelling properties and creates an experience that family members of all ages will enjoy playing together as a group... we’re genuinely thrilled to bring the unique and humor-filled LEGO experience to their Rock Band universe."
    We have a different, simpler explanation: cha-ching! But all kidding aside, that doesn’t mean we’re ready to write this project off yet—let’s face it, Lego-based video games have always been a ridiculous concept, made acceptable by their humor and solid, creative gameplay. Despite being made and aimed squarely at children, Lego Batman and Lego Indiana Jones were both titles that were entertaining for adults as well, even if it was on a, “Oh, that’s funny in a cute sort of way” level.
    On the surface however, Lego Rock Band is missing two of the elements that have made Lego games fun in the past: the distinctive characters of a solid IP, and enough variety in the gameplay to offer creative twists. We’re eager to see what the creative teams behind Lego Rock Band come up with to win over gamers.
