First Skylanders hits Japan in July, gets Wii U port

Naughty: Fire Emblem: Awakening's Tharja in figure form

Review: Skylanders Giants

Skylanders was one of the biggest surprises of 2011. Pretty much everyone expected it to be a cheap cash-in of 90s nostalgia to sell toys to unsuspecting kids -- and boy, were we wrong. It was actually a pretty fun, serviceable action game,...   read
