Activision has a round of layoffs, entire Minneapolis location may have closed

Following last week's investors' report, it seems as if Activision has laid off an undisclosed number of employees. These layoffs may be, in part, due to the fact that Activision says both Skylanders and Guitar Hero under-performe...

Good news, collectors: The Skylanders amiibo are going to be sold separately

[Update: It looks like the pair are going to be sold on 1/9 at GameStop -- there's no current word on what the stock looks like, but since they're being distributed by Activision, there's no doubt that it will be more plentiful than Nintend...

Skylanders SuperChargers for iOS is basically the same as consoles, and that's crazy

It's crazy how far mobile gaming has come in just a few short years. I still remember the wild west of mobile development with my iPod Touch, and how gems were plentiful enough, but mostly ancillary or retro experiences. Now, they're replic...

Activision Blizzard forms studio for TV and film

Skylanders review
Year after year, I can generally count on the Skylanders games. I had zero hope for Spyro's return back in 2011, but every single iteration has been a competent brawler. While Activision can be accused of running franchi...   read

Star Fox and Kirby were almost Skylanders

It's still weird to me that Bowser and Donkey Kong are appearing in the new Skylanders game, as part-amiibo nonetheless. Still, Nintendo has always bragged for years on end how they host the best Skylanders sales and have been very rec...

Skylanders Battlecast is a brand new game in the Skylanders franchise

Activision has announced a new Skylanders game called Battlecast, and it's a free-to-play mobile card game. I'm guessing they want to get in on that sweet Hearthstone money (which funnily enough, is part of the same wallet), as t...

Toys-to-life games have a long way to go

Between Skylanders, Disney Infinity, amiibo, and now LEGO Dimensions, I'm hearing an awful lot of talk about the "toys to life" category these days. That's fine, but nudge me when we can do this:

Activision confirms Skylanders SuperChargers, coming this year

Skylanders pioneered the recent toys-to-life market, and from there, moved on to giant figures, then to swappable toys, and eventually, to "traps." Now Activision is taking the series to vehicles with SuperChargers. Evidently maps will be ...

This year's Thanksgiving Day Parade will feature a Skylander

I don't think I've watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade since I was 10, but if gathering around the TV (or the actual event in New York City) is your thing, this year it'll feature Pikachu and Eruptor, the Skylander. While the ac...

Life in plastic, it's fantastic: Skylanders has made 2 billion dollars
