Lego Mass Effect

3 years ago

It today's podcast, I talked about my kiddo being allowed to play Mass Effect if he did cool stuff based on the fiction. Here's a repost of a journal from last year where I posted some of his creations:

My son, Jack, is a lot like me. He and I have a deal: he can play videogames as long as I get to approve them first and he does something creative with what he learns and sees. He usually either writes stories or build these awesome scale lego models of stuff from the games. Or talking my head off (or the head of any adult who will listen) about the fiction in the games. Here's some of his Lego stuff from Mass Effect:

Geth and Geth Prime (<--- linked in case you have no idea what these are)

    Those are actually pretty decent representations of the species and vehicles from Mass Effect. (I actually work in a LEGO art studio, so I know what I'm critiquing.)

    If he had more parts in unified colors, he could probably get away with doing much better further down the line. Still, very good work on his end. It shouldn't take too much effort from here to build up a line of Halo stuff either.

    Does he have any of that Mecano stuff? He'd probably really enjoy it.

    He's pretty good, for a lego builder, get him into stop-motion (but don't make Gavin the teacher, "he'll just f*** it up")
