Galactic Gaming News #18 – Week of July 14th


Ryan Murphy with a look at this week’s video game headlines from out of this world.  The video game industry mourns the loss of Satoru Iwata, Nintendo President. Futurama is coming back as a mobile game and the Doctor invades LEGO Dimensions.

Satoru Iwata, Nintendo President, has passed away at age 55

It’s been a somber start to the week with the news of Iwata’s passing, released Sunday evening.

Futurama is back, in video game form!

While a new TV season of the hit show is not in the cards, we’ll at least be able to experience this universe again in a new mobile game.

The Doctor invades LEGO dimensions

I’m a Doctor Who newbie, but a fan none the less. As a general geek you’d think Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future, Ninja Turtles or Portal would have me salivating for LEGO Dimensions. But it turns out it was the Tardis and Peter Capaldi that would have me wanting this game.
