Skylanders. That is what is happening blog-world. Pretty much the coolest game I have come across in a long time (multi-player wise). Yes, I know what age it is recommended for. But I’m all about rebelling when it comes to Video Games – common sense says I shouldn’t be playing them at all.
Besides, this is screaming for everyone to play it. Cute figures to collect, you can take your characters to other systems – meaning yes, your friends house too- and they will save the XP/Items you find. It’s. so. cool. This is the kind of game I have been imaging for years, exactly what I wanted years ago, and heck I am going to enjoy it now!
The one thing that I have made very clear is this: I love Bash the Dragon, you better not freakin’ touch my dragon. He’s awesome. He rolls around on the ground and gets up in everybody’s business. I just love him.
I even drew this picture so everyone knows which Dragon I am speaking of. See, he’s awesome. He swings his spike tail, he just takes care of business.
Little did I know how fast this game would suck me into it. Currently I am planning my next Skylander purchase (I’m thinking Wreckingball? But I have a magic one, maybe something else..) and really considering purchasing the 3DS version. There is an exclusive character in that pack. Exclusive.
(Who am I kidding – truth be told I am going to get it tomorrow if all goes to plan. Please be in stock, please be in stock.)
What is totally awesome about the Portal idea is how easy it is to switch characters. Don’t feel like playing Spyro? Switch it up on the spot – even mid-battle should you really hate him that much – and place a new Skylander on the portal. BOOM. Magic. You are ready to rock n’ roll.
This may be most fun I have gotten out of a figurine to date. Like, even more then the cute little pokemon ones I use to play house with. There is even an online website where you can decorate a whole island and play some re-carnation of Angry birds a la Skylanders style.
Brilliant. So. Freaking. Brilliant.
Activision – should you ever read this – Please release more expansions and keep this awesomeness going. I am hooked now and I do not want to let go. Let’s keep the cool vibes going with Skylanders.
(PS. Please make the Portal Backwards compatible with new systems – heck let’s keep the characters going from system to system as well.)
