Holiday 2013

Children everywhere have already written their Holiday Wish Lists and parents everywhere are being asked to make difficult decisions. This holiday season has presented parents with a new and unique problem to solve.

Skylander’s Swap Force or Disney Infinity?

Now, parents have had to make decisions before, and have either depended on reviews to make their decision (or just gotten both). This is a problem because getting both is a significant investment (that will only grow), and the review scores for both games are close enough that there is no clear winner.

Below are some pieces of information that should help parents make their decisions. If you have further questions, or opinions, on the matter sound off in the comments!

Platforms

Skylander’s Swap Force

PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii, WiiU

3DS – The 3DS version is a different game that comes in a separate starter pack with different figures.

 

Disney Infinity

PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, WiiU (Disney Infinity came out too early in the year to have a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version.)

3DS – The 3DS version is a different game. It has no Toy Box mode. Instead it is a collection of mini-games to help level up characters.

Wii – The Wii version is the weakest of the bunch. It does not include any of the online features or multiplayer in the different playsets. The Toybox mode is also reduced in scope with smaller worlds to play in and fewer tools available. (Note: If all you own is a Wii console, then Disney Infinity is not a very good idea.)

PC/iOS – The PC and iOS versions of the game feature the Toy Box mode, but use web codes included in each figure’s packaging as opposed to the figures themselves.

 

Pricing

 

Skylander’s Swap Force

Starter Pack – $74.99

Swap Force Character – $14.99

Standard Character – $9.99

“Lightcore” Character – $12.99

Battle Packs, Triple Packs, Adventure Packs – $24.99

 

Disney Infinity

Starter Pack – $74.99

Standard Character – $12.99

3-pack of Characters – $29.99

Power Discs (blink pack) – $4.99

Playsets – Varies $29.99 – $34.99

 

Content

Both Skylander’s Swap Force and Disney Infinity have been rated E 10+ by the ESRB for their “Cartoon Violence.” It is worth noting, however, that Disney Infinity allows players to go online and play other people’s creations. Online content is NOT rated by the ESRB because it is unpredictable.

 

Business Model

 

Activision has published a new Skylander’s branded game during each of the last three years. The last two games have each come along with a new game play mechanic and a new wave of figures.

It is safe to assume at this point that this pattern will continue. This makes Skylander’s a fairly safe purchase because it is easy to predict what your future purchases will be like.

Disney Infinity, on the other hand, is an unknown element. We only have about six months worth of history to go by. We’re not completely in the dark though. We can infer some things based on Disney’s behavior in the video game space since Disney Infinity was released.

Historically, Disney would contract with a developer to release movie tie in games across every platform imaginable for its animated films. Sadly, most of them have been awful.

That appears to have changed with their most recent film Frozen. They are still releasing a licensed game, but it is an epilogue featuring one of the characters (Olaf the Snowman) and is only being released on handheld platforms. They are, however, releasing an official Frozen playset for Disney Infinity.

If this continues it would seem that Disney Infinity would be less of a stand-alone game than it is an ecosystem within which to purchase Disney/Pixar related games. If you think about it that way, the cost of the starter pack is more of an entry fee to pay the playset prices for future licensed products.

Verdict?

These two games may look similar to the outside observer, but it is almost impossible to give a final answer regarding which of these two games is “best” for your family. They are just too different.

Here are some questions to ask yourself to help decide:

  1. Does your family end up buying, and enjoying, all of the licensed Disney movie games? (If yes, then Infinity is probably a good decision.)
  2. Which of the two games do your children’s friends have? (The biggest draw for these games is the social aspect of being able to share figures and play with friends. Matching games is critical for making that work.)
  3. Are you limited to a Wii or a 3DS console? If you are, then that makes the decision for you. (The Skylanders series works just fine on the Wii and it is an actual game on the 3DS as opposed to a collection of mini-games.)

Good luck! Post your decisions in the comments! What did your family buy?

Here we go folks! You asked… and I have delivered.

I combed the web for some of the best deals in family gaming. Below is a list of deals available on Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, and the weekend beyond at several major retailers.

If you are going to be braving the stores on the busiest shopping day of the year, then this list should help you draw up your battle plans!

Walmart

PlayStation 3 12gb console – $149

Xbox 360 4gb (No kinect) – $99

Nintendo 2DS – $99

RCA Dual Core Android Tablet – $49 (1 hr in stock guarantee)

  • This tablet isn’t going to be anything to write home about. But, it will play tablet games, and watch Netflix well enough. This might not be a bad idea if your kids are asking for a tablet, but you aren’t quite sure you want to jump on the iPad mini.

Nabi 2 7” tablet – $99

LeapFrog LeapPad 2 – $54

Disney Infinity OR Skylander’s Swap Force Starter pack – 38.96

Video games priced at $10, $15, $25, $34

Board games priced 8.88 or 3.88

  • Note: Gator Golf is 3.88. That is outright robbery!

Best Buy

– Starting Thursday 6pm

Toys R Us

– Check their flyer as many deals are time sensitive

Xbox 360 E 4GB with Kinect Holiday Bundle: $199.99

  • Includes Halo 3 for Xbox 360. This isn’t a “family friendly” game by any means, but the deal with worth it even without the game. Although it doesn’t make the bundle even better for families who have older children (or parents) who enjoy video games but missed out on the Xbox 360.

WiiU Skylander’s Swap Force Bundle: $249.99

  • If you are looking to get a WiiU AND get in on the Skylander’s phenomenon then this is probably the best priced option for you.

Nintendo 3DS Luigi’s Mansion Bundle: $149.99

LeapFrog Leapster GS Explorer: $29.99

Skylander’s Giants or Skylander’s Spyro’s Adventure Starter pack (3DS): $9.99 with purchase of 3DS XL

  • Keep in mind that the Swap Force figures will not work with these older games. The figures show what game they will work near the bottom of their packaging.

R” Super Buy Video games: Buy 1 Get 1 for $1

  • There are tons of games to choose from. But, a lot of them are bargain bin games for a reason. If the game isn’t on your child’s list do yourself a favor and look it up on Metacritic.com on your smart phone while you are waiting in line and make sure it isn’t rated too horribly.
  • When in doubt: LEGO branded games and “Classic Game Collections” are a decent stand-by. They may not be “perfect,” but they aren’t as likely to be terrible as some unknown titles.

Skylander’s Giants and Skylander’s Spyro’s Adventure Figures: Buy 1 Get 1 Free

  • This is a great deal for parent’s looking to pick up older figures to help enhance their kid’s collection.
  • If you a parent who plays with your child, then I would make sure to dig through these piles to try and find a Whirlwind figure. Whirlwind is unique because it has a healing ability available once you level it up enough. This is great for helping your kids muscle their way through difficult levels.

Skylander’s Swap Force Single Character Packs: Buy 1 Get 1 70% off

All Video Games: Buy 1 Get 1 40% off

GameStop

– Starts Friday at Midnight

GameStop has NUMEROUS gaming deals. I can’t list them all (because I would just be typing out their flyer), but I will highlight the deals that I think are the best of the best for families.

PS Plus 1 Yr Membership – $29.99 (Friday only)

  • This is a great deal for people who own a PS3, a PSVita, a PS4 or any combination of those three. The free games every month are worth FAR more than the $50 that is usually charged.
  • Families with younger kids might not get to take full advantage of this deal, but families with older children or parents who play games should get a TON of value out of this purchase.

Used Products – Buy 2 Get 1 Free

  • GameStop is known for their used games, and their buy 2 get 1 promotions are a great time to pick up some great games without breaking the bank.

Pre-Owned Nintendo DS Lite – $39.99

  • The 3DS is all the rage in recent years, but the Nintendo DS is one of the best selling consoles of all time. As a result there are a lot of games available for sale. If you bought one for your child and they are looking for an inexpensive replacement (or if you are looking for one for yourself) then this is a great deal.

I’ve gotten a lot of feedback over the past week from people that don’t own consoles. PC gaming is alive and flourishing so I had no intention of leaving non console gamers out in the cold. The vast majority of major console releases are also released on PC as well, but I have listed some game ideas for families looking to find something unique.

The vast majority of these games are available on Steam.

Minecraft

It’s getting to the point now where I am convinced that the President plays Minecraft. This game is available on every non-Nintendo, non-Sony device on the market. Every where you go you will find school ages kids talking about Minecraft and what they have built.

If, somehow, you have missed out on it so far all you need to know: It is a Digital LEGO building game. Players are encouraged to explore and discover combinations of different materials as they find them. This game is everything that you make of it. Kids who love to express themselves creatively will fall in love with this game.

(Ok. You caught me. This one isn’t unique. But, it is a very good idea. Your PC gaming kids will love this one.)

Lilly Looking Through

Lilly Looking Through is an adorably animated point-and-click adventure game. It was brought to us thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign and was a beautiful experience.

It is on the short side, with only 10 different “scenes” to explore, but the storybook art-style and interesting story will keep your kids going.

Kerbal Space Program

Kerbal Space Program is an “early access” game, which means that it is regularly being updated as the developer installs more features to the game. It is *technically* not ready for a full retail release.

With that said, there is a lot to do with the game right now that children and families can enjoy. KSP is built around the idea that the player is in control of the space program for a cute race of creatures called “Kerbals.” Players are responsible for building rockets and space shuttles while they try to achieve things like orbiting the planet, landing on the moon, and colonizing other planets. The game is complex, and any number of things can go wrong (to hilarious effect).

Kids, and parents, who enjoy science and exploration will likely find a lot of value here.

Reach for the Sun

Reach for the Sun is yet another science themed game that hides a lot of learning behind some addictive game play. Players control a flower as it grows by balancing three key ingredients (starch, nutrients, and water) as they attempt to grow and reproduce before the winter chill.

 

These are some of the PC games that I have been able to find. What about all of you? What suggestions do you have? Sound off in the comments!

I haven’t gotten much hands on time with any of the next gen games. So I am providing a list of the most important launch games available for the Xbox One that is rated T or less.

Just Dance 2014

Ubisoft, the company responsible for the Just Dance franchise, looks like they will be cranking out these titles until the end of time. This is great news for fans of the dance game genre.

Just Dance is an annual release that includes updated song lists and dance routines. Anyone who enjoys dancing like a crazy person in front of their friends is in for a treat here. Just don’t be ashamed to dance in front of your kids… it’s our job to embarrass them!

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

LEGO branded games have been the surprise hit of this console generation and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes looks like it is one of the best. It is lower priced than other games on the market ($50) and is loaded with super heroes. Your child favorite is all but guaranteed to be playable. This is an excellent gift for the Marvel fan on your list!

Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14 , NBA 2K14

This year’s crop of sports titles has been released on the Xbox One as well. They all look amazing and if you are fans of the series then you know what you will be getting here.

These are great options for sports fans if they a. own the Xbox One and b. didn’t buy these games when they released for the Xbox 360 or PS3 already.

Forza Motorsport 5 Day One Edition

There are a lot of racing games coming to market soon. Forza Motorsports is getting a lot of press right now (and rightfully so) because it is beautiful. But, we have to remember that the Forza series is a racing simulation.

If your kids are expecting to be able to race around tracks like they do in Mario Kart they will be VERY disappointed. Forza isn’t impossible, but they are trying to simulate a real driving experience. There are some “assists” that can be turned on to help smooth out the experience for less experienced drivers though so your mileage may vary (pun intended).

Peggle 2

Note: Peggle 2 isn’t out yet, but will be available on Xbox One before Christmas.

Peggle has been one of the most popular games on the web for a very, very long time. You can give the previous game a try on PopCap’s website. I would take advantage of the chance to try it out before you send your money on this one.

I haven’t gotten much hands on time with any of the next gen games. So I am providing a list of the most important launch games available for the PS4 that are rated T or less.

Resogun

Resogun is among the best games available for the system according to several members of the IGN staff. It is also free for PS+ members this month, so if you bought a PS4 it is worth a download because of the pricetag alone (free)!

Knack

Knack is the next generation platforming game. It looks stunning, but it has not gotten consistent reviews. If you have purchased a PS4 and are desperate for family friendly content, then this isn’t a terrible choice.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

LEGO branded games have been the surprise hit of this console generation and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes looks like it is one of the best. This game is stacked with super heroes. Your child’s favorite is all but guaranteed to be playable. This is an excellent gift for the Marvel fan on your list!

 

Madden NFL 25 Madden NFL 25 , FIFA 14, NBA 2K14

This year’s crop of sports titles has been released on the PS4 as well. They all look amazing and if you are fans of the series then you know what you will be getting here.

These are great options for sports fans if they a. own the PS4 and b. didn’t buy these games when they released for the Xbox 360 or PS3 already.

The Xbox One is on the top of a lot of kids’ Christmas list this year. But, the newest and shiniest Xbox on the block doesn’t need to be the only game in town. The Xbox 360 has a very strong lineup of games and it will be available at very reasonable prices now. The following is a list of Xbox 360 games that are worth a look this holiday season.

Minecraft

It’s getting to the point now where I am convinced that the President plays Minecraft. This game is available on every non-Nintendo, non-Sony device on the market. Every where you go you will find school ages kids talking about Minecraft and what they have built.

If, somehow, you have missed out on it so far all you need to know: It is a Digital LEGO building game. Players are encouraged to explore and discover combinations of different materials as they find them. This game is everything that you make of it. Kids who love to express themselves creatively will fall in love with this game.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

LEGO branded games have been the surprise hit of this console generation and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes looks like it is one of the best. It is lower priced than other games on the market ($50) and is loaded with super heroes. Your child favorite is all but guaranteed to be playable. This is an excellent gift for the Marvel fan on your list!

Rayman Legends

Rayman is a game mascot that was left forgotten by gamers for years until he was resurrected by Ubisoft with the surprise hit Rayman Origins.

Rayman Legends improves on virtually every aspect of its predecessor. The hand drawn art and animations are a joy to look at and the use of licensed music makes this game a treat.

It is on the challenging side, so you should make sure you know your child’s skill level before you buy it. But, this is an excellent gift for children who love platforming games.

Just Dance 2014 (Requires Kinect)

Ubisoft, the company responsible for the Just Dance franchise, looks like they will be cranking out these titles until the end of time. This is great news for fans of the dance game genre.

Just Dance is an annual release that includes updated song lists and dance routines. Anyone who enjoys dancing like a crazy person in front of their friends is in for a treat here. Just don’t be ashamed to dance in front of your kids… it’s our job to embarrass them!

DuckTales – Remastered

Ducktales for the NES is considered one of the best platform games ever made. It was incredibly challenging, but it was one of the first games to allow players to tackle challenges in any order.

Anyone with fond memories of the cartoon will want to take a look here. The developers managed to secure the entire original cast of the series so it will be nonstop nostalgia the whole way through!

PlayStation 3

This holiday season is going to be overshadowed by the release of the next generation of consoles (the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One), but this is a great time to jump on board with the PS3. The console itself is less costly now than it ever was and there are seven years worth of games to choose from (many of them at a deep discount). Most of the new games being released in the next few years will also be released on the PS3. If your family is looking for a console, but isn’t looking to be on the “cutting edge” of technology, then this is a great choice.

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus

Ratchet and Clank has been in almost a dozen games at this point and the formula never seems to get old. They run around beautifully crafted levels and take on countless aliens using bizarre and over the top weapons. My personal favorite is the Winterizer, a weapon that turns enemies into snowmen.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

Sly Cooper: Thieves in time was largely drowned in the wave of games that came out this spring, but this is a game that families should not miss. The animation is beautiful, the characters are interesting, and the game is challenging enough to keep everyone interested without becoming too frustrated.

Honorable mention should be given to the Sly Cooper Collection which can be purchased for a song.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

LEGO branded games have been the surprise hit of this console generation and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes looks like it is one of the best. It is lower priced than other games on the market ($50) and is loaded with super heroes. Your child favorite is all but guaranteed to be playable. This is an excellent gift for the Marvel fan on your list!

Rayman Legends

Rayman is a game mascot that was left forgotten by gamers for years until he was resurrected by Ubisoft with the surprise hit Rayman Origins.

Rayman Legends improves on virtually every aspect of its predecessor. The hand drawn art and animations are a joy to look at and the use of licensed music makes this game a treat.

It is on the challenging side, so you should make sure you know your child’s skill level before you buy it. But, this is an excellent gift.for children who love platforming games.

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

This was another game that ended up being overshadowed by other releases this past Spring. Lara, one of our staff writers, reviewed the game for us at its launch.

It is a charming game, and the best part about it is the price. It was elevated to “Greatest Hits” status and sports a $19.99 price tag!

Castle of Illusion: starring Mickey Mouse

The title might sound familiar to anyone who played a lot of Sega Genesis games back in the day. This is a spiritual remake of the Genesis title that takes all of the themes from the original game and gives them a more modern look.

The animation is gorgeous. Mickey Mouse is among the most well loved characters ever. The price is low. I recommend grabbing this download only title right away.

DuckTales – Remastered

Ducktales for the NES is considered one of the best platform games ever made. It was incredibly challenging, but it was one of the first games to allow players to tackle challenges in any order.

Anyone with fond memories of the cartoon will want to take a look here. The developers managed to secure the entire original cast of the series so it will be nonstop nostalgia the whole way through!

By: Stephen Duetzmann, editor in chief

The 3DS tripped out of the gate thanks to a poor launch lineup, but those days are long gone. The 3DS XL is easily one of the most popular pieces of technology in our house and there is a near endless supply of games. This is a great purchase. This is especially true if you take frequent car trips.

The 2DS launched this fall and is a less costly option meant for younger kids (I think I want one for myself though!) This is a great way for people who just want to experience some of the games the 3DS family has to offer without paying a higher up front price.

Also, keep in mind that the 3DS  and the 2DS are also backwards compatible with DS games. There are hundreds of games that can be purchased on the cheap that are just as entertaining as the more modern games. Make sure to check those out too!

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

This is a big year for Zelda games. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is as close to a true sequel that Nintendo will ever have in the franchise. Its predecessor, A Link to the Past, is one of the most loved games in Nintendo’s history and A Link Between Worlds looks like it improves on every aspect.

If you remember trying to rescue Zelda when you were a kid and long for the chance to introduce your own kids to the series this is an amazing start.

Pokémon X/Pokémon Y – E

Pokemon has been so big for so long that it is never going away. (No matter how much you might want it to!) Pokemon X and Pokemon Y are the first Pokemon games to be developed with the 3DS in mind. The most important

Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon – E

Luigi’s Mansion was a surprise hit on the GameCube. It took a long time for the follow-up, but this is a great game for fans of the original game.

Players control Luigi as he searches a haunted mansion and traps ghosts in his special vacuum. Each room is a puzzle where you have to figure out how to get the ghosts to appear so you can capture them. Don’t let the “ghosts” fool you though, this game is spooky like an episode of Scooby Doo.

Super Mario 3D Land – E

I have yet to play a 3D Super Mario game that I didn’t like. Super Mario 3D Land is no exception. I’ll make this one fast… if you and your family like Super Mario Brothers games, then this is a must buy.

Mario Kart 7 – E

Mario Kart games have continuously reinvented the cart racing genre and with Mario Kart 8 on the horizon for the WiiU this is all but required for Nintendo fans. The addition of both underwater zones and a hang glider add new dimensions to the gameplay. This is a great gift if your family loves Mario, but it looking for something different.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 – E

New Super Mario Brothers 2 is another excellent addition to the Super Mario catalog. This time the game is built around of finding coins… lots of coins.

Sonic Lost World – E 10+

Sonic Lost World is a great way to introduce your children to one of the most recognizable game mascots of the past. A lot of his recent games have been terrible, but this entry is an excellent experience filled with all the high speed platforming that was a mainstay of the franchise in it’s early years.

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy – E 10+

This may just be personal bias showing, but I can’t help it. This game may not be for every family, but if you and your children have enjoyed any of the Final Fantasy games together, then this is a great way to relive some of those moments. (It doesn’t hurt that it is a bit older and can be yours for less than $20.)
