Now Available for LEGO DimensionsJason Love

The two big packs here are the "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" Story Pack, and the "Sonic the Hedgehog" Level Pack. The former includes a new hero figure (Newt Scamander) and a new vehicle (the Niffler) along with six new levels that follow the story of the film/play/book. It also lets you change the LEGO Gateway on the Portal Pad to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) building. These story packs are the new tier of expansions for LEGO Dimensions this year, with the first one based on the new "Ghostbusters" movie from this past summer.

New Costume Packs, Community Challenges Coming to LittleBigPlanet 3John Bardinelli

The idea behind LittleBigPlanet 3's challenge levels is simple. Every two weeks a new one is rolled out to the community so players can compete for high scores. Each challenge features a slightly different take on a mini-game built with the LBP3 engine. The first one is a survival type arcade game where you push OddSock above the line and avoid fireballs as long as you can. After that it's a side scrolling race, followed by a punch-happy boxing game. The LBP team promises more challenges are in the pipeline, so if you're terrible at one, just kick back and wait for your day in the spotlight.

For the time being, though, we can only ponder LEGO's next step as we play through the "Escape from Starkiller Base" DLC pack.  It features a brand new level, of course, which presumably contains one or more folks "absconding" from some sort of "compound" that can "cause stars to die prematurely".

Kaos is back (again), wreaking havoc in the Skylands (again)! It's up to you and your gigantic Rubbermaid bin of figures from the last five years of Skylanders games to stop him! Oh, who am I kidding. You're going to shell out a couple hundred bucks on the new hotness that is Skylanders Imaginators. Perhaps you'll also invest in a nice ...

The app features the same creation tools that will be featured in Skylanders Imaginators so you can choose a base class and select their features (such as head, torso, weapon, arms, legs), and then give your Skylander a name. If you love your new creation, you can then order a 3d printed figure of them for $49.99, or order a high-quality trading card with a full color image of your custom-made Skylander on it for $14.99. Both the figure and the card can be used with the Imaginators game to bring your creation into the game. It's worth noting, though, that this is the only way to do so.

Any time I see anything remotely related to ancient China, I can't help but wonder if Lu Bu will pop in at some point. I blame years of playing Dyansty Warriors games. Maybe some voxel version of him is lurking with the depths of the Minecraft world...

The Creation Crystals allow you to pick your own Battle Class, appearance, and catchphrases in order to build your very own Skylander in-game. Each Crystal is associated with a particular element, e.g., fire or water, so you'll be able to make a water-based Bowslinger or a light-based Sorcerer depending on the Crystal you use. In addition to these "Imaginators," there are over 30 Sensei characters that vary by Battle Class and element. If you pair up an Imaginator and a Sensei of the same Battle Class, new weapons and abilities will open up for the Imaginator allowing you to explore new areas in the game.

Picking through the available items is a bit of a mess, seeing as how Borderlands and its brothers have been repackaged and re-released multiple times over the past several years. To start, there's the Borderlands Triple Pack, which has the three base games along with expansions for the original. Then we have Borderlands GOTY Borderlands 2, which has the first two games along with the four expansions for the original. And let's not forget Borderlands 2 Game of the Year, which is the second game packaged with all nine expansions.
