LEGO DIMENSIONS Discontinued

LEGO Announces end of video-game tie-in theme

LEGO will stop producing new entries into the DIMENSION line, effective immediately.  The company announced that the game servers will continue to run and all existing expansion packs will remain available for purchase, but they have pulled the plug on any new additions to the theme.

What Was DIMENSIONS?

DIMENSIONS was LEGO’s attempt at creating a video-game tie-in.  Players/builders would buy a base set for the console of their choice (current or previous generation Xbox and also WiiU were supported).  That would give them access to the game and a few characters from various themed universes.  From there, builders could buy small expansion packs which included small LEGO sets, typically a figurine or two along with some combination of vehicles and/or gadgets.  Players would build them and use their base set to import them into their game.  The expansions would contain new video game material on top of the new LEGOs, typically a new level or world to explore.

LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack - PlayStation 4
  • LEGO characters from a mix of some of the best brands in the universe join forces and battle in worlds outside of their own. A Dark Knight, a Wizard, and a LEGO Master Builder traveling together down the Yellow Brick Road is just the beginning.
  • By purchasing additional expansion packs, players can grow their collection with a variety of their favorite brands to create even more crazy combinations.
  • Bring up to seven , vehicles and/or gadgets into the game all at once by dropping them on the LEGO Toy Pad for the most exciting and action-filled game around.

How Was It?

It was a lot of fun.  The mash-up possibilities essentially bring to life what LEGO builders have been doing for years: combining many different worlds into one.  Want to take Gandalf and Bart Simpson through a Scooby-Doo mystery?  Go for it.  The amount of IP that was represented in the DIMENSIONS series was fairly astounding:

Adventure Time, Back to the Future, Beetlejuice, DC Comics, Doctor Who, E.T., Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Harry Potter), Ghostbusters, Goonies, Harry Potter, Jurassic World, LEGO Batman Movie, LEGO City, LEGO Chima, LEGO Ninjango, Midway Arcade, Mission Impossible, Portal 2, The Powerpuff Girls, Scooby-Doo, Sonic the Hedgehog, Teen Titans, The A-Team, The Gremlins, The LEGO Movie, The Lord of the Rings, The Simpsons, The Wizard of Oz.

Phew.  There are some deep cuts in that list, image the possibilities you can put together.  It is truly impressive the wide range of IP LEGO was able to offer in the DIMENSIONS line.

What Went Wrong?

Good question.  The basic idea holds a ton of appeal, who wouldn’t want to mash-up that impressive list of characters?  No matter your taste in pop culture, there are likely multiple options for you.  The first thing that has to be considered is price.  The starter packs run $90 for the current generation consoles, but can be found for about $65 on Amazon.  That’s already more than the price of a standard video game.  You do get the really cool base unit, of course, but if somebody is comparing DIMENSIONS to a high profile video game release, paying more for a LEGO game might be a tough sale.  Additionally, the expansions aren’t exactly cheap.  Broken down into three categories, Story Pack, Team Pack, and Fun Pack, they typically run about $45, $25, and $15, respectively.  It is very easy to imagine the price tag of owning and multiple expansions ballooning out of control with these prices.  An Xbox One starter pack and the cheapest, smallest expansion would be over $100 if you pay MSRP.

More importantly, perhaps, is the cost to LEGO to keep the series going.  The cost to keep the servers running couldn’t be cheap, not to mention the development that goes into each new expansion pack to bring the characters, worlds, and stories into the video game world.

Ultimately, the toy-based video game market just wasn’t there.  LEGO put forth a fine effort, releasing a quality video game and, of course, great LEGO sets, but ultimately they weren’t able to get a big enough audience to make it work.  It is unfortunate for fans of the series, but ultimately better for LEGO than pouring money into a losing proposition.

Can I Still Play?

Yes! LEGO has said the servers will remain online and all existing expansions will continue to be sold.  LEGO won’t be pulling everything off the shelf and shutting down the entire online system, which is great news.  There is no word on how long the servers will be up, but it might be a good time to jump into DIMENSIONS as the prices on some of the sets will likely drop with this news.

Women of NASA Set Coming Soon

LEGO Announces new set available November 1

Many great things have come from the LEGO Ideas website.  For those unfamiliar, it is a website which allows users to submit ideas for new LEGO sets.  Other users show support for an idea and, if enough people are interested, the set might get made.  It is a fantastic idea to engage such an involved community as the LEGO builders of the world.  Some notable sets to get their start from Ideas have been Dr. Who, the Ghostbusters ECTO-1, and WALL-E.  They’ve always produced some great NASA themed sets previously, including the Mars Rover and Apollo Saturn V.

The Women of NASA will add to this legacy by giving us four women who helped shape the NASA program over the years.  This follows up the previously released Research Institute set, which also got its start on the LEGO Ideas website, in featuring women in STEM fields.  Here at BrickScouts we love to see these kinds of positive messages being sent out from LEGO, we hope Women of NASA sells extremely well and helps inspire the next generation of great thinkers.

Antivirus Protection for Gaming: Here’s Why You Need to Get It

Gaming isn’t as safe as it used to be anymore. Even if you’re playing on a secure server that only you and your buddies have access to, that doesn’t guarantee protection against viruses. The hackers know very well that players don’t really like to install antivirus software, as they believe it slows down the performance. That’s exactly why today, the fans of Battle Royale, or any other game, are targets for cybercriminals.

So, what can you do to safeguard yourself and your gaming device from the attackers? Download and install a reliable security suite with an adequate system impact, of course! The TotalAv antivirus review by Jack Wallen claims it to be a nice option for protection, and there’s a lot of truth to that. But let us talk more about the most critical features instead of focusing on one single product.

Things to look for in an Antivirus for Gaming

Alright, now that we know that you do, indeed, NEED protection when playing your favorite titles online, it’s time to get down to business. What should you look for in a commercial antivirus program? Is it a low price, a long list of extra features, or maybe a user-friendly interface?

Low System Impact

As we already mentioned, this is the #1 concern for most gamers. The good news is – most leading antivirus programs have a very low system impact when they’re protecting the OS in the background. With that said, some solutions require up to 700MB of RAM, 2-3GB of hard-drive space, and a lot of CPU power. You can check the system requirements for all the supported platforms (like Windows and macOS) on the official websites.

Gaming Mode – No Pop-Ups

Also known as the Silent Mode, the Gaming Mode is a life-savior for the players. When activated, it stops all scheduled security scans, update downloads, and system restarts. Plus, you won’t see any annoying pop-up messages right in the middle of a heated battle in the Gaming mode. The most advanced Silent Modes are known to optimize the system resources and improve overall performance, which is always great news.

A Safe Browser and a VPN

These days, gamers make many donations, spend money on new loot boxes in “browser” games, and more. To secure your online transactions, we highly recommend installing a safe browser. It will keep the hackers from stealing your logins-passwords and getting access to your bank account(s). Most gaming-oriented antiviruses have a free browser available for all users – make sure to use it!

A VPN can further improve your online security. Routing the traffic through a secure, encrypted server makes it literally impossible for third parties (cybercriminals, government agencies, and even your ISP) to access the raw data. Plus, a VPN provides easy access to otherwise-blocked geo-restricted websites and resources.

Most Important Extras

A built-in system optimizer for boosting the overall performance will always come in handy. First of all, it will eliminate junk files on your drives and free up much-needed space. Secondly, it will reduce the system startup time, make the browser work faster, and more. Don’t expect it to make wonders happen, of course, but a good set of tune-up tools can, indeed, improves performance.

Next, webcam protection is arguably the most critical additional feature/tool you can get with an antivirus. Most gamers have a web-camera, and if the hackers manage to get their hands on it, that can turn into a disaster. Also, look for a program that protects the microphone as well.

And what about the number of simultaneously protected devices, you might ask? Well, it all depends on your needs. If you mostly play on one single device, there will be no need to pay for more extensive coverage. On the other hand, some folks like to play on their desktop computers, tablets, and even Smartphones. For them, multi-device protection is a must.

This is not a drill! New UCS Millennium Falcon is available today!

This is not a drill! New UCS Millennium Falcon is available today!

The Millennium Falcon is maybe the most iconic ship from the most iconic movie series of all time.  As such, it’s easy fodder for fantastic Lego sets.  As our friends Ninja Brick points out, there has already been an excellent UCS edition (10179) and a recent edition based off of the Falcon from The Force Awakens (75105).  So what could Lego possibly bring to the table with yet another version?  Oh, I don’t know, maybe the largest Lego set ever put on the market?  7,541 pieces easily set the record.  Those pieces will cost you a cool $800, but if you’re going to buy the largest Lego set ever sold, at least it’s going to be awesome.  Let’s take a look at some of the notable features.

A New Hope or The Force Awakens?

Both! The amazing build can easily switch between trilogies simply by removing/replacing a few pieces, most notably the inclusion, or absence, of the main dish on top.  That’s great and all, but what about old Han vs. young Han?  Worry not, the set comes with minifigurine sets from both the old and recent trilogies. Our friends at Ninja Brick have more about this. 

Speaking of Minifigurines…

The full rundown of the ten included:  Original trilogy: Leia, Han, C-3P0.  New trilogy: Old Han, Rey, Finn, BB-8.  Chewbacca is also included, he covers both.  These aren’t just re-packed figures either, many are exclusives.  The original trilogy figures are modeled after The Empire Strikes back, Han and Leia are completely new designs and include the two-sided heads with the back side having them wear respirators as they did while out and about inside of the giant space slug.  If you’re counting along with me, that only leaves eight minifigures, where a few sentences ago I promised ten, what gives?  Well, the last two are twin “things” which appear in episode 8.  As such, they don’t have names or a purpose yet.  All we know are they are adorable and roughly the size of BB-8.  There is also a mynock, which isn’t quite a minifigure, but does represent those pesky, cable-eating creatures from the movies.

Those Curves Though

The biggest visual difference on the exterior of the set compared to other versions is how many curves it includes.  As it inevitable without some serious design work, the older versions tended to end up on the blocky side.  That’s not an issue here as brand new pieces have been created to properly capture the look of this fantastic beast of a ship.   Another fantastic exterior feature is a working boarding ramp, perfect for those quick getaways.  

The Interior

This thing is packed with easily accessible interior features.  The classic holo-chess board if, of course, included here, along with easy access to escape pods which should make for some fun playability.  The interior is accessed by removing small panels from the top of the build, this is a change from the previous Falcon with the rotating top panels which, when opened, gave the appearance of a half-peeled orange.  Being able to fully remove small panels allows the ship to retain its classic look while granting access to the awesome interior features.

The Verdict

Who knows?  At $800 and 7,500+ pieces, this beast is going to be scrutinized unlike any other set to come before it.  We will get our review posted as soon as I have time to build it.  In the meantime, it can’t be denied how amazing this thing looks.  If you are reading this then you are some combination of Lego and Star Wars fan, and since I comfortably fit in both of those categories I know how fantastic this looks.  

E-Sports

The Most Successful E-sports Teams

The world of e-sports has come to stay. The innovations that are happening in the sphere of technology have deepened the meaning and significance of such sports. The industry is growing in popularity and worth. It is running so fast in the bid to catch up with other types of sports activities in the amount of money involved in tournaments and competitions. Within the last few years, nobody would have expected the professional e-sports teams to get to the level they are today. But they have beaten all odds and now have a place in the world sports scene. A look at the outcome of tournaments, the sponsorships, the number of fans and viewership, and the volume of social media following, reveals that some teams are bigger than others.

Fnatic

This is a London based e-sports teams that have been in existence since 2014. One could say that it is one of the biggest of them all, and in essence, one of the most popular and richest. It has a fan spread that cuts across the whole world and have been doing so well in tournaments in the past years.  It is estimated that the group is worth more than $42 million, and one of their major strengths involve well packaged merchandising and marketing. The pioneer edition of the League of Legends tournament was picked by them. In the social media, they are followed by more than 2 million fans. Their teams are involved in League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Dota 2, CSGO, and Overwatch.

Cloud9

This is another wonderful and very popular e-sports team. They have great teams in most of the e-sports games. with an estimated worth of $30 million, they play in the CSGO, Overwatch, Smash Bros, League of Legends, Hearthstone, Vainglory, and Call of Duty. They also have a selection of streamers. One amazing thing about the Cloud9 team is that they have succeeded in achieving all these within the shortest possible timeframe. They came to the scene only in 2013.

Team SoloMid

Ask any of the fans of the League of Legends about the Team SoloMid (aka TSM), and they will tell you a lot about them if they are really informed fans. This is a North America based e-sports team, and real e-sports betting tips are banking on them to take over the future. Some of the most loved and most popular players are on this team. They include the man named Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg and his teammate Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng. Apart from the League of Legends where they are famous, their teams are also found in Vainglory teams, Hearthstone, CSGO and Super Smash Bros. They are worth around $27.4 million, and their fans are so die-in-the-wood that they can actually kill for them.

Evil Geniuses

When you talk about the trailblazers in the e-sports world, then you need to consider the Evil Geniuses. They came on board in 1999 and have built something awesome since then. Though established by Alexander Garfield as a Canadian counter strike team, they are based in the United States, and their net worth is estimated to be around $27.3 million. In 2015, Dota 2 tournament, their team came first and took home the $6m prize money. They came back in 2016 and took the third position – also going home with $2 million. They have a professional team for Halo, and their teams also play in the Street Fighter V and the StarCraft II.

The Best Ergonomic Gaming Chairs 2020

Finding an ergonomically optimized gaming chair is often easier said than done. Lack of regulation gives marketers the freedom to hype their products the way they want, and many times gamers receive the complete opposite of what they ordered. To make things worse, most players don’t know the first thing about ergonomics, so only a few will know they are being defrauded. We want to save you the hassle of performing overly-extensive research as you look for a suitable chair. Here are five chairs we reckon would complement your gaming PC experience:

1.   Maingear Forma-R Nero

The Maingear Forma features one of the most balanced blends of functionality, sturdiness, and flexibility. On it, you can rotate 360 degrees and lean back almost 180 degrees without tipping over. The Maingear’s design gives it an ergonomic weight limit of about 330 pounds, meaning it can support just about anyone.

The best part about investing in this chair is that it is versatile and can fit well in an office setting thanks to its lumbar pillow backrest and head pillow for neck support, its super-quiet casters, and the fact that it is relatively lightweight.

2.   Herman Miller Aeron Task Chair

The Herman Miller Aeron is one of the chairs recommended at High Ground Gaming, and it is not difficult to see why. Not only is it fashioned out of recycled material, but it also sports advanced ergonomic features based on science and research. Its elastomeric seat and backrest feature eight different tension zones, which combine to envelop your frame and add to its ergonomic support. People who shift extensively when playing may find this chair quite handy as it is designed to move with the body without losing balance anywhere along the recline range.

3.   Secretlab Titan 2020 Series

The Secretlab Titan supports users up to six feet and seven inches tall and 290 pounds heavy, and comes as one of the most accommodative chairs in our list. Its ergonomic feature assortment is highlighted by a large backrest and a matching lumbar pillow cushion as well as adjustable armrests which can swivel in all directions – forward, backward, upward, and downward.

Secretlab seems to have spent quite the time optimizing the aesthetic aspect, too, as the chair comes in special edition models tailored for different tastes.

4.   Vertagear Racing Series

The comfort of a chair is determined by how well it combines the various sitting ergonomic factors. The Vertagear Racing Series is built with virtually everything we can think of in mind. Its steel frame gives it a much-needed sturdiness to support all the weight from long gaming sessions, and the gamer doesn’t have to give up their comfort. The chair comes with an additional set of lumbar pillows and a memory foam headrest. There are ventilators beneath the headrest to ensure free airflow is not altered. The armrests and height are adjustable as well, so the gamer’s height will not affect their gaming experience.

Conclusion

While there is nothing wrong with prioritizing your aesthetic and quality standards, ergonomics should never be ignored. The above chairs are the complete packages for any gamer who cares about their comfort and health.

Retiring Set: The Lighthouse Siege (70594)

The Ninjago line of Lego sets has been a pretty great story to watch unfold.  The series was originally planned to end just a couple of years after it began, but the popularity allowed it to stick around.  It has spawned a popular television series which is now going on seven seasons, and is next in line to receive the Lego Movie treatment.  This particular set includes a really awesome tower with a load of interactive play features, a great looking jet, seven mini-figurines, and a slew of weapons.  The Ninjago sets have always been designed around playability and this set is no exception, there are too many features to list, but rest assured they are there in bunches and a lot of fun.  Or, you know, just check out the official Lego description below. At the time of this writing, The Lighthouse Siege is still available on both Amazon and Lego Shop for MSRP or less.  It has been officially announced by Lego as retiring soon, so we don’t expect supplies to last long. The Ninjago set line has always been a ton of fun, and this set is no exception. As a collector, often the value is tied into aesthetics rather than play, but Ninjago is an exception.  With the movie coming out later this year there will be a ton of new sets released, but also increased demand for older sets like this one.  Since this is truly a really fun set, this one seems like a great set to pick up while you still can.
