Pokemon battles are nothing new. We’ve been seeing these cute little monsters battle it out for decades now. With that said, these battles have always been very abstracted. I have a difficult time imagining a pair of trained beasts patiently taking turns while they lay into each other with fireballs and water blasts. Instead, I have always imagined the battles to more like MMA bouts where both combatants fight at once; wildly slashing, bashing, and blasting at each other.

My vision was finally realized when Pokken Tournament was announced last year. I was super excited then, and that carried right through until the release of the game. I have been hungry to get in and battle it out for a long time and I can say that I was not disappointed.

First, it is important to note that Pokken Tournament was developed by some of the same people responsible for the long running Tekken series. As a result the fighting mechanics are rock solid. The buttons are responsive and the action is furious. I never felt like I was behaving randomly even when I was learning the game. This is a big deal because the Pokemon brand will certainly attract a younger audience and it is important that the game be accessible right from the outset.

At its core Pokken Tournament is fighting game just like the others that are on the market right now. The biggest thing that sets it apart from the competition is its use of different “phases.” During each match players compete for position in both a Field Phase, where they can freely roam the battlefield, and a Duel Phase, where players fight in close quarters on a 2D plane. Each match is a dance as players weave in and out of the two phases based on their preferences. Some players may prefer to “zone” out their opponents using ranged attacks while others will try to close in on their opponents to unleash devastating combos. This adds an additional layer of strategy without bogging players down with additional button presses.

The roster includes sixteen Pokemon of various elements and from different games in the primary series. Everyone who plays should be able to quickly find a character that they like. And, honestly, if they can’t decide… then they should just use Lucha Libre Pikachu. Trust me.

Family Gaming Assessment

Pokken Tournament joins Super Smash Bros for Wii U as a family friendly option for fans of the fighting game genre. It does involve one on one combat between two Pokemon, but they are all obviously cartoonish characters. If you would let your child watch an episode of Pokemon, then the basic gameplay will not be a problem.

The game does, however, involve online matches where other player’s screen names are visible. Nintendo is generally very good at keeping the really bad stuff from being visible, but it is still worth being vigilant.

Playability Review

Fighting games aren’t exactly known for being “simple.” Pokken Tournament is no different. Players will need to have to be coordinated enough to use just about every button on the controller. In order to be successful they will need to be able to enter complex strings of button presses. This isn’t to say that you can’t just button-mash your way to a good time, but success depends largely on your ability to string together combos.


Pokken Tournament is an excellent game. Pokemon fans and fighting game fans alike should check this one out.

Skylanders SuperChargers was already one of the most anticipated games of the year for a lot of the kids out there. Nintendo went and kicked everything up a notch by announced two Nintendo characters that will be playable exclusively on the Nintendo versions of this years Skylanders game.

Turbo Charge Donkey Kong and Hammer Slam Bowser will be playable this year and they look AMAZING.

Skylanders Bowser

Yeah… this guy looks intense. 

Skylanders Donkey Kong

Who’d have thought we’d ever see THIS!

These guest stars will function just like any other SuperCharger character. Donkey Kong and Bowser will each be able to drive all of the other vehicles in the game, but both of them have their own special vehicle as well: The Barrel Blaster and theClown Cruiser


These aren’t just half-hearted characters either. These are full on additions to the Skylanders roster with beautiful characters models, intense animations, and unique skill trees to upgrade them.

As an added bonus, the two figures will have special rotatable bases that can be used to switch them to amiibo mode for use with certain Nintendo products. This presents an added value for Nintendo Wii U owners.

You’ll be able to pick these characters up as part of exclusive SuperChargers bundles for the Wii U, Wii, and 3DS.

Activision and Toys for Bob are bringing yet another innovation to the hit kids franchise Skylanders with the launch of Skylanders SuperChargers on September 20, 2015. Skylanders has been bringing toys to life for years, but this year’s entry to the franchise will feature an all new “vehicles-to-life” feature that will let our kids pilot awesome vehicles using their favorite Skylanders characters!

“At the helm of powerful, tricked-out land, sea and sky vehicles, Portal Masters can engage in a high-octane action-adventure videogame like never before. Kids can speed across Skylands’ roads in vehicular combat, race down roaring rapids and engage in aerial dogfights as they barrel-roll through enemy swarms for the first time.”

Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc said, “We love making these games because in order to do it well, you have to constantly tap into your inner kid.” Who doesn’t know a kid who has dreamt of battling evil in an awesome care or plane? “Skylanders SuperChargers makes those dreams real.”

There have been more than 300 Skylanders released over the last five years. Each new game has come with a whole new pile of plastic toys for parents to search through. The newest iteration lightens the load by having a line of only twenty new SuperChargers character toys and twenty new vehicle toys.

All of the different Supercharger vehicles will be customizable in-game. Players can ever pair each vehicle with their designated SuperCharger Skylander to create a “SuperCharged combination.” This opens increases the power of BOTH the hero and the vehicle. (Get ready to shop for pairs parents!) Even better? The vehicles are not only going to be playable in the game, but many of them also feature moving parts, making them fun to play with outside of the game.

Skylanders SuperChargers, like the previous games in the series, continues to support all of the Skylanders toys from previous games, enabling all of your children’s favorite Skylanders characters to pilot land, sea or sky-based vehicles.

We reported on Yooka-Laylee last month. We knew that it would be a 3D platformer that would be developed by Playtonic Games, a company comprised entirely of Ex-Rare developers. We didn’t know much else at the time, but that it all over now and the Kickstarter has not only launched, but it was the fastest video game Kickstarter to reach $1 million in the history of the crowd funding site. (That is a very big deal!)

The main characters in the Yooka-Laylee are an iguana named Yooka, and a friendly bat named Laylee. The two of them will work together to explore 3d environments, avoid enemies, and find hidden items and collectibles. The exact size and scope of the game was originally left to be determined by the success of the Kickstarter, but since the campaign has raised over $2 million dollars and still has 33 days to go we can assume that it will be pretty impressive. Just take a look at the stretch goals that have already been unlocked!


Yooka Laylee Stretch Goals

The success of this Kickstarter is especially interesting when you consider that many people left the 3d platforming genre for dead as there hasn’t been a real entry for years. It stands to reason, however, that the massive success here will show publishers that there are hungry fans waiting to play these games. Lets hope that the surge of 3d platformers in the coming years ends up resulting in some more good games!

Playtonic Games, an “indie” developer comprised of developers responsible for gaming classics like Donkey Kong Country, recently announced that they would be developing a spiritual successor to their smash hit Banjo-Kazooie. The Kickstarter for the new game doesn’t launch until tomorrow (May 1), but the first details have be released today. Specifically, we finally know that the name of the game is Yooka-Laylee!

The main characters in the game are a lizard named Yooka, and a friendly bat named Laylee. The two of them will work together to explore 3d environments, avoid enemies, and find hidden items and collectibles.

Yooka Laylee

Yooka and Laylee will be a great team!

We’ll find out more details tomorrow when the Kickstarter launches, but based on the image they have shared to the public so far we can tell this game is going to be adorable!

Check back here at Engaged Family Gaming for more updates as the Kickstarter goes live!

Skylanders was responsible for the birth of the toys to life genre. Kids everywhere asked their parents, Santa, or anyone else who might listen to help them get in on the action. There were six games in the series  and dozens of figures.

It can be VERY difficult to tell them apart. This is especially true now that the figures are no longer sold in stores. The only way to find the characters now is to search at rummage sales, on Ebay, or on the Facebook marketplace.

Fear not! We have a quick and easy guide to figuring out how to tell all of those Skylanders apart and to figure out what games in the franchise you can use them in.

If the figures are in their original packaging for some reason, then your job is easy. You can read the box and find out what game it goes with. You can use that figure with all of the Skylander’s games released afterwards.

The Skylanders release timeline is as follows:

  • Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure (2011)
  • Skylanders Giants (2012)
  • Skylanders SWAP Force (2013)
  • Skylanders Trap Team (2014)
  • Skylanders SuperChargers (2015)
  • Skylanders Imaginators (2016)

Unfortunately, most of the Skylanders you find today will be loose. So you’ll need to find another method to identify them.

The good news is that all you have to do is turn the figure over and look at the either the color of the translucent base or its shape! That detail will give you everything you need to know to figure out where it came from.

Here is a handy chart to help you figure out which games a given figure can be used in:

Elemental Type

Another key characteristic of different Skylanders is their elemental type.  You can find that by looking at the symbol on their base.

The different elemental types are:

Special Skylanders – Giants

Skylanders Giants featured a new kind of figure that was between two and three times the size of regular figures. These characters are used in the game to do things you would expect giants to do like pull floating islands on giant chains and break down walls.

Special Skylanders – Swap Force

Skylanders: Swap Force brings in larger characters that disconnect with magnets at the waist. Their legs each have powers that help unlock new areas. The different movement powers associated with the different members of the Swap Force are listed below:


Special Skylanders – Trap Team

Skylanders Trap Team features special characters are also larger than the common Skylanders and have a translucent weapon or headwear.

The Skylanders line for Trap Team included:

  • 18 Trap Masters
  • 18 New Core Skylanders (Series 1)
  • 5 Returning Skylanders (Series 2-4)
  • 16 Minis

One of the other key components to Skylanders Trap Team is the ability to trap boss characters and use them as characters in the game. There are traps for each element including a trap to help capture Kaos (the final boss) himself!

Special Skylanders – Superchargers

Skylanders Superchargers introduced vehicles for the first time. There are three types: Air, Sea, and Land. There are twenty vehicles and twenty Skylanders available in the line for Superchargers.

It is worth mentioning that you only need a land Supercharger to complete the game, but it is a good idea to pick up and Air and Sea vehicle so that you don’t miss any content.

Traps from Trap Team work with the Superchargers game, but you can’t play as the characters. Instead they provide powerful elemental ammunition for Supercharger vehicles.

Activision also worked with Nintendo to create a pair of Skylander characters that are ALSO amiibo. All you need to do to switch between the two is to rotate the base. The Skylander/amiibo characters are Donkey Kong and Bowser. They even come with their own vehicles (Donkey Kong has a barrel themed racer and Bowser has a plane.)

Special Skylanders – Imaginators

Skylanders Imaginators is the last game in the series. The gimmick for this game is that instead of a large line of new Skylanders figures they released creation crystals for each element. You then use those creation crystals in the game to create custom Skylanders using one of 10 different battle classes. You then customize them with items that you can either find in the game or purchase separately in blind packs.

There are also 31 Sensei figures to purchase. Each of them provides a new power move for your custom Imaginators character depending on their class.

The 10 different battle classes are:

  • Bazooker
  • Bowslinger
  • Brawler
  • Knight
  • Ninja
  • Quickshot
  • Sentinel
  • Smasher
  • Sorcerer
  • Swashbuckler

Hopefully, this guide will help you to understand what Skylanders you are getting!

I had the opportunity at PAX East to play a whole lot of different games. Many of them were interesting. A few of them were great. But, only one of them was truly revolutionary: Runbow.

Runbow, by 13am Games,  caught my attention for two main reasons.

  1. The art style is awesome. The entirety of the game is brilliantly colorful and is, in fact, built around the different colors and the way they interact with each other. All of the characters look as though they were ripped right off of a poster from the 60s or 70s.
  2. Runbow is a nine player game. Yes. I just said that. It is a nine player competitive game. The developers made this happen using the Wii U gamepad alongside four wii-motes with attached nunchucks or Wii Pro controllers.

My demo was relatively short, but I havenʼt played anything so interesting in years. There are a variety of game modes, but each of them were built around short bursts of platforming. The key is that the majority of the platforms are colored blue, green, cyan, and so forth. The background is constantly changing and if it happens to change to the same color as a platform it will essentially disappear. This makes each round very chaotic as all of the players not only race to the end, but they fight to survive.

Runbow Character Art

The Runbow character art is fantastic!

I also got a chance to play a “Color Master” mode where one player uses the gamepad and competes against all of the other players to prevent them from finishing the race. The only way to score points as the color master is to prevent everyone from finishing the race. I played as the color master and enjoyed a whole host of tools through my demo. I could drop bombs. I could create my own character to run and attack players. I could even paint different colors on the background to make platforms disappear.

The whole experience was a lot of fun and I was playing with complete strangers! I immediately imagined the insanity of my entire family and some of our friends playing this game. The younger players might struggle with some of the platforming, but each level is so chaotic that just running through them would be fun enough to keep it all going.

I cannot wait for this game to come out. Keep your eyes on Engaged Family Gaming as the year passes for more in depth information.

Holiday shopping is getting more and more difficult every year. Parents used to have to worry about “the hot toy,” but now there are so many video games released each year that it can be very confusing for parents.

The following is a list of some of our recommendations for parents who need a little bit of help to make sure they make the most of their holiday dollars.

“The Games”

Below will be what we consider to be the most important family friendly games available.


  • Minecraft (If you are buying your child a new Non-Nintendo console this should probably be the first game you buy to go with it.)
  • Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
  • Skylanders: Trap Team
  • Disney Infinity 2.0
  • Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare

Nintendo WiiU

Mario Kart 8 or Super Smash Bros. For WiiU

Nintendo 3DS

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire or Pokemon Omega Ruby

Microsoft Xbox 360

Forza Horizons 2

Microsoft Xbox One

Forza Horizons 2

Sony PlayStation 3

LittleBigPlanet 3

Sony PlayStation 4

LittleBigPlanet 3

Sony PS Vita


Board Games

Squashed Family Board Game 

Full Disclosure: We have no reviewed this game yet, but a full review is on the way!

This is an interesting strategy game that involves moving pawns around the outside of a cube. The goal is to outmaneuver your opponents as the cube rotates. You want to be the last player with a pawn on the board. This one looks interesting just for the unique game board itself.

Robot Turtles

We reviewed this one earlier this year and it is still one of the coolest learning experiences you can play with your kids. It actually manages to teach some of the basics of coding while playing a simple board game. We highly recommend it!


This strategy game intended for players six and older is simple to learn and will remain fun for a very long time. In it players place wooden tiles on a flat play area and match them up in rows by either color or shape.

There is even a travel version that is great for parents on the go (and is great for teaching colors to even younger players)!

Spot It!

This game is simple, inexpensive, and portable. Oh! And your Preschooler has a decent shot at beating you in it.

Ticket to Ride

This was one of the first board games we reviewed. It is among the best family games on the market. If your family has been entertaining the idea of starting a family game night, then this is, bar none, the best game to start with.

Forbidden Island

Most board games that families are used to playing are competitive. Forbidden Island bucks that trend by being a perfect entry point into the realm of cooperative gaming.

Minecraft Stuff

LEGO Minecraft

Minecraft is a phenomenon. It has been described as “digital LEGOs” since it arrived on the scene. It actually stunned me that it took so long for LEGO to actually get in on the action. There are tons of different sets out there.

Minecraft Hoodie

I know the stereotype is that kids hate to be given clothes for presents, but this hoodie from ThinkGeek might just fix that.

Minecraft Sheet Magnets

There is a ton of Minecraft merch out there and I dug through a lot of it to make this list. I don’t know why but something about these really sung to me. Nothing screams “perfect gift” than something that will result in lots of little magnet squares attached to the fridge. This is probably most Mom’s personal nightmare right? Aunts and Uncles looking for vengeance gifts take note. (Full disclosure: My wife made me add that last bit since she basically hates these things.)

Minecraft: The Complete Handbook Collection

The various Minecraft handbooks are a great way to encourage kids to get excited about reading by engaging with Minecraft while they aren’t at the keyboard. The information in these books is very useful. Some of the details will likely be out of date relatively quickly as the game is patched, but the theory will be useful.

Miscellaneous Gaming Gifts

LeapFrog LeapTV Educational Active Video Gaming System – $149.99

No one should call this a knockoff. The LeapTV won’t be able to unseat any of the big name consoles, but its games are guaranteed to be child appropriate.

This may be a great option for households with a significant separation between older and younger siblings. This would be one way to keep the younger sibling away from a teenagers games.

The Bag of Holding (ThinkGeek.com) – $59.99

If you get this reference… you will want to buy this thing.

Parents: It’s ok if you don’t get this reference. This will be hysterical to your son or daughter if they play Dungeons and Dragons. Trust me.

Nintendo posted another Nintendo Direct event on November 5th 2015. The show was less than an hour long, but packed a lot of information regarding several eagerly awaited titles (and some we didn’t know were coming)!

The following are the highlights of the video which can be viewed in its entirety here.

Wii U

Mario Kart 8 DLC

The first pack of DLC for Mario Kart 8 launches on Nov. 13 and features new racers, levels and karts from Nintendo properties The Legend of Zelda, F-Zero and Excitebike. Players can purchase the DLC for $7.99, but  the best deal is to purchase the two announced DLC packs for $11.99. (The second pack will feature Isabelle and Villager from Animal Crossing and will launch in May 2015.)


The amiibo figures are almost upon us and players have been wonder exactly how they will work for a while now. Nintendo has finally let loos with enough details that we can see how they will work. IN essence, amiibo figures will serve as minor add-ons to a large number of Nintendo titles. This stands in contrast to the other toys to life figurines on the market that will only function for a single game (or series of games). For example, they willallow you to create, level up, and customize a “figure character in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Multiple other games will be compatible with amiibo, including Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors in 2014.  Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Yoshi’s Woolly World and Mario Party 10 will gain the functionality at some point in 2015. This amiibo functionality will be available to players in the following games when the first wave of figures launches on Nov. 21, 2014

  • Mario Kart 8: When players tap Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Captain Falcon, Fox, Samus or Kirby amiibo figures on the Wii U GamePad controller, they will receive a Mii racing suit themed to that particular amiibo character. Players’ Mii characters can wear these detailed suits when racing in the game.
  • Hyrule Warriors: The Link amiibo figure gives players a special weapon called the “Spinner.” Every Super Smash Bros. series amiibo figure will grant randomly selected materials, weapons or rupees in the game when used.


 Splatoon was announced at E3 this year as a four-on-four online multiplayer shooter. Today Nintendo announced that it also features a single-player mode.  Players pit their squid-like “Inkling” against an massive army of octopi equipped with their own ink weaponry. Splatoon is currently slated for launch exclusively for the WiiU in the second quarter of 2015.

Xenoblade Chronicles X

I loved the original for the Wii and have been hungry for the followup since it was announced. Xenoblade Chronicles X looks like it will not disappoint. The direct quote form the press release is below:

“In this new RPG from Monolith Soft, players embark on an epic quest in a new world. Using the city of New Los Angeles as a home base, players will embark on missions, collect items and take on requests from residents. Xenoblade Chronicles X – which features a bigger world than Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii – is scheduled to launch exclusively for Wii U in 2015.”

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

The Kirby series has always been adorable. This entry in the franchise has the lovable pink puffball journeying through a world made entirely of multicolored clay. Players do not directly control Kirby this time. Instead they guide Kirby along a rainbow line that they draw on the Wii U GamePad with a stylus. It does feature a new four-player multiplayer mode  that lets one player play as Kirby and focus on drawing rainbow lines on the GamePad, while the others control a trio of Waddle Dee characters that can collect items or even carry Kirby around. Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is slated for launch for Wii U in February 2015.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Nintendo debuted a new trailer that showed off a lot more game play. Take a look at the new trailer here.  Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is one of our most anticipated games this holiday season and launches for Wii U on Dec. 5. 

Nintendo 3DS

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is one of the most divisive games in the entire franchise. It was originally released on the Nintendo 64 in the year 2000 and is being remastered for a 3d release on the Nintendo 3DS console. It “brings Link’s suspenseful, intricate quest through the mysterious world of Termina to a hand-held system for the first time with enhanced 3D graphics and added features for a smoother game experience.” It is scheduled to release sometime in 2015 and is a great addition to the bursting 3DS library. 

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.

You know we love strategy RPGs here at Engaged Family Gaming right? The genre is full of brain twisting puzzles in the form of strategic challenges. Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. by Intelligent Systems, the creators of the Fire Emblem and Advance Wars series, is a turn-based tactical action RPG that features characters like Abraham Lincoln. No that was not a typo. Abraham Lincoln leads a team of newly revealed playable characters like Tiger Lily and Tom Sawyer. Each character has unique abilities that players have to use to their fullest in order to overcome challenges. Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. will launch exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in spring 2015.

IndieCade is taking place this weekend in Culver City, California. This is a big deal for the independent games industry as a whole, but other segments of the gaming market are showing up as well.

Nintendo, one of the biggest names in the video game business is going to be there. Not only are they planning to highlight fifteen playable independent games for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS systems, but also many of the creative minds behind the games themselves.

Nintendo has even coined a new term for these independent developers who have aligned themselves with the Nintendo systems: Nindies. These “Nindies,” or Nintendo independent developers, will be at IndieCade in person show off their wares and to share their experiences working with Nintendo.

“Nintendo has always supported creativity and innovation in video games,” said Steve Singer, Nintendo of America’s vice president of Licensing. “These Nindie developers are currently making some of the most exciting and imaginative games out there, and Nintendo is pleased to offer them multiple platforms to bring their creative ideas to life.”

The Nintendo booth will feature the following Wii U and Nintendo 3DS digital games, many of which will be playable for the first time:

Wii U

  • Affordable Space Adventures from KnapNok Games: A 2D side-scrolling spaceship simulator. Players use the Wii U GamePad controller as a “Heads-Down Display” in the spaceship cockpit. Play it alone, or fly as a crew of two or three players. Exclusively on Wii U.

  • The Fall from Over the Moon Games: The Fall is a unique blend of adventure-game puzzle solving and side-scrolling action. Players take on the role of ARID, the artificial intelligence onboard a high-tech combat suit.

  • Stealth Inc. 2 from Curve Digital: Players step into the role of a clone escaping a sinister and high-tech testing facility in this puzzle-platformer. The game tests brainpower and reflexes in more than 60 levels linked together by a detailed world. Exclusively on Wii U.

  • Swords & Soldiers II from Ronimo Games BV: Like its predecessor, Swords & Soldiers II is a side-scrolling strategy game that allows players to buy units, cast spells and build structures to overwhelm their enemies on a 2D battleground. Exclusively on Wii U.

  • Runbow from 13AM Games: Runbow is a party action game for up to nine players. Platforms and obstacles appear and disappear as the background color changes, so players have to think fast, stay alive and make it to victory in Run, King of the Hill and Arena modes. Exclusively on Wii U.

  • Sportsball from TOO DX: Up to four players take the reins of exotic birds that flap, tackle and dunk balls into the net for points and glory, leaving their opponents as feathery tarred balls of shame. Exclusively on Wii U.

  • Chariot from Frima: Chariot is a physics-based co-op platformer in which a brave princess and her suitor carry a funeral wagon through ancient caves to bury the King’s remains in a gold-filled tomb.

  • Beatbuddy from THREAKS: The action-adventure Beatbuddy combines puzzle solving and enemy vanquishing with exploration, set to an original soundtrack.

Nintendo 3DS

  • Woah Dave! from Choice Provisions: In Woah Dave!, players gun for digital glory by slaughtering aliens, stealing their loose change and racking up the highest score possible.

  • Xeodrifter from Renegade Kid LLC: A story of an interstellar drifter traveling the stars on a simple mission of exploration, Xeodrifter offers classic 2D platforming, shooting and exploration game play that will test players’ skills. Exclusively on Nintendo 3DS.
