Skylanders fans know the fun never stops with these characters. Now there are new adventures with Skylanders Imaginators to be had! Including new features for the Switch, characters, an expansion pack, and more! This game is fun for every gamer in the house. Trust me, we fight over the controller!
Confession: I have never played Skylanders before. Shocking I know. I knew about it and have seen them everywhere but for whatever reason I never got a chance to pick up the game and try it out. A big thank you to the Skylanders team for fixing that. Clearly, I have been missing out.
The kids on the other hand, have played the game before and couldn’t wait to have it at our house. Finally Mommy!
Choose your difficulty. Beginner, Adventurer, Expert, and Nightmare (only available once you beat that annoying punk Chaos in another difficulty). Play through the story or test your racing skills. In Racing mode, race against other Skylanders fans online, test your skills in a single race, time trial, and other options are available once you have unlocked special action packs. We all like the story mode. With your main objectives and side quests it seems like there always something to do and discover on the board.
The fighting controls are easy enough to figure out and if you forget you can always double check in the upgrades menu, available right in the game. No need to exit to the main menu. My only wish is they could walk faster (adjustable on Imaginators based on accessories) and have a double jump. It took me awhile to get use to not having that double jump option!
Your starter set includes 2 Skylanders Sensei and one creation crystal. Leveling up is easy enough to do and gathering currency to buy your upgrades also isn’t difficult. Just destroy a few innocent boxes, and explore a bit to gain more. Don’t forget to stop and strike a pose at Selfie spots, they earn your rewards too!
Use the creation crystal to create your own Imaginator. This is where all those awesome set pieces, arm guards, heads, catchphrases, etc that you unlocked in the chests come into play.
Skylanders are cool but I think my Imaginator is my favorite. She is a kick tail swashbuckler who swishes around taking out bad guys and sparkling while she does it!
Your Skylanders Imaginator can have custom theme music, sound effects, and catchphrases. Love it!
Skylanders Imaginators supports character toys from all previous Skylanders games- including Skylanders®SuperChargers, Skylanders® Trap Team, Skylanders® SWAP ForceTM, Skylanders® Giants and Skylanders® Spyro’s Adventure.
Availability and more news
Skylanders Imaginators is now available for the Nintendo Switch and introduces a digital library that allows players to easily load and store their 300+ toys from the Skylanders® franchise* directly to the Switch.

New characters including Painyatta and Grave Clobber are joining the game as well as a brand-new expansion pack called the Cursed Tiki Temple. The expansion pack takes kids on an all-new adventure that features more than 100 new pieces for their Imaginators.

As we chomp at the bit waiting for Friday December 18th or as I’m calling it Star Wars Epicness Day, I have been keeping my myself occupied and spoiler free with the Disney Infinity 3.0 Rise Against The Empire Star Wars play set.
The intro alone just gets you all excited!
The set comes with Luke and Leia. Like the Twilight of the Republic, you can unlock character coins to allow others in the Star Wars universe to play within this game. As much as I enjoyed the previous Star Wars play set this is my sweet spot. This one covered Episodes 4-6 which are the ones I grew up with and loved. This is also the set I was able to play in NYC and the one I had been itching for since the announcement.
Rise Against The Empire is an amazing game. The settings, sounds, graphics, and gameplay transport you into the most exciting franchise of all time. You will become a kid again as you watch the story unfold, but this time you get to be in the action. The younger fans in your house will have a blast too, because we all know that Chewbacca, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and of course Luke are awesome. Who wouldn’t want to play them? And of course you can bring in your Rebels, Yoda, and Darth Vader too. Lord Vader might be the bad guy but he has some seriously awesome moves in Disney Infinity.
Maybe you can find out who shot first in the cantina…
The planets in the game look just like the movies, you can almost see your breath while venturing around Hoth.
Beware the AT-AT! You better take up those missions that hone your grappling in flight skills to be prepared to take down these giant walkers!
Rise Against The Empire includes several arial battles including a very famous one that involves something called a Death Star.
Try not to give into the Dark Side as you face off with Darth Vader. Channel The Force to defeat him. Or you can always adjust the difficulty level.

Thank you to Disney for sending over a galaxy of fun! All opinions expressed are my own.
I am excited to share with you the Disney Infinity 3.0 Toy Box Speedway! The Speedway is another expansion pack available for the new Disney Infinity experience. In it you get to see who is the best and fastest driver in all the Disney universe!
The game allows you to race against your favorite Disney, Disney Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars characters. Not only are all your friends here, but so are their vehicles. There are nine themed tracks to choose from: Sugar Rush, Frozen, Tatooine, San Fransokyo, Agrabah, Monsters Inc., Halloween Town, Gravity Falls, and Marvel’s Knowhere.
Practice your drifting, jumps, and stunts in the main Speedway arena. Then put your skills to the test in one of three gaming modes: Time Trial, Race, and Combat!
If you are a fan of old school racing games with way better graphics then this is the game for you. I grew up playing those games but this is way cooler for me since I can race with my favorites like Minnie and Stitch!
You can race 2 player on a split-screen, so go ahead and challenge your friends. The variety of tracks set this racing game apart from your typical kart racing games. Racing through movie worlds, looking for star coins, rail jumping, and the variety of vehicles (loving the spinning tea cup) make the Toy Box Speedway unique and a must have addition to your Disney Infinity collection.
I forgot to mention in my post about the Toy Box Takeover, when you play these expansion packs new items are opened up in your Toy Box Hub and Toy Box Store. After playing the Takeover, Merlin’s tower appeared near Cinderella’s Castle. The Speedway unlocks some rings of FIREEEEEEE ahem Rings of Fire on the Hub track.
This expansion pack is perfect for the racing enthusiast in your house, providing hours of fun in Disney Infinity 3.0!
PS: I saw lots of great deals for Disney Infinity 3.0 coming on Black Friday! Pick yours up today if you haven’t already!
Thank you Disney Infinity for sending over the Speedway to play!
Guess what? Ihave dived into the world of Minecraft! Dun Dun Dunnnnn! I am sharing the Minecraft Story Mode overview and giveaway! Yes you can win your own copy of Telltale Games newest addition- Minecraft Story Mode!
The game is broken down into Episodes. You start off by choosing how you want Jesse to look and begin making this game your story. Random note, love the pet pig! Then you go through the story, making decisions, determining how you will respond to someone, and even doing battle.
I had fun using the recipes to figure out how to make a new sword and sneaking around in a library dungeon. Being able to make my own decisions about the story is something I have always enjoyed.
This all new game is set in the world of Minecraft with new characters and familiar themes, but is an entirely original Minecraft experience inspired by the game everyone loves.
The voice cast is full of familiar faces er I mean voices like Corey Feldman, Paul Reubens, Scott Porter, and the always funny Patton Oswalt.
Now available for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, also available for download on iOS and Android. Coming soon to the download on the Wii U. The game is rated E for everyone 10 & up for fantasy violence (take that zombies) and mild language.
You can win your own PC Steam Code for Minecraft Story Mode by Telltale Games!!
