For those of you without a Wii U, there are a lot of games that you've missed out on over the years. Most of them have been first party titles like Splatoon, or Mario Kart 8. One amazing game that was exclusive to the Wii U was LEGO City Undercover. LCU is basically GTA meets LEGO but you're a good guy.
I've never been a huge fan of the LEGO series. I appreciate that they are well made, and often quite humorous. but overall I just find them to be dull. Similarly I've never liked GTA either. (Other than Vice City that music pulled me in) I don't like the way they control, and the subject matter is always a bit racey for my taste. I've got an 8 year old, and I try and keep my games pretty 8 year old friendly. (Not all of them though).
Today WBGames announced that they are bringing LEGO City Undercover to the Switch. Now even though I'm not a fan of LEGO games, or GTA there was something about LCU that clicked with me. I didn't finish it but I had a lot of fun playing what I did. The humor was spot on, and I like that they weren't trying to tie things into a known franchise. I feel like it gave the writers of the game a lot more freedom to make some really hilarious moments happen.
In addition to The Switch the game is also coming to the Xbox One and PlayStation4 as well as Steam. If the Switch wasn't on that list I would probably be picking it up for the PC to play on Steam. However now I have a bit of a dilemma. Do I buy it for portability on the Switch, or on Steam where my library follows me from computer to computer forever.
Are you interested in LCU? If so which platform?
