Here’s your first look at the Legofied dinos in Lego Jurassic World

LEGO Jurassic World Video Game Trailer (PS4/Xbox One/Wii U)
Take a look at Lego Jurassic World in action with a gameplay trailer for the upcoming game. Teased in February 2014, this is the first gameplay footage of TT Games’ Lego adaptation of the Jurassic Park film franchise. The game arrives on Nintendo, PlayStation, Windows, and Xbox platforms in June.

Lego Jurassic World combines the stories of all three previous Jurassic Park films in addition to the upcoming fourth film, Jurassic World, which is set to release on June 12 around the same time that the game arrives. The trailer shows off familiar scenes, mostly from the iconic 1993 original. Look forward to plenty of dry, cynical witticisms from someone doing their best Jeff Goldblum impression.

Lego Jurassic World isn’t the only game in the series set for a 2015 release; it’ll be followed later in the year by Lego Marvel’s Avengers.

2 Jurassic Park games from your childhood are returning on modern consoles
Dr. Grant distracts the T-Rex in Jurassic Park.

Some retro Jurassic Park games that you might remember from your childhood are coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch as part of the Jurassic Park Classic Games Collection. Limited Run Games plans to reprint the games on their original platforms as well. 
This retro collection will include the NES, Game Boy, and SNES versions of Ocean Software's Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues. These were some of the first games based on the popular series, released in 1993 and 1994, respectively. The franchise continues to get games to this day, with the most recent being the park management game Jurassic World Evolution 2. Still, those who were fans of Jurassic Park in the early 90s and played lots of licensed games might have some fond memories of Ocean Software's titles that they can finally relive on modern platforms.
Limited Run Games handled the development of Jurassic Park Classic Games Collection and revealed its existence during today's LRG3 showcase. Limited Run Games used its Carbon Engine to add new features to the classic games, like save states, and plans to physically release the game. Outside of a $30 standard edition, a $65 classic edition will come with a steelbook and packaging themed after Jurassic Park's VHS case, and a $175 Prehistoric Edition will come with everything from the classic edition, plus a replica of Alan Grant's ID Card, a physical game soundtrack CD, and mini replicas of the original games' cartridges.

Even if you don't play on modern gaming platforms, Limited Run Games will actually be reprinting "retro editions" of Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues on NES, Game Boy, and SNES cartridges. Priced from $50 to $65, the standard editions of these reprints will come on an amber-colored cartridge and come with a replica of the original game manual. A $100 collector's edition will also be available for each game and also have a numbered foil-stamped slipcover and double-sided poster for the Jurassic Park Classic Games Collection.
Preorders for the retro reprints and Jurassic Park Classic Games Collection will begin on September 1 and run until October 15. When the collection eventually releases, it will also be available digitally.

The Outer Worlds 2: release date speculation, trailer, and more

Not to be confused with The Outer Wilds, the indie title that launched in the same year as The Outer Worlds, The Outer Worlds 2 is an upcoming sequel to the dystopian sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment, which Xbox announced during E3 2021. The original game was often referred to as a Fallout game but in space, which makes sense because Obsidian was responsible for what many consider one of the best, Fallout: New Vegas. It was a well-received game, though not without some flaws, leading many to wonder whether or not this new universe would ever come back. Many (including us) were surprised to see news about this game, and while there isn't much to go on just yet, we can make a few informed guesses on details we will get later on. For now, here's everything we know, and suspect, about The Outer Worlds 2. 
Release date

The initial reveal not only didn't have a release date, but was itself a parody of teaser trailers that have little to no information in them. All we can do for now is speculate on when we think The Outer Worlds 2 will actually be ready. The Outer Worlds came out near the end of 2019, but the last chunk of DLC for the game didn't hit until the end of 2021. The best-case scenario would be that a smaller team handled the DLC while another small team got to work on preproduction on the full-fledged sequel, but it is also possible that there was a gap of time before it was actually greenlit.

PS Plus adds Evil Dead, OlliOlli World, and more in February

PlayStation Plus Essential's February game lineup was announced today, and it consists of four titles: OlliOlli World, Evil Dead: The Game, Mafia: Definitive Edition, and Destiny 2: Beyond Light. These games will be available to download starting February 7. Overall, this is a really solid batch of games.

OlliOlli World was one of my personal favorite games of 2022 because of its amazing level design and 2D skateboarding gameplay that only becomes more fun as you get better with the game. "Like the best games of the genre, it knows that easy-to-learn-but-hard-to-master mechanics, rewarding obstacles, and high speeds that test one’s reaction time are the hallmarks of a great platformer," I wrote in a four-and-a-half star review of the game last February.
