Battle Bards Episode 166: LEGO Universe


Who knew that interlocking brick systems would result in so many video games — and a pretty good soundtrack? The Battle Bards step on many small bricks on their way to reach LEGO Universe, the now-defunct MMO that only ran for a couple of years. Tune in for a high-octane trip through toys, tunes, and alliteration as Syp, Steff, and Syl regress to their childhood!

Battle Bards is a the world’s first, best, and only MMO music podcast. Biweekly episodes alternate between examining a single MMO’s soundtrack and exploring music tracks revolving around a theme. MOP’s Justin co-hosts with bloggers Steff and Syl. The cast is available on iTunesGoogle PlayTuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

I was just thinking the other day about wanting to play a Lego MMORPG. Not like that horrible minifigures one, however (there was a browser lego minifigures game that was better than that one Funcom released).

Many survival games and games where you could alter things in the world have come out over the past decade that have advanced building genres. Wouldn’t a Lego MMORPG have a fairly decent chance if it was done right today?

There is a Lego sandbox they have that is just too much empty sandbox. I’d like to see one that had more of a base world, NPCs, etc. At the very least have a Conan Exiles or Ark type of world to it all. It would be much better if it was a real MMORPG and all though.

I’d even pay into crowdfunding to see one get made.
