PS4 DualShock 4 controller

With the September PS Plus lineup starting to wear thin, PS4 and PS3 owners are increasingly on the lookout for information about the PlayStation Plus October 2014 free games list. Sony hasn't yet revealed the full lineup of free games for PS Plus owners next month, but the company did divulge some great news for PS4 owners. The PlayStation Plus October 2014 free games list will include three games, not two, for PS4 gamers. It's unclear whether PS3 and PS Vita PS Plus subscribers will also get three free … [Read more...]

The List of Villains You Can Trap in Skylanders Trap Team

Skylanders Trap Team Chef Pepperjack

In some extended hands-on time with Skylanders Trap Team last week we played the new Kaos Doom Challenge and several full levels that left the impression that the level designs are much improved. We also left the Toys for Bob studio with a few pieces of Trap Team gold. One of which is the almost complete list of villains you can trap in Skylanders Trap Team. Trapping villains is the new mechanic in this year's Skylanders entry. Using one of the new elementally aligned traps, players can "suck" any of the 40+ bosses … [Read more...]

What’s New in the Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Box Mode?

Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Box Mode Marvel

The Disney infinity 2.0 release date is just around the corner (Sept. 23), and we've heard a lot about the toys and characters. The franchises and their associated characters are so important, in fact, that Disney has given the game a "Marvel Super Heroes" subhead even though plenty of other characters will be available. But toys and franchises aside, what's new in the Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Box Mode? After all, that's where most gamers will spend the majority of their time, no matter the toy they place on the … [Read more...]

Destiny vehicle

With a week of Destiny gameplay under our collective belt, Bungie has decided to release the first wave of six-player Destiny raids. The first of the six-player Destiny raids, The Vault of Glass, launches today and adds some new content to the game. The new six-player Destiny raids, or at least this one, does not require an additional fee. This isn't DLC. Instead, The Vault of Glass is free Raid content for players who have reached a certain point in the game. Bungies calls The Vault of Glass "the most intense and … [Read more...]

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Coming to Xbox 360, PS3

PlayStation 3 PS3

Millions of gamers around the world are looking forward to Activision's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Oddly enough, Activision itself is also looking backward, announcing that Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 this fall. Chivalry: Medieval Warfare marks the first time the series has appeared on a console. The 12-player online action game has previously been only available to PC gamers. Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a fast-paced online multiplayer game in which players turn-in their guns … [Read more...]

Hands-On with Skylanders Trap Team Kaos Doom Challenge

Skylanders Trap Team Kaos Doom Challenge

Toys for Bob created the Skylanders franchise, giving gamers and Activision's accountants millions of reasons to be thankful. Last year's outing, Swap Force, introduced a creative new way to play the game under the guidance of Vicarious Visions. This year's game, Skylanders Trap Team, includes the new ability to trap more than 40 different mini-bosses in a portable trap. But Toys for Bob had one more trick up their collective sleeve, one I got to experience for myself last week. On a visit to Toys for Bob HQ, I had … [Read more...]

PlayStation Plus September 2014 Free Game Velocity 2X Seems Most Popular

PS4

As we near the halfway mark of September, a pattern has definitely emerged with the PlayStation Plus September 2014 free game lineup for PS4. The two free games for PS Plus members, Sportsfriends and Velocity 2X, are proving quite different in popularity. In previous months, the two free games associated with the PS Plus program have been on par with one another in quality and popularity. Sony deserves credit for finding partners willing to live-up to the former, which in turn has a direct correlation to the … [Read more...]

Guardians of the Galaxy Yondu Joins Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes

Disney Infinity Yondu Guardians of the Galaxy

The toys-to-life genre has blossomed in recent years, with new game franchises surfacing in every corner. Ironically, some of the most anticipated toys for those games aren't coming from "new" franchises at all. Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes is one such example, particularly with the Guardians of the Galaxy now being added to the mix. Disney Interactive today announced that the Guardians of the Galaxy Yondu character is joining the ever-growing cast of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes toys. Yondu has been … [Read more...]

Alien: Isolation Gone Gold, Release Date Oct. 7

Alien: Isolation

The original movie Alien taught us two things. First: in space, no one can hear you scream. Second: on Earth, fans still scream with delight at the original cast reuniting. So imagine the screams of glee at hearing Alien: Isolation has gone to gold master and is preparing for its Oct. 7 release date. With Alien: Isolation gone gold, Sega's on the verge of reuniting the cast from the original space-horror film. As we previously reported, Sega recruited every member of the original cast to reprise his or her role in … [Read more...]

Destiny Characters from Beta Won’t Carry Over

Destiny screenshot

The Destiny release date is here folks. But before you get riled up to start playing with your Level 10 Guardian from the beta, here's a friendly reminder that you'll have to begin anew in the Destiny character creation process. The Destiny characters from Beta won't carry over to the retail copy you're opening today. Although Bungie announced this about one month ago, it seems people have forgotten the news or are choosing to ignore it in hopes that it was all a bad dream. It wasn't, I'm afraid. Any time you … [Read more...]
