What started as a Star Wars phenomenon, has certainly grown. There are now LEGO-themed video games for franchises like Indiana Jones, Batman, and even Rock Band. There's even a future update to the Star Wars line-up coming in February of 2011, based on the Clone Wars story arch. And now another successful franchise is about to get the block rework, as Disney has formally announced that the latest LEGO game from TT Games, LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game will be hitting retail shelves next year.

Very first of all, let me point you toward our big time huge post: Holiday Gift Guide 2010! It's full of EVERYTHING you could ever want (this year.) Then we've got reviews of both the Verizon AND the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Tab (both!), a review of a bigtime thin Full HD panel display, and an expanded look at all the stuff Mark Zuckerberg said about the future of communication today at the Facebook announcement event.

Despite the fact that we're knee deep in the advancements of technology here, we still have a major soft spot for LEGOs. Especially when they get put to use other than buildings forts (though, those can be pretty cool, too). This time around, we get to see what it would look like to be the Master Chief, from Bungie's prodigal Halo series of video games, exclusively available for Microsoft's Xbox and Xbox 360 consoles.
Geeks like to build stuff out of Lego. It's a fact of life. Geeks also like Christmas, that's when we tend to get new gadgets and stuff. The only downside to decorating for the holidays is that the setting up your tree can be a real pain in the rear.
Creationary! And if that weren't cool enough, it's FREE! Incase you haven't heard of this miraculous game, it's basically the same as Pictionary, that game where you get a word, have to draw it, and your team has to guess what it is. What Creationary is is the same thing, only instead of drawing with a pencil, you're putting together a model with LEGO bricks. Now that fabulous concept is coming to the iPad. It's the "First Official LEGO® iPad Application" and it's going to be super freaking awesome. Also it's available for download right now.
Christmas ornaments have been in stores around here since a few weeks before Halloween. With November here holiday commercials are playing on TV and you can find all the decorations you need for Christmas everywhere.

Panasonic kills analog turntables (+ my heart), Verizon and AT&T start selling iPads, and we've got about a million unboxings, reviews, and compare threads. All this and MORE on todays DAILY SLASH!

The most recent Duracell Toy Report suggests that kids don't have no mo love for the Nerfs and Legos of our childhood. I say yours and mine because I'm relatively young for the world and I only got my first computer when I was in my teenage years, and I know the majority of the people on the internet still are people my age. I enjoyed action figures. According to Duracell, kids have switched over to Apple gadgets, Playstations, and Harry Potter video games.
LEGO has released an official app for Android smartphones that allows users to remotely control their Mindstorm NXT robots by moving the handset. LEGO MINDroid is a free download for Android 2.1 phones or above, and creates a Bluetooth link between the handset and the NXT controller block.
