From the minds that brought us the LEGO: Star Wars, LEGO: Batman and LEGO: Indiana Jones video games, comes the next logical step… LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes. This game will be available for pretty much every conceivable console platform and will feature the same type of game play we loved in the previous LEGO titles. It will also feature many Marvel Universe characters, such as Iron Man, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Thor, Captain America, the Hulk, Deadpool and many others.
The plot involves Nick Fury calling together many Marvel Universe super heroes to save Earth from various threats.
From the press release:
LEGO Marvel Super Heroesoffers an original storyline in which Nick Fury calls upon Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and other heroes spanning the Marvel Universe to save Earth from such threats as the vengeance of Loki and the hunger of Galactus, Devourer of the Worlds. LEGO and Marvel fans will enjoy classic LEGO videogame adventure and humor, while playing as their favorite Marvel characters.
Mega Man (or Rockman for you Japan addicts) turns 25 this year. Coincidentally, Street Fighter also celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. What better way to celebrate both events than by playing this free fantastical mash-up of both games?

The peak of the Geminid Meteor Shower was last night, but you can still see plenty of meteors falling towards Earth tonight. Just get somewhere away from any bright city lights, bundle up and lay back and watch as much of the sky as you can. There should be as many as a couple “shooting stars” per minute. Get your wishes ready.

These guys aren’t geeks – they’re rock stars – but several of them have geeky tendencies. They play songs from Weezer, Beck, Cake, Violent Femmes, Radiohead, R.E.M., Beastie Boys, The Pixies, Phoenix, Interpol, The Flaming Lips and many other great artists. And the music and vocals are always top notch.
