Our Weekend in Gaming - "Cabin Fever" Edition

Spring starts next week in the United States and it couldn't come soon enough.  Despite our love of staying indoors to game, cabin fever has definitely set in for a few of the staff.  Really, this doesn't mean we'll be going outside so much as it means we'll be playing games with the windows open.  The staff has plenty on their plate to play from some classic titles up to the recent releases.

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure is Thunderstruck

If the movie Grandma's Boy has taught us anything, it's that people who work in the gaming industry love to put action figures all over their desks.  Now you can put them in your games.  We're not talking cards here, we are talking action figures!  Or statues.  Action Statues!  When you by a copy of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, you'll get the game, some cards (blah), three action statues, and a Portal!  The Portal will read a microchip on the underside of the toys, enabling you to play as that figure in the game.  There will be 32 total, so this has the potential to be a cash cow.  Each toy starts at level one and can be progressed through level ten.

Remember Gun Loco? It's Cancelled.

Gun Loco is cancelled? Whaaaa? How could this be?  I mean, look at the above photo.  For the sake of sanitiy, lets start with the man in the middle.  Stylized to be sure, determined, definitely.  How about the guy to his left? Okay, we have a case of Toriyama hair, but that's forgivable.  And now the gentleman with the green afro. Nope, nothing offensive here.  What about the guy with the crown?  He must be some sort of king.  I'm sure he will be portrayed with great dignity in the following video (spoiler alert: nope).  Then there's the guy with the bunny head and the suspendered diapers... oh, I give up.

Upcoming Games on Xbox LIVE Market Place

The Xbox LIVE Marketplace has plenty of co-opportunities this month.  Were more than halfway through March, and there's still a ton of gaming on the horizon.  Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime is coming out next week, and there will also be a deal on competitive and co-operative four player games, called Arcade Four-Play.  Is that right?  Really?
