Personally, I think its fascinating to see how LEGO has blossomed as a company over the years.

From creating humble building blocks and model kits to developing some of the most beloved family video games of the past two decades, the Danish toymaker has come a long way since it was founded in 1932, diversifying its areas of expertise to keep up with the times. Speaking of video games, it seems the company has decided to do something a little special to commemorate its 25 years in the "field", and that's to release a new ten-episode (or twelve if you include the specials) podcast series titled Bits N' Bricks.  

Hosted by journalist Brian Crecente and documentarian Ethan Vincent, the weekly podcast series will delve into the various aspects of LEGO video games throughout the years, including the team's history and formation. In fact, did you know the video games development team was originally called "Project Darwin"?

Personally, I'm really excited to check out the LEGO Island episode - I have many fond memories of LEGO Island 2 in particular, and it's still one of the best games I've ever played in terms of diversity, gameplay experience and concept. Too bad I can't remember where I kept the disc - bummer.
