Stikbold! Review

Stikbold Cover

It’s the classic story that everyone has heard. Girl walks by boy. Boy falls in love with girl. Devil drops in from the roof and kidnaps girl. Boy grabs best friend, Jerome, and a dodgeball. The two journey from place to place challenging various groups of strange and unique people groups to dodgeball matches, hoping to save the Girl. In retrospect, maybe this isn’t a story that everyone’ has heard. Good news then, because Stikbold! is going to tell it to you.



Disney Infinity: Marvel Battlegrounds Review

Disney Infinity Marvel Battlegrounds Level Up

Marvel Battlegrounds is a 4-play 3D Brawler set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The simplest description that I can give for the game is that it’s basically 3D Smash Bros. That is both a good and bad comparison because Battlegrounds does a few things very well even if it’s not quite to the standard of a game like Smash Bros. In fact, that is a common theme with most of the Disney Infinity offerings, solid imitations of popular games that lack the full amount of polish.


Disney Infinity 3.0 InsideOut Play Set Review


The InsideOut Play Set creates a unique story rather than borrow from the plot of the movie. You start inside of Riley’s head where things start to go haywire. Joy and Anger team up to solve the issue together. What they find is that the issue is bigger than they thought, so they join up with Sadness, Disgust, and Fear to save Riley’s mind. The InsideOut Play Set comes with Joy and Anger and a molded core memory holder as the Play Set piece. Also available are the other emotions: Sadness, Disgust, and Fear, who are sold separately.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Review

1d02b5ee-533c-4659-9a04-1b1fbaac39f1Disney Infinity was a game that came out of nowhere when it first launched in 2013. To be fair, the Toys to Life genre had already been a big hit thanks to Skylanders, but Infinity took the basic formula and added a little magic. The game played to the emotions of kids from 5 to 55 by taking the properties that are known and loved throughout the world and handing over control to the players to create our own adventures. The final product, while having good core ideas, ended up falling short of the glory it could be. In 2014 Disney stepped up their game with the release of 2.0 alongside a full line up of Marvel figures. Disney Infinity 2.0 improved almost every area of the first game while adding some great new features like Flying and Skill Trees for player progression. Still, the world was lifeless, the missions were bland, and the combat was repetitive. This brings us to the release of Disney Infinity 3.0. Once again we get a new character line up, in the form of Star Wars. There are new combat mechanics, new flight mechanics, new skill trees, and a bunch of new Toy Box features. So is the third time a charm for Disney Infinity?
