Crash Bandicoot is getting the Funko Pop! treatment

Does everything have a Funko Pop! now? Will everything eventually be a Funko Pop!? Am I a Funko Pop!? What is life? I have to admit I've fallen victim to the Funko craze, but mostly only when it comes to Star Wars. These, though... I might ...

Looks like the Crash N. Sane Trilogy really is harder

Over the weekend, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy launched to wild success and some odd comparisons to FromSoftware's masterpiece. While most everyone is pleased with the remaster, some people have been claiming that Crash is super diff...

Review: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Crash always marched to the beat of a different drum -- but unlike Bubsy, his drum wasn't loaded with explosives, Keith Moon style. He rose above the drove of mascot platformers and literally clawed his way up to stardom. For a bit. Now Cra...

Destiny 2 looks pretty darn cinematic compared to the first

Destiny 2 is releasing two days earlier than previously announced, on September 6 rather than September 8 for consoles. PC gets it on October 24. I never got around to playing the first Destiny, despite initial hype due to Bungie's great g...

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy out in June

Vicarious Visions' remaster of the first three Crash Bandicoot games has been something I've been looking for to for a minute now. Including the first three Crash titles (Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Ba...

Destiny's development team just got a little bigger

It takes a lot to make a stew. Bungie, the main developer behind Destiny, hasn't been the only developer behind Destiny for a while now. Last year, High Moon Studios (the team who made Transformers) joined the effort. Now, a third...

Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy gets a name, gameplay

That remake of the first three Crash Bandicoot games (Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped) has a name, Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy, and it looks pretty neat. I've been ...

Impressions: Skylanders: Swap Force (Xbox One and PS4)

Skylanders: Swap Force was one of my biggest surprises of the year. After two full iterations in such a short amount of time, I didn't think Vicarious Visions had it in them to make the strongest one yet. But here we are, and it seems as if...

New releases: Skylanders, Goodbye Deponia, and more

A relatively tame week of releases, with the star being Skylanders: Swap Force. This series just prints money, especially now that you can split and merge toys to create new warriors. How cool is that? The other biggies this week include G...

Review: Skylanders: Swap Force

Skylanders has had a bit of an odd history. Initially, it launched under the auspices of the Spyro name, and made a very small splash in the market -- so small, that barely anyone knew what it was. Fast forward to six months later, and it w...

There really needs to be a Skylanders cartoon already

The entire Skylanders series appeals to me in a lot of ways, most of all how it reminds me of cartoons I used to watch as a kid. This latest trailer for SWAP Force really shows off what I mean by that, and really makes me wish Activision w...

Let's take a look at the non-swappable new Skylanders

Okay first of all the creature in the header here looks like something from a nightmare. Just, so creepy. Well whatever it is, it's one of four new Skylanders playable in SWAP Force. Two of them are also just normal Skylanders in that you c...

Activision will be at gamescom and are planning to wave their giant wads of money around as they will have the biggest ever demo-theater ever built in gamescom history for Destiny. It comes in at 72ft in length, 43ft wide, and is the heigh...

Skylanders Swap Force is surprisingly more fun than evil

Activision’s Skylanders franchise has always smelled of a money grab to me. Copperish, like the smell of old pennies scrounged up by hard-working parents so little Linda Anne can have all the newest and coolest Skylanders characters w...

Here's what Skylanders: Swap Force looks like in action

The next Skylanders game was revealed early in the morning today and it's going to let you swap different toy parts to make new heroes. Yes, you get to break the toys in half, but on purpose! Skylanders: Swap Force has a pretty cool gimmic...

Review: Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

Growing up in the nineties, I gained a certain affinity for contrived plastic gimmicks designed to be collected by compulsive children. The likes of Mini Boglins, Monster in My Pocket, and GoGo's Crazy Bones made up a huge part of my childh...
