The final three figures for Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure will be available in the near future. Camo, Warnado, and Wham Shell will complete the Life, Air, and Water elements, respectively. At last, my collection will be complete! Just kidding. I gave up on the idea of "collecting them all" when I saw the price go north of 15 bucks on Amazon. Fella's got to eat.
Did you make the mistake of picking up Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure a few months ago? You did? My condolences. Don't get me wrong, the game is a heckuva lot of fun. It's even better with a friend. The problem is that procuring the little action figures is akin to a crack addiction, or so I've heard. The starter kit (which is only like $50 right now on Amazon) comes with the game, the techno-magic portal, and three characters. This is apparently just enough to get you hooked on spending $10 bucks a pop for additional figurines.
Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure is one of the most unusual games I've ever played. It is much more than just a game; it is a media juggernaut including a toyline, an adventure game on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii, a platformer for the 3DS, and even a light MMO on the PC or Mac. The various components work together seamlessly due to the innovative design of the toys themselves. It is incredibly polished, and it's clear that careful thought was given to even the smallest details.
Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure is out this Sunday - October 16th - on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo 3DS. The two player co-op title combines real world figures with video games for a unique experience that allows you to bring your character to any of the systems. The retail package comes with everything you need to get going for your respective system - game, portal and three figures.
Activision has sent word that they have teamed up with toy store Toys "R" Us to launch the impressive co-op game, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. We went hands on with the game at E3 and were incredibly impressed by the title, not only for it's unique technology, but for it being a fun family friendly game too.
The latest trailer for Skylanders: Spyro's Adventures has hit the intertubes. Shot in a commercial style format, one remincent of what you'd see between Saturday morning cartoons, this trailer makes you wish you were a kid again. Screw it, I'm still a kid - and I'm totally getting these things when it comes out.
Skylander's: Spryo's Adventure was a game that shocked us at E3. The family friendly co-op title utilizes real world toys to save persistent characters to play on any platform you wish. It was really impressive.
Every year I loved to be surprised by games I had absolutely no interest in before E3. My game for day one of E3 was Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. To call it a game though, is a bit of an understatement, in reality Skylanders is a new product line from Activision that melds the character collection of Pokemon with an action adventure game and versus battle brawler all rolled into one. Oh, did I mention there's real figures to collect that save your character data and transmit it between platforms like the Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii?
