I hope Wreck-It Ralph 2 destroys Silicon Valley

While "wreck it, ralph" describes most of my sexual escapades, I think Disney's Wreck-It Ralph, which introduces its titular lead in a world alongside Bowser, Zangief, and Pac-Man, had a lot of appeal. And it wasn't just a pandering appeal ...   read

Damn, we missed out on a Disney Infinity Benedict Cumberbatch toy

Moving over to the Marvel realm, the Disney Infinity series had some awesome figures that could have eventually expanded into all of the upcoming MCU films. "Had," being the operative word here, because Disney Infinity as a series was ...   read

Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue looks so good, still has a bonkers name

I guess it's not "358/2 Days," but Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. Since you're no doubt confused, this PS4 release that's set for a worldwide December debut will feature Kingdom Hearts 3D...   read

Monkey Island creator 'not sure he'd want J.J. Abrams' to make a Monkey Island movie

[Thanks to Dtoid community member Long John for the awesome video production work!] So far, my favorite thing about Uncharted 4 is the semi-secret cameo from Monkey Island's Guybrush Threepwood. I didn't think to ask Monkey Island creator ...   read

Disney Art Academy actually looks pretty nifty

Here's a hot new Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue screenshot

Remember what I said 30 minutes ago? That whole spiel about "it's 2016, we ain't writing about screenshots, show us some dang video!" It was a lie. It was a rhetorical framing device to fill up the meat up in a post about a trailer for a ne...   read

Mobile phenomenon Crossy Road is crossing into Disney
