Growing up Lego was one of the “toys” that I played with most (that and girder and panel). I would build everything from cars, to towers to spaceships with the multi-colored blocks that I had collected. Lego’s popularity has not waned any since those days, in fact it has seemed to continue to grow as they come up with new and more unique kits for you to construct. Lego just seems to have a knack for understanding how to engage kids and adults alike.
When I opened my email this morning I saw that one of our readers had submitted a link that had me very excited (no it was not porn… sheesh). The title of the article was “Lego ponders Portal pack”. Now I do not know about you, but what that said to me was that Lego was considering adding Portal to their very popular (and fun) Lego line of video games. I have played many of the other Lego series of games and they are great, so of course I was excited about the possibility that Lego would buy into the Portal franchise. Unfortunately, my imagination got away with me and I quickly discovered that the article was not about a game, but an actual Lego set.
