The mixture of classical music with modern hits may appear a little jarring at first, but both should fit into the gameplay of Fantasia.  The game has a series of mini games that you play using the Kinect (you know that thing covered in dust in the corner); some of which use bagin' tunes such as:

We've got some developer created co-op footage here detailing some of the new modes in Rebirth. Player One controls Isaac (or one of his various incarnations), while Player Two takes control of... Well. It's a fetus. I think it's a fetus, at least. Look, this game is really screwed up. Just watch.

Of course, once you upgrade you'll need the requisite Disney Infinity base and figures to play. The reasoning behind this offer? Avalanche Software's Vice President and General Manager John Blackburn explains that in the year since Disney Infinity has launched, the number of Wii U owners has significantly increased. Avalanche wishes to continue to support compatibility for their players. Also, with Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes being due out shortly, Avalanche wants their players to experience the original in HD before the sequel, if they want to.

While Activision and Toys For Bob have been releasing much smaller versions of the Skylanders characters (about half their size) as promo figures, these were normally be used as cosmetic pets in past games, such as Swap Force. In Trap Team, however, these miniatures are being upgraded to be fully playable, able to gain levels, and develop full skill trees! Little about how the mini characters will differ from their bigger brethren is known, thought. We do know, however, that the mini Skylanders will be sold in pairs per character pack. Feel free to check out the gallery below for a closer look at many of the minis.

All the hubbub these days is focused on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which is due mid-October. Until then, an attractive 2K Games sale is going to distract us with some significant discounts on games like Borderlands, Borderlands 2, Bioshock Infinite and Civilization V. From now through August 24th you can nab them all for about a fourth of their original price. This even includes the Borderlands 2 season pass and Game of the Year edition, which has so many extras it would be boring to type them all out.

For those of you who are not aware, Surgeon Simulator's challenge comes from the game's control rather than direct obstacles (think Octodad: Dadliest Catch). Players assume the role of a surgeon from first-person view, controlling a single arm and hand. Each finger is controlled by a certain button and getting the right combination of appendages in the proper location can be difficult, mainly to pick up and utilize tools in an operation. Depending on your ability to control your movements, you'll more than likely damage your patients at some point and cause them to lose blood (their lifebar). If you can complete the operations without losing your patients to blood loss, then you win. Simple as that, right? With a co-op partner, not particularly.

Taking place in the future, anyone with a specific gene can enter the world of video games and movies. With all the different genres, and not to mention the class of real and fictional characters, it's pure chaos. An establishment known as SHIELDD, (Somewhat Heroic Insiders Establishing Life's Defense Department), is formed, and protagonist Penny is recruited to the group.

Actually, Sonic Boom is a pair of games, one for Wii U and one for 3DS, with slight interface and graphical changes to accommodate the smaller screens. The portable version is Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal and will hit the U.S. market on November 11 and the UK November 21. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for Wii U is out a week later in the U.S. but the same day in the UK. Why? Because Sonic is just that fast.

Out in the big scary world of space there are some aliens. They've got their alien eye-things on [your planet] and really want to move there, displacing you and your people in the process. How does one deal with a situation like that? With guns, lots of guns. And shooting aliens with said guns. Fly through wave after wave of aliens, laser planets, wormholes and asteroids as you take down big bosses and just generally feel good about yourself for being so world-savey.
