Lego Batman 2 Review

So to start off this game is not another Lego game, this game is the FIRST Lego game to include full voice acting. The story starts off with Bruce Wayne getting the Man of the Year award but Joker ruins it all by causing havoc and stealing Bruce's award and its up to Batman and Robin to stop him. The plot of the game is epic because you have Lex Luthor breaking the Joker out of Arkham and they team up to take down Batman and Superman and Robin(never forget Robin). The part that should of been changed is that the Justice League should not have come at the end of the game! The game has the words DC SUPERHEROS on it for goodness sake! Well the gameplay has not changed for Xbox 360 and PS3 but I am not sure about PC but one thing I can tell you is that the game is still fun on all three systems. :)The game is awesome and the voice acting is so cool and funny at the same time but there were a few problems that should be fixed and that is why I give this game a 65.

Lego Movie Videogame Review

Hi everybody today I will be reviewing The Lego Movie Videogame. A simple description for the Lego movie video game is fun. The game does not have as much open world as Lego Marvel Superheroes but it has hub worlds. Each hub world has its own secrets which are fun to find with or without friends and/or family. The story of the game is based on the movie so I suggested you watch the movie before playing the game (if you have not seen it already). The game is about an ordinary Lego construction man named Emmet becomes the most important person in the entire world (of Lego obviously).  Emmet finds a special brick that makes him the most important person in the world, but in every good game there is a bad guy and the bad guy in this game is trying to shoot the entire Lego world with a special gun he calls the “K*********r” (I am not going to spoil any details) and worst of all the bad guy is also the president. But since Emmet is just an ordinary minifigure, he obviously has an awesome team which he does and one of his teammates is Batman!! While trying to stop the bad guy Emmet has to learn how to be a “Master Builder”. The gameplay has not changed except for the fact that female Lego cannot double-jump but they can still jump higher than male Lego. I highly recommend this game for people of all ages, even for all of you C.O.D. players as a de-stress game if you are so angry after getting killed during a killstreak by a noob. I give this game a 75 because there quite a few glitches and the load screens are long but the game has a great story.

Minecraft cake recipe!!

Hi I'm going to be posting on this blog now as well as my own blog (Nintendo Stuff) and in a past post (9 awesome gaming cakes) there was a pic of a Minecraft cake cake (no, I didn't make a mistake), but here is a recipe for a better one by Gourmet Gaming that is taste test approved by me! Yum. ^-^

This recipe makes 2 small cakes.
What you will need: Large mixing bowl, 20x20 square cake tin, small bowl, small pot, sieve, whisk, rolling pin, spatula, greaseproof/baking paper.
For the Cake:
200g / 1½ Cups Plain Flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
200g / 1 Cup Golden Caster/Superfine Sugar
200g / 1 Cup Butter (Room Temperature)
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
3 Medium Eggs (Room Temperature)
3 Tablespoons Milk
For the Frosting:
100g / ½ Cup Dark Chocolate
25g / ¼ Cup Butter
150ml / ⅔ Cup Single Cream
100g - 200g / 1 - 1½ Cups Icing Sugar
To Finish:
White Ready-to-roll Icing
Red Ready-to-roll Icing
Preparing the Cake:
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Grease and line a 20x20cm square cake tin.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy.
Beat the eggs and add them slowly to the butter and sugar along with the vanilla extract.
Sieve in the flour and baking powder then combine it gently into the mixture. Pour into the prepared cake tin and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
Once golden brown and springy, allow to cool and store in the fridge while you prepare the frosting.
Making the Frosting:
In a bain-marie, melt the chocolate, butter and cream together until smooth.
Allow to cool until the mixture thickens slightly, then slowly whisk in the icing sugar until the chocolate is light and fluffy. Allow to cool further before spreading onto the cake.
Making the Cake:
Once the cake has cooled, level it carefully then cut it into 4. You may want to use a cookie cutter or make a template so each piece is of equal size.
Take a portion as your base and add a little frosting to the top of it and layer another piece of cake for the top – set aside.
On a clean work surface, sprinkle some icing sugar and roll out the white icing to about 1 cm thick and cut a piece large enough to comfortably cover the cake.
Spread some frosting on top of the cake and then cover with the white icing. Trim the icing, then cut in the pattern. You may want to make a template and use scissors/scalpel.
Roll out the red icing to about 1cm thick like before and cut out 4 large and 6 small squares, arrange the red squares on top of the cake to match the Minecraft Cake.
Cut appropriately to serve. If you leave the cake you will have to return to the cake to continue eating it.
