Skylanders Magic Likely to Bring in a Second Year of Giant Sales (Preview) | RipTen

Michael Futter writes: The first time I ever saw a press release about Skylanders, I chuckled to myself. “Nice try, Activision,” I said. “You’re going to bury those in between the desert pits currently home to Atari‘s E.T. cartridges and THQ‘s uDraw tablet.” It wasn’t until I had the chance to talk to someone from Activision completely by accident at Call of Duty XP last year that I started to change my mind. (PS3, Skylanders Giants, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I'm waiting for Toys for Bob to announce that the next Skylanders is secretly the next Star Control.

We actually talked a little bit about Star Control while we were there. I think fans would be quite happy to see a new one.

are grown men actually playing this game? I thought it was a kid game

Then you would be mistaken. It's a great action RPG, and with the new difficulty settings, I suspect even more adults will be enjoying it.

I weep for you Spyro, I truly do.

Activision have turned a once great franchise into a bloated, pustulant, cash cow.

The only humane thing to do is put the thing out of it's misery, but I doubt Dignitas accept fictional dragons as patients.

Have you played Skylanders? Because it's a pretty fantastic game.

Awesome insight into the game. I may actually have to shell out the cash for those figures after missing the first one. Looks great.

I have friends who are big into Skylanders and I've always wanted to give it a try, so I think I'll start with Giants.
