Impressions: Disney Infinity Frozen Toy Box Set

I'd love to see more of these

As you may have noticed, Disney Infinity has been slowly rolling out some add-on options for the core game, and not all of them are created equal. Some involve a full-on story mode unique to a Disney IP, some are character packs, and others are just singular characters.

Although the IPs presented in said add-ons tend to skew towards contemporary films, the Frozen Toy Box Pack is a decent compromise for those of you who want more than just a simple character pack.

Disney Infinity: Frozen Toy Box Pack (3DS, PC, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360 [tested])
Developer: Avalanche Software
Publisher: Disney Interactive
Released: November 26, 2013
MSRP: $34.99 (Two characters, no Play Set)

Anna, the star of Frozen, is one of the two characters included in the set, and although she isn't one of my favorite characters in the game she's interesting enough to warrant the occasional switch. She uses her shovel as her base attack and a grappling hook to get around -- the latter of which basically functions as a hookshot for traversing gaps, Tenchu style. She also sports a neat ninja flip, although her regular attacks are very slow and awkward, so you'll most likely want to use a Toy Box item to take on enemies.

Elsa the Snow Queen is the highlight of the pack, as she sports a much more interesting design as well as some badass magical attacks. Her ice beams are almost Final Fantasy in nature, as she has both AOE snow flurries and individual icicles that can be aimed from afar, which makes her useful for almost any situation -- not to mention they can also freeze enemies. She doesn't have any real maneuverability advantages, but she also has the ninja flip, and she can double jump. Unlike Anna, I use her regularly now in Toy Box.



The best thing about this set however is the fact that it comes with two themed Power Discs that are exclusive to the Frozen pack. They allow you to customize both the background and the entire theme of the set, morphing your creations into a winter wonderland. The discs are easily two of the best themes and backgrounds in the game, and drastically alter the overall look of the Box. I love this concept of a Toy Box set, because it doesn't feel like a wasted opportunity like some other releases.

For instance, if the developers released a "Nightmare Before Christmas" Disc with Jack Skellington (it's sold separately), he would have been a much more compelling purchase. The inclusion of the discs here is a great compromise, and one I'd like to see more of going forward. Since Frozen functions as both a co-op set and a full-on theme, I can heartily recommend it for any fan of Disney Infinity.

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!

MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches. Be prepared! Get it on PS4.

Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!

Forgot to mention that I celebrated completing Persona 4: Golden by binging on a bunch of totally in-canon doujins. Including, but not limited to, Yu on genderswap't Yosuke. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Ex0MgjW.jpg[/img]

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.
