The Skylanders Trap Team Xbox One Starter Pack includes the new Traptanium Portal … [Read more...]

Major problems that have plagued the franchise for years finally see their end as the game makes a major move toward realism. Animations Animations have been a growing part of the FIFA series.

Skylanders Trap Team screen

My kids and I have adored the Skylanders franchise since it first launched, as have millions of other families.

After all, Skylanders Trap Team, like all of the games in the series, is fun for parents but will really take off or flop based on the kids' experience. As a parent, I look for a … [Read more...]

For the past year of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One's commercial existence, die-hard fans of both consoles have engaged in an endless, tireless and frankly meaningless argument about everything related to "PS4 vs. Xbox One." The latest volley says Microsoft's Xbox One is a lost cause. That's an asinine argument. Sony's in trouble, not Microsoft. It's a fool's errand to say Sony doesn't have the upper hand at this point in time. The company has … [Read more...]
