I sure am, and from the looks of it, the framerate looks much better, I remember it being awful in the vids from E3.

Glad this didn't make it to launch, and this is an exclusive so it won't run into the common issues. Looking at the others, if this was LOTR or LB2 or whatnot, yeah, issues a plenty, considering Lego games are known for them on their own.

Now when is this coming out? I assume before March 31st, Gamefly says TBD.

I'm a sucker for sandbox games and I like the idea behind it. Lego games a usually fun for a few hours but a bit shallow to me so I'll wait for some reviews.

I really like the idea. It could become the GTA for Nintendo Consoles. And who doesn´t like Lego?

If it's anywhere near as good as Lego Batman 2: DC Universe I'm all over this one.

Very excited by it. Really like that they finally made an original Lego game and not one based on existing property. Looks to have a good sense of humor and charm to it.

Strange that we don't have a release date yet but I have seen the commercial on TV. That would lead me to believe that it will be out before the end of the year.

What is the hook of this game, exactly? Outside of the fact that it's not LEGO (insert well-known IP here), I'm not seeing what's making it so different from the other games.

For someone like me who is not a huge fan of the "adult" content in games like GTA and Saint's Row, but likes sandbox games, I could see myself enjoying this. I'll wait for reviews, though.

I remember it was originally announced for Wii U and 3DS, but I haven't heard or seen anything about that version.

Looks great, Gamestop has it listed for next year though, which is fine by me, I've got 5 games right now that take up my time and getting 2 more for the holidays, this will be a good game to play when I'm not Monster Hunting early next year haha just to break up the monotony

For me it depends on how good is the driving, which from impressions, is actually bad at least in terms of handling; so, so far no.

It's almost the end of November. There is literally zero chance of it coming out before January anywhere.

Likely going to get it, but that commercial doesn't sway me either way. Never going to be a fan of the way that Nintendo (of America) has chosen to market this console and its games. There have to be more effective ways of both grabbing people's attention and getting out your game's selling points than barraging people with shrill, obnoxious music and bullet-point narration that fails to convey any enthusiasm for the product.

I'll wait to see how the game is received before taking the plunge, but I do have a feeling I will enjoy it.

I was probably never going to get the game, but I can say that it looks pretty cool. One of the best of the E3 showings.

That said, the commercial was pretty terrible.

The game looks really fun and interesting, however I'm pretty fatigued from the Lego games in general. I don't know if I'd want to bother with this one or not.

It's certainly the most interesting Lego game in a couple years - I can't be the only one who's fatigued of the licensed franchise ones coming out every quarter - but it's not interesting enough to warrant a purchase for me.

me too, said it also at E3 that it looks good graphically. The tearing in the E3 version was also fixed in September (based on the trailer).

A) I've always been annoyed that the environments in LEGO games aren't built out of LEGOs.

B) If any Wii U game needed to be the poster child for NFC, this game is it.

It's rather strange that Nintendo is advertising the title when we don't even have a release date for it yet.
