The LEGO Movie Videogame comes out in Feb 2014 on all current and next generation platforms to coincide with the animated film. Will Arnett will join the voice-cast as Batman – lending his brand of humor to the character. Arnett also voiced Mr. Perkins in the animated feature Despicable Me in 2010 and will play Vernon Fenwick in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Both the movie and videogame look like tons of fun and hopefully help mix up the LEGO videogaming experience a bit which has seen its highs and lows over the last decade.
Disney Infinity released another wave of figures just before Thanksgiving leading into the holiday season for shopping and gift giving. The new batch of figures are Ralph and Vanellope from the film Wreck-It Ralph, Anna and Elsa (2 pack) from the film Frozen and Rapunzel from the film Tangled. The Frozen 2-pack coincided with the release of the film and also includes two Infinity Discs to change the landscape in Toy Box mode. Out of the newest batch of figures our favorite has to go to Vanellope who not only is the best and most detailed toy of the bunch
We enjoyed Frozen — tons of fun and stunning visuals! Kristen Bell did an outstanding job dramatically as Anna but it was Olaf (played by Josh Gad) the snowman who stole the show for comedy relief. Frozen in 3D works well because snow and ice just automatically lends itself to this effect. The movie was heavy on songs and sometimes felt a bit more ‘theatrical’ then it needed to be — sort of like an animated opera.
We had a chance to crack open the Call Of Duty Ghosts Prestige Edition for the Xbox One this week which retails for $199.99. The quality of production is stunning and will make a fine addition to your other Call Of Duty collectibles – this is for extreme fans of the Call Of Duty franchise as the bundle isn’t cheap. Probably the biggest highlight is the 1080 HD Tactical Camera – we’ll include all the details below! 1080p HD Tactical Camera: Film, edit, and share custom made videos with a mountable 1080p HD Tactical Camera, modeled from actual in-game equipment.
GameStop sent out an email earlier today announcing they’ll be carrying a new Skylanders Swap Force figure available for sale Dec 7, 2013. The image was purposely blurred out but clever Skylanders collectors can easily tell that the figure will be the as-yet-released Skylanders Jolly Bumble Blast variant. No information yet on if this figure can be pre-ordered or purchased online or not.
Residents of Los Angeles are quite spoiled with comic conventions throughout the year with Comikaze, Wondercon and the Long Beach Comic Con. Out of those three the Long Beach Comic Con has the longest history to it and has featured a variety of celebrity talent and guests over the years. Nothing can quite top the level of excitement and attendees as the ‘big one’ – San Diego Comic-Con International but these smaller shows pose a charm unto themselves. For this year’s Long Beach Comic Con things seemed a bit more ‘exciting’ — we couldn’t quite put our finger on it
Talk show host Conan O’Brien has been making a name for himself in the video game industry with his ‘Clueless Gamer‘ segment in which he plays and reviews games in a casual and comical style. Conan made an appearance at Blizzcon 2013 to film coverage and segments – mostly talking and trying out the popular MMO World Of Warcraft. Conan’s brand of humor and style is unique in that it fits right into the ‘gaming attitude’ as well as the main- stream public – you get a sense that even though Conan is ‘playing’ the confused-oblivious guy that he’s quite
If you are familiar with COIN-OP TV then you probably already know we’re big fans of the Skylanders franchise. What Skylanders offers to kids and gamers is a unique experience in collecting toys that are cleverly incorporated into a fantastically fun video game experience. Both Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure and its sequel Skylanders Giants were excellent entrees into the franchise but Skylanders Swap Force takes things to the next level by upping the graphics and expanding upon the storyline and characters. Skylanders Swap Force was developed by Vicarious Visions who was previously handling the Nintendo 3DS and iOS versions of Skylanders
Rekoil is an upcoming first person multiplayer shooter coming to PC and XBLA in the near future developed by Jason Brice and his team. We had a chance to sit down with the game in a private demo – while still a work-in-progress we were able to get a sense of where Rekoil is heading. Rekoil will feature both male and female characters and will release with 10 maps – we played some of the Sawmill map and Prison map. The developers stressed that player balance at any level from the beginning is their primary concern for this game. Each
